beggar in JHB. somebody haul him off the streets and find him an art director.
found these 2 lovely signs in Vredehoek about a year ago.
jason walked in with half a box filled with Lindt balls after lunch. it sent amo into a shrieking fit, so dan poured them all over her. happy times.
The balls destroy Dan’s Low GI resolve.
amo, quite literally hysterical with joy. thanks to our pals at JMC.
sneaker goodness, old pic of mine from a shoot. shoes and legs belonged to Leannie, the stylist on set.
wolf shirt! i want to start a wolf shirt picture collection, send me yours if you have any. this was in a strange little bar in pretoria on my first night in joburg.
emma brought these back from topshop in london, but they didn’t fit her so she was giving them away. sadly they didn’t fit me either.
another rad thing from the design files of my friends jean and stuart, this giant rubber duck was floating in their pool at their housewarming, also from @Home. it doesn’t look giant but it’s big, trust me.
a while ago we were approached by Legit to identify a super cool up-and-coming sassy lady to become the face of the brand. after going through a whole lot of so-so’s, we all decided on Nonhle, who’s currently bubbling up all sorts of fuss from her role as presenter on Channel O, and all the fun stuff that goes with that, like hanging with Hollywood:
here’s nonhle snug under rihanna’s umbrella. and here she is during a makeup session:
and here’s a nice little write up nonhle’s progress got on Suga’s Bloggiwood local schleb blog, which is where i got these images too. i reckon nonhle’s only going to get bigger round these parts. that’s if she doesn’t get snapped up the in states since she’s there all the time.
found this rad stencil in the ‘burbs – claremont, area. it was next to this one:
nice and optimistic. dig this shirt designed by my friend, designer Rikus Ferreira.
they were on sale at What if the World… not sure he has any left. love this fridge magnet window poetry in a Levi’s store at the V&A Waterfront, from a while back:
and seen this guy loads on the net but found it in real life at Jean & Stuart’s place, who say they got it from @Home:
sitting in one of the “Kent nodes” they have stationed around cape town, this one in Sinn’s restaurant at Wembley Square in Cape Town. in an attempt to beat the sunday blues, what better way than spending an hour in the swimming pool then popping on down for some cappuccino and free internet. thanks kent.
it was marcia’s birthday today, so we ate hot dogs and chocolate cake and sang to her.
We talked about name-changes and going to see the Boks parade in their World Cup Victory celebrations. and here is a photo of Dan having his cake and eating it.
my friend anne-sophie invited me to add a facebook application called Product Pulse yesterday, and i’m impressed. it’s the simplest idea and allows you to rate a product on whether you LOVE it, WANT it, NEED it or HATE it. some products are jacked enough so that you can even buy it, and some are also very specific (ie. if you search Red Hermes Bag you get a Red Hermes Bag and not just any Hermes bag). it’s not perfect yet, but once every store has got their merch available through this sort of application i reckon online shopping might take on a whole other level —- badging. Because what you want says more about you than what you have, right?
see this way, i’ll be window shopping in order to show off the products i want, have or love to my friends, and window shopping is one step closer to buying. this is seriously an online shopping experiment that has HUGE potential. it also works off a system that worries brands more and more these days – peer endorsement. because every time you rate a product, it tells you who else has wants it, needs it or loves it, and you can REALLY see what’s going on in that foggy world of aspiration. also it’s just rad to space out and be a shallow consumer. it’s like the adult version of Dear Santa Claus…
thank you so much to one of our super grasses – Ashley Crosson – who totally surprised us by firstly, rocking up at the Cape Town office a few fridays ago (she lives in Jozi) and secondly, bringing us branded IG cupcakes, which she missioned to take with her on the airplane for us.
you are amazing ash. thank you from all of us.
