Wordly Classics to Shake Things Up

Wordly Classics to Shake Things Up

Looking for a reason to get out and be glam this winter? Well ladies, I have just the treat for you! Did you know that InterContinental have launched a bespoke selection of both alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages? Together with renowned mixologist, Nick Braun, prepare to experience Worldly Classics Cocktails at their very best! Each cocktail has been designed and refined with its own unique twist to bring you classic cocktails that capture the glamour and romance of luxury travel. To give you a little taste of what you can expect, here’s a sneak at Seven InterContinental Worldly Classics Cocktails that feature on their bar menus in South Africa and across the world; Martini – A legacy cocktail with an air of refined panache, it should be stirred, never shaken, to retain its clarity and composure. After all it is suave and debonair, crisp and dry. Negroni – This iconic aperitivo is the very definition of balance and simplicity. It’s sweet yet bitter and most certainly timeless, and still served the way Mr Negroni intended. Caiprinha – Made from a raw sugarcane spirit that once sparked a revolution. Traditionally flavoured with muddled limes, it’s potent, light and refreshing. Hemingway – Created at El Floridita, Cuba, in honour of…

Stylish, Wireless Earphones

Stylish, Wireless Earphones

If you love music as much as I do, you no doubt want a pair of headphones that will be music to your ears. Nothing is worse than crackly sound, or earphones that feel uncomfortable – that’s why I’ve been loving both pairs of my Sudio Sweden headphones so much – and for different reasons. Stick around as today I’m going to tell you more about why I love them, PLUS I’ve  got a special discount coupon for all my lovely readers, so that you can enjoy 15% off the retail price (for a limited time). Sudio is a brand of high quality earphones designed in Stockholm. They provide crystal clear sound and look super sleek and stylish, whether you’re wearing them at the gym or on the street. They are really well made; minimalistic yet stylish, practical yet functional, with high quality details and finishing that make them the earphones to have! For me, I like to have both On-Ear and In-Ear headphones. On-Ear for using at home, watching Youtube or when I travel, and In-Ear to keep in my handbag for those “I wish I had music” situations and when I’m working out. Sudio’s On-Ear headphones are called REGENT (currently R2 250 – less…

Yummy Winter Food from Woolies

Yummy Winter Food from Woolies

There’s something to be said about winter and good food! The two just go hand in hand, which is why I love a little chilly season indulgence (we can work it off in summer okay). I got to sample some of the new season treats from Woolies (always a fave place to shop for the yummiest treats) and wanted to give you gals the inside scoop on what you should be adding to your trolley this season. Rusks Rusks are always a winter winner! Who doesn’t love dunking a yummy rusk into coffee or tea first thing in the morning? I sure do! Be sure to lookout for two new Rusk variants at Woolworths; My favourite, The Waffle Rusk – baked in waffle pans, dipped in syrup and dried to make the perfect dunk worthy rusk and The No Added Sugar Ayrshire Buttermilk Rusk which is made using sucralose and the sweetness of Ayrshire Buttermilk. All of the yumminess with none of the calories. Also, if you’re not into overly sweet treats, then this is a must for you! Coffee So many yummy flavours of coffee on offer at Woolworths. Be sure to try their new lineup; Organic Ground Coffee Blend, a 100% Arabica coffee that’s…

Mustangs & Milkshakes

Mustangs & Milkshakes

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…

Turbocharge Your Energy Levels with Turbovite

Turbocharge Your Energy Levels with Turbovite

ENERGY! Ahh if only I had more! It’s amazing how as a kid, the new year would often bring with it a clean slate – a chance to go into January with some sort of magical boost. Call me a nerd, but I used to be super amped the day before school started! I had my shiny new stationary, my scuff-free school shoes and my neatly covered, fresh notebooks ready to go, but most of all, I had so, so much energy!
