autumn picks

‘Tis the season for curling up, keeping warm and of course, updating the wardrobe. Here are some of our top picks for autumn.

1/ Kirsten Goss Ombre Diamond collection – for the April children, and the rest of us too, KG’s new collection is quirky and playful with white, cognac and black diamonds.

2/ Billabong’s Midnight Marrakesh collection will be in stores from May, and it features exactly what you’d imagine from its name – long dresses, wide pants, boho layers, chunky knits and a touch of military. Also check out Swindle to purchase Billabong and other labels such as Element and Kustom, along with surf, skate and mountain biking accessories.

3 & 4/ Forever New – currently in all stores (and select Edgars stores) is the Dream Catcher collection. Think floral maxi dresses, suede mini skirts, camel coats, 70s-inspired jewellery and ankle boots.

5/ Revlon – we are enjoying trying out the five new mascara and brush combinations that Revlon released earlier this year. The Dramatic Definition mascara is a goodie, and this Photoready Foundation Powder works like a charm too! Buy online at Red Square.

6/ Simply Aloe – the Aloe & Honey face mask is perfect for this time of year as the cooler weather can cause dryness. Proudly South African, we love the fact that this all-natural mask soothes, repairs and gives skin a good detox. You’ll find it at leading pharmacies and health shops.

7/ Converse – three cheers for the new All Star II Neon range available in teal, green gecko, volt green and red. In stores now!

8/ Jane Sews – locally made, beautifully designed, simply perfect… we love everything Jane Sews. These boots are high up on the autumn wish list.

9/ Hertex – their luxe home collection features the softest, most beautiful throws and blankets.

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!
