Market on Main @ Arts on Main

Johannesburg’s newest food and design market, held every Sunday from 12-3pm, can be found at Arts on Main. Just like most Joburgers, I am thrilled that there is finally evidence of inner city rejuvenation and a sense of much-needed ‘street culture’. Instead of the sterile, cold malls we are accustomed to, we can now visit eclectic, outdoor spaces and truly enjoy a taste of ‘city life’. ‘[Market on Main] will not just bring the best in local, natural and organic products together but also promises to be a community hub. A place where the best in the industry can connect and share their expertise.’

Kalk Bay - Cape Town

My husband and I recently visited the gorgeous city of Cape Town for our December holiday. We had a fabulous time dining at a wide variety of restaurants, sunning ourselves on the beach and visiting gorgeous coastal towns dotted along the Cape Peninsula. One that stood out for me is Kalk Bay, eclectic and relaxed with an interesting and fascinating history. Originally starting out as a mini-port for the Dutch East India Company in 1742, it’s “harbour and fishing operates at low key and the village has become the centre of antique, art and bric-a-brac shops with many outstanding restaurants who, with excellent food, maintain the unique and special character of this historic harbour village.”

mindvstongue asked: Did you go to design school? If so, which school did you attend?

I've been wanting to go to design school for interior design...

I'm curious to new schools.. I live in Ohio, so I have slim choices.

Do you enjoy what you do?

No, I didn’t go to design school. I studied a BA at the Wits University in Johannesburg. I am from South Africa, so unfortunately I can’t recommend any design schools in the States. Sorry!

But thanks for emailing me your question.

Art d’ Afrique at 44 Stanley

There are all sorts of African treasures and artifacts in this arty store, located in 44 Stanley, Milpark JHB. In it’s past life, Stanley used to be a series of industrial buildings and run-down workshops, but now he has been transformed into an urban oasis where you will find restaurants, art studios and a host of fascinating one-of-a-kind shops. Just like the one is this picture…
