A Message from South Africa

Dear Bloggers

Just letting you know I am traveling around in South Africa for a month. I have limited Internet connection therefore it's been a little quieter than usual. I have big plans for 2012! I can't wait to share all my travelling stories with all of you. I have taken so many photos and am able to catch up with some family members here in SA.

Since I have been living in Qatar for the last 4 months I realized how lonely it can get without good friends and family that surrounds you. So I am soaking it all up here in SA. I was able to meet up with my mum here in SA. She traveled all the way from New Zealand to meet me here.

I held a snake, ate biltong, visited vintage shops, enjoyed seeing wild animals and hopefully will be feeding elephants soon!

Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year, if you don't hear from me soon. Thank you for all the support through this year. I leave receiving emails from all of you.

Charlotte Taylor s/s 2012

You got to love Charlotte's new range for 2012! Fun, colourfull and quirky. I better start looking out for ankle socks, perhaps I might find some in South Africa. Who knows what I might find :) I am looking forward to doing some shopping as my suitcase was half filled with presents and half full of clothes, which means I am in desprate need of some shopping (I will always find an excuse to do a bit of shopping).

A spoon full

A spoon full of chocolate keeps the doctor away! And how can you resist making these? I got this cute recipe from  Delicious Delicious Delicious and the good news is that it's packed full of amazing quick recipes.

Just thought I'd keep you guys inspired while I am sitting in Jeddah Airport for 11 hours lol.. the things we do :) I do wish I had one of these to suck on as I just had one disguising meal here in the airport :(

Bon Voyage

Hi lovely readers

There is an hour and a half till I leave to head to the airport, I am super excited and also very nervous as I have an 11 hour layover in Saudi Arabia. Although I am sure I will be fine it's kinda scary traveling to an unfamiliar & strict country by myself. Fingers crossed I will have WIFI lol otherwise I will probably just play my iphone dead.

To those who don't know, I am heading to South Africa for a month, I have sceduled a few post for all of you but do note that my updates might not be so regular due to Internet connection availability.

Be sure to pop back and visit often as I will updating my travels on here, or if you want instant updates check "Polli blog" on Instagram as well as Twitter!

Travelling to South Africa




So I am exactly 2 days away from traveling to South Africa for a month. I am excited, nervous and all over the place! I have never traveled all by myself before, especially not on such a big flight. Traveling it's such a big dream of mine, I can't believe I just tossed myself into this situation. You either have to sink or swim :)

I look forward to meeting with some family members over there, as I haven't been back in just over 7 years. So I am trying to be well prepared, and to  sort out my last minute packing and buying of things.

Today I have to:
* Exchange my money (Riyal) into Rand
* Buy a couple of last minute presents
* Print my airplane ticket
* Make copies of the address to put onto my suitcase

Visiting Impressions Boutique

My favorite jersey at Impressions. Funny enough my mother-in-law has a Teacup Yorkshire Terrier and her name is Rosie (I ended up sending the picture to her and she nearly died).

The incredible cupcakes provided from Tasmeen for Impressions Boutique. Look it even has the logo of Impressions Boutique stamped on them awhhh... Plus we walked away with a bag filled with goodies and a cupcake places in a pretty blue box!

Dressed by  H&M

This beautiful table filled with lollipops, cupcakes and juice was divine!

Meet Carla a fashion blogger for Nomad* here in Doha, Qatar as well as fashion designer for her own brand called  Cala Mari.

I was invited to to attend the showcasing of the new collections from up-and-coming regional and local designers in Doha at Impressions Boutique!

It was a great evening filled with treats, a photobooth as well as cupcakes and lollipops! It was a great night to meet other local designers, photographers and bloggers. Well done Carla, what a great event!

note: all photos where taken with Instagram

Gosh and Golly

Gosh & Golly is an online Etsy store filled with paper goodness!And to think this paper mobile will only cost you $48 ! And all of it is handmade.

I think part of being a graphic designer I am naturally just drawn to things made out of paper, I have been since the age of 3 apparently. I think it's the idea of being able to create something from scratch.

The Twelfth Letter


''The Twelfth Letter' is a creation pieced together by the same two Sydney designers that made their first step into the industry back in 2007 with basement experiments under ls.clothing."

They collaboration of their lookbook is amazing, and extremely well planned out + I am a big fan of the clothes. It's definitely something different which you won't probably find in a mall.
