make merry

Every Christmas, one of my mom’s many tasks is to bake the bits needed to assemble a gingerbread house. A few days before Christmas we gather around the big dining-room table stacked with bowls of icing and colourful sweets, and each person decorates a panel. The result is a delightfully eclectic creation that we demolish and eat when we’re opening presents on Christmas morning. The tradition started more than 10 years ago when our kids and their cousins were small, but – like so many other Christmas rituals – we’ve kept it up even though they’re now all grown-up. The first gingerbread house my mom and husband built (he was the one who sparked the idea) was a ramshackle creation that collapsed during the night, but now my mother’s totally aced it,…

1 I’m not always the best at following an evening beauty routine, which is why I love these wipes. They take off all my makeup – including waterproof mascara – really easily and they leave my skin feeling moisturised too. The sensible clip lid means the wipes don’t dry out. African Extracts Rooibos Hydrating Gentle Cleansing Facial Wipes R39,99 2 I pretty much only wear dresses and Poetry always has the best selection. Its sizing is inclusive, and many of them fall below the knee and have sleeves too. Whenever I wear my buys from there, I get heaps of compliments (which never hurts!). Poetry Harlow Wrap Dress R899 3 I loathe board games that take hours and hours, and have loads of complicated rules. Bananagrams is fast and fun – and it helps…

kelli clifton: my best beauty buys for travel

‘I’M ALWAYS TRAVELLING, especially locally. I gravitate towards fast-acting products that don’t take up much room in my luggage and aren’t prone to leaking or spilling. Many of these gems are multipurpose too, which saves me time, money and energy whenever I’m on the go.’ 1. Fragrance JO MALONE LONDON ROSE & WHITE MUSK ABSOLU (R3 325 FOR 100ML) ‘Out of my entire Jo Malone London fragrance collection, this is the one I turn to come holiday time, as it’s so versatile. At first it’s quite bold but then, throughout the day, it develops into a soft, powdery clean musk, which I love.’ 2. Makeup Brush BOBBI BROWN FULL COVERAGE FACE BRUSH (R690) ‘If I was told I was only allowed to use one makeup brush for the rest of my life, this would be it.…

ask vicki

Q ‘Any ideas on how to maximise the space where our fridge once stood?’ VICKI SAYS: Have I ever! Isn’t this kitchen cubby brilliant? By moving a double-door fridge to another spot in the kitchen, this pantry cum coffee-and-tea cubby space became available. Deep drawers are perfect for awkward appliances like hand mixers, and the space is also ideal for everything from spices to dry goods, cookery books and chopping boards. The counter space can also double up as extra space (or a gin bar) when you’re entertaining. Q ‘I’m looking for an affordable and cool idea to create a work nook at home. Can you help?’ A: We love this concept that saves on floor space beautifully. All it takes is four boards cut to size, glued then nailed together and mounted…
