hello

Because that represents a kiss, right? Are we dating, perhaps?Technically, an “x” isn’t an emoji, but I think it falls into the same category. And that wordless dictionary with its cheeky icons is growing by the day. In fact, sentences with real words are practically an endangered species. What you get on your cellphone screen these days is a message in code, a kind of riddle.It’s like those aptitude tests that you have to complete when applying for a promotion. For example, everything in green is positive. Including circles. But beware, squares are negative. Trick question: what does a green square mean, then? (My answer to the latter: confused. And I wouldn’t be wrong, no matter what the psychometrists say.) In the state of Queensland in Australia you can…

your space

WINNING LETTER Style conundrum Ashley Viljoen of Johannesburg writes I grew up reading a lot and would often get my hands on my mum’s magazine collection. Home was always in the pile of mags and how I loved the swirls of colour, décor and food – even at a young age. I’m obsessed with making a space beautiful – beit on canvas or in a room. But I must say I’m a walking contradiction – Ican’t decide between vintage or modern and sleek.I recently acquired a space of my own and now I’m torn between the numerous options for making it a home. Your magazine is such an inspiration and perhaps soon I’ll settle on a style, though I can’t promise it won’t change every couple of months!…

She made a few for friends and they were a hit, so Megan decided to add them to her product range – along with her mom Annemarie’s crochet throws.“My mom and I are very creative,” says Megan. “We can get bored very easily; so we like to experiment and, after some practise, bring to reality what we want ourselves and what we think others will love too.”You’ll find the busy creatives showcasing their work at…
