missibaba have launched their new handbag and accessory range, which they've called 'cowboy's little girl,' and it smacks of the old west as the name suggests. take a look at their facebook page and get practicing your lassoing skills, cos i don't want to see any of you cowgirl's crying when you've got the 'i don't have a missibaba bag' blues.
the owner of milk and i are creating our first window together, inspired in part by 'the loeries.' (south africa's awards event for advertising, design and media) our aim is to create a whimsical window that expresses elements of our personalities and our creations inside. i hope you pop by this weekend and peer in!
i haven't had fun with la photo cabine for a while. here i am, showing off some of my waechtersbach ceramics collection. (p.s. if you're about to click on the link and you're at work, mute the volume...!)

pretoria is home to tons of creative talent of late but this is the first time i've found an independent fashion shoot on lookbook by residents of the area. i haven't been able to find out much information about genie miller, but it seems that a relative of hers took these images, which i found on his website: leonard miller. all i know about genie is that she's seventeen. i'm always amazed at teenagers who are this talented and creative already! we look forward to more 'looks' and gorgeous photoshoots.

after hiding away with 3 seasons of 'true blood,' the highlight of my weekend was driving out to samantha in stellenbosch after demanding her rasberry and white chocolate cupcakes on twitter. luckily she got the hint and made two trays full.

my 'online shop' on flickr has reached over 5000 views. thank you to all of you who have ordered online from beatnik bazaar and i look forward to tons more purchases - christmas shopping perhaps?! all you need to do is tell me what goodies you'd like, what colours you'd like them in and they'll be couriered to your door or office desk after they're made up. happy shopping!
maaike, the incredible photographer from her own company 'we love pictures,' recently tied the knot herself and we've been waiting patiently to view her beautiful wedding. i see she's posted a few pics so far on her blog and i noticed her love for skermunkil jewellery! i also have a few pieces left in the shop, including a few exquisite brooches. i can't wait to pour over every picture from maaike's wedding, but i have one pertinent question; who was taking the photo's while they were getting married? i hope maaike can tell us!

all images from 'we heart it'
i've heard from twitter that apprently vida e caffe are now selling red velvet cupcakes? it's now all i can think about and they've turned me into some kind of cupcake fugitive on the run from the weight gain police. i think i'll have a tea party this weekend. take a look at these cool ideas.

known as an 'indie darling,' zooey deschanel is one of my style icons because she has an obvious passion for vintage glamour which isn't polluted by gauche brands. her love of sweet frocks and pencil skirts, teamed with flowy blouses graduates with ease to exquisite evening dresses for swanky red carpet affairs. zooey and my beatnik model, samantha, look so similar as well, making zooey the perfect beatnik woman! zooey manages to express her quirky personality as the actress we loved so much in '500 days of summer' in the way she dresses, and as the lead singer in the band 'she & him.' i look forward to seeing her in many more inspiring outfits.
