Back home, missing Jaipur, but enjoying old fave haunts in #capetown
I left for Jaipur the day after the finishing touches were put on the freshly-renovated Skinny laMinx shop, and my focus was very much on the details, the snags, the finishes and other niggly bits. So walking into the shop today, I saw it as a whole for the first time, and it felt really fabulous So fresh! So light! So much to see! It's great to be back.

Ooh, look! The Oslo chair in our Breeze print. Like it? Order one! We're working with Fechters to make up three styles of chair in your choice of fabric.
I've been giving one of our brand new Travel Bags a test run on my Jaipur trip, and it's sooo useful. Mine has all my chargers, external power, headphones, eye mask, blow up head pillow, mints, tissues and moisturiser. Oh, and toothbrush and toothpaste too. Find them online and in the shop.
We know exactly what to get a fussy bloke / design guy. Check out Stories for loads of gift ideas! ^^ #skinnylaminxgiftguide
Have you seen our fresh new tray selection? This one is called Shadow Glass, and is based on shadows of antique glasses that I noticed at the Met in New York a few years ago. Available in store and online. Find the link in Stories.
I started my last full day in Jaipur with a visit to Umang school for mentally challenged children, to donate leftover supplies from the @ritchieacecamps. What an inspiring place, full of focus and calm and hope, where the motto is "I Can is more important than IQ". #Jaipur #umang
I've had my Alexander Sack in the Roof Garden print everywhere with me on my Jaipur trip, including my visit today to the super-stylish Teatro Dhora store. @teatrodhora
Swipe right for the odd additions spotted in amongst all the Krishnas and Shivas and Hanuman marble statues in Jaipur's marble-carving district today.
Mindblowing morning in a section of the Old City of Jaipur, where men with hammers sit in tiny rooms with a granite slab in the centre, whacking books of paper sheets with silver in between, turning it into super-thin silver paper for silver foiling, the outside of sweets, etc. Have never seen anything like it! The whole neighbourhood is filled with the sound of silver hammering.
Meanwhile, back in Cape Town, #teamSKINNYLAMINX has been taking a tour of our printing works, cos all our goods are proudly #madeinsouthafrica! Looking forward to getting back home and stuck in with my fab team again!

I'm still at Diggi Palace in Jaipur, enjoying being in this magical place, with lots of time to think, dream and plan. October is always a month of change for me, so I'm looking forward to whatever it brings.
I took lots of pics of my ceramics on the opening night of the supersized Skinny laMinx shop, but then sold most of them! Looking forward to getting back to my ceramics class soon. #heathermooreceramics
Is the plural of palmetto, palmetti? If so, a band needs to be named 'Sweaty Palmetti' right this minute.
