Luxe gift guide & Black Friday sales

November 27, 2015

So Black Friday frenzy is upon us and there are some fantastic sales on the go. Shopping is on everyone’s minds and I’ve put together a stunning luxe gift guide to get you going. A few of these items are not on sale but I’m sure you’ll be tempted anyway! Most of the items featured below are from Shopbop who are running Black Friday sales as is Gray Malin, I absolutely love his aerial beach prints.

Leo & Lola – Charming baby boutique

November 26, 2015

Leo and Lola baby boutique
Earlier this week I popped into the brand new Leo & Lola which is such a great addition to the Palmyra Junction shopping centre in Claremont. This little baby boutique is packed full of gorgeous goodies and is the perfect spot to find something special for your little one. They stock locally made products as well as specially selected finds from abroad. They have a lovely selection of clothing and toys, natural baby body products, baby blankets, gifts and nursery decor. I spotted the prettiest dresses and such adorable soft baby toys. 

Owner, Sam, is currently working on their online store so keep an eye out for that in the new year. In the meanwhile you can keep up to date via facebook and instagram and be sure to visit them of course.

Aureum Design – contemporary textiles

November 24, 2015

Aureum Design
Nicole Levenburg is a talented, young textile designer and fine artist based in Johannesburg. Without realising it, I first came across Nicole’s work via Anatomy Design. Their stunning SG Chair is covered in a gorgeous indigo fabric designed by Nicole. And then recently, I discovered Nicole’s online store, Aureum Design, where one can find a selection of totes, bags, scatters, napkins and placemats made up in her stunning textiles. Yes, I’m thinking my sofa could certainly do with a scatter revamp!
