Daphne Accessories – Churche

May 2, 2017

Daphne-Accessories-Churche-1

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?!

kamers-2017-7

If you guys are looking for something fun to do this public holiday or over the weekend then you should definitely pay South Africa’s biggest pop-up event Kamers a visit. It’s being held at one of the most beautiful establishments in Joburg, St John’s College and is on from April the 26th to April the 30th.

It was my first time visiting Kamers in over 3 years and I must say there were quite a number of stalls that took my credit cards fancy, which I was pretty pleased about. I got to discover a few new local brands which I had never heard of before as well as see some in real life that I follow and admire on Instagram. I was really impressed by the whole set-up, there is loads of space so you don’t feel like you’re on top of the stranger next to you, trying on their 5th pair of sunglasses, while you try to suck down a gourmet churro (yes there is a churro stand!!!) there is also a nice mix of stalls selling everything from clothing to jewelry to kid’s clothing/toys to skin care items to antiques and the list goes on.

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

Desmond and The Tutus – What Am I Gonna Do With You

April 13, 2017

 

Desmond and The Tutus have just released a brand new video for their song ‘What Am I Gonna Do With You’. It was filmed in 2016 on the band’s recent tour of Japan and it’s too awesome! I mean it was shot in one of the best cities in the world and this song is pretty damn cool too, so it’s a win-win situation.

Well done to Fausto Becatti, Thomas James Revington, Jordan Koen, Jarryd Duhoit and Mushroom Media for making it.

Crumbs and Cream

Crumbs and Cream
I don’t know if it’s just me but suddenly there seem to be a lot of ice-cream shops opening up all over the place, which I’m not complaining about because I love me some ice-cream. So here I am about to tell you about the newest one I’ve come across, which has just opened up in my all time favourite suburb Illovo.

Yip Crumbs & Cream have come to my neighbourhood and they’ve brought with them the ever delicious looking ice-cream cookie sandwich. So imagine if you will an assortment of freshly baked cookies and an array of creamy ice-creams all waiting for you to smoosh together into one big happy family that you can then eat.
