Chic Jozi – Your guide to shopping, fun and fabulousity

I was so excited when I first heard about this book – Chic Jozi. Let me start by saying, I’m a big fan of books that have the inside scoop and little secrets on how to live a fabulous lifestyle, be it fashion, style or beauty. I can spend hours reading these types of books again and again, because they make me feel fabulous and inspired – Just like a good book should!


And Chic Jozi is no different. When I received a copy of Chic Jozi from the fabulous team over at Penguin Books, I was really excited to see that a book like this had finally been written locally. Now, although I’m a Durban girl, shopping in Jozi is far more realistic than scouring the streets of London or New York with the information from the fashionable guides that are available. In fact, after reading only a few pages of Chic Jozi, I wanted to jump on the next plane to the City of Gold, armed with credit cards and a pair of comfortable shoes, with the intention to shop till I dropped!

Inside this stylish looking little book, (little as in it can literally fit into your handbag), you’ll find the golden secrets to shopping fabulousity in the City of Gold. From store guides, to restaurants and hot spots, this little pink and black gem has it all. The Author, Nikki Temken not only puts all the info into a neat and practical guide, but also shares the inside scoop on sales and other helpful shopping tips, to help you make the most of your shopping spree in Jozi.

Chic Jozi comes just in time when we can expect hundreds of travellers from all over the world for the much anticipated 2010 FIFA World Cup. Chic Jozi also makes an ideal stocking stuffer for all your fabulous gal-pals this festive season. At only R130 (suggested retail price) per book, why not get each of them a copy and start mapping out your shopping and partying route of Jozi the Chic way?

PS – We also spotted our very own Style Candy Columnist, Friends with Jenny mentioned in the book 🙂
