Those that have followed me for a year will have noticed when I go for a facial or massage I usually mention The Entertainer app followed by how amazing it is! Well that is because it is. It has saved me so much money on things that we don’t usually treat ourselves with. For me, that is a facial or a massage as well as eating out.
What is The Entertainer
The Entertainer is an app that you download, and then you create an account and buy the deals for the whole year for a once off fee. It was started in Dubai and it has made its way to our fine shores. There are TONS of deals and they only expire at the end of December 2017. There are so many, that I didn’t even get through a tenth of them in the whole year of 2016! All of the deals are Buy One Get One Free so you are basically getting half price everywhere! Such a win in my book.
Apart from the beauty and fitness side, there are also plenty of activities to do. Just a few from around SA are the big swing, kite surfing, surf lessons, animal farms, renting bicycles and so many more! The food deals are amazing and there are a stack of drinks deals as well. There are so many incredible restaurants that I only tried last year because of this app, and I am so glad I did.
For the salon treatments, you can be nice and take a friend with you, OR you can be like me and save the second one for yourself 😉 #SorryNotSorry. How that works, is you pay for the first one, then the next time you go you redeem your free one on the app! It makes beauty care so much more affordable, especially when it’s a Dermalogica facial. Am I right ladies? When I bought it and used it for my first facial, I made back the money I paid for it in THE FIRST DEAL! I still had hundreds of deals to use after that.
If you want to buy it but save 10% then use GIJane at checkout for a discount!

Have you got your app and getting your saving on?
I met Heather on a trip to Cape Town for Gillette Venus Swirl. We met at the airport and straight away you could tell she was so spunky, bright and a pleasure to be around. Heather shares her travels around South Africa, and it’s so refreshing to see it from an American’s view. She makes me want to travel through Joburg and see more of our country!
Lets get to know Heather Mason…
What does healthy mean to you?
To me, healthy means living a life that makes me happy and doing everything in moderation.
What is your chosen form of exercise?
Boxing. I train three mornings a week at the Hillbrow Boxing Club in Johannesburg. I also do an occasional short run.
What does your way of health eating look like?
I used to be a lot more careful about what I eat: making an effort to eat only whole grains; buying local whenever possible; limiting fat, sugar, and processed foods; and eating tons of fresh fruit and vegetables every day. This is still what healthy eating looks like for me, but I must admit I’ve lost some of my discipline since moving from the U.S. to South Africa in 2010. I struggle to find the time to shop for super-healthy food (a time-consuming process in Joburg, because you have to visit so many different shops), and life as a travel blogger exposes me to a lot of naughty (but delicious) food. And to be honest I’ve just decided that life is too short 🙂
What is your passion project?
My blog, of course! I’ve made a life in South Africa for myself through my blog, and it means the world to me.
What does a typical day look like for you?
I work as a freelance writer and photographer, and no day is ever the same. But here’s one example of a day: I get up at 6:00 a.m. and drive to the Hillbrow Boxing Club for a morning workout. Come home, have coffee and breakfast, check emails and Instagram, catch up on work and write a blog post. In the afternoon, go out an do something in the city — visit a friend’s art gallery, go fabric-shopping at the Oriental Plaza, check out a new coffee shop that I want to blog about. Take pictures. Come home, have dinner, and hang out with my boyfriend and my cat. Go to bed early.
What would you like people to know about you?
Wow, that’s a difficult question to answer. I guess I want people to know that I’m genuine and real, both in my blog and in life.
What would you like people to know about your work/business?
I’m a storyteller. I love telling stories about my life in South Africa, and particularly my life in Johannesburg. I feel very privileged that I’ve been able to make a living out of doing that.
Favourite workout song?
“Mama Said Knock You Out” by LL Cool J.
Favourite exercise and why?
Boxing pad work. I’ve participated in many different sports and exercise programs in my life, but boxing provides the best full-body workout of anything I’ve ever done.
I kind of hate quotes. But I guess my most useful piece of advice would be: Accept yourself for who you are and let go of everything that doesn’t matter.
