BODIE and FOU* is one of my favourite online boutique stores. They have a range of interesting collectables for the home. I particulary love their new monogram prints.
I had a little fun, and created a little studio space from items available at BODIE and FOU*. Aren’t they just amazing?

This book has landed on my wishlist. Curious stories from Curious minds has a collection of 46 stories where inspirational personalities share personal experiences of what inspired them as children. This illustrated book reveals how Curious Minds impact creativity in children’s minds.
The concept of the book was developed by the creative agency Dorothy, (see their portfolio, it’s stunning!) and raises awareness for the Curious Minds drive to provide quality arts and cultural learning activities for all children in the North West.

I’m loving this urban rustic movement lately. Rustic on white – a perfect harmony to build character to your home without the clutter. I’m big on visuals, and small on words, let this beautiful home explain this movement to you.

I’ve always admired many shapes and sizes for terrariums, but this obelisk shaped terrarium is somewhat most unique in many ways. Meg Myers has a collection of recylced glass terrariums and objects for the home. See her etsy link here.

Johannesburg designer, Fiona Goldthorpe launches a new range of 100% Natural handmade soap in collaboration with a South Africa’s Natures Skin Food. Fiona shares the tales behind the birth of this collection:
“The range is inspired by the Mexican ‘Day of the Dead’ theme. I love the graphic nature of this theme and thought it could transfer so well into this type of product. There isn’t really anything like it out there in the market. Locally designed, locally produced – each piece is lovingly and beautifully made by hand. We went through quite a lengthy process of painstaking tweaks – to 3 different moulds (for 3 different variants), laser cutting, silicone moulding etc – along with deciding on which ingredients to use that would work well. I was quite pedantic that only 100% natural ingredients are added (also vegan friendly – no animal fats) and only essential oils added – no synthetic fragrance oils, that could irritate sensitive skin. And we have emerged with a rather beautiful unique product.”
