About Me

bee 16“Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street, fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening”

Coco Chanel

As Chanel said, fashion is in how we live. Fashion sets the tone a season, an era and what connects us as a society. This is why art, design and down to what we wear and eat reflects what is happening in life.

My name is Bee and I am from Cape Town, South Africa and my blog focuses on my personal love for travel, fashion and food. Essentially, this blog is a space to share my experiences, opinions and favourite things.


What does Bee du Jour mean?

I lived for a while in Paris, France where I was an MBA student. Naturally, I had to learn French while I was there and so came up with the name Bee du Jour, which essentially mean ‘Bee of the Day’. The name is originally from my Instagram account as I shared pictures of daily life in Paris, but has now extended into my blog’s name too.


A Bit about Me

bee 14

I was born and raised in Cape Town, South Africa and have always had a strong interest in both travel and fashion. After completing my studies at university in media and marketing, I decided to work and live abroad. I first held a position as copywriter in Peru, then an ESL speaking instructor in South Korea and then a student in France.  It was after my studies in France where I completed my MBA with a specialisation in Fashion Business Management that I decided to finally pursue my career and call Cape Town home. Today, I am lucky to work in marketing and media for some of the world’s amazing brands.

Travelling has not stopped, nor has my ever-growing interest in the world of fashion. My blog will continue to be the place I get to share my experiences from everything from my country, to where I go and a look into the ever-dynamic world of lifestyle trends.

My work was featured in Conde Nast’s House & Garden SA in August 2019. Click the image to READ MORE France House and Garden
