Now, after months of planning, Starbucks together with Taste Holdings, will open the doors to their newest store in Sandton City on 26 April 2018.
Back by popular demand, and celebrating its 2nd year at Mall of Africa, ‘Incredible India’ returns to Johannesburg from April 27 to May 7, 2018. The event promises to be an extravaganza of authentic Indian lifestyle, fashion, culture and cuisine as local and international exhibitors display their wares and delight your senses.
Incredible India has become an annual event that South African and African Indian communities have come to look forward to at Mall of Africa. It is a lifestyle, food and cultural experience with exhibitors boasting the very best in international Indian clothing, cosmetic jewellery, silk carpets, homeware and more.
We all need a bit of sparkle in our lives, and I got to experience a bit of bling at the launch of Pandora’s new Shine range. In my opinion, Pandora is somewhere in the middle range – it is much more expensive than fashion jewellery stores like Lovisa and Collette Hayman, but way less than stores like Sterns and American Swiss, so it fills a niche market.
Bride & Co along with Eurosuit recently launched their 2018 Collection, at the hip Mesh Club in Rosebank, Johannesburg. It’s not everyday that one gets to see exquisite wedding dresses up close and personal, so it was a rare opportunity to touch and feel the gowns.
It was a good idea to have @Tali_Babes (the character from Showmax’s “Tali’s Wedding Diary”) as the “virtual host” to introduce the evening. I say virtual because Tali was on a video recording, who welcomed guests before the welcome drinks.

I recently had my hair highlighted, after researching and being inspired by Pinterest boards, featuring the luscious hombre locks of Jessica Alba. I really love her style, both her dress sense and her hair styles. With screen shots in hand, I headed off to my sister-in-law (@hairbyshafia) who is also my award winning hair stylist.
Here are the results, some subtle blonde highlights…

As the year draws to a close, it’s time for some reflection…
Why are we here? What is the meaning of life? Why was I born? These are all questions that we have asked ourselves, sometimes at the lowest part of our lives, when we have hit rock bottom, no matter our age.
For me, it was when I was 5 years old and I had my first existential crisis. Of course, I did not know what it was called back then… just this feeling of anxiety that no 5 year old should ever feel. What happens when we die? Is there really a Heaven? What will happen when my mother and grandmother and family die, who will take care of me? Why am I here? Was I a mistake? Continue reading
I first encountered The Body Shop back in 1995 when I traveled overseas for the first time. I visited my aunt in Hamburg, Germany and there was a huge Body Shop in the train station. It was like being a kid in a candy shop, having heard about all the products, but not having access to any of it, now I finally could savour the delicious selections of body and beauty products. But for the past few years, South Africans have had access to the wonderful ranges that the Body Shop has to offer.
If you are like me, and you don’t have plans to leave Johannesburg or South Africa for the festive season, then best you check out what you can do in Jozi while everyone else is soaking up the sun on some island somewhere.
If you’re stuck here, then you may as well enjoy it – less traffic, more parking spots and better service at restaurants, not to mention all the festive fun that Sandton City is offering.
