My Global Party recap

The Global Party started back in 2011 with the mission to unify partygoers around the world, all in support of a host of great causes.

With their 2011 kick off party, they managed to throw parties spanning 80+ countries over a 24 hour period.  Pretty impressive, no?  Well not as impressive as the 120+ countries they […]

Lots of fun with the Veuve Clicquot Masters Polo

This year’s Veuve Clicquot Masters Polo event at the beautiful Val de Vie estate just outside Paarl certainly did not disappoint. (But I knew it wouldn’t!)  No expense was spared to put on a day of ultimate luxury, high fashion and regte egte French bubbly overindulgence… there’s nothing fancier than a real champagne hangover, just […]

A great day at the races with the L’Ormarins Queen’s Plate 2013

I mentioned last week that the L’Ormarins Queen’s Plate is one of a few events that I really do look forward to every year.

Well I’m happy to report that this year certainly did not disappoint.  My feet are still sore (my one baby toe in fact will never be the same again) and it took quite […]

Last Wed eve I got totally spoilt with some haute couture cocktails & canapes at the Belvedere Vodka End of Year celebration which took place at the new extention of The Orphanage.

But before we get into the nitty gritty of what went down, let me first share some interesting titbits about this premium vodka brand, I mean you never know, it might […]

Circus fun at the Marie Claire Loeries After party

So last Sat eve I was lucky enough to attend the much anticipated Marie Claire Loeries after party – one of the highlights on the Creative Week calendar –  and I can guarantee you one helluva jol.  I really had no idea that advertising folks were such crazy party animals.  There was just no way I was […]

A night to remember with great views, tasty food & excellent company

Fri evening was one of those nights where you just have to go “Wait wait, I get to do what!?” 😉  The evening was spent at the incredibly beautiful The Last Word Long Beach in Kommetjie for a 5 star dinner hosted by Bar One Manhunt winner Lushwill Rossouw.  Remember the man who kicked my butt about 2 weeks […]

There’s a new Vida e on the block

On the 1st of June I popped into the opening of a new Vida e caffé in Green Point.  It’s situated in Prestwich St,  right next door to Beluga and a block or so away from Trinity night club.  Due to this pretty clever positioning, I’m predicting that it’s going to be quite a busy one.  […]

Sir Robert Stanford wines & Madre’s Kitchen

The last stop on our Overberg exploration weekend was Madre’s Kitchen in Stanford.  Madre’s is situated on the Sir Robert Stanford wine estate, so of course it made sense that before we got stuck into lunch, we first did a Sir Robert Stanford wine tasting.  Oh yeah…

The tasting room was honestly one of the […]

Grootbos Forest Lodge

After a bit of an afternoon snooze (to let the wine, cheese & cured meats from our lunch with Lomond & Farm 215 settle) we headed over to the Forest Lodge for dinner.  The Forest lodge is one the amazing 5 star lodges which can be found on the Grootbos Private Nature Reserve.  The […]

Cave exploring @ De Kelders

After our forest walk on Sat, we headed over to De Kelders to check out some caves.

Now the original plan was actually to do some shark cage diving (with Gansbaai of course being the hot spot for it).  But sadly the weather didn’t play along and the waves were too high to take us […]
