I have known many single women who feel a sense of shame for being single. This feeling of shame and inadequacy can be blamed on societal pressures especially within the African community. You are deemed less of a woman if you are not in a relationship. God forbid you are in your late twenties to early thirties and have no marriage prospects, then you need deliverance because clearly without a man, your life has no meaning. Well, I’m calling it bull shit! Times have changed, gone are the days when
Living alone, I think of all the friends I’ve known, but when I dial the telephone, nobody’s home. All by myself, don’t want to be, all by myself anymore. All by myself… If this song by Celine Dion from Bridget Jones’ diary resonates with you then I’d just like to say that you are not alone, I am here with you. See what I did there? Okay, I’ll stop quoting songs now and get to it. We’ve all grown up with the concept that the holidays is a time to
Last week, I was invited to the launch of Cloud 9 Boutique Hotel and Spa, the latest hot spot located in the trendy, vibrant and beautiful Kloof Nek Road in Cape Town. Cloud 9 is home to exquisitely refurbished luxury rooms, a premium day spa, a sun deck, hot tub, plunge pools and a lush rooftop bar with panoramic views. Originally a Victorian farmhouse dating back to 1892, Cloud 9 connects five buildings joined by a contemporary African art gallery and an intimate library. With 55 guest rooms and suites
What’s a girl to do when inspiration is lacking? It’s that time of the year where I’m just feeling burnt out and I can’t wait for the holidays. Waking up every morning to drive to work, which is 62kms away, by the way, is such a drag. What’s worse is, since it’s the end of the year, things are supposed to be quieting down but that doesn’t seem to be the case at work. I’m sure there are many of you that can relate – this post is for you.
A month ago, I received a media invite to the Bay Harbour Market in Hout Bay to “experience the vibrancy and creative spirit of Cape Town’s most vibrant market”, the invite said. Having never been to the market, my curiosity was piqued and I decided to RSVP to the event to see what it was all about. The Bay Harbour Market is located on the water’s edge in the old authentic part of the Hout Bay Harbour, in a refurbished fish factory. The market is an eclectic mix of fashion,
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
Let’s be honest, I am super lazy when it comes to exercising. Two of the reasons being I hate to sweat and another, I wear weaves. It’s difficult to wash your hair everyday when you wear a weave and you kind of have to if you exercise regularly because of all the sweat and dirt build up so I forgo exercise for the sake of my hair. Talk about crippling progress! That’s definitely going to change this year! Exercise will be part of my routine even if I have to
