Filippa K

I first discovered Filippa K years ago at a boutique called Manon Cie in Armadale, which has since closed down. I purchased a white basic round neck T-shirt, which I still have and wear when walking the dog. For years, I have searched high and low for another one, since it is so comfy and has lasted some time now and still looks good. 

After years of searching, I finally found my white Filippa K T-shirt at one of my favourite boutiques in the city, called Swensk.

Swensk is a boutique which is committed to slow fashion. Their approach is simple. "Swensk have two approaches to Slow Fashion: 1) Provide designs that last longer then the trends. 2) Quality fabrics and manufacturing."1

I enjoy wearing garments which are made from the best quality fabrics. They look chic, are comfy and stand the test of time. Cheaper fabrics just don't last, so you have to repurchase more frequently. I think buying quality garments helps to be more sustainable and that's a positive approach t…

Love Affair

I'm not much of a fan of cold Winters, but what makes it bearable for me is something I discovered about eight years ago.

I admit I have had an ongoing love-affair with cashmere for years. This soft, luxurious wool is the ultimate in keeping warm. It's actually ten times warmer than wool and not itchy at all! 

My cashmere collection just keeps on growing, and my latest addition is this gorgeous sweater dress. In my opinion, black always looks chic and the slouchy over-sized shape of this sweater dress makes it the perfect outfit for casual days. It also features a round neckline, drop fitted sleeves and ribbing. I love wearing it with my black leather high-heeled boots. 







Well, I can't believe another week has begun already. I have been walking with an extra spring in my step as the weather here is on the improve. The scent of flowers, such as jasmine and freesias, fills the air and I know that Spring is almost upon us. I look forward to days filled with sunshine and happiness…

Sisley, my saving grace

Well, it's been a while since my last blog post. Life has been so crazy busy for me with teaching full days, then coming home absolutely exhausted. I wonder whether or not it is this long, cold, drab Winter that's making me feel like this. I usually feel like I have so much more energy in the warmer months. Please tell me that I'm not the only one going through the Winter blues?

When I found out Sisley Cosmetics Paris do a hydrating mask, I just had to try it. I have leaned more towards skincare over the past couple of months as my skin has not been handling the harsh climate too well.



If your skin feels dehydrated and needs a pick-me-up, check out Sisley's Express Flower Gel Mask. Sisley's products are made from pure botanicals and essential oils. The beauty of this mask (no pun intended), is that you can leave it on without rinsing it off and even wear it during the day under your makeup. No kidding, it makes your skin really hydrated and fabulous for the entire du…
