Christmas at Sandton City

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.

How Do I Look? South Africa on E! Entertainment Television

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.

A Night at the Palace – The Palace of the Lost City – Hotel Review

My first experience of the Sun City resort was back in 1989. I was 15 years old, it was the first time I had ever gone anywhere on holiday and it my first time on a plane. I had the opportunity to see the resort many times since then, but I’ve never stayed at The Palace of the Lost City (the most expensive hotel within the Sun City Resort) until last month, when I was invited to enjoy #ANightAtThePalace.

Painting Joburg Blu (Radisson Blu)

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.

Skip Fashion Exchange

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).
