Cape Town, What's On

What’s on in April

April 3, 2017

Kirsten Beets Art
April is here and we can look forward to 2 long weekends and the last bits of summer entertaining. These are a few highlights but do visit my What’s On page for more events and happenings.

One of the local artists that I admire is Kirsten Beets so I’m excited to see her solo exhibition at Salon 91 which opens this Wednesday eve at 6:30pm. This Thursday is also First Thursdays so town will be buzzing.

For the foodies, there’s Noordhoek Crush, the SA Cheese Festival and the Elgin Cool Wine & Country Food Festival.
Also check out Veld and Sea, fynbos expert Roushanna Gray, will be holding a number of exciting workshops: Mushroom Foraging, Botanical Cocktail workshops and Wild Flavour classes.

Travel & Tell is a new Cape Town foodie experience hosted by top chef, Ollie, and his equally passionate companion, designer/ artist, Julz, who have trotted to magical spots around the globe and wish to immerse you in a themed evening from each destination. This April they’ll host a Spanish Soiree and Mexican Fiesta.

Towards the end of the month, you can look forward to Decorex and if you’re a yoga fan, then sign up for a 2 hour yoga workshop with Instagram sensation, Jessica Olie. 

Happy April!

Anouk Furniture

Anouk Furniture
If you’re a fan of an eclectic look with vintage elements and a dash of boho, then you’ll love Anouk Furniture & Decor. They’re situated near the end of Roeland Street towards parliament, just look out for all the furniture on the pavement. These days everyone loves a good bargain and Anouk stocks a variety of seriously affordable goods. A lot of the pieces still need a bit of TLC or perhaps reupholstering, which keeps the prices down. And if you’re not into DIY then the Anouk team can help you with the restoration.

Every Thursday afternoon, they create a Facebook album with all their latest stock. I look forward to this every week in the hope that I’ll snap up a good deal before anyone else does! Plus it means you can shop from the comforts of your own home. Anouk often has stunning rattan chairs and sofas which are always on my wish list. These are just a few scenes from their shop this week but of course stock changes daily.

I haven’t shared an Instagram Fave in a while and today I’m featuring the fabulous Asiyami Gold. I discovered her feed recently and have been swooning over every detail. Her photos are sure to give you a serious case of wanderlust with their warm colours and textures as well as all the exotic locations. Plus Asiyami is seriously stylish and has her own fashion label which embraces her Nigerian roots and American sensibility, she now lives in Atlanta, Georgia. Hop over and do some armchair travel!
