Secrets of my heart

I’m having a rough day. It happens to all of us. Sad news. Disappointment. Worry. Unhealthy relationships. Unachieved (is that word?) goals. Dreams that are still only dreams. Grey days. Days where we feel down. But the one message that plays out in my mind (and echoes through my soul) is that God knows the desires of my heart and has a plan for me and I need to trust in His timing. That realization is so comforting that I’m instantly refreshed and ready for any greatness that may come my way.

This little gem, sent to me by a dear friend also cheers me up (just keep clicking).


Knitwear Fetish

I am slightly obsessed with quirky knits. Which is strange because it is still summer here in glorious Cape Town (despite the odd rainy day here and there)… maybe it is because I long for cooler days where I can cuddle on the couch with a hot cup of Earl Grey tea, my fluffy socks on my loved one’s lap, peering out into a rainy garden… or maybe it is because I love it when designers think outside of the box and make clothes fun. A little bit of whimsy never hurt anyone!

Here are some of the lovelies I am currently ooohing over… (maybe it is time to start a knitwear board on Pinterest…)


I have recently started watching The Carrie Diaries and have been absorbed entirely. The story is sweet but the fashion is glorious! How cute is that jersey/sweater? (source)

And then during my mid-morning blog trawl I stumbled across this dashing couple and thought… “Guys should totally have fun with knitwear too!” What do you think? Agree? Have a look at this charming jersey worn by the dapper gent below:
