While I was in Durban during the December holidays last year, I had to pop around town and see what’s been happening and what the new hotspots are. My mom knowing me so well and how much I love to stuff my face and enjoy good ambience suggested I check a new restaurant close by home in the Highway Area, Kloof called 1904 Bistro Américain – a new restaurant and bar that just opened in the neighbourhood, that I predict will so become a crowd favourite.
In 2014 I decided to do the ‘big chop’ which was a very scary and daunting experience for me, but I just had to do it for myself. I needed change and an uplifting one – transitioning from one hair type to another one.
When it was finally done, I immediately thought, okay now what… How do I maintain and look after this new hairdo? What are the next steps to dealing with my new texture of hair? My hair was no longer relaxed and smooth but it was coarse and super coiled.

Since I moved to Cape Town I have had some of the best experiences – I discovered a new love for different cuisines. The city is filled with cafes, restaurants and bars for every mood and occasion. In the one year that I have officially lived in the city, I’ve continuously been finding new places that make me even more obsessed with this second home of mine. One of my goals for the blog this year and myself is to eat, travel and write more. So I will be sharing and documenting my travels and food experiences with you all. Let’s do this!
Early 2000s was the era of tracksuits with celeb stars like Paris Hilton and Kimora Lee Simmons seen rocking the fashion trend. The style has officially made a comeback as athleisure-wear with fashionistas wearing sweatpants and tracksuits at many occasions making it the new streetwear chic. Personally if I could, I would totally be wearing a pair joggers or tracksuit pants everyday! They are the ultimate answer to comfortability.
My current favourite tracksuit that I’ll probably be seen in this entire winter season is from Mr. Price. I was particularly drawn to this tracksuit by its colour and wide arm design on the tracksuit top. The tracksuit is from the Project collection that was recently launched by Mr. Price and it features a collection of fun, sporty and casual items.

It has been a refreshing and loving skin relationship with my beloved Celltone products for the past month or so.

While it is still Summer in the beautiful city that is Cape Town, I plan to make the most of it and soak up the delicious sunshine. And what better way to strut the streets of Cape Town, but in a chic slip dress. The uniquely designed slip dress from Phoebe&Knox has definitely become one my favourite dresses at the moment. The dress is such a great fit, with material that is so comforting to the body.
When it does get too hot this is when we thank the heavens for the modern day style of slip dresses. Just to clarify for those who may not be 100% sure, slip dresses were originally worn as an under clothing garment to prevent the showing of intimate garments. However, now days most skirts and dresses come with lining underneath that it is not necessary for a person to wear a silky slip dress underneath their clothes. Instead it has now become norm for us to rock the dresses as a fashion expression.
Often we are so concerned about keeping our skin, hair and body looking top shape, that we may forget that our hands and nails need the exact same tender, loving, care. Your hands and nails need to be taken care of at all times, especially because you do everything with your hands.
Since you can’t avoid the fact that people will see your hands whether you like it or not, here are some important and great nail care tips to help you take good care of your hands and nails.
