My Hair Secret: Clipin Hair

My Hair Secret: Clipin Hair

Over the past 18 months, my hair has been through a lot. It’s been dark and very blonde and several shades of pink…and everything in between. It’s been bleached and colour treated and heat styled pretty relentlessly. I like experimenting, what can I say? My stylist (ask for Carlos, at Scar) is incredible and he […]

Have you visited a shopping centre in the middle of the day in the middle of the week recently? I seem to remember them being complete ghost towns in my childhood? But I had a Cavendish Square gift voucher burning a hole in my pocket recently and let me tell you, people are shopping at […]

Sussex House – Creating Our First Home

Sussex House – Creating Our First Home

This post is going to feel monumentally long because it’s so full of photos. Turns out Keenan and I bought our little Woodstock apartment exactly 111 weeks ago. I know because that’s when I posted the first photo of the space. Completely bare and deceptively tiny-looking. We’ve come a long way since then. We’ve spent […]

Looking back on 2016

Looking back on 2016

I wrote a post like this at the end of last year, and it was such a great way to reflect and take stock. This time of year is always so packed, so it’s easy to get caught up and rush to the end of the year and then rush into the new year and […]

Local Loves for Festive Season

Local Loves for Festive Season

There are so many things to love about this time of year. The weather, the hundreds of get-togethers with friends, the popping of bubbly bottles, the excuse to shop until your credit card bursts into flames. I’m really feeling the festive spirit this year, and I think it’s due to the fact that we put […]

The Most Beautiful Wedding Video

The Most Beautiful Wedding Video

In September this year, my little sister got married in Bali. It was so so beautiful and special and I honestly cried from start to finish. I’ve watched her wedding video about 5 times and sobbed every time. Key moments that push me over the edge: When her voice cracks as she says “Nicholas” in […]

My Cape Town Shopping Guide

My Cape Town Shopping Guide

I’m not pedantic about this, but I do enjoy shopping local. Of course you’ll find me in H&M and in a Billabong swimsuit, but I find it especially exciting to shop South African brands and designers. Cape Town is a total hotspot for local designers and artisans, so if you’re coming to visit this summer, […]
