Life Lately: July 2016

Life Lately: July 2016

I used to do these posts pretty regularly, and I was reminded how nice they are to read when Irina from I’ll Take It All posted hers here. Sometimes it’s nice just to read about someone’s everyday life and see what they’ve been up to – not necessarily a review or a travel story. I […]

Renovating Our Little Sussex House

Renovating Our Little Sussex House

Keenan and I have been living in our little house for about 18 months now and we still love it as much as we did the first day we moved in – probably more, even. In fact, we’ll often just be sitting around and one of us will turn to the other and say “I […]

Get Your Documentary Fix

Get Your Documentary Fix

Despite my best intentions to get out and about this winter, the truth is, it’s actually just really really nice to curl up under a blanket in front of the tv when its freezing cold outside. I am *very* into documentaries, conspiracy theories and morbid stories about kidnappings. Does this make me a nutcase? I’m […]

Girls Night In at Camps Bay Retreat

Girls Night In at Camps Bay Retreat

Is there anything more luxurious than a night of face masks, hair masks, wine and chocolate with a girlfriend? Well, the only thing I can think of that could possibly make this situation more luxe, is if it all went down at the beautiful Camps Bay Retreat. I was invited to visit the hotel, which is located […]

The Most Interesting People I Know Podcast

The Most Interesting People I Know Podcast

Ever since I first started listening to podcasts, I’ve wanted to have my own. But starting a podcast can be a lot like starting a blog ie. overwhelming. How do you decide on a theme? Is it going to be just you talking about your life, or are you going to be telling stories? Are […]

With my own podcast officially launching next week, I wanted to share the long list of podcasts I subscribe to.

The Most Interesting People I Know Podcast

It’s long been a dream of mine to have my own podcast. I’ve been thinking about launching one for years. I listen to so many every day, and you know, I love pushing myself. But it was hard to decide whether I’d be able to commit to it, what my subject matter would be, and […]

Investing in Art: Swain Hoogervorst

Investing in Art: Swain Hoogervorst

A few years ago, I decided that I wanted to start collecting as much art as I could afford by young artists I believe in, and talented people I know. Obviously I could never afford works by any of the more famous names, or the artists with the sold-out shows. But the guys who are young, who […]

A Weekend In Riebeek-Kasteel

A Weekend In Riebeek-Kasteel

Because I love what I do so much, it sometimes feels like I’m pretty much always working. I’m always taking pictures and Instagramming and Tweeting and writing blog posts and meeting people for work and having coffee dates for work and yes, even tasting wines for work. Sometimes I go away for work. Sometimes I […]
