Welcome to Mzansi Life & Style!

I started this blog because I love Mzansi (South Africa) and I want to showcase the stunning style, happenings and life that is all part and parcel of living at the Southern tip of Africa.

I was born in beautiful Cape Town and migrated to Jozi (Johannesburg) in 2003 for work purposes. Attending functions, parties, launches and site-seeing became part of my life, coupled with sourcing celebs for the show I content produced (Spirit Sundae on SABC1). Besides this, getting to know the highways and byways of Jozi, increasing my social circle and having ambrosial culinary experiences begs to be documented. And since my being hired as a Lifestyle Editor for a local glossy is as rare as winning the Lotto, I decided to make this blog one of my dream jobs.

So, you can look forward to highlights of events, what’s hip ‘n happening, behind the scenes of shoots with celebs and my own personal sartorial elegance.

First pic – the very practical and comfortable, yet stylish, Black Coffee Concept Dress that I wore to this year’s SA Music Awards.
