My Favourite Looks from the 2015 Oscars

My Favourite Looks from the 2015 Oscars

As I mentioned previously in this post, I’m a big fan of Awards Season Red Carpets. Mostly I scroll through the post-show red carpet gallery shaking my head thinking”if this is fashion I’m tapping out’, but every now and then I spot a look that gets my heart rate up. Hare are my favourite looks […]

A Night At Laborie

A Night At Laborie

I could talk your ears right off your head about the beauty, quality and experience of the Western Cape Winelands. Stellenbosch, Franschhoek, Robertson, Elgin, Hemel-en-Aarde Valley…there are so many wine farms, restaurants and tasting rooms to experience that I’ve spent the last four years working my way through them. You know, for science. Each wine […]

10 Tips for making a holiday video that people actually want to watch

10 Tips for making a holiday video that people actually want to watch

Remember when your family members would return from a week in Mauritius or a ski trip to Switzerland and force you to watch hours of shaky, boring footage of their holiday? Terrible shots of your cousins hiding their faces, your aunt covering the lens with her hand and about 120 minutes of boring shots panning […]

Finding the best steak in Cape Town

Finding the best steak in Cape Town

A couple of weeks ago, I asked the great people of Twitter: Tell me people of Cape Town, where do you go for the perfect steak? — Natalie Roos (@NatalieRoos) February 5, 2015 I received loads of replies, and I realised that steak is one of those things people feel really strongly about.

Picnic on the Werf at Spier

Picnic on the Werf at Spier

Every time I visit Spier I’m reminded what a well-oiled machine the farm is. I mean, they have great wine, amazing tasting rooms, a hotel, various restaurants, lots of activities and a seemingly endless calendar of events. So it’s easy to overlook the fact that they work super hard at being sustainable, looking after their environment and […]

Valentine’s Day #madeeasy

Valentine’s Day #madeeasy

I’ve never understood people who are violently opposed to Valentine’s Day. I mean, yes it’s a commercial holiday and yes you are supposed to show your partner how much you love them every day, but do you really mind spending a bit of extra cash specifically on this day to show the person you love […]

Barack Obama Shake It Off

Barack Obama Shake It Off

I don’t need to tell you that I’m a huge fan of one Taylor Swift. Her music is my spirit animal, her hair is sweet perfection, girl knows how to laugh at herself and she’s probably the most generous famous person out there. I mean, have you seen the Taylurking Christmas gift-giving video? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j3yyF31jbKo So […]

My Top 5 Looks From The 2015 Grammy Awards

My Top 5 Looks From The 2015 Grammy Awards

I don’t know about you I find awards season to be a bit of a non-event in the awards department. I mean, I don’t really care who wins the Oscar for best actor unless it’s Leonardo di Caprio, which it never is (ask me about my Illuminati theory). For me, it’s all about the red […]
