We are mad about these August buys
LOCAL IS LEKKER
We‘re all about healthy living and can’t pass the Waterkloof Corner Centre without stopping at The Village Pantry. It’s known as Pretoria’s first organic food store and boasts the most delicious food, organic Peruvian Coffee, luxurious cosmetics and even sells Hollywood star Jessica Alba’s HONEST products. The store strives to source as local as possible, supporting small scale farmers and even limit packaging in store – instead clients to are asked to bring their own jars and bottles for refilling. So neat!
Busy mums are always looking for a way to make their lives just that little bit easier. We recently stumbled upon the niftiest design ever – the Airtushi. It’s a high chair that fits into your handbag. Airtushi is an inflatable, portable highchair that easily attaches to any chair, airplane seat or even camping chair – turning them into a high chair for your little one.

SLEEP ON IT
Looking your best has never been this easy. And the best part? You don’t have to do a thing. Juliette Armand’s Vitality cream mask is a “sleep on” mask that revitalises, tones and moisturises tired skin and boosts firming all while you get some shut-eye. The mask is jam-packed with amino acids and essential fatty acids to maintain moisture and rejuvenate your skin. Simply apply, relax and go to bed. The mask will effortlessly absorb into your skin and you will wake up refreshed and looking great. Details: R510 for 50ml, www.poisebrands.co.za.
Afternoon tea has never looked this good. We’re obsessed with this statement cast iron teapot from Woolworths. Boasting a removable infuser for loose leaf tea, this pot is sure to turn your friends green with envy. Details: R525.
After a long day at the office we can’t resist a bite of chocolate. Woolworths just released their brand new, no sugar added, Belgian chocolate range and we are utterly in love. Take your pick between the Belgian dark chocolate with berries, Belgian milk chocolate or the Belgian dark chocolate with cocoa nibs. Pure delight! Details: R44.99.
It’s all in the details and we’re speechless. Charm in elegance is the name of the game in this vintage-inspired wrap dress, designed and crafted by well-known South African designer Rich Mnisi. Cut to flatter, this beautiful design features a soft collared neckline and discreet popper closures, while its pleated wrap skirt ties elegantly at the waist and shoulder to complete the charming silhouette. Details: R1 399, Woolworths.
KICK IT UP
No wardrobe is complete without a beautiful pair of boots – ankle boots to be precise. And we just love these gorgeous black Blair Chelsea ankle boots from Forever New. Wear them with your favourite pair of jeans or ankle grazers or pair them with your favourite black dress.
ICE COLD DELIGHT
We bet you never thought beer could be made in the Kalahari. The Kalahari Desert, situated in Botswana, Namibia and regions of South Africa, is synonymous with words like “hot” and ”dry”, but now also is kind to the taste buds. The Kalahari Craft Beer portfolio includes two fine beers, each paying tribute to animals within the area: Gemsbok Lager and Puff Adder Weiss. The puff adder thrives in the extremely hot climate whilst the gemsbok, the animal that has stood the test of time, adapts to the harsh climate with its extraordinary cooling system.
