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…

Toomuchloveliness: Makaron at Majeka House

Tasting the Spring Menu at Makaron

I am a long standing fan of both Majeka House and Makaron their incredible restaurant. Majeka House is my number one recommendation for a splurge romantic weekend away. Friends have visited for anniversaries and babymoons and have always been wow’ed! I always suggest going early to fit in a splash in their hot tub and…

Toomuchloveliness Guide to a Weekend in McGregor

I’m a big believer in exploring your own backyard – whether it be a new restaurant in your suburb, long weekends away or a full scale cross country road trip. I hope to inspire more weekends away for my fellow Cape Townians and prove how affordable weekend escaping can be. I have found the Robertson…

Toomuchloveliness: Robertson Slow

Taking it Easy at the Robertson Slow

I have a very dear friend who is the unofficial boss of the Robertson Wine Valley. And when she tells you to come to the Robertson Slow– you pack a bag. And when she sends you an itinerary – you do what she says. I was so delighted to spend a weekend being bossed around…

Toomuchloveliness: Casa Mori

An Artichoke Lunch with Casa Mori

Wonderful friends of ours host an annual artichoke lunch. It’s one of those – if you know, you know kind of things. Their family farm grows artichokes and every year they open up their home, Casa Mori, cook a ton of artichoke dishes and have a party. This is a “mean-ish” blog post because this…

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: Matt Manning

Sunday Lunch Club with Matt Manning

I’ve been eating Matt Manning‘s food for a long time. I knew him back when the only person who thought he was cool was Matt Manning himself. He taught me that you can crisp up gnocchi in a frying pan, that candied beets are a thing and that it is possibly to say petit poussin…

Cape Town Winter Restaurant Specials

MY SUPER HONEST 2018 Cape Town Winter Restaurant Specials

I had a little rant on Instagram the other day. I generally keep below the radar but lately I have been feeling like the restaurant industry is having a laugh. The latest Cape Town Winter Restaurant Specials are hitting the internet and I am finding them… disappointing. I’m not sure what your disposable income situation…

Toomuchloveliness: Weekend in Paternoster

Toomuchloveliness Guide to a Weekend in Paternoster

With busy work schedules and city stress we love nothing more than packing up the car and heading up the West Coast for a weekend away. This year we have discovered Paternoster for the first time during Winter and headed back again this Spring! We so loved spending time in this beautiful town that I…
