If you happen to be dating a man, and you are struggling to find a gift for him this Valentine’s Day, then congratulations! You are not alone.
Happy new year! Every year, once the champagne bottles have run empty and the last remnants of the fireworks leave the sky, we’re forced to accept that a new year has begun. And with that realisation, there seems to be two trains of thought with regards to how to accept that: overwhelming hope filled with new years resolutions, or the understanding that new years is a social construct, nothing has really changed and that new years resolutions are pointless.

Right around this time, just like many other students, I find myself moving into a new space – be it an apartment or a new residence room – and I want to find a way to make this place feel like home. Luckily, I’m moving into an apartment this year so I get a bit more creative freedom, but a lot of the inspiration below can be applicable to those of you in res as well. And for those on more of a student budget, Superbalist is currently having a massive sale and has offers going all the time! Check out their apartment deals here.
Apart from health reasons, my family ties to the UK have always had me leaning towards being a tea-person rather than a coffee-person. And lately, with the growing wave of coffee culture rocking the shores of Cape Town, I won’t lie and say I’ve been feeling a little left out. Decaf coffee just doesn’t taste right and most cafes have a dismal tea collection of five roses English breakfast, rooibos tea and maybe green and chai tea if you’re lucky.
