Ya, me too. Last Saturday Nash, Mellon and I went to Makro to shop […]

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 […]

I think I’m becoming a shoe girl

I think I’m becoming a shoe girl

I’ve never really cared for shoes. I haven’t ever wanted to spend copious amounts of money on them. Or cared if someone stood on them at a bar. 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 […]

              Me. Without a GHD. On the way to the airport for a week in Joburg, I got a sick, empty feeling right in the pit of my stomach. You know the one… your entire tummy feels ice cold and like it just dropped in turbulence. Winding along the coastal road toward the airport, eyes […]

Its here! Its here! My NoMu Poster is here!

A new month, the possibility of a new life. Imagine this: A life of eating and drinking for free all over Cape Town. Breakfasts and dinners and #realbeer and shooters. A life of guest lists for you and your friends at your favourite club. VIP at gigs and “meet the band”. Having your hair done […]
