Durbanville Hills' tasting delights
Durbanville Hills' tasting delights

Passports and padkos ready, off we went to the land beyond the Boerewors Curtain... Just kidding, Durbanville isn't really that far, plus, I'm not one of those Capetonians... You know, those who think everything further than 15 minutes' drive is 'too far'.

City-living at Mandela Rhodes Place Hotel & Spa
City-living at Mandela Rhodes Place Hotel & Spa

Mandela Rhodes Place, part of the Three Cities hotel group, is situated opposite the St George's Cathedral in the buzzing heart of the Mother City. Not the average 'hotel feel', Mandela Rhodes Place was born out of the restoration and integration of four historic buildings around a contemporary tower block.

Van Ryn's: A rich golden treasure

Pairings have been a hot trend for a while now. My most recent experience was, however, quite unique - a brandy and food pairing at Van Ryn's distillery in Stellies.

How I was converted to a steak-lover

I am sure the majority of you reading this have been to HQ more than once. I, however, experienced this much talked about steakhouse for the first time recently, and the experience has turned me into a steak-lover. True story.

Because life's better with bubbles
Because life's better with bubbles

I've never seen myself as the typical champagne-drinking girl that loves all things glitter and gold, but something happens to you when you walk through the doors of J.C. Le Roux.

Experiencing Africa's greenest hotel

A mere 400m from the airport I potentially found the solution to make those early flights just a little bit better... Hotel Verde, dubbed "Africa's Greenest Hotel" - and rightly so.

Matthew Mole, a microphone, and a majestic church

What do you get when you put Matthew Mole behind a microphone in a majestic church building with insane acoustics, backed up by members of the Cape Philharmonic Orchestra? Goosebumps. You get goosebumps.

Make your way to Empire Café
Make your way to Empire Café

Chances are, if you're a local, or are familiar with Muizenberg (to a further extent than knowing about the fantastic family beach, colourful wooden houses, surfers, and effective shark alarm), you'll know the legendary Empire Café in York Road.

Bay Harbour Market: For every type and taste bud
Bay Harbour Market: For every type and taste bud

As tempting as sleeping in on a rainy Saturday morning may be, don't let this Mother City and her weather moods make you miss out on a weekend at Bay Harbour Market which, I believe, is one of the best markets Cape Town has to offer.

Apart from Net Prophet 2014 being a huge success; it was probably my most inspiring day this year so far. Top lessons I took home were from Quirk's Rob Stokes and Over's Aaron Marshall.

"Plants, coffee and everything else..."
"Plants, coffee and everything else..."

Second Avenue in Harfield Villiage, Kenilworth is surprisingly quiet and peaceful at 9 in the morning. With its lively exterior of colourful flower pots on the steps, Twigs with Beans - a quaint little coffee shop/nursery/vintage furniture shop - is quite inviting.

Cities around the world all have one particular thing in common - they are made up of people. The problem is though that most cities have not been built to accommodate people - but to accommodate cars and traffic. (video)

Saluting the Steadfast Tin Soldier

Starting off with a moment of respect for the late former president of South Africa, the opening night of the Tin Soldier by Cape Town City Ballet was bound to be a wonderful experience. And that it was.

The exciting thing about the digital world is that it's ever-evolving... You never know who is going to come up with what next, and it's quite scary to look back and see how much innovation has taken place over the past decade. All I'm still waiting for is a self-driving car... (video)
