Staying Inspired

Staying Inspired

Sometimes having a blog can get a little lonely and every now and then it can feel like you’re shouting into the wind, only to have your words blown away. It’s often super fun and creatively stimulating, but sometimes it’s hard to stay inspired and motivated when you’re sitting at home looking at the Instagram accounts […]

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 […]

The Last Minute Bali Body Plan

The Last Minute Bali Body Plan

With 25 days to go until I was supposed to board a plane to Bali, I realised that instead of feeling excited about the holiday, I was feeling anxious. Anxious because I haven’t been working out. Because I’ve been consuming hundreds of thousands of calories a week. Because I’ve been drinking beer and wine every […]

Girls Night In at Camps Bay Retreat

Girls Night In at Camps Bay Retreat

Is there anything more luxurious than a night of face masks, hair masks, wine and chocolate with a girlfriend? Well, the only thing I can think of that could possibly make this situation more luxe, is if it all went down at the beautiful Camps Bay Retreat. I was invited to visit the hotel, which is located […]

The Most Interesting People I Know Podcast

Ever since I first started listening to podcasts, I’ve wanted to have my own. But starting a podcast can be a lot like starting a blog ie. overwhelming. How do you decide on a theme? Is it going to be just you talking about your life, or are you going to be telling stories? Are […]

With my own podcast officially launching next week, I wanted to share the long list of podcasts I subscribe to. These are the podcasts that keep me company all day long, inspire me, teach me things I never thought to ask questions about and give me a constant stream of sentences starting with “I heard […]

The Most Interesting People I Know Podcast

The Most Interesting People I Know Podcast

It’s long been a dream of mine to have my own podcast. I’ve been thinking about launching one for years. I listen to so many every day, and you know, I love pushing myself. But it was hard to decide whether I’d be able to commit to it, what my subject matter would be, and […]

Investing in Art: Swain Hoogervorst

Investing in Art: Swain Hoogervorst

A few years ago, I decided that I wanted to start collecting as much art as I could afford by young artists I believe in, and talented people I know. Obviously I could never afford works by any of the more famous names, or the artists with the sold-out shows. But the guys who are young, who […]

A Weekend In Riebeek-Kasteel

A Weekend In Riebeek-Kasteel

Because I love what I do so much, it sometimes feels like I’m pretty much always working. I’m always taking pictures and Instagramming and Tweeting and writing blog posts and meeting people for work and having coffee dates for work and yes, even tasting wines for work. Sometimes I go away for work. Sometimes I […]

Giveaway: WIN a R1500 voucher from Volpes Linen

I have to admit that for me, one of the very best things about travelling, is coming home. Home is where your cats wake you up at 5am, where your bathroom has full-sized bottles of your shampoo and conditioner, where you have more than 3 pairs of shoes, where you can cook in your own […]
