After being born and bred in South Africa for twenty-eight years, I finally made the move to London. Graduating with an honours in psychology and psychological assessment at the University of the Witwatersrand, I went to Wits Business school to do a mini-MBA, which precipitated my life in the management consulting world. With a six month travel through Central America behind me, I'm opening my heart to London and most importantly to its welcoming of my arrival and perky offerings.
It all seems to be happening with a variety of events coming up for South Africans in the UK! From a potjie competition and bring and braai, and of course opportunities to socialise, exercise, and meet new people.
All of us deserve to feel royal, even if it is just for one night.
It couldn’t be a better couple weeks coming up in the UK. With folktronic music, an arts and culture exhibition and a whole lot of wine – it’s time to get involved.

Blacklock is all about chops. And only chops. Cooked over the charcoal and flattened with a vintage flatiron so the taste of the meat is pure and the smokiness of the coals brings back memories of your summer barbecue.
Breakfast is a phenomenon rather than a meal. It can be served at any time of day. Tastes can be accentuated by the comfort of being served in bed, or as the cafe opens its doors with a cinnamon infused aroma, or at midday at one of these top finds in London.
After being in London for over a year, I finally committed myself to finding a Barclays, otherwise known as the Boris bike, docking station and losing my ‘Bori-ginity’!
It is the NHS… so not exactly new, hip and stylish.
Our beloved perforated glad wrap has arrived on the shelves of M&S.
Do not get sucked into the confines of the inner walls of offices and hotels. Rather set your mind to the exploration of places after hours — it may even help with your body clock and its welcoming of exhaustion, forcing London’s normal waking hours into a forgotten routine
