Being In My Late Twenties

I turn 27 on 11 April. Recently, while I was on holiday in the Cederberg, a boy kept calling me “Tannie”. These days I get more wedding invites than Facebook friend requests. Every now and then I discover a rogue grey hair and I convince myself it is just a very special highlight. I am officially in my late twenties. This is a very interesting period in my life, because I am just as much a giant child as I am a responsible adult. I find my shopping cart filled with veggies and sugar-free products, but also viennas and Rainbow Crunchies. These days I'd rather spend money on Beroccas than Bacardis, and I absolutely detest wasting a day because I drank the...

How To Go To New York

I have been putting this article off for weeks. Partially because I haven’t had the time, but mainly because I didn’t want to look at my New York photos again. I enjoyed my trip so much that my photos make me sad. Yes, I know. That makes no sense. I decided to title this blog “How To Go To New York” because a lot of you asked me about my flights and accommodation. I also wanted to prove that New York is not as unattainable for South Africans as we may think. If New York is on your bucket list, I really hope this article will help you to get there in 2018! How to get your visa Everyone told me scary stories...

WIN a Trip To London Fashion Week Festival

What would you say if I told you that you and I could be going to London Fashion Week Festival together next year? That's right. An all expenses paid trip to London. But wait, I'm getting ahead of myself. You may have noticed that the beautiful Enhle Mbali has been rocking the same outfit to different events. This is one of the bravest moves in the industry, as outfit repeating is considered a fashion felony. Together with Skip, Enhle made a powerful statement that resonates with women living with real budgets; that you can repeat and be stylish. Skip’s new advanced liquid mix is intelligently designed to care for your clothes. It penetrates deep into the heart of fibres; providing superior stain removal...

Celebrating Two Years with JP

Two years ago I made the decision to pack my bags in Die Paarl, and move to Cape Town. After looking for 2 months, I FINALLY found a teeny tiny flatlet in Sea Point. The flat was essentially just a big room - it didn’t even have a kitchen. But that tiny room was the beginning of something great. The flat, okay let’s call it a room, was attached to the landlords’ penthouse. A very kind Jewish couple who invited me over for dinner all the time. During one of my first dinners at their house, a young guy showed up to fix their Internet and the Wi-Fi in my room. I spoke to this guy very briefly, so briefly that...

5 Beauty Products I Am Loving At The Moment

 Morgan Taylor Things I despise: Waiting for my nails to dry. (More on this later.) Chipped nail polish. Having to soak my nails for 26 years to remove glitter nail polish. (And considering amputation.) So this polish by Morgan Taylor (named Ice Queen Maybe) is right up my alley, because it dries very quickly. And when it chips - it's not very obvious, because the colour blends so well with your natural nail. Moreover, even though it's a shimmery - it doesn't stick to your nail and the polish is so easy to remove. All of their shades are beautiful though, and they're also available in minis. So cute! Shop them on Zando here. Aloe Unique Gel Mask I was introduced to Aloe Unique in...
