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 […]

Exploring The Robertson Wine Valley

Exploring The Robertson Wine Valley

Thanks to my love of fine wine, I’ve spent A LOT of time exploring Stellenbosch and Franschhoek, two of the Western Cape’s beautiful wine regions. Tasting my way through some of South Africa’s best wine farms is one of my favourite ways to spend time, and a couple of weeks ago I had the opportunity to do just […]

My Top 5 Travel Reads

My Top 5 Travel Reads

How often do you actually have time to sit down and read a book? I’m guessing not that often. At home I try to make as much time as possible to read, but it feels like there’s always something else that I need to do. So on holiday, I tend to motor through books. There’s […]

I’m in Bali

I’m in Bali

After more than 40 hours in transit, including an Uber ride, two 10 hour flights, a night at the Airport Hotel in Doha, a very short stay in a hotel in Seminyak, Bali, several taxi rides, 2 hours on a boat, a terrible sunburn, and one ride in a horse-drawn carriage, we are finally on […]

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. Although, I have managed to find one or […]

A taste of The Orient in Pretoria

A taste of The Orient in Pretoria

I am all about birthdays. But not just my own – I really enjoy celebrating and spoiling the people I love and birthdays present the perfect opportunity to do just this. So when I found out that my dad was going to be away for work on my mom’s birthday, and that she’d be alone at […]

VIDEO: The One & Only Le Saint Géran

VIDEO: The One & Only Le Saint Géran

While the rain is pouring down in Cape Town today, I’m watching this video thinking about this time a month ago, when I was soaking up the sun on beautiful Mauritius. I went to stay at the magical One & Only Le Saint Géran for a few nights and absolutely fell in love. Watching this […]

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 […]
