As promised, here is the artichoke recipe I said I would share with you. | It was sent to me by a friend after I had it at her house, and it is literally the easiest, most delicious dip that is such a fabulous starter (especially for when we can have guests at our homes again one day 😉
In July I was asked to review the FitChef meals and I have been inundated by questions from you all asking how we found it and if I would recommend it! Justin and I were very kindly sent the 21 day couples challenge to try, and here are our thoughts:
Arrival: It is safe to say that the order process and delivery as well as packaging of the FitChef meals impressed me from the minute the delivery man arrived with 4 (rather large) boxes, chilled and sealed. Opening the boxes was one of the most exciting unboxes I have done this year, and I couldn’t stop grinning from ear-to-ear at the thought of not having to meal-plan, prep or cook for Justin and I for at least 21 days! Bliss!
Last Saturday, 7 September 2019, I flew to Johannesburg with butterflies in my belly in anticipation for the Luxuria South Africa Spring in the City event in collaboration with BMW Bavaria and 30 other luxury brands.
Upon arrival at the BMW Bavaria dealership the atmosphere was electric and exciting. Like orderly worker-bees driven by a common purpose, the Luxuria Lifestyle team, as well as multiple brands who partnered on the event, were focused and swift in tranforming a stunning car showroom into what would become the ultimate luxury event!
I am a real BMW fan, so I was absolutley in my element watching these beautiful beasts gliding around the showroom in an attempt to make the best entrance possible for the expected guests. It was a treat seeing the new BMW i8 in action; I intentionally say ‘seeing’ and not hearing because this baby is electric and so very, veryyyy quiet. I feel the lightweight carbon-fibre gull wing doors make her look like she is a bird in flight. She is a real beauty! Maybe one day when I am big… 😉
A birthday cake is such a huge centre of attraction at a birthday party, and I think that must be why it is something that brings me a lot of anxiety before the party. It is a central point around which guests gravitate to celebrate the birthday boy/girl, and something EVERYONE focuses in on… and for those reasons is something I always want it to reflect the theme of the party as best as possible. I had never worked with Nix from Decor & Delights before, but I had seen the cake she had made for my sister’s birthday, and I knew she was someone I was keen to work with and help to grow her business…
When I thought about what to do for food at Jordy’s party the first company that came to mind was the Chilli Chocolate Chefs. I had recently experienced their phenomenal skills at the Exposure Workshop that took place in Durban, and from that moment I just knew that I wanted to have them cater for my events.
