Glamour (South Africa) - - Glamour Time Out - By Elsabé Brits (Tafel­berg; R328)

Metic­u­lous re­search, in­tel­lect and pas­sion com­bine in this su­perbly de­signed biography of Emily Hob­house, the hu­man rights cam­paigner, paci­fist and fem­i­nist who de­fied con­ven­tion and saved thou­sands of lives. At the core of it all is a trunk of note­books and letters the au­thor dis­cov­ered while do­ing re­search in Canada. What bet­ter inspiration than the woman Gandhi de­scribed as “spir­i­tu­ally up­lift­ing”?

This small, laid­back eatery is only a short walk from the Umh­langa light­house and in­cludes an out­door din­ing sec­tion plus live mu­sic. Tuck into clas­sic dishes, like the O Di­ablo (cala­mari, chouriço and olives sautéed in a peri-peri sauce; R65) to start, and the paella (stir-fried rice with prawns, cala­mari, mus­sels, clams, chouriço and chicken strips; R135) for mains.

Tasca, mean­ing quaint bistro, per­fectly de­scribes this venue with its easy at­mos­phere, mo­saic de­tail­ing, washed­wood el­e­ments and ter­rific menu. We sug­gest start­ing with the Lu­las (cala­mari tubes grilled in a lemon and gar­lic sauce; R59) and mov­ing on to the Gal­inha E Ca­marão (half chicken and queen prawns grilled in a peri-peri sauce; R169).

agit­tar­ius Recharge those bat­ter­ies Mod­er­a­tion is key this month, so be wary of overex­tend­ing your­self pro­fes­sion­ally, and spend the week­end of 15-16 Oc­to­ber re­cov­er­ing lost en­ergy. This is a great time for friends and love, so don’t be afraid to spend your money on your part­ner and on get-to­geth­ers which will bring you joy. If you’re sin­gle, you’ll at­tract the kind of love you’re seek­ing through vi­su­al­i­sa­tion and via your so­cial group. Look out for a lively Li­bran. Health wise, fo­cus on your diet and mix play with ex­er­cise by work­ing out with friends who will mo­ti­vate you.

quar­ius Wel­come change A big change is ev­i­dent this month and you have a strong urge to progress in your ca­reer. Just hold back on mak­ing any ma­jor fi­nan­cial de­ci­sions or trans­ac­tions un­til 23-25 Oc­to­ber. Ro­mance is on the cards, and you could meet a light and easy-go­ing Sagit­tar­ian or Li­bran at a so­cial gath­er­ing. If you’re in a re­la­tion­ship, lov­ing mo­ments lie ahead, with the pos­si­bil­ity of trav­el­ling over­seas to­gether. You may ex­pe­ri­ence a lot of ner­vous ten­sion this month, so eat foods rich in calm­ing B vi­ta­mins, like salmon, eggs, ba­nanas and avos.

em­ini Man­age that money Seek the ad­vice of fi­nan­cial ex­perts to help you with your money, which will lead you to make smart de­ci­sions that will ben­e­fit you in the long run, es­pe­cially from 16-19 Oc­to­ber. Ca­reer changes are afoot and you could find your­self in a new workspace, and pos­si­bly even op­er­at­ing from home. When it comes to ro­mance, you’re optimistic, which will help you at­tract the right per­son – they may be a friend of a fam­ily mem­ber. If part­nered up, be­ing hon­est and straight­for­ward is key to en­sur­ing a happy fu­ture to­gether.
