Geta Finlayson is the most renowned, well known and beloved jeweler of the Overberg! Her ability to capture ethereal beauty in an object has never seized to amaze me. It comes from inside her and spills into her work through design and loving care. Every time I wear my Geta pieces I feel deeply special and blessed. Read more about Geta’s Jewelley.
Nature, Respect and Protect Matters!
The Overstrand Municipality has drafted an Integrated Management Plan for the Fernkloof Nature Reserve. This without prior consultation with either the Fernkloof Advisory Board or Vogelgat Reserve. Please sign this Hands off Fernkloof petition! Read more on why we vote for Hands off Fernkloof.
Self-love and Beauty Matters!
Other than a walk in nature, we all know that the first step out of depression or just to feel better about yourself and life, starts with a little gentle self-care and a lot of healthy self-love. Refine anti-aging and laser clinic in Hermanus is a haven for many men and women for just that! The atmosphere at Refine Clinic hovers between chic, elegant, serene and funky. It is just so really lovely to be there! Probably especially because you can rest assured that you are in really caring, professional and good hands. It is a ‘breathe deeply, exhale and enjoy’ experience! Read more about my experience at Refine.

In the northern hemisphere, dreaming of a white Christmas conjures up images of picture postcard villages encrusted in snow. In the southern hemisphere, dreams of sunshine, white sandy beaches and white frothy surf come to mind. Read more in her delightful newsletter, the Grapevine.
