While it’s no secret that South Africa’s Mother City is constantly growing its global reputation, the news that Cape Town will be hosting the 14th World Summit of Nobel Peace Laureates is nonetheless something to be very proud of indeed.

This year’s event took place in Warsaw, Poland, and was attended by a number of people including the Dalai Lama, Sharon Stone and City of Cape Town [more]
Wondering where to watch the fireworks in Cape Town this year? Here is a full list of approved places to enjoy the amazing displays of light, sparkles and colour!

Shopping options reflect this diversity, with a combination of shopping centres, retail stores, tiny second hand shops, cooler-than-cool boutiques and even market stalls on hand – each offering a different take on the season’s trends.
There is no doubt that Cape Town brings its own style to South African fashion as a whole – diverse, often different and in some cases, even bordering on hipster. What better way to sum up Mother City style than an A to B [more]
October in Cape Town is a fine time indeed, and this month we have a huuuge list of events to enjoy, from penguins all the way to Pinotage.
Now that spring is officially here, the days are getting longer and the nights are getting cooler. Jeans and boots are being swapped for shorts and t-shirts, as we try our hardest to catch a bit of a pre-summer tan.

Anyway, I am 99.9999% [more]
