Life this week has been amazing and busy – so much so, that I’m really having to make sure I don’t drop the ball on anything and have my time management in order.
Obviously, this is the highlights reel and it’s been pretty spectacular – I’ve visited 5 hotels this week.
I flew to Johannesburg on Monday night.
When I walked out onto the tarmac at Lanseria airport I had to immediately take my jacket off. Oh Johannesburg, you’re so lucky. You’ve gone from Winter straight into Summer heat, but with the Spring aromas. I love the smell of Jasmine in the air.
I was in Johannesburg for an exciting project with Marie Claire magazine.
Here are a few sneak shots from Tuesday…
|Le Chatelat Boutique Hotel|
I got to wear these beauties from Italy – R11 990. The heel and sole’s are taped up with masking tape so that they don’t get scuffed or dirtied.
A quick breakfast of Low GI muesli, fresh banana, strawberries and skim milk before heading back to the airport on Wednesday morning.
I arrived back in Cape Town and went straight to work where this was waiting for me… Oh Cadbury you make me happy. It was International Chocolate Day and I was spoiled. I shared some of it with my work colleagues.
Straight after my radio show I went home, recorded some voice overs, sent them up to Johannesburg and started getting ready for:
The evening raised R243 000 for the rhinos and I am absolutely thrilled. I was quite emotional on the plane reading a newspaper story about the rhino poaching. See the story here. I was sitting in the middle seat between 2 men and as I read the story, I felt tears trickle down my cheeks and had a burning lump in my throat. I didn’t want to be seen crying so I fought hard not to.
We were treated to 8 Plates around the world.
That evening it was the KOI launch at The Ambassador Hotel…
I took this on Thursday morning at the Radisson Park Inn Hotel, where I had a very exciting meeting. Something special is happening on the 17th of October with my radio show. Watch this space. Details coming next week.
Cape Town is FREEZING at the moment. In fact, I’m in bed with a cup of tea as I write this post and I know I need to get up, but I’m procrastinating big time.
What an amazing week and this weekend is just as busy with 3 birthday parties!
I hope you have a wonderful weekend
