The Cape Town Sub-Cultures: Part 1

I am not a Cape Town native. I was born and bred in Joburg, and I’ve only been living in Cape Town for the past  11 months. In this time, I have been keenly observing the Native Capetonians I come across. Watching their ways. Noting their habits. Dissecting their species. And I have come to […]

LEE Launches At Bonafide

LEE Launches At Bonafide

My favourite pair of jeans ever, EVER have got to be my Lee High Waisted badboys. They are the perfect cut, nipping in nice and tight at the waist, just grazing the ankle and they are the perfect colour. Actually, I wear at least one item of Lee clothing every.single.day…and if you look closely you’ll […]

Latest Obsession: Googling Images Of China

Latest Obsession: Googling Images Of China

I desperately, desperately want to go to China for a couple of weeks next year. I mentioned it to Nash. Then I started thinking about it. Then I started Googling it. Now I’m obsessed with it. But just look at these pictures…how could I not be obsessed with it? I’m off to…uh…do something that’s not […]

Springbok Squad 2011 Announcement

Springbok Squad 2011 Announcement

Last night I, along with the rest of the country, watched as the Springbok squad for the 2011 Rugby World Cup was announced. Its not that I particularly like rugby, or that I’m particularly interested in the sport…but this is our national pride here. I am nothing if not patriotic. Also…my dad was in control […]

The Bouwer Bosch Show

My friend Bouwer Bosch is a pretty funny guy. Like, can’t-even-talk-cause-I’m-laughing-too-much funny. I think much of his comedy is lost to Twitter because he thinks in Afrikaans and Tweets in English. But believe me, in real life, he is hilarious. Actually, whenever I talk to him, I feel pressured to try and be funny too. […]

SLUTWALK

Tonight on Twitter, I finally broke my strategic silence regarding the Slutwalk. I had chosen not to comment on the movement, or on the Tweets of others because I feel that debate on Twitter is not something I want to waste my valuable anger on. Also because rape, and other sexual abuse is something I […]

VAMP:A Nicci St Bruce & Jade Mulvaney Short Film

Entrance is R20 and it’s sure to be a feast for everyone’s eyeballs. And probably create a need in me to be infinitely cooler than I […]

Eat Here: La Mouette

Eat Here: La Mouette

I eat out a lot. I’m by no stretch of my own hype-machine any kind of “professional foodie”, but I do consider eating amazing food to be a very serious hobby of mine. I don’t eat to survive. I eat because I absolutely adore food. Looking at, tasting it, savouring it, cooking it, thinking and daydreaming […]
