Glamour (South Africa) - - Glamour Head Out -

Amaz­ingly sit­u­ated at the top floor of a con­tem­po­rary low-rise with 360˚ views of Cape Town’s iconic Ta­ble Moun­tain, Lion’s Head, sparkling ocean and har­bour, East City Stu­dios is famed for its out­stand­ing events in­clud­ing SKYY Vodka’s El­e­vated Ex­pe­ri­ence 2015, the launch of the 2015 Opel Adam car range and this year’s glam­our and Tre­semmé reader hair show.

The stu­dio’s dy­namic de­sign in­cludes a wrap­around bal­cony, two swim­ming pools and ex­posed steel trusses. Plus, masses of nat­u­ral light from the dou­ble sky lights make it per­fect for ed­i­to­rial shoots, fash­ion shows and art exhibitions.

The warmer weather will in­spire you to sit out­doors at this so­phis­ti­cated spot, with its large white um­brel­las and stylish wooden fur­ni­ture. Try the ox­tail and mar­row frit­ters (R72) and mini boerie rolls (R75) to start, fol­lowed by the lamb shank bunny chow (R175) and ap­ple crum­ble (R55) to end.

For a chilled out­door din­ing ex­pe­ri­ence with spec­tac­u­lar views of the city, head to Higher Ground (lit­er­ally!). Choose from a large menu of sim­ple, hearty and af­ford­able dishes, like the seafood paella (R155) and beef fillet tower with potato cro­quets and gar­lic snails (R185).

The Wild Fig’s beau­ti­ful 18th cen­tury farm­house and glo­ri­ous out­door gar­den set­ting would not be out of place in the winelands – and nei­ther would its fine­din­ing menu. We rec­om­mend shar­ing the char­cu­terie plat­ter (R95) as a starter, and then mov­ing on to the crispy roast duck (R165) or but­ter chicken curry (R120) for mains. And as for dessert, the choco­late fon­dant (R48) will not dis­ap­point.

Ca­reer changes to come Watch your bud­get and try not to overspend as fi­nan­cial changes are about to hit you. Your job sees you fre­quently go­ing over­seas as well as pos­si­bly pick­ing up new skills which will help ad­vance your ca­reer greatly. Your re­la­tion­ship is har­mo­nious at the mo­ment and plan­ning to go trav­el­ling to­gether is a good idea. Sin­gle? Ex­pect to meet some­one for­eign through your trips abroad. This could oc­cur around 2-3 and 29-30 Novem­ber. Re­main open-minded to all the pos­si­bil­i­ties.

Aquarius Work goes smoothly There are great op­por­tu­ni­ties that lie ahead with re­gards to your job. If given the op­tion to travel for work pur­poses, take it. You may also be of­fered op­por­tu­ni­ties to study and en­hance your skills and knowl­edge. Love wise, look out for a charm­ing Leo who’ll sweep you off your feet, or an in­tense Scorpio who’ll rock your world. In a re­la­tion­ship? Your part­ner may help you make ma­jor ca­reer de­ci­sions. On a health note, stick to car­dio­vas­cu­lar work­outs – both at the gym and un­der the cov­ers – for ton­ing.

em­ini Ex­pect op­por­tu­ni­ties Fam­ily mem­bers may start to med­dle in your fi­nan­cial af­fairs. Don’t let this bother you, but keep all im­por­tant in­for­ma­tion to your­self. You’re re­build­ing a life for your­self with your ca­reer, so ex­plore all your op­tions and try on dif­fer­ent shoes un­til the right one fits. If you’re sin­gle, you won’t be for long! Look out for some­one who works in ed­u­ca­tion or speaks and teaches a for­eign lan­guage around 1-11 Novem­ber. For the best health re­sults, stick to a diet filled with fruit, leafy greens, dairy, cit­rus, eggs and fish.

irgo Ex­press your­self Crit­i­cal de­ci­sions have to be made re­gard­ing how your money is dis­trib­uted to oth­ers, and you must con­sider all de­ci­sions wisely and ob­jec­tively. As shy as you are at times, your ca­reer needs you to be con­fi­dent and en­ter the spot­light. Your ideas are im­por­tant and you need to let them be known. Seek­ing love? You’ll catch the eye of a so­cia­ble and at­trac­tive in­di­vid­ual. If you’re in­volved, ex­pect good times to­gether in the com­pany of oth­ers. Man­age your stress by mix­ing up your rou­tine with a new work­out or phys­i­cal ac­tiv­ity.

ibra Let your light shine It’s a great month for deal­ing with cash flow or ask­ing for fi­nan­cial as­sis­tance, es­pe­cially on or around 13-14 Novem­ber. As the end of the year ap­proaches, it’s im­por­tant to look at your ca­reer and ask ques­tions on what it’s do­ing for you. You have beau­ti­ful tal­ents, and if your work isn’t al­low­ing these as­pects of your­self to shine, you need to move on. Love wise, you may break up with your part­ner if neg­a­tive be­hav­iours aren’t changed. If you’re sin­gle, a vi­brant and ath­letic Aries is starred to come your way soon.
