It’s 1954 on far-flung Verona Island,<br />

a tropical paradise with a fragile<br />

economy and a rising crime rate.<br />

Prostitution is legal and Lila Gulliver<br />

is proud of her business - a highend<br />

brothel where her clients are<br />

guaranteed privacy and discretion.<br />

When Carità Bercy, a young, destitute,<br />

and beautiful blind woman arrives at<br />

her door seeking employment, Lila<br />

decides to give her a chance. Carità<br />

proves a valuable asset to the house,<br />

as well as a psychological puzzle to her<br />

employer. One hot night, Ian Drohan,<br />

a handsome son of a wealthy judge,<br />

visits Lila’s house for the first time,<br />

and falls madly in love with Carità.<br />

Lila doubts his sincerity and fears for<br />

Carità‘s future. But Carità has no such<br />

fears. In fact, she is a reckless force of<br />

nature, determined to succeed in ways<br />

Lila hasn’t even contemplated. Valerie<br />

The first thing Vanessa Carvin does<br />

when she arrives on the small island<br />

off the coast of Ireland is change her<br />

name. To the locals, she will be Willow<br />

Hale. The second is to shave her head<br />

... no longer shoulder length blonde,<br />

it’s now cropped and grey, more<br />

in keeping with a solitary outsider<br />

escaping Dublin to live a hermetic<br />

existence in a small cottage, and not a<br />

notorious woman trying to get away<br />

from the media after her husband<br />

committed a crime - one they think<br />

she is guilty of, too. Escaping her old<br />

life might seem like a good idea but<br />

the choices she has made throughout<br />

her marriage have consequences.<br />

Here, on the island, Vanessa must<br />

reflect on what she did, and did<br />

not, do. Only then can she discover<br />

whether she is worthy of finding<br />

peace at all. Water by John Boyne ...<br />

a story of a woman coming to terms<br />

with the demons of her past and<br />

It’s 2050. A climate-changed world,<br />

where humans and digital devices<br />

are closely entwined. It’s a world filled<br />

with natural disasters, drought, famine<br />

and floods. People are displaced as<br />

new immigration laws are put into<br />

effect, and the gap between the<br />

haves and have nots widens. Future<br />

Imperfect by Babette Gallard is<br />

the story of a family determined to<br />

be together ... despite the horrific<br />

obstacles in their way ... exhaustion,<br />

terror, the xenophobia of people<br />

struggling to protect their increasingly<br />

scarce resources. Thought-provoking,<br />

this novel raises the question of what<br />

Extraordinarily similar woodpeckers<br />

in South America and Africa.<br />

Quintessentially African trees native<br />

across South America, from Ecuador<br />

to Paraguay. How could this be? This<br />

question nagged Nick Norman, an<br />

exploration geologist by profession<br />

and keen birder by hobby. He’d been<br />

surprised to see a woodpecker in<br />

Brazil, where he was working at the<br />

time, which was strikingly similar to<br />

those he knew in the land of his birth,<br />

South Africa. In subsequent work<br />

engagements in South America, he<br />

saw other birds there, as well as trees,<br />

which represented families he knew<br />

well in Africa. That was the mystery<br />

… how the same families of flora and<br />

fauna had distributed themselves in<br />

continents astride a major world ocean,<br />

the South Atlantic. The obvious answer<br />

– continental drift – turned out to be<br />

a blind alley. Sherlock Holmes said<br />

‘When you have eliminated all which<br />

is impossible, then whatever remains,<br />

however improbable, must be the<br />

truth.’ In solving the mystery, the truth<br />

of Holmes’s axiom became more and<br />

more evident to Nick as he discovered<br />

extraordinary travelogues of trees and<br />

birds for which, given enough time, a<br />

wide ocean was no barrier. This, Nick<br />

Norman’s The Woodpecker Mystery –<br />

The inevitability of the Improbable, is<br />

a story of astonishing epiphanies, full of<br />

fact that will fascinate lovers of natural<br />

Elegant and gracious, Lindiwe Brenda Mabaso’s ladylike demeanour belies a<br />

plucky and resourceful determination to challenge the status quo.<br />

Brenda Mabaso

Text: MELLISSA BUSHBY. Photographer: BELINDA Erasmus<br />

Brenda has done her fair share of<br />

moving around over the years, but is<br />

happy to call Mbombela home for the<br />

time being. She smilingly says that it<br />

is a case of ‘wherever I lay my head is<br />

home’. “My son has even told me on<br />

several occasions that he really hopes<br />

that this time we stay put, as he really<br />

doesn’t want to move again!”<br />

Brenda’s career started off in the field<br />

of commerce teaching, although deep<br />

down she always knew she wouldn’t<br />

be a teacher for long. Three years later<br />

she joined an NGO affiliated with the<br />

Women’s World Bank, which placed her<br />

squarely on an international platform.<br />

“The organisation was responsible for<br />

assisting women to start their own<br />

income-generating projects in order<br />

to be self-sufficient,” she explains.<br />

“This was my career springboard and<br />

breakthrough; it exposed me to so<br />

much more than I was used to.”<br />

From there Brenda joined another skills<br />

training institute that offered her a<br />

