Cape Town foodie escapades: Bertus Basson Restaurant Review

If you’ve ever done any research on what to get up to when you’re still in South Africa’s Western Cape province, but not in the bustling metropolis that is Cape Town, you’ll have come across The Spice Route. The Spice Route is a modern twist to the historical pattern of awaiting seasonal cross-continental trading of old. The…

Travel South Africa: Escape to Val du Charron

Only thing better than sleeping? Waking up to a spectacular view. The Val du Charron Olive and Wine Estate is less than an hours drive from Cape Town, and is hidden 10 kilometers from a small town called Wellington. This town – no bigger than other well-known South African historical towns like King Williams Town…

Cape Town foodie escapades: Makaron Restaurant Review

Following 2-hour traffic delays during my roadtrip, sweltering Cape Town heat – and amid my taking in the vivid wonder of Majeka House’s luxury hotel suites – I had to placate my rumbling tummy. Majeka House & Spa is a boutique hotel nestled in the  leafy green suburb of Stellenbosch’s Paradyskloof. One experiences an idyllic…

Travel South Africa: Escape to Majeka House

Let us veer a little away from the ocean side with my next travel escapade, and into the lush green landscape of Western Cape’s more mountain-side luxury escapes. Conveniently situated along the Cape Wine Route (and under an hours drive from Cape Town), the gorgeous and eclectic, owner-managed Majeka House, is a luxurious pocket of paradise – whether…

Travel South Africa: Escape to the White House Beach Villa

It is 2017 people! Forgo the sticky, heated hustle-and-bustle of city life, and all those predictable travel destinations, for something different (read: amazing). Retreat from the post-festive season sadness and genuine January/February funk, by escaping to a luxurious South African beach destination in Yzerfontein, called The White House Beach Villa. The white shingle-clad, three-storey abode on the…

Cape Town foodie escapades: Dalliance Restaurant Review

So I get a lovely invite in my mailbox, welcoming me to come dine in the newly revamped urban eatery Dalliance Restaurant & Bar – located within the ‘gold mile’ of Victoria & Alfred Waterfront, in Cape Town. I eagerly accepted the gracious invite to a place I dismissed entering before, due to the assumption…

Lexus South African Menswear Week: The blasé nod to 2017 style

I think designers understand menswear better this year. While theatricality plays its part during fashion week, it is functionality and fresh design that provide the bottom line after the shows end, most of the time. I think they’re getting it hey! 2017 collections gave the most blasé of nods as an ode to 2016 fashion…

Cape Town foodie escapades: Dapper Coffee Co. Review

I’m sure you’ve seen my foodie escapades focused more on nightlife dining, but I like to switch it up. Today’s Cape Town foodie escapade took me for a lunch break at the corner of Strand & Bree Street, in the Cape Town central business district. Attracting the gaze of any passer-by, is a counterpoised establishment,…

Why my blogger social media will stay unrefined

“Its better for you to keep your Instagram clean.” “Make it professional and crisp because that’s what brands want” “You want more followers right?” Listen boo boo kitty’s! Your advice about how I can “get more followers”, “be a better fashion blogger”, or whatever other goal you think I aspire to achieve, is for naught….

2017! Year of epic #BodyPositivity

It started with a beat – No, for real! Dancing around in my room, feeling good while jamming out, is somewhat cathartic, and ups my self-confidence tremendously. Maybe, it’s the rise in endorphin’s, or just a really good song, but I truly delved into where I stood with body positivity at the end of 2016….

Cool Summer Style: Body Positive Athleisure

Another day. Another Look. I think I’ve held you captive enough with my images these past 2 days, but herein lies the final of my Body Positive Athleisure series. I’ve had summer sun with my mustard yellow Puma Clyde’s, the futuristic calm of Puma & UEG, and now we have the coolness of a duplex….

Futuristic Summer Style: Body Positive Athleisure

Day 2 of my Body Positive Athleisure series, and I’m bringing you Futuristic summer style. To me, being #BodyPositive means I am actively looking for an array of ways I can feel good in & about my body. I’m trying hard not to skinny-shame folks; or get touchy when I subjectively look at & overhear someone whom…
