Our August magazine is now on shelves, and in honour of it being our annual Luxury issue we thought we’d share a list of some of the lavish treats and temptations on our minds…
1. Gateau cakes – Woolworths R104.95
Woolies has introduced a new range of deliciously decadent gateau cakes to their confectionery repertoire. Flavours include carrot, black forest, caramel swirl and coconut – all sinfully rich and delightfully indulgent.
2. Faux fur throws – @home R2 999.99
Winter is still firmly upon us, but being bundled up in one of @home’s unbelievably soft and silky faux fur throws is enough to make hibernation seem like the most alluring activity on your weekend agenda.
3. Sgt. Pepper handbags – Missibaba R6900-R8250
Missibaba is turning ten years old this year, and to celebrate they have launched the Iconic Missibaba Collection in which they reinvent some of their classic signature styles. The first in this range is the stunning Sgt. Pepper, a bucket bag made of soft camel leather in an array of designs, patterns and colours.
4. Charlotte Rhys atmosphere diffuser – Yuppiechef R429.00
Surely there are things as luxurious as walking into a beautifully scented room, and these diffusers from Charlotte Rhys are an easy way of filling your house with a subtle fragrance. Take your pick of scent from the cool, green No.17, the oceanic St Tomas, the earthy Under the Leaves or the spicy Victor.
5. Men’s signet rings – Dear Rae (prices vary according to metal and design)
Dear Rae’s beautiful rings have long been adorning the fingers of South African women, and now the talented Karin Rae Matthee has designed a range for men too. Available in yellow gold, white gold and silver, they come in a range of round and faceted shapes, with some featuring a subtle etching detail.
