Fashion Friday Must Have!

Fashion, Food and Shopping. . . Does it get any better than this? Designer label Chanel combined 3 of a ladies most favorite things in their Fall 2014/2015 collection at Paris Fashion Week earlier this year. I cannot believe it took me this long to lay my eyes on their beautiful collection.

The run way became the supermarket as models strutted down the ramp with shopping baskets.

Some of my favorites from the collection include the Milk carton bag (I MUST have this)

Grocery accessories

Chanel Candy Clutch Bag

Beefcakes Boet!

Before reading this please note that the content of this post is rated R18 and is not suitable for younger readers (No lol, not really, just kidding.. well kinda).

"Best buns in town and the Burgers aren't bad either". It took me just over a year to psych myself up and finally visit Beefcakes in Illovo.. and Boy oh Boy was it worth it!!

The Pudding Shop

Nestled away on 7th avenue in Parktown North / Parkhurst is The Pudding Shop. But don't be fooled by the name, as it is NOT a dessert / patisserie store.

The Pudding Shop is on the same property as the La Cucina Di Ciro restaurant. The vibe at the Pudding Shop is very oriental to say the least. It's quite a hippie zen like joint. Picture tranquil / indian music playing in the background with "please switch your phone to silent" signs in the restaurant. It's also very eco-friendly with natural lighting and lots of plants and green creepers on the walls.

The ambiance is perfect for a chilled Sunday afternoon brunch/lunch. The menu is also quite small with mostly vegan/vegetarian dishes and 2-3 dessert items.

I opted for the Indian tasting plate which consisted of samoosas served with a sweet ans sour coconut and chili sauce, chili bites served with a lime, coriander and red onion compote and bhaji squares od cous cous, sweetcorn, spinach and chili. The avo and re…
