Mangwanani African Spa
Treat the love of your life to a magical night-spa package at Mangwanani Sibaya! Let their therapists pamper you and your partner with welcome drinks, snacks, a complimentary bar, dinner with delicious desserts and three luxurious spa treatments. You could also simply opt for a couple’s massage with your partner where you’ll be able to relax and unwind with a 60-minute full body massage with hot stones (available at Mangwanani Ballito, Elangeni, or Sibaya High Tea Room (next to the main spa)).
Nothing says ‘I love you’ quite like a gorgeous, heart-shaped slice of decadence. Château Gâteaux’s yummy Raspberry & Vanilla Heart is the perfect spoil for that special someone, with layers of raspberry and vanilla cheesecake on a nutty crunch base, topped with a raspberry coulis and garnished with ruby chocolate drops! How fabulous! Available at Château Gâteaux stores, R99.
Ice cream cake heaven!
The beautiful bespoke artisan ice cream cakes carefully put together by the team at Scoop Ice Cream are what ice cream cake dreams are made of! Made to order and perfect for any occasion, Scoop ice cream is made with only the best local ingredients. Choose your favourite flavour for the base and then top it off with as many different flavoured scoops as you like. Prices are from R450 for a cake that serves 10/15 people, and they can cater for up to 150 people with one cake!
Chill those toes, in style!
We all need a pair, or two, of good slops. In fact, our balmy North Coast summers call for more than just one or two pairs . . . you need a pair in every colour! It’s quite handy, then, that we have a beautiful, fully-stocked Chilloes store at the Ballito Lifestyle Centre. They have a variety of designs and colours on offer (including their fresh new daisy design – in both mint and grey for only R195), as well as a selection of ‘bling’ accessories to add some sparkly to your new slip slops.
There is absolutely no doubt as to the undeniable link between dehydration and ageing in the skin. And, while ageing can’t be stopped entirely, it can be slowed down somewhat. Adding intensely hydrating ingredients (like Esse’s new Hyaluronic Acid Serum), can boost barrier function so that your skin doesn’t lose water in the first place. The serum uses a combination of both low molecular weight hyaluronic acid and probiotics to prevent dehydration and the signs of ageing.

Sleek, smooth hair is rather difficult to achieve if you also love swimming in the ocean and enjoy all that North Coast summer has to offer! Or is it? A Sweet Professional shampoo, condition and treatment, available at Ashleigh D Hair in Salt Rock, offers you up to three months of guaranteed beautiful, straight, hydrated hair and is formaldehyde and sulphate free – all for just R940.
