Ok guys, you asked for it – so here is the Cape Town haul blog post.
First, let’s agree that there will be no judging on this blog post. I enjoyed my holiday and I may have spent a bit of money, but I did save up leading up to the holiday. I won’t be mentioning prices of the things, because guaranteed I will add everything up at the end of this and will probably have a minor stroke. If there is a specific product you would like more info or the price of, leave a comment below. I will be more than happy to provide you with any information (except a total of everything purchased – haha!). Also, I will be showing you photos of the things and will have the names of the products below the photo, no descriptions because that would probably end up in one dang long blog post.
I did buy a few gifts for family members and friends (which I have not included in this post).
Let’s jump right in then! I’ll start with the main reason I went to Cape Town…LUSH.

I wasn’t sure whether you guys would want to see what food & wine items we bought to bring home, but I’ll include it anyway.
Because Neal and I are obsessed with coffee, we bought these 3 bags. We also stopped at the Nespresso in V&A Waterfront and bought 4 sleeves (Caramelito, Vanilio, Ciocattino and a new limited edition one called Kazaar) but I forgot to take a photo of those – whoops.
Limu Coffee Beans | Uganda Bugisu Coffee Beans | Bugisu Coffee Beans
I am not fond of chocolates. But I like this Espresso Artisan Chocolate from the Spice Route (they are quite small slabs, so 2 of the Espresso ones are for me and the rest belong to Neal).
Venezuela Rio Caribe Artisan Dark Chocolates (2) | Uganda Artisan Dark Chocolates (2) | Espresso Artisan Dark Chocolates (4)
Then because I love salad, I had to buy a few oils and flavoured vinegars from Tap & Cork in Franschoek (these are 100ml bottles).
Garlic Oil | Truffle Oil | Tomato Vinegar | Granadilla Vinegar | Cranberry Vinegar
Some delicious food items.

Organic Dried White Mulberries | Organic Chia Meal (because I am obsessed with anything Chia related) | Organic Chia Seeds (again, because I am obsessed with anything Chia related)

Neal and I are not huge wine drinkers but we do like the odd glass every now and again.

We also did a wine & chocolate tasting at Lourensford (which was one of the best I’ve experienced) and decided to get the following.
Honey Liqueur (this one is mine, all mine) | Lourensford 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon | Lourensford Dark Cigar Plum Chocolate (best pairing EVER!)
Would you guys like to see a few holiday photos we took?
