How to… Athleisure.

March 21, 2017

Athleisure. The term, if you haven’t already heard it, is used to describe a broad category of apparel designed to be worn both for exercising and for doing (almost) everything else. It’s rooted in leggings, tank tops and sneakers. Think yoga pants and hoodies with a bit of elevated design that looks good in or outside the gym. It’s stylish active wear, designed to be as comfortable for running errands as it is for actual running—but chic, too. Chic enough,…

Our secret hideout… with Tiny Tribe and Migi Designs

March 5, 2017

Nowadays we have access to such a wide variety of home decor items, clothing and baby ranges. I am getting lost in online shopping for our two girls. The variety online is incomparable, and with inexpensive courier services or even free at times, I’m finding it more manageable to recreate that Pinterest look! As I discover unique ranges, I’m passionate to share them with you. I’m so impressed with our South African entrepreneurs. Many of these ranges have achieved international standard in terms of quality and…

MOVEPRETTY version BLACK

February 28, 2017

MOVEPRETTY is a proudly South African, Stellenbosch-based athleisure brand, founded by two friends, olympic South African triathlete Mari Rabie and fashion designer Annelize Kotze. Today I am wearing their black mesh long leggings, teamed with a mesh top. I just love the detail of the mesh inserts. It makes this active wear also suitable for a lifestyle look! The black and white polkadot shorter leggings are fun (especially if you can match it to your daughter’s!) and in a great quality fabric so…

MOVEPRETTY in hues of blue

February 22, 2017

MOVEPRETTY is a proudly South African, Stellenbosch-based athleisure brand, founded by two friends, olympic South African triathlete Mari Rabie and fashion designer Annelize Kotze. I am the most hard-core fan of their printed leggings. They launch these in the freshest prints, every season. I’m wearing 2 styles: a long-leggy and a short-leggy (for those of you who don’t like your legs, they’ve kept you in mind as well!) The non-maternity hoodie works for my 28 week bump, but looks even better…

Show-off in Shooshoos

January 25, 2017

Shooshoos™ are designed and 100% manufactured in Cape Town, South Africa. They produce beautiful baby and toddler shoes while uplifting disadvantaged communities. I’ve always known that Shooshoos™ were around (family and friends,) but could never quite understand why they were so popular until I had my own baby. For the first 5 months of Hazel’s life, whenever I dressed her in cute “normal” shoes (I spent so much enthusiasm on acquiring while pregnant,) they would stay on exactly 5 minutes before slipping off.  From the age…

I think I’ll also wear these two items on vacation…

The IT bag for me

August 11, 2016

Mischi asked me to try out their baby bags a while ago. To this day, I receive so many compliments with it. I literally take it with me everywhere I go – you see me you see my mischi. It doubles up as my handbag… I like it so much I wanted the one in stripes too. I’ll wear it in the summer so ya’ll can see it! Mischi bags have lots of compartments for bottles, and separate little mischi bags inside to keep…
