I love to eat and travel, I think we all do, and like most people, I feel much happier after reading another person’s recommendation before spending my hard earned pennies.
Lady Leopard is my place in the digital realm where I document the many watering holes and restaurants that me and my other half are fortunate enough to stumble across on our travels.
My husband grew up in South Africa and one of our first holidays together was to a small town called Franschhoek set amongst the lush wine lands just a short ride from Cape Town. It was there that we found our mutual appreciation for all things food and wine. This was also where I really learnt about the sophistication of food preparation and how to pair the perfect glass of wine with your chosen meal.
Before you decide to follow, here’s a few of my favourite things to give you a taster of the adventure ahead:
Leopard print (I’ve always been known for it and I’m rarely seen without it) rooftop views, sunsets, Southern Right Pinotage, pretty stationary, overpriced eyebrow pencils, Franschhoek vineyards, escaping London on short breaks, our family dog Maisie, country pursuits, the beauty of saying “thank you”, catching up with my gal pals of 20 years, channeling my inner Jennifer Lopez, fresh linen, my wonderful family, getting into a good box-set, pink lipstick, recommending “off the beaten track” restaurants to friends and followers, reading the weekend supplements and finding new travel bloggers to follow, and last but definitely not least, taking lovely pictures of food and wine and then having the pleasure of consuming it all!