scholarship from the British Council to<br />

study in the United Kingdom, where<br />

she completed her masters in business<br />

administration with the Durham<br />

University Business School. Since then,<br />

Brenda’s career has taken many turns,<br />

from negotiating trade talks to working<br />

with industrial development zones,<br />

both locally and internationally. But<br />

her true passion has always lain with<br />

making a difference in people’s lives,<br />

specifically when it comes to gender<br />

issues.<br />

In 2021, Brenda followed her heart and<br />

established The Mentorship Academy<br />

(TMA), an organisation based on<br />

helping young women to succeed.<br />

“TMA focuses on the guidance of<br />

Brenda with her good friend, Brenda Archdeacon<br />

young women,” she says, “the whole<br />

aim of which is to build a pipeline of<br />

young women who are confident<br />

enough and equipped to take up<br />

leadership roles, women who are<br />

supported and empowered enough<br />

to deal with the traditional difficulties<br />

they face, whatever prevents them<br />

from reaching their goals.”<br />

Brenda describes the difficulties she<br />

experienced during her career. “There<br />

were so many challenges, the worst<br />

of which was gender discrimination. I<br />

looked back and realised that if I had<br />

had a mentor, things would have been<br />

that much easier. However, through<br />

the many challenges, I was always able<br />

to bounce back, but not everyone is as<br />

resilient, and I also think it comes down<br />

to self-worth. I wanted to establish a<br />

platform on which young women can<br />

be mentored by experienced men and<br />

women, men and women with a vast<br />

wealth of leadership experience.”<br />

Brenda’s most challenging times<br />

were experienced between the<br />

ages of 25 and 35. Research shows<br />

that this is the most critical stage in

A happy family<br />

a women’s life cycle, the age when<br />

many women are establishing their<br />

careers or experiencing significant<br />

advancements. “It involves balancing<br />

career aspirations with personal goals,<br />

such as starting a family, perhaps<br />

dealing with fertility concerns,<br />

financial considerations and societal<br />

expectations, etc. This can be stressful,<br />

and without any help or guidance,<br />

you can easily give up on your dreams.<br />

What was even more of a problem for<br />

me was the lack of ambition - how few<br />

young women aspired to leadership<br />

roles. My vision is to help them unleash<br />

their hidden leadership potential.”<br />

One of the great things about<br />

the digital age is how it connects<br />

people from all over, and TMA is no<br />

exception. Brenda’s mentors come<br />

from all over the world, which means<br />

she travels more often than not. “My<br />

work life is highly demanding, and I<br />

sometimes find it difficult to balance<br />

the many roles, especially being a<br />

present mother to my son, Umelwe<br />

[12], and my family, which includes<br />

Jaden, our little dog. I also have to<br />

find time for my studies! I’m currently<br />

doing research with the University of<br />

Northampton in the UK, which comes<br />

with its own challenges. My family is<br />

very supportive, which really helps me<br />

to cope.”<br />

10 Get It <strong>Lowveld</strong> <strong>May</strong> 20<strong>24</strong><br />

Brenda describes herself as resilient,<br />

determined and a go-getter. She is<br />

inspired by interactions with friends,<br />

family, colleagues, mentors and even<br />

strangers. “I love learning from other<br />

people’s experiences,” she smiles.<br />

“Ideas and perspectives motivate and<br />

challenge me to always explore new<br />

possibilities, and overcoming obstacles<br />

is a powerful source of inspiration - it<br />

makes me discover my inner strength<br />

and determination.”<br />

When Brenda is at home, she loves<br />

spending time with Umelwe and<br />

Brenda and Umelwe<br />

Jaden, and their favourite place to<br />

go to is Kaapsehoop. “It’s quiet but<br />

adventurous,” she says, “Umelwe can<br />

go horse riding, we can go walking<br />

along the trails - it’s peaceful and<br />

beautiful. And there are so many places<br />

to sit and have a quiet meal in lovely<br />

surroundings.”<br />

Brenda has already helped countless<br />

young mentees to see their potential<br />

and set the stage for great things. She<br />

stresses that young people must realise<br />

the sole responsibility for defining<br />

their future lies with them. “I always<br />

say the world is your oyster and a<br />

positive attitude will always help you to<br />

navigate tough times and challenges.<br />

Complaining and doubting yourself<br />

will not help at all. Try something new,<br />

seek help, and above all, never give up.”<br />

Right now, this dynamic woman’s main<br />

priority is to finish her research with<br />

the University of Northampton, and<br />

then to complete her doctorate. “To<br />

be honest, I have always seen myself<br />

in a much higher position than I am in<br />

now - although, having said that, I am<br />

quite happy with what I have achieved,”<br />

she smiles. “And I’m still aiming high.<br />

I always wanted to make a difference<br />

in people’s lives, I wanted to break the<br />

norm and be involved in providing<br />

solutions. I just knew I did not ever<br />

want to be ordinary.”

