Following the announcement of the inclusion of the POP BOTTLES Ent TWO’s UP stage at Superbalist is Rocking the Daisies 2016, Cape Town’s music festival enthusiasts have a lot to look forward to. It’s one thing flying international and local music talent from other provinces into Cape Town, but it’s another thing altogether when the OG of Cape Town Hip Hop is placed on the line-up, and not for the first time either.

Youngsta has a highly impressive list of titles and achievements, which you can check out here, and represents a multitude of brands that include Red Bull and 2Bop. Youngsta is clearly no stranger to the SA Hip Hop industry and we’ve decided to let his music do the talking. Continue reading

Our Wedding

IMG_5675IMG_5645

The Gold Creatures Wedding | As many of you may already know, Greg and myself tied the knot in in March earlier this year. To say that it absolutely was the most magical time of our lives is an understatement. I think, as with most couples who decide to get married, you realize quite quickly into your wedding planning that your wedding is not all about you like people love to say it is. I mean it is. It’s about your commitment to each other and celebrating that, but it’s also about your family and more importantly, honoring them with your commitment. Continue reading

A Night out with The Forager & The Botanist Gin

About a week or two ago Greg and I attended an amazing event at the one of a kind pop up bar called THE FORAGER by Botanist Gin. To be honest, Greg and I never really know what to expect from events these days, sometimes they’re a lot of fun but most of the time they’re just a massive waste of our time. This one, however, blew our socks off. What an awesome experience! Continue reading

Sneaker Diaries | YEEZY BOOST 750 All black

After collectively losing our minds THREE times for YEEZY BOOST’s this past year, it’s safe to say that Kanye and adidas Originals have owned the high end ‘must-have’ sneaker game of 2015. With another 2 drops before 2016, I actually feel like I need to tell Kanye to stop playing with my feelings. adidas Originals also, stop with the heat! But also don’t stop because I like the heat and I want all of the YEEZY drops and they are very nice, thanks. Continue reading
