Wishlist for March

Here’s our list of must-haves for the month.

Scatter it with hemp

Bring a little piece of Africa’s majestic natural surroundings into your living space with a stylish Veldt Cushion Cover made using an eco-friendly hemp and organic cotton fabric blend. That means they’re as sustainable as they are stylish! What we love even more is that these scatters are also printed by hand using non-toxic inks, so you and your family can make safe and Earth-friendly choices for your home. Details: Priced from R299 to R340 from


Hassle free herb garden

Whether you live in a small urban or suburban space, you can still have fun growing herbs or flowers on your balcony, patio or even indoors in the kitchen. You can imagine then, why we are so obsessed with this gorgeous little Hydroponic Herb Garden system that takes up minimal space and looks good too. Each unit comes complete with a built in LED grow light with timer, a basin body with two planting pots, two planting covers, an add water indicator, a power indicator, a plant growing medium, and fertiliser. It is hassle free, allows growth all year round, and is great for anybody who enjoys healthy cooking and fresh produce, just like us! It plays nicely with any Grow-your-own products conducive to indoor growing, so get started and grow your own mini garden! Details: R1199 from



Everyday core bottle

The perfect balance of health, style, and durability these double-wall, suspended glass core bottles by Zoku are great for carrying around during your busy day. You can fill them with your favourite hot or cold beverage and enjoy the flavours in their crispest form – fresh from this pure borosilicate glass bottle. And thanks to a thread-free mouthpiece, it will not hold flavours, which means you are free to switch between beverages any time you choose to. The strong, triangular tessellation found on the silicone pads also protect the bottle from bumps and drops and there is no worry of spilling because the bottle’s 1/4-turn locking cap system is leak-proof. Yes please! Details: R359 for a 475ml bottle from


A merge of nature and technology

Spice up your home (or maybe bedroom) with a Lucky Love Pendant from Willowlamp, an award-winning brand whose cutting-edge designs bring life and light to large and small spaces all over the world. We are just fascinated by this roseate lamp that takes its shape from the rare, yet familiar, four-leaf clover. They are priced from R8 280 (metallic) to R11 120 (colour) and while it might take winning the Lotto for us to buy one of these incredible pieces, they are without a doubt, worthy investments to have.

Succulent treasures

Always live in the world of possibility, plants, and creativity! With this in mind, we can all do with some serious cacti love, whether it’s at the office or in the comfort of your own home. Proper care for these small indoor plants allows them to absorb water, grow healthy, look beautiful, and bloom, gradually shifting the energy direction which brings positive changes and wealth into your life. If you are looking for something suitably small, Woolworths has these Succulent Treasures for R209.99.

Inspirational art

We are huge fans of Rialheim’s 2017/2018 Brave Collection of ceramics crafted from African clay. The collection is a testament to this very scary emotional action required from our species, not only for survival, but for an evolution we can influence, and it is with this creative spirit that Rialheim has shaped the Brave collection featuring aspects of African farm life, from decorative pigs to Nguni cattle motifs, while My Africa highlights geometric-inspired tableware in blues, pastel pinks and textured neutrals, as well as life-like ceramic renditions of animals found on the continent. The Cape Agulhas range is the southernmost tip of Africa rendered in ceramic form, featuring carefully created ceramic fish, whale and sea-life pieces in calming hues of blue and white.

Massage yourself

We can barely go a week without declaring our love for a nourishing body massage, but it all adds up in the end of the day, week, month – Rand-wise we mean, so we decided it was time to try the benefits of Abhyanga – a form of Ayurvedic self-massage that involves large amounts of warm herb-infused oil. Benefits include increasing circulation, movement of stagnant lymph, softer skin, soothing the nervous system, balancing the digestive system and the promotion of a healthier immune system. So, which oil should you use? In cool weather, use sesame oil, almond oil or an herb-infused oil. In hot weather, use cooling coconut oil. Keep your oil in a bottle or jar in your bathroom. You can apply it at room temperature or warm it by soaking the bottle in warm water in the sink. Practice abhyanga in the morning or the evening (preferably on an empty stomach) for as few as five minutes or as long as an hour. We’ve done it, and we’ve got a DIY Massage Coconut Massage Oil recipe to share with you. You’ll need: a glass jar of unrefined, organic virgin coconut oil; essential oil(s) of your choice; a clean glass jar to transfer your blended oils into and a wooden spoon. Directions: Warm a pot of water on the stove. Place coconut oil in the warm water until it melts. Add essentials oils and stir with a wooden spoon. How much essential oil you add is up to you. Start with a teaspoon, which makes for a strong but not over-powering fragrance. Once you’ve mixed your oils, pour into glass jar (s) and seal. Happy self-massaging!

Chocolate for grownups

Chocolate. Yes please. Whiskey Mash. Of course. Chocolate Moonshine. Oh swoon! This month we’re loving the all-new, all American-style Southern Moonshine – a range that’s handmade in small batches in South Africa, with each bottle numbered and signed off by the Master Distiller.  Flavoured whiskey is fast becoming the new big thing (move over craft gins), and no wonder. This Southern Moonshine range is smooth and delicious… the Chocolate Moonshine spirit aperitif is a combination of dark chocolate and black coffee. Enjoy it straight up as a shooter, over crushed ice, or with your favourite mixer. It comes in a bespoke moonshine jug with a nifty finger hole that emulates the easy-going spirit of the American South. You’ll find it a good bottle stores for around R260. #GetYourShineOn

Bespoke baby gear, designed with the supermom in mind!

When it comes to baby brands, there are so many great companies out there producing some incredible stuff. On an international level, we are of course envious of some of the adventurous, fun and fabulous products on the market (not all of which we can always get our hands on), so we simply cannot contain ourselves when every now and again we stumble across some equally great brands produced on our very own doorstep…


50 Shades of Pink

When it comes to wine, especially rosé, there are loads of guys who won’t touch it. Maybe it’s because they prefer a beer or a more refined spirit; maybe it’s because it comes in a stemmed glass, who knows?. What we can say though, based on the confessions of our local wine fundi, Jan-Nico Coetzee, is that even the tough guys have a palate for rose, and thanks to the bottled beauties listed below, we now know just why.