Mother’s Day is more<br />

than just a special<br />

occasion dedicated<br />

to honouring the<br />

incredible women in<br />

our lives who have<br />

selflessly nurtured<br />

and cared for us.<br />

It’s also a day for<br />

mums to celebrate<br />

themselves and<br />

indulge in a little<br />

self-care and<br />

pampering.<br />

We chatted to Sonette Barnard of<br />

Bodycure to find out what her top<br />

tips for a fabulous Mother’s Day are,<br />

from being spoilt by the family to<br />

practising self-care.<br />

Starting the day with breakfast in<br />

bed is Sonette’s first port of call.<br />

“Let your family pamper you by<br />

preparing a delicious breakfast and<br />

serving it to you in bed. Enjoying<br />

the luxury of a leisurely morning is<br />

all part of your special day,” she says.<br />

“Then, while you are enjoying your cup<br />

of tea or coffee made with the help<br />

of little hands, plan a family outing for<br />

later on in the day. It’s important to<br />

spend quality time together. It could<br />

be a picnic in the park, a hike in nature<br />

or even a visit to a local attraction.<br />

Creating lasting memories together is<br />

part of making the most of the day.”<br />

But don’t forget the me-time!<br />

Indulging in some spa time is a<br />

favourite way to relax and spoil<br />

yourself, whether it’s for an hour or<br />

the whole day. “Treat yourself, either<br />

at a professional spa or in the comfort<br />

of your own home,” Sonette advises.<br />

“Have a relaxing bath, do a face mask<br />

and enjoy some pampering treatments<br />

to rejuvenate your body and mind.”<br />

(Our home-made scrub is perfect!). “A<br />

pamper session will make sure you feel<br />

refreshed and ready to enjoy whatever<br />

the rest of the day has in store,<br />

whether it’s the picnic you’ve planned<br />

earlier, a leisurely late lunch or a long<br />

walk. Remember, it’s your day, so let<br />

others handle the chores. Take a break<br />

from all housework, including cooking,<br />

cleaning and other tasks. Use this time<br />

to relax and recharge.”<br />

Sonette’s next top tip is to have a<br />

family movie night. “Gather the family<br />

and have a cosy movie night at home.<br />

Let everyone choose their favourite<br />

movies or watch a new release<br />

together. Snuggle up with blankets,<br />

hot cocoa and popcorn, and enjoy<br />

quality time together.” Sonette also<br />

recommends writing a gratitude letter,<br />

taking a moment to express your<br />

gratitude by writing a heartfelt note<br />

to your mum or a mother figure in<br />

your life. “Let them know how much<br />

they mean to you and how they have<br />

impacted your life. You can ask your<br />

children to do the same, either for you<br />

or for their gran. It’s a lovely gesture<br />

that can be treasured for generations<br />

to come.”<br />

Always important, but never more<br />

so than on Mother’s Day, practising<br />

self-care is crucial to your mental,<br />

emotional and physical well-being.<br />

Set aside some time for yourself and<br />

engage in activities that bring you joy<br />

and relaxation. It could be reading a<br />

book, practising yoga, taking a walk<br />

or doing any hobby you love. Today is<br />

the day to prioritise self-care, Sonette<br />

advises. “Let the family spoil you!<br />

Enjoy a special meal, whether it’s a<br />

home-made dinner or a reservation<br />

at a favourite restaurant, savouring<br />

a special meal with your loved ones<br />

is a must on Mother’s Day. Celebrate<br />

and enjoy delicious food and take<br />

the time to appreciate one another’s<br />

company. Sometimes we take family<br />

for granted. Remind yourself just<br />

how important that bond is. You<br />

can also get creative and engage in<br />

a creative activity together. It could<br />

be painting, crafting or even baking.<br />

Let your imagination flow and create<br />

something meaningful.”<br />

Mother’s Day is all about celebrating<br />

and honouring the incredible mothers<br />

in our lives. Enjoy the day to the fullest<br />

and cherish the love and appreciation<br />

that surround you, and take a moment<br />

to reflect on the joys and challenges of<br />

motherhood. Appreciate yourself and<br />

all the love and care you have given<br />

to your family. Embrace the beauty of<br />

being a mother.

Functional beverages<br />

From vitamin-enhanced waters to energy<br />

Fortified breakfast<br />

cereals<br />

Many breakfast cereals<br />

are fortified with vitamins<br />

and minerals such as<br />

iron, calcium and vitamin<br />

D, providing essential<br />

nutrients to start the day.

