Summer is undoubtedly my fave season in Cape Town. The weather is hot, and we are spoilt for choice by the many beaches around this beautiful peninsula. Let’s face it, summer in Cape Town is… More
The Zeitz Museum Of Contemporary African Art, or Zeitz MOCAA, opened its doors on the 22nd September 2017 and held its grand opening to the public for free until the 25th. The museum currently houses the largest collection of contemporary African Art in the world. It is an amazing space and showcases the latest in art from all over Africa from current artists that explore topics on identity, politics, society and history through a variety of visual and aural mediums.
Last week, I was lucky enough to be part of the UNESCO World Heritage Road Trip to the Grootvadersbosch Nature Reserve. It was a fun collaboration with the popular @instagram_sa, where 4 bloggers from various creative backgrounds came together and went on a road trip to celebrate South Africa’s Heritage Day on 24th September. The aim was to visit some of South Africa’s most beautiful and well-preserved conservation areas.
Before leaving Seoul, I made sure to check out the latest fashion exhibition by Louis Vuitton. The exhibition called, Volez, Vougez, Voyagez was held at the amazing Dongdaemun Design Plaza. Travel and fashion are 2 things I absolutely love. So Volez, Vougez, Voyagez was the perfect exhibition that combined these 2 popular lifestyle trends.
Kalk Bay harbour lies on the East Coast of the Cape Peninsula and lies in the False Bay Gulf. Growing up in Cape Town, Kalk Bay has always been a great post for watching seals, eating out and watching the fishermen come in with the catch of the day. The harbour walks also offer relaxing views of the ocean and a nice break away from the city. Let’s discover more about this small spot in the Cape.
Lion’s Head is one of Cape Town most popular hikes that lies in the heart if the Mother City. Lion’s Head also makes up Cape Town’s famous skyline that creates that perfect picturesque balance. I did the hike for the first time last year in May 2016 with two friends.
I finally did the Korean hanbok experience! I put it on my Korean list to-do when I arrived. When I first came to Korea it wasn’t really a major attraction nor were there many places advertising this service, but over the last 3 years it has become a popular activity with tourists. I personally thought it was a great idea and opportunity to experience a new fun side of Korean tradition. So one Summer afternoon in June, I headed out to Jongno 2-ga to rent a hanbok.
As the sticky, hot monsoon season draws to a close, South Korea’s famous Boryeong Mud Festival begins and ends in the final week of July. I was lucky to have gone twice to the festival, that is famed for it’s skin energising mud off the coast. Let’s take a look in pictures into just what makes this particular festival so popular among locals and tourists in Korea.
A friend of mine had won tickets to see the Shelby House exhibition at the Daelim Museum in Jongno, Seoul. She kindly invited me and another friend to be her guests, as we are all art lovers. So one hot, muggy and humid Sunday in Seoul, I met with my friends and went to check out the exhibit.
I saw adverts for this exhibition all over my social media 2 months ago. The Mademoiselle Prive promotions combined cool character animations of Coco Chanel and a look through her design process. The process of how Coco Chanel came to build her brand and how the current Chanel still uses her history to define the brand today, is what keeps the brand moving forward. The Mademoiselle Prive exhibition has come to Seoul, and is being showcased at the D-Museum. I went to check it out over the weekend.
So I’m still a bit Jeju obsessed. My Spring weekend on the amazing volcanic island of South Korea has left me daydreaming of it even more, now that the hot sticky summer of Korea has hit the country full force.
