  This Saturday the Rise & Shine Acoustic Music Festival, Jozi’s first eco-friendly music fest, hits Sandton Central Park. Honestly I didn’t even know that Sandton had a central park, but its only fitting seeing that Jozi is fast becoming the New York City of Africa. I’m no fan of Sandton, but throw in some […]

Blogging is hard work for someone as social as me. Really there aren’t enough hours in the day (or enough caffeine) for me to keep up with my life. There’s just so many fun things going on in Joburg these next few weeks, I can’t seem to find the time to do all I want […]

After that enthusiastic first post, I’ve been absent for almost a year. Story of my life,  always postponing the less exciting stuff in favour of the fun stuff.  Been too busy travelling, attending festivals, loving life… and getting intimidated by WordPress. Wise words by Dr Martin Luther King Jr. So here it goes, taking the […]

So,  I’m finally taking the plunge and not letting this WordPress geek stuff intimidate me.  You’d think it wouldn’t be so difficult considering I’m a social bunny,  tweet a lot and am fairly active on social media.  Let me take a few deep breaths…Here it goes – my first post! I’ve been thinking about this […]
