Foraging for Food and Getting it Cooked at the Table Bay Hotel!

Foraging for Food and Getting it Cooked at the Table Bay Hotel!

I had the most amazing opportunity given to me by Woman & Home Magazine SA and Sun International recently that I just have to tell you about it. Two friends and I went on a foraging adventure and afterwards we had our meal cooked by the Table Bay Hotel’s executive chef Jocelyn Meyers-Adams! Our adventure started in ideal Cape Town autumn weather for a short hike. We arrived at the Table Bay Hotel at 9.30 am and were already taken…

Review: Goji Spa and Organic Hair Colour Systems

Review: Goji Spa and Organic Hair Colour Systems

Recently I was very fortunate to be invited to visit the Goji Spa at the Willowbridge mall in Tygervalley. Since I was unable to make the appointment, my niece’s friend Maunel went instead. She is a 23 year old college student who lives in the Northern Suburbs, close to the spa. She arrived late!

Not being a huge fan…

Seriously! I love working out and running and doing all sorts of things during spring and summer and even autumn, but…

My Two Oceans Half Marathon Mistake #OMTOM2014 #capeblogpost

My Two Oceans Half Marathon Mistake #OMTOM2014 #capeblogpost

My third Two Oceans Half Marathon turned out to be my worst so far! Even though I felt better prepared physically at the start than the previous times. It all started with a slight groin injury a few weeks previously, but that ultimately wasn’t the main cause of my bad race. I arrived at the start with lots of time to spare. So went for a toilet break. And then picked my spot amongst the many thousands of runners, soaking…
