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). There’s a popular quote by Jerry Rice that says “I will do today what others won’t, so tomorrow I can accomplish what others can’t.” And so, to commemorate an... Read More

Cars birthday party {Carike Ridout}
Little manny turned two a little while ago and there was no doubting the theme… I am sure that we will have to go with the Cars birthday party theme for the next 8 years! Manny LOVED his special day and especially the red car cake topper that his daddy made for him.     I started off my planning with a Pinterest board. When I discussed my theme with friendy Liezel from Match Set Love she started creating and inspiring me with so many more ideas! We decided to go with the black and white square theme, incorporating it into the... Read More

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. Caley, from the Ellie Love Blog, submitted her little Sophie’s 2nd Birthday party to us for feature and we just loved the details. 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

Pear Tarte Tatin Recipe
by Nicolette van Niekerk from La Petite Patisserie     This delicious and beautiful French dessert stays a favourite of mine. Not only do I love fruit, but by combining it with a sweet syrup and pastry, then turning it upside down to make it interesting, grabs my attention… Being a typical autumn or winter tart, I added some spices to the syrup for some richness and flavour to the dessert.     Pear Tarte Tatin Recipe Preparation time: 30 minutes | Fridge resting time: 15 minutes | Baking time: 20 -25...

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 recently decided that it was time for a bedroom revamp and what better way than to make use of some paint! I feel that paint is the one of the cheapest and easiest ways to get a room to look totally different.     If you’ve followed lovilee for a while you might have remembered my previous bedroom revamp just over two years ago. I opted for a black chalkboard accent... Read More

Q+A with Melissa from Zana Products
I saw Zana Products at the recent Kamersvol Geskenke event in Cape Town and was blown away by their fresh designs. They also have a great blog to follow with plenty DIY ideas, recipes and downloadables. I just love the Fun, bold patterns and the colours that they make use of and contacted them to share more with us.     Q: Tell us more about the brand? The name “Zana” comes from an old family nickname that just seems to have stuck. Our business was born out of a love for creating. After a few months of midnight sewing we... Read More
