To The Fire Starter!

I know everyone is posting everything about our wonderful Nelon Mandela on his special birthday, so I might as well jump on the train. Saw this video about what life would be like is Madiba had access to all the social tools that we play with today. Plus a flipping cool ad (naturally) by Nandos.

Happy Happy Birthday to an amazingly special man that I wish I knew!

Nom Nom

We bought my mom-in-law a deathly chocolate cake for her birthday last week. Chateau Gateaux are her favourite, but if you ask me, for R228 a cake, I find them indulgently overpriced – I don’t care how delicious.

If I knew how to bake, I would have made her one of these little bad boys. A molten chocolate lava cake (designed by chef Stephane Bureaux) that melts its way into your heart. Literally. When the chocolate candle melts down, you tuck in.

Now that’s nom nom!

Will You Be My Bridesmaid?

If there's one thing that I love more than popcorn, it's getting mail in the post. 
And it’s even more special when it comes from my BESTEST who is a million miles away.

It was even hand signed, to add a little love.
Here is the original.

For the Love of Type 2

Ok, ok, I’ll admit it.
I’m a nerd! Full blown.

It’s the only reason I can think of for my very strange and crazy obsession with stationery.  And typography.
But you can’t look at these posters, by award winning designer Matthew Kavan Brooksand tell me that you don’t think they’re fan-bloody-tastic too!

For the Love of Type

One of my most favourite perv blogs is one little bird studio
It’s a mix of sarcasm, beautiful design and pretty things to oogle at all day long – if you’re into that kinda thing. Which I just so happen to be. Well, when I get the chance to spend time oogling. Which isn’t often these days, and it’s really starting to upset me, and … I’m totally veering from the point.

This blog, these designs, the way she plays around with typography, so awesome. Particularly her creative recipes as seen below.

I Want These

These posters are brilliant.
Minimalistic designs of popular kiddies characters - so simple, so clever, so "i wish i'd thought of that".

Hand Made Jewellery

I would love to own this beautiful collection of tetris inspired jewellery. 
It's all hand made in a bronze material  ... and even comes with matching earrings.
I'm not a fan of matchy matchy, but still really cool.
Found here.
