Cape Saint Francis.

Cape Saint Francis.

Helloooo beautiful people!

I thought I’d do a little travel post today. 

When it comes to picking where to live, or where to vacation, I would much rather be in a place that is by the sea. I feel like I subconsciously start to slip into a state of mental disarray when I’m away from the ocean for too long. There’s no denying the restorative power of ocean air, and the calm the sight of the sea alone, brings. 

We spent some time down in Cape St Francis during the December/January holidays. It’s not too far out from Port Elizabeth (about an hour and a half’s worth of driving, away). 

Cape St Francis is a lovely little place I’d describe as the more rugged version of St Francis Bay. A quick Google search will tell you that it’s a seaside village famous for its waves. I’m no surfer but judging by the number of people that were out in the water on their boards whenever we’re there, I’m thinking the place definitely lives up to its reputation.

The National Arts Festival 2019.

The National Arts Festival 2019.

Today marks exactly one week since the end of the National Arts Festival 2019, hosted in the lovely Grahamstown (Makhanda). The National Arts Festival is an event I eagerly await all year round till the June/July period arrives. It’s a (really, really) good excuse to head out for a road-trip, and more importantly, to come together with other festival-goers young and old, local and foreign, to celebrate the arts.

Hidden Gems: Colleen Glen.

Hidden Gems: Colleen Glen.

Colleen Glen is without a doubt one of the most picturesque areas in all of Port Elizabeth. With it’s lush green landscapes that stretch out as far as the eye can see, it’s easy to see why it’s residents choose to call this hidden gem home. (Who wants to offer up one of their properties? I’d be love to move in 😂 Or convert it into a farm-style coffee shop/bookstore) Continue reading “Hidden Gems: Colleen Glen.”

My First Fashion Week experience.

My First Fashion Week experience.

This is the literal definition of a throwback post, lol. But you know what they say! Better late than never!

About two months ago, from the 11th to the 13th of October, I had the absolute pleasure and privilege of attending the Mandela Bay Fashion Week for the first time ever! This year’s event marked the third ever time our beautiful city of PE has played the host.

Every time I think of fashion week or fashion week season worldwide, I always think of the ones I see the pictures of online in Paris, New York or Milan, or more locally, Joburg or Cape Town! So when I first heard that Nelson Mandela Bay has it’s very own fashion week I was so, so surprised! And beyond intrigued! Continue reading “My First Fashion Week experience.”
