SPOILS TO SHOW YOUR LOVE
The secret to
SHOPPING, PEOPLE AND LIFESTYLE IN YOUR NEIGHBOURHOOD
This month’s focus ... hyperpigmentation
One of the leading concerns among clients today is
hyperpigmentation, a skin condition that occurs due to the
overproduction of the pigment known as melanin.
There are several different types of pigmentation, and it is
important to have a skincare expert assess your skin prior to
The main triggers of hyperpigmentation to take into
consideration are: genetics, solar damage, warm
temperatures (hot showers or any activity that induces
sweating), overstimulation due to using the incorrect
products, a hormonal imbalance such as melasma
(extremely common after pregnancy), post-inflammation
caused by acne, or healed injuries such as burns, cuts and
The most effective way to combat this persistent skin
condition is by simultaneously inhibiting tyrosinase activity
and melanin production. When we treat hyperpigmentation
we have a dual-action treatment approach with our Kalahari
professional treatments, as well as our homecare products,
that will produce visible results.
Kalahari treatment of the
month ... TCA Peel
A medium strength chemical peel, that
consists of 8 percent trichloroacetic
acid, revitalises skin by lifting dead
surface cells and stimulating cell
mitosis. This professional treatment
visibly brightens and improves skin
discolouration, reduces the appearance
of fine lines and leaves your skin
looking radiant. Our expert skin
therapists can assess your skin and put
together your ideal skincare strategy.
Kalahari product of the month ...
the Skin Brightening Gel
Our Skin Brightening Gel is a Kalahari favourite when
it comes to effectively treating hyperpigmentation.
A lightweight treatment gel that contains a
combination of powerful phyto-effective ingredients
including alpha arbutin, carob leaf extract willow
bark extract and Kigelia africana. This gel effectively
inhibits tyrosinase activity as well as melanin
production, resulting in a visibly brighter and more
even skin tone. An SPF 40 is highly recommended to
be used over this gel during day time. R320 from any

Books for mums ... and a happy-ever-after
After an air raid in London, an injured woman is found wandering around. She
does not have any memory of who she is, but she knows she has lost something
precious. A young boy is taken from an orphanage and sent to Australia on
board a ship. How, he wonders, is his mum going to find him? In Perth, a lonely
woman takes in the child. But then she discovers his past. Does she keep
quiet, or tell ... and risk losing the little boy who’s become her life? The Oceans
Between Us by Gill Thompson ... a tear-jerker for Mother’s Day. Headline, R325
• We love a good Irish tale, and M for Mammy by Eleanor O’Reilly is just
wonderful. It is a story about the Augustts ... a loving, Irish family who, like all
families, are a bit complicated. Even more so when the mum has a stroke and
the force of nature who is Granny Mae-Ann comes to take charge to try and
keep the family together. She has a job on! There is the son with all his words
trapped in his head by The Bloody Autism, the father struggling to express
himself at all and the daughter quietly writing it all down to try and make sense
of it. Language and love and the power of a family ... brilliant. John Murray, R300
• ‘I have several mothers. It’s a bit complicated for me. Especially as they really
don’t like each other. There’s even one who’s going to die. Maybe it’s a little
bit my fault ... maybe everything happened because of me. Because I can’t
remember which one is the real one.’ In Michel Bussi’s The Wrong Mother,
four-year-old Malone starts telling people that his mother is not his real mother.
It is impossible. She has birth certificates, photos of him as a child and even the
paediatrician confirms this is her child. The school psychologist is the only one
who believes him and he is determined to find out the truth. Orion, R305

She’s a mom, wife, businesswoman, singer and actress. Pretoria East’s Melissa Swart dishes
on how she manages to raise babies and build a career.
Text: Mariëtte van Niekerk / Photographer: Anthony Horak Photograpgy / Special credit: Follicle Inc.
