A Day in Kalk Bay
Kalk Bay is one of our favourite spots near Cape Town. The views, the shops and the food are out of this world. If you get a chance to go, make sure you visit Olympia Cafe and walk along that road. The shops are all small boutiques or eclectic little gypsy-like stores.
Typography is sexy
There’s nothing I love more than beautiful typography. Its the art and technique of arranging type in order to make a language visible and unique. Typography is one visual element that can be used to create great web design. It can also provide visual punctuation and graphic accents to help readers to connect text with images, and headlines with content.
Rocking The Daisies 2011

The Secret Garden of my Dreams
Ever since we were young, we were obsessed with the film ‘The Secret Garden’ and growing up we were fortunate enough to have a huge lush garden where our imagination would run free. Truth be told, we never really gave up of the secret garden dream and if we had the opportunity to re-live our childhood, this is kind of what we imagine it would look like.

Faux Fur Fantasy
Dont get me wrong, I love fur at the moment, but as long as its as fake as they come. Dont condone wearing real fur.

It feels like Floating..

Steps to the Stars- Easter Vortex 2011
We are SO excited for this year’s vortex, a psychedelic trance adventure taking place 170 km’s out of Cape Town over a four day/three night period this Easter. “Simply put, a psychedelic experience is something that allows you to experience yourself in a new way.
