Hello lovelies, apologies for the slight break in transmission – i’m taking things slowly in Stanford and loving it! We’ve had guests galore and its been so good to catch up with friends – especially since its been such a topsy turvy year and socialising hasn’t been on the cards very much! I have officially finished my Christmas shopping – no more treks to the shops for me except for the elusive packet of rocket from Woolies! I know The Captain hasn’t started his yet – let’s see if he reads my blog – if he did, all he would have to do is take a look below for some of the things i want, want, want from Constantia Village Courtyard.
By now you’ve picked up that i think a Yoga Spirit membership is a brilliant present, and really i’ve been recommending it for everyone because i would love one! I absoutely love the Anvil & I jewellery range which Jin Jin carries – and i would really love an initial pendant this Christmas; the scarves at Classic Blu are SO fabulous! Melissa’s Olive Oil is excellent plus i love the packaging!
Present Time has so many lovely buys – like these floral canisters; The Captain wouldn’t have to look far in Madison to find things i love – like this beaded belt; every Christmas and birthday i ask for Sorbet vouchers, they are so useful and never ever go to waste – besides i am in such desperate need of a pedi, it’s not funny! Have you seen the Rimmel makeup at Clicks? I could really do with some new lipsticks.
I spotted this multipurpose Garnier Cleansing Water at Clicks the other day and i would love it in my Christmas stocking; you now how much i love rugs – Cape Persian Carpet House has so many gorgeous options; the Tala range of revived vintage baking essentials is so lovely – i spotted this pink measuring cone at Present Time; sigh, i would kill for a pair of Paul Smith frames from Mullers Optometrists – and since The Captain is a Discovery member, he’d get a 20% discount.
Have you seen the Karien Belle scarves, throws and accessories at Madison? oh my word, they are seriously lustworthy – i really want a scarf! Rooibos cappucinos are a firm favourite of mine – you can buy the pre ground mix at Italian Lifestyle; i use Melissa’s cook’s salt with garden herbs whenever i cook – it’s a constant staple and a must for my Christmas stocking! For leisure wear that’s all about comfort and cotton – from linen dresses to the softest scarves, head to Mediterraneo, they’ve got lovely buys.
NOW…HOW ABOUT A CHRISTMAS WIN from JIN JIN JEWELLERY?!!
Would you like win an Anvil & I name necklace worth R620?
