Terrarium DIY

Terrariums are very popular at the moment – have spotted them all over whilst I’ve been in Australia and I ogled over some beautiful ones at Opus Studios when I was last in Cape Town.
Loved this DIY tutorial I spotted on the Elle Decoration blog – if you are green of finger – give it a go!

I was delighted to receive an email from Yvette at ArtEsense - an online store which stocks handmade crafts curated from markets and artists in SA. We have such amazing creativity in SA and our craft scene is growing in leaps and bounds, so anyone who supports it and gets the name of the clever crafters behind these creations out there, is awesome in my opinion!

The online store also supports organisations which help local crafters through social upliftment projects and Yvette nurtures a relationship with the makers of the products she stocks. ArtEsense currently stocks Woza Moya Crafts, Jodi Meirings’ Dolly Dinkle from Cape Town and The African Art Centre as well as a few other well-known Durban brands – Terry Angelos, Sue Edgar from Wild@Heart and Barbra Rishworth Jewellery.

Product Trial: Oral-B Pro-Expert toothpaste update

Week 2 of the Oral-B Pro-Expert trial done and I must say I’m really enjoying this new toothpaste – it may sound funny but seeing as it’s something we do at least twice a day, everyday, it needs to be something that you enjoy!
I’ve thrown tubes of other pastes away in the past for being too gooey or overly minty, but so far I’m pretty happy with the results.

I’ve also introduced an Oral-B battery operated toothbrush into my routine and it definitely also makes a difference – I tend to brush slower and more gently with it, so combined with the paste I’ve definitely noticed a reduction in my gum sensitivity.

If you’d like to give the Oral-B Pro-Expert toothpaste a try yourself, it’s available at the likes of Clicks and Dischem at the RSP of R34.99. A bit pricier than most pastes, but it has these claims going for it:

With regular brushing, Oral-B Pro-Expert helps:
Prevent Cavities, Plaque, Tartar & Gum Problems
Build increasing protection against painful sensitivity
Whiten teeth by removing surface stains
Prevent Enamel Erosion
Freshen Breath


Still 2 weeks to go!
Keep following my updates and look out for a giveaway :)

Weylandts bone inlay products arrive in store – WOW

So I went a bit cray cray at the recent Weylandts sale – it took everything in my power not to leave with more and despite the fact that I did not need a tray end coffee table, I’m so glad I got it!
They were making room for the new stock which is hitting stores now and oh my, it is just as awesome.

The new bone inlay products are bang on trend and suit our SA decor lifestyle perfectly.
LOVING this dresser, which is combination of embossed metal sheet, bone inlay and glass mosaic work:
