Hair today...

I love photos of hair! So so much. They just look so beautiful. Long hair is best :) (can't wait for mine to grow!)
Actually, I think I just have a thing for hair in general...
Anyway, check these out...

Stop-motion ftw

Pretty cool Amazon Kindle ad

What's in YOUR bag?

This is a pretty cool idea I came across on Flickr...
The Flickr group is called What's in your Bag. The idea: "Photos of the contents of your bag. (extra points given for used tissues.) The ideal ‘what’s in your bag’ photo will have mainly the contents of your bag spread out and the bag itself with notes. Lots and lots of notes. So simple."

My bag is always a bottomless pit/ black hole... Trying to lay out the contents of my bag would take a lotta space and time. Maybe I'll try one day...

Seen on the street...

Don't kill the world. Love.

I heart Durban!

Some pics from lunch at Zack's at Wilson's Wharf, Durban. What a lovely day, hot with a cool sea breeze... perfect :)
I love Durban.

A thought...

So it was Saturday night and I was getting a lift home... and the car broke down. More specifically, one of the front tires came loose. This was ok, since we were on a road with lotsa humps so were driving really slow... but had we been on the highway doing 80km/hr or more (which we were just earlier that day), the car would very likely have flipped and I might not have been here today.
Hectic, right? Yes.
It was a bit of a wake-up call and made me so grateful for things I sometimes take for granted.
Everything happens for a reason.
All I can say is, God is great.

Also, a belated comment on Saturday's I Heart Market: It was great! Went well and I'm stoked :) Many thanks to all who supported.

500 Days of Summer

I watched 500 Days of Summer on Saturday, been dying to see it for months!
It was sooo cool, really loved it. I wanna see it again! The soundtrack is great as well.
Watch the trailer, and go see the movie :)

Happiness is... the Antique Café

So there's this little antique shop and restaurant on Churchill Road in Morningside, Durban (near Windermere centre, if you know the area) called the Antique Café. It is the most awesome place to go to for lunch/ coffee/ a snack. I love antiques, and the stuff they've got at this place is just beautiful. The food is great and not pricey. My fave is the chilli-choc muffin, it's so so yummy. Muffins are served in a little clay pot with beautiful old cutlery.
This time I decided to try something different and be a bit adventurous. I had the avo, brie and onion marmalade on toast. I had never tried brie before... turns out it's an acquired taste.. for me :P I didn't like it at all. But apart from the brie, it was great, and nicely presented as well :)

I love this silver jug! So pretty.

The outside area and one of the rooms inside...

One of the walls inside, at the entrance...

The floor in one area inside! How cool!
(Yes, it's the same dress and shoes from before. Purely coincidental, I do have other clothes, haha :P )

In one of the other rooms inside...

I'd move in there tomorrow if I could :)

Happiness is... Durban's beeyootiful Botanic Gardens!

They have the yummiestest crumpets ever (with syrup, butter and ice-cream or cream)! Just thinking about them makes me crave. Cheap as well :) nomnomnom

Cool blog

Check out this cool blog and some cool product stuffs over at champ + rosie . Love the tote bags.

Happiness is...brownies!!!

Flip, how yummy does this look?! Epic yumness. I haven't had the time to make these myself yet, but I've tasted them and they are sooooooo good. Definitely in the top 3 brownies I've ever tasted. Check out the recipe on Onedaybox's blog - brownies! I'm gonna make me some soon :) nomnomnom

1 of my fave songs at the moment...

This is Owl City, a one-man band I came across a few weeks ago. Their new album, Ocean Eyes, is pretty cool, and this song is my favourite at the moment. Have a listen :)


How cute are these brooches? They're in the latest Frankie mag.

Happiness is... fairy lights!!

Oooooh I'm so stoked, got myself some fairy lights (I've been wanting some for aaages! not for Christmas, just for fun) and I LOVE them! They make me feel happy :)

New goodies!

Last Saturday at the I Heart Market

I was much more organised this time, what with it being my second market and not depending on other people. Was stoked with the way the table looked :)
This Saturday's the last market for the month! Make sure you're there!

Happiness is... cool music :)

Just discovered this band today and i LOVE this song! cool music video as well, check it out...

"Said The Whale formed in 2007 as a collaboration between songwriters Ben Worcester and Tyler Bancroft. The pair’s debut EP, Taking Abalonia, featured sunny west coast indie pop, with breezy harmonies, shimmering guitars, and lyrical tributes to their home city of Vancouver."

Happy Thursday everyone :)

Pics from yesterday... I was way too tired to upload last night. Really loving this rainy weather so so much... Everything is so green and lush! Even the humidity's nice (when it's not too hot)...

Happiness is... experimentation & lace

So this happened...

I'm loving the hand-embroidered line-drawing kinda thing. And I LOVE lace! These were done with old fabric and lace to give them that old/vintage/slightly-discoloured-with-age look. They are pin badges at the moment, but I'd like to do other stuff with them as well. Tell me what you think of these :)

Made some other new stuffs as well, will upload later :)
(These will all be on sale at the I Heart Market this Saturday! Be there!)
