I gave it a quick read during my lunch break yesterday and most enjoyed the cover story on Heidi Klum. I think it’s awesome that she’s popped out FOUR kids but still looks ridiculously shaggable. It gives me hope for my not so far away fourties. I also loved spotting my friend Leanne Feris(wheel) who brightens up page 67 with a vox prop on a few of her favourite things. I actually flicked passed it a few times ‘cos I mistook her for a model.
Product-wise, I’m now in lust with this gorgeous pale blue Le Creuset set…
It totally won’t go with the blondewood, black and rooi colour-scheme I have going in my kitchen, but my soul, like, totally needs them. They’ve got that Mediterrenean/beach house vibe that makes me wish I had a porch to hold sangria-soaked outdoor dinner parties on hot summer nights.
I also really enjoyed the GH 101 Wonders section; it featured a whole bunch of ‘clever buys’ to help save you time and effort around the house. Check these out:
I’m also totally feeling this ruby-esque egg timer, R24,99, Pick n’ Pay:
You simply pop it in the pot and somehow it tells you when your eggs are done just the way you like them. As I like mine slightly runny on the inside, (perfect for dipping toast fingers!) I always take them out too early and end up in icky runsville.
So ja, if you like pretty things and have an interest in running your home like a mooi-looking well-oiled machine (as do I), I reckon you’ll dig Good Housekeeping. Reckon Woman & Home now have some serious competition…
