Being the tea addict that I am, I'm normally rather fussy about not drinking rooibos.  However, this little yellow tin of cuteness has totally changed my mind about it.  I was actually attracted to the tin at first but it turns out that the stuff inside was pretty good too.  I bought it in Joburg a while ago and as my stash decreases I'm starting to worry about where I'm going to find it here...

Golden triangles.

Yesterday I finally got to see my friend Caitlin for the first time in what feels like an age.  We went what was supposed to be just window shopping, had a lovely dinner and went back to her house to watch old episodes of Big Bang Theory.  I really did mean to only window shop and stay away from buying but when I saw the collar tips on this shirt I simply couldn't help myself. I've been looking for something like this for ages, and anyway it was from Mr Price so it didn't make that much of a dent in my purse.


I also picked up this very cute little ring.

From Tree to Tree.

A short stop-frame animation that I made with my younger sister while on holiday.  She isn't the most patient subject and seemed to think there was a possibility that there were snakes in the leaves despite the fact that it was the middle of winter, so it is unfortunately a little shorter than I would have liked but hopefully she has learnt how fun it can be.

Hello mountains.

This afternoon we got back from the Drakensberg.  I'm feeling super lazy and my holiday homework has very suddenly caught up with me so these pictures shall have to suffice. Sorry about that.

Harry Potter♥.

I re-watched the last Harry Potter movie today with a friend for about the fifth or sixth time.  I guess you could call me a Harry Potter nerd- so much so that I still welled up a little at all the sad bits.  In fact I'm not sure that I'll ever grow tired of rereading the series.

Seeing as though I've spent a large portion of today looking at pretty pictures on the internet I thought I'd share some of the beautiful clothes I've found that I would just love to have.  I really wish that every time I repined clothes on Pinterest they could just magically appear in my cupboards but no such luck. Sigh.

Four eyes.

I went for an eye test the other day and found myself rather disappointed when I heard I wouldn't need to get glasses just yet.  I think I'd rather fancy a pair.  (All pictures from Pinterest)

For a while now I've been thinking about how amazingly cool it would be to have a record player.  In fact I've even bought some records before, despite not having anything to play them on and have used them to decorate my room.  Anyway this changed recently when my grandad said that I could have his old record player.  I was as excited as a five year old on Christmas Day and rushed home to set it up.  Considering it's over 40 years old it still works really well.  My grandparents also passed on their record collection to me and so the sounds of Simon and Garfunkel, The Beatles, Bob Dylan and Queen have been filling the house since Thursday.

I also had a chance to buy a few records from the SPCA Kloof secondhand shop.  It's basically a garage with roof to floor shelves of records ranging from R5 to R20.  It's like record heaven.  I also bought another from the iheart market this morning.  They cost more around R50 but they are in slightly better shape.

Game reserve.

On Sunday our family got back from a short holiday to a game reserve up the coast.  It was nice to get away for a couple day and we had a good time looking for animals on our game drives.   We saw plenty of buck of all shapes and sizes, giraffe, zebra and all of the Big Five bar leopard.  I must admit, I've was rather jealous of the overseas tourists that were there with their fancy big cameras and super long lenses as I sometimes battled to get good pictures. Sigh. Anyway here are some that I took with my trusty little Canon.

Tea towel.

I found this tea towel in a cupboard in our kitchen the other day and since then it's been hanging up on my bedroom wall.  Just think it's really cute and it reminds me of a holiday our family went on to England where we went long boating with my grandparents.
