One word which instantly comes to mind as I think of the PUMA Suede Mayu is VIBRANT! A chic take on the classic suede. “I love a platform that works across so many looks, day to night. The Suede Mayu is versatile, it’s the perfect everyday shoe!” – Dua Lipa I can’t exactly say that it was love at first sight as I was so confused as to how I would rock such a vibrant pair of sneakers.

Over the past weekend, I had the the most thrilling experience of travelling 1 200KM with Ford South Africa on an all female led drive with a mission. We drove from East London and made our way to Johannesburg – such a great was to explore the beautiful South African landscape while taking the Ford baddies for a spin, and of course demonstrating the “Can’t Help But Help” ethos of Living the RangeHer life. Over the three days, I had the opportunity of driving the Ford WildTrak, Ford Ranger Thunder and the Ford Raptor.

Not only did we get the opportunity to explore the beautiful Eastern Cape and all its scenic views, we also got to…
