Truth be told, I’m a terrible athlete. Remember that one kid on your school soccer team who was just so excited to have a chance to kick the ball? Remember the sheer surprise/joy everyone felt when, instead of trying and missing the ball like he normally did, his boot actually connected and that ball went flying? That was me. Once, I scored a goal and was one step away from stopping the entire game and starting a full-on dance break; luckily for everyone my dear sweet coach shouted ‘That’s it! Now get back in the game!’ quickly enough for me to come back down to earth. Mostly. I stuck it out for a few years and managed to become a decent defender, but neither my heart nor my feet were really…

the hit list

it’s all in the wrist

As far as I’m concerned, if you’re going to wear a smartwatch it should be because it offers you something an ordinary watch can’t. For some, it’s to stay on schedule and get subtle reminders that it’s time to end whatever meeting-that-could-have-been-an-email you’re stuck in ASAP. But if staying active is your focus – and if you’ benefit from having a regular motivator – go for a FitBit. The new Versa (short for ‘versatile’) is a top-notch fitness tracker in the body of a slick, ‘squircle’-shaped, lightweight smartwatch. As FitBit’s second take on a smartwatch, the Versa packs an all-new dashboard that simplifies access to your health and fitness data. All of the usual smartwatch stuff is here, too, like customisable clock faces, phone notifications, 2.5GB of onboard music storage and…

Too long have we thought of cognac as the drink for the individual – that cognac is for the ‘him’ or ‘her’ who excels and pushes the status quo. What about the rest of us? ‘THEM.’ The collective of like-minded individuals that thrive together. Some call them friends, some call them family, but ultimately, these people come together as a result of their shared values. Moments filled with people you care about give us a sense of comfort, familiarity and most importantly, you can be yourself. From going on a friends’ road trip and sharing Sunday lunch to celebrating graduations and career successes, these moments are unforgettable. Bisquit Cognac is made with the spirit of sharing in mind. Founded in 1819, the House of Bisquit Cognac was born in the heart of France, from…

charting his own course

I have a greater understanding of what I want, now more than ever before,’ says Cape Town-based singer-songwriter Chad Saaiman. ’My sound has evolved not only with the selection of new and talented producers I work with, but also in terms of the concepts and content of my releases.’ Saaiman began establishing his R&B/pop sound with the release of his debut album, Chasing Melodies, in 2009 (but some fans might remember Saaiman’s appearance on the first season of Idols South Africa in 2002). The commercially successful release went on to receive a South African Music Award nomination for Best Pop Album: English. Now, shortly after dropping his EP Future Forever in 2017, Saaiman is gearing up for another album release this year. ‘I haven’t released an album in four years and I…
