Winter at Tintswalo Atlantic

Moody skies, the wild gray Atlantic ocean crashing at my feet, the smell of salt heavy in the winter air, a cold wind whipping wet hair across my face, a fireplace crackling in the corner. This is what my winter dreams are made of. The only thing that could improve the scenario would be a […]

My Hair Secret: Clipin Hair

Over the past 18 months, my hair has been through a lot. It’s been dark and very blonde and several shades of pink…and everything in between. It’s been bleached and colour treated and heat styled pretty relentlessly. I like experimenting, what can I say? My stylist (ask for Carlos, at Scar) is incredible and he […]
