About

The Pretty Blog was founded in 2010 by by Christine Meintjes, an international, award-winning photographer.

The Pretty Blog is a media company. We showcase stories (whether it’s personal or brand related) that tie in with our aesthetic and brand values. With a very strong curated approach, The Pretty Blog only showcases stories that are relevant to our audience. We believe in partnering with brands that trust our approach and allows us to translate their brand into a message that will appeal and resonate with our audience. We have become the daily read for thousands of women, that keep coming back because they trust us for picking only the best products, services, people and companies; rather than continuously ‘spamming’ them with media releases. In short, The Pretty Blog has become their ‘best girl friend’, sharing ideas, places, products and services that only ‘she’ would personally use, invest and buy.

The Pretty Blog reaches an estimate digital reach of 350 000 people per month.

The Pretty Blog has also been featured in numerous national and international publications, appeared on national television and we’re proud to say we’ve been awarded multiple awards. But we’re the proudest of our ever growing loyal audience.

The Pretty Blog is run from Stellenbosch, South Africa, by a team of dedicated people.

(While you page through The Pretty Blog, you might think you’re only looking at pretty words and pictures, but at the core it’s all little ones and zeros keeping our content together. So a little shout out and HUGE THANKS to the two amazingly dedicated guys behind Plus Plus Minus, our in-house development team. Without you there would be no pretty.)