In an era in which health consciousness is at its peak, the<br />

term ‘functional foods’ has emerged as the new buzzword<br />

in the realm of nutrition.<br />

Functional foods are fortified with<br />

additional nutrients and go beyond<br />

basic sustenance, offering various<br />

health benefits that cater to specific<br />

bodily functions.<br />

This new trend towards functional<br />

eating represents a paradigm shift<br />

in dietary habits, with consumers<br />

increasingly seeking out products<br />

that taste good, but also support their<br />

overall health and well-being.<br />

Functional foods encompass a wide<br />

range of edibles, from everyday<br />

staples to specialised products, all<br />

of them designed to provide health<br />

benefits beyond basic nutrition. Unlike<br />

conventional foods, functional foods<br />

are fortified with additional nutrients,<br />

vitamins and minerals, all of which are<br />

known to promote health and prevent<br />

disease. These ingredients are carefully<br />

selected for their specific biological<br />

effects, targeting heart health,<br />

digestion, immunity, inflammation and<br />

cognitive function.<br />

One of the primary advantages of<br />

incorporating functional foods into<br />

your diet is to promote overall health<br />

and well-being. By adding these<br />

nutrient-dense foods, you boost<br />

your immune system, improve your<br />

digestive health, regulate cholesterol<br />

levels, and even enhance brain<br />

function. Functional foods have also<br />

been shown to mitigate the risk of<br />

chronic diseases such as diabetes,<br />

cardiovascular disorders and certain<br />

cancers, making them invaluable<br />

additions to a balanced diet.<br />

Functional foods come in various<br />

forms, from common grocery items to<br />

specialised health products. We’ve put<br />

together a few examples of items that<br />

you can add to your shopping list.<br />

Plant-based meat<br />

alternatives<br />

These products, made from<br />

ingredients such as pea protein,<br />

are enriched with essential<br />

vitamins and minerals and provide<br />

a meat-free protein source.<br />

Versatile Avocados!<br />

Green and dark-skinned avocados are available in South Africa<br />

almost all year round and the good news is that whichever colour avo you<br />

choose, they’re all equally delicious and nutritious.<br />

Remember that green-skinned avos<br />

remain green when ripe, while the<br />

dark-skinned avos turn purple-black<br />

when ready to eat – so please don’t<br />

squeeze! Even though avocados<br />

may vary in colour, shape and size,<br />

they are all a source of nutrients and<br />

can be included as part of a healthy<br />

eating plan.<br />

Avocados are one of the most<br />

versatile fruits around. It’s not hard<br />

to see why – they can be mashed,<br />

diced, sliced and puréed for<br />

everything from guacamole; salads;<br />

pizza toppings; sandwich and wrap<br />

fillings; soups; snacks and dips; and<br />

even ice-cream.<br />

They’re great for breakfast, lunch,<br />

supper and dessert, as well as in<br />

between snacks for when you’re on<br />

the move. And with zero preparation<br />

time involved, they’re ultraconvenient,<br />

and quick and easy to<br />

prepare no matter what dish you’re<br />

making. It really couldn’t be easier!<br />

So, no matter what you’re planning<br />

for your next meal always add an avo;<br />

whether on the side, on top or inside<br />

– green-skinned or dark-skinned – for<br />

double the deliciousness!<br />

Health facts<br />

The best thing about avos is that<br />

they are all:<br />

• High in energy<br />

• High in heart healthy fats<br />

• High in vitamin K<br />

• High in biotin<br />

• Cholesterol free<br />

• Sodium free<br />

• A source of fibre<br />

Avocados can form part of a<br />

successful energy-controlled diet for<br />

weight management. The healthy<br />

monounsaturated fats found in<br />

avocados give a feeling of fullness,<br />

which reduces the temptation to<br />

overeat or binge on less healthy foods.<br />

Sushi Bagels recipe that is load shedding friendly<br />

Serves 4, preparation time 25 minutes<br />

wrap around the bagel top. Add 3 slices of ginger. Repeat with the remaining<br />

bagel tops.<br />

Mash all the remaining avo with the wasabi, if using, and lemon juice. Season<br />

seeds onto the bagel tops.<br />

Spread the mashed avo onto the bottom halves of the bagels and sandwich<br />

together with the tops.<br />

Before you tie the<br />

knot<br />

The week leading up to your wedding is often a whirlwind of<br />

emotions, excitement and last-minute details. Amid all the<br />

chaos, it’s crucial to stay organised and focused to ensure that<br />

everything goes smoothly on your big day.<br />


22 Get It <strong>Lowveld</strong> <strong>May</strong> 20<strong>24</strong>

We’ve put together a few important tips to help you navigate this final stretch<br />

with ease, making sure you embark on the next chapter of your life with as little<br />

stress and as much excitement as possible. Remember that on her wedding day,<br />

