Winter Specials at BOCCA

I have also loved the pizzas at BOCCA but as is the Cape Town way we often don’t visit the same restaurant more than a handful of times. We’re a flippant bunch and we happily flock to the new without going back to visit our favourites. Near the end of last year BOCCA changed hands…

Toomuchloveliness: The Chef's Studio

How to Cook with Matt Manning at The Chef’s Studio

Matt Manning is a dear friend of mine. And I am so unbelievably proud of him and Roxanne Manning for launching their very first restaurant. They are both fiercely passionate souls and are now fighting their way up the steep learning curve of running a restaurant. In true Manning style – they didn’t just launch…

Our Baked Kingklip feast with Cape Fish

Cape Fish recently invited us to cook up an Easter festive feast using their gorgeous kingklip. I popped round to their lovely shop on Saturday morning and was presented with a 1.4kg kingklip fillet!! I was daunted by both the giant size and a fish we don’t normally cook at home! However, I was so…

TML Financial Tracker

The TML Financial Tracker

In my initial #TMLFinancialdiet post I shared all my rules for the upcoming months. Rule number 13 was to track all my expenses in an excel budget. I had been doing this pretty diligently last year and had a great financial tracker which worked for me. I challenged myself to bring my financial tracker back…

#TMLfinancialdiet

The Start of the #TMLFinancialdiet

Right friends, we’re having it. We’re having the #TMLfinancialdiet. What started as instastory musing, on how to be better at saving, has turned into the #TMLfinancialdiet challenge for March and April. I got some good savings advice from asking for help on Instagram but what I got more of was people just like me letting…

The Toomuchloveliness' Summer Bucket List

The Toomuchloveliness’ Summer Bucket List

I’m feeling super festive this year! I think it is because I have been out of the country for the last two festive seasons. And now that I am home in beautiful Cape Town with plenty of free time I am getting over board excited to do ALL THE THINGS!! I thought I’d put together…

Toomuchloveliness: Charango

Charango in Bree Street goes Barbacoa

I last visited Charango a-whole-nother boyfriend ago. And we had a lovely meal but never felt like I needed to go back. So when an invite to Charango popped into my inbox I though… um, that Peruvian place? Sure… could be good. I quickly popped onto their website and found a completely new restaurant! Charango…

Toomuchloveliness: Buitenverwachting

Buitenverwachting Amuse Vintage Pairing Experience

A little while ago I spent the day exploring Constantia with The Entertainer. I have been using The Entertainer for a good five years now and love the app. Favourites on this year’s app include burgers at Hudsons, Sushi at Manga and a shellac pedi from Hey Gorgeous. For our Constantia day I tick off…

Toomuchloveliness: De Vrije

My New Favourite Burger at De Vrije in Stellenbosch

A few weekends ago we were out in Stellenbosch. We were um’ing and ah’ing between wine tasting, grabbing lunch or heading to Majeka House for an afternoon nap. I was voting for nap – but we were hungry! Luckily Jono remembered we hadn’t yet visited De Vrije, Bertus Basson’s new burger spot in the heart of…

Toomuchloveliness: Cosecha

Cosecha: For a Mexican Feast in Franschhoek

Cosecha in Franschhoek is a long time favourite of mine. And sadly a spot we do not have a chance to visit often enough. They serve the most brilliant authentic Mexican food on Noble Hill’s wine farm. My idea of a perfect day out of Cape Town would be a walk through Babylonstoren paired with…
