i went away to langebaan this weekend for my sister's birthday and fell in love with the 'beach cottage' lifestyle all over again. my sister and i go to langebaan for our birthdays every year and have an absolute ball with our friends, on the lagoon and off. langebaan is a party town with a lagoon. it's rad. there were two 'life's a beach cottage' books at the house and i snapped a few pics of some of the pictures inside. the way they sell a lifestyle along with their recipes is genius! get them, they'll make brilliant xmas presents. p.s. that's my son, my sister and i on the beach today.
i can't actually comprehend how talented marietjie from skermunkil jewellery is. i'm so jealous. perhaps i should buy myself these new beauties to cure my jealousy. skermunkil is currently at the food wine design show in jhb. go see them!
