Treat. Yo. Self. to Fine Leather Goods from Jekyll & Hide

If not, may I introduce you to one of the best scenes in television history. Anywayyyy, there’s nothing I […]

Exploring the Stellenbosch Valley: Day 1

Exploring the Stellenbosch Valley: Day 1

A couple of weeks ago I was invited to join a few of my fellow wine and food-loving bloggers for a day out in the Stellenbosch Valley. We actually all spent some time discovering the delicious Helderberg in September, so it was a treat to be invited back, this time to explore a whole new sub-route of the […]

Soweto is not just another Township Tour

Soweto is not just another Township Tour

I used to have quite strong feelings toward what we often call “township tourism”. I didn’t like the idea of a bunch of tourists dressed in khaki driving through the township in a van, staring out at people and taking their pictures without their permission. In fact, I still have strong feelings toward anything that comes even […]

I’m going to Reunion Island!

I have had the massively good fortune of working with Destinate on Reunion Island’s #gotoReunion campaign for the past 18 months, which has given me the opportunity to visit this magical island 3 times. Like a gift from the gods, I will have another opportunity to visit, next week, from the 11th-18th of October. I’ve explored […]

Behind the scenes on “Ruil My Styl”

Behind the scenes on “Ruil My Styl”

I haven’t had the time to post anything in a while because I’ve been so busy I’ve hardly been able to find the time to eat – which is NOT how I normally conduct my life. I announced a couple of weeks ago that I was going to be heading back to TV for a while to […]
