I STARTED WORKING OUT RECENTLY, for the first time in a long time, and for the first time with some real intention behind it. The gym always seemed like a bit of a foreign concept for me – everyone in there always looked as if they knew what they were doing. I would walk past and wonder, where are the beginners? Are they kept in a back room somewhere until they pass Gym 101? I suppose it’s not good advertising to have the not-yet-fit near the front windows – goodness knows most times my face looks like one of the Walking Dead zombies after anything particularly strenuous. That can’t be good for business. Where else, then, does a beginner go? I could have tried the plentiful fitness classes – and in a…

the beauty of blend

•THE FAMED Chateau Marmont hotel in Los Angeles now boasts its logo – a faun graphic of Pan, icon of the wild, shepherds and flocks – on ready-to-wear pieces from Italian fashion house Gucci’s Cruise 2019 collection. As Chateau Marmont’s mascot, Pan can be seen on the original fountain in the courtyard colonnade of the hotel, as well as on other amenities – likely the direct inspiration for this laundry bag turned tote. Blends make the world more interesting. Tullamore D.E.W. brings together three kinds of Irish whiskey for a blend that’s as wonderfully complex as you are. Learn more at tullamoredew.com*…

• GINA JEANZ FIRST POPPED ONTO MY RADAR ABOUT A YEAR AGO. It was around this time at Rocking the Daisies ’17 – it was my first time going and, funnily enough, it was Gina’s too. The difference was that she was performing, playing her first-ever DJ set. Jeanz has been in the music production game for about 10 years, so it’s hard to believe that it was her first gig as a DJ.

But these kinds of opportunities aren’t so much about luck as hard work, at least in Jeanz’s case. ‘I’ve put in the time,’ she says. So to be invited…

• Before Tinashe Nyamudoka arrived in Cape Town from Zim in 2008, he knew nothing about wine. When the posh Roundhouse restaurant in Camps Bay was looking for staff, he applied but admitted to having no clue about the restaurant business. Nyamudoka’s subsequent success is based on ambition, a strong work ethic, and a passion for wine. ‘Wine is my life. Without wine I wouldn’t be where I am today.’ Nyamudoka continued his wine career at Nobu and Reuben’s at the One&Only hotel. And he learnt fast. In 2013, he won the distinction of best wine steward in the Cape Legends Inter Hotel Challenge. SA’s number-one chef, Luke Dale-Roberts, later head-hunted him to become head sommelier at The Test Kitchen, one of the world’s 50 best restaurants. Nyamudoka is now one of…
