Sandton City & Nelson Mandela Square

Nelson Mandela square is in Sandton Johannesburg. Sandton City which is adjacent to Nelson Mandela Square forms one of the largest malls in South Africa.

This is one of my favourite malls. It’s close to me and I love shopping here or just going over for lunch or dinner.

In Sandton City there is a section of the mall called the diamond walk where you can find stores like Gucci, Burberry, Dolce & Gabana and Louis Vuittone etc. There are other stores like Forever 21, H&M, forever New, Zara, Hamleys, Cartier and many other stores.

I’ve been to a few malls but I always prefer this mall. In Nelson Mandela square there is a piazza with different restaurants. I love having dinner at Wangthai, overlooking the piazza area. You will also notice a statue of Nelson Mandela here. There’s always a line of tourists waiting to take pictures next to the statue of Nelson Mandela.

If you’re in Johannesburg you should definitely visit this mall.

Rose water

I love natural or organic stuff. Rose water has got to be one of the ingredients from the kitchen that I absolutely love. It can be used as a toner or as a spritzer as well as to balance the ph of the skin. You can make your own rose water with a few rose petals in distilled water. It soothes and calms sunburned skin. It may even be used as an aftershave to soothe irritated skin.
