Yes, I am still alive! Kind of. I have had a bad case of bronchitis and I am struggling to get back on track healthwise. The antibiotic and cortisone courses I went on have really knocked me down too, so if you have any miracle cures to get back to being healthy me please let me know!
I decided to stop feeling sorry for myself and go along to my favorite fairs of the year! The Constantia Gift Fair. It is just up the road and I have the benefit of seeing my bestie Candice Noakes Dobson who is promoting the next book in her Pancake Series! All proceeds go to SARDA who are the ones who organize this fair.
I met up with two of my lovely friends, Jenni Moss and Annene . We first had a sneaky, delicious coffee from Rosetta while we all caught up and before the big shop started. What I love about this fair is how green and beautiful it is. Obviously being in the depths of Constantia helps too. You feel like you are in the countryside even though you are actually in the burbs.
There were so many beautiful things that I did not know where to look first. They have outdone themselves this year! Please, can I have truckloads of money so I can just buy one thing from each local stall holder?
I did refrain myself but these were some of my favorite finds! Bomba was there, I have been coveting their bags on Instagram for a while now and enter every competition they have running. I loved the Nuno stall and I could spend my month’s grocery bill buying up all the beautiful greenery there. Isn’t a home with plants that much happier?
There were Bali bags, morrocan bags and the clothing was just gorgeous. Think beautiful floral maxi dresses and flowing caftans. There is artwork and decor galore. I have my eye on a lovely little framed red fire engine for Elijah’s room and will probably go back for it this weekend. Blossom handbags were a new find. I am loving them and would love one in every pattern and colour. Natural Living collagen was there and I picked up a few new packets as I love adding them to my smoothies.
There was kids fashion and of course, my favorite stand was the `A Little Horse Called Pancakes one. Candice had just stepped out but I asked the lovely lady behind the counter if I may take a photograph of her and she so sweetly obliged. Please go buy one of these amazing books and help support SARDA.
I also found a product that I am in love with! The Mom Biography Book. What a beautiful and unique idea. It is a beautifully bound book that has all sorts of questions you always wanted to ask your mom. She needs to write in it and then you have her answers forever so stylishly forever.
I am definitely going to be heading back there later this weekend if only to go and try some of that yummy fish and chips and maybe another sneaky box of Basilei marshmallows! Will I see you there?
