Where To Stay When Visiting Mauritius

I was recently invited by World Leisure Holidays to visit Mauritius, and I got to see some of the most magnificent hotels on the island. I also saw some of the attractions, so I decided to do two articles about my trip to make sure you get the most out of your stay. Stay tuned for my article about some of the fun activities to do during your trip! During my visit to Mauritius I saw 4 resorts, all of which were absolutely breathtaking. But two of them stole my heart, and here’s why. La Pirogue Resort & Spa I felt at home at La Pirogue from the moment I lay eyes on the ‘hippy chic’ design. Maybe it’s because it somehow reminded...

Overrated Places In Cape Town

Living in Cape Town makes you obsessed with living in Cape Town. Seriously. Capetonians LOVE Cape Town. We love bragging about this place, and it’s easy to see why. Those Greenpoint nights. A photo posted by Anja Wintour (@anjawintour) on Aug 8, 2016 at 9:43am PDT But this is not another article about that. This is an article about something I have kept in my heart for a long time. There are certain places in Cape Town I’ve felt forced to like, because everyone likes it. Today I decided to tell you what I really think of these places. A certain shopping centre by the sea Few things have the power to make me hate my life as much as going to this shopping centre. I have...

Saldanha: A West Coast Gem

When I was invited to go to Saldanha by West Coast Way, I have to admit that I was like: Huh? What’s in Saldanha? I love the West Coast and I have spent most of my Decembers braving the cold waters of Yzerfontein. I’ve been to most places from Melkbos to Elands Bay, but for some odd reason I’ve never ventured into Saldanha. So when J-P and I arrived at Blue Bay Lodge on Friday, we were blown away by the INCREDIBLE view of Saldanha. Just look at this. It’s amazing when you’re proven wrong about your preconceived expectations of a place. We were checked into the honeymoon suite at the Blue Bay Lodge, which was built last year in December. The room...

10 Places I Want To Visit in South Africa

Yesterday I tweeted about wanting to visit Platbos in Rawsonville, and everyone loved the venue so much that I decided to compile a list of places I'd love to visit. We're so lucky to live in such a beautiful country! 1. Platbos Log Cabins, Rawsonville Capetonians, can you believe that this is just around the corner from us? "Situated in a magnificent secret valley on the slopes of the Slanghoek mountains, we offer three private and secluded self-catering wooden cabins overlooking the dam."  No noise pollution. No city lights. Just you and uninterrupted views of the mountains. Sign me up right now! Find more information about Platbos here. 2. De Hoop Nature Reserve I visited De Hoop Nature Reserve for one glorious day last year, and I vowed to go...

All about 91 Loop

If you want to see an epic debate, just ask any Capetonian what their favourite street is to party in the CBD. Is Harrington cooler than Long? Kloof trendier than Bree? It depends on who you ask. Personally I’d rather lick an ashtray than go out in Long Street, but that’s because I am actually a 70-year old in a 24-year-old’s body. Loop Street is filled with some of the coolest businesses in the city (okay, maybe I’m a bit biased because I used to work there). But for some reason, even though it’s wedged between Long and Bree Street, it doesn’t have that many places to jol. That’s why I jumped at the chance to visit 91 Loop. Well, that,...
