Tribe 112 – Good coffee

Tribe 112 - Good Coffee

Last week I got to visit the new Tribe on Buitengracht Street and was happy to discover another great addition to the café society scene. You’ll find Tribe 112 situated within Donford BMW Motorrad but don’t let the impressive motorbikes put you off. This is a space for coffee lovers, ardent bikers or merely admirers. Obviously if you’re a biker, this is a plus as you get to admire the bikes and do some shopping.

Tribe 112 offers delicious breakfasts and lunches at affordable prices and of course a variety of coffees. So take advantage of this new inner city spot whether it’s for a relaxed breakfast, business meeting or simply to catch up on a few emails over a coffee or two.

There is much happening this weekend in Cape Town and if you’re a fan of art and design then you need to make a note of these events and get exploring immediately!

PASSION AND THE STILL LIFE EXHIBITION
Acclaimed British artist, Jessica Zoob, will be exhibiting at Southern Guild in partnership with London Connoisseur. In the exhibition Passion and the Still Life, Jessica’s monumental Passion collection is paired with a curated selection of ceramics, sculpture, glass and curiosities by South African designers.
The exhibition runs from 27 February until April.

GUILD DESIGN FAIR
GUILD will introduce highly respected design authorities and work from Africa, USA, the Middle East, Britain and Europe. More than just a fair for beautiful objects, there are also talks and guided tours on offer. The exhibition last year was fantastic, so I’m sure this year will be even better.
The fair runs until Sunday 1 March.

CAPE TOWN ART FAIR
“The Cape Town Art Fair is not only the inaugural event at the Avenue, which is the new venue at the Waterfront, but also this year launches the first campus concept in Africa – the Art Avenue, which extends from the Avenue, through the North Wharf and right up to the Bascule Bridge.  This means visitors have the unique opportunity to see local and international exhibitors and galleries, meet artists, enjoy outdoor public installations, listen to talks by some of the greatest names in the art world, amble alongside the yacht basin in one of the most beautiful settings in the world and all while taking in the finest contemporary art in Africa and beyond.”

This is a must for all art lovers, artists and aficionados!
The Art Fair runs until Sunday 1 March.

THAT ART FAIR
This is a new event on the SA art calender and aims to provide a platform for emerging and established artists who do things slightly differently. Expect art installations, performances, sculpture, photography and more. Find out more on their facebook page.
The event runs until Sunday 1 March.

DESIGN INDABA
The Design Indaba Festival started on the 20th of March and includes a variety of special events. Visit the expo and discover new talent and do a bit of retail therapy! I’m looking forward to hearing Li Edelkoort’s presentation on the upcoming trends for the season ahead.
The festival runs until Sunday 1 March.

Blog Boot Camp 2015 Review

by Lana on February 24, 2015

Blog Boot Camp

This past weekend Kathryn and I held our third Blog Boot Camp and I’m happy to say it was another wonderful event. We had a fantastic group of women and one brave man join us for the morning and even had four bloggers flying down to join us. I always enjoy meeting new bloggers and finding out about their blogging dreams and passions, so this is always the highlight of the day for me.

Essentially the aim of our morning is to inspire our attendees and to offer tips and tools on better blogging as well as social media tips. There’s always so much to cover so perhaps next time we’ll break it up and offer two different courses.

We had delicious snacks and sweet treats thanks to Limonlu Catering and Bullcakes & Cupdogs.

Plus I think we possibly had the best goodie bags ever so a big THANK YOU to all of our sponsors. (See a full list of our sponsors at the bottom of this post)

We’re hoping to hold our next workshop in June so be sure to follow our facebook page to keep updated. We also share blogging and WordPress tips there and are hoping to create a supportive blogging community so please do join us!

Here are some photos to give you an idea of the morning, all taken by the lovely Anthea Kirkman who actually attended our 2014 workshop! Thank you Anthea!