Melissa Swart has a smile that
can light up a room, a career
that will leave many green
with envy, a doting husband
and is mom of two kiddos under the age
of five. Jip, that’s quite a mouthful.
And then she still finds time to help
other moms deal with the challenges of
Melissa, hubby Tertius and two kids,
Xavier (3) and Xerésh (4) reside in Pretoria
East and the busy mom says her kids
completely changed her life.
“I always thought that I knew what
unconditional love (with my husband)
was, but my two little ones came to show
me the true definition and concept of true
love,” Melissa explains.
And it was her kids that made her start
her blog #THEHONESTTOMOMTRUTH.
“Staying home alone with first Xerésh
and then her and Xavi made me go
through one heck of an identity crisis.
“Before the kids, I was always very sure
of who I was as a successful singer, actress
and writer and suddenly I was just a
mom. Everything I used to work on was
suddenly just gone.
“The more I got to talk to other moms,
however, I came to realise that I was not
alone. I just could not understand why no
one ever speak about it, so I decided to do
so,” Melissa says.
The name comes from the saying: “It
is the honest to God truth” and Melissa
says she chose it specifically, because
she wants moms to be able to share their
“I write about my own experiences as
well as what I see other moms go though
and experience around me,” she adds.
She recently teamed up with the wellknown
baby product range Epimax and
launched her own web-series 1,2,3 with
Living and Loving magazine.
“I talk about topics many moms debate
or have questions about. You would think
that being a mom is hard enough, but
I never imagined moms would criticise
and break each other down this much.
“Being a mom is all about the daily
discovery of my heart’s capabilities. It is
a chance to raise two people who know
their worth and therefore can make a
change in the world,” she says.
“The feedback on the blog has been
fantastic, with many parents telling me
they feel less alone.”
Apart from being a blogger and
full-time mom, she is also part of the
female singing group Dinamiese
Dames alongside Nadia Beukes, Marisa
Drummond and Edrien Erasmus. The
ladies met while sharing a dressing room
while working on a musical.
“We became friends and since we
all have a passion for women and the
different phases in life, we decided to start
a cabaret group,” Melissa explains.
The talented Pretorian is also the sister
of former Miss South Africa Melinda Bam
and the daughter of well-known gospel
singer Wanda Bam.
“I have so much love for Melin’ and my
mom and I am so proud of them. But it is
sometimes tough to fight for your own
identity when people keep pushing you
under someone else’s title,” she says.
Melissa also has a passion for hair, makeup
and styling and says it mostly comes
with being part of the entertainment
“When I gave up my musical theatre
career to be with the kids, it was also
something I could do from home, and my
business just boomed,” she says.
So how does she manage it all?
“Lists ... It is all that works. Start at the top
and work your way through,” she laughs.
The most difficult part of being a mom?
Patience. But her mom taught her to have
grace with yourself and your own growth
“Many days life is like a circus, but it is
a beautiful, colourful circus and I cannot
wait to see what tomorrow has in-store,”

THE TIME IS
For years, mum of two, Magna Lomas, has put her family first. She was the rock behind
hubby’s business, momager to her singer son and the glue that held her household and
family together. Now, at the age of 48, it is finally her time to shine.
Magna Lomas (48) from
Southdown’s story is one to
which many mothers can relate.
From the minute her first little
bundle of joy was born, her entire life
started to revolve around her family.
That inevitably led to many of her hopes,
dreams and passions to take a backseat to
the needs of her family. With her last born
out of school, Magna finally has some time
to spare – time for her art.
She credits her creativity and love of the
finer things in life to her mother, who had
a room filled with all the kinds of art and
craft necessities of which you can dream.
“My mother always motivated me and
gave me the opportunity to flourish in my
art,” Magna says.
After completing her schooling, she
enrolled as an art student at the Tshwane
University if Technology (then Technicon
Pretoria) but, because of circumstances,
only completed her first year of studies.
