HOGSBACK HIDE-AWAY

A couple of weeks ago, the boy and I took a few days off for a mid-winter break. I decided to treat him to a weekend in the forested heights of Hogsback – a magical place where, as a child,  I spent many a weekend with my family. It’s about a three-hour drive from home, nestled on the slopes of the Amatole mountains in amongst beautiful big trees, and even a couple of waterfalls.

He had never been there before, and I was sincerely hoping we would be lucky enough to come across a snowflake or two (being the middle of winter and all). Well. No such luck…sigh. Instead we arrived to a sweltering 29º C, followed by two days of torrential downpour. But it was actually such a perfect weekend – plenty of exploring and sightseeing on the Friday, with the rest of our days spent eating, drinking, and keeping warm in our cosy little bungalow, in front of a roaring fire. Bliss.

These are just a few snaps of how we spent our time – before being rained out.
1: our accommodation at Bubuhle
2, 3, 4+5: the labyrinth ans some amazing views at The Edge
6+7: Ecology Shrine
8: St. Patrick-on-the-hill Church
9: we took a walk through the forest (in the rain, I might add) to see the Madonna-and-child waterfall…such beauty.

INDUSTRY OF ONE

Oh my gosh…don’t you just love Industry of One?! It’s such an awe-inspiring collection of some truly stand-out creatives.

“Industry of One is a periodical on the wears of work created by Adam Patrick Jones and Rachel Brown. Here and now again they will explore the style trappings of various industries + professions and document the relationship between one’s line of work + walk of life.”

I’ve just spent a good few minutes lusting after the life of Adrienne Antonson, a designer and sculptor currently based in New York. Have a look here for the full interview xx

12 AUGUST 2012

On Friday, I paid a visit to one of my favourite places – Gently Worn. I came home with a stack of unused postcards and old black-and-white photographs, to add to my collection. If you’re ever in the area, be sure to pop in…full of beautiful french vintage lovelies, it’s like a holiday for the soul.

DIANA-MINI-LOVE

Inspired by the post below, I decided to dig up my first 35mm film attempt, shot with my Diana Mini (mostly of my sister’s ‘kitchen tea’ and a day out thrifting). As much as I consider this batch to be a complete disaster, I can’t help but secretly love them just as much.

Sadly, I’ve been pretty lazy in the hobby department of late, so I have a few films lying around, just waiting to be revealed. Maybe this was just the inspiration I needed…to carry on playing, exploring and experimenting with film.

THE WEAVER HOUSE

Look at this amazing lookbook from The Weaver House. My oh my, be still my beating heart!!! Shot completely on polaroid and 35mm film, this was too good not to share. Apologies in advance for the massive amount of images, but I think you’ll agree with me, they were all so enchanting, it was way too difficult to choose. Enjoy xx
