The September Issue of Bored

September Issues- Lots of Issues

The time has come for us to gather in judgement of the September Issue covers. Content? Nah. Who has the time to trawl through 600 pages of ads? I haven’t really read a magazine cover to cover since the inaugural Porter with Gisele Bundchen. I still haven’t made it through that Gaga September Issue cover… no word […]

Brunch- the blues

Brunch- Blues In The Summer

Another summer gone way too soon, though we’ve hardly had any of her. July was supposed to be scorching but none of that, August, the traditionally warmest month, has been okay but nothing like it was in the past. Summer? Rather its been summer-ish and a bloody tease which has me singing the blues in a […]

I Am My Hair

From the age of five to about thirteen, just before I left for boarding school, every Saturday or Sunday, mostly Sunday because I am the last minute child, I would go to the market with my sisters to get my hair done for school the coming week. Braided or threaded, it was a weekly ritual, and most […]

Trinidad, Cuba- Where Time Stands Still

Trinidad, Cuba. A land where time stood still waiting for us to see what was left behind. Where Havana has my heart, Trinidad sips into my soul. The essence of life; authentic and dizzying, deep and deeper, history. I was not ready to leave. I have never been to a place like Trinidad and I know I never will. She is […]

Florence- Eat. Play. Stay.

Always and forever, Florence will have my heart. I could go back there everyday and still never have enough of it. The people. Their passion. The food. The ambience. Even the tourists, nothing ever makes Florence less that what it is- BEAUTIFUL. EAT In Florence you can eat anywhere and everywhere there is no shortage of […]

Beyonce formation

Formation- Beyoncé

“I did not come to play with you hoes. I came to slay bitch.” When I die I want this on my tombstone. It is 2:30am in London and I find myself going through a very dejá vu moment. It seems Beyonce has a connection to my sleep time because every time I try to go to […]

WOMEN, New Portraits- Annie Leibovitz

When its all said and done, Annie Leibovitz will go down in history as one of the greatest visionary of our time. Without question, she would deserve this honour because for years to come we will marvel at her body of work. Her photographs capture the soul, the essence of a person, her subject whether animate […]

Brunch- Last Days of A Summer That Never Was

When I think of brunch, I think of friendships. Something about brunch says its a meal that is meant to be between friends, boozy, loud, chatty, happy, full of life and loving. Its familiar, a place you come to share the stories you know your mom should never hear, the escapades and shenanigans that make even […]

Pancakes For Lunch- Bad Aunty

Baby sitting weekend is my favourite with my cheeky two year old nephew who talks back, claps back and asks why. A LOT. I love it. It is also my chance to be the cool fun aunt that flaunts the rules before giving him back to his parents. We keep it secret until of course […]
