hit and kiss

I once kissed a woman on the nose. At an event, in front of both of our bosses. She was easily 20 years my senior, and was the very picture of grace and elegance; definitely someone I was aiming to impress. And I kissed her on the nose. Exuberant hellos were exchanged, and then she moved in for a cheek kiss, which we successfully executed, no sweat. But then it seemed as if we were about to the upgrade the single- into a double-cheek kiss (or so I thought), and so I turned my head to do so, right as she dipped hers, and my very confused lips landed squarely on her nose. We laughed about it afterwards, and if nothing else, she’ll never forget me – but…

belle lucia

For someone who’s pictured almost daily against a backdrop of sand and sea, Australian beauty Belle Lucia manages to squeeze surprisingly little leisure time into her loaded schedule. ‘I don’t get many days off, but when I do, I feel a bit anxious because I’m a workaholic,’ laughs the Sydney-based model, who owes her captivating looks, in part, to her half-German, half-Portuguese heritage.Scouted at the age of 14, Lucia has long been comfortable in front of a camera lens. But she only turned her attention to full-time modelling more recently, since completing her studies in nursing – a field she pursued out of a desire to ‘help someone every day’. With a real flair for Instagram, she’s fast become Australia’s one to watch, and she’s taken to this role…

host with the most

‘JUGGLING EVERYTHING IS HONESTLY ONE OF THE MOST DIFFICULT THINGS’ If we could all wake up with the kind of outrageous energy that Katlego Maboe does, the coffee industry would probably collapse. As a long-standing host of SABC3 breakfast show Expresso, Maboe has, for years, been the first grinning face many South Africans see on weekday mornings, and his wit and enthusiasm have served him well in his field. By the age of 31, he’s earned the status of Presenter of the Year twice at the South African Film and Television Awards, interviewed the likes of Michael Bublé and Kofi Annan, travelled far and wide, and hosted other popular TV series, including Strictly Come Dancing.It’s a good thing then that Maboe, a B.Com graduate, didn’t ultimately pursue,…
