Who would have thought that you would be able to escape from the city within the city? Nestled in Randburg, is the Fusionista Spa. 



An essentially Eastern style location that will have you feeling relaxed from the moment you sit down to enjoy one of their complimentary beverages upon arrival. I opted for the 'Skin Tonic' which is strawberries, lime & basil & is said to be a treat for your skin...

Choosing from their wide variety of treatments, was probably the most difficult decision for the day.
Head massages.
Foot & Hand massages.
Neck & Shoulder massages.
Back massages.
...so many options! Check out the full spa treatment list here.



What really makes this different is that there are various different treatment rooms, each unique in their own way. From wind chimes, to candles & crystals to the outdoor Koi Mist room. Each room offering a very different vibe & a very different feel, so you will be able to find exactly what you are looking for.

So I opted for the Koi Mist room... And this is what you get. 



An outdoor style room, where you get to have your treatment done suspended over a Koi Pond with light mist filling the space up. It is super relaxing to lay there & watch the Koi swimming underneath you whilst enjoying your treatment. 



After all the exam stress that I built up over September & October, I decided it was time for a Deep Tissue Full Body massage. Not for those that struggle with a slight bit of pain, but it is definitely worth it as soon as the therapist is done & you can literally feel the stress & tension move through & out your muscles, leaving you feeling revived.


I can't wait to visit here again. It was such an amazing experience.

Check out the experience on #FusionistaJHB to see what we got up to.

#SAFWAW18 Day 5 - RK Menswear

They relationship between fashion & 'the man in the street' has always been a curious one. Egalitarian by Keys Fashion is at the forefront of the anti-feminist movement, where feminine masculinity can assume its place within the fashion industry. An industry where men are the protagonists of their own radical rethinking.

#SAFWAW18 Day 4 - Tailor Me

Today the Tailor Me brand sees each & every  one of their clients as a new friend who shares the same ideals. Men who believe that while looking the part is important, being undeniably themselves is even more important.

#SAFWAW18 Day 4 - Roman Handt

"My role as a designer is to question mostly. I'm not there to provide the answers. I am there to provoke." You can see that Roman Handt interrogates the role of the 21st century man, through the use of fabric, pattern, cutting & construction methods. The label started back in 2011 & has since been a growing menswear design movement. The artisanal approach to design empahsises a non-traditional attitude & centres on skillfully constructed garments that have transcended boundaries around occasion, situation & masculinity.
