True Love - - CONTENTS - Ed­i­tor Mbali Soga

Septem­ber has al­ways been my favourite month. Not only is it my birth­day month, I also feel a sense of new­ness and fresh­ness (more so than in Jan­uary). It feels like you can press life’s “re­set” but­ton – to read­just your wardrobe, re­vive your so­cial life and re­la­tion­ships, spruce up your home... ba­si­cally any and ev­ery­thing!

If you’re look­ing for some style in­spi­ra­tion, look no fur­ther than this ex­cit­ing is­sue. Our fash­ion and beauty team have searched high and low to put to­gether a col­lec­tion of must-have items to up­date your wardrobe for the com­ing hot months. And boy did they search! From eye-pop­ping shades, ’80s disco-in­spired me­tallics to the lat­est shoes to step in – it’s lit­er­ally ev­ery­thing you need to look brand new.

As the days be­come longer, what bet­ter way to say hello to spring than to en­ter­tain fam­ily and friends out­doors? Our food ed­i­tor cooked up a storm, what with her mouth­wa­ter­ing braai ideas that make you want to lick the pages (I’m a sucker for a good braai), as well as dainty mini-treats that are per­fect for brunch or a high tea.

Do read the fea­ture on page 90 if you’re con­sid­er­ing a “spring fling”, to learn how to broach those re­ally awk­ward ques­tions be­fore jump­ing into the sack with your new beau. From his sex­ual his­tory and HIV and STD tests to your stat­ing your bound­aries, I know these top­ics can make you cringe, but con­fronting them could save you the heartache and drama.

Be­fore I sign off, I’d like to con­grat­u­late the win­ning Se­curex Yin and Yang cou­ple, Naledi Tema and Katlego Mfolo, who’ve bagged a R20 000 cash price which they plan to spend on their bae-cation! The cou­ple was cho­sen fol­low­ing a 3-month search. Af­ter wit­ness­ing Katlego’s bois­ter­ous per­son­al­ity against Naledi’s re­served de­meanour, I to­tally agree that they are a com­ple­men­tary pair.

Here’s to your “re­set” sea­son.

As the days be­come longer, what bet­ter way to say hello to spring than to en­ter­tain fam­ily and friends?

The in­cred­i­ble team be­hind this month’s cover I still can’t be­lieve Ms. Badu is com­ing to SA for the DStv De­li­cious Fest!
