Lounge Around in the Coolest Tracksets

Lounge Around in the Coolest Tracksets

After the news we received this weekend, a lot of us will be spending a lot more time lounging around, or at least in lounge about clothing at home! And for that one would require stylish loungewear – am I right?

Nobody want’s to look like frumpty dumpty, so today I’m sharing three of my favourite matchy-matchy loungewear sets that will elevate your stay at home style.

Toasty Toes

Toasty Toes

We don’t think twice about to forking out thousands on killer heels and hot boots, yet when it comes to our most worn footwear- that being slippers, we cut corners and buy those cheap and nasty once-off’s that just end up in a landfill (another reason to cringe).

NO MORE! In today’s blog, I’m talking all things FLUFFY FOOTWEAR, focusing on great quality, locally made sheepskin slippers that are a treat for your feet!

The Stocking Stuffer Gift Guide

Stocking stuffers can be so much fun and with all the festive markets happening right now, you could probably find really cute, unique things that will make great stocking stuffers. If not, hopefully my suggestions today will inspire some ideas, and best of all you can shop them online.

I like to find stocking stuffers that are fun and Christmassy, so think yummy treats, delicious smells and cuteseys that make it all the more festive.

Gift Guide: Lovely Linen Luxuries

Gift Guide: Lovely Linen Luxuries

I am a wee bit obsessed with linen fabric at the moment. And guess what? I am not alone! It’s no wonder everyone loves linen, with it being such a hardy, beautiful and elegant fabric that actually looks better with age. It wears so well, it washes so well and best of all, it’s long lasting.

Giving the gift of linen this festive season is a perfect choice if you’re looking for a special gift, particularly for people who love quality, and who you may think have everything they need.

IMO, you can never have too much linen! And I don’t mean bed sheets (which half the time are anything but actual linen fabric, although those do exist, albeit at a price – but that’s another subject all together).

Gifts for the Plant Mama’s & Budding Botanists

Gifts for the Plant Mama’s & Budding Botanists

In the last couple of years, plant parenting has become a major thing, and I for one am glad! I love, love, love plants! In fact, if I had my way, I’d turn my entire house into a full on jungle, but then I think, hello spiders and I’m like errrr, no thanks! So my gardening is reserved for outdoors, with some house plants to keep me happy.

As someone who enjoys digging my hands in the soil and watching mother nature bless me with her bounty, I’ve put together a little gift guide which I think fellow plant lovers (no matter their level of gardening enthusiasm) will love.

Sustainable Gift Guide She Will Love

Sustainable Gift Guide She Will Love

When it comes to shopping for friends or family, it can often be difficult to not overload them with more useless knicknakcs that they don’t actually need. Sure, you don’t want to spend an arm and a leg on a gift (December/ Jan is already a tough time), but don’t waste your money just for the sake of buying a gift.

Ask yourself, do they really need more things that end up stashed in the cupboard, or worse yet, dumped in the landfill?

Thankfully, with more and more people wising up to eco living and sustainability, a whole world of gifting ideas and opportunities are available to us, so you can be the good friend who drives them towards a lifestyle of less waste and you will not go wrong with these great gifts…

Smells Like Christmas

Smells Like Christmas

Oh la la, it’s December and ya know what that means… CHRISTMAS TIME is here! I love Christmas, especially the smell of Christmas…. Gingerbread cookies baking in the oven, the smell of pine trees and eggnog!

The only problem is well, we live in South Africa! So, Christmas smells for us usually lean toward braaied meat and HTH. Not very Christmassy if you ask me. HAHA!

But fear not. If you yearn for a true Christmas smell, I’ve rounded up a few goodies you can get to fake that Christmas smell and make your home smell amazing for the holidays…
