Celebrate Christmas in Copper at the Stellenbosch Weekend Slow Market 27 – 29 Nov

It’s almost time for the annual Christmas Night & Day Slow Market weekend in Stellenbosch and this year an element of copper has been added to the celebration. The use of copper for kitchen accessories such as pots, pans and jelly moulds reflects the original Cape style kitchen dating back to the 1600’s – the same period in which Stellenbosch was founded and named after Dutch settler, Simon van der Stel. What better way to celebrate Christmas than with our very own Cape heritage and the hearty, wholesome food for which Slow Market is renowned? Surrounded by vineyards, oak trees and dangling copper décor, the Night Market, in addition to Saturday’s Christmas Day Market, promises to enchant your senses with over 100 specialty traders in local foods, wine, fashion and craft – the perfect opportunity to get all your Christmas shopping in the bag! There will be a wide selection of authentic items including fynbos topiaries, artisanal Christmas fruitcakes and handmade arts and crafts. Expect copper pots and spoons dishing up Christmas favourites such as gammon rolls, turkey, mince pies, German Bratwurst, Christmas puddings and champagne. Heavenly voices from the SA Youth Choir singing live carols will float about in the air, complimented by the soothing smell of real Elgin Valley Christmas trees. In case all this isn’t enough of a gift, on Sunday 29 November, award-winning, multi-platinum SA artist, Kurt Darren will be playing at the Oude Libertas amphitheatre as part of the Oude Libertas summer concerts alongside the Slow Market Christmas fair.  This coppery Christmas wonderland can be found under the oaks at Oude Libertas Estate in Stellenbosch....

Underneath the Christmas Tree – GoPro HERO

Dear Santa. I have been very good this year. Very! I would love to find a HERO under the tree on Christmas morning. Love you long time. Charlene xoxo Do you think that will work? I hope so. Maybe you’re thinking why do I want a GoPro? Well, I also thought the GoPro was only for extreme mountain bikers and paragliders and the sort. Doesn’t really sound like my life. BUT after watching this awesome video that Carol Gallarelli filmed of her little boy’s 1st birthday on her GoPro (and edited using GoPro Studio) I WANT ONE! For Cara’s 4th birthday next month we are throwing her a pool party in the park in our complex. The HERO will be perfect to film this special event. HERO is designed with simplicity in mind (great news for me) and it’s rugged, waterproof housing makes it perfect to capture all those fun family activities without the constant worry of damaging your precious equipment. Don’t be fooled by HERO’S tough exterior though; with HERO you will still capture the same eye-popping footage that GoPro users are used to (1080p video at 30fps and 720p video at 60fps). HERO retails for R1 999.00 and is available at leading retail stores which include Cape Union Mart, Sportsman’s Warehouse, Outdoor Warehouse and Incredible Connection. For more information, visit Omnico or connect with World Of Heroes on YouTube, Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram. Happy shopping! xoxo...

All I want for Christmas… wink-wink

Just in case there is a Secret Santa wondering what I want for Christmas ;) Have you seen the absolute gorgeousness of the Stila Eyes Are The Windows – Soul eyeshadow palette?? The shades look perfect. Need are I say more… Consol Solar Jars. Want, want, want! I adore these metallic temporary tattoos from OhOneOne. I want them all, but these are my favourites: Who doesn’t want a La-Tweez Pro-Illuminating Tweezer?  Plus you can now choose between 5 gorgeous colours. Effective and pretty! Available from selected salons, beauticians and spas. And last but most definitely not least… After reading THIS amazing review on In My Bag, I just have to experience the sexiness that is Kiehl’s Original Musk Blend No1 EDT.   What is on your Christmas wish list? xoxo...
