We had a truly wonderful time in Köln, Leipzig and Berlin this weekend. Thank you to everyone for lending us your hearts and your ears.
And a special thank you to everyone who supported 1000 Drawings Berlin and bought art for such a good cause!
See you soon!

We had such a great time at the South African Music Awards on Monday. Well done to all the winners. It was an honour to be nominated and lovely to see so many old friends and make some new ones. And when Ladysmith Black Mambazo sang I felt like I turned into one enormous weepy goosebump.
Also a huge thank you to Sies!Isabelle for my beautiful dress.