every bride is a princess!<br />

The nitty-gritty<br />

Use this week to tie up any loose ends<br />

and confirm arrangements. Doublecheck<br />

delivery times and seating<br />

arrangements, and ensure everyone<br />

involved knows their roles and<br />

responsibilities.<br />

Delegate<br />

Don’t try to do everything yourself.<br />

Give tasks to trusted friends and family<br />

members to alleviate some of the<br />

stress. Assign someone to oversee<br />

set-up and decorations, another to<br />

handle guest accommodations, check<br />

food and flower arrangements, and<br />

so on.<br />

Pack essentials<br />

Create a checklist of items you’ll<br />

need for the wedding day and pack<br />

them ahead of time. This includes<br />

your wedding attire, accessories,<br />

vows, marriage licence and any other<br />

important documents or items. Don’t<br />

forget a first aid kit!<br />

Me-time<br />

Take time to relax and indulge in a<br />

little self-care. Get plenty of rest, eat<br />

well-balanced meals, stay hydrated<br />

and consider doing a little yoga and/or<br />

meditation to help alleviate stress<br />

and anxiety.<br />

Confirm arrangements<br />

If you have any beauty appointments<br />

scheduled, such as hair, make-up<br />

or spa treatments, confirm them in<br />

advance. Double-check the timing to<br />

ensure you’ll have plenty of time to get<br />

ready without feeling rushed.

Communicate<br />

Confirm logistics, timelines and any last-minute changes with everyone<br />

concerned. Make sure they have the correct contact information in case of<br />

emergencies.<br />

Rehearse ceremony<br />

Schedule a rehearsal for the ceremony to ensure everyone knows their cues<br />

and roles. This is also a good opportunity to iron out any kinks and make any<br />

