A morning with a friend at the Sanlam Handmade Contemporary Fair

Karen and I went to the Sanlam Handmade Contemporary Fair this morning. It’s held annually on the roof top at Hyde Park shopping centre. It was actually the first time either one of us had been. We got there as the doors opened at 10am, and I’m really thankful we planned that because the parking was already a nightmare in the centre. As we normally do when we walk into a market, we headed straight for the champagne. The first stand we saw was Graham Beck and we tried the Rose sparkling wine. It was really delicious! There were...

A week definitely wasn’t enough time to spend there. Zinkwazi is about 35km north of Ballito on the KZN coastline. It’s a tiny place with a few streets.

We sampled a few of the eating spots while we were there, but didn’t...

Running the FNB Joburg 10km City Run

Although it was so enormous, it was really well organised. Every runner was seeded into pens. The A-D pens left at 8am and the last 2 pens left 15 minutes later. There were a lot of arguments...

My top 5 sneakers for summer from Superbalist

I’ve been looking for new sneakers to wear on weekends for a few weeks now. A few new pairs of sneakers for summer would be the perfect addition to my wardrobe. Superbalist has such an awesome selection of sneakers so that’s the perfect site to go browsing. As you probably know if you follow me everywhere, I’ve really been struggling with a running injury for months. I’m actually feeling quite desperate about the whole thing actually. After seeing a podiatrist (which was a disaster and is the subject of a future blog post) and a bio kineticist recently, I’ve...
