They say your hair is your crowning glory, this I know to be true. It is why issues like receding hairline and thinning hair can be distressing and even depressing for many women. Receding hairline is not as common in women as it is in men but traction alopecia is. What is traction alopecia? It is damage to the hair caused by excessive pulling on the natural hair follicle. Ballerinas, gymnasts and weave wearers are some of the women that suffer from this condition. In my early twenties, I used

Over the past few months, beauty has become a little obsession of mine.  I am constantly on the hunt for the best beauty products out there. I have always had a love for all things beauty related but the fact that I’ll soon be turning 30 years old has got me a little spooked and concerned for the future of my skin. While I may not be able to turn back the hands of time and stay in my twenties forever, I can at least try to reduce the signs of

I always say that there is no shortage of fun things to do in the winelands. I had the pleasure of attending the Winelands Chocolate Festival at Blaauwklippen Wine Estate in Stellenbosch on 20 August 2016. The show consisted of delectable chocolate, wine tastings and a fashion show. Anyone who knows anything about me knows I love chocolate, wine and fashion, duh!  So, this festival was something I had to witness with my own two eyes and taste with my very own tongue. I knew I had to get my

In my previous post I share details of my experience at Salon 58 Awaken Grace. Today’s post is a continuation but here I’m sharing what I wore and what I often think of before choosing an outfit for an occasion. Deciding on what to wear can be very challenging for men and women. ‘What to wear?’ is a question we commonly ask ourselves and others when choosing an outfit for work, gym or even just to go to the shops. Since what I wear plays a role in how confident I

Jackie Burger’s Salon 58 I had the privilege of attending my first ever Jackie Burger soiree, an event that took place last week Saturday, 13 August 2016 at the P.J Olivier Art Centre. The theme for the show was Awaken Grace in celebration of Women’s Month. Jackie Burger is a South African style icon, she was an editor at Elle magazine and holds a lot of clout in the South African fashion industry – she is sort of like the Anna Wintour of South Africa except she is much more experimental in

Sweaters are the easiest and most comfortable way of dressing warm this winter. The weather has been pretty mild, not too cold for winter, so you can get away with wearing two layers underneath your sweater without much need for a coat. A sweater can be worn in multiple ways and for multiple occasions. It’s easy for many of us to complain and say “I have nothing to wear” – it usually isn’t true. There is plenty to wear, the styling inspiration is often what’s lacking. Sweaters are no longer

One of the things I love about living in the Western Cape is the plethora of wine farms and restaurants. I love food and enjoy eating out, I grew up with my parents celebrating every single thing with dinner at a restaurant so now, I celebrate being alive at a restaurant. Every weekend, I try to make a point of eating at a restaurant I’ve never been to in parts of the winelands like Stellenbosch, Paarl and Franschhoek. On this particular day, I felt like a drive to the beautiful
