Durban
Join in the Lindt Easter hunt Who doesn’t enjoy chocolates over Easter? As much as I promise myself, I will not overindulge, Easter is the one time in the year when I cannot say no to chocolate-covered marshmallow eggs or bunnies of the milky variety. This Easter, Lindt SA will again be hosting their Lindt Gold Bunny Gardens at various shopping malls around South Africa.

Circle of life

Circle of life

Lifestyle, My Journey
Circle of life Living on the east coast, I've grown accustomed to the beauty of a sunrise over the sea. That time of day - when the sun, sky and sea engage in a game of tag, showing off as they throw out a myriad dazzling colours for our eyes to feast on - is when I feel a deep sense of peace and spirituality. This year I got to experience a number of sunsets over the sea. After long, hot, hazy days, the soothing sight of calm seas and a setting sun is a calming experience. It's a circle-of-life kind of moment - bringing me back to the beginning, encouraging me to start again, assuring me that to move forward is not about forgetting but rather about accepting.

Lifestyle
Avoid the debt trap this holiday season The summer holidays are all about fun, sun and a great deal of excess.

Come the middle of January many of us land hard on the hard rock of reality – where bank balances are low and we wait impatiently for our next pay cheque. (more…)
