01. The Little Chapters podcast. I listened to three episodes of this gloriously soothing podcast on my drive to and from Cape Town earlier this week, and I was left feeling so inspired. I found the episodes on routine and self employment particularly enlightening, and I love listening to Jessica Rose Williams and Kayte Ferris ramble on about their own careers, rituals, and home lives. If you’re into minimalism, simplicity, and slower living – with a
refreshing burst of authenticity – you’ll love this podcast, too.
02. This natural, anti-septic balm. I’ve been applying this cruelty-free, local lovely to my lips and cuticles ever since I received it a couple of weeks ago, and I’ve also found it handy for dabbing onto Beanie’s scrapes, bruises and itchy bites. It contains nourishing beeswax, shea butter, mafura butter and olive oil, along with essential oils of tea tree (which is a great anti-septic), rose geranium, and peppermint.
03. My fancy new jammies. I recently added a pair of Bena Loungewear’s short sets to my sleepwear collection, and I am all sorts of obsessed! They’re ridiculously comfy, they don’t crease, and they’re so pretty I find it difficult to change out of them in the mornings! I’ve currently got my eyes on this track set for winter – and you can bet I’ll be living in them, day and night!
04. The Bachelor Season 23 (US). I’ve long been a fan of The Bachelor franchise, but I’ll admit that the past two seasons have left me feeling as though something was missing. In fact, I’d lost interest to the point where I didn’t even make it through the first episode of Becca’s season… but then came Colton’s season and I have been on tenterhooks since day one! The finale aired in the US on Tuesday, and since I’ve been streaming this season I’ve seen all the episodes – and let me tell you, it’s a good one! Definitely worth getting your hands on (I may just go back to watch Becca’s season of The Bachelorette now!) I haven’t been keeping up-to-date with the SA version, simply because I find it too cringe-y! Are you a fan of The Bachelor franchise?
05. The Social Food Club’s falafal wraps. If you find yourself in Greyton in the near future, do yourself a favour and look up The Social Food Club. You’ll find them at the Saturday morning market, and they’re also at the Wednesday produce market (at The Greyt Oak Centre – next to Pure Cafe). I’ve also heard that they do a mean chilli con carne (though as a vegetarian, I can’t vouch for this), and their signature flatbreads are a must-try. Guess where you’ll find me this Saturday morning…
