Thanks for the memories, Greece

Thanks for the memories, Greece

We’ve come to the end of our amazing two week trip to Greece and it feels like we’ve experienced and seen so much! I’m sure I’ve put on about 20kg’s in delicious Greek calories and I’ve seen some of the most beautiful sights of my short life.  I can’t wait to tell you all about our […]

Street Food on Bree

Street Food on Bree

Whenever I come across a fantastic new restaurant in Cape Town, I become so excited about it that it’s all I can talk about for a couple of days. “Have you been to this place?”, “How come no one told me about how great this place is?” “I went to this place the other day […]

Recent Experiences In Fashion

Recent Experiences In Fashion

I wouldn’t describe myself as a fashion blogger or list “shopping” and “fashion” as two of my hobbies. I mean, I wear clothes and I like finding nice ones, but fashion isn’t a preoccupation of mine. That said, I like to watch trends and experiment with them. I might incorporate one or two new items […]

Prepping for Greece

Prepping for Greece

You know when you start planning a trip and it’s months and months away and it seems like the time to board the plane will absolutely never come and then suddenly you’re like, 5 sleeps away? I leave for Greece on Monday morning and I am slowly but surely busy prepping for 12 days away. […]

Oh Goodness, Dear Me

Oh Goodness, Dear Me

When I’m planning a special dinner, or I want to treat a friend for their birthday, I book a table at The White Room at Dear Me. On the level between the sunny Dear Me eatery and the ultra-trendy Tjing Tjing Bar (who serve the absolute best cocktails in Cape Town, by the way), the […]

Summer’s Here: The Sansui Summer Cup

Have I ever told you that my grandpa was a jockey? In fact, he was a really good jockey. Despite being one of the tallest (and heaviest) jockeys the country has ever seen, he won the title at the Durban July and the Met and when he passed away the horse racing channel aired an […]

Steenberg Farm #visitSteenberg

Steenberg Farm #visitSteenberg

I was recently invited to spend the weekend at Steenberg Farm out in Constantia. Even though I lived just around the corner for about a year, I never really visited the farm. You know how it is. Sometimes we don’t notice the beauty right under our noses. I was blown away by the five star […]

RTD 2014: A timeline

RTD 2014: A timeline

This year, we needed to be in Cape Town on Saturday morning, so we could only get through to Rocking The Daisies in the afternoon. In my youth (last year) it was a race to get out of the office on Friday, battling through throngs of traffic, arriving in Darling just in time to set […]

An Unusual Pairing: Rabbit & Riesling

An Unusual Pairing: Rabbit & Riesling

A couple of weeks ago, I was invited to an unusual food and wine pairing at Camissa Brasserie at the Table Bay Hotel. I’ve been to lots of food and wine pairings before,  but this one was truly unique and I couldn’t wait to see what the chefs had come up with. Three starters and […]

1 Year. The ever-loving best.

1 Year. The ever-loving best.

For people my age, sharing your relationship on social media is a catch-22. Like, on the one hand, you’re excited about it and you’re proud of the person you’re with. You want people to see them and think “wow, now there’s a catch!”. You want things to be Facebook Official. You also want to ward […]
