In a flat week I’ve changed my mind about Birkenstocks. I wasn’t convinced initially, then I was curious. Now I’m downright in love. Check out these inspiring looks and get ready to spend summer in these super sensible shoes….

furniture for little people

We’re at the stage at home where we need to start adapting things to suit the needs of our kids as they grow up. We don’t want their stuff to take over the house and we definitely don’t want it to look tasteless. Two of the most important things on the agenda are finding a beautiful storage unit for the play area and deciding on a big boy bed for Robbie – we’re thinking bunks!

I found some inspiration over at Petit & Small and Kids Room Blog. Now if only I had more money…

I love black and white for a kids room

This year’s ELLE Rising Star finalists

The ELLE Rising Star Design Award in association with MrP is presented by African Fashion International (AFI) and the finalists will show their designs at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Africa 2014 where the winner will be announced.

As in previous years, the panel of judges had a difficult task when it came to selecting the seven finalists, however in the end it came down to this… Style curator and fashion consultant, Jackie Burger says: ‘The 2014 finalists represent the new generation of designers with a unified modernist vision, a focused confidence and definitive design signature.’

So here they are, in no particular order….

black and white is always right

Emily and I were shopping the other day when we realised that after 24 years of friendship and shopping together, we’ve finally grown up. No longer do we rush to the rails hanging with the season’s latest trends and buy the exact same items regardless of whether they suit us or not. Instead, we headed in different directions and straight to the grown-up basics – the pieces that we know look good, that we’re going to wear for a few seasons, that will last.

We also noticed there wasn’t much colour going on. We’re stripping things away and investing in classic blacks, whites, creams and greys. Okay, whites and creams aren’t very kid friendly but we’re going to make an attempt of it. We’re sticking by our new mantra: you can never go wrong in black and white. It’s timeless.
