As part of the WeWork “Show Us Your Dream Space” campaign, I was asked to share a picture of my current workspace. Here in South Africa, we have sun practically all year round. This helps create that warm mood I love about mine!
Trends come and go, but some styles never really become trends, preferring instead to shy away from the limelight while retaining a subtle but strong longevity. Rose gold watches are one such phenomenon. While diamond encrusted watch faces and delicate bracelet straps have all had their day in the sun, rose gold watches have always been intensely stylish but have seldom become wildly trendy. This means that only the most discerning watch consumers choose rose gold. Here are some reasons to choose rose gold the next time you purchase a watch.
The other day I attended a workshop introducing a new beauty product to the shores of South Africa, Vita Liberata. See their Facebook page here and their Twitter feed here. It’s an independent British tanning brand that offers a range of odourless self-tanning products, skin care products and unique spray tan formulas. I was thrilled to be invited to check out the self tan we’ve been waiting for: organic, non-toxic and long-lasting.

I recently attended the Klein Constantia / Omega Pharma Quick-Step charity cocktail do in aid of Francois Pienaar’s MAD Charity (Make a Difference). Held at the gorgeous Klein Constantia wine farm, there was a fantastic turn-out despite the weather and everyone seemed ready to have a good time. There was an auction which saw some exciting items being swept up by enthusiastic bidders. From a 5 star break-away for two donated by the Royal Portfolio to a brand new top-of-the-range bike donated by Specialized Bikes, guests were keenly getting involved for a good cause. It also helped that pro-cycling legend Eddy Merckx was there!
