^^ End of hike jump!

How was your weekend? We decided to go all military planning on Cape town, thanks to everything closing at 13:00 on a Saturday here, I find it really inconvenient and strange, but we found the cutest little charity bookshop really close to us that sells books at a ridiculous price.  We went for a walk around our neighbourhood that made me wonder why humans have to make everything so ugly.  On Sunday we decided to try and go for a hike on the cloudiest most stormy day, just to get out of this horrible apartment, sometimes walking in nature can turn a bad weekend into a magical one.

Hunting for seashells

Happy Thursday guys! I can’t believe tomorrow is Friday already, where did the week go? Time seems to be flying by and I’m just trying to hold on and get all my stuff done.  The days don’t seem long enough anymore, but Spring seems to be right around the corner the sun is coming up earlier and setting later.  Winter has not stopped me from eating delicious frozen treats, all I’ve wanted to eat lately has been ice cream and milkshakes, but being the insane health freak I am I’ve been coming up with way yummier and so much better for you desserts.  I’m excited to share them with you guys, but that’s for another post.

On the weekends when we are stuck for something to do we usually end up walking to the bottom of our insanely steep hill to the beach.  I’ve been wanting to go get some broken seashells, but we always end up forgetting about it, or the fact that we’ve been avoiding going to the promenade, after seeing a naked man posing for photos, kids blowing up condoms like balloons and a dead seal.  To say we’ve been slightly traumatised would be an understatement, but this last time it was pure bliss.  Everyone seemed so happy playing pokemon go, riding bicycles and having picnics.

^^ Exploring rocks, finding the perfect seashells, we do dating differently from everyone else it seems.

^^ A whole lot of shells.  I felt so bad walking around on these.  I felt like I was destroying the secondhand housing section.

^^ Nature is full of beauty and treasures.

Hello friends! How was your weekend? Can you believe its already August, I can’t believe how fast this year has just flown by.  We celebrated our first wedding anniversary by taking a drive into the countryside of Cape town, we found the sweetest little town to walk around in and feel all giddy, I was really surprised by all the restaurants serving vegan friendly meals, its something you don’t often see in small towns! We are still looking for a perfect print to order, so nothing on the first year wedding anniversary gift front yet, but we will find the perfect print eventually, I hope.
