About The Blog

Our lifestyle blog aims to empower women through 4 lifestyle products namely fashion, body positivity, travel, food, and wine.

The Authentic Girl is a body positive activist who promotes the message, “all bodies are good bodies”. Through these conversations, we want to show women that diversity matters and there is no wrong way to have a body. Our aim is to change the conversation and raise awareness about the body positive movement. “The fashion and body positivity segment is strongly related, showing that women of all shapes and sizes can celebrate their bodies. I love sharing fashion styles, tips and trends. In addition to being a body positive activist, Megan is a firm believer in the power of body confidence. You’ll find a combination of body positive and body confident messages combined with fashion.

Megan is an official #StyleChatZA host, a weekly Twitter chat that focuses on fashion and style trends relevant to South Africa. It’s an online platform for all South Africans to join in every week and exchange, connect and discuss weekly topics relating to style and fashion trends. Whether you work in the fashion industry or simply have an interest, #StyleChatZA provides a fun, safe and nurturing platform to express yourself and gain insight into what’s happening with the local style scene.

The Authentic Girl has her finger firmly placed on travel, food and wine trends in South Africa, a subject she is deeply passionate about. “I want to show the world that South Africa has world-class food, wine and travel experiences in our backyard. There’s something magical about dining out in Cape Town, whilst enjoying a glass of wine.”

The Authentic Girl is actively involved in the #TravelChatSA community, arranging unique travel experiences for bloggers and is an official host of the weekly chat on Twitter. She co-hosts the #TravelChatSA show on Hashtag radio. #TravelChatSA is an online travel chat and resource designed to showcase the unique travel experience in South Africa.
