Echoes approved – On my radar this week

It’s winter…and as much as I should be loving boots, snoods and all things cosy and warm…I’m loving these folded aviators from Ray-Ban. This modern take on an old classic has been brought out to mark Ray-Ban’s 75th birthday. And they’re gorgeous. And tiny. And handbag size. And I can’t get them *frowny face*

You can check them out at your nearest Sunglass Hut or on the website here

Wish the shape worked for me. But hey ho…oval face, square frames apparently. So I’ll file it under ‘the one that got away’.

If you’re a Capetonian and you love vintage or vintage-inspired clothing, you will know about Babette. So whimsical. Love her floaty, feminine dresses.

Pretty whimsical and pretty…pretty.

I’m a big fan of hot chocolate. And I’m a fan of chill. At the moment…I’m hardwired to Chilli hot chocolate…with lashes of cocoa and a dash of chill powder. So yum. And perfect for winter.

Hot stuff!

Beef stew, yes please. Beef stew slow-cooked in red wine…hell yeah. My winter recipe is without a doubt beef bourguignon. Takes a little time and care, but oh so good once its done.

Hearty. Meaty. Warm. Comforting.

And finally, my winter tipple is Talisker. A little pricier than your average whisky, but as a sipper it’s always been one of my favorites. I’m currently enjoying a 10-year old .

Talisker is an Island Single Malt Scotch whisky produced by the Talisker Distillery, CarbostScotland; the only distillery on the Isle of Skye.
