I am in Durban for part of my holiday and a friend [fantastic Durban blogger Nadia] introduced me to the Corner Cafe, which is an eco-restaurant - basically meaning, they do what they can to save the world “one cappucino at a time”. Definitely worth the visit if you are in Durbs, it's fun [they were having a no shoe day last time I went ;)] and different...with a healthy dollop of coolness.

I have come across some amazing things on my web searches but some of my favourite stops recently have been the recycling ideas that people share. The fact that they can see another use for something 'old' is fantastic and it's a skill we could all maybe use in future. Behold a collection of recycled coolness... Wavesong on Etsy, Groove Press, Tearful Touch on Etsy, Zitta Schnitt, Follow Studio, Salvaged Grace, Paper, plate and Plane , The Tao of Dana, Family Fun, Craftser , Apartment Therapy, Current Catalog, Mariposa Avenue

Love Street Art, it will always feature on my blog for it's artistic activism. The following are a few of my favourite pieces...these people are super talented [some of them look like Banksy's work]. Enjoy!

Recession. Difficult times means we have to be a little more creative when it comes to gifts this holiday session. We recently gave our clients the following gift, made from scratch, it is simple yet hugely effective and the clients loved it. You can actually put anything in a jar and label it. I am using 'the jar' idea for many gifts this year [these are R10.99 each] - you can fill it with all kinds of stuff! Such fun. The packaging is important, so I thought I would share the labels, available here for you to download and do your own cookie jars [sharing is caring ;)]. Consider it a gift from me for your support. Just right click on the label image and save. Be creative. Have fun. Happy Holidays! Joyeverafter.
