Not Just A South African Blog
Born and raised in the Western Cape in South Africa, I created Dirty Pink City as a kind of documentary of living in the city. Like a scrapbook of all the different experiences of growing up in one of the most exciting cities in the world – Cape Town. Cape Town Blog
When I first moved to the Mother City, in an apartment at the foot of Table Mountain, I was all by myself and had this constant need to write about everything I experienced. I didn’t really have anything specific in mind. At the time time, everyone wanted to be an SA fashion blogger, it wasn’t exactly my scene, and the South African music bloggers wrote stiff, formal reviews and articles. So eventually, I just wrote about everything I enjoyed in my own way – a personal and lifestyle blog.
These days you will often spot me around the city taking pictures, attending live music events or having fun at the beach. That is why I like Cape Town: All my favourite things in one city.
I grew up in a family of creatives and they taught me a great love for music, art and fashion. After school, I spent a lot of my time in the theatre and I got taught how to write plays, sew costumes, build sets, manage sound and lighting and work very very long hours.
When reading this blog you will find everything that is really close to my heart; a lot of rock music, SA music festivals, some fashion, a lot of travel, a little bit of art and beauty and some theatre. If you like it, great. And if you don’t, then bye!
See you around Cape Town!
