A new year brings with it the hope of re-imagining the canvas that is our lives. Most of us are still auditing the ways we do things, focusing on how we can infuse more joy into our lived experiences. One trick I’ve found for quick upliftment is the introduction of colour into my space and, of course, with beautiful things. Life is too short not to surround yourself with beautiful things, and in our first edition of the year, we look at all things new, bright and beautiful! Think special additions you can make to your beauty and grooming arsenal or picturesque escapes along the Aegean Sea.
Those who know me, know I love an art fair, and one of the best, the Investec Cape Town Art Fair, is the ultimate kick-off to the year’s art offerings. While in the Mother City, be sure to also check out the new members-only bar, The Queens, which owner Yossi Schwarts spoke exclusively to us about. We also spoke to talented Nigerian designer, Bubu Ogisi, whose work continues to make waves.
As I re-imagine my personal canvas this year, I will be taking up a new venture in Dubai. I have relished the opportunity to help set up YourLuxury Africa as we continue to herald in a new way of looking at and experiencing luxury. Despite still being new players on the scene, I have no doubt that the formidable team that makes up this exciting lifestyle platform will take it to even greater heights. As I sign-off, special editions editor, Ingrid Wood, will act as the interim editor. I have no doubt that her vast experience and industry-leading ways will see the brand in great hands. Thanks to all of you who have shown immense support to YourLuxury Africa so far. We hope to continue to make this the go-to luxury platform on the continent. Let’s make 2023 and beyond our strongest yet!
