Women’s Health Live Festival

October was the start of my return to gym! The long time wasted gym membership debit orders that go off on the 1st of each month, into the gym abyss, has come to an end! Let me back track a little … towards the end of 2015, I needed an operation which, after 3 weeks out of hospital, led to a blood clot, which led to a pulmonary embolism in my lungs, which almost killed me. It took about 2 years to feel like my usual self, although my left leg and foot will never be the same again. Hence, I did not feel healthy enough to venture into a gym. Thank the powers that be, that now I can at least walk on a treadmill for 30 minutes at a brisk level 5! Slowly but surely, I am getting there, literally one step at a time.

Since I am finally on a path to fitness, I am delighted to tell you that on the 10th and 11th of November 2018, Women’s Health (WH) magazine are launching the first ever Women’s Health Live Festival – a weekend of wellness.

It will be held at The Wanderers Sports Club in Johannesburg. Think of it as a Coachella of Wellness – three stages (entitled Trends, Fitness and Inspiration) supported by amazing speakers, fascinating panel conversations and interviews led by the WH editors chatting to cover stars, celebrities, fit family, social influencers and experts who will be sharing stories, experiences, expertise and knowledge.

Well, Montecasino have come the rescue with their “Night Out for 2” package. So, what do you get, how much does it cost and how do you get it, I hear you asking?

2018 Bokeh South African International Lifestyle and Fashion Film Festival

The theme for the event was “Tim Burton” hence the models, with Comedian, John Vlismas, were dressed like characters from “Alice in Wonderland.”

I had the honour of being invited to the Bokeh South African International Lifestyle and Fashion Film Festival last week, at a lavish red carpet event. This is the 5th year of existence for the festival, which brings together creatives in the Film, Fashion, Artistic and related technical industries to celebrate their craft twice a year. The event is held in both Cape Town and Johannesburg, and I attended the latter, at Shepstone Gardens.

Iconic Connex Atomiser – Review

I recently returned from Thailand (blog posts about this terrific country to follow soon) and I took along those perfume samples that one gets for free in magazines and at perfume counters, just because I did not want to take along my 50ml or 100ml bottles of perfume, and then run the risk of it being confiscated at customs! But all of that is easily remedied by using an atomiser from Iconic Connex.

I was sent an atomiser to review, and here are my thoughts.

Cell C Inanda Africa Cup Polo Tournament

Unpredictable, thrilling, addictive – however you choose to describe the game of polo, the “sport of kings” remains a narrative of history defined as an origin that primarily involves, horsemanship, team spirit, sportsmanship, trust and respect.

I have attended two previous Africa Cup Polo tournaments, and each time was a thrill, as there is an air of sophistication that only polo has.

The 2018 Cell C Inanda Africa Cup Polo Tournament, offers an action-packed day with a display of exceptional horsemanship amongst competing teams from Ghana, Kenya, Nigeria, South Africa, Zambia and Zimbabwe, with the closely contested and fast paced final, witnessed by a premium audience of 3500+ people annually.

Medi-Sculpt Aesthetics Day with Dr Anushka Reddy

In an era of Instagram and now IGTV, where everyone has the opportunity to have their own personal “channel” to broadcast whatever they want, living your best life (thanks for the payoff line Oprah!) also means having to look your best. And sometimes that means having “work done” but you don’t need to “go under the knife” for many treatments these days.

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.
