When you get a BBM offering you a night at one of the most gorgeous hotels in Johannesburg for Womens Day, you don’t say no.
Lorinda messaged me to say that the Protea Fire and Ice Hotel in Melrose Arch had an offer for me and a friend: A nights stay with breakfast the next morning on Womens Day.
Cue Happy Dance.
Jacqui is one of my longest friends and an absolute earth angel. It’s been too long since we’ve have had a catch up… just the two of us.
We walked into such gorgeous rooms… I love the black and white decor, the photos of the glamourous vintage Movie stars like Marilyn and Audrey.
We were nothing but spoiled. There was a gorgeous photo frame and bouquet of flowers, a note on the bed, chocolates and fruit kebabs.
We had dinner in Melrose Arch and then came back to the hotel for a “Pajama Party.”
There is nothing like ordering room service and snuggling into bed for a girly chat. I don’t know what it is about hotel beds but they are always so comfy. I had such an amazing sleep. We were also laughing at how quickly 2 girls can make a gorgeous room so messy… there were clothes and toiletries everywhere. Oops.
The breakfast buffet was amazing and I felt like a tourist snapping away. I had scrambled egg with onion and tomato and crispy bacon. Crispy bacon makes me happy. Just saying.
I’d really like to thank Lorinda and the Fire and Ice hotel for the incredible service, hospitality and for the extra touches like the photo frame and flowers. You made us both feel very special on Womens Day.

|We had dinner in Melrose Arch… I adore the fairy lit trees. Fairy lights around trees make me happy too.|
|Oh the messiness…|
|We each got a different bouquet of flowers… These are the gorgeous flowers Jacqui got… they are all her favourites.|
