One Marine Drive in Hermanus

One Marine Drive in Hermanus

We love heading out of Cape Town and exploring new towns. Despite Hermanus only being an hour and a half away from Cape Town it is a town I haven’t visited for years. One Marine Drive in Hermanus was the perfect excuse to head back and explore a little further. I am going to do a…

Toomuchloveliness: Weekend away

Staycation at Blackheath Lodge for a Weekend Away

I’m a born and bred Cape Townian who keeps falling in love with my city all over again. I once read this quote about London, Samuel Johnson said, “when a man is tired of London, he is tired of life“. On occasion I feel a little tired of life and it is normally this city…

Spier, Stellenbosch, Winelands

A Night Away with Spier in Stellenbosch

I spend as much time as possible in beautiful Stellenbosch. It is always a highlight to indulge in a night away in the Winelands. We recently enjoyed an night over at Spier where we were treated like royalty. We had a wonderful experience staying with them and below is our experience and a few of…

Eating Everything at Hartenberg

Eating Everything at Hartenberg

Our first trip out to the winelands for 2017 was Hartenberg Wine Estate and they have set a fantastic tone for the year of adventuring to come! Hartenberg is known for their picnics, their shiraz and their beautiful gardens. I have been to a picnic at Hartenberg before and really enjoyed the experience. This time…

Beautiful Places to Drink Wine: Maison Estate

Beautiful Places to Drink Wine: Maison Estate

We found ourselves in the winelands without a plan or destination in mind. This almost never happens- I am such a control freak that normally all our weekends are planned to the T. Instead of getting on our phones and googl’ing, making lists and getting recommendations on twitter, I left it up to chance. And…

Picnic’ing with Grande Provence

Picnic’ing with Grande Provence

I can never resist a good picnic – especially when you’re picnic’ing on a wine farm with a glass of chilled rosé in one hand and a hunk of french stick with a slab of brie in the other. Grande Provence did an amazing job of providing all that and more. We arrived at Grande…

Sleepover in the suburbs with The Vineyard Hotel

We visited The Vineyard hotel for a little escape and joined them for a date night dinner! We had a wonderful dinner at The Square restaurant for their wine and dine experience. The chef created an amazing tasting menu with highlights being the most amazing aubergine dish which wanted to celebrate all aspects of the…

Oranjezicht City Farm Market at The Waterfront

I was always a big fan of the Oranjezicht City Farm Market when it was in its original location. And I used to try visit on a monthly basis. However, when it moved to Helen Zille’s home and then again to the V&A Waterfront I fell out of the habit of going. However, on a weekend…

A night over at The Marly in Camps Bay

I am a Cape Townian born and bred but I actually spend very little time in Camps Bay. Or even any of the beaches at all. Our night over in Camps Bay actually felt like a proper holiday because we got to explore a suburb we almost never visit! We arrived early and watched the clouds…

Stellenbosch Wine Tastings with a Twist

With summer holidays around the corner we are all looking for exciting adventures to fill our days! If I told you how much leave I have over the festive season – you may never talk to me again. BUT because of this I am working super hard to come up with exciting holiday plans! Its…
