• About 12 years ago i spent a few months backpacking in Central America and one of the highlights was the time i spent in Mexico – chilling in hammocks, visiting ruins, watching the sun set while lounging on the beach ice cold cerveza’s in hand...you get the slothful-not-a-care-in-the-world picture.

    One of my regrets now is that back then i had no clue who Frida Kahlo was and so sadly failed to pick up any mementoes with her face and the trademark colourful-kitsch style that has become so synonymous with her …that’s why i love going to the Hadeda Mexican store because i can indulge in all those Mexican fantasies that had no bearing on my backpacking reality back then…

    These beauties popped into my inbox the other day …

    i’d love to pop the cushions onto a navy blue buttoned velvet couch (priced from R225).

    And these pretties are perfect for a mojito-fuelled party with platters of quesadillas, tacos and guacomole…loving the skulls and roses number (aprons = R250)
