Purchase Daniel Wellington watches with a 15% discount

For those of you who didn’t know: Daniel Wellington is the revolutionary Scandinavian company that is making international waves with their incredibly tasteful watches. TBH, I’ve seen these watches on so many famous style influencers that I’ve basically lost count – and now I’m blessed to say that I can add myself to the list of those fortunate enough to own an amazing watch from Daniel Wellington. The concept of creating a… Read More

loaves on long cape town cafe and bakery

Before you are greeted with the unmistakable scent of freshly baked bread, you are met with the glaringly obvious fact that you are stepping foot in a building of yesteryear. Well, yester-two-hundred-years, to be more specific. Loaves on Long is a quaint little eatery that is situated on 33 Long street within the bustling melting pot that is Cape Town’s CBD. It is jointly run by two lovely ladies, Lyndal Wakeford and… Read More

The best roast chicken recipe

I was delightfully surprised about a week ago by my Austrian cousin, Nasrien, who came to visit me – not from Austria, LOL – but from Durban. I’d never cooked for her prior to this occasion, so I was really worried that she needed to enjoy herself and feel comfortable while she paid me a visit. She also had expressed to me in our lengthy telephone conversations that she was trying to… Read More

Leather leggings outfit

I love the combination of leather and lace! It’s the perfect marriage between two fabrics that are so diverse. You can use leather and lace to strike a balance between both the fierce and the virtuous goddess from within you. In this outfit, I also used opposing shapes in the form of the tight leather leggings set against the flowing, soft white fabric for my blouse. Somehow, it ended up being one of those… Read More

SA Fashion Queen Bee, Raeesa Naik, South African Blogger, NYFW

In the light of recent events (Fashion Week being a major one), I’ve decided to give you a blog post on my take of NYFW, and what I’d wear perhaps. I chose this ensemble by literally grabbing stuff out of my wardrobe, but sometimes when you dress in a hurry, you tend to look better than if you contemplated the whole thing. I like to refer to it as our “basic sartorial… Read More

Asoka Bar and Lounge, Kloof Street, Cape Town

Let’s just clear the air: it may be a bit difficult to get into Asoka, but once you’re in, then all the prior planning and hassle you underwent will be well worth it. The starters come in the form of really tiny tapas, so order many of those if you’re in a large group (I’d recommend the platter selection to share while you wait for mains – it starts at R85 per… Read More

SA Fashion Blogger, StyleSociety, Cape Town

I had the delightful pleasure of attending StyleSociety’s pop-up boutique held at The Forum in the V & A Hotel. For those of you who don’t know, Kumari Govender (editor at StyleSociety) is my aunt & fashion mentor, so I’ve basically been anticipating this event for a long time! Guests & shoppers were treated to drinks at the door (which I didn’t really have because I was just so eager to go… Read More

Elle Style Reporter Awards 2013 in association with Blackberry

I always tell my friends that if they want to have a good time, then they should go to an event hosted by a fashion magazine. I have never been proved wrong. And Elle Magazine SA? They deliver the whole package and more. The purpose of this party is to bring together finalists of the Elle Style Reporter competition, and award the winner. This is all done in a stylish & artistic… Read More
