dreamy autumn shoes

I’ve come across some pretty amazing shoes on Pinterest lately. Ankle boots are high up on my must-have list for winter, but so are loafers and trainers and beautiful leather flats…

hello superstars

Following on from last week’s post on white shoes, we can’t help but love adidas Originals new global campaign relaunching one of their most iconic sneakers – the Superstar. Can you believe it first launched in 1969? We weren’t even born yet. To kick off the new year, adidas have brought together some of the biggest stars of today and have flipped the idea of what we as a society believe to be ‘superstardom’ on its head.

Take a look at the short film featuring Rita Ora, David Beckham, Pharrell Williams and Damian Lillard where each star gets a little honest about the fact that being a superstar is not what you always think it is. This is just the beginning of an entire year of tributes to the iconic shoe. We can’t wait to see what’s next. And, to top it off, our absolute favourite blogger of the moment, Girl a la Mode, has given us some amazing inspiration on how to wear these sneakers come autumn.

inspiring spaces

Bringing ‘the outside in’ is a huge passion of mine. I am fascinated by how a plant can completely transform an otherwise uninspiring space. Especially when you are turning a house into a home on a tight budget.

This space, which I found on Hearth, masterfully utilises the light and energy of indoor plants. Softening edges and bringing depth. It’s a tiny space, but it doesn’t feel tiny. Granted it’s clearly a kid-free zone and could not be further from the space I currently live in, but I am still inspired!

Isn’t it lovely…

white shoes are tricky to pull off

Over the holidays I fell in love with a pair of white sandals from Woolworths. I bought them immediately, and got the same pair in black, too. Now, I am gravitating more and more towards wearing the black ones because every time I pull the white ones on I just feel like I look odd. I think it’s just something I need to get used to. White shoes are tricky. I found some inspiration online and think that a laid-back look definitely helps to offset the sharpness of the white. I’m going to keep trying different looks and I’m sure I’ll find a happy place soon…

what are you reading right now?

I used to be such a bookworm but since my littles came along, I seem to have lost the ability to get lost in a book. But now that Robert is almost 2 years old (stop growing, baby!), I feel like I’m finally, slowly getting things back in order, and one of those things is reading.

books

Here are a few books I am dying to add to my collection… They’re not all novels, some are all pictures :-)

1. Grace: A Memoir

2. We Are Water by Wally Lamb

3. Vivienne Westwood

4. Refinery 29 Style Stalking

5. Humans of New York, and of course Little Humans of New York

6. How to Be Parisian Wherever You Are

7. The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt

8. All The Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr

And I really, really want to get Much Ado About Stuffing, because it’s the funniest Twitter account in the world made into a book. Seriously.

I’d appreciate some brilliant fiction novel suggestions… and go!

ps) This is Emily (adding my 2 cents worth). I couldn’t let a book post go by without mentioning that I have recently completed my Kate Atkinson collection by purchasing her latest novel Life After Life. I can say that it is the most spellbinding novel I think I have ever read. I can’t begin to praise it enough…. Gillian Flynn, author of Gone Girl sums it up nicely:

“One of the best novels I’ve read this century. Kate Atkinson is a marvel. There aren’t enough breathless adjectives to describe LIFE AFTER LIFE: Dazzling, witty, moving, joyful, mournful, profound.”

inspirational space

I am always looking for ways to make our little home feel bigger. It’s impossible to think clearly and function properly when surrounded by clutter.

This Christmas my kiddos were wonderfully spoilt and while we’re thrilled with our new toys, we’re faced with the challenge of finding a place for everything.

Big clear out time. We donated some stuff and dropped off a few bags at the secondhand kids clothing/toys store where my sister works – Tantrum on Main Road Kenilworth. It’s a real treat if you are looking for an affordable way to clothe your children in cute, international brands while passing on your own children’s (good quality) old clothes. It’s been a real life saver for me over the last couple of years.

This family space, discovered on The Design Files has inspired me this week. Uncluttered, light, airy and still warm enough to be called a home.

Good to see how it’s possible to have kids but not a lounge knee-deep in toys and plastic furniture :)
