My Month: April

This month is a tale of two halves. As you read this Iโ€™m travelling back from 2 weeks in South Africa, (remember when I started planning back in January?) I have so much to share from the trip but for now will whet your appetite with a few Instagram snaps. The first half of the month follows, with my usual and far less interesting exploits ๐Ÿ˜‰

As always, the links in the list go back to posts I have written that correspond to the snaps (if you want to catch up,) and you can follow me throughout the month on Instagram @rebecca_norris on your phone, onlineย or there’s a feed on the right hand side bar here on Florence Finds ๐Ÿ™‚

  • My Travel Outfit for the plane: spots and stripes, layers and flats.
  • Cocktails on the roof of The Grand Daddy Hotel, amongst Airstream caravans
  • A long way from anywhere, at the Cape of Good Hope
  • A rainy day outfit for walking and sightseeing on the Atlantic peninsula.
  • The view from our Camps Bay Hotel
  • African Pengins at Boulders beach
  • Just one selection of amazing seafood we enjoyed.

  1. Ga! I can’t see the South Africa bit! Just googled Grand Daddy hotel though. Quite fancy an Airstream but not sure it feels very South African?! The cocktails I can manage.

    Looks like you had an amazing time anyway. Currently googling safari trousers #wanttolooklikeKateMiddletondid #gaponesareTAPERED.

  2. I also can’t see the South Africa bit! Not sure if it’s because I’m on work computer though (!) but what I’ve already seen on Instagram looks amazing and I can’t wait to read all about it when you get back!

    I love that Whistles dress every time I see it…

  3. Gutted it won’t show the SA photos! The rest looks good though and I am looking forward to a trip review as a safari is on my to do list but quite nervous about it!

  4. What a lovely and very stylish round-up!

    I am so grateful that you came to my book launch – thank you so much for being there, for reviewing the book and for always being so supportive.

    Lots of love Rebecca,

    Annabel xXx
