Five things to do in and around Cape Town this summer

Back in September I posted my Cape Town Summer Wishlist, which features a few things I’ve never done in my own home town before, but am dying to do this summer. It was so well received that I thought I’d put together a list of five more great things to in and around the Mother City this holiday […]

WIN: Tickets to Diemersfontein Pinotage on Tap 2016

WIN: Tickets to Diemersfontein Pinotage on Tap 2016

Imagine a day in the beautiful winelands, with endless fountains of wine, platters of food and entertainment. A day where you don’t have to worry about who is going to stand in line to buy the next bottle, because the wine is on tap. A day where you don’t have to decide what to order off […]

Botox Talk with Dr. Cara Duminy

Botox Talk with Dr. Cara Duminy

I’ve been getting Botox for the past 18 months and I’ve never once been shy to admit it. Why should I be? It’s a part of my beauty routine and I’ve only ever felt true, deep gratitude at the results. I inherited a deep frown line between my eyes from my mom and just after […]

The De Fazio Wedding Bali

The De Fazio Wedding Bali

My little sister is married. On Saturday, 3 September 2016, Jonti Roos and Nicholas De Fazio promised to be together forever, in front of 60 loved ones in Canggu, Bali. It was the most beautiful wedding I have ever been to and I cried so hard my false eyelashes came off. It was such an […]

My Cape Town Summer: Wish List

My Cape Town Summer: Wish List

I’ve just returned from two dreamy weeks in Bali and while leaving a holiday and an exciting new place behind is always so hard, it’s made easier by the fact that I get to come home to one of the most wonderful cities in the world. A city that thousands of tourists flock to every […]

Staying Inspired

Staying Inspired

Sometimes having a blog can get a little lonely and every now and then it can feel like you’re shouting into the wind, only to have your words blown away. It’s often super fun and creatively stimulating, but sometimes it’s hard to stay inspired and motivated when you’re sitting at home looking at the Instagram accounts […]

Wardrobe: Tropical Paradise

Wardrobe: Tropical Paradise

It’s not a great time to be shopping for beautiful summer clothing here in South Africa. The stores are all trying to offload the last of their winter stuff before bringing in their summer stock, so everything is maroon and mustard and nothing is even remotely tropical.

The Last Minute Bali Body Plan

The Last Minute Bali Body Plan

With 25 days to go until I was supposed to board a plane to Bali, I realised that instead of feeling excited about the holiday, I was feeling anxious. Anxious because I haven’t been working out. Because I’ve been consuming hundreds of thousands of calories a week. Because I’ve been drinking beer and wine every […]

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 […]
