Swellendam: A Weekend Getaway

This past weekend proved that you don’t need to go to a sought-after destination to have a picture-perfect holiday. Our short weekend getaway to Swellendam this past weekend proved to be quaint, picturesque and just the right amount of adventure-and-chill. Swellendam, for those who don’t know, is a small, sleepy town a mere 2.5 hours more »

20 experiences for writing

I’ve been reading a lot of lists on how to become a good writer. And I’ve been thinking: To be a good writer you have to read. Sure. This is a given. You read to listen to the way other people tell their stories; to be inspired. But that’s not where you’re going to find more »

Three Wise Monkeys

Out of all the restaurants in Cape Town’s huge food scene, Three Wise Monkeys is hands down my favourite. Ironically, (because this is a blog post) I have no words for how much I love this restaurant. Cosying up at a table with a bottle of wine and a steaming bowl of ramen, surrounded by more »

I wasn’t going to take it anymore. I sent an email to my modeling agency letting them know I was quitting, more »

Birthday Books

You know you’re surrounded by the best when you get only your very favourite things for your birthday. Opening present after present this year on my 23rd, knowing without a doubt that they were books, some I knew and wanted and others I didn’t know at all but fell in love with all the same.

Loving the rain

I love the rain more than I can humanly describe. Do I love it so because I feel its absence? Would I love it less in a more dreary, weather-ridden city like London, a country like Ireland? Did you know that Uganda is the country with the most thunderstorms? It has, on average, 242 days more »
