Tis the season and it is busy! I’m so grateful! For some reason I am far more productive the busier I am. I need to be busy or I become one big lazy procrastinator.
Last week Monday, I was on the Expresso Morning show making my favourite anti-ageing, fat blasting smoothie. I’ve blogged the recipe here and now you can watch how to make it quickly here:
I bumped into Kurt Darren who was performing on the show. It’s always good catching up!
Last Tuesday, it was the Park Inn by Radisson Foreshore’s 3rd Birthday Party and I broadcast live from the party for my radio show on 2Oceansvibe Radio. The party was held on their rooftop (perfect for Sundowners, FYI) and there were crystal trees, colourful balloons and the most delicious food by the new chef Francois.

We had such fun and the cake was an extravaganza of 2m high sparklers sticking out of the 4 tiers of their bright primary colours. Once you cut into the cake, there were the 4 layers of colour too.
Since I’ve been curling my hair so much this week for TV and my events, I thought I’d take a few selfies. Don’t judge me.
I actually got tagged in a funny face selfie tag and I obliged…
On Wednesday night I was the MC for the MINI 5 Door Hatch Launch at the Auto Atlantic Dealership. I have a wonderful relationship with the team here and bought my MINI Clubman from this dealership. They have become good friends and like family! Ahead of the launch, I was given the new MINI to test drive so that when I stood up to MC, I’d really have first hand experience when talking about the car. I must mention that I drove the MINI 3 door, which is exactly the same as the 5 door, other than the obvious 2 doors and extra space.
The technology is unbelievable and I’ve never seen such a sexy dashboard that has so many amazing features all running through bluetooth and the MINI Connect App.
My favourite part of the car is the party trick I call: “Look mom, no hands!”
It parallel parks the car itself without you even having to touch the steering wheel. All you control is the accelerator and brake. It’s awesome!
Thunda is MINI’s mascot. He is an English Bulldog and I swear I only found this out after I had bought my MINI Clubman – how crazy? Duke and Thunda could be cousins they look so similar.
The only sad thing is that Thunda went missing… They put out Lost Dog Posters and a reward of the new MINI iPad.
The good news is he was found hiding in one of the new MINI 5 door hatches on the night. Naughty pup.
Seriously though… Thunda makes me miss my Duke so much. Duke, however, is living the life with my mom and dad! I need to find a word that is stronger than “spoilt.”
The party was fantastic with Rekorderlig Ciders quenching our thirst…
and my very own handsome DJ Sox keeping us dancing…
or was it Thunda on the decks?

There was also a really clever guy doing Rubix Cube art. I mean…
It was such a great night! Thanks everyone!
In other news, Cape Town has been a complete tease with the weather. I can’t keep up. One minute it’s a gorgeous Summer day and the next it’s cold and rainy. The one thing I am loving is the sun setting so much later these days.
On Thursday evening, Sox and I headed off to Clifton 1st Beach around 6pm to watch the sunset at about 7:30pm. It was just beautiful and I want to be doing this as much as possible. It’s an awesome way to end a day!
The highlight of my week was definitely the FaceTime chat I had with my BFF, Karolina and my cutie pie Godson, Gabriel. I can’t wait to smoosh both of them real soon.
Oh and complete side note… This happened to me the other night. Sox and I were watching TV and we couldn’t find the remote to change channels. I eventually stood up from the couch to discover I had been sitting on it. I didn’t feel a thing! I mean really… every button – even the little + and – sign. Awkward!
