Q+A with Liezel from Bezoo Projects
I recently bought myself a Narnia cupboard from a small business called Bezoo Projects. I stumbled across them on Facebook and immediately fell in love with their work. I am a HUGE re-vamp, re-purpose advocate and wanted to introduce you lovilees to Bezoo. Would love to hear what you think!  How did Bezoo Projects come about? Kyle started this business in 2006. It has taken many forms since then, but have always been a creative enterprise. In 2012 I joined the business and we officially started revamping furniture. Kyle and I met... Read More

We add a product called xanthan gum into the mix, which ensures that the batters are combined together and assist in the “stretching” of flours during the baking process.   Therefore, these batters do react also differently when mixed together. The “teacher” within me just... Read More

Truth Coffee Cult {Cape Town}
Images + Text by Debbie Lourens Photography   Every Morning at 7am I wait for the doors of Truth Coffee Cult to open. The familiar airoma of Truth’s own brewed coffee filling my nostrils and bringing me a sense of calm. It isn’t long before the freshly baked croissants, muffins and glutin free chocolate delights start arriving to entice my tastebuds.   This is my routine, coffee in the morning or most cases in the afternoon after work.
