and on the 11th Day of Christmas...


You definitely know that I am a lover of the Gin... And what is a day closer to Christmas, without adding some Hope on Hopkins Gin to the list.

An artisanal distillery in the heart of Cape Town that prides itselfs on truly crafting its own spirits. Making their gin from scratch themselves, so that the consumers know exactly where all the carefully sourced ingredients come from. 

Using South African malted barley as the base, which is cooked & fermented over several days & then finally triple distilled to make the base neutral spirit for their London Dry & Salt River gins. Distilling on the 4th time allows the alcohol vapours to infuse through the selected botanicals.

The one that I liked most, is inspired by the flavours from the Mediterranean, a Gin made from a Triple Distelled Grape Spirit, the Hope on Hopkins Mediterranean makes the cut. Infused with olives, rosemary, basil, thyme, & cardamon with hints of citrus & juniper. (So more like the 'savoury' gin type.)


Wohoo... And Santa loves a G&T too! So today, you stand in line to win a Hope On Hopkins Hamper! Complete with a bottle of the Hope On Hopkins Mediterranean Gin & Pink Fitch & Leedes Tonic.

and on the 10th Day of Christmas...


The Nomination story begins back in the late 1980's in Florence, in the centre of fashion & high-quality craftsmanship. A few months back I got to sit down with Nomination's founder, Paolo Gensini whilst he was in the country to celebrate a milestone in the Nomination story, their 30th Birthday. 




Paolo wanted to create  innovative modular jewellery for men & women of all ages & all socio-economic backgrounds. Nomination, from the Latin, meaning: "To Name." And so Composable was born. The modular bracelet that can be personalised using stainless steel links which have been adorned with gold letters, silver, enamel & precious stones. Making it a great choice for every style & occasion.




Definitely a new way of communicating & expressing your very own personality through the links that represent you, making it important & fashionable at an affordable price.




Santa comes bearing gifts today! Thanks to the the Treger Group & Nomination Italy, 1 lucky reader will win a Limited Edition 30 year Nomination Italy bracelet.

You scream. I scream. We all scream for Ice-Cream... Häagen-Dazs ice-cream that is! Being around since 1961 has given them some good time to perfect the craft.

and on the 8th Day of Christmas...


Out in Franschhoek, is the Grande Provence Heritage Wine Estate. And it is on this estate that you will find the Angels Tears wine being produced. 

According to cellar legend, angels crept into the cellar & wept tears of joy when this wine touched their lips. I recently discovered the new Angels Tears Sauvignon Blanc.

Image result for angels tears wine logo sauvignon blanc

An easy drinking Sauvignon Blanc out of the Western Cape, with Tropical Fruit aromas on the nose & a palate supported by slight hints of Green Pepper. Very well balanced & leaves you with a Crisp Finish. 

Best enjoyed with Fresh Seafood or Chicken dishes. (Or just on it's own, on the patio looking out over the sea!) 

Santa like a glass of vino now & then too! Thanks to Grande Provence, 3 of you will each walk away with 2 bottles of the Angels Tears Sauvignon Blanc to enjoy in the comfort of your own home & with your friends & family.

and on the 7th Day of Christmas...


One thing about me that you must know is that I always want to smell good! Doesn't matter if I am heading to work, to the club or to bed. I always need to be smelling good. 


Earlier this year, I discover Atelier Cologne & instantly fell in love. 

Related image

Atelier Cologne was born out of the encounter & love of Christophe Cervasel & Sylvie Ganter, the creators & founders of the luxury brand. "Perfume has been our passion & our profession."
Back in 2006, they had a dream to create colognes that are to be worn as Pure Perfumes & so the Colognes Absolues was born. 

Each of the Colognes Absolues tells the story treasured emotions & powerful memories. Starting off with a powerful image & memory, every Colognes Absolues is a moment in a bottle... 




There are currently 6 Colognes Absolues collections:
 - Joie de Vivre
 - Chic Absolu
 - Avant Garde
 - Haute Couture
 - Carte Blanche
 - Bon Voyage
Each with it's own story, emotion & memory...

So my personal favourite. The Oud Saphir comes from the Haute Couture collection. A fresh citrus & woody cologne, that has been highlighted by notes of soft leather.

"Her decision was irreversible. She would not continue living a life by others' rules. To see his deep sapphire blue eyes & feel the calm of his voice again were the only things that mattered now. With him she finally felt ready to write her own history."

As with any fragrance there are 3 different notes that will come through.
Top notes - Bergamot from Calabria, Ambrette from India & Pink Pepper from China.
Heart notes - Violet Leaves from Grasse, Jasmine from Egypt & Suede Leather.
Base notes - Dark Oud, Birch wood from China & Vanilla from Madagascar.






What is available at all the Atelier Cologne counters is a bespoke engraving experience. It is here that you will be able to have your 30ml travel spray refilled & having it's very own leather case engraved with your name or initials. 



Santa is smelling amazing today guys! Thanks to Bacher & Co, 1 lucky person will win an Atelier Cologne Experience at the Atelier Cologne Counter in Edgars in Sandton City, Hyde Park Corner, Eastgate or the V&A Waterfront. You will get to personalise your very own leather pouch having it engraved & taking home with you, your choice of a 30ml Atelier Cologne fragrance.

It's always a good thing to have a few healthy days during the holiday season as well. And who better than Wellness Warehouse to help you out & keep you on the healthy side of things?

We all know that Carbs are technically a no-go right? But lets be honest now, fresh bread is always a yummy treat. I discovered Calorie Conscious breads in the Menlyn Maine store. The healthier option is always the better option.  

Check out some of the Healthy Recipes here. My favourites here are the beverages & smoothies. Always a winner & really tasty, especially in the early mornings to get you started for the day.

I've compiled a list of all my favourite products that I've discovered over the last year & now is the time to share it with you.

and on the 5th Day of Christmas...



A night away at a hotel is always a great break from your everyday life. But it is even better when you get to stay at a 4-star hotel in Sandton on Nelson Mandela Square, whilst being surrounded by some of the best restaurants & shops around.



A contemporary hotel that sure provides guests with serious luxurious accommodation with a mix of the classic & modern along with a monochrome colour palette, it creates a sophisticated yet ambient setting for you to relax in style.




The hotel offers a wide range of services. My favourite being the wellness spa, where you can restore your mind, body & spirit all in one go & indulge in high quality treatments, ranging from massages, body & facial therapy to salon services. There is even a Rasul chamber for you to enjoy & includes 6 treatment rooms which are suitable for private or couple treatments.






Or you can chill out next to the infinity pool sipping on some bubbly enjoying the summer sun whilst ordering some lunch from the Maximillien Restaurant downstairs. Check out my link to my previous post about the new menu out at the restaurant prepped by Chef Sylvester Nair here.
