Cube Tasting Kitchen

October 19, 2016



Now I’m not a huge fan of molecular gastronomy, I always worry that by the end of the meal which is more than likely going to be made up of a dusting of this and a foam version of that I’m still going to be hungry and slightly confused, but this wasn’t the case at Cube Tasting Kitchen.

The food, every last crumb and deconstructed molecule of it was delicious. What’s even better is that their menu is ever changing and is worked on by all the chefs in the kitchen so it’s a combination of their talents, meaning that it’s compiled and deliberated over for days before the final result is achieved.

Trick or Treat Exhibition

October 19, 2016


Trick or Treat is the latest exhibition up at Wolves Cafe. It started at the beginning of the month and is coming down on the 3rd of November and because it’s a Halloween the very talented Imile Wepener thought it would be cool to have a themed group illustration exhibition, which I’m very excited to say I’m a part of. Mine are the old vintage photos with the faces drawn on them, I had so much fun making them.

So if you pop in you can expect originals and prints from some of the best illustrators around, this show is a real treat so be sure to check it out.

Sanlam Handmade Contemporary Fair 2016

October 14, 2016



Last night I went to the Sanlam Handmade Contemporary Fair 2016 which happens every year on the rooftop of the Hyde Park Shopping Centre. Once again it was packed full of beautiful things to buy and delicious things to eat and buy and eat we did. We had an awesome time, but by the end of it I was finished, I had a bag full of goodies which included TWO boxes of 1701 Nougat (best nougat on the planet) that I couldn’t wait to get home to eat.

The Fair is happening over this weekend and I would definitely say it’s worth going to, especially if you’re one of those people, like me, who like to buy Christmas presents early or you just like buying nice things in general. You’ll find jewellery, clothes, baby accessories, chocolate, shoes, hats, furniture, wooden bowties and the list goes on.

Wear your pride

October 4, 2016


Very recently I was asked by the folks at Kiwi for a story that demonstrates an act of pride in my life to add to their #KiwiWearYourPride campaign. I sat for a while and thought about this concept and what it means to me, I thought about the very thing that I’m the proudest of and how people may relate to it because it comes from the heart and so I decided that my story of pride would be about me becoming a mom. 

I have been on this earth for quite a few years now, how many exactly I’d rather not say 🙂 but when I found out that I was pregnant for the first time, as strange as this may sound I felt really proud of myself, proud that I was going to bring a little human into this world that would be an extension of myself and one of the most amazing people I know, my husband. I felt proud that I was going to be someone’s mom, that I was going to be responsible for shaping and forming a soul that will in their own way and without a doubt make a difference in this world.

Ritual Cafe Linden

October 2, 2016


Shane and I have just recently bought a flat in Linden that we are wanting to rent out and when we were there the other day we thought we’d take a drive down the road and eat at one of the many awesome places that are popping up all over this cool suburb.

We spotted a little eatery on 4th Ave called Ritual Cafe which we hadn’t tried before and so thought we would give it a whirl and I’m so glad we did. The food was really good! Everything we ate from the complimentary bread thins and sweet chili salsa to the wavy potato fries that Shane got with his burger which were all homemade and you could see that a lot of love and consideration had gone into food.

Rebecca Taylor Spring 2017

September 29, 2016


Oh my word Rebecca Taylor’s Spring 2017 collection is so pretty! I always try to imagine what it would be like to walk into a store and be confronted by rails full of clothing just like this. I actually think I would probably lose my mind and start grabbing at stuff in case it all suddenly disappeared or I woke up and realised that I was in fact dreaming.

I love all the frills, prints and long dresses that make up this collection and I wish it could all be mine! Miiiine!
