Endless Summer

Make the most of your great outdoors South Africans love the outdoors. I ascribe this to 1) the fact that we have great outdoors and 2) the fact that we have great weather (mostly).

Cosy up to Your Outdoors

The season I’ve been anticipating ever since summer began is finally here. It’s autumn, folks! Just the other day I grinned wistfully when  — during my walk in the evening –I saw a flurry of brown leaves chasing one another down the road.

As a kid I had a list of things I wanted to achieve when I was a certain age, some were funny, some were unrealistic. 11-year-old me might be disappointed that I didn’t become fast friends with Carlton Banks (yes, the character from the Fresh Prince of BelAir) I liked the preppy clothes he wore […]

Nuptials and nature: an inside-out connection

In the past few weeks, I’ve sat spellbound through two beyond-beautiful royal weddings and wished so hard that I write a fashion blog instead of a décor one, just so that I could dedicate 500 words to their gloriousness. Oh, those dresses … those flowers … And then it hit me! The nuptials both have […]
