Lunch Amiamo

Had to get a new charger for my laptop and I’ve not been in the vicinity of unlimited WiFi for a while, so apologies for the mild blogging absence. Decided to treat myself to a day out at the mall. Watched a film at Ster Kinekor called “Seventh Son”. It rates a 3/10 but the casting gets a…

Curly Fries Vs. Pizza

 You know I have a hearty appetite right?  So since I started living in Cape Town I’ve been crazy for Curly Fries and Classic Mojitos. Neighborhood is one of the few places that make them, and make them well. It’s like an explosion of fatty goodness when you go in on a plate. The pictures…

Food, Drinks and Ambiance

 If you’ve never experienced titillating, taste-bud shaking decadence, might I suggest a little indulgence. See, here’s the thing about being a student: You’re working on a student budget, you have no vast knowledge of the premise of Savings account, transportation is a huge issue, and all your money is poised at the ready for cheap…

What constitutes a great day?

 How do you start off your day? And tell me: What constitutes a great day?  For some it’s in the dawning of a new day, warm light bowing in through the windows, and curtains brushing against the air like curtails. For some it’s in the assembling of a good outfit – the armor that let’s…

Long Street shopping: Ball so hard

While searching for an outfit for an event I’m attending come Saturday, I decided to take my new baby out for a test run. Long Street and a good budget presented the perfect time for a whole expedition. I’ve written constantly about Long Street, it’s certifiably one of Cape Town’s best tourist attractions, and boasts…

Rest stop: Grub time

Everyone needs time to recuperate from a bout of shopping, and what better way than to sit down and go H.A.M on some grub at a restaurant. My friends and I decided to go from V&A Waterfront to Canal Walk, searching for the perfect outfits. We got cranky and stopped in at Primi Piati. Selfies…

A Cocofair

I’m always blessed with good timing. When I went to the Woman’s Lifestyle Expo earlier on in the year I got to meet alot of business owners selling quality goods and services. One such company caught my eye – Cocofair. I attended a wine tasting that was teamed with a gourmet chocolate tasting of decadent…

The wonder of Charly’s Bakery

Welcome to Charly’s Bakery They had a whole TV dedicated to these baking angels. They are located in 38 Canterbury Street, Cape Town. They sell sweet stuff so seriously: Do you need more convincing? Their little palace of wonder is a pink and white castle of awesome, with cute murals. They serve cakes, cupcakes, cookies and quiches….

Stepping about in Woodstock

I’m a fan of taking long walks into unfamiliar territory purely for the purpose of sight-seeing and rediscovering a forgotten landscape. So I got on a train, took a 30min+ train ride, and spent the day in another corner of Cape Town …and now you get to see the amateur photography I used to capture…

Gourmet Hipster

You know I’m led everywhere by the ravenous monster that is my tummy. Today I visited The Kitchen. It is on Sir Lowry Road and boasts the title of being a Woodstock institution. The first thing I noticed is that they’re in a kitsch part of Woodstock, smack-dab in the middle of the Art Gallery…

What’s for lunch?

Working in Woodstock, Cape town has its perks. This area is close enough to the CBD to be convenient for the 9 to 5 worker, and far enough for the hipsters and students. Known as the Williamsburg/SoHo of a metropolitan city, it boasts a hectic lunch crowd wherever you are. There are adorable boutique restaurants,…

Resurrecting the Lifestyle

One word pretty much sums up why I’ve had an inconsistency in blogging for the past few weeks: Examinations. Despite being in Postgraduate studies, I am still subject to the quintessential varsity experience of being marked according to what I retain in memory (which isn’t much) and what I understand (which usually fluctuates dramatically). Anyway, I…

Munching on Chicken Chow Mein

Yo!  Been having cravings for Mein for the past 3 months so I got some at my campus’s cafe just now. Working with a student budget can be hard, but sometimes the stomach wants what the stomach wants and who am I to refuse? ….ok, I’m the owner but still. I’m totally a slave to my tummy….
