crumpled goodness

How awesome are these mugs? Well, actually they're espresso cups, but they're still ridiculously sweet! I've just entered a competition over on Lucky Pony, where one lucky somebody will win a gift voucher for Entrepo 's online store. Holding all my thumbs.

it was so cold on friday night so we moved our bed in front of the fireplace!

gathering firewood

I've just come back from an amazing weekend in Porterville, about 2 hours drive from Cape Town. My boyfriend, Steve, is going to London on Sunday, so this was just kind of a last weekend away. We stayed in a beautiful log cabin on a protea farm, right on the top of the Cedarberg mountains. It was freezing up there, but well worth it!

some great type for a saturday

Amazing sticker on this old coat-hanger that's been in my wardrobe for ages. Love finding things again or even just noticing things that I haven't really noticed before.

(Please excuse the horrible quality phone picture!)

something pretty

Just love everything about these pictures of Rachel Weisz in the October issue of Marie Claire.

some quick portraits

I've been very lucky recently, because I've been able to invest in some fancy new toys - a brand new MacBook Pro and a Wacom Bamboo tablet! I feel very spoilt and happy! These are some of the first drawings that I've done with the tablet, they are not perfect, but I like them. Was going for a quick, rough look anyway. They are actually faces of my target audience, for a moodboard that I've had to put together for a presentation tomorrow... hoping it goes well!

i'm back! for now...

Hello! It feels weird typing this because I've been away from this little blog for so long. I would love to say that I have some cool plans up my sleeve, but right now, not really. To be honest I've actually been thinking about just deleting this blog and then maybe starting afresh with something new. But right now, I don't know.

In the meantime here is a phone photo that I quickly snapped earlier this week, while on the way home from Muizenberg. The clouds were insane - so much definition. So beautiful.

purple monday

A quick pic from this morning.
I've been feeling very bored with everything lately, so last week I bought a box of cheap(ish) highlights and went all d.i.y on my hair. This morning I took things to the next level... haha!

bits and pieces

i'm becoming really terrible at this whole blogging thing... don't think it's working out to be quite honest!

well, i guess it has been a super busy couple of months (!) but anyway, here are some little pieces of my life from the last while - as you can see, it's been a real mix of everything...

will try my best to do something cool on here soon!

don't panic...

I think this sweet saying might just have saved my day/week. I've been feeling so stressed out lately, but somehow, reading this, it all makes sense. Thank you so much, Weekday Carnival.
