#RainbowFriday: the South African expat’s Friday shopping feature #21

August 26, 2016

It’s here! The last weekend of August and the non-official end of winter in the southern hemispheres and summer in the northern hemispheres.

For us Southerners this means dusting off the old braai and getting our beach bodies in shape as we head off into spring. Of course this also means doing a bit of spring cleaning and stocking up on our best-loved South African goodies. So sit tight and join us for another instalment of Rainbow Friday.
