• Woodlands Spa in Muldersdrift- Relaunch

    Woodlands Centre for Conscious Living in Muldersdrift is one of my favourite spas- more for the location and aesthetic than anything else. I featured them in this post I wrote about my 5 favourite massages in Jozi. It’s situated on the banks of the Crocodile River (near Avianto), and the therapy rooms have glass walls(…)

  • Eating Cape Town: Brunch at Hemelhuijs

    Hello there! It’s been close to two weeks since I moved to Cape Town and I’m loving it! I somehow got really lucky in that I got a job at a company that is pretty much perfect for me, and I get to work in their Cape Town office while I wait for my UK(…)

  • Col’cacchio has a sweet Winter deal

    When I was overseas, I built up a wish list of food I had to eat while in SA. On that list: pasta at Franco’s, butter chicken at Currylicious, a chip roll from Fateema’s, and pizza from Col’cacchio. So when the latter’s PR got in touch with me and asked if I wanted to review their latest special,(…)

  • My INSEAD MBA Journey

    Since I started writing- first on this blog, and then professionally- I’ve realized that I find gratification not from the process of writing, but more from the result of the writing- whether its inspiring others, or making a difference in their lives- like giving a reader the extra push they needed to book a holiday,(…)

Jozi Winter Getaways

Jozi Winter Getaways

As much as I love Joburg, my usual weekend does tend to get a bit tired after a while. Admittedly, the concrete jungle doesn’t have much to offer outside of shopping or eating, but a short drive outside the city will find you at some of the country’s most beautiful destinations. Here are the top(…)

A weekend in Loire Valley

A weekend in Loire Valley

Hello there! I’ve just returned back to Fontainebleau after a fabulous weekend in the Loire Valley. It’s quite a mission to get to the airport from where I am, so we’ve been doing more road trips within France. It’s such a beautiful country and there’s lots to see, but I’m slowly making headway. This weekend(…)

Guest Post: Why You Should Visit Bhutan

Guest Post: Why You Should Visit Bhutan

Hi all! So my attempt at getting back into blogging was short-lived- because I’m now currently in the midst of recruiting and it’s really intense. Last week I had EIGHT interviews, and this week I have 4. I’ve been doing so much travelling so it’s unfortunate that I can’t share more with you.. but in(…)

Kuramathi Maldives- 5 star luxury at 4 star prices

Kuramathi Maldives- 5 star luxury at 4 star prices

Hello there! In my last post about Maldives, I told you about Kandolhu– a stunning 5 star resort. Today, I wanted to tell you about the other resort we experienced, Kuramathi. To be honest, I was quite grumpy when we arrived. Our flight landed at 11am, and we had to wait at the Male airport(…)

The best of New Zealand: how to see and do it all in 10 days!

Hello there! As promised, I’ve been trying to get back into blogging by letting go of some of my other commitments- and so far, so good! Today, I want to tell you about our trip to New Zealand. NZ is one of those places that is just so far away from anything, making it difficult(…)

Dim Sum Brunch at Mandarin Oriental

Dim Sum Brunch at Mandarin Oriental

In Singapore, brunching is huge, especially on the weekends. People tend to show up at around 11am, and enjoy Prosecco or Bloody Marys until 2pm or 3pm. Most brunch spots offer the usual- Eggs Benedict, Pancakes… you know the deal. Recently, Mandarin Oriental in Singapore invited me over to try their Dim Sum brunch at(…)

Jozi’s New Tapas Spot: Vicky Cristina’s

Jozi’s New Tapas Spot: Vicky Cristina’s

I know I know, Vicky Cristina’s isn’t still “new”, but there is a chance you may not have been there yet. If this is the case, go! I went during the day, and admittedly, the black and red decor does lend itself more to a nighttime ambiance. We tried a little bit of everything and(…)

Singapore Restaurant Chronicles- Finally, good wine that doesn’t break the bank!

Singapore Restaurant Chronicles- Finally, good wine that doesn’t break the bank!

Before the MBA got started officially, I had about 2 weeks to do restaurant reviews. I really thought that I’d continue reviewing restaurants at the same pace as I did back in SA, and was super excited about discovering a new country’s food. Now that I’ve settled into a routine, it isn’t quite working out(…)

Life in Fontainebleau

Life in Fontainebleau

I’ve been meaning to write this post pretty much since I arrived in France, which was 6 weeks ago. Can’t believe how fast the weeks are flying by. The reality that the MBA will soon come to an end is becoming horribly clear and I’m feeling really sad about it. I can’t tell you how(…)

The Equilibrium Centre in Saxonwold

The Equilibrium Centre in Saxonwold

Everyone has their own preference when it comes to exercise- some love escaping in the swimming pool, while others prefer road running. For some, more “low key” exercise hits the spot, where it’s as much about achieving mental stillness as it is about exercising the body. This is where yoga and pilates at the Equilibrium(…)

2 months in Singapore

2 months in Singapore

Hey hey I’m writing this post because I’m really in the mood to blog, which is the best time to write- not when you have to or need to. I actually miss being just a blogger and not a freelance writer, because back then, every single blog post was written with passion. Now, I simply don’t(…)
