I have really struggled to adjust to working life after the most amazing beach holiday in the Maldives. One thing that makes it bearable is the much warmer weather here in Joburg.

Palmer's Gentle Exfoliating Facial ScrubThis week I will be trying out Palmer’s Cocoa Body Scrub and Palmer’s Gentle Exfoliating Facial Scrub. I have the products and it smells wonderful! Smells like holiday and sweets if you ask me. I know it is not a “high-end” product, but I have been surprised by cheaper products before and I’m definitely into trying new things this Spring.

ZANA has published their next Cape Town screen printing workshop. I’m not in Cape Town, but patiently waiting for ZANA to have a Joburg workshop (hint, hint, nudge, nude and stuff). Book now or you might not get a seat.

I have finally started doing something about the way the house looks. We have lived in the same house for 6 years and nothing has changed. I will be picking colours in the next few weeks and painting the walls, decor, bedding and anything that might have fallen out of my taste. Expect some pictures and tips as I go along. I might even ask for your input!

This weekend I am off to Houtbosdorp in the mountains near Haenertsburg – and close to where Coach House nougat is made… No, Houtbosdorp isn’t a real town anymore either. Just check back for a post about it and you will get to know this beautiful part of South Africa from a local.

I am trying to convince one of my besties to do a tutorial on how to get her rainbow make-up – just because I think it is pretty.
