Lamu, Kenya

Pole-Pole ~ slowly slowy,  are the first words that come to mind when describing Lamu and its people.  A slowness and stillness that is not idle, but enchanting in it’s peacefulness. A truly humbling travel experience. Travelling in Africa is one of my current personal goals, so upon a conversation I had with a friend … Continue Reading

African Paradise.

Set on Manda Island, The Majlis resort was our home for the trip … Continue Reading

Spier Free Time : An ode to farmstyle elegance.

Spier’s magic lies its celebration for slow living. The whole property operates as a self-sustaining organism which is never over indulgent, but delicate in its pursuit to give you just the right amount of everything you need.  An ode to farmstyle elegance. In April, my dear friend, Lulama and I were treated to a weekend … Continue Reading

Saturdays in Joburg.

“Running through the six with my woes” is the most apt description of my saturdays spent with my friends, Lulama and Yoliswa. I’m not a huge Drake fan, but what Drake describes as  ‘woes’ calls for a moment : “Woe is my crew. It stands for ‘working on excellence.’ It’s just my whole brand and … Continue Reading

Gaansbaai NYE

I know I don’t only speak for myself when I say New Years Eve is overrated. It’s always just too predictable. Don’t know if I’m just getting old, or if the night has lost its ‘cool’ – verdict is still out. This year, my boyfriend, two friends and I decided to go to Gaansbaai for … Continue Reading

I remember the first time I tasted honest chocolate and just couldn’t understand how it could be soo good. Visiting the Cafe has always been on my to do list and honestly, it was perfect. I love the unassuming chicness … Continue Reading

Exploring the Capital of Good Food.1

Cape Town is undeniably the capital of good food and I’ve had so much ‘Fomo’ for all the new restaurants popping up all around town. Bree street has quickly become the go to place for gourmet eating experiences lined up all in one place for your convenience. So in a recent visit to Cape Town I … Continue Reading

Mexico : Playa del Carmen

Playa del Carmen is the ‘Cape Town’ of Mexico. It’s far out of Mexico City ( Joburg of Mexico) with a ‘long street’ called 5th Avenue, and thousands of tourists, beautiful hotels, gorgeous beaches,  good restaurants and many shopping stores. With that said, if I were to rate the ‘authenticity’ of our trip to Mexico … Continue Reading

CUBA: Part 2

I would be lying if I said our trip to Cuba was all round perfect, because it simply wasn’t. From arriving at the Cuban airport and waiting an hour for our luggage we already knew this was going to be quite the trip. As the cab from the airport pulled into our hotel (which I … Continue Reading

CUBA : Part 1

Cuba had always been on my radar of places I wanted to visit. So when my cousin asked me if I wanted to go, it was an absolute no brainer. Our trip was nothing short of amazing, filled with tons of laughter, many culture shocks, being hustled everyday and gaining a new perspective on Cuba’s … Continue Reading
