Spent the afternoon playing in Roodebloem Studio’s with Adidas a couple weeks ago, and this was the result. Vespa & I had a rad time previewing the forthcoming collections and collabs! Farm, Jeremy Scott & Rita Ora are a couple of cool cats to join forces with the sportswear brand, and without giving anything away… YOU WILL BE OVERWHELMED!
Happy birthday to my best fashion & fur friend Vespa. It’s been three years and I can’t imagine my life with out you!

Day 4, we hopped an early flight to Mauritius. My preconceptions melted away when we arrived at LUX* Belle Mare. The people were so warm, not in the “this is my job kind of way” more in a “let us show you how it should be done kind of a way”. I liked that. The staff at the resort have their name embroidered onto their uniforms, no badges no wrong name tags; it’s stitched on and I’m sucker for sewing. I thought that was such special touch. The hotel is very family orientated, with huge pools and to many activities to type out. My room was more of an apartment, sans the kitchen, the kind of place you move into for 3 weeks and really take time out. We dropped our bags and headed to lunch with Elvis, our wonderful host who had prepared a curry demonstration & little lecture on the palm heart. A delicacy found in the centre of an aged Palm tree, fennel/radish-like in texture, the palm heart dish is fondly called The Millionaires Salad. The food is cleaner in Mauritius, less salted and Creol infused, but perhaps this is just in our resort. We ventured to the spa for a much needed(exaggerating much) massage. I had the “30 mins energising treatment” in which I slept. I slept so much on this trip; hoping I would return more youthful! We made our way to the Secret Bar for an aperitif before dinner. I absolutely love the concept of the LUX* secret bar; it moves around the resort each evening and if you find it you are in for a treat. Instruction & ingredients to help you make your own cocktails before or after dinner, how fun? Dinner at Beach Rouge was fantastic, I enjoyed a Frutti di Mare pizza, bullied Amy into ordering something exciting and taught Talya all about the pros of Viber calling.

Nothing quite like a pom pom hunting hat, in the hope that winter would approach faster and I will actually NEED to keep my head warm. I have decided by wearing my winter attire the fashion gods may bestow us with a little of that JHB rain,a drizzle or a chilly breeze. Anything at this point that allows me to wear by 5th new winter jacket will suffice. Patience has never been a virtue of mine, especially when a pom pom hat & a polkadot knit are involved. Also I think Vespa(the seal) has been looking at her jersey basket with much hope, tartan is huge this season and she has been sporting it for 3 years. As Nike would say; her time is now.
