Its a new year and most of us have started work already. The relaxation of the festive season and holidays seem like a distant memory, and you’re already wanting a timeout from it all, so why not pop into McQueens Boutique Spa and Blostyle Bar in Sea Point. Kerry and I popped in just before Christmas for a little R&R and a good pamper session before the festive season hit us.

This one stop beauty destination really lives up to its name with a huge array of premium services on offer from manicures and pedicures (using Nailberry L’Oxygen London ‘5 chemical free breathable nail polish), spray tans, massages to specialized skin treatments (some products used Mesoestetic, QMS products, Eco Diva and Dermalogica) and a fabulous dry bar, that leaves you feeling beautiful and pampered. McQueens spa prides itself in only using and stocking cruelty free, natural and organic (where possible) brands and products – which we are all for. They even offer luxurious ‘waterless-less’ manicures and pedicures to assist in their water-saving efforts.

I had the 60 minute Dermalogica facial which was heavenly and my skin felt so amazing and hydrated afterwards. Kerry, during her pregnancy (and partly post pregnancy) had hormones that reaked havoc on her skin and unfortunately was left with a little pigmentation. Not the easiest of skin woes to treat. At McQueens she opted for the QMS Pigment Corrector. This was the first time she experienced QMS products but her skin felt beautiful afterwards – she didn’t feel the need to reapply make up as soon as she walked out which can often be the case post facial when you feel exposed. QMS uses collagen to repair the skin and help with its appearance. She definitely left McQueens with a glow, and the picture below post facial and sans make-up speaks for itself.

You can find McQueens Boutique Spa, shop 4, 77 Regent Road, Sea point, Cape Town. Contact: 021 434 2468 / 082 738 7636

We always get excited when we find a new way to slim down before summer and we couldn’t be happier that we found 3-in-1 Liposlim in Greenpoint 🙂 It’s called 3-in-1 Liposlim because there are 3 parts to the treatment being the InBody analysis, the Laser Lipo treatments and then their home care range which is quite fabulous.

So in keeping with the Meat Free Monday theme we’re bringing you another homemade meat free recipe that you could give a try at home that is quick and easy. We thought a soup would be a nice addition for this chilly weather. This recipe is from the website Café Johnsonia by Lindsey Johnson, it is delicious and super easy.

There is nothing better than finding a market that has tasty food, good music and a great location. Luckily in Cape Town we are spoilt for choice when it comes to markets, so I thought I would highlight a few in and around the Cape that I love.

The Oranjezicht City Farm Market is no new kid on the block and has been around for quite some time, this however was my first time and I cannot believe I didn’t go sooner. Located in Granger Bay, V&A Waterfront next to The Lookout event venue, it’s the ideal setting for this market as it overlooks the bay, is in walking distance from public transport and has loads of parking. What’s also really fantastic about this market is that it gives local farmers and artisanal food producers a platform to sell and showcase their produce. #localislekker
