by victoria comment



you may already be a huge fan, or perhaps not yet know of skinny laminx, but i’ve been a fan of textile designer heather’s moore’s line of home and fashion accessories (including fabric by the meter) since i started blogging in 2006. cape town, south africa based skinny laminx has a new line out and it’s right on trend with all the pastels i’m seeing around these days — acid pastels to be exact. and heather is offering up a generous reader giveaway today. The prize is a $100 gift card to spend in the skinny laminx Etsy shop — anything you like — all of which i should mention is designed by heather, and made right there in Cape Town.

  1. Where to start…I love the pastel pillows, the cute bags. I love them all, thank you for sharing the site, new fan here!

  2. Mine would be takuan (neon yellow pickled daikon) and gari (pink pickled ginger)–two of my favorite things to eat with sushi or rice balls. :-)

  3. Wow!! what an amazing competition! I have my fingers tightly crossed! I am completely in love with the Acid Pastel theme!! Love the colours and everything about it!! I think it is just perfect and would create the loveliest touch to any room in the house. I’m in love with the scatter cushions! Id love to have them in my house! My favorite acid pastel food combo has to be Strawberry frozen yoghurt with yummy lemon syrup drizzled all over it…yummy in my tummy!!! Ooh just divine!!

  4. What a fab giveaway…I am a huge fan of Heather, too! I vote for cornichons and honeyed apricots (probably revolting together on a plate, but I’m imagining Flower Fields in that combo).

  5. Ooh hooray – i love her shop (being from SA as well makes this giveaway even more fun). I’m going to go with cotton candy (pink) and lime.

  6. Ooooh – fig-ice sprinkled with turmeric! Probably terrible in flavour, but the colour combination would be to die for!
    So excited about this giveaway!

  7. Pummelo (love the color and the taste is to die for!) and saffron! Maybe it would even taste good :)

  8. Wow! Loving these hugely inventive Acid Pastel food combinations! You’ve got a heck of a creative-thinking bunch of followers, Victoria. Looking forward to drawing a lucky winner… xox Heather
