Whimsical

Look at me keeping my promise to blog more! This look was shot ages ago with photographer, Zel Archer, and make-up artist, Cat Terblanche. I meant to upload it sooner, but then life happened. BUT HERE IT IS! YAY! I’m wearing a whimsical tulle skirt by local designer, Olga-Maré. This skirt made me feel like I was 6 and 26 at the same time. It’s so gorgeous. I teamed it with a crisp white shirt from the Woolworths David Jones collection, which I have fallen in love with. I bought a few David Jones pieces at the beginning of winter and I’m so happy with the quality and aesthetic of it. I finished the look off with jewellery from Black Betty and...

A Life Update

This weekend I looked at my blog and felt so guilty that I haven't written anything since 24 May. Sies man, Anja. Your Wordpress theme was kak expensive and you need to use it. Where have I been? I realised that I have explained it on every single social network except on my blog. So I have decided to give you guys a life update. If you've been following all my tweets - please feel free to click away, because this might be a bit repetitive for you. If not; read on. At the beginning of 2017 I vowed to be brave and reach for my dreams. Just kidding, this isn't Pinterest. Let me rephrase: At the beginning of 2017 I vowed to...

Coffee Date

I can't believe that I went through 22 years without coffee. At school I used to pull my nose up at it - only drinking a cup every now and then in winter. During my varsity years I started buying coffee at the cafeteria to fuel me after late nights working on projects, or partying. But even then it wasn't really because I liked the taste - just because I needed the kick.   Then I started working in the CBD, and House of Machines was just across the road from my office. And with that the coffee addiction started.   My mom and I recently went to Pretoria to visit my family, and I made her stop at coffee shops every morning so...

Restaurant review: CHEFS

Last Friday night I had the honour of visiting CHEFS in Gardens. When reviewing a restaurant, I always feel that I need to address the pros and cons to keep it real. But I truly didn't have any cons to add to this article, because I loved absolutely everything about it - from the venue, to the aesthetic, to the food. So what is CHEFS about? CHEFS opened end of last year in Cape Town. You may have driven past it on St Johns Street and seen the team prepping their daily menu. This is the first interesting thing about CHEFS: they have a new menu everyday. Every morning three meal options are set out for the day and loaded onto the CHEFS website www.chefscapetown.co.za. Often Chef...
