We are mad about these October buys
The days are so hot we can’t even remember what winter felt like. And with more and more flower prints making their way to the runways, we can’t wait to get our hands on this gorgeous Elka lace spliced maxi dress from Forever New. Pair it with flats for lunch with the girls or heels for a night out, R1 299.
There are many reasons to pop open a bottle of bubbles … not that you need one. Our latest favourite is Plaisir de Merle’s Grand Brut … A brilliant elegant and distinctive Méthode Cap Classique. Drink it with exotic seafood such as oysters, scallops and seafood platters … but it’s also wonderful on its own … well chilled, we think it’s the perfect sundowner for summer nights. Buy it for R210 online at www.vinoteque.co.za.
Long gone are the cold dreary days of winter and we for one, couldn’t be happier. Spend some quality time with the family and get the gang together for a day relaxing in nature. Ever heard of acrobranch? We won’t tell… Slide, balance, jump, crawl, dash, swing or stroll your way through the beautiful tree tops at Rosemary Hill. Choose between a variety of courses aimed at kids and adults alike. It’s a wonderful way to get those muscles and minds working while escaping the rat race. Details: www.acrobranch.co.za.

Three new finds we’re loving this month
The classic spin on the old G&T couldn’t be cuter or more convenient. Available in G&T Classic and G&T Berry Infusion, these Frost popsicles have a delicate sorbet texture. Get yours from Spar, Pick n Pay or Liquor City from R27. Details: www.frostpopsicles.com • Getting fresh breath has never been this easy. But this is not your average toothpaste. LUSH is the world’s first solid mouthwash. Keep your teeth clean by nibbling a tab before adding your toothbrush to the mix, or just add a bit of water, swish and spit. Loads of great flavours, R125. Details: www.lush.co.za • We love juice and with Sir Fruit’s brand new cold pressed range we’re spoiled for choice. Bursting with flavour and nutrients in delicious flavours … think apple, beetroot, raspberry, orange, carrot and ginger. Yum! Around R21.95 for 300ml. Details: www.sirfruit.co.za.
We just can’t get over the quirkiness of this minimalistic steel lamp mounted on natural wood, R795. It’s perfect for any bedside, desk or just to light up … well, any space. We spotted this gem at Incanda Furniture. Details:
