Our September Wishlist
South Africa is a melting pot of cultures and there are many delicious meals that can be made using the proudly South African Wonderbag non-electric slow-cooker. The portable heat-retention cooker continues to cook for up to 12 hours, allowing you to make a range of meals (from curries and samp to yoghurt). No plug needed! Available in an array of colours and fabric designs, the Wonderbag will make a proudly SA statement wherever you are. Details: Outdoor Warehouse stores / www.wonderbag.co.za
Light up your life
Another proudly South African product, a SoyLites candle is more than just a candle. They not only burn beautifully and are environmentally friendly, but also smell great and can be used as a moisturizing treatment for your skin! Dip your finger into the warm, 100% natural, cosmetic-grade soybean oil that forms around the wick and voila! Details: A six-pack is R175 or R30 individually / www.soylites.co.za
This month we’re loving local
We’re all about local products this heritage month and that’s just one of the reasons we love the all-natural Katavi Botanicals skincare range. Straight out of Africa, the range is specifically formulated (using traditional African folklore during the research phase!) to counteract and improve the appearance of photo-aged skin. Details: Available at Azikho Natural and Organic Emporium, Gregory Park, Garlicke Drive, Ballito / 0768986697.
Time for tea
We’re huge fans of AGA, and would, if we could, have one burning away in our kitchens all winter. Synonymous with good food and fine living, the AGA cookware and accessories are highly desirable. So, we’re first in line for one of these kettles. With a thick solid base which ensures a quick boiling time and an insulated easy-grip handle, it’s available in several colours, R1500.
