Review: Afari Brightening Elixir

My friend Margaux Knuppe has always been one of the most entrepreneurial people I know. At the age of 26, I was getting wrecked on Porn Star martinis at Asouka.

Review: Lunch at Iron Steak and Bar in Cape Town

Remember Charango on Bree? That steakhouse is no more, but another rather exciting one has replaced it. Iron Steak and Bar serves up organic, grass-fed, halaal-friendly beef in a relaxed yet chic-looking setting. They’ve also got a 1920s-inspired bar offering a nice array of drinks including a creative cocktail menu. After smashing the complimentary popcorn […]

Reviews: Smile Science teeth whitening strips, Gatineau Floracil eye makeup remover and INOAR Sensitine 2-in-1 shampoo and conditioner

If you’re a regular reader you’ll know I swear by Crest Whitestrips. I like both the 3D White and super strength Professional Effects variants and tend to buy whichever I can find on eBay. Both products contain peroxide and some experts say it could be damaging to your teeth and others say they’re not. Either […]