She met her husband, Wayne Lomas,
in art class in Grade 10 and the couple
is celebrating their 26th wedding
anniversary this year. They have two sons,
Georic (21) and Johndré (18).
The love of the arts seems to run though
all members of this family’s veins.
Wayne owns his own shopfitting
business, Georic is a singer with a passion
for design and little brother Johndré is
following in his dad’s footsteps, working at
the family business.
Taking care of a house full of men is no
easy task, but with both sons all grown
up, Magna decided that it was time to do
something for herself.
“Over the past nine years, we as a family
went through lots of trying times, mostly
due to health problems. As of this year,
however, everyone is doing well and
I decided that it is time for me to find
myself again and live out my passion,” she
One look at her paintings will have you
convinced of Magna’s talent. It is one of a
kind, eye-catching and really speaks to the
“I get inspiration from different emotions
I experience, things that happen and
the hidden inner strength and beauty of
women,” she explains.
She spends about 20 hours per week
painting, but says the creation process is
running through her mind 24 hours a day.
“I do not like to work on a painting for
longer than a week. I tend to lose interest,”
When she is painting, she uses acrylic
paint as base layers and oil paint for the
finer detail on top. For her latest painting,
she even mixed it up a bit and used oil
pastels and charcoal along with the acrylic
and oil paint.
One of our favourite paintings is of a
woman posing with an awkward, forced
Magna entered the piece into an
international art competition called
Delusional Art in 2018 and says it tells the
story of a young girl who hides her trauma
and pain behind a forced smile.
“Her inner conflict, anxiety, sadness,
struggle, confusion and disillusionment
are all illustrated with her eyes are an
indication of what is going on in her mind
and soul. The light and darkness indicates
the happiness and sadness in her life,” she
“My pieces are all simple yet timeless.
Colour and detail are very important to
me and the brush strokes are all worked in
with a dry brush to help create a smoother
“My latest pieces are very transparent,
soft and mysterious,” she says.
Some of her favourite local artists include
Lionel Smit, Mat Louwrens, Michael Heyns
and Marina Louw. The last artwork she
bought is by Mat Louwrens, depicting
children running through a field of flowers.
An advice for other mums trying to find
themselves again after the kids have left
the nest or just struggling to keep their
head above water amidst daily chores and
“Keep the faith and be patient with
yourself; it will get better. Your time will
come. If you do want to take on a project,
keep it small. Rather tackle something
smaller just for the fun of it, as bigger
projects tend to lead to frustration.
“Never stop dreaming and remember to
keep your passion alive – even if it is only
in your head.
“And lastly, never let your fear of
disappointment keep you from doing
something – just go for it.”
When she is not busy running the
household, spending time with family
or painting, she likes to scroll through
Pinterest looking for inspiration and new

MORE ON THE DYNAMIC DUO:
What is your favourite local family restaurant?
La Fiamma – A little Italian restaurant in Cliffendale Drive.
How do you manage to cope, running a business while dealing with
normal daily household challenges?
With the support from our family and teamwork, we manage to juggle
household challenges and running a business.
When you are not working, what do you do to relax?
We love spending time with our family and friends; we love escaping from
the city on the weekends and exploring places and meeting new faces.
Shopping for a little princess is always fun – whether she’s your own or not. But, finding the
perfect baby shower, birthday or Christening gift might sound easier said than done.
We caught up with the Nortier sisters, the brains behind the proudly Pretorian Everli baby
and toddler range.
n a world of individualism, family
heirlooms and traditional hand-medowns
seem to be a thing of the past ...
that something precious that has been
passed on from generation to generation.
For many it is a string of pearls or a
gorgeous Christening gown, but where
to find these items if you do not have any
family treasures of your own?
Thanks to Nina and Sally Nortier, the
sisters behind the Everli Baby brand, you
can start your own traditions or just dress
the little princess in your life in some of
the cutest outfits and accessories we are
yet to see. The dynamic duo saw a gap
in the market, realising the struggle of
many women (and men) trying to find the
perfect baby gift, and created their own
range of the most beautiful, timeless gifts
that will impress even the fussiest mum.
