editor's letter

Imagine there was a way to eat pasta, drink wine and stilllose weight? Sound too good to be true? Well, it’s not! Nutritionist Angela Dowden has made (almost) all our dreams come true by putting together ‘the comfort food diet’ (p62). Perfect for cooler months when you’re after something hearty, it means you can enjoy foods like cheese, bunless burgers and chips, without derailing your weight-loss efforts. And because no one can be on a diet all the time we have included tart recipes that look so delicious you will be tempted to lick the page (p76)! If you tend to spend winter cooped up indoors then you’ll love the brilliant ideas in this issue: planting a herb garden (p100), simple home decor upcycling ideas (p96), and a yoga workout that boosts…

'i don't believe in failure'

Amanda grew up on a farm in Eswatini (Swaziland) before moving to South Africa with her family. She first appeared on SA screens in a McDonald’s commercial and later went on to star in popular local soapies Generations, Muvhango, and Skeem Saam. Now an actress and social media influencer, Amanda plays Ashley in Shadow, a new crime-drama from Netflix. She is engaged to businessman Shawn Rodriques. My happiest childhood memories involve swimming and spending afternoons quad-biking on our family farm with friends. Afterwards we’d sit down and tuck into the biggest feast because we would be starving. I also remember visiting my grandmother after school. She’s responsible for teaching me siSwati and, for some reason, a simple meal of tea and bread at her house tasted magical. My parents are very proud…

fashion news

THIS MONTH WE LOVE... The fashion phrase on everyone’s lips at the moment is 'conscious fashion'. The need for the fashion industry to become more self-aware and sustainable is now just as important to fashionistas as the need to look good – and big brands are starting to listen. Through sustainable multi-use products, recycling and ethical production, companies are now delivering beautiful garments, without creating a mass-scale carbon footprint. So join the movement and support collections like H&M’s new Conscious range – which utilises sustainable materials and environmentally-friendly processes to create guilt-free, on-trend clothing. Print shirt R899; print trousers, R1 199; both H&M Limited-edition Conscious Collection. IF YOU ONLY BUY 1 THING... Feeling a bit blah? Liven up your mood and your wardrobe this winter with a few colour-pop accessories – and where…
