#Mauritius - Doing The Expat Thing

By Candles & Wine – by Karolien – There’s Life After Kids

Friday a week ago saw us gathered at the stunning Durbanville Hills Wine Farm with Debbie Jackson from Balance – Cape Town with some good friends, awesome ambience and wine by candle light.

We were spoilt from the word go with some bubbly sparling wine and a beautifully set up corner just for our enjoyment for the morning. Hugs and kisses were exchanged as we greeted some familiar faces and a few introductions were made for the new ones. It wasn’t long though before everyone was comfortably settled with a glass in hand and Debbie treated us to a most interesting and very entertaining talk about her unique range of beautiful candles.


Candles with such whimsical names as  Karoo, Suikerbossie, The Fig Tree and more. As we sat listening we could smell the distinct nuances of the burning candles she’s displayed and kept burning throughout the morning. These candles are a must have for each woman as on its own it manages to set the tone by spreading its gorgeous flavors throughout the room.

Debbie and Balance – Cape Town is NOT just about Candles. Debbie has an amazing skincare range that also warrants looking into. Her skincare range is infused with pomegranate, marula, ginger and other 100% organic oils creating all natural products for your skin. Healing of the skin, easing of fine lines and a wonderful anti-ageing range.

We had an amazing morning learning more about these products and what Debbie does and I for one will be purchasing her skincare to use in future.

What was supposed to be an hour and a half informative wine tasting and product launch quickly turned into so much fun that we only manage to leave hours later! None the worse for wear after tasting quite a few of Durbanville Hill’s finest wines! Definitely an experience to repeat soonest!
