More of me in Cape Town

Hello Sailor!

So I was lucky enough to get a job interning at GLAMOUR South Africa, and their offices are in Cape Town so instead of leaving mid-November like all the other kids did, I stayed! Gladly too because truthfully, monotony settles in very quickly when there is nothing to do but party up a storm. So I am staying in the legendary Observatory with some legendary people and this post is to show one of the awesome places in this old neighbourhood. Hello Sailor, is found on Lower Main road and cool Capetonians are always there. The name 'Hello Sailor' is an ode to the prostitutes and promiscuous women who would proposition sailors but also to the owner of the establishments family who were sailors. Take a squizz at the photo's and make time to pop in give 'Hello Sailor' a wave.










Thank you Antonia Heil for the images.

You, Me & Everyone We Know Market

Which was also a night market.
I had had the 28th of October marked in my mind, not only because it was my birthday, but also because it was the day of the night market. My birthday went off exceptionally well (with a gifted iPad) but the night market was postponed due to weather concerns. So, the 4th of November brought the night market and a very excited me. The market was hosted at the Labia and there were many exciting Capetonians in attendance, notably Barbara Lotter of Babette clothing who had a good stall there. The location was cramped but it was difficult to mind with the cool clothing stalls at every corner, the eclectic music pounding and stiff bodies swaying. With pounding music in mind I do feel terrible for all the movie goers who were hoping to see a quiet show at the Labia. Sorry. I thoroughly enjoyed myself and left the market happily, with a new (or used) polka dot blouse and heeled pink and white brogues in brown paper bag. I now promise to be a night market regular. Stolen pictures.

Lea Colombo

Illustrator, Photographer & Really cool Capetonian


I found these photographs and illustrations while trolling around the internet. I love the 60's Polaroid effect with the simple illustrations drawn over them. They have this really creepy and enigmatic feel to them. The reason I love them the most is because the illustrator and photographer, Lea Colombo is Capetonian!















I got really excited and uploaded so many images.

Thanks Lea Colombo and Mr Price 'In the fashion loop' blog

All my All Stars

"Chuck Taylors", "Converses", "All Stars", "Chucks" or "Cons, "Chuck Taylors"


I'm dying to have a pair on new all white All Stars. I see them everywhere and I really want! I got my first pair in 2005 and they've been holding strong (and dirty) as all Chuck's should. So, this weekend is my birthday and I now have a gift idea. For myself.





Thanks to The Sartorialist for the Converse Tags (and also making my life)

Para-Para-Paradise

When she was just a girl, she expected the world


I didn't go to the Coldplay concert in Cape Town because I'm not a particular fan but I somehow seem to be engulfed in the post-Coldplay mania and this amazing new music video is the reason for this insistent persistence.

I love it. And I love elephants and animal rights.
