Meet South Africa: A Weekend In The Bush

Meet South Africa: A Weekend In The Bush

An American, Canadian, Kuwaiti and three South Africans speak in hushed tones as the sun sets over the African bush… We were on a safari in the Kruger National Park and with every minute of the setting sun, the temperature seemed to drop by at least half a degree. We pulled our blankets tighter around […]

Things To Do In Cape Town: A Day In The Swartland

I was recently invited to head out to the Swartland for brunch at Adi Badenhorst’s farm with his family. I hadn’t met the great winemaker before, but I’m so happy that I did. Adi and his family are just the most wonderful people and their farm, Kalmoesfontein, is like heaven on Earth. Not to mention his spectacular […]

A Weekend At Grootbos

A Weekend At Grootbos

A few weeks ago, my bestie MEJ and I spent a lazy weekend eating, napping and taking in nature’s beauty in cozy 5 star comfort as the rain came down in buckets outside. Sometimes, all you need is a weekend away with a girlfriend at a beautiful lodge, chatting, chocolating and spending hours trying to […]

#DiscoverHelderberg: Things to do in the Helderberg

#DiscoverHelderberg: Things to do in the Helderberg

I recently spent some time exploring the Helderberg for Cape Town Tourism. Capetonians often overlook the Somerset West, Gordon’s Bay and Sir Lowrie’s Pass region (myself included), so I was really surprised by how beautiful it was and how much there is to see and do. I spend loads of money of wine for my […]

I’d been invited by Sedgwick’s to experience […]

Incredible India…I’m Coming For You

I am absolutely obsessed with visiting India. OBSESSED. This obsession started years ago, with my love for the cooking channel. At the time, I was presenting a kid’s TV show and watching loads and loads of cooking shows. While other kids were watching Cartoon Network, I was watching shows like Ready Steady Cook. My favourites […]
