• Learn to Make Pasta From Scratch with Angela Day

    To me, the words “cooking” and “fun” have always been mutually exclusive.  Words that come to mind when I think of “cooking” are “disaster”, “waste of time” and “washing up.” However, I find that I can only eat out 3-4 times a week before I start running out of options and would rather have something(…)

  • The Winter Sculpture Fair is Here!

    The Winter Sculpture Fair was one of my favourite events in Jozi last year, and I’m so excited that it will be happening once more this year. Imagine food and wine produced by 28 of Franschhoek’s most popular restaurants, producers and wineries, all in a beautiful setting, just an hour from Jozi. We spent the entire(…)

  • A 5 star Pilanesberg Getaway at Shepherd’s Tree Game Lodge

    I’ve done the whole Kruger thing a few times, and while it is great, I think many people aren’t aware that you can get just as good a big 5 experience in Pilanesberg, which is only 2 hours away from Jozi. Also, 5 star in Pilanesberg is WAY cheaper than 5 star Kruger. Late last(…)

  • The Event Everyone’s Talking About- Woolworths Style By Night

    It’s not often that I do follow up blog posts about events- but this one was too amazing not to. Last night, Woolies launched their Winter 2014 collection with their first Style By Night event, held at a venue I love- Turbine Hall. I think the bar was set when we got sent invites saying(…)

3 Reasons to Stay at Suncoast Towers Next Time You’re in Durban

3 Reasons to Stay at Suncoast Towers Next Time You’re in Durban

A few weekends ago, I flew up to Durban for one of my closest friend’s weddings. I was hosted at the 5 star Suncoast Towers in Durban and I just fell in love with it. It’s super luxurious without being huge and impersonal. Here are 3 reasons I think it’s awesome. 1. Location Situated in(…)

A Photo Essay: Kerala- God’s Own Country

A Photo Essay: Kerala- God’s Own Country

Having visited the Golden Triangle (Delhi, Agra, Jaipur) a few years ago, I was so struck by India that I was determined to go back. I specifically wanted to visit South India- Kerala in particular. I had heard beautiful things about it. I like busy cities, but I also like to chill, so I made(…)

India: First Impressions, plus 5 Unmissable Foodie Experiences in Mumbai

India: First Impressions, plus 5 Unmissable Foodie Experiences in Mumbai

My dear blog, how I’ve missed you! I didn’t plan on taking this long a break, but as most of you will know, I was in India over December, visiting Mumbai, Chennai and Kerala, and when I got back to work most of our team was on leave so I was really busy, with my(…)

3 days of touring Paris like a rockstar!*

3 days of touring Paris like a rockstar!*

I know, I’m a really bad travel blogger for only blogging about a trip 4 months after I’ve returned, but I was waiting for my story on Paris to be published in the Sunday Indy first before I covered it here (ok, that happened about 2 months ago…) and I’ve also needed to wait until(…)

The Best Pizza Ever at YOLO in Melville

The Best Pizza Ever at YOLO in Melville

I’m worried that I’m going to start losing credibility soon, because whenever I discover a new pizza place, it replaces my previous fav pizza spot and the heading of my blog post is always something along the lines of my “the best pizza”, or my “new favourite pizza”. So, my favourite pizza used to be(…)

The best croissants in Jozi (and quite possibly the world)

The best croissants in Jozi (and quite possibly the world)

  Happy Monday friends! I hope you all had a great weekend. I did a restaurant review at Thunder Gun  (best ribs ever, go there), lunched at Park Cafe (delish salads, my favourite part of which is the torn Italian bread served on the side), and had dinner at Wolfpack last night. Full blog posts(…)

A New Italian Gem in Melville: La Luna

A New Italian Gem in Melville: La Luna

Now that my mother lives in Melville, I’ve been spending a lot of time there, which inspired me to write a story in the Sunday Independent all about my favourite spots in this once grungy, now trendy suburb. Judging from my tweets, alot of you still avoid it. If you’re one of those people, I(…)

The Best Ice Cream of My Life – at the Smokehouse in Braamfontein

The Best Ice Cream of My Life – at the Smokehouse in Braamfontein

I’m ashamed to say that this past weekend was the first time I’ve ever been to Braamfontein at night. I often go to pick up takeaways during my lunch break, and of course I’ve been to Neighbourgoods plenty of times, but I’m always wary of driving into town at night. It’s such a stupid notion,(…)

How I Raised a Million Rand to Fund my MBA

How I Raised a Million Rand to Fund my MBA

I’ve had so many messages of support from readers and friends throughout this MBA process and I appreciate all of it so much. Now, it’s pretty much official. I’ve resigned, paid the MBA deposit, sold my flat and am well on my way to beginning this journey. We’re selling everything in our current home, check(…)

Win! A hamper of French champagne worth more than R1000

I hope that by now, you all know about the Celebration of Bubbles Festival happening this weekend, which I gave away tickets to a few weeks back. Sadly (not really), I’ll be in the air, flying to Hong Kong for a very exciting project with Club Med that I’ll tell you all about soon, so(…)

Win! 2 tickets to “With My Girls”- the perfect Mother’s Day Treat, worth R760!

As my regular readers will know, I lost my dad about 6 months ago, and earlier this year, my mom moved from PE to JHB. I was SO excited to have her close by, and imagined her being my plus 1 to events, plus having her join me to do my nails and my hair(…)
