 Hello Lovely People!  This month we bring you Jingles & Joy.

Although my choice would be to hook up the hammock and chill with a book, for those with ants in their- (or their children's) pants, there are so many places to go, to shop, to eat, to visit, things to do, to taste, ... the list is endless and we are so very spoilt for choice. Recommendations: Check out the cattitude at the Stanford Big Cat Sanctuary. Visit the coolest bookshop in the Overberg, Liberty Books (Off the N2 'Mall' Grabouw) is a knockout of brilliantly priced quality books and value for money! Go drink some new crisp Cider or Craft Beer. Go taste wine and do wine pairings. Spoil yourself in Cape Town. Go for a hike in nature and feel your vigour pumping!

South Africa ~ December 2016 / January 2017

Firstly two very special gifts to you.

1.  My family's favourite Christmas dessert recipe! It should last a large family from Christmas through to new year but I end up making a second one for New Year's every time! Sumptuous Christmas Ice Cream Bomb Recipe.

2. Exclusive for Nosy Rosy subscribers: A two night giveaway at the magical O on Kloof Boutique Hotel & Spa in Cape Town !! #WIN a two night stay for two in one of the suites with its own private balcony and Jacuzzi. Full breakfast included.

Our Cover Girl ~ Patrycja Oosthuizen 
Patrycja was born in Poland and is now living a dream life in Cape Town. She is a very effective social Media Freak, and mother to many great things happening. To mention a few: She is the Founder & Editor of Travel Opulent Box - an online magazine focused on opulent travel, #TravelChatSA - the hottest twitter chat about South Africa in South Africa. She loves people, travels, food, nature and photography. Her two mottoes are: "Everyone is a friend, until they prove otherwise." & " Live with no regrets and love with no excuses!"

See what Patrycja and her company can do for your small (perhaps almost invisible within all the noise on the internet) business! 

A world of good wishes from Creation Wines: "Hearty greetings and the finest of festive wishes from our beautiful world on the Hemel-en-Aarde Ridge to yours, wherever you are. May your celebrations sparkle with joy and wonder, friendship and love. And may 2017 dawn with bright opportunities, bringing daybreaks dazzling with promise and sunsets beaming with the contentment of a day well spent. May every night light up with a multitude of stars, lifting your spirit, revitalising your soul and making you glad that you are part of this most amazing universe!" Please click here to see the Sunset Menu Times and gift options at Creation Wines.

ART Matters!
If you are in the mood for ambiance with attitude - look at the art of Gert Naudé. A contemporary artist, who allows us to experience his life's journey through his unique style of brushing on & scratching down be it, wood canvas or glass.

Our Restaurant recommendations of the month:

The Forage restaurant at Wildekrans is still doing their genius indigenous dining thing while also doing the fabulous new Racione at the tasting room

Considering the name of the Panorama Restaurant at Bellavista Country place, you should not be surprised to find 180 degree breathtaking views over Walker bay. But you will be! It is as if everything comes together to be expansive and inducing deep breathing. The view, the food, the wine, the ambience and the almost laid-back perfection everything is done with (.... só Afri-Swiss™ : )

Please visit our Caring Community & Doing Random Acts of Kindness page where you can pick your favourite charity or choose a random one to donate a couple of rands to.  Giving is good for the soul.

Our Favourite Wines which we suggest you stock up on this month are the same as last month for a very good reason!

  Creation Wines.
When Creation Wines was established in 2002, it meant a brand-new beginning for Jean-Claude and Carolyn Martin who decided to exchange the winelands of Switzerland for those of South Africa. It also meant the planting of vines in virgin land where there had only been sheep pastures before, and building a cellar and tasting facilities from scratch. Perhaps it’s not surprising that innovation has since been the order of the day on this beautiful estate. Read more 

  Seven Springs International recognition for wines produced on your doorstep! Seven Springs Vineyard produces just five wines and already celebrates Gold and Bronze Decanter World Wine Awards, Silver and Bronze International Wine Challenge Awards as well as two 4 Star Platter ratings. 7springs.co.za  Read more about the delightful 7 Springs vineyard. 

Sumaridge Estate Wines In the beautiful Upper Hemel ~ en ~ Aarde valley lies Sumaridge Estate Wines. Family owned, and best known for its world class Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, it also produces other single varietals and premium blends of equal quality. The tasting room opens every day, between 11am and 5pm, and is family and disabled friendly; encouraging you to linger longer at this little piece of heaven on earth. Click here to visit the Sumaridge Estate Wines website.

Wildekrans Boutique Wine Estate is an international award-winning vineyard overlooking Walker Bay, set within a picturesque 1000-hectare estate tucked away in the beautiful Bot River Valley. Apart from award-winning wines available for tasting on the Wildekrans farm, the Estate offers 8 luxury self-catering cottages, perfectly designed for the ultimate experience in relaxation. The Wildekrans winemaking philosophy is one that starts from the premise that great wines begin in the vineyard. The winemaking process, similarly, adheres to principles of low intervention with a focus on capturing and retaining the essence of the vine and terrior. Website

Find Tapas between The Burgundy Restaurant in Harbour road and the newly paved parking area at Lemm's Corner.  Crazy specials at Happy hour every day between 5 & 6pm !
