IN THIS EDITION
Our combined December/January magazine always tends to be our favourite (we can’t help it) and this year is no different. Our team has worked hard to collect and curate a wide range of exciting, season-relevant content and we just love seeing it consumed and enjoyed by our readers.
This month we interviewed so many interesting and inspiring people … including former Springbok and Sharks rugby player, Michael Claassens, who lives in Zimbali with his five (!) beautiful children and lovely wife. We spoke to luxe event planner, Emily Lockhart, who recently spent three months creating beautiful events in Antarctica and found out about the Miss SA journey from top 10 finalist Lebogang Mahlangu.
On the fashion side, we showcase some hot summer trends from local North Coast boutiques and we’ve got great tips for making sure you’re all ‘festive glam’ in the beauty department this season. The food, oh the glorious food (and wine, obvs!). Not only have we got the ‘scoop’ on Ballito’s own wine cellar, but we have a stunning Christmas lunch menu (including recipes) put together for us by local chef Nicky van Eeden of Avocado Pair and presented on a stunning festive table made up by the talented Creativity Lab team. As always, we have a fantastic festive guide, which includes loads of gifting ideas and we even chatted to our 2020 cover stars to find out what they are up to this Christmas!
Property is an important topic at this time of year – especially with loads of potential investors making their way to the area for the holidays. Our 24-page property feature is full of stunning home inspiration and loads of tips and advice from North Coast property experts.
