Havana ... Ooh na-na

Half of my heart has oh’so definitely put Cuba’s carefree capital on my bucketlist! 
Daydreaming about strolling along sun drenched rainbow coloured streets whilst sultry salsa music plays - feeling like you have somehow traveled back in time.
When it comes to Havana there is much more than Rum and Revolutions. Havana’s turbulent past has created the wonderfully chaotic and contradictory Havana of the present, a city that pulsates with life and passion. So yes yes yes ... Cuba is definitely very high up on my ever-expanding bucketlist!!

The other half of my heart however is right here in my BEAUTIFUL country South Africa. 

I am forever adding and revisiting my #LocalBucketlist. 
The Romantic Collective is a Clothing, Lifestyle and Travel - Brand ... it is a brand that is all about the memories that you make whilst wearing the brand ... So when THE ROMANTIC CoLab Season 1 finally travelled from my dreams into reality I couldn’t think of a more perfect destination to make memories in than in our beautiful mother city CAPE TOWN ... whilst shooting our first season we became tourists in our own country and made a point of making every shooting location a memorable tiny little event (I love making events out of everything - jup I am absolutely a little cheesy-corny-eternal-optimist-like-that!) So we wanna invite you to join our journey as over the next couple of weeks we show you some of our favourite Cape Town wander-list-worthy memories!! 
One of my absolute FAVOURITE #PlacesToMakeAMemory is a restaurant called Cape to Cuba in the quirky seaside town of Kalkbaai. 
There is a long list of delectable sundowner cocktails, great tapas, sand to put your toes in, music to cha cha to (hopefully in our #ChaChaJumpsuit) and literally every angle you point your camera in is oh’so instagram worthy.
The Caribbean style atmosphere is electric, and if your lucky enough to meet the beautifully eccentric and wildly passionate owner Deona, she might just let you borrow her electric pink lipstick ... Oh’ and did I mention Cape to Cuba was also nominated as one of the 100 coolest restaurants on the planet  ... need I say more?! #PutItOnYourBucketlist #MakeACapeToCubaMemory
