No thurst like Bathurst..

During this week we mad a visit to Bathurst (a small ' dorpie' (town) in the Eastern Cape of SA).
My entire family went to look at the curio shops and the a few days later all the kids attended Ox Braai (photo above) which is an overnight music festival.

Bathurst is also home the the largest (man-made) pineapple. (above)

Washi tape, twine, paper bags and stamps :)

This year I made small little presents for everyone that I went to college with and decorated each of their bags individually, using washi tape, bakers twine, paper bags and swing tags.

It was so much fun to get creative after all my exams :D

A cuppa' tea?

Today I had a tea party at my house for 2 friends from college. It was so lovely to just sit and talk rubbish and eat delicious food while the rain trickled down.

My Cape Town Trip 2013

Recently I jet-setted to our Mother City (Cape Town) to visit Becca who is studying at Stellenbosch University.
It was an unforgettable experiance and I loved every minute of it! My most favorite thing we did was visit one of the most extraordinary markets in Stellies and if you dont already know I have a total weakness for markets!

Becca and I at 'Die Oude Bakery'.

Below: A meal I had at a Moroccan restaurant if I am not mistaken and it is called a Manuish.

The most delectable RED VELVET cupcake that I have ever tasted!
