Queen Latifah and Common heading to South Africa

Queen Latifah and Common are heading to South Africa! Yes, you read right! You may have even heard by now, but you know me, I like to sit down with all the info and give it to you straight. They're heading here for an important reason and I've summarised it all in five quick points! Here's all you need to know about Queen Latifah and Common's trip here! I'm not too certain about interviews yet but if those happen, you can expect I'd like to get you guys involved with some questions! When and where? My hometown, Durban will play host to these two awesome people! They will be heading to SA in mid-July - looks as if Durban will be the place to be (as always) in July. Why? After 15 years, the International AIDS Conference (IAC) returns to South Africa this winter. In commemoration of this fact, and to help accelerate the fight...

Pinkprint Tour Experience & Meeting Nicki Minaj

Wow, is this real life? Am I sitting down to write this? I have to take several moments because I'm unsure. I shot a video for this, but the lighting was less than desirable towards the end. Naturally this was the night before going to China so I had no time to re-shoot. I've decided to shoot it again when I return because I honestly need you all to sit down and watch what I have to say because it's still so surreal. I'm going to do a quick overview of the Nicki Minaj concert. When I return expect a more detailed look. I can't leave without sharing some of my feelings - which, again, don't feel real. I hope you enjoy this. <3 The Pinkprint Concert I went to both Johannesburg shows - 17 and 18 March. For the first show I was Golden Circle - right by the rail! When Onika came...

Nicki Minaj is coming to South Africa

Remember that time I freaked out when Nicki Minaj was heading to SA for a music festival that never happened? Well, forget it. THE QUEEN IS OFFICIALLY COMING TO SOUTH AFRICA - and this time I'm 100% certain the event get cancelled because it's her The Pinkprint Tour! If you know me - or don't - chances are you are quite aware of my insane love for Onika Tanya Maraj. To this day, my love for her still puzzles many but I don't care. From makeup to nail polish to her perfumes, I literally own every piece of merchandise and album imaginable. Nicki is pretty much the only artist I so religiously spend my time and money on and have done since I was in high school back in 2009 (prior to her official 2010 debut). From Mixtape Minaj to worldwide Nicki, I've been through every sage of her career and...

Converse x South Africa

It was such an honour and exciting time to be able to afford some of you awesome guys an opportunity to attend the Converse store openings in Gateway (Durban) and Sandton City (Johannesburg) over the last few weeks. I think it was a great way to kick off December as well as celebrate Converse's official opening of their speciality retail stores. Converse is a brand, as I have said, which I have grown up adoring. It's a brand which really believes in the importance of individual style as well as comfort. I love the many unique ways you can jazz up your chucks and walk around in crazy, cool style!  The stores in both JHB and DBN will offer over 100 different styles for men, women and children will be on offer including Chuck Taylor All Star, Jack Purcell, CONS, Converse by John Varvatos as well as other premium footwear collaborations. Fans...

Summer Holiday Must Dos

Hello Summer holiday! Yup, a lot of us are probably on holiday. Well, technically I'm not because I'll be heading off to China in March but I did take a few days off so I'm keen to try out some new things as well as relax. With tons of times on your hands, do you know how you will be spending the holiday with your friends and family? Groupon offers a myriad of things to do and places to see, whatever your tastes I bet you'll be able to find something fun to get up to! My friends over at Groupon shared with me a list of cool things to check out in JHB. Check it out below! I know I may be trying one or two of the below during my time off. Bungee Jump for One at Bungee Mogale Before the invention of bungee jumping, flying through the air was an experience reserved only...

Converse x Sandton City (GIVEAWAY)

Last week I told you about my introduction to the Converse brand when I still lived in Durban and was younger (then what I am now). The brand really is the epitome of style and comfort. What else will let each and every person be able to showcase their individual style and personality? The answer: very few clothing and shoe brands. Living in Johannesburg has had me be exposed to so many different types of people. From sporty to girly to hip to eccentric, what I noticed with each and every one of them was their common appreciation for one brand: Converse. It's rare to see a brand have such an appeal to such a wide and vast audience. It's always funny to think about how different a band rocker is to a self-titled geek. Oh well, each of them can rock their pair of Converse shoes like no one else...

Converse x Durban (GIVEAWAY)

Growing up, I always remember my sister being a fan of sports clothing brands. Due to her interest in the style, it was only natural that I acquired an interest in it too. Living in Durban it seemed like a natural pairing too: strolling down the beach promenade in a great pair of sneakers. A family favourite was always Converse, both stylish and durable, their shoes were worth every Rand and cent. Do you want to hear something exciting? Converse is opening two specialty retail stores in South Africa! The first will open this week on 2 December at Gateway Theatre of Shopping in Durban. The second store will open its doors on 8 December at Sandton City in Johannesburg. I know many of you will be counting down because this will be Converse’s official stores in the country! Expect to see limited edition collections, premium footwear, apparel and accessories never before so widely available...

Our DIY Disney dog kennel

Yes guys, I painted a dog kennel inspired by Disney! Technically inspied by their Disney Junior show, Doc McStuffins, it was amazing to be able to be a part of something so fun and great!

Basically, we had to get creative and paint a dog house which Disney would hand over to a local SPCA. We jumped at the chance of this fun project – creativity and animals, what a great combo. We were given a ton of supplies such as paint and stencils to create a uniquely designed house for a little cute furry four-legged friend.

We headed over to Wilma’s place – where she has the most beautiful dogs, cats and a pig – to work on the project. We bought tons of pizza and snacks. We started a bit later than expected but it was worth every bit of effort involved! Instead of writing about the experience, I shot a little vlog which you can see below.

We also took some photos – though I was not around on the day the photos were taken – to shared of the completed dog kennel. Check them out below after the jump!

What’s in my bag – rAge Expo 2015 edition

I'm going to rAge Expo 2015! I'm so happy and excited and beyond thrilled (I can't even form proper sentences)! rAge is something I've always wanted to go to, but living in Durban meant it was never really an option. My friend, MAthew and I would always talk each year in high school saying we want to go and roadtrip to the expo, but we never did. Now, I'm finally going. Yup, it's happening. I'm heading to the expo with media passes because I am keen to do interviews and tons of coverage so make sure to follow me on Facebook and Twitter to see my updates - I'll Periscope too. I've decided to share what I plan to take to rAge. I got so excited, some of the items are upside down and I only noticed later - but who cares, right? Saturday is going to be hot - JHB is currently...
