    {Travel} Sedgefield, Western Cape & where to eat?

    I am lucky enough to have spent a few weekends and holidays in Sedgefield over the last three years. This place has gone from being a town I had never heard of, to one of my favourite places to visit. Situated between Knysna and George, Sedgefield is a seaside village that is surrounded by lakes and sand dunes and covered in beautiful fynbos and other colourful plants. Everyone always raves about Cape Town, but I really think Knysna, Sedge and Wilderness are some of the most beautiful places you could ever visit in SA. The Sedgefield Lagoon from different perspectives I have had my fair share of food spotting while…

Traditional plastic straws are one-time-use item and cannot be recycled, so they wind up in…

Only later on when I started to take an interest in food did I realise she’d been making this ‘yellow rice’ with this earthy spice. Turmeric is a spice made from a root related to ginger, and it’s what gives curry its bright yellow color. Turmeric IS EVERYWHERE All of a sudden, turmeric is having a big shiny moment in the spotlight! It’s been popping up in…

    My Favourite South African Blogs

    Today, I am writing all about my favourite South African bloggers. What’s a Blogger? When I started in PR in 2011, bloggers were kind of still new-ish to the world. PR peeps were still trying to understand how we could work with them and if our clients would understand their importance. I remember being fully invested in learning everything I could about them and had asked my AD if I could do a few months of research on these bloggers and report back to the team. So it began, and the first person I approached was Shaney from You, Baby & I. We went out for lunch and chatted about…
