| Photo Diary | New York Perspectives
Last week I was sent to New York for work. A whistle-stop breeze through the Big Apple for work. Work or no work - the camera went too so we could catch sights while I was shunted from one mission to the next. The thing that struck me about New York is that...

| What I Wore | Still Liking
My love for garments that are loose, slouchy and generously roomy for movement means that I spent next to nothing on maternity wear. I wore most of my clothes throughout pregnancy and fit comfortably back into them again after our boy's arrival despite some...

| WHAT I WORE | FlyKnit Chukka
When Hiro visited Dallas, he bought himself a pair of Nike Free Flyknit Chukkas. Trainers are much better priced in the US than over here. Anyway, that was in winter and anyone who has a pair of Flyknits will tell you, they are not ideal the cold. Hiro says...

| BEAUTY | 3 Cleansing Balms
I love cleaning my face! I enjoy the ritual of it and the feeling of a just cleaned and moisturised face. I just love it - it makes me feel relaxed and ready to chill out.  At the moment (and throughout my pregnancy) I have been adoring cleansing balms. Thi...

| ABANDONED | RIGHT UNDER OUR NOSE
People often remark on how we seem to have developed a knack for spotting abandoned buildings. It's a strange thing for us to hear because it is more of a case of..... .......HOW CAN YOU NOT SPOT THEM........... Hiro spied this disused warehouse on the dail...

| Creatures | The Baboon & the Lion
Let's take things back. Back to when we touched down in my motherlands. When we soaked up the dust and dry heat on a safari in Tanzania. Safaris are a magical mix of expectation and luck because in the domain of the beast, we are no longer in control of the...

| Objects | Omamori
Strictly speaking, you're not supposed to make a collection of these. They are said to retain their powers for 1 year before they need replacing. You are supposed to take them to a local temple to dispose of them so they can be purified in a ritual burning....

| Photo Diary | Horyuji
Japan is not short of beautiful mind staggering temples and though we have not visited enough to claim a clear favourite, there is one that stirs genuine emotion and inspires us more than any other we have visited and that is Horyuji.   Every temple in Japa...

| What I Wore | Kikoy
I always take a kikoy away with me when I am travelling. Always. I have done so since I was a child. A kikoy is an east African wrap. A large bit of fringed cotton cloth that traditionally worn like a sarong by men on the Swahili coast. For me, they are the...

| Photo Diary | Wide Skies
My mind's been a-wonderin' back down memory lane. Meanderin' and escapin' its sleepless state to the Free State in South Africa when I found myself staying in a little house on the edge of a diamond mine.  The Free State is South Africa's breadbasket becaus...

| Ideas | Victorian Bottles
A stroke of luck brought me and these Victorian ink bottles together. I am taken by their luminous sea-like hues, roughly made appearance and even the jagged lips that top a few of them. I say a few of them, because I have in fact landed about 10 of the did...

Our recent foray into leafy green flora madness has been flourishing beyond even our own initial plans. Our home definitely has a bit of a jungle vibe to it these days and we LOVE it. Living with plants adds a sense of well being, helps to keep the air clea...
