Eat Play Luv

A little bit of this and a little bit of that

Dvd collection

I ♥ My DVD Collection

I am waiting for the judgement because it always comes. I have met very very few people who are overly excited / at all excited about my dvd collection. It makes me sad because I think it is tres fabulous. You’ll be hard pressed to find a James Bond or Tarantino or other such classic […]

Ash or Rot?

Ash or Rot?

Do not let this photograph deceive you – it really is a pretty picture (taken from my balcony), but I didn’t really have anything else that fits with this post. Today at work we all sat down and ate some delish snacky food from Woolies and had a good old natter. I’m not really sure […]

Chinese Take Away

The BEST Chinese Take Away in Cape Town

Oh me oh my, how I love a good spring roll, combine that with a bit of sweet and sour pork and perhaps some beef chow mein and you have 1x happy camper. My friend Kitty and I have a little treat when we have dinner. Instead of going out to a restaurant or one […]

A Random Mug

I ♥ Random Mugs

First off my apologies to the people in this photograph on this mug, I have no idea who you are … however I suspect you would like to remain anonymous! A good friend just moved into a flat in Green Point and we decided to pay her a visit while she was getting settled in. […]

Granny Emily's Paintings

I ♥ My Great Granny Emily’s Paintings

My great granny Emily was somewhat of an artist. Don’t get me wrong she isn’t famous, but she was rather talented. My grandpa’s home in Onrus was always a special place to visit because in each room and nearly every wall there was a painting of his mom’s and each had a story to go […]

Shelly Point

A Fun Weekend In Shelley Point

A few weeks ago we headed down to my friends house in Shelley Point on the Cape West Coast. This is one of my favourite weekend destinations. It is only about 2.5 hours away from the city but it feels like a million miles away. We were lucky and the good weather followed us, leaving […]

Caels Quote

I ♥ Great Quotes

I may have mentioned this before, but I have some wonderful friends. Lately I’ve been spending time with the most splendid friend Ms Caels Ashley Cooper and she has been schooling me on many things. A good time was had by all, but mostly by us … We’ve got to talking of late and have […]

Song Title Dress Up

Cos Everybody Loves A Dress Up – Candy’s ‘Song Title’ 30th

Ok, perhaps not everyone loves to dress up, but I sure do! And I always seem to go to the extreme. I don’t really see the point in dressing up if you’re not going to look any different from a normal night out. My varsity friend and her husband throw the best dress up parties. […]

Princess of RSA

The Fresh Princess of RSA

Right kids, so I am pretty sure if you grew up in the 1990’s you will know all about the Fresh Prince of Bel Air. I don’t think I have one friend who can’t sing the song from start to finish … You know which one I mean … “In West Philidelphia born and raised […]

Show Cupboard

I ♥ My Shoe Cupboard

I may have a slight obsession with shoes … this may or may not be evident from my shoe cupboard. When I moved into my flat last year there was a relatively large linen cupboard in the entrance hall area. Since I only own enough linen to fit on 1 shelf and enough pairs of […]

Veggie Burger

Veggie Burgers

Who doesn’t enjoy a burger? I certainly do and one of my favourite to make at home is a veggie burger. I know all the meat eaters out there are cringing and say no no no a burger without meat? Believe me when I say I’m not saying all burgers should be meat free, I […]

Birthday Herbs

Birthday Herbs

I found this pic on my phone the other day and I thought I’d share it. A friend surprised me with these lovely potted herbs as a present for my birthday in Feb. She bought the plants and then repotted them in those cool little tin buckets, she even made sure to make holes in […]

Reenies Prawns

Reen’s Delish Prawns

I am really glad I don’t have my dad’s shellfish allergy … although I have heard that it can develop later in life so while shellfish doesn’t stop me breathing I’m gonna cram as much of it as I can into my belly! One of my favourite prawn dishes is created by Reen, a friend […]

Gelish Nails

I ♥ Gelish Nails

First off please excuse my tiny hands and the slightly awkward hand shot, but this is besides the point. This post is to tell you just how much I luv my new find “Gelish” nails. What say you? If you’re one of those people who goes for a manicure and then about 17 seconds after […]

Beluga Lunch

Beluga Sushi – More Please?!

Girls lunch is synonymous with talking, lots of wine and less about food! This theory was proved on the weekend. I met up with some of my girls for a catch up at Beluga as we took advantage of their half price sushi special, if you haven’t yet tried it then what are you waiting […]

Breakfast at Sidewalk

Brekkie at Sidewalk Café

Cape Town is such a great city to live in, why you ask? Visit and you’ll find out! But seriously, you can dine at amazing places, see beautiful views and spend time with friends in radical spots. I met Reen for brekkie this weekend at the Sidewalk Café in Vredehoek. If you haven’t been it […]

LG's Birthday

I ♥ My LG

I luv birthdays. They are incredibly special moments in life and I adore being able to spend time with friends on their birthday. I’m also a fan of having a party to celebrate your birthday. So I was really looking forward to my friend Tash’s 30th. We’ve been friends since varsity and have worked, studied […]

A Wrong Turn

One Wrong Turn …

And all of a sudden you find yourself looking at something beautiful. I was late for lunch at Beluga and left my friend in Woodstock thinking I knew exactly where I needed to go. I took the wrong road and found myself in the middle of the centre of town’s taxi rank. A place where […]
