While we are celebrating the rise of summer in South Africa, I know that many of you are probably in winter somewhere in the northern hemisphere. But can you believe how fast this year went by? I am still surprised and feel like I have a lot to complete before the new year.

If you have been following my blog, by now you know that I’m also a fashion designer. I own a swimwear company called Shweshwekini Active Wear and summer is definitely my season.

I have been fortunate enough to have been featured in many magazines so far and partnered with a few brands. I have come across a few things that I’m loving this summer and I have shared on the list below.

What I’m loving this summer

Obviously I’m loving my own brand and the new collection this summer. I have also started working on my ecommerce site (shweshwekini.com) and it should be up and running soon, so you can start purchasing some pieces.


I came across this brand on instagram (@allurebeautyandlifestyle). Allure makes personalised hats and bags, perfect for travelling. What is nice is that they have something for both adults and kids. If you are thinking of matching with your child this summer or next summer, then definitely try their products out. They truly have the best quality in the market. I even got one for my mom and my little sister, so we can match!

Summer Lovin’ with Vriesenhof Wines

I have partnered with Vriesenhof wines this summer and they have supplied me with a LOT of wine which will ensure that I do not miss a sip this summer. So catch me by the pool and join me on my Vriesenhof experience.


Kirstenbosch Summer Concerts -Tresor

If you have never been to one of the summer concerts, then this summer is definitely your chance. I can finally say that I attended a summer concert and I thoroughly enjoyed myself. I even met Tresor !

If you are in Cape Town this summer, then you have the whole of summer to book your tickets ASAP because the line up is pretty lit and tickets are selling out quicker at every concert. Don’t miss out!

I hope you enjoyed this post and that your summer is equally as eventful as mine. Comment below and tell me what you are loving this summer, I’d love to know!

Take care
