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...

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...
