For my bedroom, I really wanted to create a calm and peaceful sanctuary. I wanted it to have a bohemian minimalist feel with an emphasis on texture and using muted colours that work in harmony to create that calming space.
Texture plays a big part when it comes to decorating throughout my home and I love adding bits of texture, layers and patterns that come together to reflect my personal taste.View Post
hen it comes to styling up my home, I love nothing more than surrounding my space with unique pieces that add character, warmth and above all, make my home an extension of my personality.
Last year, after scouring the internet for macrame pieces and not finding the one that spoke to me, I decided to try my hand at this craft. Knotting ropes is oddly soothing and I especially love that once a project is finished, I can display my own creation in my home.View Post
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…View Post

Staying over at friends or family for the weekend can be fun, but it can also feel a little impersonal. Of course you’ll miss your own home, your own space and having your things at arm’s reach, but often the nuisance of having to bring all your beauty items “just in case” can become annoying. So what do you do? Make sure your guests enjoy their stay with you by turning your guest bathroom into their own little beauty sanctuary. Obviously, you don’t have to go all-out and make your guest bathroom resemble a spa or a hotel (unless you have the means and the ways), but there are a few finishing touches you can incorporate to make it a little more indulgent.View Post

I have a closet room cupboard full of clothes. Yet, I’m always faced with the common dilemma of not having anything to wear. It’s not that I don’t have enough, it’s just that I have a cupboard full of things that either don’t fit, don’t suit my style, or things I just can’t get rid of because I spent too much money on them. While every girl wants a well edited collection of wearable items, Spring is the perfect time to shed the excess and start working towards that dream closet goal. By dream closet, I don’t mean one that’s floor-to-ceiling-wall-to-wall, but rather a happy place, filled with pieces of clothing and items that you would actually wear. So today, I’m going to give you a quick guide to spring cleaning your closet, show you how to LetGo and even make some money on the side. Money you can use for new items that are actually YOU, and it’s all thanks to a fun, interactive mobile shopping App called LetGo.View Post
I’ve been meaning to do an updated closet room tour since moving to our new home, and also because my closet room is always a hot topic and one that is highly requested by my lovely readers on StyleScoop. We’ve been in Jozi for two years now, so it’s about dang time! This weekend, after giving my vanity table a fresh coat of paint, I thought now is the perfect time to invite you into a little visual tour of my second JHB Closet. The first one was just okay. I had set it up in the spare bedroom (benefits of not having kids haha), but I didn’t love it. It was dark and the walls were a bland and boring yellow paint (which we couldn’t re-fresh), but this one, man oh man, it’s perfect. Bright white walls, high beam exposed ceilings and so much friggin natural light! The set up is very similar to my previous one from our Durban home, it’s just bigger and a lot better. I used most of the fittings from my old setup from the very first closet room, and since I have more space in this room, I could add an extra book shelf slash shoe…View Post
Get excited, because ZARA HOME has landed in South Africa! I checked out their first South African store at the new Mall of Africa and now, I just want to re-decorate my entire home! Sigh! If only! Although, a girl can dream (can’t she?), and I’m doing just that…Here’s what I’ve got my eye on from ZARA HOME…View Post
When I was a kid, I always looked forward to the new school year. Granted, it would fizzle out after a few days back at school, but I’d get really excited about seeing all my friends again and of course, having shiny new stationary and crisp, clean notebooks to get the year started.View Post
