You cannot visit London and not make your way to Paris. It doesn’t work like that and is completely un-natural. Paris is literally 2hrs away by train and even shorter by flight. During my Euro tour, these two cities were a must and literally the two main destinations.

I’ve always thought of visiting Paris in the winter time. Pictures and aesthetics wise, it just made sense in my head. Also the foodie that I am, I was eager and very excited to visit the cuisine capital. Paris is the capital of France. Just like London, it is a major European city and a global center for art, fashion,  and culture. Known for its major landmark like the Eiffel Tower and the 12th-century Gothic Notre-Dame cathedral, the city is known for its cafe culture and designer boutiques along the Rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré.

Back At It. 🥂🍷🍾#winetasting

It’s been close to two years since I visited a vineyard and had a wine tasting session. Today, all the memories came rushing back from the mini adventures that I ventured in South Africa through my wine tasting escapades. Oh Stellenbosch how I miss you.

For those who’ve been with me from back in the day, I am sure you know what am talking about. If you haven’t, please do yourself a favour and go check out my archives and you’ll get all the way caught up.

I got a chance to visit Nashoba Valley Winery in Bolton Massachusetts with a group of special folks. Two of my co-workers who I adore to death and Esther who I met for the first time but had a lot of mutual friends. Esther if you’re reading this, I am still baffled why our so called “friends” never introduced us because the connection was too real.

This is my first official wine tasting experience in America and I must say, “What the hell have I been doing with my life?” Quick note to all my wine lovers. It doesn’t matter what location, city or country. The culture of wine tasting is literally all the same. As soon as we arrived, I felt right at home. Not to be extra and all dramatic but I did feel like the prodigal son that had finally returned home.

For just $15, we got to taste and sample 10 different wines out of at least 20 options based on one’s preference. Well technically, you get 10 tokens and you can use them to sample wine, beer or brandy. Of course I used all of mine to try the wines.  Compared to Rands (SA currency🇿🇦), this is some bull pricing but for the average Americans, this is absolutely affordable. The atmosphere and the energy was absolutely amazing. From the open greenery fields to the actual vineyards, the views were absolutely stunning and very relaxing as well.

Towards the end, we bought a couple bottle of wines. Some to take home and the rest to sip while we ate and enjoyed the day and the views.  What better way to soak it all in with some good vibes, friends and amazing outlooks.

The weather was perfect as well which added to the aesthetics of the property that contributed to a dope Instagram pic. As I am getting older, the clubbing scene/night life is kinda getting too outdated for me and I am finding myself leaning towards these kind of vibes and hobbies.

I absolutely recommend for everyone to check out Nashoba Valley Winery. It’s perfect for a date, mini day get away for couples, friends and even with family. Stay tuned because there’s definitely gonna be more post on my wine adventures.

Afro Flava😋👅💦

As I sit down and reflect from the last time I wrote to ya’ll, a lot has quite happened. I mean from dating to finding a job, there’s been quite a personal growth.  I recently just got a job as a server at a pretty descent restaurant. Others would call it a classy, high-end but yet affordable.  Having worked in the restaurant business before, this was one thing I’ve always shied away from. Getting the three/four dollars an hour is not a conversation one looks forward to hearing especially when you’re in desperate need of fast cash. Now that I am in the industry and knowing what servers go through, it all makes sense. (Future blog post)

Anyways, so ya’ll remember my Instagram food page that I started a few weeks ago? (@Afro_flava) well let’s just say it’s been great so far. What started out as a platform for showcasing my love for food, quickly overturned to a possible business venture.

Not going to lie but all this happened so fast, it still feels like a dream. They say it happens when you least expect it. It all started when one of my good friends had asked me to make her a meal prep (this was when I was struggling to find a job). She offered to buy the main ingredients and pay me $50.00.

At first it seemed like a side hustle but mostly just helping out a friend. Besides I cook all the time on social media so it really didn’t seem much to me. After her reaction of the master piece that I prepared for her, I decided to kinda venture and look for more folks who will be willing to pay for a meal prep.​

We’re living in a time where fitness is a trend and all that comes with it (food, fashion, beauty) has become a day to day lifestyle. I believe this is an un-tapped market area so why not be smart and take a risk in this possible business.​

​I never imagined I will be my own boss, yet again we also never thought Trump would be president. Thus far I’ve gotten a couple of clients here and there but haven’t really gotten a loyal clientele yet. As crazy as it sounds, I feel like maybe this could be the start of something big.

I officially want to introduce you to Afro Flava. A food and beverage company that is dedicated to exploring the art of food and different ways to exciting ones taste buds by catering meal preps.

Mama Africa🌍

Mama Africa🌍

There’s nothing like the real taste of the mother land unless you’ve visited “The Africa Cafè”.


Last night I Got to go out for dinner to a local cafe located in the heart of Cape Town. Just like the name, they only serve African delicacies ranging not only from South Africa but from other African countries around the continent.


As soon you walk through the door, you can’t help but fall in love with the African print wall pattern and the chandelier made exclusively of beads and bottles. From the dress code of the staff to the painting of their faces, your completely merged into the African vibes exuding from the energy of the restaurant. 


Honestly this is a one stop destination that everybody needs to visit if you ever travel to Cape Town, SA. It’s an all buffet style which I love but with a different menu every season.

Your served an appetizer and 3 main courses (take a minute to let it sink in) including desert and an option of tea at the end.  Whatever dish you end up liking you have the option to get as many rounds as you want. Remember it’s a buffet.



I normally eat African food on the regular but this definitely took it to a whole different level. From the decor of the restaurant to the serving of the meals, everything was exceptionally well presented. Also the fruit cocktails served are completely to die for especially the fact that the bar tender is very generouse, if you know what I mean.😜

Apart from the face painting offered as you feast on your meal,the waiters and waitresses entertain you with traditional South African tunes that you can’t help but get into it.


It was a truly great experience which I must say, I will have to visit again during my time here. Make sure to Check it out if you can. You wount be disappointed. 

Taste Buds 🇿🇦😝☕️

One thing about South Africa is the pride they take in their rich food culture. Being the foodie that I am, this is literally heaven for me. I thought I was going to lose weight but weightloss is seeming to be more of a future goal than a present moment.

With everything relatively close distance to each other. One cannot miss a coffee shop or some type of local restaurant in whichever direction or street you walk to. Apart from the famous Mcdonalds found on main st,  They barely have corporation based chain restaurants which I think is great because it promotes and encourages local small businesses. 

This morning while walking to get registered for classes, I came across a cafe by the name “TasteBud” which is a food pantry and Eatery. 

 It’s literally a classy, preppy cafe that mostly exudes brunch and coffee vibes☕️. Meaning, all the good stuff that you can think of that falls into the brunch food category. They also happen to serve a lunch buffet with a different menu everyday. ​


Also the staff is very friendly and welcoming which to me has been the best  customer service so far since I have been here. Like most cafes, they have an outside patio where one can enjoy their meal in the beautiful weather. 

 I am definitely looking forward to more Stellenbosch foodie adventures which I will keep you guys posted.
