"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.

[Design Indaba 2014] People want cities for people

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)

Top tips for time management in 2014

Time management is something that I often associate with that little red monkey-monster from the Chicken Licken ad. It creeps up on you from behind, and before you know it sits on your shoulder and demands your attention...

GTBC 2013: How to get paid for going on hot air balloon rides

A year on from GTBC 2012 I am honest when I say that I have still not started a blog, but hey, you know life. I know what you're thinking... "Excuses, excuses..." And that is exactly what it is. Hi, I'm Ilse and I am a procrastinator. *Crowd gives a clap*

Three things I didn't know about cheese

This past weekend I attended the SA Cheese Festival held at Sandringham Estate just outside of Stellenbosch. Having missed out on it last year, I was quite excited to stuff my face with cheese once again. Oh glory.

Where the real Movie Magic happens

One thing that will always bring back fond memories for me are the days when we still had old school drive-in cinemas. I never understood why these were kind of phased out... There literally is no better way to see a movie than under the stars.

City sightseeing in a sidecar

It's that time of year again my fellow Capetonians, the sun is out (and up till late), the wind is blowing in full force... Yes, that's when you know it's summer time in the Mother City. City Sightseeing Cape Town has opened its night tours for the season, and if you aren't that keen on exploring the city per se, you'll be happy to hear the company has launched something more adventurous specifically for people like you - City Sightseeing Sidecar Adventures to Cape Point and Cape of Good Hope.

Being a travel blogger in 2012

This past weekend I was fortunate enough to attend the second Getaway Travel Blog Conference at the Upper Eastside Hotel in Woodstock, Cape Town. Man, oh man, was I pleasantly surprised by this travel blogging community. From start to finish the whole ambiance of the conference built up such an excitement in me, perhaps because I didn't know what to expect.

Divine wining and dining at Steenberg

So, what is happening at Steenberg this winter you might wonder? Well, after spending a day at this breathtaking destination I can confidently tell you that it's something you don't want to miss out on. Even though I think that Steenberg would be amazing at any time of the year, there just seems to be something extra special about visiting the wine estate in the winter. If you ask me, it's because winter goes with food, wine and luxury - like fish and chips go with Coke.
