I’ve been binge watching old South African advertisements on YouTube the last couple of days and I just can’t deal! Here are some of my favourites. Oh, how I love South Africa!
I’ve always been a fan of stories with lessons. Watching a movie and walking out without feeling touched, motivated or inspired feels like a total waste of time and money to me. The Elfkins, an exciting animation (and a story with a lesson) will be released in theatres on 25 December 2020 and it’s a movie dedicated to making a difference. Or is it baking a difference?
I got to review the Land Rover Defender and as a woman, mother and entrepreneur, I am definitely a fan. I took it off-road for an early morning drive; I took it dancing in the city streets. I let it pose between Jacaranda trees and I let it decorate my driveway. For a day, it was mine to drive and I loved it.
He is a South African artist whom I believe will reach great heights. He’s got talent that evolves all the time and he’s not afraid to sing from the heart. His latest album, Oorgenoeg is proof enough that Len Muller is one of a kind.
It was a tough year, but lockdown sure had its perks too. Especially for entrepreneurs Shannon Sweetman and Kyne Lupini who combined their love for their pets and their passion for the pet industry and created an app dedicated to modern pet parents all around South Africa.
A couple of years ago, I went for a sugar treatment instead of my normal waxing routine and I was immediately converted.
If you were looking for a good reason to visit Durban this holiday season, this is it. The ONOMO Hotel Durban’s new Topaz Restaurant & Skybar has opened its doors just in time for the summer holidays and it is the very first of its kind in the city.
A quaint little gem in Birdhaven, Johannesburg, Arbour Café & Courtyard had me mesmerised with its humble details and divine cuisine. Not to mention its surprise courtyard that you won’t know about unless you peek inside.
There’s a place where the sun paints pictures with lacy leaves against the walls and where birdsong and frog chatter are the main choices on the playlist. Nehema Manor is one of the destinations I regard as a special find. Here you feel far enough from the outside world, but close enough not to feel disconnected.
Suitcase & Chardonnay is excited to announce the launch of its very first House Concert & Wine Tasting event in the heart of Brooklyn, Pretoria on 28 November 2020! The inspiration behind it is to support industries that are dear to the Suitcase & Chardonnay brand, like the music and arts industries, as well as hospitality and tourism industries and of course, the South African wine industry.
