Get fresh, get local and get gro-ing. Oh, and get gin.
LOVE YOUR LOCALE
If lockdown resulted in too many pizzas, pastas and unwanted kilo’s, show your body and your local restaurateur some overdue love. We’re fans of Cape Town’s popular LAZARI BISTRO & CAFÉ, especially the selection of salads (tried & tasted!). Why? Because everything LAZARI BISTRO & CAFÉ makes, is made with the freshest ingredients and a whack of love. Whether curbside collection, order in, or sociable sit-down, the choice is now entirely yours!

Prepared by hand, and made from Non-GMO seeds, handmade paper and recycled coffee grounds, GRO-URBAN Seed Squares make gardening eco and user-friendly!
BEHIND THE MASK

MITIGATE THE RISK
With frequent visits to the barbershop for a quick shave not as ‘carefree’ as they once were, guys are upping their home-grooming skills.

This beauty also features a trimmer for tackling tricky areas and shaping sideburns, moustaches, goatees and more. You’ll soon be shaving like a pro.

IN YOUR STRIDE
While you’ve likely been getting away with your holey favourites around the house during lockdown, may we suggest giving your sock selection an overhaul before stepping back into the ‘real’ world.
Our favourites? The FALKE Retro Crew athleisure sock. And now also available in an ethereal blue, easy to pair mid-grey and a kickass pink!
Falke Retro Crew socks are available in 10 colour variations, in sizes 4-7/ 8-12 and retail for R85 per pair.
Introducing the delightfully floral Hendrick’s Gin limited-edition “Midsummer Solstice”, inspired by nature’s most vivid bouquets, the carefully curated expression sees the original Hendrick’s recipe instilled with a secret selection of floral essences that enhance the liquid’s existing botanical bouquet.
The result – an enchantingly floral and exquisitely refreshing gin that blossoms on the palate while remaining unmistakably Hendrick’s. Serve with flair and confidence.
