LS, the Sunday Times Lifestyle Magazine, is a much-loved and trusted section of the paper, created each week by a team of highly skilled professionals.
We provide an informed, sassy, provocative take on South African culture and beyond.
Sometimes serious, often funny, LS combines the finest writing with the most dynamic images to create editorial packages covering everything from tattoo parlours and transgender surgery to cat shows and The Queen’s birthday.
Our mission is to reflect the excitement, pleasure and inspiration of real-life South Africa with all its creativity, humour and fascination, providing respite from life’s daily problems and frustrations.
Our content is wildly varied, always entertaining and consistently unique, making LS a pleasurably anticipated reading experience every Sunday.
