A while back I was watching an episode of Modern Family and it in Mitchel gets a voucher for a service that literally does anything for you when you don’t have the time or the inclination to do it yourself. I was literally watching this and thinking, man that is so awesome I wish we had something similar here…. Well, guess what?! We do!
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!
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!
These days you can pretty much get whatever you want online, which is amazing especially if you are anything like me…I love sitting on my laptop in bed browsing sites and adding things to wishlists and carts. I love the fact that if I want something I can just click a button and boom it gets delivered to my front door and I don’t need to do anything other than unwrap and enjoy what I’ve spoilt myself with.
Since having two kids our laundry feels like it has literally tripled, even though the extra member of our family is only a tiny tot! In our house there is always laundry being washed, hung up and ironed, it’s like Groundhog Laundry Day. I don’t often do product reviews on appliances on my blog, but I was really interested in this particular machine called a Spindel which is a laundry spin dryer promising to remove excess moisture from laundry so that it dries faster and feels softer.
At first, when it arrived at my house I was a bit skeptical, I wasn’t sure that this device that looks a bit like R2-D2 was going to make any difference, but I’m happy to say that I was wrong! And before I continue with this post I’d like to make it clear that I have not been PAID to write a positive review about this device, I was given one BUT this post contains my honest opinion about it.
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?!
