What’s better than a glass of wine? A culinary experience that is a delight to the tastebuds and a colourful piece of art. Every mouthful. Every drop. When food gets paired with wine it creates a balance between the components of the dish and the characteristics of the wine. It’s a taste sensation that makes […]

Since the euphoria of completing Comrades in 2016 I have developed a love hate relationship with this event. I love how it brings people together and how you are forced to go through physical and psychological change. I hate how it consumes you. There is no easy way to do Comrades and the training required.

I’ve written a number of articles and been involved in numerous discussions about Chenin Blanc and whether or not it might just be the only grape out there that can truly rival the greatness, diversity of styles, ageability and collectabity of Chardonnay. To my surprise, I am yet to be berated by any journalists, wine […]

Little Giant's Hum

Being a big sister is one of my favourite things.  I am guaranteed a lifetime friend. Someone I can share stories with and so much laughter.  Someone who won’t laugh at my jokes, although I think I’m hilarious. Someone who is right next door, when I need a little perfume, some eyeliner, maybe even a […]

I used to make koeksisters but the whole raising thing […]

We started the day off walking some pastures, which I always enjoy. We walked past a 300 year oak tree, the oldest living dated tree on the AT. We knew it was going to be a scorcher with water sources few and far between so we had to make sure we fill up where ever […]

A few weeks ago, Maya and I went to play on the beach and took some pictures. In my mind, I had ONE shot I wanted to take. Anything past that would be great.  We ended up playing for TWO HOURS, and I kept taking shots here and there, which means…a LOT of pictures! 😂 […]

Planning for my second child has been so different compared to my first. I suppose a little experience can go a long way when it comes to knowing what works and what doesn’t. This is why we decided against a full on nursery and opted for a little nursery nook in the space I’m naturally […]
