Closed: Locally made giveaway

As promised here is little surprise for you to celebrate this blog’s birthday and to say thank you! If you have followed this blog for a while then you know that I am a supporter of local design. I wanted to make this giveaway special so I selected local brands that I believe in. I own items by each of these brands and I cherish them. They are beautifully made, high quality and most importantly made locally.

The winner of this giveaway will receive each of the following:

Wanderlust Backpack by Double Edge

Branch Necklace by Trinket Design

Double Edge is a Cape Town based brand who craft amazing high quality leather goods. I used a Double Edge backpack when I visited Bali and it was so comfy and handy. The fact that they look good helps too! Visit their website at

Lara Mars is also a brand based in Cape Town. They produce beautiful vintage inspired dresses from limited edition fabrics. I own two Lara Mars dresses which I love! Visit their website at

Trinket Design is jewellery brand based in Johannesburg. They create highly crafted quirky jewellery pieces. I own one of their brooches and it is one of a kind! Visit their website at
