Winter is creeping up on us

We are very lucky with our weather here in South Africa. Its pretty much winter in May, but the day temperature is still above 20'C. The evenings and early mornings are becoming nippy though. I chose a weird season to become passionate about gardening, I hope my garden delivers some winter floral inspiration.

Travels from the mountains, to far away cities and into the vineyards of Paarl

A little bit later than I planned to share, but here are some of the beautiful destinations that I visited last year. I accompanied my husband to the Valley of a thousand hills in Kwazulu Natal South Africa; this is a rural area where people live in simplicity and close to nature. Next we were off to Budapest and Szeged Hungary for the Kayak Sprint World Cups. Here I tasted a few exotic foods and quite a few wines at the Szeged wine festival. In December 2014 we went to Buffels bay, a small beach town hidden off the main road to Knysna South Africa. Our road trip ended in Paarl; where we enjoyed wine, chocolate, beer and coffee tasting at the Spice Route, which I definitely recommend if you are lucky enough to visit Western Cape.

Festive greetings

This has been an eventful year. I was blessed enough to travel to Hungary and around South Africa with my husband. I experienced new cultures and made new friends, ate strange food and drank a lot of wine. Will post some photos next time ;) 
My list of things to be thankful for this year is truly too long to mention.

May you all experience peace and share this festive season with the ones you love.

Wardrobe essentials for summer

Distressed denim shorts, you can combine them with any style from sporty to boho

The white shirt, dress it up at night or just keep it casual.

Kimonos come in hundreds of styles, choose a few different ones to mix it up. They are great to throw over any outfit or even over your bikini at the beach.

A fringe leather bag is definitely worth investing in this summer.

Spring is here

The spring breeze carries away winter on her back. It’s a time of new birth and nature is yearning for the first rains to wash the last of winter's dullness away.

Man's best friend

Some cute pictures of our four legged friends, that capture the bond between human and dog. Young and old can share a special connection with these loving animals.

 The first picture is of Magnus, our SPCA rescue dog, he was due to be put down in a few days when we adopted him. Now he is a proud, healthy, very loyal part of our family.
