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: 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…

Blanko Supper Club

Blanko Supper Club with Saxenburg Wines

We were recently invited to the Blanko Supper Club and had such a wonderful evening! I am so excited to share our experience with you- my only upset is that due to the romantic lighting my photos are not great. Please be forgiving of this! We had joined Blanko before for lunch and really loved…

Toomuchloveliness: Lunch Special at La Colombe

Work Lunch Special at La Colombe

La Colombe is an exceptional restaurant, one of the top food experiences in our country and ranked number 73 on the the World 50 Best list. I have joined them for an incredible birthday lunch beforeĀ and as wonderful as this experience was it is a little pricey. What is really exciting is that they offer…

Small Plates with Bistro Sixteen82

Small Plates with Bistro Sixteen82

We are very spoilt in Cape Town having winelands just round the corner! Stellenbosch and Franschhoek are easy trips but Constantia is even closer! The Constantia wine farms make a perfect weekend filler when we are looking for something fun to do that requires zero effort. One of our favourite wine farms to visit is…

Lunching at Blanko in the ‘burbs

We joined Blanko on a perfect sunshine day for a spot of lunch. I thought we’d pop by for a quick visit and head home for a nap. We ended up spending hours at Blanko thanks to their brilliant food and great service. The Alphen Hotel is one of my favourite places in the Southern…

La Colombe: Gourmand Lunch Menu

There is food that is simply perfect. I have a rolling list which includes a perfectly ripe nectarine straight out of the fridge, an avocado in between the rock hard and vrot phase, tuna sashimi and oyster mushrooms. I’m not sure why I find these foods perfect as they are all quite different from one…

The Alphen for the perfect weekend stay

We recently spent the night at The Alphen in Constantia which is only about ten minutes from home. I sadly spent the Saturday morning at work. We then grabbed lunch at Cheyne’s in Houtbay and headed to the hotel via the nursery in Constantia. We were able to have a night away whilst still being…

Toomuchloveliness: Lucky Bao

Lucky BAO: Feasting on Bao in the ‘Burbs

The title of this post is actually a personal in joke with myself. Yes, I truly am that lame – I have been getting away with it for years! Its a joke because every time I type bao in my phone, my phone auto-corrects it to BAO. I think this is because it knows how…

Four & Twenty: A delicious update

I have visted Four & Twenty before and done a full write up. I thought I should do another blog post based on my many many visits in between my first visit and today. On my very first visit I think they had only been open a month or two- by now they have quite…
