Winter Getaways: Travel Africa with Rovos Rail

I was fortunate enough to experience one of Rovos Rail’s tour packages this past weekend, and – without prompt or obligation – I can give Rovos a firm 9/10 for their Pretoria to Cape Town trip. I can simply describe it as a world of 5-star luxury in motion, and it’s why Rovos Rail Tours is often…

Cycling Rules!

As you’ve probably gleamed from my post about hiking, I really don’t like exercise and I definitely haven’t warmed to the idea of a repeat hiking expedition. So my friend Liezel decided to try a new angle for getting me active, and? It worked! Now, I am not ready to brave the rough and rocky…

Outfit of the Day: A Twist of Lime

It’s Friday BITCHES! I bet you are so amped to do God-knows-what this weekend, so let me drop a little inspiration your way today. It’s Day 4 of my daily #OOTD posts, and I decided to immerse you in unapologetic fierceness. But first…today’s location. We are doing Clifton 3 Beach. Cape Town has a beach to…

Outfit of the Day: The Stepford Wife

You bet your shapely derriere I can pull off The Stepford Wife look. …well a modern re-imagined version atleast. This isn’t a styled up photoshoot look. I would wear this any day my good people. Today I’m taking you to: The 12 Apostles Hotel‘s Leopard Bar on the fringes of Cape Town. The hotel is an award-winning 5-star boutique…

Profile: Coast & Koi Decadence

A serendipitous find online – while in eager search of some undiscovered fashion designer gold – I came across Coast & Koi shoes. I clicked on the website link, and was redirected to a catalog of some of thee most luxurious handmade shoes I’d ever seen. I was eager to meet the designer, one Caryn…

When your Neighbourhood is just so good

I’ve been hearing about the famed Neighbourgoods Market for ages, from friends, and social media alike. I woke up totally tired today, but strong-armed myself into getting up, and experiencing this ‘wonder’ of hipster proportions. Since I live in the vicinity, the logistics of savoring the Cape Town Saturday ambiance weren’t strenuous at all. The…

The gangs all back together

I recently moved back to Cape Town, South Africa, and have been reconnecting with friends and acquaintances. My buddies and I decided to make a day of it. Lemme tell you: anytime this unholy triumvirate head out, things never go entirely to plan; our stories usually end with a 2-day bender in the city. We…

What’s for Lunch: Yours Truly

While unashamedly marinating in the stereotype of a graduate spending hours on end parked in some dingy lit corner cafe, mainlining coffee and searching for jobs online, I decided to spend the last of my hoarded survival money on a hearty and healthy lunch. I usually pass by this shop whenever I roam Long Street,…

Stepping about in Woodstock

I’m a fan of taking long walks into unfamiliar territory purely for the purpose of sight-seeing and rediscovering a forgotten landscape. So I got on a train, took a 30min+ train ride, and spent the day in another corner of Cape Town …and now you get to see the amateur photography I used to capture…

I got my dream camera

You guys remember my Birthday Dream List right? Well, one of the things that was on there was a camcorder and a new camera. Well, I’ve been working tirelessly for 2 months and I finally got enough scraped together to get myself one of my dreams. Many people have recommended different places to buy cameras….

Editorial – Feral Goddess: The Elemental Divine

I, honestly, have the luck of the devil when I go on shopping expeditions. Earlier on in the year I was at my usual haunt MilQ & Honey scouting out new items to drool over and spend my grocery money on. In the same clothing vault was fashion and commercial photographer Jürgen Knoth, and his girlfriend, scientist…

A night out: Exhibit B

So I just got back from a lovely event. It was held at the Side Street Studios in Woodstock, Cape Town. My bud Max Mogale was the one that invited me and I’m glad I went. 8 exhibitionists and lovely installations. Whilst I heard “art exhibition””and dressed in reserved grandeur, when I arrived it was to a more…
