Buy furniture online with @home

April 29, 2017

Bedroom after
@home is a firm favourite of mine, I find that their quality is better than many other local homeware stores and their pricing is affordable. I regularly shop with them for bedding and kitchenware. As of this week, they have a new offering… all of their furniture will be available to purchase online! 

They offered me a shopping voucher to help spread the word which I happily accepted. After much deliberating, I decided that our guest bedroom was in dire need of help. I chose the Retro pedestal and it instantly uplifted the space, I’m sure you’ll agree?! I also picked their copper Krisna side table which adds a fun and contemporary edge. 

The online shopping process was simple and the delivery took place at exactly the time that they had promised, what a welcome relief. If you’ve ever dealt with couriers before, then you’ll know that their version of timing is not quite the same as yours!

Cape Town, restaurant

One Star House Party arrives in Cape Town

April 28, 2017

One Star House Party CT
Last night I was lucky enough to experience One Star House Party and enjoying a fantastic one of a kind evening. The One Star House Party team is on a world wide mission to create 20 pop up restaurants in 20 countries and in 20 months! Quite a feat if you think about the logistics of setting up a restaurant in a country you don’t know, where you perhaps don’t speak the language and you certainly don’t know any suppliers. Cape Town is the 8th stop on their tour and countries still to come are Iceland, Italy, Germany, Argentina, Mexico, Chile, Japan, UK, USA, Canada, Tasmania and China. 

Their Cape Town pop up runs until the 11th of May and the venue is a Woodstock apartment that they’ve cleverly converted into a relaxed, down to earth dining space with eclectic touches.

The evening consists of 7 courses and each course is brought to you by one of the chefs who run you through the dish and its elements. I loved the open-plan kitchen and seeing the chefs effortlessly whip up all the dishes. The flavours are amazing and there were some unusual twists and combinations, which is to be expected since most of the chefs have worked in some of the world’s best restaurants including Noma and The Ledbury. Once you’ve made your booking you can request a vegetarian option or let them know if you have any food intolerances. I think part of the fun is not knowing what you’re going to be served and being willing to go down a sublime taste journey.

The ticket price is $85 which is around R1100 and you will need to bring your own alcohol or refreshments. There is only one seating per evening so you can expect a laid back, leisurely dining experience.

Local homeware and stationery brand, A Love Supreme, has just launched a new range called Jungle Fever.

These playful prints combine well with their previous collection which means you can easily mix and match.

You can view the full range at their shop which is within the always popular coffee shop, Starlings Locale near Cavendish Square. So pop in for a bite and soak up the tropical vibes!
