Sunglass Care 101

So the other day a mate gives me a call and asks me to go to an audition with her. We’re both hungover from our individuals shenanigans from the previous night; I obviously grab my zazz (sunglasses) so I can hide my sins from last night. One of the crucial roles that zazz plays in my life.

L’Occitane Shave Pack Review

I don’t really shave much, mainly because I enjoy having facial hair. The other possibility might be that I look 16 or so without it, I guess we’ll never really know.

What I actually do is that I trim my beard along my cheeks and on my neck to keep things neat and tidy. The issue is that when I do shave, I use both a razor and a portable electric trimmer. The trimmer is to shape my beard and the razor is to make sure everything is smooth. This causes razor burn. If you’ve shaved, you’ll know that razor burn is annoyingly uncomfortable as your skin is quite sensitive.

5 Wine Tips for Beginners | #SpierMyWay

One of the lessons my brother taught me when to comes to anything I do is to first cover all the basics…. Well, to be honest he was saying that with reference to my wardrobe (you can’t buy a yellow suit before you have a the basic black/blue/navy) but I just took that and I use it with everything else in my life. It’s working quite well, so thanks bro!
Anyway, getting to the point of this post, I’ll be going over a few basics that I rate will come in handy for you especially if you’re a newbie to wine. I’ll also be giving away a case of wine at the end of the post, so look out for that!

Spring/Summer Classic Sneaker Pick

As we transition from a confused spring to a seemingly scorching summer, there calls for a few additions to a gentleman’s sneaker collection.

Now isn’t the time to bring out the Fear of God’s or the limited edition Jordans. Your focus should be more on lighter, breathable, and versatile kicks. So you need shoes that you can wear with or without socks, with shorts or jeans, a suit, or even with swim shorts.

Spring and summer are the seasons to let loose and take it easy (or to the top when the occasion calls for it). So I have partnered up with Superbalist to bring you my pick of 5 sneakers that you can wear with pretty much anything in this scorching heat.

Doing Wine Your Way | #SpierMyWay


I’ve come to realize that for a country the produces some of the world’s best wine, there isn’t much of a wine culture outside of the Western Cape. The only time most people enjoy wine is at home or when they’re eating out. We definitely do consume lots of it: wine is the second highest consumed beverage in the country, just after beer; So why isn’t there a widespread wine culture in the country? I’m talking wine tastings, events and bars, or even champagne bars whose focus is actually champagne. I know there are various wine festivals that take place here and there but how inclusive are they? (Shout out to Soweto Food and Wine Festival)

Anyway, getting into the gist of this post. I’ll be covering some of the jargon commonly used in the wine community. I’ll also add a food/wine pairing guide in the latter part that is based on some research and experimenting that I’ve been doing with the help of Spier Wines. So most of the tasting notes are based on Spier Wines.
