we love ~ journals | tote bags | writing sets

Roxies & Monies, started by two sisters in Jeffrey's Bay, to enable them to earn a little extra cash and help their community. One look at their website and I was sold! I am especially in love with their journals (for only R30!) and the 'Nerds have more fun' tote bag!

how cute??

Go and have a browse on their website, their stuff is gorgeous and definitely worth a browse :)

events ~ the lot launch ~ canal walk

Last Thursday I went to the launch of The Lot at Canal Walk, and what a fantastic evening it was! Conveniently located opposite Honey Child and YDE, this is the place to be at Canal Walk. On arrival we were spoiled with champagne and red velvet cupcakes as well as a personal tour of the new store by owner, Ash Battle.

Beautiful black and white canvas prints adorned the walls and sets the scene for a retro shopping experience. And the clothes! What beautiful pieces there were, I simply did not know where to look first! There were maxi dresses, gorgeous jumpsuits, crop tops, high-waisted denim shorts and so much more.

Thank you to the lovely ladies for being so helpful!

Spilt Milk swimsuits, gorgeous!

The ladies could have their nails done by Nail Dresses; 'I <3 the Lot' Nail Dresses were made for the occasion. Too lovely!

Girls being girls, my friend Tara and I had about 15 pieces to try on; eventually we narrowed it down to two gorgeous pieces - Tara bought a gorgeous cardigan and I am absolutely in love with the polka dot vest I bought, lucky girls!

There was also a small section of Wardrobe pieces, a store which Ash also owns. I also was lucky enough to meet Jo Alexander who owns the clothing label Moth Clothing - also such beautiful pieces!

Jo Alexander and Ash Battle - was lovely to meet you both!

I <3 The Lot :)

All in all the shop looked aboslutely amazing, and there is no doubt that it will be hugely successful!
Congratulations Ash!

Do yourself a favour and browse the rest of the photos too, the photography is amazing and gives you a taste of what rocking the daisies was like - epic!

What is beautiful? "A strong brow, bedroom eyes, a bump on the nose," says Bobbi. "
It's not about looking perfect. It's about looking and feeling like yourself, only prettier and more confident." - Bobbi Brown

events ~ St Yves Press Launch

Last Thursday, the 13th October 2011, St Yves hosted a highly successful media, celebrity and VIP guest launch.

St Yves, being one of Cape Town's most sought after Camps Bay beach clubs was sure to put on a spectacular event when they opened its doors to media, celebs and VIPs alike. And a spectacular event it was indeed! 

Guests were greeted with champagne and oysters on arrival and later indulged in the Simply Italian tapas tasting.
Entertainment included live ice sculpture demonstrations by Ice Art as well as a mini fashion show which exhibited the latest fashions from Diligo and jewellery by JOYA - (absolutely gorgeous stuff, do yourself a favour and take a look at their websites).
