Looking for fab accessories or boutiques? Check out Kevin McLennan’s top picks here.
Best accessory shop:
Brands Luv U is my absolute essential spot when it comes to getting new accessories for my wardrobe. What’s great is that it has tons of international brands on the shelves that you may have not seen and that other stores don’t have.
Best beauty mecca (spa):
Kloofzicht Lodge & Spa is my home away from home in the Zwartkops Mountains. It’s not too far, but it feels as if you’re in a completely different zone once you’re there. Definitely a must if you’re looking to recharge or have a relaxing day out with your friends or that special someone!
Best clothing store for her:
Nicci Boutiques has the most gorgeous selection of female clothing that differs every season. It’s completely on- point with trends and all the girls I know are mad about it!
Best clothing store for him:
For the ultimate in men’s clothing, my favourite place is H&M Man in Sandton City. Whether you’re looking for causal, formal or just essentials, H&M really does have the best selection in town and with great prices too.
Best exclusive boutique:
Diaan Daniels is the most exclusive boutique that offers formal wear for men and women. His clothing is absolutely breathtaking and wearing his couture out to events and special occasions makes you feel (and look) really good!
Best hair salon:
LDR Salon is definitely my favourite place to get my hair cut and styled on a regular basis. The staff is friendly and completely up to date on the hottest hair trends.
Best jewellery store:
When buying jewellery for anyone special in my life, I always head to Pandora. There’s always something special for any lady who deserves a treat or any guy who wants something unusual to wear!
Best place to buy beauty products:
My essential one-stop shop for all things beauty is Stuttafords. Whether I’m looking for skincare, cologne or even just some essentials like body wash, Stuttafords has all my favourite brands under one roof.
Best shoe shop:
Hydraulics Store is my one-stop shoe shopping destination for sneakers and shoes. It has brands like Giuseppe Zannoti, Replay and more! It’s practically a shopper’s paradise when it comes to clothing too!
