70’s fever at Handmade By Me

I was so taken with this 70’s inspired shoot of some of Handmade By Me‘s latest products, styled and shot by Kristy Snell of Delisous.

Prawn cocktail and flamingos, grapefruit and proteas, peas and prickly pears, and green jelly and alphabet soup, with a quirky combination of 70’s style dining – I’ve always loved the retro look and feel and I couldn’t be more into these pics! Plus, the locally-made products are fabulous too.

right now we’re loving…

Bright and early mornings, balmy days and warm evenings… we love summertime. Here are a few things making these delicious days even better for us right now.

L’Occitane‘s new fragrance collection is sublime. Created by Olivier Baussan (L’Occitane founder) and Pierre Hermé (an extraordinary pastry chef with a memory for flavours and scents) it has two offerings – Jasmin Immortelle Neroli and Pamplemousse Rhubarbe – each as fresh as the first light of day. Our favourite has to be Jasmin with its Immortelle essential oil from Corsica, head notes of pink pepper and lemon, heart notes of jasmine, immortelle, neroli and orange blossom and base notes of amber, white wood and musk. So fresh!

Pichulik’s S/S 16 Lena collection is perfectly described by the designer Katherine-Mary Pichulik herself. She states: “This collection is for the woman who has a sense of humour and a lust for travel. She collects a trousseau of objects to mark her travels and memories, and prizes experiences over appearances. The pieces are therefore effortless, unapologetic and designed to follow the wearer’s movements. They balance bold and soft to make a statement without being loud.”

You can see the rest of the collection here. It’s amazing.

A bright, bold lip makes everything better. The Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm in Striking Spectaculaire is our current fave. It glides on smoothly, has a subtle mint flavour and stays on for ages.

And how sweet is this video that Revlon just launched with their Love Study campaign, proving that a beauty ritual can improve a women’s love life?

Lastly, who is heading to Kamers at Webersburg this weekend? We’re hoping to get there and can’t wait to see all the exciting stalls. One we’re definitely making a stop at is Handmade by Me. Designer, Sera Holland, has a range of new printed fabrics (see here for a sneak peek, we love the prickly pears!) that she will be unveiling with a host of products like tea towels and cushions. One of the products we can’t wait to see are the ‘Big 5’ reusable placemats for kids that can be turned into face masks when you’re done with them. So cool!
