    #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, KFC’s national feeding…

    {Travel} What to do in Cape Town for New Years 2019

    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! I have never experienced New Years in Cape Town before, but I have a feeling it’s going to be amazing! One of my friends is coming all the way from the UK and has been asking me on every whatsapp call what we are doing for New Years, and I really hadn’t given it much thought. Until I realised we are halfway through October. So, I started doing some research and in the process…

    Try the New LINDOR Milk Mint

    A week or so ago, I got a drop from Lindt SA to celebrate their new variant in the LINDOR range – the limited edition LINDOR Milk Mint, which arrived in a BEAUTIFULLY packaged Gold box filed to the brim with the green chocolates.

    The Daily Buzz & Craft Coffee launch SETA accredited Barista training academy

    As you sip your coffee, latte or espresso this weekend, you might think there’s a crew of coffee masters, magically whipping up your drinks behind the coffee bar, but did you know that South Africa is actually experiencing a shortage of well-trained Baristas? That’s why The Daily Buzz and in-house coffee roastery, Craft Coffee, have launched the very first locally developed and SETA accredited Barista training academy in Newtown, Johannesburg, in July. I attended the event in Newtown earlier this month to find out more.

    Visiting Lexi’s Healthy Eatery

    If there is one thing Lexi Monzeglio – owner and chef at Lexi’s Healthy Eatery knows – its how to make plants taste unbelievably good. My sister and I, plus two very skeptical meat loving boyfriends, headed there on Friday evening after hearing some really awesome reviews and it did not disappoint. Just over two weeks ago, Lexi and her business partner launched Lexi’s Healthy Eatery in Sandton. This spot is striving for the most sustainable, conscious, moral and nutritious way of eating, which Lexi describes as – mostly plants and very little processed foods. As a former graphic designer, Lexi left her desk job over five years ago to…

    {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…

    Stop Using Plastic Straws!

    If there is one video you need to watch that will make stop using plastic straws indefinitely, it has got to be this one. It’s a disturbing footage of a sea turtle, with a stream of blood running down his face and straw lodged in his nose, while two researchers work to extract it. It is one of the saddest things you will watch on the internet and it makes me kind of hate to think I ever sipped a drink with a straw.   Why do you need to say goodbye to plastic straws? Traditional plastic straws are one-time-use item and cannot be recycled, so they wind up in…

    {Trending} The Terrific Turmeric Trend

    My first encounter with turmeric was this ‘yellow rice’ my mom used to make at dinner. I had no idea that she was actually using the turmeric for seasoning, all I knew was that if my rice wasn’t yellow I didn’t like it. 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…
