Since we’re on lockdown and disinfecting everything in sight, we thought it a good idea to remind you to clean your wallet and the cards in them as well. These small plastic items in your purse could be harbouring harmful bacteria at the best of times and it’s more important than ever to keep your cards clean.

Following the lockdown extension announcement just before the Easter long weekend, we thought it’s a good idea to give you some things to keep busy with these extra two weeks.

Even before the current lockdown, some of us were lucky enough to have found ourselves working from home to help stop the spread of the coronavirus and to help #flattenthecurve. Have you found your groove yet? There’s plenty of advantages; an extra hour in bed and not behind the steering wheel, no dress code, unlimited coffee and snacks, but it does have its challenges too.

Just a week after the COVID-19 virus was declared a National State of Emergency in South Africa, President Ramaphosa addressed the nation again to announce a nation-wide lockdown as of Thursday 26 March for 3 weeks.

Please do not panic, but please be careful! If all of us take the necessary precautions, whether you are at risk or not, we can #FlattenTheCurve together.

So, we’ve almost made it through the first week of March and the daily commute is getting you down. We know the feeling. Even though remote work or work from home opportunities are on the rise, most of the workforce either needs to be physically present to do their jobs or work for a company who has yet to embrace the freedom of working from home. Not to mention all the young ones on their way to school every day of the week. 

We’re just about ready to say goodbye to a sweltering summer and welcome autumn when the leaves turn brown, we cool off and slow down. But that doesn’t mean we have to stay at home and wish away the days. Here are a few events that will keep you on your toes all the way into mid-April. Mark your calendars, get your tickets, and get ready to party!

Most things in life don’t come free, but every 4 years, on a leap year, we get a whole extra day in the lovely month of February completely ‘mahala’, ‘gratis’, free! 2020 is a leap year, this means we have an extra day to live our life to the fullest. This year, our free day falls on a Saturday, so you are free to do whatever you want with your bonus 24 hours.
