New year things

This is going to be quite a year. A year of many lasts and also, many firsts. For one, I’ve got about seven more months of being a minor, and yes, I intend to make the most of my last few months of not being an adult. (It even feels weird to type that word). […]

The Artist | Mimi Chuan

I’ve been following Mimi on Instagram for the longest time, and I finally reached out recently to ask if she’d like to be featured over here on the blog. Mimi, known as Mimskii on Instagram, creates the most beautiful ceramic pieces that are simple, yet striking and quite lovely to look at. I asked Mimi […]

Rocherpan Nature Reserve

Recently, I spent a calm weekend at the Rocherpan Nature Reserve near Velddrif. Even although the pan isn’t completely full, there is an abundance of birds, beautiful vegetation and serenity. As far as I know, there is one main hiking trail within the reserve, and a picnic spot. There are also a few bird hides […]

Green Musings / Babylonstoren

Babylonstoren is one of my favourite places. I could spend all day sipping their deliciously fresh  juices and eating popsicles made from fresh fruits and herbs straight off the farm. I adore the many gardens, each with their own unique beauty. Its such a treat to have a good old stroll through this lovely, peaceful […]

As soon as you step inside, its easy to forget that you’re in the middle of a suburban mall. The leather upholstery, dramatic lighting, and moody interiors make for an incredible ambience. They […]

Durban Diaries / Day 3 

Hello We left Ballito today and ventured into the Midlands. The weather here was much hotter than in Ballito and it felt like pure summer. We stopped very briefly but mostly just pushed on to reach our accommodation before dark. It was a lovely, but tiring day. Can’t wait to share my adventures with you […]

Durban Diaries / Day 2 

Hello   This morning, I woke up to sunny skies and gentle breezes along the beautiful Dolphin Coast. After 6am, it was already bright! After breakfast, I took a little stroll around the hotel and took a few planty photos.  We then went to the beach for a little bit before heading out to Durban itself.  […]
