Izelle Hoffman has a pie recipe for us this week!

Every week Izelle Hoffman joins us to speak about mindfulness, living well and eating even better! This week Izelle is helping us use our last 4 weeks to become the best version of ourselves!

It's December 1st, in the most difficult year we've had, and that means a few weeks left to set ourselves up for 2021. We could also use the next few weeks to make 2020 the year we hoped this one would be!

To get us in the December spirit, Izelle is sharing one of her favourite recipes with us - a salted caramel date and pecan pie!

In our Beautiful News story this week - Beautiful News!

Beautiful News is a global news platform that publishes one positive short film every day of the year. They are dedicated to unearthing inspiring, uplifting, and authentic voices that reflect the good in humanity, as well as the beauty of global destinations and our natural world.

Beautiful News launched in South Africa on 1 November 2016. Since inception, they've shared positive micro-documentary content at 4:14pm daily, in recognition of the moment that Nelson Mandela was released from prison. In honour of his legacy, they are reframing our world for the betterment of nature and humankind.

They gather stories by keeping a pulse on individuals and organisations that are making a positive impact through their ideas, actions, initiatives and contributions. This diverse set of inspirational narratives collectively showcases humanity’s inherent goodness.

Beautiful News offers a platform to amplify their message because they believe that together, we are stronger. It’s these stories that will unite us as we create a global community committed to positive action and change.

Bianca Blanc on her latest single!

She's young, she's talented, and she's driven to succeed, all the things that make a long and successful career in the music industry an attainable goal.
With her first few releases in English making waves, Bianca has decided to shift direction and write and record in her home language - Afrikaans!

I caught up with this incredible writer and recording artist over a Zoom to chat about how 2020 has been for her, her first Afrikaans album, and where to from here!

Tamara Dey on lockdown, hair, and everything else in 2020

This year has been a difficult year for everyone. Around the world various levels of lockdown have pulled families apart, ended careers, and stopped everyone in their tracks! Our South African artists have been no different! With the industry shutting down for what feels like years, very few artists have had the ability to create or earn an income.

I spoke to Tamara Dey, one of South Africa's most prolific artists and an icon in her own right, about lockdown, momming in lockdown, and recording and releasing her first completely independent single!

You have a super power!

Well, according to our life, business and executive coach, Jason Bernic, we all have one, but its not what you think! In our podcasts, we've covered a range of topics, from business to love and kids and everything in between, this week Jason Bernic is reminding us that 'with great power, comes great responsibility'.

If you're lost, don't worry, I was too! But give this a listen and you'll know what your super power is soon enough!

Izelle Hoffman is sharing wisdom and Chia Seeds

Each week our mindfulness lifestyle chef, Izelle Hoffman, shares a recipe from her book, some mindful living tips, and just some love and encouragement to be the best YOU, you can be!

This week is no exception! Izelle is back and sharing a summery recipe, some great lifestyle advice, and how to remain, renew or find that last 2020 spurt of motivation!

This week we are talking Chia seeds! These magical little seeds are packed full of goodness and life, but, don't take my word for it, Izelle will explain:

Mondays always mean 'Good Things'

Brent Lindeque is our resident 'Good Things Guy' and he always bring us the most heartwarming news from across the country! This week, he and I take a break from playing with our new toys (that we pre-ordered and paid for) to bring you some of the best news from around the country!

From a local cinema group rewriting the rules to Netflix celebrating mothers, Brent Lindeque has it all!

The natural hair advocate untangling stigma and instilling self-love

Celine Bocks is not a hairstylist, but a healer.

For decades of South Africa’s history, natural hair was stigmatised and treated as inferior. People of colour are still impacted by this today.

“Growing up with kinky hair was a difficult journey because people are just looking down at you,” Bocks says. Now, she’s fighting back with the most powerful weapon – love.

Bocks started the Citrusdal Natural Hair Beauties group with her sister to instil dignity and worth in her community. Through this initiative, Bocks offers workshops where girls are taught how to nurture their hair.

“The best hair is healthy hair,” she says. Untangling harmful perceptions, Bocks is sending lies about cultural identity down the drain and helping youth embrace themselves.

Albert Frost on his new single, surviving lockdown, and 'Husse Met Lang Ore'

He's one of the most well known and loved voices in the music world, having spent over 20 years on stages and in studios gifting us with music!
And this year, the journey continues! Albert Frost is still here and still working on music for you and I in 2021!

Having spent lockdown like the rest of us - he is ready to get back onto stages and into studios to get us all up and jamming again! I spoke to him via Zoom to chat about his new single, 'I'm Still Here', and to finally get an answer to a question I have been searching for - for 35 years! Does he answer it? Find out here:

Carrot cake for breakfast? Izelle says yes!

Our award winning lifestyle chef - Izelle Hoffman, is giving us all the permission we need to love ourselves, our bodies, and celebrate the December holidays with cake for breakfast! Carrot Cake, that is! Well, not in the general sense! Izelle is sharing her Mindful Eating Carrot Cake Breakfast Biscuit recipe with us! And this one is sure to be a hit!

In this week's recipe, you can have your cake and eat it - any time of day!

Deon Dee is back with a new Afrikaans single!

After spending the last 12-ish months re-evaluating and resetting, Deon Dee is back and stronger than ever!

Ready to tackle what life has to throw at him and launching a new single - I caught up with the musician and producer over a Zoom where he got very candid about his life and his struggles with mental illness, saying that at one point he almost stopped playing music altogether!

Thankfully, for us, after a break and speaking to a therapist, Deon decided it was time to come back, on his own terms, and spoke to me about the music, the process, and his hair! Listen here:

The World of Birds on their brand new single!

The World of Birds came to life in 2019 when the McCarthy brothers, Conor (Producer) and Ben (Producer), linked up with Nic Preen (Songwriter) to form the band behind the launch of Preen’s solo career.

However, the collaboration took them on a different path. Not long into their work together, the decision was made to merge as a band, launching The World of Birds.

Almost immediately, they set out on a tour away from their home base in Cape Town, locally in South Africa and in Europe, opening for Beatenberg and A-Ha, as well as listing on the Triple J and Apple Music’s Today at Apple playlist. I got to chat to lead singer Nic Preen about the band, lockdown, and everything in between!
