So this year has been a pretty exciting one hair wise, and that’s all thanks to the incredible Gilbert Mofubelu from Hair By Gilbert. He’s taken me from drab brunette to balayage queen and now I simply don’t know how I will ever live without him in my life. 🙂

My amazing hair transformation thanks to Hair By Gilbert

Gilbert Mofubelu has been my amazing hair stylist since 2014 when I first met him over at Spoilt Hair for a hair makeover feature for Cape Town My Love.

I fell in love instantly, not just because he’s an absolute magician when it comes to colour and sexy cuts, but also because he’s simply just […]

My review of the new look Heavenly Spa at The Westin

The Heavenly Spa (located on the 19th floor of The Westin Cape Town) has been one of my favourites for quite some time now.

It simply can’t be beat if you’re looking for some blissful pampering with a kick-ass view…

But, they’ve recently undergone a little bit of a revamp & I paid them a visit just […]

    All about my sexy hair makeover thanks to Spoilt Hair & Nails

All about my sexy hair makeover thanks to Spoilt Hair & Nails

Now when it comes to my hair, I’ve been suuuuper boring the last few years.  I’m basically a hairdresser’s nightmare…. I go in, ask for the most basic trim possible, and I run out the door.  I don’t even stick around for a blow-dry or anything…

Sure I went through that period after finishing high […]
