Amazing South African Instagramers

Instagram is definitely more of an obsession of mine than Pinterest... There I said it! The more I see the more I want to see more, especially if some of the Instagram accounts I follow are South Africans. Most of the Instagram accounts I follow are photographers and they are just phenomenal!

So without further adieu, please let me introduce you to some pretty incredible photographers/bloggers and of course #Instagramers 
I met Emma almost three years ago to take my wedding photos, naturally i was blown away by the photos taken on my wedding day and have since become a fan of all her adventures in South Africa and around the globe. Visit her blog here

I am a huge art fanatic. I can appreciate most art forms. I have to say though that i love the most basic form of art (not because it is basic, but because i consider  putting pen to paper as the original form of art). That is why I couldn't help but fall in love with Maria Magalena Atelier's beautiful drawings of her surroundings; Cape Town . Have a look at her beautiful collection of works here

I have spent a lot of time browsing through Emma Jane Menteath's lovely blog. She has some incredible photos and blog posts. 

Have you ever seen anything local which is more fashion forward than “TheVisual Journal”?

And there you have it folks my top 4 choices of South African Instagram accounts you need to follow!

{Discovery} Prestwich Collection

As you know I am always looking for something made locally in South Africa whether it be clothing, accessories, food you name it! It is my sole focus to share everything South Africa has to offer (because I am passionate about my country). Imagine my excitement when I discovered Prestwich Collection. I HAD to share this. The quality of each and every product on here is of a high standard.

I dont know about you, but I'm going to start spending!

{Ludwig's Rose Farm} Rose tinted shady afternoon

As a family we decided that we would put aside an afternoon to catch up and spend some time together before we went our separate ways for the festive season. We all agreed that we would do something different and relaxing especially after the busy year we had had and Luwig's Rose Farm was our outing of choice.

Not only were we welcomed by hundreds of beautiful roses but we also received top quality service followed by warm weather and blue skies (it really was the perfect day!)

Everything at Ludwig's Rose Farm focused on Roses; not only could you eat near the rose beds but the menu also included a few rose flavours in the food and drinks. Not only that, just a few steps from the restaurant you can buy a bouquet of freshly picked roses or purchase a few of the syrups or rose liqueurs at the shop. The options are endless. If you have time or would like to start a hobby why not sign yourself up for a class on roses?

Our table was beautifully decorated with roses

I chose a Rose flavoured Tiser. Which was nothing short of amazing.

I would give Ludwig's 10 out of 10 Roses ;)
