Paradise at Sea Pearl Villa

They are busy with renovations at our apartment complex and the drilling is enough to drive anyone insane. I was hoping to go sit at my mother-in-law’s place to get away from it but she was getting ready to go to St Helena Bay. She suggested me and the little one go along for a 2 day break. After checking with daddy if I could take his little one away for 2 days, me and Cristiano were packing for the West Coast! 

My mother-in-law’s sister and her husband owns a holiday home in Brittania Bay, St Helena Bay, on the beautiful South African West Coast. Sea Pearl Villa was going to be our home for 2 days where there was nothing but peace, quiet and views for days. Situated a few meters from the beach, all you heard was the waves crashing and endless stretches of ocean. It was 2 days of bliss!

If you are looking for a place to relax and unwind, you have to visit Sea Pearl Villa. Below are some pictures to convince you that this is where your next holiday should be.

So what you waiting for?! Book your holiday! I promise you won’t regret it. Besides, you deserve a break! 😉

First Date Night Post Baby

At the beginning of July hubby put his foot down and decided that we were doing date night. Grandma was happy to babysit the little one. The question was, where do we go? Now having a baby ain’t cheap and with mommy constantly buying things for baby, I always look for a bargain on anything else. In this case my Entertainer app came in handy. We decided on Eden on the Bay because it’s close to home. We had dinner at The Ocean Sizzler restaurant. 

It was so good talking to my husband and having adult conversation over a glass of wine and good food. We had the Flagstone Poetry Merlot. Hubby chose a nice piece of steak (medium rare) and I had to have the prawns! The food was really good and we got 2 for 1 special with the Entertainer app. That makes me a very happy mommy!

The sky was stunning during sunset with beautiful hues of pink and blue. We truly live in a beautiful country!

Maternity Shoot!

As my due date was fast approaching, I almost forgot to do my maternity shoot. It was in the back of my mind but with all the baby stuff and still working from home I kept pushing it back. I was 38 weeks which is a bit late as I’ve read that most people do theirs around 30 weeks. Nonetheless, I finally got them done by my good friend from university days, Nicole. I was in awe at how amazing they came out! Big thank you to Nicole for these great pictures and a relaxed environment for this perfectionist. 😊

Ps. Pictures taken at Milnerton beach, Cape Town, South Africa on Freedom Day, 27 April 2017.

Impromptu trip to Camps Bay

Not too long ago my sister-in-law surprised us with a very quick visit. After dropping her at the airport, while driving on the N2, we decided to take it to the beach. Unsure of which beach to go to, we randomly chose Camps Bay. We haven’t been there in a long time!

When we got there the beach was nice and empty (a first for us). We had views for days! Everything was so peaceful and quiet.

The ocean air got hubby hungry quickly and as we were walking down the strip, friendly staff at Mynt Café invited us for breakfast. Now this is my kind of service!  My pregnancy craving is sweet stuff and all I wanted was a pancake, waffle or flapjacks! I ordered the Protein Pancakes which consisted of 4 whey powder pancakes layered with blue berries, banana, mixed nuts and honey. It was divine, just what me and baby more wanted than needed. Hubby got himself an Eggs Benedict. I was too late to take a picture. Pappa bear was hungry. I loved the interior and we received great service. Definitely worth the visit!

After breakfast we took a leisurely stroll back to the car and home. It was just what the soul needed.
