    Izelle Hoffman is changing the way we live, one recipe at a time!

    When Socrates said 'Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food', he was on to something. With the world turning towards a more whole food, plant based way of living and the success of documentaries like 'The Game Changers' and 'What The Health', we are forced to take a deeper look at the food we consume and the impact it's having on our health.
    Izelle Hoffman is one of the biggest voices in the healthy living moment at this moment! She is a one woman dynamo who will have you wanting to be as healthy as she looks! Izelle was born with congenital hip dysplasia and realised at a very young age that what she ate had a massive effect on her health and wellness.She is vocal about 'mindful eating' and after having met her and being inspired by her, I had to get her into studio to chat about her life, her book, and what one thing we can change to be healthier and happier!

    If your clothes could talk, what would they say?

    If your clothes could talk, what would they say?

    Designer Balini Naidoo believes an outfit can do more than make a statement. Naidoo’s uncle is visually impaired, and she realised he struggled to identify his clothing. Choosing what to wear and reading the size and wash care details on a label can be a challenge for people who can’t see. “Fashion should be inclusive,” Naidoo says. So she began creating garments which enable people to become more self-reliant. With her range of braille apparel, she’s altering the industry.

    In 2018, Naidoo founded her eponymous line, Balini, designing clothes with a braille identification system printed on them. Each item has a pattern of raised blocks, explaining what would typically go on the label as well as the colour and style. The garments are also reversible, making them easier to wear. Naidoo’s range is as fashionable as it is practical, keeping to a minimalist aesthetic and soft tones. With a degree in Fashion and Textiles from Durban University of Technology, she’s determined to thread social responsibility into her work.

    For each purchase, Naidoo donates a percentage of the profit to the Cape Town Society for the Blind, ensuring empowerment on multiple levels. Her innovative creations prove that fashion can have a tremendous impact, while sending a message to other designers. “Continue thinking out of the box and address social challenges that are close to you,” Naidoo says. She’s the only person in South Africa creating clothing especially for people who are visually impaired. As Naidoo redefines the possibilities of her craft, she’s transforming lives. Inclusivity looks good on everyone.

    South Africa’s first black woman at Wimbledon is blazing a trail of victory

    South Africa’s first black woman at Wimbledon is blazing a trail of victory

    "Kgothatso Montjane is a big deal. She’s the first black woman South African to compete at Wimbledon – and she did it in a wheelchair. “Being a champion has always been my destiny,” she says. Montjane was born with amniotic band syndrome, a condition that prevents limbs from developing properly. At the age of 12, her lower left leg had to be amputated. But nothing could hold her back.

    Masterfully serving on the court, Montjane’s accomplishments are driven by her tenacity. “When I play tennis, I feel on top of the world,” the 33-year-old says. In 2018, her conviction propelled her to the semi-finals of the most prestigious tennis championship in the world. “My disability led me to greater achievements,” Montjane says. She also became the first African player in a wheelchair to qualify for all four Grand Slam tournaments in one year.

    “I want young women of colour to know that it doesn’t matter where you’re coming from or how you were born, as long as you have a goal in life,” Montjane says. “I am proud to be blazing the trail for the next generation of female athletes.” There’s no limit to what you’re capable of."
