Reunion Island From The Sky (Shot On The DJI Spark)

I’ve wanted a drone since DJI first changed the world of aerial photography with their Phantom. But I just couldn’t justify the price of a big drone when I knew that I was most likely not going to lug it around in its own special backpack – especially when I’m already lugging around a DSLR and […]

I’m a planner – especially when it comes to travelling to new destinations. I love researching the best restaurants, neighbourhoods and things to do before I visit as much as I love discovering hidden alleyways and local favourites once I’ve arrived.

You might remember that a couple of months ago I shared my favourite hair secret right here on this very blog. For the past 6 months, I’ve been wearing clip-in hair extensions to give my hair length and volume – and help me keep my hands off my hair while I try to let it grow […]

What to Pack for Paris

What to Pack for Paris

Join the Sugarbird Fynbos Gin Movement

I’m a big fan of crowdfunding culture. I think it’s a really great way to get behind something or be part of a cool project you admire, even if you’ve got your hands full with projects of your own. It’s always special to know that you were an early supporter of something like the production […]

How To Survive A Long Layover

How To Survive A Long Layover

As South Africans, we’ve probably all experienced that torture of a looong layover at least once. Flying through Dubai, Abu Dabi or Doha (our gateways to the world) means that more often than not, you’re likely to spend a couple of hours wandering around like a zombie, spraying perfume all over yourself, spending a couple […]

The Ultimate Girl’s Guide to 10 Days in Iceland

The Ultimate Girl’s Guide to 10 Days in Iceland

Three girls, one car and over 3000 kilometers of open road. In March of 2017, I hit the Iceland Ring Road with two of my best girl friends for the road trip of a lifetime. Along the way, Camilla, Misha and I went inside one of Europe’s oldest glaciers, got misty-eyed at some of Iceland’s most […]
