Woman Crush Wednesday: Liezel van der Westhuizen

We chat with radio presenter and all-round beauty Liezel van der Westhuizen to find out her favourite hangouts, pastimes, & her next big adventure!

She goes by the nickname Giraffe, and has a popular blog called ‘Giraffe in the City’ – but to us, she’s that fun, energetic and sporty TV icon that’s stolen our hearts over the past few years!

She’s graced many magazines, and is known for her adventure style and even more enthusiastic hairstyles! When she’s not on radio, attending events, or shooting for magazines, she’s out and about cycling and enjoying her new hobby of roller-skating.
