It’s been a while since I’ve shared some love with you. To celebrate my birthday month, here are the bubbles I promised you in my previous post and something luxurious to make you feel yummy.

Taittinger South Africa is generously gifting you a bottle of Champagne Taittinger Brut Reserve, a bottle stopper, a keyring and a candle in an authentic Champagne bottle with the original label. I need to mention the candle’s authenticity as the ones you’ll find at Cavendish are MCC bottles and the labels are printed photos. No fakes allowed here.

Women’s Month 2018: Support small businesses with Word Power

August 1, 2018

I’d intended to commence Women’s Month with a fanfare of bubbles. Instead, I’ve been inspired to share this idea which I hope you’ll indulge me in. Don’t worry, the bubbles are coming.

I don’t know about you but I always feel pressured to do something amazing for Women’s Month. Last year, Grant Davison wrote a daily post about women who inspired him, and I’m humbled to say, I was featured too. Thank you, Mr G.

Then there are the companies who are supporting charities, Instagrammers are sharing personal battles they’ve overcome. Some women are even liberating themselves by going makeup free. Colour me vain or weak but I can’t just yet.

It’s all so overwhelming and intimidating, where does one begin?

Langaro Lifestyle Centre Winter 2018 Fashion Sale

July 5, 2018
Langaro Fashion Sale

I know, I know. I don’t deserve you. Here I am apologising for my absence again. Okay, so what have I been up to? Well, since returning from Paris which feels like a lifetime ago, I had to dive straight back into work. It’s a little-known fact that Langaro Lifestyle Centre in Camps Bay is one of my clients. When their Winter 2018 fashion collection launched, we made a fancy, schmancy video about the trends for the season, why we bought what we did, and how to style the looks. Not only from a sartorial perspective but hair and makeup as well.

The beauty of working with Langaro is that we’re all multi-faceted. Kirsty Da costa, the director, is an accomplished makeup artist. Spa manager Gabriel Verreyne is also a senior hair stylist, and Duncan Pape, whom you’ve heard of here often is a spa consultant and a stylist. I jump around. One minute I’m generating digital content, the next I’m buying collections and photographing models with Duncan. It’s insane but we love what we do and respect each other immensely.

Anyhoo, about that video. Ooohhhh, I do not like my voice. And that double chin. Argh! If videographer Shaun Smit from Red Blur Productions weren’t so cute, nice and talented, I’d strangle him. But I got talk fashion, which was so much fun, and we even squeezed in some big people’s words like “deconstruct” and “voluminous”. Take a look.

So here’s the killer deal; all this stock is now on sale!

Get 50% off this Winter 2018 collection, and 70% off all the other pieces in their style boutique if you buy two or more items.

With snazzy brands like Lui Jo, Le Temps Des Cerises, Cream London an Gordon Smith, your winter wardrobe is literally in the bag. Local brands which are not on sale include the uber sexy ZeitGeist which I reviewed at SA Menswear Week here, as well as the newly launched activewear range Premier Active designed by local model Danielle Ehlers. See, we do lots.

Cheers to our gorgeous models Siphiwe Machinya, Julia Tooke, Liz Croes, Justine Tait and Leah Ballan, and behind-the-scenes production manager, Nicci Kruger. We’ll get her on camera sometime soon.

Follow Langaro Lifestyle Centre on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram. Shop the style boutique online here and follow its own Instagram page, @langarostyle.

Have fun, stylish ones.
love & light

PS: It feels good to be back again. I’m ready.

I’m wearing RuffTung in the Glamour SA April 2018 issue

April 10, 2018

When Glamour SA editor-in-chief Pnina Fenster asked if I wanted to be featured in the April issue, my heart skipped a beat. You know she’s my girl crush, right? The brief was to show a non-red carpet event outfit which I felt most glamorous in.

Without hesitation, I catapulted images and a blurb of a RuffTung jumpsuit I wore back in 2016 to her. Little did I know, the entire issue, Pnina’s last for Glamour SA, would be an ode to South African fashion and design, and that my fave RuffTung designers would grace the cover. I couldn’t make this up even if I tried. Take a look.
