Spa Review: Life Day Spa at The Waterfront, Cape Town

Do you ever have days when you’re just so grateful for your life? I try to do that every day, but some are definitely better than others… Like the Tuesday morning I found myself heading off to the Waterfront for a spa launch. I had expected that it would just be a typical beauty launch […]

Spa Review: An at-home massage with Recharge Body

Since last year I’ve been struggling with a sore back… it’s definitely got better than when I first threw it out, but it’s still niggling, tight and aches fairly often.

Spa Review: My organic facial at The Little Green Box

Like many women I love beauty products, treatments and spoils. Who doesn’t!
