the only constant is change

Mid-year already. Can you believe it? This time of the year usually comes with a lovely rhythm to the days and weeks. It’s a comforting time for contemplation, especially now with the colder weather, when fireplaces and red wine beckon. But we know that predictability is a thing of the past. Nowadays we can only expect change. What we hadn’t anticipated is that the rate of change would keep increasing at the pace it currently is. How many of you are hooked to your devices following breaking news? Yet, it’s still difficult to keep up with current events. As with hemlines, the correct and fashionable height of heels, and weather patterns. There is little time for thoughtful reflection, and certainly not enough time to withdraw from it all. It’s with that thought…

what a gem

What is your definition of beauty and what is your skincare routine? It’s summed up in one word: ease. I also always say kindness over Botox. No treatment can hide bitterness or cruelty. I have always been good at removing my make-up and taking the time for my skin – it’s a self-care ritual. Recently I have been spoilt, as I have become one of the Sisley Paris brand ambassadors, a brand I truly admire and have lusted after, so now my routine is quite luxe and smells wonderful, too. What are your go-to beauty spoils? I believe in investing in good skincare products that are long-lasting and make me feel cared for. The Black Rose Cream Mask is a dreamy boost that energises your skin in just 15 minutes, with plumping, soothing…

celebrating queer identities

The Great Lakes region is one of the most beautiful expanses in Africa, with art, culture and natural beauty in abundance. But for all its splendour, the area is still burdened with archaic laws, especially relating to queer identities. With daily violence and discrimination against many LGBT people, there is often very little to celebrate. But documentary photographer Frédéric Noy captures the brave and beautiful people of Uganda, Rwanda and Burundi in what can be considered a true celebration of queerness. Documenting daily life, the photographs explore identity, beauty and sexuality while celebrating the stories of the people at the forefront of the fight for change – those like Kasha Nabagesera, the famed LGBT activist, photographed here in a dazzling array of colours. Visit Fredericnoy.com to see more of Frédéric’s…

hold the phone

FAIR MOVE LYNETTE BOTHA I’m an anxious person by nature. I always feel like I’m on the back foot and suffer from social anxiety. This is not always apparent on the surface. I’m one of those strange ‘extroverted-introvert’ types of people. And a ringing phone puts the fear of God in me. I used to think that this was an extremely irrational fear – that I was the only one suffering with this affliction. Not so. A willy-nilly poll around the office shows that out of around 15 of us, only three people don’t feel the same way. Add to that the countless articles – from Forbes to The Guardian – that try to elucidate why millennials are so afraid of speaking on the phone, and I think it’s fair to surmise that…
