Why Fashion Matters Okay so maybe fashion is the last thing on your mind during this global crisis but a little retail therapy might be just the thing to lift your spirits. We need a whole of positivity and some inspiration right now. Our president, Cyril Ramaphosa just announced mere hours ago that the number of people infected with the Coronavirus (Covid-19) has doubled. It went up to 116 confirmed cases! But we all need to live our lives – in isolation or not – and what better way to

Developing Sustainable Fashion Businesses at AFI  Fashion Week 2020 This year’s AFI Fashion Week is about developing sustainable fashion businesses. Did you know that the global apparel market is valued at over 3 trillion dollars?! Yup, it accounts for 2 per cent of the world’s Gross Domestic Product (GDP). Sadly, it also generates 4% of the world’s waste each year. About 92 million tons to be exact. Sustainability is very important to me. It is why as a fashion blogger, I feel that it is my responsibility to show you

Who knew SA Menswear Week isn’t just for men?! I sure didn’t. Although it is a platform dedicated to the development and promotion of menswear within the African continent, it is open to everyone. This two-day fashion show took place at the V&A Waterfront in Cape Town on 6 February and ended on 8 February 2020. I must admit, even though I’m a fashion blogger, I don’t always know about some of these local fashion shows. And I wouldn’t have known about this one if not for a friend telling

First nutricosmetic restaurant of its kind, ERTH, opened its doors to the public late last year. I was one of the lucky few invited to the media launch. Situated on 35 Main Road, Green Point Cape Town, ERTH falls under the Skin Co. brand. The restaurant combines health and skincare with a menu designed with ingredients that promote healthy radiance from within. Incorporated in the foods are four ingestible cosmetic ingredients. They are;  Hyaluronic Acid, Collagen (using fish-based peptides), Resveratrol and potent Phyto Ceramides – all of which have countless

With Valentine’s Day but a day away, it got me thinking… I have been single every Valentine’s Day for the past three, maybe even four years. Not that the day is particularly significant to me because even in a relationship, I don’t make a big hoo-ha of the day. But short of writing another article on how to enjoy Valentine’s Day as a single woman, or how to turn your Valentine’s into Galentine’s, I thought I’d switch it up a bit.  Because some of us are single for various reasons,

Flared jeans used to be all the rage in the 70s, fast forward five decades later and it’s making a comeback in 2020. There’s a strong 70s movement on the runway and celebrities like Margot Robbie, Harry Styles and Penelope Cruz have been seen rocking this 1970s hippie trend. Denim jeans have always been on-trend, it’s the style of jeans that has changed over the years. From low-rise, baggy, bootcut, skinny, high waist to mom jeans, the list goes on and now it seems like a fair few of us

It’s a new year and if you’re like me, one of your goals this year is to give your skin the nourishment it deserves to keep it looking ageless. Having weekly facials isn’t just costly but it’s also time-consuming and let’s be real, unrealistic for most of us hardworking folks. To save myself some time and money, I invested in beauty gadgets that’ll help my skin feel soft and smooth to the touch while also giving me a youthful glow. From pore vacuuming devices to LED lights that kill bacteria

I’ve always had a thing for sunglasses. I have about 30 pairs of sunglasses, maybe more – and that’s not counting the ones I just recently gave away. To me, sunglasses are the ultimate accessory.  They can transform your look and elevate your style. I have some designer sunglasses and some not-so-designer. If I’m being honest, probably 25 of the 30 pair of sunglasses I own are regular/schmegular. Ain’t nobody got money to spend thousands on sunglasses. A pair or two from Mr Price or as the posh people call

Are dark underarms getting you down? Same. I’ve had dark underarms my whole life but it’s not really bothered me until recently. As a style and beauty blogger, I’m often filming, shooting different looks and I find myself feeling self-conscious when my arms are raised. With pictures, I can always use Photoshop to lighten my underarms, but with videos, there’s no covering it up. My underarms – which as a result of the dark tone – resembles a hairy armpit and is visible for all to see whenever my arms

You don’t have to be rich to look stylish, you only need to have good taste and or – in my case – be discerning. People have this misconception that to look stylish/expensive/boujee, you need to have lots of money but that isn’t true. You can be rich and not stylish. Conversely, you can be poor, or at least living on minimum wage and be stylish. Ever heard of the term “hobo chic”? Ha! It bears no relation to this but you get where I’m going with this, right? If
