Gosh, let's think back to last year this time, when it was Spring in Europe & Autumn in South Africa. Everyone was out and about, enjoying social gatherings with friends and family, shopping up a storm and enjoying the outdoors. Nowadays we have had to adapt to a new way of life. A life of social distancing, self-isolation and meeting up with friends and family via Zoom. Luckily we have had amazing brands to thank for helping us #staysafe during this terrible pandemic, otherwise known as Corona. One of my favourite brands that I have recently discovered was Omni Protect, which is a hand and surface sanitizing spray that contains 70% alcohol. Did you know that anything less than 70% alcohol is ineffective and anything over 70% alcohol causes blockages which ultimately doesn't help the germ from staying clear from us. Omni Protect has combined the perfect formula to ensure that we are protected from any germs and has also ensured that it is environmentally friendly.
I have tried to minimize my time spent away from home, but obviously grocery runs are essential once a week. I make sure to sanitize my hands and clothes before leaving home. Once I return from the shops I make sure to sanitize my steering wheel, grocery bags & myself once again by using Omni Protect's sanitizing spray. You can never be sure what you have touched at the shops that might have carried the virus or any germ for that matter. As they say, rather be safe than sorry right? I think the best thing about Omni Protect and the reason why I use this sanitizing spray over any other brand is because Omni Protect is currently the only sanitizing spray that is safe to use on softs, like delicate fabrics. My worst nightmare would be ruin my favourite coat or jeans because of a harsh sanitizing spray. I know that Omni Protect sanitizing spray is safe to use on my clothes and on my grocery items. It really is a win win!
Some more exciting news about this brand, that came to my attention today, which I had to share with you! Omni Protect has partnered with some amazing local personalities, such as Amanda du-Pont, Siya Kolisi & Rachel Kolisi to donate 4000 litres to communities in need as part of their CSI campaign called #SprayItForward. Omni Protect is giving back to communities by rolling out sanitizing stations to major retailers to both the staff and customers.

Wishing you all health and happiness during this difficult worldwide pandemic.
Stay Safe!



Since the COVID-19 (Corona) outbreak, the world has pretty much come to a stand still and I can only think and wander what the future has in store for us once this pandemic is over. Although the world economy is taking strain, I can only sympathize with small businesses across the world who are suffering the most in the business world. There are so many small businesses out there that have had to put a sudden halt on production while under #lockdown and have to patiently wait for this all to blow over. I know that the pandemic will soon be over, but the ripple effect that it will have on the economy is detrimental. Anyway, enough economic talk, I just wanted to pop in and promote a special jewellery brand that I came across at the beginning of the year, which I have instantly fallen in love with!
“Adorn at dawn” is this bespoke jewellery design’s philosophy. In such times of uncertainty and stress, I love the way that A Bird Named Frank sees jewellery as fundamental to the human psyche. A second skin that becomes an uninterrupted history of wearing our imagination.
I am so excited to have had the opportunity of collaborating with A Bird Named Frank (ABNF) for a Client of mine, who is getting married in Franschhoek later this year. ABNF was established in 2010 and their high quality handmade jewellery embody their founders, Caryn and Peter, who both have a background in fashion and sculpture.
Featuring the “Rarara” necklace from the Cloud Gate Collection, the three polished brass circles on the sterling silver chain is a delicate and unique piece that can be paired perfectly with a sophisticated outfit for a special occasion, but could also instantly dress up a casual outfit out on the town.
For the ears, I have featured the “Falling Pearls” and “Hold the Ocean”, brass and pearl hoop stud earrings from the Hot Spring Symmetrical Collection. I love the fact that pearls are the only gemstone that come from a living being which always gives a timeless, yet sophisticated look. These earrings are big enough to wear as a statement piece with your hair tied up, but are also so comfortable to wear and pair beautifully with a subtle necklace or bracelet. The use of the natural river pearls means that the pearls all have their own asymmetrical shapes, making each pair of earrings unique and different from the other. 
I particularly like the natural matte finish of all the ABNF products, which will develop a natural patina over time. If you prefer bright and shiny jewellery, all products come with a special polishing cloth for this purpose. Inevitably, over time, the shine will fade so the polishing cloth is great for quickly adding the shine back into the jewellery.
