I’ve never been into the idea of fad diets - to me, a diet should be a lifestyle choice, and after many years of working in health-focused journalism (and plenty of time spent researching and learning about health, fitness, and nutrition myself) I’ve long believed that looking for a quick fix doesn’t work. However, I am also aware that my genetics don’t d...

We have all stood there, at the start of something new, with the adventure beckoning and the excitement literally pounding in our chest. But there are only a few of us who have placed their feet behind the starting line at an Olympic event - and even fewer who have made it past the finish line.

I know, I haven't blogged for a long time, so let's just get that out of the way now. Warning: It’s a long post. What can I say, I’ve got several months’ worth of blah-blahs to make up for.

The practical reason for it is that I was, honestly, just incredibly busy. I work a full-time day job for 40-50+ hours a week. I’ve been spending a lot of time studying...

Here's three things I learned about Georgian people during my trip to Batumi, a beautiful coastal town in Georgia where the beaches are lined with pebbles and the air is filled with the salty scent of the Black Sea.

1) They really know how to enjoy life. Here, life is meant to be a pleasure: Drink the wine. Stop and smell the roses. Bask in the sunshine. S...

I honestly can't remember the first time I ever travelled alone. Perhaps it's because I grew as the child of an expat life - I took my first-ever flight when I was younger than the age of three, although obviously I was accompanied by my parents then! - and, as a third-culture kid born to two parents who weren't of straight-shot ethnic origins themselves,...

#MeToo.

For the time I stood in a crowd and had a man press himself up against me, feeling his hot and unwelcome breath on the back of my neck as he tried to place his hands on me, so that even after I turned to face and stop him and the coward bolted, I took four showers in a row in the hottest water I could stand when I went home that night. I still felt...

When you think of the stereotype of the fitness junkie and that of the tech geek, they're hardly a pair that go hand in hand. Yet the two have long been interlinked, with technology playing a much bigger role in sports than some people might initially think. Sure, the varsity jock and AV nerd depicted in most high school coming-of-age movies would certain...

Saying no to the idea of a traditional career path with an office-based full-time job takes guts, but for 28-year-old pastry cook Michelle Harvey, it's paying off. "My life feels like one big side hustle; however, food and health are the focus of all [of my] ventures," she says. During half the week, Michelle works as a pastry cook at Eat Well Restaurant....

When you're going to a garden that was once owned by Yves Saint Laurent, you know it's going to be good. This 12-acre botanical garden is a place of fantasy. Designed by French artist Jacques Majorelle then later owned by fashion designer Yves Saint Laurent (like we need an introduction as to who that is!), Jardin Majorelle is probably one of the most whi...

It’s not every day that you meet someone with a degree in hops and brewing, or that you’d put the words “beer” and “cocktails” into the same sentence, but that’s just what we got when we met Brent Henderson, the Beer Brand Specialist at African and Eastern.

The 28-year old was born in Zimbabwe and grew up in Cape Town, South Africa, and, in his own words,...