necessary adjustments to the procession or order of events.<br />

Pack for your honeymoon<br />

If you’re leaving for your honeymoon<br />

straight after the wedding, make<br />

sure your bags are packed and ready<br />

in advance. Double-check travel<br />

documents, reservations and any other<br />

necessary arrangements to ensure<br />

smooth sailing.<br />

Stay organised<br />

Keep all important documents,<br />

contact information and schedules in<br />

one central location for easy access.<br />

Consider creating a wedding day<br />

timeline to keep everyone on track and<br />

ensure that everything runs smoothly.<br />

Tick the boxes as you go. Not only will<br />

it set your mind at ease, but it will give<br />

you a sense of achievement at being<br />

one step closer.<br />

Enjoy the moment<br />

Last but not least, don’t forget to take<br />

a step back and savour the moment.<br />

Amid all the planning and preparation,<br />

remember that this is a special time in<br />

your life. Enjoy every moment leading<br />

up to your big day.<br />

On the morning of the day<br />

1. Natural light is the most flattering. Choose a room that has<br />

plenty of natural light to get ready in.<br />

2. Surround yourself with people who make you feel good - no<br />

negativity allowed.<br />

3. Wear something you love and feel good in for your<br />

photographs.<br />

4. Make sure you give yourself plenty of time and breathing space.<br />

5. Do your hair and make-up first. You can always touch it up later.<br />

6. Make a playlist of all your favourite music to create a happy and<br />

relaxed atmosphere.<br />

7. Despite your nerves, don’t forget to eat and stay hydrated.<br />

8. Enjoy every single moment. It’s your day.<br />

Cindy Hart-Dorfling and Granny Khoza<br />


Bohemian bliss<br />

With her beautiful garments that lovingly embrace the more curvaceous<br />

feminine figure, Cindy Hart-Dorfling is arguably the boho-chic queen of<br />

the <strong>Lowveld</strong>.<br />

The Polokwane-born Cindy spent<br />

a few years in Pretoria where she<br />

studied public relations. Her first taste<br />

of the <strong>Lowveld</strong> was a stint as the<br />

public relations officer in the director’s<br />

office at the Kruger National Park.<br />

“That was the best year of my life! I<br />

have lived in the <strong>Lowveld</strong> from that<br />

moment on, on and off for the best<br />

part of 20 years. It’s been a bit of a<br />

roller coaster, but a hell of a ride!”<br />

she smiles. Cindy and hubby Morné<br />

Dorfling rekindled a friendship, which<br />

turned into romance, and the couple<br />

has been happily raising their six-year<br />

26 Get It <strong>Lowveld</strong> <strong>May</strong> 20<strong>24</strong><br />

old son Jamie in their hometown of<br />

Hazyview ever since. Cindy’s gorgeous<br />

range of bohemian-inspired kaftans,<br />

dresses and kimonos came about<br />

during Covid-19, when she realised<br />

she needed a change. Cindy’s hobby<br />

at the time was making beaded<br />

jewellery, and she thought, why not<br />

start selling it?<br />

“I loved being expressive and creative,<br />

and decided to give it a try. From<br />

beads I moved to kaftans and tie-dye.<br />

Why kaftans, you might ask? Well, they<br />

are light, comfortable and breezy,<br />

hide all manner of sin and I feel like a<br />

queen when I’m wearing mine,“<br />

she says.<br />

“Actually, a clothing line was never<br />

in the back of my mind and I had<br />

no idea what to expect. I wanted to<br />

make women feel like royalty, and<br />

as a larger-than-life lady myself, I<br />

understand the difficulty in finding<br />

outfits that fit loosely, fabric that<br />

