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...

What To Expect From Dating A Surfer

Growing up, I spent almost every weekend on the West Coast in Yzerfontein. I absolutely love the ocean and a great chunk of my childhood was spent either swimming in the deathly cold waters of the West Coast, building sand castles, catching klipvissies or as I grew older - tanning and reading on the beach. I am a summer baby through and through. There is no place I am happier than by the ocean. Imagine my joy when I discovered that the guy I was into surfs and is always keen to take me to the beach...

27 Things About Me

I am turning 27 today, so I have decided to tell you 27 things about me. Some of this I may have told you already - forgive my memory. I am an old woman now. 1. I only started liking avo a month ago I always thought it was just expensive snot. 2. I am an introvert I wrote about being an INFJ a few years ago. Apparently, one's personality can actually change as you mature, and it is possible to go from being an extrovert to being an introvert, and vice versa. I am still 100% an introvert. The only thing that makes me happier than having no plans, is having cancelled plans. 3. I once got a stitch from eating too much pizza My whole...
