Who doesn’t know and love beauty brand Sorbet? And while lockdown has deprived us of going for our manis and pedis, we can now luckily get our hands on their scrumptious products again! And, if you’ve been following them on social media (@sorbetgroup), you’ll know that they’ve been sharing tips on keeping healthy physically, emotionally and mentally.

Says Sorbet’s group marketing manager Sapna Naran, “As a community we’ll get through this together. The Sorbet Group has a guiding value that has always been ‘people before profit’. Even during this time of crisis, our values remain core and our focus will always be our people.”

It’s been close to four long weeks of lockdown but at some point in the future we’ll all be able to once again enjoy the great outdoors.

Whether it’s grabbing your backpack and hitting the trail or swapping it out for a laptop backpack and heading back to work to join in the hustle and bustle of the city, you’ll want a pack you can rely on and not slow you down.

Thule backpacks are trusted and are stylish, safe, and easy to use – and tough enough to follow you wherever you want to go.
Short adventures, just for a few hours or a full day, require light bags with good packing capabilities, especially for electronic devices. With these adventures in mind, Thule has introduced a new product family: Thule Paramount, a series of innovative, smart carry solutions designed to meet the needs of urban wanderers. Available exclusively at, the new line of bags are easy to pack and will keep your cellphone, laptop or tablet safe.

The new collection includes the Thule Paramount Crossbody Bag with generous padding and anti-theft features so you can carry your laptop and other accessories safely and securely. The removable, adjustable shoulder strap and top grab handle ensures you’ll carry in comfortable and the magnetic flap closure provides added security to the main compartments. There are also multiple pockets to keep all your essentials organised.

The Thule Paramount Backpacks (24L or 27L), available in Black and Olivine, are the perfect weather-resistant commuter backpacks with unique access points and plenty of space for your workday essentials.

They offer a protective carriage for your laptop and other day-to-day essentials. You can also keep all your cords, chargers and accessories safe and organised while you’re on the go with the Thule Paramount Cord Organisers – durable pouches that are available in small and medium sizes depending on how much gear you have.


One lucky reader stands a chance of winning a R2,500 voucher to spend at Thule’s online store. For more details, visit the Neighbourhood Facebook page (@YourNeighbourhoodSA).
