On Friday I had the great pleasure of attending a vegan brunch preview at Cafe Velvet, one of the trendy hotspots in the Saint Catherine area.

Last night we decided to treat ourselves and have dinner out. It’s actually been a while since we did this, mainly because of the Game of Thrones addiction, but now we’re up-to-date, it’s time to venture out of the apartment in search for food!
