Kirsten Goss

Kirsten Goss’s jewellery is hot on my summer wish list at the moment, I just love her luscious lily pad rings & her peep toe earrings!

Although Kirstens’ shop is in London, she is our local talent. Born and bred in SA where she studied jewellery design at Stellenbosch. When asked about her jewellery, Kirsten has the following to say:
“my jewellery is for women who like to express themselves subtly & definitively, it’s for confident, independent girls. I find extreme beauty in the simple, conceptual & almost post-modern pieces; whilst at the same time being attracted to heavily embellished, over the top styles oozing with romance”

Hello Fox

I found myself back at Wolves this Friday for my daily caffeine fix and to sample some of their  irresistible Humingbird cake, DELICIOUS – its made with banana’s, pecan nuts and topped with cream cheese icing, kinda like carrot cake!! Just best I avoid this becoming a habit, not sure daily doses of Humingbird cake are good for the pre-bikini season regime??

Humingbird Cake, yummy…

What I really wanted to chat about was the surprise shopping spree that I went on whilst sipping tea, found some gorgeous jewelry, made by Hello Fox, they are cute little button-type earings, they’re original, reasonable and fun and for sale at Wolves, go check them out!

My new purchases, thanks Hello Fox!

Love Jozi

So; did a little bit of exploring on the weekend and stumbled upon a little gem of a shop in ‘downtown’ Joburg. The featured Love Jozi store is the brainchild of Bradley Kirshenbaum who has established a minimalist style space situated in the creative  Arts on Main complex off Fox Street.

The shop features two main designers; being the Love Jozi CityBoyRange, stocking their range of authentic Joburg T-Shirts, along with their Skyline 2010 key racks – ranging in size and colour. These are great, and had to spoil myself to one – just couldn’t resist, see below for the black range; Skyline2010… The store also features some of the awesome, ever-trendy Black Coffee range. Definitely a must to check out!

LOCATION: Arts on Main, Corner Fox Street and Berea Road, Fairview.
