My Ultimate Carry-On Packing Guide

My Ultimate Carry-On Packing Guide

I really respect people who can travel with just a carry-on, but I am not one of them! Even just a weekend up to see my folks involves checked-in luggage, hand luggage and a handbag. I’m not a light packer. And when it comes to long-haul travel, I’m even worse! I blame my heavy-handed packing […]

What to Pack for 36 Hours in New York

What to Pack for 36 Hours in New York

If you grew up watching Sex & The City like I did, you’d be forgiven for believing everyone in New York to be impossibly stylish, waltzing the streets in sky-high heels and tutus. If you grew up watching Girls like I also did, you’d be forgiven for believing everyone in New York to dress kind of […]

What to Shop for at Sephora: The Cult Must-Have Products

What to Shop for at Sephora: The Cult Must-Have Products

I’m not really a big one for shopping when I travel. I honestly plan so much of my trips around eating that there’s hardly any time (or tbh, money) left for shopping. But if there’s one store I always make sure to visit between gaining 10-15 kg’s, it’s Sephora. The holy grail of beauty shopping, […]

5 Tips for buying the Perfect Pair of Jeans

5 Tips for buying the Perfect Pair of Jeans

I know I don’t need to explain to any girl out there how hard it can be to find the perfect pair of jeans. I’ve literally been reduced to tears trying on jeans and ended up leaving the store a sweaty, emotional mess. But over the years (and maybe as I draw nearer to 30) […]

What to Pack for a Road Trip in South Africa

What to Pack for a Road Trip in South Africa

With thousands of kilometres of (relatively) well-maintained roads, beautiful landscapes, diverse scenery and idyllic towns, South Africa is the road tripper’s dream destination. It’s hard to decide which part of South Africa is best for road trips, and that depends on what experiences you’re after and what kind of landscape you love. I love mixing […]

15 One-Piece Swimsuits You Need This Summer

15 One-Piece Swimsuits You Need This Summer

I personally love a one-piece swimsuit. And not just because I’ve given my life over to carbs. I just really love the look (a kind-of mysterious sexiness) and I think one-pieces are far more comfortable than bikinis. People often ask me where I shop my cute one-piece suits, and this year we’re all in luck […]

What to Pack for Summer in Cape Town

What to Pack for Summer in Cape Town

The weather in Cape Town is, in a word, unpredictable. Which makes packing for your first visit kind of confusing. Add to that the fact that many visitors think it’s not-stop safari as soon as they land and you’ve got way too much khaki and not nearly enough cute dresses on your hands. The reality […]

Hair Makeover: easihair pro and scar

Hair Makeover: easihair pro and scar

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 […]
