    Increda-peg

    At a Christmas market I attended last year I noticed this incredible business that was selling a product called an Increda-peg.  I was so interested in what they were offering, & the whole idea behind this business model.  And then I saw them popping up in more places, & I saw the need for such a design.  So I knew that it was time to reach out, learn more & let you in on their little secret… Your name: Margie Potgieter Business name: Increda-Peg Social media handles: Facebook, Instagram & Website Tell me a bit more about what you do: We make Increda-peg, which is not just a peg.  These…

    Smergos

    I met Nick & Nicole some time ago through a media event that we were both at, & they then had me over for an interview about invisible illnesses.  I was immediately drawn to their love & passion, & I clicked with them on a level usually reserved for friends for many years.  We laughed, teased each other & felt so comfortable finding our groove together.  I knew that I wanted to spend more time with them & learn more about their business, Smergos. Time has run away from us as we all have busy lives with work, doctor’s visits & life plans (ahem – Nick’s wedding coming up!).  So…

    Kiki Beauty

    Near the end of last year I got sent some products from Kiki Beauty to try out.  I had no idea what to expect – their social presence had caught my eye, & I was definitely interested in finding out more about them, but I hadn’t yet tried their actual products. I was sent their Pink Velvet Hydration Cream/Mask; 2-in-1 Makeup Remover & Toner; Rose Wax Lip Balm; & samples of a few of their products to try.  They also included an Emerald Green Eyeliner Precision Pen from Bionic Babe.  Well, let me be completely honest with you… I cannot fault them in the slightest!  In fact I have recommended…

    Vrienginne

    Vriendinne + gin = Vrienginne When I saw this name, I immediately had a huge goofy grin on my face!  You guys, how cute is it? I haven’t yet sampled them myself (it’s on my to-do list though I promise, but jeepers this Janu-WORRY has been real!) but there are only positive reviews on their page & the whole idea around this just makes me excited.  Plus I am sure you know by now just how much I love a good gin 🙂 Your name: Marike Smit Business name: Vrienginne Social media handles: Instagram, Facebook & Website Tell me a bit more about your brand: The name encapsulates the purpose…

    Woelig

    I LOVE a good t-shirt – especially when they have funny South African sayings on them.  You can wear these anywhere, & pair them with jeans/shorts/skirts.  And when I saw a local business creating super-cute designs, including clothing for babies & children, I immediately popped them a message to see if I could feature them on my blog. Your name: Anneke Buckle Business name: Woelig Social media handles:  Instagram & Facebook Tell me why your shirts & designs are so different to others:  Everything about Woelig makes me proud. The font, the cute afrikaans words and all the love that goes into it even the packaging. The words are unique, proudly…

    Sugarbird Gin

    I am a HUGE gin fan.  I don’t usually enjoy too much alcohol, but when it comes to gin I feel there is nothing better on a hot evening.  Husband & I sit outside, enjoy a cold drink together & chat over our day.  My body doesn’t feel bloated or gross after I have indulged a little, & I haven’t woken up with any kind of headache. And then I discovered Sugarbird Gin & I was even more excited.  Read on to see why… Your name: Nzeka Biyela Business name: Sugarbird Gin Social media handles: Facebook & Instagram What makes your gin different to other brands: A proudly South African gin…

    Mayalief

    I am super excited about this business – especially coz a special friend is expecting her rainbow baby, & I have been on the hunt for special gift ideas.  When I saw all of these creations, I was drawn into a deep, dark rabbit hole & went back to the very beginning of their social media posts – & there was nothing that I didn’t like! I always prefer to buy baby shower gifts from small businesses & find that which you can’t get from any store at the mall – I have been surprised too often with gifting exactly the same outfit/item as someone else… Your name: Michelle Goosen…

    Black Strawberry Activewear

    I attended International Yoga Day a while back with some friends.  I got to spend some time purely on myself, tried new Yoga flows, & left feeling utterly relaxed.  With the stress that every day life is throwing at me, I often feel like I am simply functioning on adrenaline & absolutely dread the day that this runs out! While I was at this event, I got to spend a little time walking around the stalls that were there & see more of what is on offer in the fitness/wellness industry.  One such stall was Black Strawberry Activewear… I was attracted to them from their bright colours & the friendly…
