Financial emigration from South Africa is often seen as something complicated and stressful.
Many people wonder if it’s even necessary to do, and there is so much misinformation and scare-mongering happening at the moment, so I wanted to write about some of the benefits of financial emigration to put the record straight.
Madiba The Musical is coming to Australia!
The hit show premiered in France in early 2016 and is now embarking on a brand new production tour across Australia.
In the year that Nelson Mandela would have been 100 years old, this is the perfect time for this show to come to our shores.
If you’ve been following me for a while, you might have seen that I love sharing awesome South African inspired businesses in Australia.
I came across Shweshwe Roots a few months ago and just love the bright, colourful designs.
It was only later I found out it was owned by South African born Kristin who now lives in Victoria.
I spoke to her about how she decided to bring a piece of sunny South Africa to Australia through her gorgeous jewellery.
If you’ve ever moved city or country, you’ll know just how hard it can be to settle into a new place. But just like the Boy Scouts, you can be prepared!
I’ve chatted to a few other bloggers in Australia who’ve made the move down under from all over the world and got their insider tips for migrants on how to settle into a new life in Australia.
After 3 consecutive years of sell-out events, Boktown Perth is back in 2018!
If you want to watch the Springboks take on the Wallabies on Saturday 8 September, surrounded by your fellow Bok supporters, this is going to be the place to be!
I’ve seen a lot of people asking how to start a business in Australia lately.
It’s actually not that hard, depending on the kind of business you want to start. I started my own business in 2016 as a digital marketing freelancer in Perth, and I’m proud to say it’s growing from strength to strength.
So I thought it might be useful to write this post for those of you who are wondering about how to start a business in Australia but have no idea where to even begin.
One of the first things on our to-do list after we settled into life in Perth was to visit the Swan Valley. So I thought it was about time I put together a list of Swan Valley wineries you need to visit.
There are so many wineries and produce stores to visit where you can sample and purchase wine, cheese, fruit, preserves, sauces, honey, and heaps more. For the sake of this post, I’ll stick to my favourite wineries in the Swan Valley, as otherwise we could be here all day!
I must say I have not visited all of the wineries in the Swan Valley – I think it would take me a while to work my way around them all, but I’ll give it a damn good try!
This list is purely based on my own tastebuds and experiences at the cellar door.
Last month when we were in South Africa, I rediscovered the joys of the tuisnywerheid! I’m sure you all remember the shops selling homemade treats and handmade products? At the time I wished we could have our very own tuisnywerheid in Perth and I posted that on the Proudly South African In Perth Facebook page.
Lo and behold, someone commented and told me all about a brand new business, The 2 Tarts, who are doing just that! I got in touch with them to find out all about their awesome tuisnywerheid in Perth!
Last month I got to tick off one of the most exciting items on my bucket list – a proper South African game reserve experience. After years of researching and patiently waiting for our trip, we eventually got to experience a stay at what I think is one of the best private game reserves in South Africa – Nambiti Private Game Reserve in Kwa-Zulu Natal.
There are 9 different lodges to choose from within Nambiti, and I’d had my eye on Ndaka Safari Lodge for a long, LONG time! After what seemed like forever, the day finally arrived for us to check in to Ndaka.
We had THE MOST amazing time, and knowing that lots of you enjoy going back to South Africa and visiting game reserves, I just had to share our experience with you.
During my recent trip to South Africa, I was lucky to road test the brand new Safari Satchel from Herd Of Ubuntu.
For our first proper safari experience at Ndaka Safari Lodge, it was the perfect bag for our game drives. I was super impressed with this bag and others available at Herd Of Ubuntu that I wanted to share this gorgeous business with you.
Herd Of Ubuntu carries a range of ethically sourced, handmade leather bags, accessories, and Nguni cowhide rugs, all made in South Africa and imported to Australia.
The face behind this operation is the lovely Camilla, who lives in Sydney. It’s not only Herd Of Ubuntu that keeps her super busy, but she also has 2 young toddlers and an analyst role at a boutique fund manager in the city.
I chatted to Camilla about Herd Of Ubuntu and her deep-rooted connections to Africa. She’s also offered my readers a special discount
