Five visa-free countries for South Africans to visit

Ireland

This beautiful country, otherwise known as the emerald isle, is a real gem. Although there are quite a few rainy days, the rest definitely makes up for it! The people are warm and friendly, the food is amazing and Ireland’s natural wonders are a must see. Dublin is an amazing city with a great vibe; enjoy it with a pint of Guinness! 

New Zealand

This amazing country is far to travel to, but so worth it! New Zealand has everything from beaches to mountains to sunshine and snow, so it has a little something for everyone. Possibly the coolest attraction is Hobbiton, where parts of the movies The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings were made. 

Thailand

Think sun, sand and cocktails! When you imagine a beach holiday, Thailand is definitely one of the destinations that come to mind. With its tropical feel, markets, amazing ocean and many beaches; this is a great place to visit for that much needed getaway. 

Brazil

This colourful and vibrant country is a big attraction to many people each year! A must-see in this country is the Christ the Redeemer statue, and a must-do is one of the many colourful festivals. Football fans will feel at home as the sport is very popular here! 

Singapore

This island lies just off of Malaysia and has a tropical climate. It is great for shopping; whether high street or markets and customer service here is excellent. Clean streets, friendly people and shopping; what more do you need?

I think it's time for my next holiday!

25 ways to avoid the mall this Christmas

We all hate it. And we all do it. Last-minute Christmas shopping! It is the worst, and people are the worst. We are the worst.

But, I'm going to share some sage words from my sister a few weeks ago:

It's  a no-brainer, people. Look no further for your Christmas shopping. There are beautiful things for every taste and budget, right on this website. But don't believe me - go see for yourself.

So yes. Today is Tuesday, which means it's newsletter day! As we mentioned before, subscribing to our newsletter is a good way to stay ontop of sales, giveaways, freebies and special discount codes! Here's a little 40%-er from this week's newsletter:

Today we mostly featured things with a general Christmassey and gifting vibe, and some holiday goodness. I've put up a taster below.

Listed up at the top is my personal favourite from Lovilee :-)

There were literally dozens and dozens more things I wanted to include (but didn't, because gmail chops off content that is too long).

Be sure to sign up, if you haven't already.
