Marie Claire (South Africa) - - CONTENTS -

Rus­sell Grant, en­tre­pre­neur / Cha­mone van Zyl, copy­writer

RUS­SELL: ‘I’m thank­ful that she keeps me young!’ CHA­MONE: ‘He is self­less and pa­tient, which isn’t very easy when you’re dat­ing me! He keeps me grounded.’

Shuaib Ran­graje, soft­ware de­vel­oper and stu­dent / Zaakira Moola, fash­ion blog­ger

SHUAIB: ‘I love how she opens me up to new ex­pe­ri­ences and stops me from be­com­ing com­pla­cent.’ ZAAKIRA: ‘I love that he chal­lenges me men­tally. He al­ways pushes me to achieve more and work harder.’

Babalwa Free­man­tle, ad­min­is­tra­tor / Louis Bezuiden­hout, IT support

BABALWA: ‘He makes me feel like a princess and his smile calms me. I love his pas­sion for God. I know he’d take a bul­let for me – that is what best friends do.’ LOUIS: ‘She has a God-loving heart and takes great care of me. She is also phys­i­cally beau­ti­ful – that’s a given!’

Ta­tum Guer­cio, op­er­a­tions man­ager / Mo­hit Sooka, co-owner of Can o’ Baked Beans

TA­TUM: ‘I love how well he un­der­stands me and the in­ten­sity of his pas­sions for life, his art and for me. He al­ways re­mem­bers to put our friend­ship first.’

MO­HIT: ‘You will not find a more sup­port­ive, loving, pro­tec­tive or fun part­ner. Her abil­ity to give is end­less and she makes me want to be bet­ter. I know she has my back and I have hers.’

Tom Rev­ing­ton, Cin­e­matog­ra­pher and mu­si­cian / Remy Kloos, As­sis­tant Sus­tain­able De­vel­op­ment Man­ager

TOM: ‘I love the great YouTube videos she sends me, her nat­u­ral beauty and fun per­son­al­ity.’ REMY: ‘He has a great sense of hu­mour and ad­ven­ture. We aren’t se­ri­ous all the time, which is great be­cause life is too short. We never just sit at home.’

Bobo Ndima, fash­ion stylist / Sa­man­tha Mos­ala, wardrobe as­sis­tant

BOBO: ‘She has a com­plex but beau­ti­ful soul. She is also a com­pet­i­tive and zeal­ous per­son who keeps me on my toes.’ SA­MAN­THA: ‘I ad­mire his gen­tle na­ture; he is such a lovely be­ing.’
