A little bit of this and a little bit of that

Tomato Tart

I Make My Version Of A Tomato Tart

There is one thing I always have in my freezer, something that comes is rather handy and possibly something you don’t always keep in yours. Ready Made Puff Pastry, this is key and I’m going to tell you why. Besides pastry being simply delicious and moreish it is great to use to make both starters […]

On Top Of The World

We Were On Top Of The World At the Burj Khalifa

When planning our trip to Dubai, Rik, Justin, Van and myself had a Whatsapp group where we’d chat, plan and get excited about the upcoming trip. Ok when I say plan I mean Vanessa and I would discuss details like visa requirements and so on and so forth whereas the boys would send joke pics […]

Amy Larter Debut Album Launch

Razzle Dazzle At The Amy Larter Debut Album Launch

Wowza kapowza! I have told you before about my incredibly talented friend, Amy Larter, and a few weeks ago I was privileged enough to attend her DEBUT Album Launch. It is exciting enough when you go to something as awesome as this, but even more so when she is one of your nearest and dearest. […]

Off to Dubai We Go

Off to Dubai We Went

Hoooooooooooliday! Yes please! Rik and I organised a tip to Dubai to visit old school friends of Rik’s who live and work there. I thought I’d get that out the way before you were asking why Dubai. We had 11 days of bliss (but more of that later). I just wanted to let ya’ll know […]

Was the Great Gatsby So Great

Was The Great Gatsby so Great?

I’ve just got in from watching the latest Baz Luhrmann “The Great Gatsby” and I’m really stumped at what to think. Having studied the film as my matric setwork more than 10 years ago, even though I drew the short straw by having the worst English teacher on the planet, whose teaching methods were nothing […]

Lemon Tart

I Make Lemon Tart

I have mentioned before that I like to bake. Something about it makes me feel very relaxed. So when I was going for Sunday lunch with the parentals I decided to bring the pudding. Also, Sunday was when my parentals were expecting to meet the Japanese ballet dancer who will be dancing with the Cape […]

Lashes or Tashes?

Lashes or Tashes?

Since you only turn 30 once I think a birthday party is fitting. But for a number of reasons I couldn’t have a party near my actual birthday and Rik was in Bots until March, so March it was. I wanted some kind of dress up, but also something that would be relatively easy for […]

I Luv Street Art

I ♥ Street Art

I know I’m as writing this it that not everyone will agree with my opinion (I think the Wam might be one of those – I remember having a big discussion with her when I was back in varsity), but lets have it out. Tell me what you think and why … Because I am […]

Amazeballs Tabasco Burger

Amazeballs Tabasco Burger

When Rik was down last we went out for lunch with his sister and old family friends to Jake’s in the Village (which is in Tokai and was a nice meeting point for us all). Just a bit of background to the restaurant, Jake’s on Summerly is just down the road from me in Kenilworth […]

Herbs from my garden

My First Herbs From My Herb Box

Remember my parentals gave me a herb box for Christmas? If not read the post here. But it had a chilli plant and flat leaf parsley, I am a bit rubbish at keeping plants alive so I was beyond excited when I discovered by chilli plant didn’t only have leaves but chilli’s as well. I […]

Korean box of suplises

I ♥ My Korean Suplise Box of Treats

I have told you before about how much I love post – not the kind that is a bill and is asking for money for things like electricity and telephone bills – but the fun postcard and letters from friends kind. One such exciting letter to get in the postbox is one letting you know […]

Laugh Love

It’s Friday – don’t forget to Laugh and Love

Just a little bit of Friday inspiration. You gotta remember to dream big, love fiercely and laugh loudly! Do something this weekend that makes you so happy you feel giddy. It doesn’t matter what it is –  if it’s taking a long hot bath, going for a run; baking something; phoning an old friend just […]

Do You Remember These?

Isn’t it fun when you find things that bring back a ton of memories? I’m a child of the 80’s and 90’s – the 80’s I remember a lot but I think I was still too young to remember trends and brands. But the 90’s I do remember. Thank goodness the fashion has changed from […]

Hout Bay Walk

I ♥ Hout Bay Beach Walks

Isn’t this city just beautiful, within 20 minutes drive in any direction you’ll get to one of the most magnificent views anywhere. I only have to look out of my window at home to see my view; a take a short drive to see a stunning Sea Point Sunset or perhaps go on a hike […]

Cake Pops!

I Make Cake Pops

I have found a new luv, it’s baking! Something about the measuring of ingredients feels quite cathartic. So when I got a cake pop tray from Nic for my birthday (thanks my friend) I was eager to try these suckers out (see what I did there?!). If you don’t know what a cake pop is […]
