Afrikaburn…I’ll try my best to convey the magnitude of Awesomeness

Afrikaburn…I’ll try my best to convey the magnitude of Awesomeness

An arid, dry landscape completely ringed by mountains far in the distance and inhabited here and there by a few dry, grassy patches of foliage. A sprinkling of empty settlement houses. No water for […]

ABC Bootcamp is kicking my but into shape

ABC Bootcamp is kicking my but into shape

It’s not that I don’t enjoy working out. Ok, it is. I don’t enjoy working out. I know I have to work out, you know, for the purposes of better health and all-round body proportions, but I’ve always got to try convince myself that its actually somewhat enjoyable. That it’s not really painful and rather […]

Hannah Mermaid… I want to be you

Hannah Mermaid… I want to be you

When I was a little girl I used to take a pair of stockings and cut them in two. Then I would climb inside one leg and do dolphin stroke in the pool until my fingers were like raisins. Hannah Mermaid has taken my original prototype (that I neglected to trademark-I was 7) and turned […]

And even more than not caring about shoes…I’ve never dreamed about shoes. Well…until now. I found these girls a few weeks ago at ALDO and I haven’t been able […]

On the way back we stopped at Beta Beach which is apparently where all the cool people go beaching. Beatnik snapped these pretty pictures of us as we were riding along… Beatnik […]

Don’t Throw It Out: Swap It!

Don’t Throw It Out: Swap It!

Last year I hosted a Clothing Swap in Joburg, and it worked a treat! The idea is this: You bring all your old stuff that you no longer wear, and swap it for stuff other girls no longer wear. You could do it with accessories, hats, whatever! I’m looking to host one here in Cape […]
