South African Lifestyle Blogger


Hello, I am Megan and welcome to my little home on the Internet! I’m so glad you dropped by.

About me

About The Blog

I started The Authentic Girl blog in 2014 as a platform to share the things I love. My website focuses on topics related to food, fashion, empowerment, beauty, events and lifestyle.

Essence SA

These days I find myself focusing more on food, beauty and fashion because that’s what resonates with me and my readers. I am especially passionate about the culinary and fashion scene. My obsession with food started at a young age with my Mom, who cooks/bakes the most amazing dishes, and cultivated my taste buds. As for fashion, I’ve always loved it! I love local and international designers, their creativity inspires me. And of course, shopping happens to be a hobby of mine too.

I am a firm believer in a healthy balanced person and therefore another topic I am passionate about is empowerment of the mind, body and spirit. I share beauty product reviews, upcoming events and tales from my travel adventures. Please note that all the photographs are taken by me (unless otherwise stated).  By sharing my reviews, I will keep you updated on the latest trends.
