Watch This: Bridesmaids

Watch This: Bridesmaids

I had a bit of rant today about the worst movie I’ve ever seen and about how Hollywood has been disappointing me lately. (I’m talking to you Peter Jackson with The Lovely Bones) Then came Bridesmaids and saved the day. Produced by one of my favourite people I’ve never met, Judd Apatow, this movie is […]

Cook This: Legumes & Greens

Cook This: Legumes & Greens

GREENS LEGUMES I recently survived Meat Free Monday. Now there’s something I thought I’d never say. But it’s true. This is how I did it. Tonight I made another super healthy yet still delicious meal using a variety of legumes and some fresh green veggies. WHAT THE HELL ARE LEGUMES?!?!“Legumes” is pretty much the collective […]

Just Sitting Around, Thinking About What A Terrible Movie “Splice” Was

I’ve been very disappointed in movies lately. Hollywood it seems, has been spending too much time making movies about explosions and wasting Shia Le Bouf’s time on more Transformer movies when he could be making movies that I want to watch. Recent movies that I hated include: Thor, X-Men: First Class, and every other movie […]

I Would NEVER Have Survived “127 Hours’

Blogger is being a little bitch and not allowing me to upload any pictures. So in your minds eye…or just on Google images…find a picture of the poster for the movie 127 Hours starring (the delicious) James Franco and imagine I started this post with it. I recently watched 127 Hours alone. I’m going to […]

This Saturday is the official launch of the new Heart Bay (Hout Bay to those of your who don’t live in The Republic) Bay Harbour Market. Nash and I were there a couple of weeks ago for the “unofficial opening” and between the music, food, booze and vibe…things got a little festive. Yes, I mean afternoon […]

Meat Free Monday

Meat Free Monday

I can’t believe I’m writing a post with the title “Meat Free”…anything! Meat is Life! But… I’ve decided that I really truly need to step up my healthy eating and going meat-free a couple of days a week just seems like a really good idea. Tonight I made a delicious Chickpea Salad that was so […]
