I used to listen LOVE Melktert Kommissie when I was younger and it made me so happy to see their new song on my @SpotifySA Release Radar this morning. Dankie, @DieMelkterte! youtube.com/watch?v=Z0qRI4…

My Superbalist Black Friday Wishlist

If you know me, you’ll know there are few things I love more than a good sale. In fact, my surname should have been Anja van Zyl. That’s how much I love it. (Can you make a dad joke if you’re a 28-year-old woman? It appears that the answer is yes.) A few years ago Black Friday, which falls on 29 November this year, was only a thing you saw in American movies, but it has since gained popularity in South Africa with retailers offering big discounts in-store and online. If you’re an introvert like me, I’m sure the thought of going in-store on Black Friday horrifies you, which is why it’s so great that we live in the time of...

Bold brows, smokey eyes & ’60s glam with Almay

The older I get, the more I care about my brows. When I was younger, my brows were younger too. They were young, wild and free. Fast forward 10 years and now my brows, much like me, like to party every now and then, but ultimately what makes them the happiest is staying home and watching Netflix whilst eating avo on toast. Okay, maybe that's more me than them. But still, my brows have evolved with time and so have my makeup needs. I now find myself toning down the rest of my makeup to let my brows do the talking, and sometimes it's the only thing I have time for in the mornings before heading out for work. As a...

How I Take Care Of My Hair

“Anja, how did your hair grow so quickly?” is a question I get asked on social media so frequently. I wish I could tell you that there is some magic solution to hair growth, that I have discovered a tablet or supplement that made my hair grow fast. I know that is what you’d like to hear. However, it takes a lot of patience, and truthfully there is no exact science. I’ve met women who haven’t been able to grow their hair out past shoulder length, and then I have met people who have standing appointments at the hair salon to prevent looking like they howl at the moon at midnight. It is unfair that the latter usually happens to men...

The Baths in Citrusdal: A Review

The Cederberg is filled with magnificent getaway spots for every kind of traveller. I have done camping at Beaverlac, glamping at Wolfkop and most recently; a luxurious 2-night stay at The Baths. Best weekend. A post shared by Anja Wintour (@anjawintour) on Jan 29, 2017 at 8:56am PST If you’re looking for an easy, peaceful and affordable getaway from the city - Wolfkop is the spot for you. All the tents come pre-packed with everything you need (including some crickets and spiders), all you need to bring is food and clothes. By day you can rent canoes and swim in the river and at night you can rest in absolute bliss, there is no music allowed here and by 22:00 everyone is...

2018 Met Gala Red Carpet Rant

I haven't done a Red Carpet Rant in almost a year, and the reason for this is twofold: 1. I have an office job and it's difficult for me to write reactive content. Usually, by the time I get around to viewing red carpet photos, it's too late for a post. 2. Like most things, Twitter has spoilt this for me by being offended by EVERYTHING. I actually had to take precious time out of my life last year to explain the definition of satire to people. In case any of you still don't know, here you go. Satire: a way of criticizing people or ideas in a humorous way. This comes directly from the Cambridge Dictionary. If you still don't understand the meaning, here's another definition: Sometimes we can laugh at stuff without...
