SIMPLICITY

We all have that one pair of jeans or dress or sneakers that you can wear no-matter-what and just feel good. My version of this is the white striped flowy trousers from Forever New. I feel like I can wear them to the beach with a bikini top or to a fancy event with some heels and a nice top (as long as I don’t mess some tomato sauce or something on them and actually keep them white!) In this case- I wore them scootering around Uluwatu in the morning and strolling through Ubud in the afternoon. I just felt…

NOT SO MONDAY BLUES

There were a couple of factors that contributed to us going to Bali in June. I mean, who would not want to go to Bali? Beautiful beaches, a-ma-zing food, chilled vibe, sunshine, surf, warm water, yoga… but, the factor that reaaaally put Bali on the “where-are-we-going-for-our-leave” list – we don’t need a visa. As South Africans, we are kind of used to the fact that we need a visa for basically every country on our big blue planet. So, since we were not going to be in the country for 3 months before our trip (still working in Botswana), we…

FRENCH (RIVIERA) KISSING

After three LONGGG months I was finally reunited with my boyfriend Pierre, and in no other place than the French Riviera. It was my first time in this gorgeous part of the world and I might as well have stepped into a postcard. I have to be honest, I wasn’t a good tourist. I didn’t go to any monuments or museums, I didn’t go on any tours or learned any words other than “Bonjour” or “Croissant”. All I did was wander around the old parts of the towns of Antibes, Juan-Les-Pins, Nice and Monaco with my bf’s hand in mine,…

NEW YORK CITY: EMPIRE STATE OF MIND

There’s just something about New York. It’s the thing that urged artists like Frank Sinatra and Jay Z to write the songs that we end up quoting on our Instagram posts. I’m not sure if it’s the fact that there’s always thousands of people around you, everyone on their own mission, or the sea of yellow taxi’s flooding the streets, or the chaos of the city being broken by the absolute tranquility of Central Park, or the promise of success in the names like ‘Broadway’ or ‘Wall Street’. I guess it’s different for everyone. It is, however, a very overwhelming city.…

PARIS, THE CITY OF STREET MUSICIANS

   .          .    .      You know that it’s usually the best weather on day you have to leave? Well, for the first time in my life, that was not the case. Today, I am leaving a cloudy Paris behind. Apparently, the weather that I have had is Paris the past couple of days was something way out of the ordinary. With this time of year being associated with rain and cold, it was completely weird to have people tanning on the banks of the Seine River this week. It felt like summer and I wasn’t…

FROM PARIS, WITH LOVE

   .    I went for the coolest run this morning. I guess my runs get longer the more comfortable and at home I feel in a new city. On this particular run, I ran down the street to the Eiffel Tower, ran along the Seine River, over the Love Lock Bridge (where, sadly, there were 5 guys in neon bibs busy removing all the locks), passed the Louvre, through the Luileries Garden, passed the Roue de Paris ferris wheel, up the whole Champs Elysees, underneath the Arc De Triomph and sprinted the last 1km to the hotel. I know that…

PARIS BLOOMS

 .     Hey there guys, It’s day two of my trip and I had already walked more than a marathon (this is probably a good thing since I am running a half one in New York in less than a week). I always end up being over excited on my first day in a new city and try and cram as much of the sights in to this one day. So that’s what I did and now I feel super accomplished. Now I can relax and start looking for those Parisian gems, the one’s off the beaten track. Paris is…
