• Next on my bucket list: Mexico!

    Now that I’ve been to most of places I always wanted to see in the US, I already have my eyes set on my next vacation in that vicinity. I have no idea when or how this will happen, but I’m super keen to go to Mexico. Mainly because I love Mexican food, but also(…)

  • 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

    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

    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(…)

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(…)

A Beginner’s Guide to Disney World

A Beginner’s Guide to Disney World

Hello everyone! I’m writing from high up in the air, en route to Vegas from a fab 2 days at Disney in Orlando. I felt this post was necessary ‘cos while there’s tons of info out on the net on what to do when you’re AT Disney, there’s not a whole lot available if you’re(…)

Club Med Bali Review

Club Med Bali Review

It feels strange to write about one holiday while I’m on another. I’m writing from Islamorada in Florida Keys at the moment, and while I normally don’t write on holiday, I’m going to be travelling for the next 6 weeks, so I need to pace myself and try and combine some of my normal life into(…)

People of Bali: A Photo Essay

Hello everyone! After studying finance for level 3 of the CFA exam non stop for the past month, I’m thrilled to be writing again- missed it so much. As of right now, I am currently LOVING my life. I’m sitting in a coffee shop at a corner table, working on my Mac- writing articles, researching(…)

Win! A luxe getaway for 2 at Valverde worth R2300

So Mother’s Day is coming up- I’m keen to know what you guys have planned! My mom has just moved back to PE- she wasn’t loving JHB, it was too busy and hectic for her, and she got very lonely. If she was around, I’d totes be keen on stealing this giveaway for myself Groupon(…)

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.(…)

Q&A With a Clairvoyant

Q&A With a Clairvoyant

Having a blog puts you out there. While this blog has brought me some amazing opportunities, I’ve also been criticized- it comes with the territory. One other thing that happens a lot is review requests. I’ve been asked to review an entire 5kg fish from a fishery, baby food, random guest lodges in the middle(…)

Funemployment- Here’s what I’ll be up to for the next 3 months, plus, the future of Jozilicious

I thought I would be really really excited as it got closer to my last day, but instead, I’m quite sad- about leaving the people, not the job. Spending 8 hours a day with the same people for 4 years is bound to build relationships, and I’m really going to miss the people I work(…)

Thoughts after working in corporate for 8 years

Thoughts after working in corporate for 8 years

This week is quite a significant one for me in the timeline of my adult life. It’s my last week at a company I’ve worked at for 4 years and it’s my first time taking time out from working after 8 years. I’ve been reflecting over my career and I wanted to document and share(…)

My top 10 favourite novels of all time

My top 10 favourite novels of all time

While I know it seems that I’m always out and about, I actually enjoy “quiet time” just as much. I never used to be this way. About 5 years ago, I constantly needed to be surrounded by people. I actually got anxious when I didn’t have plans, or had to be home alone. To solve(…)
