Virgin Active Wellness Wednesday: Healthy Road Trip Snacks

Virgin Active Wellness Wednesday: Healthy Road Trip Snacks

I love a good road trip. But I’ll be honest, it’s the snacks I love most. Pretty much as soon as we hit the highway, I’m in the cooler bag, claiming starvation. It doesn’t mater if I’ve just had a full meal. If there’s food in the car, I will eat it. Like, I can’t […]

A Little Personal

I feel like I haven’t really been getting into personal stuff on this blog at all recently. It’s weird, when I started Tails Of A Mermaid, it was a place to talk about my life. Now I sometimes feel like I need to keep my life off this blog at all costs. I found this […]

These video’s just popped up in my Facebook feed and reminded me of how awesome RAMfest was. Man, there has been some really cool footage to come out of this year’s festival. Of course, out of HUNDREDS of hours of footage and THOUSANDS of images, there is still not a single frame of me. I […]

A QMS Facial at Manx Consulting

A QMS Facial at Manx Consulting

A couple of weeks ago, I went for my 6 weekly facial at a new QMS Consultancy in Green Point called Manx. You probably know that I am completely obsessed with QMS and I use their entire rage religiously. I was greeted by the lovely Charlene Schumacher, who I liked immediately. Personally, I feel it’s […]

Things To Do In Cape Town: #CTLuruxy with Cape Town Diamond Museum

Things To Do In Cape Town: #CTLuruxy with Cape Town Diamond Museum

With winter coming up, we’ve got to start thinking about things to do in Cape Town other than go to the beach and climb Lion’s Head. Winters in Cape Town are rainy and wet and sometimes this can carry on for days (apparently, although I have yet to see this- I’ve been in Cape Town […]

Attention All Adultchildren

If I had DSTV, I would most likely spend every Saturday morning in my pajamas, on the couch, with a bowl of cereal, watching cartoons. You guys probably don’t know this, but I was a KTV presenter for eight years,  so most of my Saturday’s throughout high school were spent in a studio full of […]

Virgin Active Wellness Wednesday: Try Yoga

I recently went to my very first yoga class. Like, the first one of my entire life. I arrived feeling nervous and pretty much like the fat kid at the pool party. Everyone seemed to know each other and be cool vegan bi-sexuals. It was awkward. So to avoid eye contact with the cool vegans, […]
