All the bubbles with none of the alcohol
There’s a massive trend globally towards a healthier lifestyle and ‘mindful drinking’ by choosing low or no alcohol drinks for health and social reasons. Today it’s all about having a choice and it has become socially acceptable and increasingly trendy to opt for a non-alcoholic drink. So, this month we’re celebrating love with a bottle of Robertson Winery DRY Non-Alcoholic Sparkling White . . . a refreshing bubbly that’s not too sweet, and is alcohol free. It tastes sensational . . . delightfully dry with gorgeous notes of pear and mandarin, orange blossom and honeysuckle. You’ll find it for around R50 to R55 at your local bottlestore.
Our mums used Jane Seymour Wonderset. And their mums probably did, too. Tried, trusted … what’s not to love? This iconic brand has just been given a fresh facelift and added a few new products to the range. We’re trying (and loving) the new Liquid Hairsprays for when we’re wanting a more structured, sleek look with a defined hold (and they smooth back stray hairs effortlessly and give definition to curls, too). R69.99, or R46.99 for the smaller one which is perfectly sized for your handbag or gym bag. There’s also a Curl Control Mousse (which gives your curls va va voom with no frizz) for R82.99, and a new Ultra Hold Hairspray (extra strong hold that lasts all day) which costs R49.99 and R38.99.
Sunnies that care for your eyes
To buy polarized sunglasses, or not to buy polarized sunglasses? We say buy them! Simply put, polarized sunglasses use special technology to minimize the glare caused by light reflecting off flat and smooth surfaces, which means less strain on your eyes and less squinting! There are also loads of fabulous styles to choose from and this year’s trends include retro 90s sunglasses, mirrored or clear lens sunnies, re-imagined Aviators and pastel tinted sunglasses. If we’re speaking your sunglasses language then make sure you visit your nearest Execuspec for a selection of all the trendiest sunglasses in their BAKER collection.
The power of plants
Experts tell us that eating less meat and more plants is better for your health, and eating a plant-based diet can lower your risk of diabetes, heart disease and strokes. A great way to spoil yourself or someone you love this month is to invest in a NutriBullet, which will save you loads of time and help ensure that you still get your ’10-a-day’! NutriBullet liquidises fruit, veggies, seed and nuts, while ensuring you still get all the nutrients from the inner layers and pips, the flesh and the outer skin.

Vegan treats for pets
With the veganism trend growing massively worldwide, as well as people embracing flexitarian diets, it makes sense that those who take this way seriously would look at incorporating vegan snacks into their pets’ diets, too. Hello Hunter Crunchy Biscuits … two tasty vegan snack options which pack a nutritious punch. Your pets can enjoy the apple or orange flavours, both rich in dietary oat fibre, omega 3 & 6 and vitamins. They are also gluten-free, making them suitable for pets with gluten intolerances (yes, this is a thing!). The treats support a healthy skin and coat, joint health and a healthy digestive system and can be used as a reward or as additional nutrition. You’ll find them for around R134 at Takealot and selected supermarkets and pet stores.
