Cape Town foodie escapades: Dapper Coffee Co. Review

I’m sure you’ve seen my foodie escapades focused more on nightlife dining, but I like to switch it up.

Cape Town foodie escapades: Gold Restaurant Review

Burn the Floor: A Dance Production Review…with wine!

Be still my pop culture heart!

The first and…

Cycling Rules!

As you’ve probably gleamed from my post about hiking, I really don’t like exercise and I definitely haven’t warmed to the idea of a repeat hiking expedition. So my friend Liezel decided to try a new angle for getting me active, and? It worked! Now, I am not ready to brave the rough and rocky…
