A couple of weeks ago, we were invited to Towers Restaurant at the Cape Town Marriott Hotel Crystal Towers in Century City to experience their Date Night Special which happens every Wednesday night from 6pm. As I was unable to attend, my fellow foodie blogger Teresa from Cupcakes and Couscous (and her husband) went as a representative of Date Nights. And here’s what she has to say about their Date Night 🙂
For your date night meal this month, we have an easy chicken stroganoff brought to you by Yolandi from A Zesty Life. Date Night meals do need to be fancy or complicated in order to impress. It’s really just about the two of you making an extra effort to make a meal and sit down together as you enjoy it. And I hope you do just that!… [Read More]
Men are always saying they don’t understand women. They say we’re complicated, and they have no idea what we’re thinking. Well, I’m going to let you in on a little secret. Yes, we can be complicated, but we can also be really easy to please if you just know what it is we want from you. … [Read More]

Do you have any rituals in your relationship? I’m not talking about satanic rituals or killing sheep or anything like that although if that’s your vibe then that’s cool and I’m not judging. I’m talking about doing something together in an intentional and conscious way in order to help you deal with something or work through something? I wouldn’t say we have rituals in our relationship but we have done a ‘ritual’ twice. The first time to help us deal with something that was going on in our lives and the second being just the other night for a similar reason. … [Read More]
Oh my! It’s nearly August! When on earth did that happen!? While August is meant to really be our month of winter here in Cape Town, it also happens to be a very busy month with lots of things happening and all of them looking appealing for a date night out.

For this week’s date night meal, thanks to the lovely ladies from An Ode To Food, we’re having Tacos For Two. I love that this recipe is easy, yet impressive and can be adjusted according to what your dietary requirements are. There’s also something fun about tacos that is kind of hard to explain but that makes for a perfect date night meal. Enjoy!… [Read More]
A few weekends ago, we had a lovely time together where we spent half the long weekend just the two of us! It started off with our overnight stay at The Twelve Apostles which was just so divine!

I met a woman the other day. I thought I had met her before but I couldn’t remember where. We got chatting about this and that. She asked how I was, I told her. I asked how she was, she told me. We said goodbye and went our separate ways. … [Read More]

Although cold, we’re still hoping and holding on for more rain to descend on us in the next few months so bring it on winter!

A couple of weekends ago we were treated to an Overnight Dinner and Movie Package at The Twelve Apostles Hotel…and what a treat it was! Our plan was to get there at 2pm for check in to enjoy every minute we could but unfortunately due to the life of parents, we only managed to get there after 4. My first tip to you, if you can get there earlier, do it! Trust me, you want to enjoy and savour all the time you can here. … [Read More]
