How To Wrap Up A Day

If you were just thinking, "Hey, I wish I had something nice to do to round off my day," (I know, I was too) then I have just the thing for you.
It's a Chrome Experiment that lets you add on to animations, with no technical know how, to create an exquisite 'forest'.
Lost? It's ok... let the team explain it for you. They do it so well.

I found it here

This is a nice thought.


I don’t know where it’s from though, sorry.

I have fingers?

My hands were so cold this weekend I couldn't tell.

Lucky, I was lured to Vovo Telo for breakfast. Warm, tasty breakfast. Delicious coffee. Beautiful decor. Yup, warmed me up from the inside out.

I went to the one in Bedfordview, but there are branches in Sandton, 44 Stanley, Cresta, lonehill, Parkhurst- to name a few. Have you been to any of them? What did you think?

Have a look at their website here:
It's very cute.

New Morning Ritual

Since I started my new job, and the later hours that go with it, I have been promising myself that gym would be a big part of my morning ritual.
That hasn’t happened.
Instead, I get up, shower, make breakfast and tea and get back into bed.
I then check on Kendi to see what she’s wearing (thanks for sharing with me, Cakes), rack my brain for ways to come up with similar outfits, get depressed because of my lack of key pieces and put on some jeans.
Who’s Kendi?
Weeell, she is a girl, just like me.
In her own words (on her FB page)

“People think that when you get married and move to a small town you should get pregnant. I started a blog. (It's a girl).”

Since then (2009) she has moved to Dallas and opened a clothing store called Bloom. And yes, you guessed it. I want everything.

I know, I know, I sound materialistic, but let’s be honest here, I am only female after all.

What I like about Kendi is that she has a few key pieces that she wears… beautifully. She isn’t rocking a different Lanvin sweater everyday, nor is she punting the big brands or putting up outfits without saying where things are from. And even though 99% of the stores are not in SA, seeing H&M look so good is reassuring.

But, that’s just my opinion, and what do I know about fashion?

Give Me

Found this beautiful illustration on Inspiration Feed today.

The post showed off some of Jessica Hische’s work. This one is my favourite:

Don’t you love spammy emails?

We’re not sure what happened but suddenly all of our work emails are being flooded by strange emails.


Although, maybe they are genuine mails that we just don’t understand – like the emails we get from IT sometimes.

This one, in particular, looks quite genuine to me:


someone told me I was drunk. I can tell you right now that I can still drive home because I'm drunk, not with alcohol, but with love for you. I have given you an eCard to let you realize how I feel. read your letter Here <>


What do you think? (Please don’t  click on the link).

It doesn’t matter how many times I look at this post on Inspiration Feed, I just can’t get enough.


These images are part of a project started by Ji Lee nearly 20 years ago:

“This project started nearly twenty years ago as an assignment in my typography class at art school. Students were encouraged to see letters beyond their dull, practical functionality. We played with their unique shapes and tinkered with their infinite possibilities. The challenge was hard, so the reward of “cracking” a word felt great. This became a lifelong project for me.” - Ji Lee

Where There's Tea

House and Leisure facebook fans would already have seen this, and maybe you have too, but it resonated with me (surprise surprise!) so I thought I would share.

It's originally from here
