Madiba quote cards {Lieflingkind Design}
For us, everything seems to move slower in winter – we sleep a little later in the morning, get to bed a little earlier & seem to do a lot of cuddling, eating & trying to stay warm. We’re hibernating, really.     It struck me the other day that, instead of taking it slow, this is the perfect time to get ahead of the game (especially in business).

Farmyard Birthday Party
A Farmyard Birthday party based at an animal farm is pretty easy to decorate because the farm is the perfect backdrop and the animals are the perfect props.

There were red and white gingham table cloths and hessian bunting as well as buckets of animal feed and animal balloons.     The party took place at the Flag Animal Farm in Salt Rock, Durban. The party took around two months to plan, allowing... Read More

Main bedroom revamp
For those who have not yet entered our lovilee giveaway with Prominent Paints + Evolve, I hope that the post below would get you inspired to do so immediately.

I opted for a black chalkboard accent... Read More
