Restaurant reviews

I will happily visit and review your restaurant ideally in the greater Cape Town area and surrounds. I am available weekday evenings and weekends, and will bring my husband with me. Please note a review on my blog will only be guaranteed if the meal and experience is exceptional – I do not publish negative reviews.

This blog is my happy space, and I only share things I love. If I do share the review on my blog, I will disclose that I was invited to enjoy the meal as a guest, and did not pay for it. If you would like me to review a restaurant, please ensure there are vegetarian options available on the menu, or that the chef is happy and able to accommodate my dietary requirements. Click here to view some of the reviews I have published.


I am mostly interested in events that focus on food, fashion, wine or hotels. If I do attend, a blog post will be at my own discretion, depending on how interesting and informative I believe it will be for my readers. If I am invited to an event, please ensure I am able to bring my husband with me.


I do have limited advertising space available – if you are interested, please email me – Please note, all proposals will be accepted or rejected at my discretion, and only ads aligning to my blog content and direction will be considered.

Hotel reviews

We will happily visit and review your hotel, guesthouse or similar. All accommodation reviews , visits and arrangements need to be for two people, as I will bring my husband with me. Please note a review on blog will only be guaranteed if the experience is exceptional. If we do share the review on our blog, we will disclose that we were invited to enjoy our stay as guests. You can view a past accommodation and travel reviews here.

Product reviews

Assuming the product is aligned with my blog content and direction, I will be more than happy to test it and share my thoughts. A blog post is not guaranteed, and if I do blog about it I will disclose where I received the product from, and that it was a gift.


Editing photographs, linking to relevant menus and websites, and creating truthful and interesting pieces is a time-consuming process. I need to be proud of the content I place on my blog, and like to think the final pieces are worth the wait. If you are looking for a piece to appear with in 24 hours, using stock images and a copy and paste media release, I’m not the writer for you.
