Things we love – what’s on our wish list right now

From home fragrance and jewellery to indulgent treats, this is what’s on our current wish list.


Australian brand Glasshouse offers a range of fine fragrances and bath and body products, but it’s their triple-scented candles that we’re really crushing on this season. The candles are made with a soy blend wax, as well as all-natural lead-free cotton wicks. They come in a range of gorgeous scents, including Vanilla Caramel; Camellia and Lotus; Violet and Patchouli; Wild Peonies and Lily; and Passionfruit and Lime. The candles come in elegant glass vessels, and they’re packaged in lovely soft-touch boxes.

Lindt has released a fun range of Hello City chocolate bars ­— Hello Durbz, Hello Jozi and Hello Cape Town. The Hello Durbs bar comes in milk chocolate with a crunchy nougat filling, while Hello Jozi comes with a cookies and cream filling. Hello Cape Town is an indulgent milk chocolate with caramel brownie filling. The chocolate bars are beautifully packaged with colourful illustrations depicting scenes unique to each city — think Moses Mabhida Stadium, Soweto Towers and Table Mountain.

The new FilLift from Diego Dalla Palma has been formulated to fill and smooth the skin for a fresher, more youthful-looking appearance. It’s packed with ingredients that protect and stimulate collagen production, which helps enhance the skin’s volume. At the same time, biomimetic peptides increase the skin’s density and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. The combination of cutting-edge active ingredients and modern techniques involved in the design of this skincare product make it one worth trying in the world of aesthetic medicine.

Valerie Messika’s collection of My Move bracelets has taken on a new aesthetic this year. While Messika has worked extensively with gold and diamonds, she has now introduced a new material to her range: leather. The result is a range of fun pieces that are colourful and versatile — they can be worn on their own for an understated and chic look or with other My Move bracelets for a more eclectic style. The range includes more than 300 bracelet combinations and various colour palettes, from zesty brights to elegant nudes, feminine pinks and rich blues.


As part of their Pro Planet Collection, Fossil has recently released a range of totes made from vegan cactus leather. The innovative new material is made from organically grown cactus leaves, which are processed using an energy-efficient technique that involves sun-drying, minimal water usage and no herbicides or pesticides. The gorgeous totes are available in four colours — moss, wine, black and brown.
