▲ Mister Zimi

I love the setting and styling of this shoot so much! All the shapes, colours and pineapples are making it really hard for me to look away. Oh, and the clothes are really nice too :) Beautiful things from Mister Zimi. Modern Australian design meets Balinese. Yes please!


▲ Lexi Frame

I recently met this lovely lady and I just have to share some of her music with you. You can visit her website here and listen to all the songs on her Soundcloud page. Watch this space... this sweet voice is going places x

"Lexi Frame is a Capetonian-based songstress. Her sound has an acoustic pop base, but is far from innocent. Think strong melodies and good harmonics, with a cheeky, feisty and sometimes melancholy twist – she calls it “rebel pop”.
Lexi writes about everything from big fleeting crushes to reckless one-night-stands and isn’t shy to admit that it all comes from personal experience. “We all make the same mistakes and feel the same highs. I just want people to know they’re not alone in it.”


▲ met Liefde Photoshoot

Claudia and I had so much fun shooting a few met Liefde pics with my friend, Karlien from Happenings. We realised we have no photos of the 2 of us together - scandal - and that we just had to put a face (or faces) to our little business, met Liefde. So here we are :) And no, there was no Brandy in the Coke x

▲ Blue Cats

I'm loving these Blue Cat ceramic dishes by Leah Reena Goren. So flippen cute. I'll always have room in my house for any of her work :) Makes me so happy every time. You can buy these from her Etsy Shop. x


▲ Beautiful things

This year we had our very first Christmas as official Capetonians. This was also the first Christmas tree we've ever made :) The theme for this Christmas was 'Lemon Tree' (we take holidays and birthdays very seriously, as one should). I had little lemon decorations made out of yellow perspex as well as see through perspex hearts for extra bling. I'm not a big fan of traditional Christmas decorations and snow globes and feel there is a whole new world to explore.

In South Africa we have a beautiful hot summer Christmas, so I thought that fresh mint, yellow, white and silver was in order instead of warm wooly santa hats, fireplaces and mistletoes.

I used mint decorative placemats and deer antler napkin rings from met Liefde, petit Sanpelleorino lemonade drinks to add some extra lemon, happy yellow paper straws and serviettes. I printed the lemon botanical drawing and used it as wrapping paper, the rest of the wrapping paper is from Woolworths (love you Woolies). It was a very very beautiful Christmas indeed! xxx
