Review: My facial at Skin Renewal Aesthetic Clinic A while ago I was invited to enjoy a complimentary facial at the newly-opened Skin Renewal Aesthetic Clinic in Morningside. After a severe bout of flu, I felt my skin needed a bit of pampering and rehydration, so gladly accepted. Skin Renewal is part of the Renewal Institute, which claims to take an integrated approach to health and aesthetics. It consists of Skin, Body, Health, Brain and Sleep Renewal – each offering specialist treatments in those areas. The institute is one of the largest medical anti-aging companies in South Africa and boasts 16 branches nationwide. (more…)

[caption id="attachment_268" align="alignright" width="300"] Loving my hair![/caption] Nestled in a quiet, tree-lined street in uMhlanga Ridge is a little gem of a salon. I'm a sucker for all things purple, but I swear the fact that Style Studio on 7, Salon and Training Centre, is decorated in my favourite shade is only part of the reason I plan on making a trip to the salon a monthly ritual. Professional staff who offer excellent style advice, an owner who is as mad as a hatter but with a heart of pure gold, and excellent coffee – my patronage at this establishment is simply a no-brainer.
