A Bit of Peru in the Mother City : Charango Barbacoa

6th December 2018

Recently I was invited to sample the newly opened Charango Barbacoa menu and, being that their specialty is steak and I am a non-red meat eater, I was intrigued. I often judge a restaurant based on how they cater to vegetarians, vegans and flexitarians like myself (mostly veggie, sometimes chicken and fish). And well, Charango did not disappoint.

Making Memories at Orchard Stay

17th September 2018

So you remember when we went feasting at Waverley Hills? Well, as if their hospitality weren’t enough, we were kindly offered a place to stay for the night – travelling with a little one is not easy (if you guys have tips for a newbie mama, please dish them here!), but we weren’t expecting to be blown away by their recommended accommodation, Orchard Stay; just a nice, comfortable place to lay our heads for the night before driving back to Cape Town the next day.

DIY Painted Baby Playmat

I have been dying to do this project ever since I was still pregnant and readying the nursery (I still need to do a reveal of our little girl’s room!). After struggling for an age to find a foam playmat that wasn’t entirely hideous, I sought an alternative method to paint one myself. But then I got sick and the project just ended up on the enormous pile of discarded things to do. So since I am finally well enough and since Gia is really starting to become mobile, I decided now was a good time to get cracking on my DIY Playmat at last!
