ARRIVAL & FIRST IMPRESSIONS: Our arrival at Lloyds Inn was a little underwhelming to say the least – we had just traveled from Uluwatu through to Seminyak and although we had spent time in Seminyak before and were well equipped for it’s buzz, our last villa was close to the craziness, but not quite as IN IT as Lloyds. We literally found ourselves turning down a main market road and into a back alley towards what was said to be our accomodation. For the first time in our Bali trip Justin looked homesick, just like he normally gets when he is feeling anxious and uncertain of a place or situation.
We were invited to spend a weekend away in Jozini checking out a private luxury villa called Tandweni. Tiger fishing and sunset bush drives left us feeling very grateful for this SA life we live… here’s a review of our stay, covering some of the questions you guys asked – including; where on earth is Jozini?! There is also a discount code for you at the end of the post 😉
Is there anything better than a quick escape to the Cape? Short answer: No. No there is not! Shopping at the V&A, eating loads of delicious food and beaching it on Camps Bay are the makings of a perfect little getaway in my mind!
Cape Town in synonymous with great food & coffee… and let’s not forget wine! If you are a foodie then here is a short list of places you need to try, whether it be for brekkie, lunch, drinks or dinner. Enjoy!
ARRIVAL & FIRST IMPRESSIONS: COMO Uma Ubud was the first resort we stayed in upon our arrival in Bali, and there could not have been a warmer welcome for us… or a more magical one! Words escape me as I try put into thoughts my many wondrous feelings. I will try and explain our experience as best as I possibly can, but know that I most likely will not do it justice — it was just unreal. Pure, inexplicable perfection!
One of the requests I get most frequently is for a tour around our home, so finally here it is. Starting with our downstairs living area. We sorted our home out for AirBnb so I took the opportunity to snap some pics while it was at it’s least cluttered 😉
When I was first approached and asked if I wanted to be part of a community chosen to trial Bowel Balance and feedback on my experience my first instinct was to shy away from the opportunity. Speaking about toilet habits is something we just don’t do… not publicly anyway!
You don’t need to even have arrived at the Renaissance Bali Uluwatu Resort & Spa, to feel it’s brilliance. As you approach the resort the sheer size and stature positioned on the edge of a cliff in Bukit, you may find it difficult to not feel your breath taken away for a few, magnificent moments. The roof shape resembles that of a leatherback turtle, which was the inspiration behind the architecture in honour of the beautiful creatures who are known to nest along the stretch of the Bukit peninsula.
You won’t believe how many moms I have heard say they don’t want more than two kids because they “don’t want to drive a bus” and “7 seater cars are SO much more expensive“! Well, may I introduce you to the all new, Peugeot 5008 7 Seater SUV; a revolution for the mom-mobile market!
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!
