    Heard of Microblading? Well I gave it a bash & (spoiler alert) I love the results!

Heard of Microblading? Well I gave it a bash & (spoiler alert) I love the results!

Strong eyebrows have very much been a vibe in the beauty industry over the past couple of years, but even before they became “on trend” I’d been wanting to pump mine up a little to better frame my face.  I had heard about microblading, but thought it sounded super scary, so never seriously looked […]

The show, which has been written by Mike van Graan, is a follow up to the very successful “Pay Back The Curry”.  In fact, […]

Travel Thursdays: Greece Part 1 – Athens

So my bestie Kim and I recently did a little trip through Greece (with a small stopover in Sorrento, Italy).  I personally like escaping at least a part of the cold winter months, so you’ll typically find me fleeing Cape Town around June/July/August.  For this trip we left Cape Town on Sat, 22 Jul & […]

    Ever considered having a tattoo removed? The guys at No regrets will sort you out

Ever considered having a tattoo removed? The guys at No regrets will sort you out

So about two years ago I had two small wrist tattoos done. On my left wrist (just a simple little heart on the inside of my wrist) and on my right wrist/hand – 6 little flying birds.

Overall I really love my tattoos, there was just a problem with bird number 6.  You see on […]

    Zenzero gets a sexy new look and a fresh new authentic Italian menu

Zenzero gets a sexy new look and a fresh new authentic Italian menu

Zenzero has always been a top option for me as far as the Camps Bay strip goes. The last meal I had there (albeit a couple of years ago) was fantastic… but due to my constant quest for “the next big thing”, I often find myself in a position where I don’t get a chance to […]

Travel Thursdays: Mauritius – part 1: Where did I stay & how did I get there

Back in January of this year (yes yes, it’s taken me this bloody long to write about it), I did a sneaky little 7 night trip to Mauritius.  Why Mauritius?  Well I didn’t have a lot of days to play with, therefore didn’t want to spend too much time travelling.  I also really just […]
