Sandton’s Typo store is nothing short of incredible. I love going in there, and I seldom walk out empty handed. They’re reasonable, and their sales are completely worth it. Here are a few things I picked out from their site that are the craziest, coolest things. I omitted the prices as it was in dollars and not Rands, so if you see something you like, visit their store!
I came across this post whilst browsing, and realized that it can help so many people out there! How many times have you started off the day with perfect liner/kohl, then ended up looking like a panda an hour later? (half an hour for me!) I started using gel liner as it stays put, but sometimes by the end of the day it still would smudge. An easy way to save your liner? Simply press eye shadow in a shade lighter than your skin tone under your eye, then blend in! 10 seconds of effort for an entire day of fresh eyes!
How stunning is this? According to the instructions, all it is is faux flowers sprayed then glued into an acrylic box. I am definitely doing this!
Very cute idea! Salad in mason jars. The trick is to keep the salad dressing at the bottom and the lettuce/spinach/leaves at the top (to keep it from getting soggy). If you’re a small family, it’ll be great to prepare a few of these in advance for to grab for lunch, or it’s a great option for individual salads at braais!
This quote truly resonates with me right now. I have been focusing on just making the most of life, and making every minute count. When you feel positive, you attract positivity!
“You know I love you so”. This was the most adorable thing! Taped onto a mailbox, I snapped it up whilst friends and I were exploring the city
All I have been blogging about is how I am looking forward to winter fashion. I cannot wait to wear felt hats and chunky knits!
Let’s all vow to do everything in our life, as of today with meraki
What inspired you this week?
Denim Jackets have always been a staple, but over the last couple of years it somewhat died down. It’s back with a bang, and easier to style than ever!
This is part one of the How To: Jacket Edition series, to help prep you for the colder months ahead! It is a basic guideline on different ways to wear a jacket, so pick one (or five!) that fits your style!
I have always known the importance of photography packaging. It goes far beyond what’s on the disc or flash- it speaks of professionalism, creativity, and a simple “Dear Client, you matter to me”.
For an engagement shoot I did a few weeks ago, I decided to convert my packaging altogether. I wanted something different, personal, and something that clients can enjoy. Basically something that shows that I’m willing to go the extra mile, and set myself apart from other photographers.
Here is the result
I give most clients USB flashes, as I find it much more convenient for both me and the client in terms of picture sharing. Also included in the box is a thank you note and Cappuccino sachets, so clients can enjoy reliving their memories over a cuppa
Any improvements you think I could make? Share it in the comments!
It has been a while since I have blogged. Sometimes life takes over in unexpected ways, but I have been sure to make blogging a priority again.
Since the last time I blogged, temperatures have certainly dropped! Complaints for the end of Summer can be heard all around, but I cannot help but look forward to Winter- if not only for the beautiful fashion!
Here are some out-of-the-box apparel that you can include in your Winter wardrobe this year
A twist on the leather jacket, leather sleeves add a tough chic look whilst still remaining pretty

Love it Chic is a proudly South African online accessory store. I am obsessed with their ranges-EVERYTHING is fashion forward, bang on trend and best of all, affordable!

I haven’t had time to blog all week, but I woke up exceptionally early today because I simply didn’t want to miss doing this post!
I’m definitely a home remedy girl- the idea of chemicals from products seeping into my skin kind of gives me chills. I have tried the cellulite one, the egg white one and the hair one- all work!
This week my mom was faced with the challenge of trying to re-ravel all my ribbon. I tend to keep my supplies in a box (okay, many many very untidy boxes) and that often means taking everything out to find what’s at the bottom. I love this organization idea, using a pants hanger for ribbon and a jewellery/bag organizer for “bits”
An oldie but goodie- you can never go wrong with a decadent chocolate mousse!
This is definitely my favourite quote of all time, let alone the week. With the prevalence of social media, competition is at its all time high. Take a step back, and try to better yourself rather than one-up a pseudo opponent
I snapped this up on my recent trip to India. I love that it gets in a bit of everything: the festivity of the charriot, the glamour of the Taj hotel, the culture of India Gate, and of course the commonness of the Tuk Tuk
I am looking forward to winter! The fashion is phenomenal. I am dying to replicate this entire look, but finding this not-s0-red riding hood cape is going to be a task
Pronounced as “lay spree de less cal e a”. Happens too often.
Seven of the week is a brand new addition to the SnS page. Every Friday, I will do a round up of the seven things that have inspired me in various categories. Enjoy!
I came across this post on face mapping, and I found it so useful! It always helps to know why you’re breaking out. Who knew the area on your face was a tell-tale of what’s going on in your body?
I spotted this DIY Mason Jar idea on Pinterest, and absolutely fell in love! It doesn’t have a tutorial, but it looks easy- combine modge podge and glitter, paint the inside of the jar (you can also use an old mayo jar!) and ribbon it up!
It isn’t exactly food, but this is such a simple way to add a touch of gorgeousness to an otherwise simple drink! Edible flowers are available in most Woolies and Pick n Pay
I snapped up this picture at the Porsche Twin bag launch I attended last week. Aside for the absolutely phenomenal bag, I was floored by those (extra) long stemmed red roses! Gorgeous beyond words
The fashion world is abuzz with monotones being in again (did it ever leave?). Add some gold and you’re good to go!
And last but not least, my word of the week! With petrol prices gone up, I think we’re ALL feeling like Nillionaires!
Wearing a jacket as a cape isn’t a trend, or something new. But it isn’t something very common either. Most of us have just been throwing our coats over when it gets chilly, but with the weather being temperamental recently, wearing a jacket as a cape is perfect.
