• “For instance, local South African blogger and Instagrammer @candibod gets it. Candice is the clean-eating, exercise-freak with a healthy following of 23,6k users. Her high level of active engagement (she replies to every comment individually, answers questions, likes and follows back) and obvious passion for fitness and health has attracted some major South African brands. She is powerful micro-influencer for Adidas SA and Cotton On, as well as Sweat 1000 and Wazoogles, and has also gone on to team up with brands such as Gilette, Venus, and many others. Candice posts easy recipes next to images of delectable plates of food in between lifestyle shots and the occasional motivational quote. Her humble attitude (and love for ice-cream) make every follower feel like a friend. This is what connecting brands to customers in 2017 is all about.”

  • On the 17th of January I was asked to create two recipes which included ingredients that help release endorphin’s. With my favorite flavors in mind, I decided to stick to what I know best (healthy alternatives) and make a simple bad-ass smoothie and dark chocolate bites.

  • Last week I had the pleasure of being apart of the Cotton On Body in store shop for their December range, I mean what more could a girl ask for?

    After a warm welcome form the Cotton On Body team, we were given the go ahead to shop for a few outfits that we would then shoot afterwards with the talented Tegan Smith. Its funny how you would think having no limit to your shop would make things easy, but it was the complete opposite! Cotton On Body has SERIOUSLY step up to the consumer plate; from styles to colors they have it all!



    After an hour or so, my indecisive self had finally agreed on the garments I was NOT prepared to leave behind. With both hands full of hangers I made my way to the changing room, with a smile so big you would have thought I was about to head off on a Caribbean cruise. Not only was the excitement of a shoot with one of my favorite Cape Town photographers sinking in, but all the clothes fit perfectly!

    Now on that note; being a lady with some simple curves I can still relate with ladies who go to stores and worry about active wear not fitting their body type (and those god awful changing room mirrors with lighting made for Victoria Secret models), but that’s one thing you do not have to worry about with Cotton On Body’s fits. Their range has kept every shape and size in mind, and they ensure all Cotton On Body ladies are well thought of and looked after.

    No matter your size or shape Cotton On Body has your back, or in this case your boody.

  • So what do you get when you combine a group of foodies, fitness and fashion lovers? Well you get one heck of a girl-gang! That’s what’s up.


    On the 4th October a group of influencers met on one of Cape Town’s finest summer days, to view Cotton On Body’s Summer range. After a very early start training my clients I was beyond excited to get to my daycation with Cotton On Body, and soon to be local girl-gang.

    Being new to the blogging world I was admittedly a little nervous to be around some of my favorite influences, however a few minutes into the event it was evident that there was no reason to feel this way.


    Once everyone had arrived, and grabbed some of the yummy snacks we headed to the viewing rooms that showcased all their new lines. Let me just say, that leaving girls in a room covered in clothes with the sentence “We will just leave you here to try on the garments and play around”, was possibly the best news since avo’s came back in season.

    Excitement running high, we soon were hustled up stairs to our yoga session that could only be explained as a dream after hours of personal training beforehand.


    So, the iPhones left the room and the golden yoga mat was laid out. It was now our time to unwind, and what better way to do that in some Cotton On Body wear am I right?

    Once we had been instructed through the session, we wrapped up with some more treats and frantically exchanged digits until our next meetup. I left feeling content, comfortable and significantly girl ganged.

About Me

So take a girl with the energy of a greyhound stuck behind a desk for too many years who gave it all up to pursue a more fulfilling life centered around her passion for health and fitness. That rather convoluted sentence sums me up.
