A Garden Route Sho’tleft

Knysna Featherbed dock

I want to preface this post by saying that I am incredibly devastated at the damage that Knysna and the greater Garden Route has experienced. I can’t personally imagine what it must be like to loose all your personal belongings, everything that has sentimental value to you. On top of that residents had to do a dangerous and uncomfortable evacuation not just of their home, but the general area.

What I do know is that Knysna needs our help to rebuild. Whilst donations help, ultimately a large part of the area relies on tourism for an income. And they need that income now more than ever. Please don’t let the destruction keep you away as the incredibly beautiful area still has so much to offer. There are so many amazing properties available to book in areas largely untouched by the flames. There is no excuse for not visiting. If you need further motivation, please scroll down.

H&M Online Shop

Eeeek! The H&M South African website launched and I’m loving being able to browse online just ahead of their shop opening in October in South Africa (which kinda sucks as it will be our post-wedding, financial low – but who cares!?) And what is even better is that they are not only going to bring their super affordable clothes to our shores, by the look of it they will also bring their homeware!

Price wise I can confirm that it is very much in line with what I paid in Europe last summer. In fact, the exact dress I bought in Italy, dress nr 6 with butterfly sleeves (which is awesome by the way!), retails for R399* online and I paid slightly more. On the site denims retail from R150* to R450* and homeware starts from as little as R60*! Quality wise I’d compare them to Cotton On.

So without further adieu, here are some of my favourite things! I’d like them all please and thank you!
