• Cape Town Must Do: Babylonstoren

    I’ve said it before- writing about travel on this blog is a way for me to relive that trip or experience, so I like saving my favourites because I know that once the post is published I’m letting go of it in a way. I spent about a week in Cape Town last month (which(…)

  • Oral B Pro Expert Review

    Hello everyone! I hope you all had a good week. On my side, I seem to have caught an INSEAD bug that’s going around, so I’m feeling a bit under the weather. I’m taking it easy this morning ahead of a BIG weekend, the Grand Prix is happening all weekend in Singapore- with performances by(…)

  • Tintswalo Atlantic: An Exclusive Cape Town Retreat

    Hello there! I have a whole stack of blog posts waiting to be written, but things have picked up pace over in Singapore and all of a sudden, I’m left with very little time. Having come from a Finance background, I may have underestimated the amount of work this MBA involves. A lot of it(…)

  • The INSEAD MBA: Week 1

    Hello hello! Since my last post, things have picked up a lot. Last week was completely consuming- socially, mentally, physically. I had no time to even think about anything else. I’m not quite sure how to start telling you about it… so maybe I’ll start at the beginning. The first few days were all about getting(…)

A home away from home in Durban

A home away from home in Durban

It’s been close to 2 months since we moved out of our home, and since then we’ve been living out of bags, moving from one hotel to the next. My focus is luxury travel, and after a while 5 star chain hotels just turn into a blur. I know exactly what to expect, and nothing really(…)

The perfect weekend getaway at Oaklands Country Manor in Drakensberg

The perfect weekend getaway at Oaklands Country Manor in Drakensberg

On 99% of my travels, my expectations are either met or the experience is below my expectations. Oaklands is probably the first place I’ve been to in ages that has exceeded my expectations to this extent. It’s easy to review super luxurious places that I’d never be able to afford in my personal capacity and(…)

How To Travel With A Man: The Guide For The Girl Who Wants To Do Everything

How To Travel With A Man: The Guide For The Girl Who Wants To Do Everything

Writing this post has been on my mind for years, but it took a very long time for me to perfect the art of Travelling With A Man. When I first met my husband, he thought that travelling was a waste of time and money and he had zero inclination to travel. Very quickly, the travel(…)

Jozi’s New Mexican Hotspot: Perron in Illovo

Jozi’s New Mexican Hotspot: Perron in Illovo

Hello hello! Apologies for being so quiet, I’ve been living in a bubble that has been far away from reality. I got back from Europe yesterday and had to deal with my inbox, plus tons of admin ahead of our move to Singapore. There’s so much to do, but I’m loving not being at work(…)

The Most Authentic Cape Malay Koeksisters You’ll Find Outside of CT

The Most Authentic Cape Malay Koeksisters You’ll Find Outside of CT

Hello hello! I’m writing from my sister’s place, our temporary home. We arrived back from the US this morning and while we were coming “home”, it didn’t quite feel like that. I guess that’s cos we don’t have our own home in JHB anymore. It feels like we’re just passing through, which we are, I(…)

Top 5 “Coffices” in Jozi

Top 5 “Coffices” in Jozi

When I used to work (seems like a million years ago), all I ever wanted was to be able to work from home. Or in my case, a coffee shop. I love being out and about, and the idea of working around other people, in a nice environment was just a dream to me. One(…)

Rustic French Cuisine at Les Delices de France

Rustic French Cuisine at Les Delices de France

Know when you walk into a restaurant and immediately feel welcomed? It might have been the “bonjour” I got on arrival, but there’s something unpretentious, authentic and utterly charming about Les Delices de France. Admittedly, I don’t venture to the West Rand very often, but my meal at this restaurant definitely made the commute worth(…)

Review: Life Restaurant at Waterfall Corner

Review: Life Restaurant at Waterfall Corner

I’m no stranger to Life- I frequent the Hyde Park branch, always ordering the same thing (the prawn pizza- I love it!) I almost didn’t review the Waterfall restaurant at all because the menu is the same as that of Hyde Park’s, but I’m so glad I did because it has a completely different vibe.(…)

Do this next weekend in Jozi: Inner City Graffiti Tour with Past Experiences

Do this next weekend in Jozi: Inner City Graffiti Tour with Past Experiences

Over the past few years. I’ve loved getting to know Joburg’s inner city, an area that was “off-limits” to me for so long. However, I have to admit that I did this on my terms- on a touristy inner city bus or in food markets bustling with visitors, as opposed to residents, and within somewhat(…)

Settling into Singapore

Settling into Singapore

Hello everyone! See, I told you I wouldn’t abandon you once arriving in Singapore. Thanks so much to everyone who sent me messages to see how we were doing. Honestly, it hasn’t been smooth sailing. Let me tell you, the idea of moving across the world is a lot more exciting in theory than reality.(…)

Reflections on 2 months of travel, and a farewell letter to Joburg

Reflections on 2 months of travel, and a farewell letter to Joburg

Hello everyone! I haven’t had much time to really focus on the blog. I’m writing from the Slow Lounge at OR Tambo (I wish I could just move in here- I LOVE this place.) Our flight is delayed for an hour and a half- I’m secretly glad because I really wanted to write this post(…)
