ASA’s recent favourites

Hi y’all

Today’s post is short and sweet. I thought I would share with you a few of the things I have been enjoying lately

Nathaniel‘s Bamboo kitchen board

I purchased this from Checkers (a local chain store) and have used it both as a platter to serve food and cutting board


Positivity at home

Based on my reflection of what 2016 taught me (here), you will know I have decided to strive to live in “gratitude mode” and focus on finding things to be grateful for daily. In line with that, I am trying to create a welcoming/peaceful atmosphere in my flat with positive messages

Door stopper I picked up at Sheet Street
I also picked this from Sheet Street

Keeping active indoors (more like trying to)

I gave up my gym membership when I moved cities as I was not using it fully and decided to train outdoors for the 21km (refer to my previous post about preparing it for it, here). Running outside is becoming increasingly difficult as winter is fast approaching, so I have decided to work out in the comfort of my home, using Fitness Blender and Billy Blanks‘ Taebo  Youtube videos.

I purchased these from Game

Colour black

I am determined to eliminate anything grandmother-ish”” and/or I no longer wear from my wardrobe & replace it one item at a time. Almost everything that have caught my eye and I have purchased recently is black & I must be going through “loving black every day all day” kind of phase…lol!

From left to right: (i) both unibody piece and bra from a lingerie boutique in Menlyn, (ii) chocker and black top from River Island,  (iii) sun glasses, earrings and dress from H&M
These flat shoes from Woolworths


You guys know I am proud and self confessed coffee addict 🙂

Favourite latte from Seatle Coffee
These three pots I got from Mr Price Home

New places

Most capetownians will laugh at the idea of moving up north: I mean what would life be without Table Mountain and the beach? Lol!… I have genuinely enjoyed discovering a few outdoors spots Gauteng has to offer, and it seems there are lots of these hidden gems.

Alkatrand Park, Pretoria Lynnwood
I got to tag along a friend of a friend’s party at The River Cabin

I went for a hike in the Walter Sisulu Gardens (& would highly recommend it)

Have great week
