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...

Everyone On Social Media

It's weird to think that I've been on Facebook since 2007. When I first joined Facebook, I was only allowed to check on it once a day because we had a 2GB capped line. That 2GB used to run out so quickly, which used to send my dad into a blind rage. Fast forward 10 years and nothing has really changed. I'm still running out of 2GB, only this time it's on my phone because data in South Africa is one of the biggest lies of our time and every service provider is part of the conspiracy. Years of being on social media - not only Facebook - have shown me that we're all pretty much the same human online. Here are some...

Love Local: My Journey With Mazee

There's something so rewarding about shopping local. I think for me, personally, it's because I love being a part of a journey. With big retailers you miss steps in their journey, but with local designers and entrepreneurs - you get to see everything. And when you finally purchase that product; it makes you feel like you've contributed to their success. That you've been there to cheer them on. That is how I feel about Mazee. I was first introduced to the brand in 2013 when I attended my very first blogging event. It was for The Organ Donor Foundation, and it was arranged by one of the biggest agencies in Cape Town. It was a very exciting night for me. Thanks...

A Life Update

This weekend I looked at my blog and felt so guilty that I haven't written anything since 24 May. Sies man, Anja. Your Wordpress theme was kak expensive and you need to use it. Where have I been? I realised that I have explained it on every single social network except on my blog. So I have decided to give you guys a life update. If you've been following all my tweets - please feel free to click away, because this might be a bit repetitive for you. If not; read on. At the beginning of 2017 I vowed to be brave and reach for my dreams. Just kidding, this isn't Pinterest. Let me rephrase: At the beginning of 2017 I vowed to...

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...
