I was just in Cape Town for a week with my boyfriend Vic, and we went to this market called the Old Biscuit Mill. The market offers opportunities for South African food makers and stall owners to come out on a Saturday and sell their goods to the public. It’s a tiny area that is crammed full of everything nice. The food stalls offer the most amazing things like design your own sandwiches with the best ingredients, to home brewed beer and mushroom and truffle oil sticks, to amazing treats like macaroons and mini lemon meringues. Everything you look at is amazing! We started out with an amazing sandwich, went over to try some smoked and roasted olives, mushroom sticks, home brewed beer, lemonade, and ended with some peanut butter macaroons. What i liked about it the most is that most of the things for sale, you can’t find anywhere else. Everything was so original and different and delicious! And there is such a nice vibe there with music and crowds and hay bales to sit on. If i lived in Cape Town, this is definitely where you would find me and Vic every Saturday morning for breakfast.

This weekend it was a great friend of mine Garreth's beautiful daughters 2nd Birthday Party, which he themed a princess party! It was so much fun and she is just such an adorable little girl, who was so willing to interact and play with everyone all day without getting tired or grumpy once! And Garreth had planned it all so well! There was princess plates and cups and party hats and a beautiful cake made by Garreth's very talented mother Shelley. Garreth and Paige-Amanda are just such a cute pair and you can just see how much they love each other every time they catch each other’s eye. Altogether it was such a great day and we all had so much fun with such great people. I thought id share just a few of my favourite photos from the day. Also, it is my 21st birthday in 5 days so that will be a big blog topic after Saturday as i am having a Gossip Girl/Upper East Side New York themed part which is going to be great! Enjoy! xxx
