(Holiday) Home Improvement

I’ve already started planning for the summer holiday. My parents will be joining us, well they’ve organised for hubby and I and my brother and his partner to spend the holidays with them at the beach house they’ve rented on and off since I was a kid. So I suppose technically we’ll be joining them. […]

Blank Canvas

I’m not about to tout myself as a champion of minimalism, one need only look inside my little shoe cupboard to realise that I don’t quite believe that less is more. I would much rather have scatter cushions on my sofa than not; I won’t just have a bouquet of flowers on my coffee table, […]

Sitting Arrangements

As humans we are creatures of habit, we like sitting at our favourite table at our local spot all the time; sitting across from our closest friend to analyse any awkward situation and catch up on the latest trends. We also do it so that we can exchange looks of disdain and hilarity. If you’re […]

Looking ahead

The weather hasn’t been very spring-like in the last couple of days, in fact it’s been much like a Cape winter, which is very ironic because as most of the country is covered in mud and seldom-fabulous rain coats the people of Cape Town have sunshine. With the skies this gloomy, it’s very tempting to […]

The Full Picture:Bigger is Better

Picture it: you’ve found your dream home after months of searching. The backyard and garden are an entertainer’s vision, big enough for that gas braai stand, and the outdoor furniture you have been eyeing and can host your closest friends. There is enough garden for your furry friends to play in  to their hearts’ content.. […]
