Tintswalo at Waterfall

This year I’ve focused a lot on travel, and I don’t only mean international travel. As much as I love exploring the overseas countries, we have some amazing gems right here in South Africa as well! I am exploring our beautiful country bit by bit, and of the most recent finds for me was the beautiful Tintswalo at Waterfall hotel. I got to spend a night there last month after first visiting it for dinner back in May. If you are looking for a weekend getaway that’s not too far from the city, then look no further than Tintswalo. Even though it’s located at the heart of Johannesburg’s northern suburbs (and just a five minute drive from the Mall of Africa), while you are there it feels like you are isolated from the busy…

Outfit Of The Day- A Day In Cape Town

There is quite nothing like Mr. Price when it comes to hot fashion. I have been wearing their clothes since I can even remember, and while I don’t base my entire wardrobe from there, I have a lot of things that came from good old MRP. I especially love it for the seasons trendy fashion items- sometimes you are not sure if the trend is going to stick or not, but you still want to play with it without spending a fortune- that’s when I turn to Mr. Price. They always have trendy stock and just last week I found this faux fur gillet and fell in love! Last week Thursday I flew down to Cape Town for the day with MAC- it was tones of fun, although those day trips are always a…

Outfit Of The Day- Young, Wild, Free

I am very lucky that I can easily pack and leave for the weekend- I have a stable cat and home sitter, and often something comes up and I pack my bags and I go. I don’t have to take leave off work, leave the kids with anyone or even drop the dogs off at a doggy hotel. I don’t know for how much longer this nomad lifestyle is going to continue(probably once I am done with studies this year, it will be done), but I love being young and free right now. So over the long weekend, we packed our bags and headed for a little getaway to Bela-Bela. Sun, the bush and animals is the perfect Saturday afternoon!   Being in a place with no reception, there really isn’t anything to do…

Outfit Of The Day – Blue Skies and High Teas

      Happy Saturday guys! I love these summer weekends- pool, friends and sunshine is all I need to be happy. As I mentioned previously Steve and I got to stay at 54 on Bath recently, and with me being a huge lover of high teas, we had to have one while there. Recently Revlon spoiled me with a super-fun personalized press drop, which included a box of macaroons and a voucher for a Royal High Tea Experience at 54 on Bath, because Revlon heard how much I enjoy both of these things. I was excited to try it out, because I haven't ticked 54 on Bath of my “High Tea Experince” list yet. The tea is served from 15:30 until 17:00 and it is not buffet like most of the other High…

Lifestyle- 54 On Bath

  Recently Steve and I got to stay at the luxurious 54 on Bath Hotel in Rosebank thanks to the lovely people over at Phatic Communications. At the recent River Island launch a 2-night stay at the hotel was up for grabs and I won! I have loved 54 on Bath ever since I visited the Level Four Restaurant, and it so happened that I already had a voucher to enjoy a High Tea there courtesy of Revlon (review and pics coming tomorrow!). We wanted to have a little stay-cation right before the holidays, so we booked our 2 night stay a week before Christmas and off we went.
