Oranjezicht City Farm – Market Day

I’m house-sitting this month which has got me feeling particularly grown-up and “domestic goddess-y”

That being said, I spent my saturday morning at a famer’s market, and LOVED it. Im vegetarian and try to avoid dairy and eggs where I can, so all the fresh, organic produce was an absolute dream for me. I am very concious about what I put into my body and Im always looking for more natural options for the beauty products I use too.

The oranjezicht city farm market had everything from rooibos espresso, to gelato, beautiful black figs, buckets of fresh rocket and much, much more. I got some pears, crisp green apples, green beans, corn, rocket, caramel rooibos espresso pods for my nespresso machine, rose gold measuring spoons and some gorgeous sunflowers. I also treated myself to a rooibos ice tea while I was there.

The market sells both organic and homemade products, eco friendly homeware and recycled planter bags to sustainable meats, and fresh produce right from the farm itself, there are also “happy hens” eggs available.


some pre-loved items for your home


The market is held every saturday from 9am to 2pm at Granger Bay, near to the V&A waterfront in Cape Town, I would suggest getting there earlier to avoid missing out on some of the amazing fresh produce. Bring a carrier bag for all your goodies and prepare to spend the morning enjoying healthy eats and chatting to farmers and stall owners about their wonderful goodies.


I hope you have enjoyed this post, and I hope to see you at the next market!



Celebrate Body Lotion | Lush Cosmetics

I don’t know if Im completely won over by the smell of this body lotion yet. That said, It feels AMAZING on my skin. I suffer with really dry skin, especially my knee’s, ankles, elbows ect. The cream smoothes on so beautifully and keeps my skin so soft and moisturised for hours and hours. IMG_6722

The little pot contains Brazilian Orange oil, Lime Oil, Cognac Oil, Almond Oil and organic Cocoa Butter.

I think it could be the Cognac oil in here that Im not quite loving, smell-wise. But Im a huge fan of Citrus smells and the combination of Orange and Lime is beautiful.

This is the first body lotion Ive used from Lush and I will definitely make an effort to try some of their other ones.

I hope you enjoyed this post, all my love, Quartz xx
