Happy March err’body! With a new month comes a new bucket list! I’m considering a name change for these monthly posts, my dad said the words “bucket list” are a bit morbid so if you guys have any suggestions, throw them at me! For now I will just stick to the bucket list!
Spend the day at Clifton beach. I think the last time I did that I was nine. And I think it’s about time I get my non-existant tan on!
Go to The Grand for cocktails. I have never been there but always hear people raving about it so it’s time.
Try out the restaurant Yindees. A South African blogger I follow, Leigh from Pretty Mint, recently Instagrammed a picture of this restaurant and basically you sit on massive pillows on the floor to eat your dinner – I’m pretty much obsessed already.
Go to my family’s holiday home in Hermanus for the long weekend that’s coming up later this month. After a lot of university work I know that soaking up some salty air, relaxing by the sea and eating some delicious food is just what I will need to unwind.
Looking Back At February:
Last month’s bucket list was such fun. Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to tick everything off but the things I did were unforgettable and really make me excited for the upcoming month’s list.
My mom, sister, family friend and I went to The Bungalow in Cape Town for a snazzy lunch a few weeks ago. The location is perfection – it sits between the mountains and the ocean and is simply beautiful. I was not impressed with the food there – the meals are extremely expensive and don’t taste as good as they should considering the price. I will, however, go back there for the view, the cocktails and the dessert – the desserts are worth it!
Another item I ticked off my bucket list last month was watching an outdoor movie at The V&A Waterfront Galileo Open Air Cinema. We watched ‘Castaway’ while wrapped in blankets, eating red velvet cupcakes and with the view of the Waterfront behind us. I would suggest dressing as if you are visiting Antarctica and bring a lot of blankets – we made the mistake of summer dressing, it was an experience.
You all should start planning your own monthly list to make sure that your experience new memories.
