taking photos while driving

I know, the title sounds rather ridiculous, but it is this weird fascination that I have. As a self-proclaimed excellent multi-tasker, I end up snapping photos with my phone almost every time I'm driving around. Who can blame me? When you live in Cape Town and you have that incredible mountain staring right at you, you cannot resist.

Paris vs New York

I love this amazing series of illustrations by graphic designer Vahram Muratyan. He calls it a "friendly visual match between those two cities."  Awesome.

Since I had Lasik eye surgery earlier this year, I love having the option of choosing to wear glasses if I'm feeling that vibe, instead of having to wear them. 

Chapel bags

I love these bags,
I carried mine all around New York and got several envious looks and many requests as to where it was from. 
 Get hold of the designer, Caleb, at or on 
The bags are sold at Field Office (Barrack Street, Cape Town).

Pedersen + Lennard

I am so obsessed with this beautiful bamboo table. I need it for my dining room, 
and these sweet bucket chairs in cream and blue would do just fine as well. 
Visit Pedersen + Lennard and the rad guys behind it, Luke and James, at The Field Office (Barrack Street, Cape Town) or online at

Dear Rae tiles

I cant wait to put these Dear Rae tiles around my fireplace in my new home :)

One of my favourites in the world to look at, Miss Cheryl Cole, seen here in Harpers Bazaar. Breathtaking.

up in the air somewhere

There are no words to describe how obsessed I am with Susan Dwyer's range of beautiful ceramic cups, bowls and vases. She has a Chicago based studio, and is inspired by the city's skyline. Obsessed.

a great room

I love the feel of this room, plus i love wallpaper.

obsessed with coffee

I am slightly addicted to coffee. The coffee at the Field Office ( Barrack street Cape Town ) is amazing! and beautiful. See below. For on the go, I would love to have my coffee in this beautiful ceramic cup


Now that we have potentially found our house, I am getting very excited about furnishings. I have A LOT of stuff. So pretty storage items are a must. I love both of these.
