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.

WIN: Your Dream Matric Dance Look With YDE and MAC

A girl’s Matric dance is a big deal. It’s normally the first time you’re really getting dressed up, going all out on your hair and makeup and getting to stay out way past your normal curfew. I went to my dance with a good friend and even though it was 10 years ago, I still […]

Taking Your Cellphone Photography to the Next Level

Let's be honest, everyone wants to know how they can take the most beautiful photos possible for Instagram. How to take better photos is one of the questions I get asked most frequently, and although my answer is normally to invest in a proper camera, that's not really realistic for people who aren't interested in […]

My Hair Secret: Clipin Hair

My Hair Secret: Clipin Hair

Over the past 18 months, my hair has been through a lot. It’s been dark and very blonde and several shades of pink…and everything in between. It’s been bleached and colour treated and heat styled pretty relentlessly. I like experimenting, what can I say? My stylist (ask for Carlos, at Scar) is incredible and he […]

My Cape Town Shopping Guide

My Cape Town Shopping Guide

Bali Packing Guide

Bali Packing Guide

Just because Bali is a hot, humid, tropical island, doesn’t mean you can’t still have fun with fashion while you drift between beach clubs, villa pools and nightlife.
