I have too many to have a favourite. My Dr. Martens and Nike Air Max Theas are somewhere near the top of the list. FAVOURITE SA DESIGNER? I recently wore Jenevieve Lyons’ designs for a shoot and they are just too cool. So she would definitely be my top choice. MOST-TRUSTED TRAVELLING PIECE? My high-waisted leggings from Forever New. I wear them rain or shine, for a night on the town or an evening in watching a movie.
CHILL OUT FAVOURITE HANGOUT?
I’m at Yours Truly almost every day. It’s a bar in Gardens, Cape Town and the Honest Salad with extra avo and smoked chicken is a winner. DRINK OF CHOICE? Woolworths’ banana, honey and date smoothie. Hands down. DREAMING OF GOING TO? That’s easy. Paris.
BEAUTY BEST HAIRCUT?
It would have to be from Michael or Adrienne at Hand in Park Road, Cape Town. MUST-HAVE MAKE-UP ITEM? I don’t really wear a lot of make-up but I love my eyelash curler.
Lady Million by Paco Rabane.
CULTURE BEST BOOK?
The Fault In Our Stars. I couldn’t stop crying. But in a good way. CAN’T STOP WATCHING? Girls. And The Carrie Diaries. ON YOUR PLAYLIST? Portugal’s new album, The Man, and a lot of Bombay Bicycle Club. FAVOURITE APP? Since I’m all about pictures, I have to say VSCOCam. It just makes my Instagram photos look that much better.
