Ella Coffee

We live in an instant gratification world, and this means that we often don’t have the time or patience to wait for something to be ready, or we want to be able to sort things out on the run. And I feel this is exactly what Ella Coffee has brought to my life, and I […]

Marisol Candles

Hi, my name is Megan, and I am addicted to watching candle pouring videos. I love to see the wax slide through into the mould, and watch as it slowly hardens and takes on a whole new form. I love to see people’s creativity brought to life, and I am on the edge of my […]

The Piercery

I have always thought that piercings are so beautiful! I am addicted to watching piercing TikToks, and watching how curations of piercings are made to suit your ear, personality and jewellery choices. I didn’t know of anyone locally who was able to offer this experience, until I saw Roxy Burger posting about new exciting venture […]

Grow with the Flow

One thing that being in lockdown and spending extra time at home has changed for me is the amount of houseplants I have accumulated. From small to large, from upright to cascading, from green to pink – I have discovered my love of greenery and nature surrounding me, and I love taking the time to […]

Bitchin’ Tees

I know, it has been a while since my last blog. The last few weeks have been a blur, with many days rolling into one another, and 12 hour workdays becoming the norm. I feel like I am on a hamster wheel, and could be thrown off at any moment. BUT, I love the work […]

Nombz Personalized Hats

I first “met” Nombuso during lockdown when she interviewed me for a segment on SABC about living with a rare condition during the pandemic. We have kept in contact, and she often sends me the most beautiful messages to keep me motivated and smiling. Recently she contacted me to tell me about her most recent […]

Philippa French

When my friend Jane Linley-Thomas posted about some gorgeous earrings that she had had made by ladies living in Valley of 1000 Hills, I knew that I had discovered an absolute gem! Not only is this project empowering women, but it is also providing them with a skill that can be passed from generation to […]
