Mixing It Up With Qaanita Orrie

Cape Town blogger, Qaanita Orrie joins our host, Marina Minx for the last show of 2017.


Qaanita shares her inspiring journey with our listeners, chats about the power of being an influencer and her plans for a Cape Town summer with Havaianas.

Every year, this time, I’m either hidden away at a private beach, trying out new café’s with friends or just lounging at the pool with a good book. Even though Cape Town has so much more to offer, I’m the typical laid back kind of girl that indulges in the city’s natural summer aura.

One of the most exciting things right now is that I get to work with Havaianas, one of my favorite brands. And even though I genuinely wear them all year round, summer is it’s time to shine!

We caught up with Qaanita and asked her a few questions:

December is the free-spirited sister of our summer months. How do you embody this free-spirited attitude?

“Living in the moment and not being afraid to try new things, visit new places and make new friends. It’s basically living for the present with no regrets, only lessons.”

Favourite Cape Town summer spots/activities?

“Llandudno beach is one of my favourite places to go too for a good tan and fresh air. It’s so beautiful and you’re bound to meet a few interesting people.

A little place close to home with impeccable food is Lou Lou’s in the Cape Quarter. Their Seared Tuna and Lamb & Pea croquettes are 2 dishes everyone should try! If I’m not there then I’m most probably stuffing my face with sushi somewhere like Beluga, Willoughby’s or Sevruga. Another place I love to go is the putt-putt range in Durbanville. The course runs through a beautiful garden and is way more intense than the one in Greenpoint. It is loads of fun and a good laugh with friends and family.”

What do you always have in your travel bag during summer?

“I’m a heavy traveler, firstly, but my top ten list?”

  1. Sunscreen (Duh!)
  2. A fully charged cellphone
  3. Lip balm
  4. Bright pair of Havaianas.
  5. Wet wipes
  6. Hat/Fedora

The Havaianas summer campaign is also about “endless energy”. How do you keep the high energy during the busiest season?

“I always have my diary on hand so even when my day seems crazy, I’m on track with what needs to be done, I keep track of time and always stay hydrated.A huge must, is always having a pair of Havaianas in my handbag or car so I can kick off my heels and give my feet a break. It makes running between meetings and shoots a whole lot easier and a lot faster”.

It goes without saying that almost everyone, anywhere in the world owns at least one pair of Havaianas. It’s the shoe that we all live in but is so often overlooked. It’s simple, practical and genuinely becomes your best friend, throughout any season. I honestly live in mine and will eventually have the ‘Havi’ tan on my foot to prove it after summer.
