Kalk Bay Harbour

Kalk Bay harbour lies on the East Coast of the Cape Peninsula and lies in the False Bay Gulf. Growing up in Cape Town, Kalk Bay has always been a great post for watching seals, eating out and watching the fishermen come in with the catch of the day. The harbour walks also offer relaxing views of the ocean and a nice break away from the city. Let’s discover more about this small spot in the Cape.

The Cheetah Outreach

A few years ago, I went on a quick drive up to Stellenbosch and we spotted a cheetah sanctuary. We are lucky in South Africa. We get so much amazing opportunities to see wildlife, that most people only get to see on the National Geographic channels. Whether the animals are in their natural habitat or in sanctuaries, we are still lucky to be able to see them in plenty.

  • I have been informed that the Cheetah Outreach has moved to Somerset West, about 20 minutes from Stellenbosch. Please refer to the website (below) for more details)

Cape Town’s 10 Best Beaches

What is a holiday without the beach? I judge a good vacation by the quality of beaches the country has, if they have any of course. Cape Town, has no shortage of the best beaches, and they rank top of my list. Cape Town is a great holiday destination. It’s expensive, but the beaches and relaxed life are totes worth it. Take it from me, I was born here!

Ferryman’s Tavern @ V&A Waterfront

There’s nothing like fish ‘n chips! I personally think Cape Town has the best to offer. Unlike the North, where they offer cod, we have stock fish or otherwise known as hake! Hake is the best.

The Matric Ball

prom
Too long ago

What is a Matric Ball? For those of you living outside of South Africa, it’s the Senior Prom. The final fancy party as we say farewell to out class mates of high school before we go our separate ways.

Girls go giddy, as they watch all the glam events and get the magazines to browse the best dressed lists of all the stars to see what they want their dress to look like. The Matric Ball is essentially the first major fashion event of our lives, even for those not into fashion! ^^ It also served as an escape from the reality of the pending final exams at the end of the year.

At The V&A Waterfront
South Africa isn’t necessarily perceived as a shopping capital or the go to place to get your shop on, but that has not stopped fashion from happening on our shores! Fashion is big here as any other country, and it definitely has elements that make it unique and fun. We also have lots of fashion blogs popping up, making a buzz on what’s happening here and the latest styles seen on our streets and in our shops.
