missibaba’s new backpacks are just so rad

As a mama, it’s sometimes not practical to lug a big handbag around, especially when travelling with your littles or when you’re out for the day and need to pack a million supplies. It’s also not practical to use an ugly bag, because well, just because you’re a mama doesn’t mean you need to sacrifice on style.

That’s why we like the idea of Missibaba’s new Palermo Backseat Bitch Backpack collection. Not only are they practical but they’re good looking too. The backpacks feature five sets of magnets, making it easy to whip them open and closed in an instant. And they’re locally made – each bag requires six people’s crafty hands to create the final beautiful product.

We love this new collection! Buy them in the Missibaba store today 🙂

beautiful pet gear

I’m not quite sure why I haven’t come across Benji + Moon before, but I’m just in love with all their products. Although a tad pricey for our current budget, I’m sure our bulldogs would settle rather nicely into a merino wool bed. It’s certainly a whole lot prettier than their current bed!

Each piece that Benji + Moon sell is made by hand by selected artisans – weavers, leatherworkers, potters, crocheters and needleworkers.

The hand-felted dog bed is made from 100% Merino wool – the felt making process is an ancient craft where threads of wool are rubbed and moulded into shapes. South African artist Ronel Jordaan collaborated with Benji + Moon to create this masterpiece.

The woven cat pod is made from sisal by Swazi weaver Khosi Gadlela who uses traditional weaving techniques. Hours of labour and love go into each basket.

The beautiful ceramic food and water bowls are made by ceramicist Edson Mahlangu.

The natural leather hand cut belt bag is where you can keep dog treats, poo bags and your phone when you’re out for a walk with the pooches. So cute!

You can take a look at all that Benji + Moon has to offer, and shop online, here.

a new discovery

There is a gorgeous new cafe just up the road from where we live. We like to go there and drink good coffee (Bean There), eat breakfast and do some work (free WiFi). Four & Twenty is run by two young chefs, and friends, who while on a gastronomic tour through France, had a dream of running their own place. Which they now do really well. Besides the awesome breakfasts, there’s an ever-changing lunch menu too and a fresh produce deli section. We recommend you pay Four & Twenty a visit soon. It’s worth it.

We also got quite a few compliments on our new Cinnamon shoes. Beautiful, genuine leather and locally handmade. They’re divine!
