This year there was no getting away from it. Brooklyn’s mind was made up on the party she wanted… and she wanted FROZEN. Believe me when I say I tried to convince her otherwise (Yes I knowww it’s herrrr party and she must have what she wants…) but I am not a big fan of throwing ‘commercial’ parties so for me Frozen was not high on my list of themes that excited me…Continue reading “Brooklyn’s Winter Wonderland 5th party”
I was invited to attend the launch of the new Nicci Boutique store to open at Gateway Theatre of Shopping. It was a lovely event where guests were invited to try O Roast Lab “Rose Iced Coffee” (delish), have our hair styled with the ultimate hair tools by GLAMPALM and mosey around the store, connecting with fellow content creators.Continue reading “Nicci Boutique | Launch”

Early May we were lucky enough to head to the Cape for a few days, and even luckier still to spend time at the highly rated 12 Apostles Hotel located in Camps Bay. The hotel is positioned such that it feels it is the only place between the majestic Twelve Apostles and Table Mountain, with a view of the Atlantic that makes your heart flutter.Continue reading “The 12 Apostles | Review”

Early March I joined a group of girls to the bush for a 3 night stay in Bela Bela.
After the speed in which Jan & Feb passed us, as well as coming out of the second wave of Covid in SA, it was such a welcome vacay!

Ever since we heard about the Cavern Resort & Spa in 2018 and paid it a visit, we have been enamoured with the place and it is an honour to share this special gem with you all. The Cavern, founded by Bill Carte in 1941, is still a family run business, and with that creates what I believe to be the heart of the resort. It is, in my opinion, far more special than a business-run resort with “one in one out” mentality. Megan & Hilton Bedingham run The Cavern with love & heart, and that can be felt throughout the resort. The family eats nightly in the same dining hall as guests, and with a weekly ‘snacks in the bar’, genuinely seem to care for making connections with their guests. See discount code at end of this post 🙂
