Milnerton Market Treasure Hunt

Do you like vintage stuff at affordable prices? Then you will like Milnerton Market.  Some people won't even waste their time going there, as they think - who would want other peoples trash.  I DO!  I love old things, it give me a nostalgic feeling and I imagine what the background and history would be of every piece. I went there a while ago and look at the treasures I found:

I paid R5 for this copper deer ornament that you can hang on the wall.  I was imagining hanging it outside on my balcony with other ornaments and succulent plants.  I haven't done it yet!

Propagate your Lucky Bamboo

I love lucky bamboos. I received my three lucky bamboos from my sister for my birthday about three years ago. They have grown so much since. I wanted to cut them shorter, but knew that there must be a certain way to do this. So I went to my old faithful and reliable friend, Mr. Google. I discovered this video on how to propagate bamboo. It was so easy and I couldn't wait for the shoots to grow out again.

Interior Decorating Project - Buitenkant Street {Look and feel proposal}

I was totally blown away when my friend asked me to give her apartment in Cape Town CBD a bit of a face lift.  I said: "HELL YEAH!" She wants to rent her apartment out through Airbnb and wants to make it nice.  I thought I would share my creative journey with you and perhaps inspire you along the way.

I studied Interior Decorating, but never pursued the career as I got caught up in my Marketing career.  The only interior decorating jobs that i have done, has been my own home and giving advice to friends.

Firstly I sent her a look and feel proposal, to see if I am on the same page as her and she responded that she is.  So the next step is to do the schedule with the breakdown of what I propose I purchase with the costing.  Then my favourite part: shopping!!  Watch this space for the development of my project.

Best easy breakkie - Greek yogurt, banana, almonds, honey and cinnamon

I'm not one of those people who can have the same thing for breakfast everyday day in and day out.  So I try and mix it up as much as I can.  I will share one of my breakfast options with you now.  I also try my best to follow #banting and #lchf eating plan.  This breakfast is really easy to make and it taste bloody delicious.

Decorate those walls of yours too - my photo frame collage

I was very excited to have a blank wall above my amazing couch that I could decorate with a frame collage. 

I got my inspiration from Melissa from her blog, Miss Molly Fashions and started looking for photo frames to start my collage. 

 I started with any odd frames that I had floating around in my house and drew up the layout of the frames with the prints on InDesign.  I looked at the colours, placement and design and what looked right next to each other.

It was our six month anniversary on the 25th of June and my boyfriend spoilt me! I was out at my Social Club and he sneaked into my flat (he's got a set of keys) and left roses everywhere in my flat! He left sushi and guava juice in my fridge, which was just the right medicine that I would need after a Social Club night, as a couple of glasses of wine usually gets consumed.
