A Few Of My Favourite Things

The Great British Bake Off

You know how people discuss food porn, well for me, this show is my porn. Like for reals. I get all sweaty and turned on when I watch it. I love baking; it's one of those therapeutic things for me. I don't get nearly enough time to bake as I don't like to rush it either. But watching this show makes me want to get out my Nigella books and go to town. It's one of those great reality shows where it's not too cheesy and the judges are not going out of their way to be mean and critical. Also it's focused on the baking. There's not much on the contestants but that's okay. Their personalities come out through the challenges. And trust me they are hectic. But at the end of the day, you get to see some beautiful baking.


This is a South African band. And sadly that's the extent of what I know about them. I will learn more particularly as I really like their music. I've been streaming it on the daily. If you haven't heard of them, make sure you give Good Morning Sunshine a play. I've done that a gazillion times and it's still a great song. 


Although it pains me to say it and to actually type this. I joined up for 4 weeks with some buddies. We're just going 3 times a week but it's a lot more than I was doing previously. Normally I'd chill on one of those reclined exercise bike with a Kindle and catch up on some books. Now I'm sweating and swearing whenever I need to do anything with dumbbells. I haven't noticed a big difference in weight loss and centimetres but I don't think I'm carrying as much water weight. Also my appetite has increased tenfold. So that sorta explains why I'm not a skinny bitch yet. At the same time though I'm have the most awesome sleeps. So if anything, yay for that!

I was lucky enough to attend the official summer opening of the bar. It was a miserable day. But even the rain and clouds couldn't hide what an amazing venue it was. We may have been huddled under the heaters but even without sunshine, it's a great place to hang out. If you're looking for the perfect summer bar with breathtaking views of the Mother City, then this is your place. They also have great specials on food. If you want to book a table, send a mail soon to to get your name on the guestlist. 

Ex-Oh! Ex-Oh!

  1. I saw Shortstraw perform at the Marie Claire Trunk Show and they are every bit as good as what you expect. Hope they venture down to our shores soon.
