THE MILLENNIAL’S GUIDE TO CAPE TOWN PART ONE

Cape Town is perhaps one of the most millennial-friendly cities in the world. Although, as a born and bred Capetonian, I am probably a tad biased.

3 DAYS IN BELGIUM

One of the best things about living in Europe is its proximity to so many amazing travel destinations.

Florence is a city seeped in history, from its cobblestoned roads to its magnificent bridges and elegant facades. Each piece of the Tuscan capital fits together to tell the story of a town frozen in time.

CATCH OF THE DAY

For some inexplicable reason, fishnet stockings are having a major fashion moment. Well, perhaps not so inexplicable. Like many things in our bizarre pop-culture obsessed world, the trend started on social media with seemingly none other than the notorious Kardashians.
