It's not often that I get to go to something that is just for us girls (Always my kids, luggage, snacks and the cat in tow). I literally jumped for joy when I saw all the ads for the Women's Lifestyle Expo (even told hubby it was Ladies Only! A little white lie never killed anyone). I decided to go first thing Friday morning, having spent the entire week being sick with 2 sick kids and hubby out of town (at the least the cat was in good health) , so I don't miss anything (always one to be "voor op die wa").

The food at these types of expo are usually generic (Just good enough to fill your tummy), but I was pleasantly surprised at what was on offer. I found exhibitors were passionate, knowledgeable, enthusiastic masters of their respective crafts (it also helped that it tasted really good)
Leaine only uses quality ingredients for her heavenly treats. I expected her wares to taste like cardboard, even though they looked divine, so I bought take away. I expected to only taste the treats but ended up finishing the red velvet before you can say sugar free.
|www.sweetlikecandi.com - Sugar free, gluten free and even diabetic friendly (Can I get a Whoop, Whoop)|
Yummy organic cocoa, chocolaty goodness. Heinrich is so passionate about his products that you want to buy one of everything (and you have this divine display giving you a come hither stare)
|www.cocoafair.com - Takes the word "slab" to a whole new level|
Lyn's Luscious cakes
|firstname.lastname@example.org - Too pretty to eat|
A terrific trio of colourful, flavourful eats that cater for all palates
|Vagabond Kitchen - Mouthwatering presentation ( I highly recommend the Moroccan Style chickpea and roast butternut on the left)|
|Vagabond - Flat bread with Sun dried tomato pesto, topped with cherry tomatoes, chives, feta, avo, rocket and thyme infused balsamic glaze (what a mouthful)|
So this is the guy I lost my virginity to at the expo (talk about extra perks)
|Hot Oyster Boys (What? They offer Tabasco)|
Oyster virginity people (What were you thinking? I'm a married woman! Love you hun)
Before - Apprehensive, scared, qweezy
During - Interesting. Not bad.
