It’s all about the sleeve at the moment… ruffled, poofed, flared, embellished, fluffy and the list can go on and on. This trend seems to be taking the fashion world by storm ~ runway by runway and I’m totally on board. I found this fabulous jersey at Zara and thought it was so out there, a definite statement piece but really cool and different at the same time (the sleeves are super soft) so I took a snap in the changing room and sent it to the sisters (as one does) and without hesitation they both said they loved it too. Its a great trend that can be dressed up for a night out on the town or dressed down for comfort. With my busy boys keeping me on my toes I’m all for comfort. I’m very happy to now have to find some space in my wardrobe for this beauty!

So in keeping with the Meat Free Monday theme we’re bringing you another homemade meat free recipe that you could give a try at home that is quick and easy. We thought a soup would be a nice addition for this chilly weather. This recipe is from the website Café Johnsonia by Lindsey Johnson, it is delicious and super easy.

There is nothing better than finding a market that has tasty food, good music and a great location. Luckily in Cape Town we are spoilt for choice when it comes to markets, so I thought I would highlight a few in and around the Cape that I love.

The Oranjezicht City Farm Market is no new kid on the block and has been around for quite some time, this however was my first time and I cannot believe I didn’t go sooner. Located in Granger Bay, V&A Waterfront next to The Lookout event venue, it’s the ideal setting for this market as it overlooks the bay, is in walking distance from public transport and has loads of parking. What’s also really fantastic about this market is that it gives local farmers and artisanal food producers a platform to sell and showcase their produce. #localislekker

There’s nothing better than going on a little getaway with some of your favourite people 🙂 and if you can find a place that’s exquisitely beautiful then you are winning on all levels. Our choice for our latest getaway was a ‘West Coast Road Trip’ to the gorgeous seaside/lagoon town called, Langebaan. It’s situated about 1 hour 20 minutes from Cape Town along the R27 or West Coast Road as its more aptly known which really is a stunning drive. Even though we’ve been having the worst drought in years, the hills were still green and the ocean was still blue and if you head up the route during spring time then the rolling hills are usually covered in beautiful flowers which makes for an even better drive. Langebaan is jam packed with things to do like sailing, kite-surfing, kayaking and waterskiing, golfing, horseriding, fishing, cycling and so much more so it’s really great for people with kids and without kids. With it being Winter, we thought that we were going to have miserable weather all weekend but it seems that the sun Gods were shining down on us and everyday was warm and sunny which was just delightful.

New Zealand is totally sensational to look at… It really is. Feels like you’re staring at a photshopped image but yet can’t quite capture its authenticity in a picture (not for lack of trying, mind you)… I apologise up front for writing too much but sometimes the cup runeth over with the need to over-share 🙂 I have split this blog post up into 2 parts so I don’t leave you with too much to read over lunch…

First stop, Auckland.

I get so excited when I find new things to try and my latest obsession is Chinese tea 🙂 and the more I’ve been researching it, the more I love the whole thing. Chinese tea culture is rooted deep in tradition, family, respect and daily life which I find so wonderful. I found a really amazing brand called ~ Jasmine Tea Mill ~ at my local Chinese supermarket (so I was convinced it must be good ~ haha) and to be honest with you I didn’t even know where to start because there are just so many variations to choose from!

I absolutely love winter. Snuggling fire side with the family is bliss, but I think what I love most is the winter wardrobe, chunky jerseys, boots, beanies and coats. Ten to one if you see me out and about in winter I will have a coat on, it’s my winter wardrobe staple if you say.

I recently added to the collection this beautiful trench from Studio W at Woolworths, which comes in 4 amazing colours. It is so comfy and light, and the burgundy colour just pops.

Stay warm this winter
