Cape Town foodie escapades: Kyoto Garden Sushi Review

Forgive my plebeian dining palate, but I’m rather an unadventurous foodie. However, when given the opportunity to dine somewhere new in Cape Town, I was quick to accept – because my 2017 goal is to stop exclusively frequenting my regular haunts. So, into high-end sushi joint Kyoto Garden Sushi I went…and out of character, I dined. The…

Cape Town foodie escapades: Dalliance Restaurant Review

So I get a lovely invite in my mailbox, welcoming me to come dine in the newly revamped urban eatery Dalliance Restaurant & Bar – located within the ‘gold mile’ of Victoria & Alfred Waterfront, in Cape Town.

Profile: Soul Design in mind

Amid my late night research on up-and-coming fashion brands in South Africa, I came across ‘Soul Design’. Here I am thinking “Alright, another cool jewelry brand based in Cape Town”, but there is so  much more to it apparently. So #KlaasInSession with Abi James – the heart and soul of Soul Design – who took…

Honestly? I’m here for the chocolate

Mediterranean patio decor with a little rural Grecian rustic element – Hello ‘Honest Chocolate Cafe’! My body is pretty much the visual representation of how much I overindulge my decadent taste. I found Honest Chocolate cafe whilst taking a young walk down Wale street with my Simon&Mary hat protecting me from the sun, and needing…
