Hotel Room Picnic with Krone

Have you ever gone on a picnic, where you’ve packed a bunch of delicious snacks, carefully carted around real glass wine glasses and laid it all out on a beautiful blanket… only to find that you’d forgotten a bottle opener? Of course you have, and so have I. Many times. That’s why I think that Krone’s […]

A Weekend In Riebeek-Kasteel

Because I love what I do so much, it sometimes feels like I’m pretty much always working. I’m always taking pictures and Instagramming and Tweeting and writing blog posts and meeting people for work and having coffee dates for work and yes, even tasting wines for work. Sometimes I go away for work. Sometimes I […]

Margot Molyneux S/S 2016

Margot Molyneux S/S 2016

Margot Molyneux is my favourite local designer. Her cuts are exquisite and she uses the softest fabrics that hang and fold perfectly on the body. Her stuff is classic, basic in the best way and always feels amazing when I’m wearing it. Margot sent me something from her latest range, Colour Field, available online now. […]

Cocktails, Sunset and a Staycation at the Radisson Blu Waterfront

Cocktails, Sunset and a Staycation at the Radisson Blu Waterfront

I remember coming to visit Cape Town as a teenager (I grew up in Joburg) and wanting nothing more than to watch the sunset over cocktails at the Radisson Bu Waterfront.
