I’m getting excited for Christmas time! The family get togethers, the chillaxing by the pool, the Christmas Markets… Ohh the Christmas Markets – there are so many fabulous markets planned this year, that I thought I’d share the low down on 5 of Jozi’s Christmas Markets that are worth checking out…View Post
The other day, we drove past the beautiful Turkish Mosque in Midrand and it looked so pretty on the outside, we decided to take a chance and see if could go inside. What we discovered was even more magnificent than we could have ever imagined! It was like we had stepped into a whole new world!View Post
Safari’s out in Africa are my favourite! I am a total bush baby and would quite easily trade a tropical paradise getaway for some bush time!
Having gone on a few epic Safari’s, I’ve learnt a lot that has helped me “get ready” for the next one! -October I’m counting down the days-.
Every time I travel, I always write a list of things to remember! Things like “bring extra mozzi spray – you will need it” and “don’t forget to pack a pair of boots next time” help when I’m packing or planning my next trip.
In this case, my next safari!View Post
I recently had a lovely little break in my old city, Durban. While I was there, soaking in the winter sunshine – (yep, like true Joburger’s we spent most of our time at the beach – in winter noggal) – it reminded me of how amazing Durbs is. Having lived there for 10 years as a local, I had forgotten what made Durban such a gem! Granted, when you live somewhere, going on holiday to the same place is a totally different experience. So, it was nice to Do Durban firstly as an adult (without parents on holiday, where you can do your own thing) and secondly as a holiday maker with nothing on the agenda. If you find yourself in Durbs, here’s my little travel guide on what you should include on your holiday fun… DO: The Beach Of course! Durban has the best beaches in South Africa, and I’m not just saying that because I used to live there! While I wont deny that Cape Town has beautiful beaches, the freezing Atlantic Ocean on that side of the country (plus the wind almost all the dang time) kinda puts me off going to the beach in Cape Town.…View Post
I love reading 24 hour city guides. I like to see what others would get up to if they had only 24 hours, because I think it highlights their best parts of a city.
Although my recent visit to Prague was for 3 days, bear in mind that this was a business trip, so a lot of the time our schedule was packed with interviews, launches and store visits. But, I did manage to experience a full day of exploring before jetting back to SA – as well a few sights sneaked in between the agenda.
If you’re planning a trip to the kingdom of Bohemia, then here’s a few of my travel tips…View Post
When was the last time you jumped in your car and drove? No plans, no map and no idea where you’re headed? Those “let’s see where the open road takes us” opportunities are rare, but when they happen, that’s when you find the best best kept secrets! I spent last week, just like that. Driving around in the new Ford Mustang, with no set plan and just seeing where the road leads. One of those roads (and there were many), led me to the coolest retro styled Roadhouse, where I found the best milkshakes in Jozi. Growing up in the 90’s, we didn’t have drive through fast food joints and Roadhouses were all the rage. They were also the place to go if you wanted a thick and delicious shake to wash down a seriously loaded burger, or an oozing toasted cheese. Ya know, the ones wrapped in paper with a little gherkin on top? I miss those days! So what an awesome throwback it was to find Kota Joe Roadhouse and get a blast from the past – but this time, in a true American Muscle Car. Back in the day, our parents (or grandparents for some of you) must’ve gotten quite…View Post
I’ve just returned from T-H-E most amazing, 3 day trip in beautiful Prague and can’t get over the beauty and charm of this magical, fairy tale like city of contrasts. I was there attending #BataFashionWeekend, as Prague is the home town of the 123 year old Bata shoe brand. In the coming weeks, I’ll have more content on the fashion show; with an insight into what you can expect to see from Bata (exciting things to come), as well more travel content, but for today, I wanted to take you along, on a walk through Old Town Prague with me…View Post
If you yearn for a little French flair; the taste of perfectly crisp croissants, marvellous macaroons or mouth watering eclairs, you’ll be happy to know that a trip to France is not the only way to get your fix!View Post
People often complain that Jozi is the concrete jungle and besides going out to dinner, there isn’t much to do in Gauteng. Sure we’re not blessed with sandy beaches, but blue skies, wonderful waters and outdoor adventures are all around us! You just have to step out of your suit and tie every once in a while to experience all the glory that Gauteng has to offer! If you’ve never made the trip up the Hartbeespoort Cableway, do yourself a favour and tick this mesmerizing must-see adventure off your bucket list! I promise you, you will not regret it!View Post
Going to see the Jacarandas in full bloom in Cullinan has been something I’ve wanted to do for ages. Last year, we attempted to go and see them, but I think we might have been a bit too late as they had already finished blooming in November. This year though, I wasn’t about to let them get away from me.View Post
If you’re planning a little bush getaway this summer, or anytime really, I’ve nailed down a few of my best “On-Landy” beauty essentials that are perfect to take along with you on your game drive experience.View Post
