The Story Clinic

Awareness of your internal dialogue could change your mind and life. Click here to see how you can win a free session at a beautiful guest house in the Cederberg mountains.

Talent Matters!

Geta Finlayson is the most renowned, well known and beloved jeweler of the Overberg! Her ability to capture ethereal beauty in an object has never seized to amaze me. It comes from inside her and spills into her work through design and loving care. Every time I wear my Geta pieces I feel deeply special and blessed. Read more about Geta’s Jewelley.

Nature, Respect and Protect Matters!

The Overstrand Municipality has drafted an Integrated Management Plan for the Fernkloof Nature Reserve. This without prior consultation with either the Fernkloof Advisory Board or Vogelgat Reserve. Please sign this Hands off Fernkloof petition! Read more on why we vote for Hands off Fernkloof.

Self-love and Beauty Matters!

Other than a walk in nature, we all know that the first step out of depression or just to feel better about yourself and life, starts with a little gentle self-care and a lot of healthy self-love. Refine anti-aging and laser clinic in Hermanus is a haven for many men and women for just that! The atmosphere at Refine Clinic hovers between chic, elegant, serene and funky. It is just so really lovely to be there! Probably especially because you can rest assured that you are in really caring, professional and good hands. It is a ‘breathe deeply, exhale and enjoy’ experience! Read more about my experience at Refine. 

Inspired Action Matters

Wine & Food Matters

Ex Creation Wines semper aliquid novi!

Read about the many achievements of Creation Wines during 2017.
One of my favourites is the brand new delectable Creation Fine Cape Vintage makes the perfect gift.
To keep is Human; to give Divine! 
Imagine the temptation of peppery pimento spice mingling with aromas of dried apricot and peach, the nostalgic fragrance of Banksia rose … Imagine the lure of honeyed fruit, a hint of black cherry, the lingering reward of anise…read more about this super Christmas gift… 

MOvember ~  For all Bro’s and Mo’ attachments – make a knot in your tail to book for next year’s Movember function at Creation Wines! Your palates and prostates will thank you! I promise!

Seven Springs 

Follow Seven Springs on Facebook to stay up to date with the jet-setting, wine-sipping super lovely Vaughn and Tim – amongst other things, their Hemel & Aarde Valley Winery floor was cemented two weeks ago and these are exciting times!

Sumaridge & the Grapevine

In the northern hemisphere, dreaming of a white Christmas conjures up images of picture postcard villages encrusted in snow. In the southern hemisphere, dreams of sunshine, white sandy beaches and white frothy surf come to mind. Read more in her delightful newsletter, the Grapevine.

Hermanus Wine Village

If you are in the Overberg region – your journey will be rewarded if you pop in at the Hermanus Wine Village at the foot of the Hemel and Aarde Road. #JustDoIt!  Either way, join the Wine Village Wine Club 2018 for fantastic value for money!

Movies Matter!
