Hey! Can I Live In You?

Hey! Can I Live In You?

I have been obsessed with tree houses since I was just a little thing. They seem so flippin’ magical. I’ve never actually been in a tree house, but I just know I would love living in one. So if you have a big garden, and a big tree, I have a boyfriend who can build […]

WIN! A Tasting & R500 Lunch At Nitida

Last week I was treated to a tasting and cellar tour at Nitida Handmade Wine with their winemaker RJ. The beautiful farm out in Durbanville and incredible wines are made all the more lovely by RJ’s laid back attitude and fuss-free introductions to his wines. Winemaker RJ. Looking chilled. Today I’m giving you the chance to […]

“Daydrinking Friday”: A Trip To Nitida & Anura

If you follow me on Twitter, you might know that I am a fan of daydrinking. In fact, I’d go so far as to say that daydrinking is my forte. “What is daydrinking?” you may ask. From the Scientifical Dictionary Of Natalie: “Daydrinking [verb] is the act of partaking in alcoholic beverages between the hours […]

Can I Have Your Attention Please

Can I Have Your Attention Please

People. I am growing up right before your eyes. I’m growing like a weed. Soon, you’ll be ruffling my hair, chuckling about how I was “just a little tadpole” when you met me. Don’t close your eyes. Don’t fall asleep. Don’t miss a thing. Announcement on Monday.

Cape Tattoo Expo:Opening Of The Art Exhibition

Cape Tattoo Expo:Opening Of The Art Exhibition

Last night, if you were standing on Bree Street, looking up, you would have seen a collection of gorgeous tattooed, pierced, fashion forward Cape Townians playing mini golf between pieces of tattoo-inspired art on the rooftop at Bree Street Studios. There was wine, there was art, there was a beautiful sunset and there was the […]

A Bubbly Tasting At Wine At The Mill

A Bubbly Tasting At Wine At The Mill

Mondays can be hard to deal with. They often involve a lot of emails, a lot of post-weekend depression and a lot of “I’m never drinking/eating again” or “From today I’m going to gym/yoga/pilates/boxing for at least 2 hours every.single.day“.

For Those Psycho’s On Team Cooper…

For Those Psycho’s On Team Cooper…

You may have heard that Ryan Gosling and Bradley Cooper are both in South Africa at the moment. Apparently they were spotted hanging around some hotels in Cape Town. I’m not sure what they are here for (but my spidey sense tells me its for a movie) and to be honest, I don’t really care. […]

Castings vs. Job Interviews

Castings vs. Job Interviews

In case you don’t know this about me, I have never been for a job interview. Well, I have now. But before this, I had never been for a job interview. I’ve always been a freelancer. Or worked on TV. So I’ve been for many, many casting… but never a job interview. For like, an […]
