I’ve been dreaming of a trip to South Africa for years – Kruger National Park situated at the very top of my wish list. And unfortunately, discovering the Singita Lebombo Lodge hasn’t made the yearning any easier. 15 suites are set into a clifftop overlooking the Nwanetsi river and the main lodge is located to take full advantage of the sweeping views of the Lebombo mountains and surrounding bush. The eastern Lebombo mountain range also boasts the highest concentration of wildlife in the entire park! One day, I will go but in the meantime, I can only dream.
After hearing so much fabulous buzz surrounding Bauble Bar, we thought it was about time we take their goods out for a test spin. We hand picked a selection of brassy bracelets and necklaces from hundreds of gorgeous baubles – and what a fun ride it was! The very reasonably priced beetle pendant necklace is one of my personal favorites. To wear it as a bracelet, keep the necklace clasped, wrap it a few times around your wrist, and loop one of the chain links around the beetle’s legs. Double duty! Thanks for letting us play with your baubles, BB. We love them!!
