Your Weekly Joburg Guide
Home Decor Expo

Brace yourself, winter is upon us! In two weeks time, autumn will officially come to an end and then we can begin the winter warmer indulgences - lots of hot chocolate (with a dash of rum), evenings cuddled next to the fireplace (or heaters), beanies and scarves, and let’s not forget the Long Johns (as ugly as they are, they’re oh-so-warm). Bring on the chill - we’re ready!
