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 […]

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. […]

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 […]

Eat Cape Town: Waterkloof Wines

Eat Cape Town: Waterkloof Wines

The Waterkloof Wines estate is pretty much candy for the eyes in every possible direction. Three-hundred-and-sixty-degrees. Delicious. From the scenic drive through the vineyard up to the tasting venue, to the floor to ceiling glass restaurant that offers views all the way to the blue waters of Gordon’s Bay. The aptly-named “cellar in the sky” […]
