Good Stuff 07. / Titch

If you’ve been reading my blog for a while, you’ll know that I love finding South African brands that create beautiful, high-quality products whilst maintaining ethical and environmentally friendly production processes and business practice. Titch has been on my radar for ages now. So many of their beautiful leather bags are on my “one day […]

On Personal Growth

This year, due to my being home most of the day, I’ve had some extra time to myself. (I don’t think I’ve realised how much time we spend in our daily lives commuting, until this year!) I’ve done a lot of thinking, reflecting and reading. I’ve had a lot of time to really dig deep […]

Some things never change

When lockdown first started, the prospect of being stuck in my room for weeks doing my university work all alone without my friends who I grew to love so quickly, felt crushing. It took me a while to wrap my head around the strange way that 2020 was playing out. Sometimes, I still can’t. And […]

Dreamlands by Yomagick

I came across Yomagick on Instagram and was instantly blown away by these beautiful dreamscape scenes. They feel surreal, like something out of a children’s storybook world. There is something so deeply beautiful and incredibly dreamy. My impulse would be to climb into these and take a nap.  Sometimes you come across work online that is […]

On self-care habits

The internet has made it seem as if self-care has to entail face masks and online shopping. And whilst these things are lovely, there is great value in making self-care a habit that we incorporate into our daily lives, rather than something luxurious and indulgent that only happens once in a blue moon. I tend […]

Tell Your Friends About Your Dreams

I’ve come to learn that setting goals is the easy part. The real test comes in when it’s time to knuckle down and get to work to ensure that those goals are achieved. In highschool, it was always drilled into us that our goals need to be SMART (specific, measurable, achievable, realistic and timebound). And […]

Notes on being kind to yourself

We’ve heard it all before. “Speak to yourself the way you’d speak to a friend”. “Treat yourself the same way you treat the people you love.” But in reality, it’s much harder to be kind to yourself than the quotes on Pinterest would have you believe. One thing that makes it especially difficult is that […]

On learning online

This year,  most students have had to to transition to online learning. You’d think that as the “digital generation”, this would be easy, but it has been quite a feat. Aside from teething issues with online learning platforms, studying and learning from home has brought on a whole new set of challenges (and ways to […]

The movies lie

As someone who watches a lot of movies and reads even more books, I’ve been exposed to just about every type of ideal girl trope there is. Sometimes, it’s the nice girl who does whatever it takes to make herself liked and be well-perceived by those around her, even if she loses the essence of […]

On facing the discomfort…

We live in a world that is undeniably unjust. It feels like every other day, we are bombarded by the news of yet another tragic event that reminds us of this pertinent fact. If you’re anything like me, this can lead you to feeling incredibly helpless. These things feel so big that it seems impossible […]
