Today is my birthday and I am so excited that I get to share some of my birthday feels with my fans and followers – yay. To celebrate another trip around the sun, I would love to spoil one very special person and take them along with me to celebrate my birthday at the beautiful Arbour Cafe and Courtyard in the Wrenrose Centre in Birdhaven.

Arbour Cafe is one of my favourite local brunch and lunch spots, their beautiful garden and fresh, tasty menu items make entertaining a breeze.

This enchanting, leaf-dappled alcove, is a French-inspired café and crêperie rich with flavour, diversity and authenticity. The menu boasts delicious treats such as their renowned traditional French galettes and crepes, omelettes and homemade sandwiches and salads.

Freshly squeezed juices, cocktails and even bubbles are on the refreshment menu and after an afternoon surrounded by the beauty and tranquillity of their courtyard. you may never want to leave.

I am so excited to be able to share my birthday spoil with one lucky person, so if you want to come and celebrate with me (and maybe pick my brain while you are at it) then this is for you.

To stand a chance to win, make sure to comment below and let me know where Arbour Cafe is located, and why I should choose you!

Competition closes 23 January 2020 and the winner will be contacted via email.

Hi Heather,

Arbour Cafe and Courtyard is located at the Wrenrose Centre in Birdhaven.

You already know why everyone wants to meet you so I’ll spare you that angle of conversation and tell you why you might want to meet me instead 😉

I have an extremely friendly, bubbly personality wrapped up in wit and non-stop humour (wow that sounds vain, let’s add this next part) or so I’ve been told. I love a good conversation and I think we would have a lot to talk about, my interests are extremely diverse so you could take your pick of discussion points and I’m sure that no matter where your conversation leads I’ll be able to keep up and keep it flowing and interesting. Everyone loves a bit more depth than small talk, right?

I’ve recently qualified as a teacher so I have a huge passion for education and children and then also a more broad interest in trying to ‘normalise’ and destigmatise disabilities in our society (pretty sure you’d be interested in hearing what my plans are in this regard).

Ok I feel like this has now been more than enough self promotion, I’m not a fan of this angle of talk so I’ll end it here.

Happy Birthday!
See you soon, maybe 🙂

It’s in Wrenrose Centre Birdhaven and yes I’m actually entering this competition!! I deserve to win because we can never get it together enough to have lunch together unless it’s at a work event, and I STILL remember that time we had coffee and muffins at M & B in Sandton and you practically fell asleep!!!! We are long overdue for a catchup and I can’t think of a better place to do it!!! 🙂

I’d love to spend time with you to celebrate your birthday as you are a warm and kind hearted person. Always enjoy seeing your smile and I’m sure it glows even more in person.

Unfortunately I would also need a ticket from Bangkok to join you so I don’t think I’ll win. But I hope you have a great time with whoever you pick.

Have a wonderful birthday,
