The Month of May

I love the month of May …. Must be a hangover from my little girl days – I would wake up on my birthday to find an array of prezzies at the foot of my bed. Even though May now means I’m another year into my nearly dotage my enthusiasm for gifts has not abated despite the fact that I buy a lot of prezzies BY me for MYSELF – this birthday 2 fab pairs of shoes! I also treated myself to the old Stellenbosch Hydro (haven’t been there for years) … It’s been upgraded and it was such a joy to be there with my friend Leora.

The Nomad

Feeling refreshed and buffed I flew to Johannesburg for our Studio 8 Nomad trunk show showcasing our latest cashmere arrivals amongst other brands. The gorgeous Kim and irrepressible Barbie hosted on our behalf and the venue Ten Bompas where we also stayed was absolutely fab. Helpful staff, wonderful chef (the restaurant is superb) and I even had my own steam room in my bathroom! Can’t recommend highly enough

New In

One Teaspoon Spotted on Algria the coolest face painter in Cape Town…I fell in love and had to have.
Toni&Savannah What could be more luxurious-with-a-sporty-edge than our yummy Toni&Savannah pure cashmere pj’s……for keeping toasty and trending it.

I am watching

Lemonade by Beyoncé a couple of times a day – I’m obsessed – it’s a collaborative feast of poetry, politics and sheer raw honesty. If you’ve ever been wronged by a man (and who hasn’t??) this album will have you relating. Available on Tidal, iTunes or Amazon. A visual smorgasbord.
