Salt Keeper

Salt Keeper

I’m on a mission! A mission to add some colour and functionality to my kitchen. When hubby bought me a Le Creuset Whistling kettle, I spotted the Salt Croc (or salt pig as some call it) at the boutique store and was like, “no ways this thing will work in Durban”. As it is, my… Read More

Fire & Ice Cape Town

Fire & Ice Cape Town

Earlier this month, the hubz and I headed over to Cape Town to watch Bon Jovi! What an amazing concert – dude can still rock out! Not bad for a 51 year old man – although he still looks like he’s in his 30′s! On the day of the concert, we stayed at the Protea Hotel… Read More

Le Creuset Love

When we moved into our new place (almost two years ago),  I really started to lust for Le Creuset in my kitchen! Being very country/ gourment style, Le Creuset really suits the look of my kitchen. Plus it is awesome to cook with! Last week, I bought… Read More

<em>Cute & Clever Storage</em>

Cute & Clever Storage

I’m a little OTT when it comes to storing and organizing stuff. You’ll know this if you’ve seen my closet room, my makeup storage ideas (here and here) or how I store my bling rings so that I can find and see them. The only thing that was a little out of control, was my hair accessories. They… Read More

One of the things I’ve been putting off, but really feel I need to focus on again, is sorting out my desk. It’s still filled with beauty products from last years’ features and old press releases. I love this desk by blogger Peep My Style… Here are some items I have my eye on… I… Read More
