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.
Hosts of How Do I Look? SA – Kat Sinivasan and Roxy Burger
I’ve always loved a good make-over show, so I was delighted to hear that E! Entertainment’s local version of “How Do I Look?” will be starting this week on DSTV channel 124.
I attended the launch event last week at the Diamond Walk in Sandton City. The trend these days, it seems, it so have launches along side expensive boutiques in the walkway of malls, with the chairs and screens erected, plus a lounge vibe created with luxurious couches and bubbly.
I recently attended the launch of Luxwide Travel Rewards, at the chic Munro Hotel in Houghton, Johannesburg. It was a hot summer’s morning and the drinks on arrival were a welcome relief from the heat.
The views of Johannesburg from the patio at the Munro Boutique Hotel are spectacular, with Jacaranda trees as far as the eye can see. From this vantage point, one can see why Johannesburg is known as one of the world’s largest urban forests.
Back when I lived in Cape Town and worked as a Production Manager on international commercials, I often went to view hotels, so that I could see where our overseas clients would be staying. I was reminded of this time in my career, when I was invited (together with a group of other influencers, bloggers and media) to experience what the Radisson Hotels in Johannesburg have to offer clients. Enter #BluJoburg.
I grew up with “hand me downs” and wearing some of my mother’s and grandmother’s clothing, bringing an authentic realness to the term “vintage”.
In fact, I still wear one or two items of clothing that belonged to my late mother, and to me, it is still stylish to this day. I’ve also swapped clothing with friends, and find nothing wrong with wearing “previously owned” clothing, as long as it is in good shape.
Enter the Skip Fashion Exchange, which takes swapping clothing to a new level. I attended the launch the other evening, at Sandton City Mall, in Johannesburg, and was eager to see what I could swap for my Mango pleated colourful skirt. (Pity that I forgot to take a photo of this skirt before I handed it in).
LeKapLifestyle Fair, anticipated as a highlight of the ‘jet-set’ social calendar, makes its début in Johannesburg after being held successfully in Cape Town for the past three years.
The event will be hosted by Steyn City, the sprawling 2000-acre multi-billion Rand lifestyle resort, on the 10thof June 2017. “The exciting collaboration between Steyn City and LeKap Magazine to host this sophisticated annual event is a powerful and unique social and corporate platform, which will attract both local and international captains of industry, celebrity and VIP guests to Steyn City” says Giuseppe Plumari, the CEO of Steyn City.
The hair care industry worldwide is an enormous business. From products, hair stylists to appliances and hair pieces, it seems like a niche market can be found anywhere in the world, because we all need to wash our hair, right?
Usually, I leave my semi-curly hair to its own devices on the weekends, and blow it out for work on week days. Either way, my products keep changing as I experiment with what works best – a hair brand slut, of sorts.
