“It is not in the stars to hold our destiny but in ourselves”

William Shakespeare

On the first of October 2014, we officially took our destiny into our hands by launching our blog, Spruce. While we are both so proud of bringing this dream to fruition, we could not have done it without your support over the past few months. You have helped us to build a solid foundation for Spruce, so thank you to all our readers, subscribers, sharers and supporters. We appreciate it more than you could possibly imagine.

We will be taking a break from the blog over Christmas and New Year – Ilaria jets off to Plett for two weeks of sunshine and relaxation with her family, while Sam will enjoy the extended Christmas weekend in St Francis Bay with her family, then returning home to keep the economy going in Jo’burg 😉

Although we won’t be posting any new content on the blog, there will be an occasional tweet, photo or upload so make sure you follow us on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook to keep updated with our take on life, style and lifestyle.


We wish you a glorious and safe festive season – a relaxing break if you take one – and a fabulous start to the New Year. We look forward to bringing you more exciting content in 2015!
