What’s hot for the month of May 2018!

Hues of coloured cotton

Couch cover, table cloth, throw, shawl, beach wrap, towel (obviously) – now that’s what we call a towel with endless options! Super cute and oh-so-pretty in warmer hues, these iconic Turkish Towels from The Cotton Company are the perfect accessories for your home, your body, your travels, or a great idea for a unique gift for someone special. Made from natural Aegean cotton and finished with hand knotted tassel fringes, they are light and dry superfast, making them practical and stylish to use as a swimming towel or ideal for adding a touch of luxury to your home if you prefer to go that route.  To add a cherry on top, they are fluff-free and eco-friendly. Priced from R365 to R390 from www.thecottoncompany.co.za

 

All good

Inglot has become a favourite thanks to its inspiring array of eye and lip colours. We honestly didn’t think we could love it any more than we already did, but lo, the brand brought out these fabulous new cruelty-free and reusable Flexi Eco Palettes! Made of natural bamboo, each ultralight palette is one-of-a-kind and handy for keeping your favourite Freedom System items in one functional space. Tiny magnets in the palette make stacking a breeze, leaving you to mix and match your own, custom-designed palette. Palettes are priced at around R229 and are available from selected Edgars stores nationally or online at www.inglotsouthafrica.com

 

Pop a cork with mum!

For the spirited mom who loves nothing more than to pop the cork of a brilliant bottle of bubbly, we’d like to share our excitement over this exquisitely showcased, exceptional Special Edition Cuvée – Bollinger Rosé 2006. An exclusive, once-off vintage rosé, it comprises 72% Pinot Noir and 28% Chardonnay produced from nine exceptional Grand and Premier crus. Aged for 10 years in Bollinger’s caves, this one-of-a-kind rosé is a mind-blowing expression of the highly-rated 2006 vintage. Majestically housed in a rose-gold latticework incorporating the Bollinger letters, the champagne itself is an enchanting salmon pink colour with a gracious mousse, delicately perfumed with enticing notes of rose petals, raspberries and quince. It gushes elegance, precision and harmony boasting a lively palate, a silky texture, delicious wild berry flavours and lingering notes of tangerine. Available at select wine specialist stores for approximately R1300.

Buon appetito!

With nothing but a suitcase full of dreams and her faithful friend ‘the cello’, Cecilia Di Cecco left Italy to work as a musician with the KZNPO in Durban. Here she learnt to cultivate her music and at the same time began a love affair with food that eventually led to the recent launch of her first cookbook, Cucina in South Africa.
