The Organic Collector

March 7, 2017

I’m constantly collecting things from Mother Nature that inspire me. Such as these beautiful dried up mini fynbos flowers I found while shooting in 40 degree heat out in Worcester South Africa.

Desk Life with Kraftisan

October 21, 2015

Not only do I work from home but I study from home too so a clean, organised work space is key for me. I simply can not focus when my work station is topsy-turvy.

Kraftisan recently delivered a press drop with some of their latest products and I immediately feel in love with the puzzle cork pin-board. Yes let me say that again, a puzzle cork pin-board.

For an organisational-whore such as myself, a place to pin my calendar and my countless to-do lists is a must! It’s everything I love: Stylish, minimal, practical and local.

Check out their online store for all the various products they offer. Their laptop stand is next on my shopping list.

P.S I was pretty tempted to stick it up on the side of my fridge but of course my office took priority.

P.S.S Loving my new marble desk goodies too. A steal from the new H&M store and the V&A Waterfront. R230 for both the tray and the cup!

Interior Lust List 0.02

So it’s been quite some time since my last interior lust list post but being abroad for so long I am starting to miss my home and I keep thinking about fixing it up when I return to South Africa.

Also I ordered these beautiful, minimal, white draws from @home (see below) back in May and they have finally been delivered! I can’t wait to start accessorising it. I guess that also promoted today’s post.

So today’s interior inspiration is drawn from beautiful, monochromic environments with screeded flooring, bright corners and simplistic designs. I love it!

Romantic Getaway at the Greyton Treehouse

March 30, 2015

Two weekends ago I decided to spontaneously spoil Justin with a romantic getaway at the Treehouse in Greyton. I’ve been dying to try the place for the past two years and it’s always fully booked with the closest weekend availability in six months time. I managed to get a booking a week before for a Monday night but obviously not everyone has the luxury of taking a Monday and Tuesday off. One of the many perks of working as a freelance.

The Treehouse was everything I expected and more. Cute, secluded, quaint and oh-so-Greyton. If the pics don’t encourage you to try the Treehouse out the price might. For R600 p.p/p.n I highly recommend the Treehouse to any couple looking for a romantic getaway.
