XAMMI, directly translated as lion, is a Namibian creative brand, specializing in organic and abstract ceramics forms. Founded in 2022 by Melody Rohlfs, the brand exists with the aim of creating art that represents the life of women. A woman is a symbol of strength and freedom and that is what Melody wanted to showcase in her artistry. We recently caught up with the founder of XAMMI to find out more about her work and inspiration behind her brand.

I spend way too much time on the internet. 80% of that time is basically spent on the following pages and websites.
It’s the FINALE! We’ve reached the final stretch of our relay. We started off with Doctor Shindume who passed it on to Sunet Van Wyk who passed it on to Lee Neshila.
Our final #OshiSmoothieRelay episode is with the great Cheroldine Kanana. She is making her smoothie with the Sweet Oshikandela flavor.
Watch as we finish off this amazing race!
Episode 3 feature fitness trainer and actor, Lee Neshila. He made an energy and protein smoothie using the strawberry Oshikandela flavour.

The neutral colour palette, the woven baskets, the organisation? We love to see it all. The best part about following The Penatu Home are the tips the owner, Pekeloye Kamenye, shares with her audience. Monochrome also found out that she has an online shop where you can purchase some of the items as seen in her home. How cool?
We caught up with Pekeloye to find out WHY we should add woven items to our homes too.
With the colder months ahead of us, we are switching to preparing hot dishes instead salads. One of my all-time favorite winter tradition is soup. There is just something about a hot bowl of soup that comforts me and pairing soup with bread excites me. The crunch of the bread complements the soup perfectly and one of the best parts is dipping a slice of crusty bread into the soup.
Indoor plants are not only beautiful decorations, they also have many health advantages. They produce oxygen, they remove toxins and purify the air. They also increase productivity.

2020 taught us, if anything, to invest in the places we call home, seeing we were spending so much time there. From kickstarting multiple DIY projects to spending all our money buying new home furniture and deco items, we did it all.
