Just a Zimbabwean girl living it up in cosmopolitan Jozi. Tech junky, social media addict

One of the perks of my hobby as a freelance writer for Trend Frenzy Magazine is I get to go to awesome events that case the best of South Africa. A week ago I was invited to the exclusive VIP launch of Bounce South Africa. This is a first in South Africa and is going to be an awesome addition to the Johannesburg activities scene. Bounce is a worldwide franchise of trampoline parks. In America, where the concept came from, many trampoline parks were old, dirty and unsafe. The owner of the franchise decided to make a trampoline park that…

I am a modern girl. I love food and trying out new things which is why fusion food is my favourite type of food. It is traditional yet creative and often produces mind blowing results. You get the tradition food you love with an amazing twist. Great news is that I have found one of the best restaurants in Jozi that serve the most incredible fusion food, Wasabi (an Asian fine dining establishment in Croydon). One word describes this place: “incredible”. Think amazing dishes, impeccable service, great ambience and wonderful management. As a restaurant reviewer I have to notice the…

In today’s fast paced world “now” is the it word. The word “now” runs our daily lives, informs our actions and changes our perception of things. “Now” is not just a word anymore, its a lifestyle. It’s a prerequisite for many things and its an attribute that businesses and people need to have to seem efficient and hard working. What if life wasn’t lived by the term “now”. What if we lived life by “sometime” or “when it happens”?  Don’t get me wrong, being pro-active is a great attribute to have, but there are limits. The fact is, people keep…

“Would you go to Mars?” is not a normal question, nor a normal conversational topic, but one day it could be and in certain circles it already is. I present to you the Mars One Mission: “The Mars One mission plan consists of cargo missions and unmanned preparation of a habitable settlement, followed by human landings. In the coming years, a demonstration mission, communication satellites, two rovers and several cargo missions will be sent to Mars. These missions will set up the outpost where the human crew will live and work.” (According to the Mars One website) So now the question is: “Would YOU go to Mars?”.…

In today’s world you HAVE to look good. That is the message sent out daily by thousands of adverts, in all shapes, sizes and forms. No one is happy with who you are as you are. You always have to do better, look better, feel better and be better. Not just a tiny bit better, but you have to take massive strides everyday to feel like you are making progress. It is sad, but it’s the truth and it won’t change anytime soon. This renewed focus on health and body image has led to a massive fitness movement.  Pinterest boards…

A businessman once said to me “Integrity and your word mean nothing in this world. Don’t trust anyone and don’t believe anything.” This businessman introduced me to another businessman who I was going to work with. I don’t want to go into details BUT this deal with the second businessman (businessman B) went wrong because he went back on his promise and did not communicate his change of mind to me. When he asked for money I went to Businessman A because I valued his advice and I didn’t want the relationship to take a sour turn. That didn’t happen as…

Breaking up is never easy. For some it may be, for others not so much. For people in Victorian times, a breakup was done with an eloquent letter, for people in 90’s it was by fax, for people in the new millennium it was all done via texts and in chat rooms and finally we have arrived at the age where it is done via an app. There are actually number of apps out there to help you break up with someone. This is the world we live in. Breakup Text is the perfect app for those who are too lazy…

In South Africa we have a few awesome cities. There’s Johannesburg, Durban, Pretoria, Cape Town, etc, but Johannesburg is the best for me. Many people will complain about the pace of life in this amazing city but hey “ if you can’t handle the heat, stay out of the kitchen”. Johannesburg is a fast paced metropolitan city with thousands of things to do, the best night life and of course the hottest people.  Okay…. yes the traffic is not very nice but the destination is! People who come here lead a fast paced life full of excitement, culture and fun things…

What do you get when you add a spoof of Jersey Shore, some talented video producers and script writers, some buffed up guys drowning in spray tan and a view of Table Mountain? The answer….. Jozi Shore. The Jozi Shore video (which has had over 119 000 hits on YouTube already) is basically about how a couple of buffed up, tanned, “boytjies” trying to find the party H20 scene in good old chilled out Cape Town. The video is ‘lekker kiff” and shows fast cars, hot girls and chiseled hunks who like walking around in their underwear. The language in this…

Whenever I walk into a nice coffee shop on a horrid miserable rainy day I always think how lucky I am that I can afford to buy something to warm myself up with. So many people can’t afford to do that. The other day I read an interesting article about suspended coffees. The writer was sitting in a coffee shop when a lady placed an order for 2 latte’s and 2 suspended coffees. The writer was puzzled but thought that maybe she had a made a mistake. About half an hour later a group of 6 men came in smartly dressed…

So here goes. My first opinion piece.  I struggled to find an apt topic, one which I could write and write and you, the reader,  will keep interested.  So here it is: Gun Control. Following the horrific shooting in the Newtown which killed 20 little children and 6 adults, gun control has become a raging issue in the states. A testament to this is the fact that the National Rifle Association (NRA) has seen their membership numbers spike massively since the tragedy. Even Obama has taken a stance and is seen to be taking the NRA head on. His proposals…
