    {Lifestyle} An update on Global Citizen

    Earlier this year, all we heard about was Global Citizen. Everywhere you went, everything you read, it’s all people were speaking about.

In case you have been living under a rock, Global Citizen is an advocacy organization, dedicated to ending extreme poverty by the year 2030.

    {Gluten Free} Baking with Ruby Chocolate

    Ever heard of Ruby Chocolate?ย After dark, milk and white, ruby is the most uncommon chocolate discovery in 80 years. That’s right – there hasn’t been a chocolate discovery this ground breaking for over 80 years! Towards the end of 2017, Swiss chocolate maker Barry Callebaut announced the discovery, as well as the fact that his company would be producing this fourth type of chocolate. Joining dark, milk and white, ruby has now entered the chocolate family, meeting many chocolate lovers excitement and of course, sceptics criticisms – (many believe white chocolate isn’t even chocolate and they classify ruby’s strange taste in the same league as white). For Chocolate Lovers, we…

    Over the weekend I attended the new HALLS XS launch at Rosebank Mall – where we got to try the new HALLS XS flavours and enter the Flip.Pop.Go activation. Halls XS is a new on-the-go, sugar free candy, that its not only methylated – as Halls is known for – but also has a new shape – a small little bubble, bursting with fresh flavours such as Mentholyptus, Lime and Watermelon.

    Ever heard of Probiotics for your Skin?

    Have you ever heard of probiotics for your skin? If you have been following along this week, you know I am doing a guided 7 day Gut Reset with Nine Aesthetics and Nourished WellBeing. Tomorrow is my last day of the cleanse, but I was already seeing the effects on my body by day 3, including less bloating and constipation. Then on day 4, the bad bacteria in my gut decided they were not going out without a fight and my skin started to become sensitized and inflamed from all the toxins being released. You see, when your body is detoxing from anything, you’ll likely go through withdrawal symptoms. This…

    #1120under5

    This entire week my social feed has been filled with people talking about #1120under5 – including Nasty C himself! AND EVERYWHERE ELSE… Because Nasty C seemed to be the centre of it all, reports and speculation on social media pointed to an album drop and in a seperate news article a clothing line, but today the meaning behind #1120Under5 was revealed and it’s a very powerful message it leaves you to digest. ”The reality is that 1120 children under the age of 5 die of malnutrition in South Africa every year.” Here is a bit more about the campaign: With October being World Hunger Month, Add Hope, KFCโ€™s national feeding…

    From the 27th to the 1st of December, a bunch of friends and I are going down to Cape Town for New Years and I am BEYOND excited to ring in 2019 in the Mother City!
