Get your dose of African flavour over at GOLD

A recent visit to a restaurant that’s actually been around for a while reinforced my belief that sometimes you really just have to get out there and explore this city in true tourist style…

GOLD is a restaurant that specialises in what they refer to as “opulent African cuisine”.  They’re a massive hit amongst visitors […]

A few photos from this weekend’s Cape Town Carnival

So this past weekend we had all the excitement of the Cape Town Carnival which this year had an Elemental theme.

The Green Point fan walk was jam-packed with spectators who all got into the festive spirit in a big way.  Being part of that crowd made me feel like such a proud Capetonian and […]

Delicious pasta goodness over at the Pasta Café in Green Point

When it comes to a good comfort meal, a tasty bowl of pasta really does hit the spot, doesn’t it?

There is however a big different between regular ol’ pre-made pasta and fresh, homemade pasta that’s been prepared from scratch.  But with crazy schedules, who’s got time for that?

Well luckily that’s where the Pasta Café […]

With it’s awesome retro 50s/60s/70s style, don’t expect any of that standard spa stuff here… No muted tones, no ocean of beige, no dreaded panpipe music CD… Nope, that’s all been replaced by beautiful bright colours, […]

    All about my sexy hair makeover thanks to Spoilt Hair & Nails

All about my sexy hair makeover thanks to Spoilt Hair & Nails

Now when it comes to my hair, I’ve been suuuuper boring the last few years.  I’m basically a hairdresser’s nightmare…. I go in, ask for the most basic trim possible, and I run out the door.  I don’t even stick around for a blow-dry or anything…

A big day out with Nokia Tens

So I headed to Hamilton’s Rugby Club yesterday for the Nokia Cape Town Tens with no real expectations…  Yes, I had heard that’s it’s always a lot of fun, but not having been before myself, my only real goal was to at least smash a tasty boerie roll:

BUT what I can now confidently say […]
