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...

2017 Met Gala Red Carpet Rant

The 69th annual Met Ball was themed Rei Kawakubo/Commes des Garçons. Here's how I pronounced the latter the first time I read it: KOMMES DES GARKONS. Here's how you actually pronounce it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Moq_wBlimsI Cool, so now that we've established that I can never go to France, let's move on to the fashion of the night. Madonna Haai siestog, Madonna probably read "camouflage" instead of "comme de garcons". My gran's eyes also started deteriorating when she turned 80.

Breath Of Blue

At the beginning of this year I vowed to go back to doing all the things I love, and one of them is working with fellow creatives to make life more colourful. So I called up two of my favourite people in the industry for a photoshoot, and spoke to up-and-coming designer Janu Steyn about wearing one of his gowns. He gave me the most breathtaking royal blue gown with intricate detail across the chest and a line of buttons down the back. Zel Archer came onboard as photographer, and Cat Terblanche as hair-and-makeup artist. I’ve worked with them a lot in the past and I absolutely love their dynamic. They’re some of the kindest people I know, and together their presence is...