“We wanted to create products that are
not only exquisite, stylish and comfortable,
but designed to last and to be passed
down from one generation to the next.
The quality of our customised products
ensures that they will last; but it is really
the timelessness and daintiness of our
designs that make our clothing the perfect
heirloom to either keep in your child’s
memory box, or to lovingly pass on to the
next generation of children in your family
or friendship circle,” Nina explains.
The sisters from Faerie Glen share a
passion for fashion alongside an adoration
for children and combining their two loves
resulted in the creation of Everli Baby – a
brand that will last forever.
“One day we heard that they were
talking about a little girl called Everli over
the radio and we immediately fell in love
with the name and decided Everli was the
perfect fit – Everli is our ‘foreverli’ brand
name,” Nina explains the name.
The Everli Baby range are made from
cotton and bamboo, making items
long-lasting and eco-friendly. Bamboo’s
thermal regulating nature will keep your
little one comfortable, as it is warm in cool
weather and cool in warm weather; while
the cotton fabrics absorb your baby’s body
moisture easily and will not irritate their
delicate skin. Each item also comes with a
soft touch of lace, are dyed by hand and
packed with a personalised swing tag,
making it the ultimate gift idea.
So where do they get the inspiration for
their gorgeous outfits from?
“The birth of a specific item in our range
often starts with us falling in love with
a piece of lace. From there an outfit is
conceptualised, designed and crafted.
Each item in our range is named after one
of the cherubs we meet along the way.”
Each unique design is handmade by
a quality team of seamstresses and the
collections can be viewed on their online
shop. But we have to warn you. You will
definitely spend much more than you
initially planned to. Prices range from R65
to R520 and include the most exquisite
accessories, rompers and dresses. Even
the wrapping will leave you giddy with
But it is not all for babies. Everli Baby now
also has a toddler collection, specifically
made for moms and dads wanting to
keep dressing their little ones in the range.
Many mommies also love dressing their
babies and toddlers in similar outfits and it
does not get cuter than Everli Baby.
Starting up their own business was
anything but easy.
“Deciding to put your dream into action
and giving 100% to make your business a
reality, and then realising that there is no
turning back. It is a leap of faith, but also
the most rewarding part. In the fashion
industry, it is always quite challenging
creating the next season’s collection six
months in advance – you are ‘dying of
heat’ while dreaming up winter designs,”
the sisters say.
Working with family, we can imagine is
quite hard. So what is their secret?
“We are not only family, but best friends.
We have different personalities and
strengths which we capitalise on and
have different roles and responsibilities
within our business. It is important to
switch off some days and spend quality
sister bonding time and not talk about
business,” the duo explains.
And the two really are two peas in
a pod. Both studied BCom Marketing
Management at the University of Pretoria
and spent time abroad after varsity.
At Everli Baby, Nina is the mastermind
behind the business and handle all dayto-day
business activities, while Sally is the
more creative and analytical brain.
Their favourite piece from Everli Baby is
their very first design, the Aurora Romper.
“It showcases our unique Everli design
(bubble-cut knee-length romper), with
a touch of lace (short lace sleeves with
a see-through lace back with scalloped
edges in the middle and ties at the back),”

We know it’s cold outside and exercise might not be your top priority. Get in shape, or just
get started with a bootcamp session (or two). Here’s what you need to know.
Lelani Loots, owner of LaniFit
Bootcamp, has always been
passionate about fitness. She is a
qualified personal trainer with a fulltime
“My classes were fully booked and there
were only so many people I could help, so
I decided to start my own bootcamp to
offer training in bigger numbers.
“LaniFit Bootcamp was born and today
I have between 250 and 300 ladies
attending classes at three different
venues in Centurion,” Lelani says.
Of course we wanted to find out more
about this fitness craze and Lelani was
eager to share.
