Life Lately

This is my final week of work and to be completely honest, I have felt useless. I just don’t have anything more to give and need this Christmas break. Today is my final show for the year on 2Oceansvibe Radio. What an incredible year it has been. We close the station from tomorrow, but we will be playing music and the best of shows from the year, so if you still want to tune in, you’re not going to have dead air 😉

Today I have the ridiculously talented Jesse Clegg on the show from 12pm, so tune in here:

Thank you so much to all of you who have listened to my shows this year – it means the world!! I’m excited for a massive 2015 with lots of exciting content!

In other news, 2Oceansvibe had their Christmas Party last Friday at Cafe Caprice. I left before it got too messy, (also because I had voice overs to do) but we donned our hats, pulled Christmas crackers and read out the most pathetic jokes ever and toasted to the year that was. I loved it!

Work-wise, even though I’ve been feeling tired and my brain is already on holiday, I’ve still been loving everything I’m doing. I went into studio last Friday evening to record voice overs in Seattle, USA. It was 6:30pm our time and 8:30am their time.

Push the buttons

On Monday I was on the Expresso Morning show creating a healthy smoothie and you can watch it here:

If you love reading Vanilla Blonde, I’d really appreciate you purchasing the latest Destiny Magazine (December issue) because there is an article about me, my blog and my blogging tips in “Blogging to Boost Your Brand.”

In other news, I am obsessed with the new Prada Journal sunglasses and Thula from Sunglass Hut in V&A Waterfront picked them out for me. As soon as I popped them onto my face I knew I wouldn’t be leaving without them. I love how big they are and it may not look like it in my photos, but they’re a dark grey and go with every single outfit.

I’ve been training at Sweat 1000 and also doing Pilates, which has been amazing for my core and my back!

I’ve been playing around with nail colours. I love Essence nail polishes. They are amazingly priced and always have the best colours and they really last long – just always ensure you don’t skip the top coat. This is a oil slick, colour changing colour called “Over the rainbow.”

The weather has been perfection and it’s quite a travesty I haven’t had a chance to hit the beach yet… Soon. I’ve been doing loads of 5km walks along the promenade and I can’t help but take a million pictures. I always breathe in the salty air, smile and count my blessings. It’s good for the soul.

I’m a lucky girl

After our walks, it’s always good to have a hearty breakfast….

The most exciting thing has been having my best friend and soul sister, Karolina and her hubby Filip and 3 month old Gabriel here in Cape Town, on holiday. To welcome them, I bought Gabriel his first Levi denim cap and Cotton On baby lobster board shorts.

I have been a baby hog and I’m not ashamed to admit it. He is pure perfection and smells so good, oh my gosh! When he grins it makes you feel like the best person in the world.

I even got to feed him some warmed up breastmilk.

 Giggles for mom…

 We headed over to Yzerfontein for a change of scenery and some lunch…

Sox’s creative way of rocking Gabriel

 Father Christmas was on the line and I think Gabriel was gurgling out that he’s been a good boy.

 These photo’s literally melted me… Uncle Sox and G

Such a beautiful and amazing mom, with G eyeing out the seafood pasta. Don’t worry baby G, you’ll be getting this a little later in the breast milk! Haha!

 The yellowtail in lemon butter and salad. YUM

I went with Sox to Caprice whilst he DJ’d and was there for about an hour before Dean, our good friend had a run in with a metal door, which sliced his heel open. Poor guy. It’s always those irritating split second moments that can change everything. As he stood back to take a phone call, the door slammed close onto his heel. I won’t share the bloody (Greys Anatomy type) pictures I took, but I left Sox and took Dean to the Emergency Room for some stitches. Never a dull moment.

Poor Dean

Right…it’s off to do my final show and then I’d better finish up my Christmas shopping!
