Taste of Cape Town 2015: All the highlights!

The Taste of Cape Town weekend is without a doubt one of my favourite weekends of the year. I have been going to this event for the last 7 years. Yes….. I’m getting old and its freaking me out. But the pleasure of attending this event to eat food from some of Cape Town’s best…

Cape Town Festival of Beer

We were lucky enough to go to the Cape Town Festival of Beer on the most beautiful sunny day! This was the first truly large-scale beer festival that either of us had attended, and our excitement (particularly mine) levels were through the roof! We arrived bright and early, just as the festival gates had opened,…

Sussex Open Studios in Woodstock

Sometimes the most wonderful and amazing things will happen in Cape Town and you will never know about it. If I didn’t know someone, who knew someone who knew one of the people behind this I would NEVER have heard about the Sussex Open Studios. Luckily I did and I get the opportunity to enlighten…

Rediscovering Kirstenbosch and the Boomslang

I spent a large chunk of my childhood at Kirstenbosch. My parents used to pack giant picnics, we would meet up with family friends and run around the garden while the adults enjoyed  wine in plastic wine glasses. We would catch tadpoles in the baths and rivers and smuggle them out in the now long…

Meet the Brewer : Lakeside Beerworks

Once a month the fantastic people over at Beerhouse host a special Meet the Brewers event. Lovers of beer are invited to come listen to and discuss the subject of beer and brewing with the people who work hard to make the objects of their adoration. The best part about these events is that they’re…

Meet the Brewer hosted by Beerhouse

If you scroll back to some older posts you will see my spelling and grammar ain’t so hot! But this side of Toomuchloveliness is coming out of the shadows to…

The Neighbour Goods Market

I’m a seriously loyal fan of City Bowl Market whether it be their Saturday Morning Market or Thursday evening market – I absolutely love it. So I must say- I felt a little like a traitor sneaking out to the Neighbour Goods Market in the Old Biscuit Mill on a Saturday Morning. I use to…

Cape Point Vineyards Community Market

The Cape Point Vineyard is located in Noordhoek- which often feels like the end of the world for a lot of us lazy town-dwelling Cape Townians. But you need to trust me that it really is worth the drive. I went to their Thursday Market recently and I left with a big smile on my…

Chapman’s Peak Picnic

I’m a very bad Cape Townian. I have never been for a picnic on Chapman’s Peak. But fortunately I corrected this recently and I’m now a huge fan! It is just so beautiful up there! So the deal is if you’re coming from Hout Bay side you just get a day pass and you don’t…
