Some cheesey synchronized swimmers and a brand new Bombay Bicycle Club is a great way to get into this week. We killed their new album on our trip this weekend! Have you listened to it yet?

This morning Mr Price treated a few of us Jozi bloggers to a sneak preview of their winter range over some delicious breakfast at the beautiful Westcliff Pavillion. There are some amazing pieces that I can't wait to get my hands on!
"This winter, grunge meets glam in a mash-up of checks, matching-prints and gotta-touch textures. Laid back looks are layered with statement coats while soft silhouettes are toughened up."
Here are a few snaps of the morning. I made a little video too so you can see a bit of a behind the scenes of what we got up to!
Obsessed with this little Tartan set below. Available in store and online.

Adventure is out there.
In the spirit of adventure and discovery i've decided to start a series called "Go Explore" (A better name for Travel Tuesdays). It's going to be a travel bucket list of sorts. Seeing where other people have gone in the world and showcasing some local travel too.
We went on a wonderful European adventure last year and we loved every place we visited... but it also made us realise how incredibly beautiful our own country and continent is and how much we'd like to explore it so much more!
One place we visited last year was Amsterdam in summer. You can see my Amsterdam city guide here.
We loved it in the summer, but when I came across these incredible snowy pictures of Amsterdam on a blog called Leafde I think i'd quite like to visit in winter too. How magical do all the cruisers look covered in snow? I can imagine it would be frightfully cold walking/biking around town, but I also can imagine it would be quiet and lovely with no queues, warm cafes and bottomless stroopwafels.
Excuse me now while I go look up flights to Amsterdam. (FYI current prices on Emirates are about R7500 return).

I'm so sorry for the silence over here. We've had a crazy month! Dylan and I have shot 3 destination weddings in a row, all in different provinces and have only been home for about 3 or 4 scattered days this month so far.
We got home yesterday and it feels like it's the 1st of January still. Time to start the year properly, sink my teeth into my huge pile of work and make all those things happen that were supposed to happen in 2014. Like feeding EJN a bit more. I want to have a bit more structure and consistency and obviously more awesome things for you to swoon over. I have a plan and i'm going to try my best to stick to it.
Let's start with the Urban Outfitters Spring Look book for 2014. It looks like the summer holiday I never had in December! Riding bikes, climbing trees and staying out on the beach until sunset.
Where did you all go this December? I want to hear all about your adventures.
Dungarees! Have any of you braved these this season?

Hello Everyone! Happy New year!
I hope you all had lovely festive seasons, holidays and nice times with your families and it hasn't been too rough transitioning back into work mode.
We haven't had too much of a holiday as this is our busiest time workwise, and we can't really complain because we already had our summer holiday back in July. We did however manage to squeeze in some down time in the Midlands on the way back from a wedding we shot in KZN.
We stayed at the lovely Hillhouse which we went to a few years ago with friends. It's quite far up on a hill (which you might have gathered), with a lovely view of the midlands.
It's simple, cozy and relaxing which is exactly what we needed. We did take a few day trips to shop up the antique stores, visit Mandela's Capture site and find a great place for breakfast. We also filmed a bit of our trip too, which I still need to edit. We're still figuring things out but I definitely want to do more video content for EJN in 2014.
We were watching Dylan's gran's old 8mm films the other night and it's so lovely having home videos of trips and life to look back on. While rummaging through all her reels we found an old Cinetitle set (the letters above), which they used for titles in their videos. They had only been used once so Dylan's gran let us have them. I quite like them, they feel very Wes Anderson.
Before we left I found this big old straw hat. I love it so much - when I wear it I feel like this (above). So happy!
A little video sneak peek.
We also visited the beautiful, newly revamped and renovated Blueberry Hill which will be on the blog tomorrow : )

You may think you're looking at stills from a new season of Mad Men or Pan Am, but they're actually posts from Namibian fashion blogger Loux The Vintage Guru. I discovered this amazing Tumblr via Design Indaba and have become a TAD obsessed.
"The budding fashion designer and all-round exquisitely-dressed dude is making waves with a collective of twenty-something like-minded style innovators to promote the fashion industry in Africa and inspire the art of elegant dressing. The result is a visual delight of unparalleled style that Loux documents on his Tumblr."
He describes his style as sophisticated-punk. "I fell in love with vintage pieces, especially from the 1960s, and normally alter them to fit me and modernise them in my own way. Most of the suits I wear are actually my late dad’s suits. I wear a hat with every outfit as well as vintage club ties – I think they're both stylish and respectful."
Lourens Loux Gebhardt is definitely a name to watch, and i'm also particularly excited to see the progress of his own fashion label.

A nice song for a rainy morning. We had a crazy weekend so we slept in until 9am. Best.

I think it's time I brought back Monday morning music.. because on a Monday you really just need a good tune to take you into the week. Today's tune is "Stars" by a band called The suits. The Suits are a New York based band with an electronic rock feel and I really like them a lot.
We've been on the road a lot this month and "Stars" has pretty much been on repeat at full volume. The intro gets me every time!

We shot a wedding at a beautiful venue in the Midlands last year called Netherwood. On the same property is restuarant called Blueberry hill (now Cafe) which served up the best coffee we could find in the area and some mean blueberry pancakes (I hear their cheesecake is amazing too).
Well this cafe has recently been vamped up by the ladies behind Anatomy Design. They've transformed the space into a stylish cafe with beautiful details everywhere.
When you go inside you walk into a greenhouse sort of entrance hall full of light and and walls covered in micro greens. On the left you have the Blueberry Cafe with a long porch in the front overlooking the awesome view. On the right you have Die Winkel (The shop), which is filled with beautiful things for home and travel. Comfy couches, luxurious Wolf & Maiden luggage and other nice items for gifts or for yourself.
We went there twice while we were there for lunch and breakie and they were both delicious. I'd recommend the burger for lunch and the harvest table for breakfast. It's such a generous breakfast - You get a trio of freshly squeezed juices in little lab glasses, a hot breakfast, muesli and yoghurt (with berry compote) and a board of baked goods for R65. It was a little bit too good to be true.
If you're travelling in the KZN area anytime soon i'd definitely recommend a detour to visit Blueberry Hill. It's in Nottingham road (opposite Fordoun).

I love the stage our home is at but I often get itchy feet and want to re-do everything, or change things up when the season changes.
I still get a lot of my inspiration from these beautiful Swedish homes. This one in particular in Stockholm caught my eye.
