Buds on the Bay

our favorite Durban eatery, perfect for a long and sunny day, and absolutely delicious
what we had: mojito's, muscles, mini-bunny chows and line fish with an special mash

anything other than tv

we bought ourselves a cheapie version of Monopoly ~ i still totally suck at this game, just like i did when i was 8 and lost to my (little) brother all the time... how cool would this Nintendo version be... totally nostalgic about Super Mario and other childhood games
we have out Uno'd ourselves (to the point of making up our own version)
three years of marriage and we still don't turn the tv on (and we live in a studio apartment)
i dream of an enormous "games and puzzles cupboard" for one day....

thinking inside the box

 this pretty box head comes from a happy site called drawingmyownconclusions, her book, by the same title, asks:  
Do you need YOU time? 
Do you need to play? 
Do you need to think about life differently? 
Do you ever miss your box of 64 crayons with the sharpener in the back? 

If you answered yes to any of these questions, this book is for you!

The pages are filled with black and white line drawings with kind words and quotes that call gently to your spirit. With pages to color and ideas to ponder, the pages can take you anywhere you want to go.

 The reason why I'm thinking about boxes is Cupcake Couture's package project! Cupcake Couture has been one of the most inspirational businesses in Durban for me, the products, the packaging, and the overall brand, is beautiful and inspiring. I am thinking about signing up for the package swap, just making sure that the ideas i have in my head will be something I can actually achieve - will let you know how that goes! Don't you want to sign up too?
and lastly - i am working on post's about what has been happening with my (not so little) swim school and about an amazing day we had out and about in Durban... be inspired everyone!