Why is bootcamping such an effective
form of exercise?
“Bootcamp targets different areas in
the body and activities involve various
cardiovascular, strength-building and
mobility-enhancing exercise routines
designed to target each and every muscle
group,” Lelani explains.
She uses different equipment like
kettlebells, slamballs, boxing, bands
and weight training to help achieve the
And then there is, of course, the fact
that you get to exercise outdoors.
“It is energising and gives you a chance
to breathe in fresh air while you work. It
can also be the change of scenery your
brain needs to rewire after a long day at
work,” she adds.
On a scale from 1 to 10, how hectic is
bootcamp classes compared to Pilates,
“My bootcamp is for all fitness levels as
you just do what you can and keep up
with your own fitness levels. Every session
22 Get It Pretoria May 2019
we do will be something different and as
you get stronger and fitter, you can do
more and more every week,” Lelani says.
“On a scale of one to 10, I would say it
is a strong seven – but only because I am
“I like to motivate clients and push them
to their limits compared to a gym where
you gym by yourself and might not give
it your all.”
How long are the classes?
“Classes are an hour long, including warm
up. All in all, you will get a good workout
and cool down.”
How many classes per week are
needed to see a difference?
Lelani recommends attending bootcamp
classes at least twice per week.
It might also be a good idea to
supplement your weekend exercise
regime with a weekend park run or
‘active’ activity with the family.
How many different exercises does one
do at a bootcamp class?
Every session is different. Some days
classes consist of a 20-minute boxing
session, paired with a 15-minute ABS
workout with some cardio in between.
“Other sessions are focused on legs,
thighs and the bum area,” Lelani says.
“I also love to do full-body Tabata
workouts (20sec work, 10sec rest), where
I will let the campers train arms, legs,
butt, ABS, back and fitness all in one class.
What are some of the most basic
bootcamp exercises people can look
Lelani likes to do stations with lunges,
squats, kettlebell swings, wall balls,
crunches and mountain climber
movements. She also offers boxing.
Who would you say would benefit
most from bootcamp?
“Everyone! Bootcamp is the perfect form
of exercise for someone who wants to
lose weight, tone, get stronger (some
campers train for the Comrades and just
want to improve leg and arm strength),
get fit, improve their well-being or just
want to spend some time outdoors while
getting a workout.”
How important is it to follow a good
diet along with exercise?
“Like the experts say, a healthy lifestyle
consists of 80% diet and 20% training –
yup, that’s true! But even if you just start
with bootcamp to help you get fitter,
stronger and more motivated, you will
slowly start to change your eating habits
as well,” Lelani says.
How much does it cost to attend a
Monthly fee: R350 – three classes
per week. Classes are on Mondays,
Wednesday and Fridays between 8am
and 9am or Mondays and Wednesdays
between 5pm and 6pm.
Doxa Deo Raslouw and Rooihuiskraal venue
Monthly fee: R300 – two classes per week.

An African savannah elephant is killed,
on average, every 15 to 20 minutes.
Let that sink in a little. These gentle,
magnificent creatures are a species
in crisis. The authors of The Last
Elephants, Don Pinnock and Colin Bell,
hope their book will fulfil two wishes
... that at CITES 2019, elephants will
be upgraded to Appendix I (banning
trade of elephants or their parts across
international borders) and secondly
that those countries that receive and
use legal and poached ivory (mainly
China, Vietnam, Laos and Japan) will
ban and police its trade and use. In
the book, the story of our continent’s
elephants and the dangers they face
is told through the eyes of more
than 40 researchers, conservationists,
poets, activists and rangers. With
a foreword by HRH Prince William,
Duke of Cambridge, the book is also
a tribute to the people who work for
the welfare of elephants, particularly
those who risk their lives for them,
often for little or no pay. Exceptional
photographs and an exceptional
book. Penguin, R490
This month we are drinking Indlovu
Gin ... made from elephant dung
