Sitting by a warm fireplace on a gloomy winters evening realizing I have totally not kept myself accountable to creating a vlog on how I quit my 9 – 5 job. I’m going to be real honest with you guys, the whole editing thing has not been something I have had time to learn yet, and sitting here 4 days no electricity at my parents place feeling gratitude I have the opportunity to come home when things are tough reminded me of when I was indeed in a very tough place.
Not only do these juicy pops make my smoothie bowls look lit as, but they remind me of being little and my super picky ways. I would eat nothing but cut up apples and dry paste (oh how times have changed), let alone a fruit that resembled more of a dangerous plant than a late night treat. I just remember being so terrified of this fruit, and now I await the local fruit stall owner to let me know when to buy them fresh out natures kitchen.
As a typical Capetonian I have been to the V&A Waterfront to do all my Christmas shopping for the past decade, but made little effort to get to know what the place had to offer on those weekends I couldn’t find something to do.
This past Sunday I was invited to the GINJA Restaurant, for a fine dining picnic while we watched Watershed play live, and all I could think to myself was ‘Candice why has it taken you this bloody long to come here’? On arrival we were seated at a quaint table, where a stunning picnic bundle was unraveled before our hungry eyes to reveal an assortment of mini foods and treats. From bagels to the perfect chardonnay, this foodie was happy and not going anywhere soon!
We set the table up to be Instagram appropriate (obviously), snapped away at our scrumptious picnic ahead until our hungry stomachs got the better of us. With some of my favorite songs playing in the background to the taste of salmon in my mouth, I truly couldn’t have spent this past Sunday in a better spot.
