I have a little textile design obsession of late and discovering the work of talented artist Nicole Levenberg did all of that só good :) I love how she treats every single piece as an individual work of art and how she's doing something other than patterning like every other textile designer. Dreamy use of colour and fantastical compositions have me all excited! You can visit her website to view all her work.

▲ Zietsies Guest House


End of June can only mean one thing, Birthday Party! I've been wanting to go to Zietsies (in Brixton, JHB) for a long long time now, and this year was the year. We had a little cosy breakfast one cold Sunday morning and boy it was so much fun and the venue couldn't have been more perfect! The Glass Cage is a beautiful little dining area with a lovely view, chandeliers, plastic swans and a piano. We had an exquisite breakfast and a fantastic time. You can book Zietsies for breakfast, dinner or lunch. You can have a private function or just a small 'do' for two. Visit the website to see more :)
