Jessica Anne Clothing

My lovely friend Jessica has just recently started her very own clothing label called Jessica Anne and she makes the sweetest pieces that are simple yet beautifully designed and perfect for anyone who wants to add a bit of girly fun to their wardrobe.

I love her matching two piece sets made up of a tank top and A-line skirt, they make me think of those great scenes in old movies where youngsters go to the malt shop for a milkshake in their bobby socks and high ponys. I love them!

Jess’ aim is to create pieces for women who are looking for beautiful, contemporary clothing that also have a classic elements to them and I think she’s done just that!

Nina and I

Becoming a mom is probably one of the best things I have ever done with my life and when I think about the connection that I share with my kids I get so emotional because it’s so real and special and I feel like nothing or no one could ever take it away from me.

So when Nina James and I were invited by the lovely folk at L’Occitane to be a part of their Mother’s Day campaign, which celebrates the connection that every mother has with her child, I jumped at the opportunity. We got to try out some of their amazing products while playing around in my bedroom and the result is this little video, which is such a true reflection of our relationship, because we do pretty much everything together when I’m at home and I know that 20 years from now I’m going to watch it again with her and probably cry!

Daphne Accessories – Churche

This year I promised myself that I would try to do as many shoots as I can with Adi under our label Churche. We love working with local labels, we love the time and effort that has been put into designing or creating what they have to offer and that’s why we were so excited to shoot these beautiful hand rolled scarves made by Daphne Accessories.

These locally manufactured scarves are designed by Danica, who is super sweet and really talented! I love her quirky designs because they are unlike anything I have ever seen before and they involve cats! Made in South Africa from Kashibo fabric with hand-rolled edges, these pieces will have you feeling super fancy in no time. Another awesome thing about Daphne Accessories is that all her scarves are limited edition pieces, so if you buy one you’ll be one of only a lucky few to have that specific print. How cool is that?!

Adi and I have been dying to do a Churche shoot! The last time we worked together I was so huge and almost ready to give birth to my baby Rex. It’s been a good few months since we’ve teamed up to shoot something for our little collective and that’s why I’m so excited to share this new series with you that we created for local jewelry designer Henriette Botha’s new range.

Hello my baby loves

The other day I met a couple of awesome ladies who run a local label called Koco Bino, they have a sweet little boutique in Sandton City (Shop U81A ) jam packed full of babies, toddlers, young kids and moms-to-be clothes and just recently they launched their very own range: Koco Bino for Kids which they invited me to check out.

Their baby range is super cute, they’ve gone for graphic yet simple designs, but all the pieces are versatile and not your typical baby stuff, they’ve had fun with stripes and crosses, polka dots and nautical bits and pieces. Their toddler range is a bit fancier but definitely worth checking out if you’re looking for something to put your little one in for a special occasion. They stock all sorts of items from hats to shoes to dresses and suits as well as cool little bits and pieces like toys, prams etc

Tiny Humans Clothing

When I went through NJ’s cupboard near the end of last year I had a huge pile of clothes that she hadn’t worn or had only worn once and I’m experiencing the same thing now with Rex. He’s quite the little eater so I have a stack of things already that just do not fit his wonderful fat little body anymore. He’s so cute!

Now there are a few things that one can do with these clothes, you can obviously donate them, which is amazing, or you can hand them down to relatives/friend’s babies, or you can make them into little bronze statues (I’m not judging if you if that’s your thing), or you can check out this nifty local company called Tiny Humans clothing.
