Hola! my name is Sarita. Welcome to my blog Guapa - Live Beautifully


I'm a Spanish girl, living in beautiful South Africa.

I own a catering business Pla-teo, where I share with my clients authentic Spanish flavours & experiences with dishes that I grew up with.

Although I'm in the culinary industry now, fitness & beauty have been a very important part of my life. I also fell in love with fashion when I got my first job in retail, back in 2006.

Looking to connect my hobbies, I wanted to create a space where I could write my ideas. This is why I felt blogging was the right step, to share all the things I'm passionate about, and most importantly connect with you!

I'm married to my best friend, Sven, my South African favorite human! We share our lives with 3 Great Danes (Maia, Winter & Pablo) & the boss of the house, our cat Esmeralda.

I'm a nature & animal lover, with the aim to live an authentic & fulfilling life, take chances & have no regrets.

I hope to inspire you with my words & that you enjoy reading my blog as much I've enjoyed creating it!

Behind the name - Guapa is the nickname my husband gave me a long time ago. it means beautiful in Spanish.

The goal of my blog is to encourage you to live beautifully!