breathes and patterns that don’t look<br />

like your grandma’s curtains. Tie-dye<br />

might not be everyone’s cup of tea,<br />

but the printed fabric I choose is bold<br />

and modern, combined with a lot<br />

of sexy and sass. I saw a need in the

market for more plus-size creations,<br />

and as it turned out, all sizes like my<br />

creations.”<br />

Cindy’s team is quite small at the<br />

moment, and consists of Cindy<br />

herself and Granny Khoza, a talented<br />

seamstress who helps with the<br />

sewing. For larger orders, she has<br />

Pieter and Elsie van Zyl of Cosmos<br />

Clothing assisting with bulk orders.<br />

The Earthly Collection range staples<br />

are kaftans, kimonos and maxi summer<br />

dresses, all sized up to fit the fuller<br />

figure comfortably. “As I have built my<br />

business on kaftans, I am surprised<br />

to see a remarkable increase in the<br />

maxi summer dresses. They are light<br />

and loose with shoulder straps, and<br />

pockets! The kimonos are just pure<br />

indulgence. The printed versions are<br />

Eastern-inspired with the large open<br />

sleeves and thick trim, whereas the<br />

tie-dye kimono represents a shawl or<br />

throw, giving the impression you are<br />

wearing a boho-chic jacket.”<br />

Cindy describes the process behind<br />

her outfits as a form of art. The fabric<br />

is washed and dried to get maximum<br />

shrinkage, then cut to size and sewn<br />

together. “At this point the fabric is<br />

a finished garment. This is when I<br />

perform my best magic trick and turn<br />

the blank canvas into a work of art,<br />

tying it into shapes that allow for bold<br />

expressive patterns as the dye seeps<br />

into all the nooks and crannies of the<br />

fabric. After completion I hang up the<br />

piece to dry, and just like an artist I feel<br />

a twinge of sadness that I can’t keep it.”<br />

From there the garments go on to their<br />

new owners, either via the online shop<br />

or local markets, which she describes<br />

as her support system and compass<br />

when she doubts herself. “I love going<br />

to the markets, and can’t see myself<br />

giving that up any time soon. I need<br />

the chitchat, to see old friends, make<br />

new ones. It’s more than just the sale,<br />

it’s the human connection, whether<br />

we are buying from one another or<br />

just fixing each other’s crowns. I love<br />

potential clients trying on an item and<br />

seeing that it fits beautifully. And most<br />

of all I love the smiles I get when I tell<br />

them: ‘The dress has no front, no back,<br />

no broeks, and no bra.’”<br />

Inspired by random acts of kindness,<br />

Cindy’s favourite way to spend time<br />

is with her son. “I love watching him<br />

play,” she smiles. “He has such a vivid<br />

imagination and thirst for knowledge,<br />

and wants to talk about snakes and<br />

crocodiles all day long! These are the<br />

things that are good for mental and<br />

emotional health, the soul connection.”<br />

Cindy’s future plans include harem<br />

pants and gypsy skirts, and we can’t<br />

wait to see them!<br />

A tail-wagging<br />

For some dogs, the mere idea of<br />

a car ride can induce anxiety and<br />

discomfort. The right approach and<br />

a few pertinent tips can ensure a<br />

comfortable and fun journey for both<br />

of you.<br />

Before embarking on a long road<br />

trip, it’s crucial to gradually familiarise<br />

your dog with the car if he or she<br />

isn’t used to it. Start by allowing your<br />

dog to explore the vehicle while<br />

it’s stationary, and reward positive<br />

behaviour with treats and praise to<br />

