The Bungalow restaurant and lounge opens in Clifton

Jiiiissssuuuussss! You have NO idea as to how much my head hurts this morning. I’m totally tripping off my face on Grandpa right now, so please forgive me if this comes off as a bit of a ramble… Last night I hit up the launch of the Bungalow, a new restaurant and lounge in Clifton […]

Bourjois Healthy Balance unifying powder review

I’m a big Bourjois fan. If you’ve got blue eyes like me you HAVE to give their Metallise metallic eye liner in Brun Inoxydable a bash. It’s an uber-creamy bronze-coloured shade that makes your eyes POP! I much prefer it over wearing black which generally looks too harsh when teamed with my pale complexion and […]

A very merry Christmas… with love from INGLOT, Accessorize and La Senza

Despite being a wicked little girl (one who goes to bed without taking off her make-up and merrily drives up people’s asses), I’ve yet to find a lump of coal in my stocking. In fact, I’ve been rather spoiled, particularly by INGLOT, Accessorize and La Senza. (Yip, they’re all part of the same group in […]

There’s a new club in town: The Loop

So there’s a new club in town called The Loop. I was invited to check it out after the Kluk launch so I popped in for a bit with a few friends. To be honest, I don’t think I’m the spot’s target market (i.e. its a bit of a younger crowd) and I felt supremely old bitching about […]

Kluk CGDT celebrate new store opening in Cape Town (with lots and lots of Belvedere vodka)

Last week I popped into the launch of Kluk CGDT’s new store in Cape Town. Naturally, my most fashion-obsessed friendie, Clouds, was my date. She’s the only non-celeb I know who owns real Louboutins… It was a Belvedere vodka sponsored affair so, as you can imagine, the bar was awash with cocktails… Remember that fab cranberry one I mentioned last week? I […]

So I tried botox to help my TMJ…

The other day I ran into Dr. Kamlyn Pillay at the Longevity/Dermalogica/ex-Miss SA bash. We had a nice little catch up, but mostly I bitched about the killer tension headache that was ruining my day. I’m an angst-riddled jaw clencher, you see… and while I don’t grind my teeth at night, I tend to subconsciously ‘bite’ (usually when I’m concentrating or […]

Lunch with J&J… plus a side order o’ skilpad

Last week I had lunch at the Vineyard hotel with the B-line PR team. (They handle the Johnson’s account and are also responsible for Neutrogena). Over a yummy slice of quiche, I learned that good ole’ J&J would be getting a li’l packaging makeover in the new year.  Check out their new look lotion bottles:  I was also spoiled with a fab Neutrogena […]

Celebrity Slim diet update

Okay, so I’ve finished my week-long Celebrity Slim diet. Sjoe! First off, I have a little confession to make in that there were two days where I totally cheated. Living on shakes (even for just two meals a day) is a little difficult as I spend a lot of time at events where they pour champers down your neck […]
