I love wine, especially red wine in the winter time.
The best merlot I have found is the Organic Swooping Falcon from Woolworths.This Merlot has no added sulfites which mean a far less chance of being headache inducing then other wines.
It is also amazing quality and only around R50. Goes great with pasta, pizza or even just on its own.

Friday was such a gorgeous day that I couldn't spend it indoors, decided to head to the Helderberg Plaas in between Somerset West and Stellenbosch to do a little walking. They have an amazing scenic hiking trail but I am not much of the hiker type so just did a couple kilometers.
They have a little cafe and a place for kids including an area with animals, old tractors and farming equipment.
I had to have a pic on one, this is as farmer as i am ever going to get hehe.

I had a major something sweet craving and headed to In The Vineyard for some Chai tea and Lemon meringue.
Check out there website for the menu etc

So I went to The Gardens Centre for a bit of retail therapy. The Body Shop and La Senza had massive sales on so I am now officially broke.
I also popped into Cassis for some delectable macarons, Yum yum.

Beautiful ladies Sasha Pivovarova and Clemence Poesy poesed with Maison Michel accessories for the A/W lookbook.
I am not sure if I will ever end up rocking the lace mask/ veil trend but the hats are gorgeous.
These ear muffs are just too adorable!

Today is Mandela's 93rd birthday as well as Mandela Day which is a day to celebrate all that he has done for South Africa and even the world. It is about spreading the kindness.
Basically the campaign message is "Mr Mandela gave 67 years of his life fighting for the rights of humanity. All we are asking is that everyone gives 67 minutes of their time, whether it’s supporting your chosen charity or serving your local community."
So lets all set aside some time and offer a hand to those in need of help.