create a positive association with the<br />

car. Gradually increase the duration<br />

of these sessions, making sure your<br />

pup feels safe and relaxed inside the<br />

vehicle. Make car rides a positive<br />

and enjoyable experience for your<br />

dog by incorporating fun activities<br />

and rewards such as bringing along<br />

their favourite treats and toys to keep<br />

them entertained during the journey.<br />

If it’s a long journey, remember to<br />

schedule regular breaks for ablutions,<br />

stretching and fresh air to break up<br />

the monotony of the trip and allow<br />

30 Get It <strong>Lowveld</strong> <strong>May</strong> 20<strong>24</strong><br />

Travelling with four-legged friends should be<br />

an enriching experience, deepening the bond<br />

between you and your canine companion while<br />

you explore new destinations together.<br />

your dog to burn off excess energy.<br />

One of the best ways to do this<br />

is to invest in a comfortable and<br />

secure harness or carrier for your<br />

dog to ensure their safety during the<br />

journey. Additionally, bring along their<br />

favourite blanket or toy to provide<br />

a sense of familiarity and comfort.<br />

Consider placing a non-slip mat or<br />

towel on the seat to prevent your dog<br />

from slipping or sliding during the<br />

ride. You can protect your car’s interior<br />

from muddy paw prints, shedding<br />

and the like by using canvas covers<br />

specifically designed for pet travel.<br />

These durable covers provide an<br />

easy-to-clean barrier, ensuring that<br />

your car stays clean and odour-free<br />

throughout the journey. It’s also worth<br />

considering always having a clean-up<br />

kit consisting of paper towels, wipes<br />

and plastic bags at hand.<br />

Many animals are prone to anxiety<br />

during car rides. Consider using<br />

calming aids such as pheromone<br />

sprays, calming supplements (Rescue<br />

Remedies work like a charm) or a<br />

comforting piece of clothing with<br />

your scent. Additionally, play soothing<br />

music or white noise to create a<br />

relaxing atmosphere inside the car.<br />

Gradually increase the duration and<br />

frequency of car rides to help your<br />

dog get used to the experience.

Tips for a stress-free journey:<br />

Plan ahead<br />

If you are travelling far and/or staying<br />

over somewhere, it’s a good idea to<br />

research pet-friendly accommodations<br />

and attractions along your route. This<br />

will help to ensure a smooth and<br />

enjoyable journey for both of you.<br />

Stay hydrated<br />

Keep a supply of fresh water and a<br />

travel bowl on hand to ensure your<br />

dog stays hydrated during the trip.<br />

Safety first<br />

Never ever leave your dog unattended<br />

in a parked car, especially in hot<br />

weather. Ensure proper ventilation and<br />

temperature control inside the vehicle<br />

at all times.<br />

Consult your vet<br />

If your dog experiences severe<br />

anxiety or motion sickness during car<br />

rides, consult your veterinarian for<br />

personalised advice and treatment<br />

options.<br />

Travelling with a pet can be a<br />

rewarding experience. Not only will<br />

you be exploring new destinations<br />

together, but you’ll be creating lasting<br />

memories while doing so. Always<br />

ensure your pet’s comfort and safety,<br />

and take the correct steps to prevent<br />

anxiety. By doing this, you set the<br />

stage for a stress-free and enjoyable<br />

adventure for both you and your<br />

canine companion. So pack your<br />

bags, buckle up and embark on a tailwagging<br />

journey with your best friend<br />

by your side. Happy travels!
