 A portrait of my babes once a week in 2014 (37 weeks)

This week marks 37 weeks in, 37 weeks out. It amazes me that you've been out in the world for as long as you were inside me. That in a mere 37 weeks you went from nothing to babies, and then from newborns to these beautiful, spirited, roly, squishy eight month old beings that you are now.  I've watched you changed so much; your wet seal-like hair become heads of fluff, your wrinkly hands full out into chubby fingers with dimples for knuckles that reach and touch and discover anything in your path, your faces transform from forest-like creatures to real babies with round cheeks and neck rolls and the softest skin that I run my lips over any chance I get, your legs grow long and your pinkness becomes a beautiful golden colour, toothy grins emerge along with cheeky senses of humour, tiny bodies burst into movement of kicks and rolls and now crawling and pulling yourself. Instinct is making way for consideration in your relationship with each other as you still fall asleep at night with legs entwined and toes touching but I hear constant negotiation, giggles and chatter between the two of you throughout the day. And I am catching glimpses of who you are becoming - Anna your earnestness, your giant heart, an understanding beyond your years and a wonderment of those you love; Florence your delight in your own world of dogs, brass door handles, giant pink balloons and rose petals. Delicateness and complete dependence gives away to strong wills, distinct preferences and deliberate movements - a palm that is laced on my arm, or an arm wrapped around my neck. How is it that I've only known you for 37 weeks? I wonder how I ever lived without you.

wedding greenery that makes my heart beat faster

I love a wedding. And I love greenery. So put them together and boom I am a happy happy girl. I think the use of greenery in this wedding is just magical - don't you?

happy weekend

Happy weekend lovely readers. What are your plans for the weekend? Here in Johannesburg it is well and truly autumn... I love it! The leaves are changing from bright green to glorious bronze and in the mornings there is a crispness to the air that brightens the eyes. In the evenings I love the smell of wood burning fires in my suburb, for me that scent is the definite sign that winter is on it's way. 

Some fun links from around the web:

Michelle Williams is back as the face of Louis Vuitton and I think she never looked better. 

Breakfast inspiration for tomorrow - how lucky is my husband? 

The most fantastic 'how to' lessons. Like 'how to be alone', 'how to ask for feedback' and 'how to remember names'. 

Another how to: How to be happier right now.

I bought this flamingo pic for our living room... cannot wait for it to arrive. #comeuppostoffice

I have a serious crush on Garance Dore, get her to design some stationery and I am basically sent off the edge.

Fall in love with the entire collection here

my beauty loves

Wednesday, April 9, 2014

It's been a whole year since I chatted about my favourite beauty products! Seriously, where did all the time go? Do you have some of those products that you don't know how you ever lived without? These are some of mine as we move from summer to winter...

1. Dermalogica's Skin Prep Scrub, for making my skin deliciously smooth.

2. Dior Addict gloss. I am all about easy lips at the moment. My fave colour is number 684 - a subtle pink that makes my lips look perfectly kissable, even if I say so myself.

3. Davines shampoo and conditioner. I love Davines sustainable philosophy.

4. Smashbox Photo Finish foundation primer. This does wonders underneath your foundation and I can feel the difference the whole day.

5. Clarins Delicious Self Tanning Cream. Do you use self tan? I am vowing to use it on my legs all winter long!

6. Essie nail polish in Ballet Slippers. I love the look of perfectly manicured nails but in a neautral, soft colour. Ballet Slippers is spot on!

7. Estee Laude's Pure Colour Blush in Brazen Bronze. I picked this compact up at a beauty sale and now I am obsessed. I love that the colour isn't too pink and perfectly defines my cheek bones.

8. Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream Lip Protectant Stick. I am a huge Eight Hour Cream (the original) and use it for everything but I am pretty sold on this lip stick too... it makes your lips super smooth.

9. Bobbi Brown eye shadows... so easy, so quick!
