Lottering at The Lyric Theatre

Marc Lottering has always been one of my all time favourtite comedians. He hits the nail on the head with each performance I have ever attended, and I’ve always made sure that, come hell or high water, I make it to his shows when he is in town. So I was “over the moon” to hear that Lottering at the Lyric will take place on Sunday, the 8th of July at The Lyric Theatre at Gold Reef City at 3pm.

Emmy Nominated Project Runway comes to Mzansi Magic

The fashion design reality show that kick started many a career, including that of Christian Siriano, is coming to South Africa! Mzansi Magic and Ndalo Pictures in association with 4th STREET Wines and production partners Rapid Blue, are proud to announce that a local version of Project Runway is about to grace South African television screens.

I recently attended the reveal event, where it was announced that the gorgeous, sassy and vibrant Lerato Kganyago will step into the role of the host for Project Runway South Africa.

In the weeks building up to this annoucement, like the layers of a Gert-Johan Coetzee couture gown, first the judges, then the mentor and now the host has finally been revealed.

Fearlessly high on trend, Kganyago is the go-getting former beauty queen, television talk show host, presenter, DJ, entrepreneur and actress who scooped this year’s SAFTA for Best TV Presenter and stole the hearts of everyone at Project Runway SA.

The Future of Office Working Space: More Innovation, Less Stress

We’ve seen Airbnb disrupt the entire hospitality industry and today, the biggest taxi company in the world, Uber, doesn’t own a single vehicle. Shared space and assets are not only more practical and affordable than the alternative, but are also rising in popularity globally.

In Cape Town, Africa’s most expensive city for real estate, co-working spaces have become the go-to option for entrepreneurs, intrapreneurs, SME’s or large companies.

Inner City | Ideas Cartel (IC | IC), located in the heart of Cape Town, offers a diverse, luxury experience. In addition to the co-working offices, company offices, meeting rooms, there’s also a magnificent rooftop and 98-seater auditorium used for events. Members of Inner City | Ideas Cartel have full access to the 11-storey building’s restaurant, coffee bar, library, gym, tailor, barber and rooftop pool.

The Royal Wedding on E!

I remember my first Royal Wedding… it was the 29th of July 1981 and I was in Sub B (now known as Grade 2). Lady Diana Spencer was marrying Prince Charles., and the world was mesmerised. (Insert record needle scratching sound here!) But we all know how that turned out, so on to new memories.

Memories that will be made on Saturday, 19 May 2018, when Princess Diana’s youngest son, Prince Harry, marries Meghan Markle. And you can watch the whole event live, from the comfort of your living room, on E! (DSTV channel 124). Continue reading

Pandora’s New Shine Range

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.
