I Scream! You Scream! We All Scream! For The Ice Cream King!

I Scream! You Scream! We All Scream! For The Ice Cream King!

About a month ago, I was up in Joburg for work, complaining on Twitter about something of little consequence (as one does) when I got a Tweet from a guy called @Paul_Ballen, offering me some of his home made ice cream. Needless to say, I thought it was a spam bot at first, but after some investigation […]

Starring Sienna Miller and Guy Pearce, the story follows Edie, a trust fund baby who drops out of art school to move to New York and become a model/socialite. This movie really intrigued me and I think Sienna Miller was phenomenal. Her […]

Completely Obsessed With Jeffrey Campbell

Completely Obsessed With Jeffrey Campbell

OH JEFFREY! Nash is heading off to LA soon and I have been spamming him with Jeffrey Campbell requests. I don’t know what I’ll do if he returns without at least one pair…but it will probably involve a Kill Bill-esque yellow suit, and I probably won’t be remembered as completely “sane” by those who know […]

Latest Obsession: BuchuLife Waters

Latest Obsession: BuchuLife Waters

I first tasted BuchuLife Herbal Waters in my office, cause my colleague Fran drinks them all day long. Now, I am completely obsessed with them. Especially the Cranberry flavour. BuchuLife Herbal Waters contain no sugars and contain tons of naturally occurring anti-oxidants, bioflavonoids and vitamins, derived from the oil of the Buchu leaf. Indegenous to […]

But this one seems ok, and to be honest, an unhealthy chicken dish every now and then never killed anyone (it possibly did).  Chicken For Dudes What You’ll Need: – 1 pack chicken pieces (any […]

MK Awards 2012

MK Awards 2012

Last week ended in two days of whirlwind-flipping-crazy. I got up at 4am on Thursday to catch a 6am flight to Joburg for the MK Awards. We booked into our hotel and spent all of Thursday doing a run through of the 100 items in the mega script, only running over the initial wrap time […]

Current Obsession: Lamelle Nourish Range

Current Obsession: Lamelle Nourish Range

I have been having lots of issues with my skin recently, since going off a certain pill. My hormones have been all over the show and subsequently my skin has been suffering. I’ve had breakouts, crazy weird combinations of both excessively oily and excessively dry patches, and a painful rash around my jaw area.  I […]
