beach babe checklist

one of the reasons I love Cape Town so much has to be the beautiful beaches which are quite literally on our door step. White sand, turquoise water – albeit a tad chilly – and sunny skies. Summer is just around the corner and I can’t wait. I’m getting beach ready and thought I’d share some beach essentials which every beach babe should tick off her checklist…

kamers vol geskenke 2013 part 1


I love supporting local: designers, artists, food artisans – South Africa has a plethora of talented people that truly make our country a special and unique place to call home. Yesterday I visited Kamers Vol Geskenke – literally rooms filled to the brim with gifts. It’s an annual gift fair, started in 2003, where creative people come together to be inspired, encouraged and supported in a local setting. With a backdrop of the Cape’s most beautiful wine farms and Pretoria and Bloemfontein’s most stylish venues, Kamers has become a countrywide feast for the eyes and inspiration for the soul.









This Kamers show is from 5-10 November at the Webersburg Estate in Stellenbosch, but if you’re up-country you can still catch the December show in Pretoria from 3-8 December.
