Nando’s Tangy Tomato For Those Who Like It “Not Hot”

Nando’s Tangy Tomato For Those Who Like It “Not Hot”

If you don’t know how much I love Nando’s, then you don’t know me at all. I am a Nando’s fiend. I love Nando’s so much that I once wrote a letter to Helen Zille asking her for more conveniently placed Nando’s in Cape Town. But then I just moved closer to one. “Spicy rice […]

How To Do A “Big Concert”: Advice From Natalie

Kings Of Leon

Kings Of Leon

Hey! Wanna Die Of A Heart Attack??

Hey! Wanna Die Of A Heart Attack??

I have a long-standing love/hate relationship with American FOOD Network chef, Paula Deen. She’s American (hate). She’s from the South (love). She has hair the size of Turkey (love/hate). And she’s not afraid of copious amounts of butter streaming through America’s veins (hate/love). You  might know her by her famous shout “HEY YA’WLL!” I once […]

Hello, Ben Green? I’ll Have Them All, Please.

Hello, Ben Green? I’ll Have Them All, Please.

I have been searching for a great pair of brogues for months. Months I tell you. And nowhere could I find them. Either they were too expensive, too ugly, too cheap, or too orange. I have two pairs that I got from Mr Price and I adore them, but shoes really do only last a […]
