Look at this blog – isn’t it neat?

You’d think my life experiences are complete.

Wouldn’t you think I’m the gir, the girl who’s tried everyting?

I’ve tried gadgets and menus aplenty.

I have read and bought goodies galore.

What’s my favourite gin? I’ve got plenty!

But who cares?

No big deal – I want more!


A little poetic licence and a nod to the wonderful songwriters Howard Elliott Ashman and Alan Menken.

I hope you experience Syllable in the City as a treasure trove of delight: good food, great cars, amazing accommodation, and always, gin.

Everything I publish here I have tried or experienced myself, or I believe would be of value to my readers. Sometimes brands send me stuff, sometimes they pay me, sometimes I write from a personal, unsponsored experience. I will always let you know when something was gifted or paid for.

My promise to my readers is to always be authentic and truthful.

If you are a brand or PR person who would like to get in touch, please contact me on syllabl@syllableinthecity.

PLEASE NOTE: I’m based in Johannesburg and have a predominantely female audience. Please keep this in mind when contacting me to attend events.
