2 Light­house Rd, Umh­langa; 031 514 5000

Over­look­ing the In­dian Ocean, this ca­su­alchic pool­side venue is a beau­ti­ful way to spend a sum­mer af­ter­noon. We loved the crumbed cala­mari with peanut and chilli pesto (R140) starter, while the cray­fish and monk­fish au gratin (R490) and tra­di­tional curry buf­fet (R320) are fan­tas­tic mains.

1 Seaforth Ave, Umh­lali; 032 815 0516

Take in the stun­ning view of the litchi or­chard from this eatery’s re­fur­bished shed as you delight in live mu­sic. Start with the ba­con-wrapped jalapeño pop­pers (R58) and the seared tuna with mango salsa (R154) or a prosci­utto, caramelised onion and Gor­gonzola (R105) pizza for mains.

Kil­lar­ney; 011 268 6144

Ex­pect gar­den din­ing in a grand, mod­ern set­ting at Kil­lar­ney Coun­try Club’s La Vie en Rose. Have high tea with the ladies (R265 p/p) or lunch – we rec­om­mend the sesame seed seared-beef stir-fry (R108) or the Last­ing Im­pres­sion burger (R113).

Naude Dr, Mul­der­s­drift; 087 941 1223

Open­ing out onto a scenic gar­den, Casalinga’s out­door seat­ing is ideal for sun-soaked days en­joy­ing au­then­tic Ital­ian cui­sine. Go for the pan-fried pork wrapped in Parma ham (R135) or the gnoc­chi served in a sauce of your choice (R95).

121 Beach Rd, Mouille Point; 021 433 1757

What bet­ter way to in­dulge in sen­sa­tional sushi than with the sea breeze on your face and the crash of the ocean in your ears? You’ll get all of this at the laid­back Sotano, lo­cated just across the road from the At­lantic Ocean. Re­lax on café chairs on the side­walk as you sam­ple tem­pura prawn Cal­i­for­nia rolls (R90 for eight), Asian soya salmon (R85) or seared tuna fash­ion sand­wiches (R78 for six).

Cece Mcdon­ald

Trans­gen­der ac­tivist Cece was vi­o­lently at­tacked in 2012 for be­ing trans, fought back, then was put in prison for 19 months. She turned that in­jus­tice into ad­vo­cacy for the trans­gen­der com­mu­nity. Watch her on Youtube – she has such poise and comedic tim­ing.

au­dre lorde

Poet and ac­tivist Au­dre fought for equal­ity from the 1960s un­til her death, in 1992. Her in­spir­ing quotes have the power to pull me up out of bed.

rheanne White

Hair­styl­ist She’s a close friend and an amaz­ing mother, and treats hair as it should be treated: as self-ex­pres­sion and fun.

Sh­eryl Sand­berg

CEO of Face­book In her book Lean In (Ebury Pub­lish­ing; R230), Sh­eryl gave women a con­struc­tive guide for push­ing fem­i­nism into the workspace. She also has the glossi­est hair ever. She’s like the Connie Brit­ton of the tech­nol­ogy world.

Jenni Kon­ner

Girls co-ex­ec­u­tive Jenni and I started a pro­duc­tion com­pany, A Ca­sual Ro­mance, founded on our be­lief that there aren’t enough pro­jects re-ex­am­in­ing gen­der in in­ter­est­ing ways. It seems like she has been my best friend since playschool. If she doesn’t SMS me for an hour, I think she’s dead.

Shirley Ku­rata

Stylist It took me a long time to find the peo­ple in Hol­ly­wood who un­der­stand me. Shirley and I share a sense that clothes are more than about look­ing sexy: they’re about hu­mour and cul­tural com­men­tary, and colour, colour, colour.

Megan el­li­son

Film pro­ducer Megan pro­duces dar­ing sto­ries that don’t fea­ture su­per­heroes or dumb girl­friends. Hav­ing a dear friend who is my age, fe­male and owns Hol­ly­wood like she’s Don Cor­leone has been more life-af­firm­ing than I can say.

ash­ley Ford

Writer Ash­ley and I fell in love via so­cial me­dia, and then she flew from In­di­ana to New York to meet me. We were both con­vinced that we were be­ing cat­fished. Now Ash­ley writes for Buz­zfeed, and ev­ery­one can read her pieces about gen­der, race and singer Kenny Log­gins.

Shonda rhimes

Pro­ducer of Grey’s Anatomy, The Fixer and How to Get Away with Mur­der Shonda has taken over a full freak­ing day of the week with her ad­dic­tive pro­gram­ming. She’s done it un­apolo­get­i­cally. And The Fixer has made wine and pop­corn seem like a vi­able, even healthy, meal.

Sagittarius

isces Progress is on the hori­zon Although it’s easy to get car­ried away, you now need to get se­ri­ous with your money, sit down and make a plan for your fu­ture. There is no point re­ly­ing on a part­ner to do it for you – this will only take away the free­dom you so richly de­sire. Trea­sure the work re­la­tion­ships you make right now, as peo­ple will lend a help­ing hand when times are hard. Fate is at work in your love life, so what­ever is go­ing on at the mo­ment, take it se­ri­ously. Dis­cuss any is­sues re­gard­ing sex­ual dom­i­na­tion in the bed­room with your part­ner.

19 Feb-20 Mar

ancer Re­think your fu­ture You’ll find fun, cre­ative ways to in­crease the amount of money you pull in ev­ery month, so take the time to con­sider which op­tions are best for you. When it comes to your ca­reer, ex­pect long hours at the of­fice and af­ter work as you’ll have more re­spon­si­bil­i­ties on your plate. Re­la­tion­ships with fam­ily mem­bers look good; you’ll rely on their help close to 17-18 Novem­ber. There’s also a dis­rup­tion in your love life: ei­ther a cur­rent re­la­tion­ship will come to an end or you’ll meet a po­ten­tial mate who’s ex­cit­ing, mys­te­ri­ous and edgy.
