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

To celebrate the launch of  its high winter collection – Fall for Winter, Zando is giving one lucky thediscerningstylist reader a R500 voucher. The Fall for Winter collection boasts a militant inspired edge, curated to bring out the bold and celebrate the cold with its varied stylish pieces. The collection relies heavily on natural architectural balance provided by the shoot landscape. “Structural minimalism with a naturally lush setting established the perfect foundation for our Winter 2016 shoot. The texturally rich backdrop lent itself to each trend without disruption, enabling each look to

Last week Friday, I was one of  four  lucky KFM listeners to be treated to a free wash and blow wave at Salon Sanz, courtesy of the Sechaba G show. I had taken the day off  work and almost didn’t make it to the salon because I was feeling ill but being the tough cookie that I am, I summoned the energy and drove to the salon – which was just about 50kms away – and I’m glad I did. The salon itself wasn’t anything particularly glamorous but the staff were lovely

South Africa’s leading health and beauty retailer Clicks gears up for another scent filled season in the fourth annual Clicks Fragrance Awards. Clicks stocks a wide range of fragrances at affordable prices making it your feel good, one stop fragrance destination. With such an extensive variety, it is only fitting that the process to narrow down the selection was just as intense. The first step involved the experienced fragrance buying team first making their selection before handing the judging over to our carefully selected media and influencers. Clicks designated an

I’ve been wearing make-up since I was 13 years old but didn’t know much about primers until a few years ago. However, I am no expert. I got curious about primers because I like to know what’s hot and happening in the beauty world. If something is supposed to help enhance your look, you better believe I know about it. I may not do everything I hear about but I am “in the know” ;). Primers are quite frankly a must if you work over nine hours a day and

The Kiss

I’d heard about Lush from other bloggers on Instagram but not one to give in to hypes, I  only popped in store for the first time EVER this week – just in time for Valentine’s Day. I am what one can term a lover of all things womanly. If it makes you look or smell good, I’ll buy it! So you can imagine how I felt when I walked into Lush at The Waterfront this Wednesday. Kid at a candy store is an understatement in describing how I felt, perhaps Alice in

Cavalli

No not Roberto Cavalli, hopefully some day soon – Cavalli Stud Farm . The only adjective I can think of to describe this venue is quite simply, exquisite! The landscape is just glorious and the only place that completely impresses me on the scale of Cavalli is Delaire Graff. Although, having been to both venues an equal number of times, the jury is still out on which of the two I prefer. At the moment, I am more inclined to say I favour Cavalli over Delaire Graff but only because of the shop
