Embellish with tassels and pom poms

July 1, 2016

tassel accessories
Tassels and pom poms are two micro trends that I’m more than happy to embrace. We’re seeing these embellishments adorn everything from earrings and bags to sandals and floaty boho tops. Homeware is not to be left out, add tassels or pom pom trim to a throw or cushion for an instant playful touch and dash of ethnic flavour.

Buy gorgeous ready made pieces like the ones I’ve featured here today or get crafty and make your own trims.

Classic appeal with Daniel Wellington

June 29, 2016

Daniel Wellington watch
I’m sure you will have heard of Daniel Wellington… this brand that has become incredibly popular and you’ll spot hundreds of gorgeous images of their watches over on Instagram. I’ve admired their beautiful watches for a while now and was lucky enough to receive one last week. 

I choose the Classic St Mawes and opted for a rose gold case. The watch arrived beautifully packaged in a plush box, first impressions do count. The watch is elegant and adds a subtle statement to any outfit. The strap is also interchangeable which is a clever feature.

Stellenbosch shed envy

The Modern Heirloom
This past weekend, I went along to a launch held at The Modern Heirloom. This venue opened towards the end of last year and I’ve been dying to go and take a look ever since. Situated on Overgaauw Wine Estate in Stellenbosch, this gorgeous shed is available for gatherings, workshops, events, weddings, photo shoots and more. I would describe the space as rustic meets modern with a clean simplicity.
