Nick Brandt.

I’m extremely lucky at work to sit next to my friend who has the same off (off) beat sense of humour as I do. She makes me laugh all day without fail. And I mean really laugh. Like, tears in the eyes, laugh. She also loves animals as much as I do and has this beautiful Nick Brandt elephant shot as her screensaver. Every time I see it I’m shocked by how striking it is. Africa sure is a long way from Australia but it may be getting about that time to pay it a visit.

An Aussie Party.

A little while ago an Aussie wedding on Green Wedding Shoes caught my eye. It was stunning, simple, beautiful. I couldn’t stop thinking about it and how much I loved the warmth projected. So when my lovely friends at Elle Decor South Africa asked me to contribute a guest post for their International 25th Birthday issue – lightbulb moment. And how beautiful are Tim Coulson’s photos? De-vine.
