How to make the most of a Garden Route Holiday

A holiday, already? Wow, Anja. It's February. Calm down. But you guys, March and April are coming. And with all those public holidays - it's basically like a second December. And if you're like me and you had to be online over the Festive Season, now's the time to take a proper break! J-P and I absolutely love the East Coast, and last year we went to Jeffrey's Bay for Easter and in December we went to Port Elizabeth for a week. I find everything about the trip up charming, from stopping at little farm stalls in Robertson to finding a Wimpy in the most obscure little towns. (I love Wimpy. Don't judge me.) But what I love the most, is the Garden...

Things That Make Me Happy

I think we're all pretty well acquainted with the things that make me sad. So I've decided to write an article about the things that make me happy. 1.The smell of a braai on a summer's night I live for going to the beach, having a sunkissed skin and wearing sundresses. But my absolute favourite part about summer is that lekker smell of braai that fills the air at dusk. 2. Dogs Dogs make everything better in life. I hate going to the petrol station, so I used to take my Jack Russell with me just to make the trip better. 10/10 would recommend. Unfortunately I can't have a dog at my flat, but I am a problem-solver and that's why I like to go to the...

Downtown Scene

Last weekend I asked photographer, Andy Pearce, to meet me at Beijing Opera for a photoshoot. I felt really hip about my location choice until I arrived there and realised that what I thought was Beijing Opera, was in fact a place called San Julian. I'm just going to be honest here: I am not familiar with either of these places, because I am eternally uncool. Anyway, it turned out to be an awesome location and the perfect place to achieve my favourite aesthetic of all time, the I-look-like-I'm-in-America-but-I'm-actually-not. Gotta fake it, 'til you make it - right? When I first started doing fashion posts back in the day, I would've NEVER felt comfortable enough to shoot with a guy. But after shooting with Vaughn Wright,...

Living Healthier

I know, I know. This is something you never expected to read on my blog. But hear me out. It's no secret that 2016 took its toll on me in terms of health. Some of it I am not quite ready to write about, and some of it I wrote about openly. By the end of 2016 I knew that I had to make major changes to improve not only my physical health, but also my mental health. My physical health Now let me tell you something about me that you've probably already guessed: I am the least sporty human being you will ever meet. No, really. I'm even worse than that other person you just thought of. In high school I was forced...
