CARGO (FT. THE MEETING PLACE)

This past Friday Pierre and I were invited to the opening of the coolest, vibey-est place in Stellenbosch. It’s called The Meeting Place and is situated in Dorp Street, Stellenbosch. The Meeting Place is exactly what Stellenbosch needs at the moment – it is relaxed enough for a good meal (the food is amazing and they do brekkie, lunch, dinner and everything in between) and vibey enough for a lekker kuier with ice cold beer and good wine. Just to give you an idea: They have a DJ booth for the evenings and then for breakfast serve anything from gourmet…

TIME FLIES

Every year I am broke by the 15thof February. Because it’s after hell-week. Let me explain to you what I mean by “hell-week”: on the 8this my and Pierre’s anniversary (this year was 5 years), then on the 11this Pierre’s birthday and then we’ve obviously got Valentines day on the 14th. So, it really isn’t hell-week, we just like to call it that because it sounds cooler than like “love-week” or something.  We went to Hermanus for the anniversary part of hell-week. We actually really needed the break from the apartment as we work and live and everything there, so…

BIG CITY LIGHTS

Why is it that it can simultaneously feel like January has been the longest month in the history of time and also like it was Christmas like 2 days ago? This year started with a bang and have been like one constant bang for a month (not sure how my metaphor is, but it will do). Pierre and I had our first ultimate lazy Sunday and I forgot how good it feels starting a Monday actually quite rested. Okay, so I say it was a lazy Sunday, which it was, besides my 16km morning run. I decided on this run…

SMALL THINGS THAT MOVED ME THE PAST WHILE

I haven’t done this in a while. I am not even sure if you guys like to see/read it. But, some things I just have to share. Many pretty photos of people wearing pretty things, But, mostly images that made me feel something: Be it inspired, motivated, nostalgic, moved or left in awe. Sometimes words that I find relatable or funny. I just feel that more people should see them. Here they are. I hope you find them as beautiful as I do. This is Kirsty Godso. I have her in each and every of these similar posts. Damn, this…

FIRST (OF MANY) OF 2019

My first post of 2019. I can’t believe it’s been over a month since I last posted! I have been trying to get around to it for the past like two weeks, but I have had an INSANE time! and yes, I am not exaggerating. What happened in the last month really was insane. As insane as starting your own clothing brand, but more about that in a next post. (Just going to throw a quick warning in here: this is going to be a lengthy post, I just realised I have a hell of a lot to say!) So,…

WITH A TOUCH OF PINK – ALISE CELEBRATION WEEKEND

It’s not every weekend where you drive around Cape Town in an old vintage convertible with flowers overflowing on the back seat. It does, however, happen when you have just picked up your best friend for her kitchen tea and are on your way to the Belmont Mount Nelson for high tea. High tea that turned into champagne that turned into wine that turned into cocktails that caused us and the bride to be to be late to her own bachelorette. And not by 20 minutes. By an hour and a half. So, Alise and I drove around Cape Town…

THE BIG CHOP

This weekend has been crazy (good). I have to go fetch this story on Friday where, after trying to grow my hair for ten years (and finally reached the length I wanted), I decided to chop it off. I was semi nervous, but fully excited! The only people I trust with my hair these days is HAND (short for Have A Nice Day) Hair Salon, so I have waited a few months to get to Cape Town to visit Jarryd and Andrew at HAND. Worth it. I as so beyond excited about this chop. I feel like a new person. I…
