Dear friends and other interesting creatures, Last night, I opened a bottle of wine, very Shirley Valentine I was. My husband came home and gave me a strange look. Apparently coming home to me drinking wine is a new thing. Well, it is…. and I quite liked it! Last winter I had the wonderful opportunity to visit the McGregor, Robertson and Bonnievale area in the Cape. One of the many wine farms I visited was the Van Loveren Wine Estate. What drew me in, was the stories that surrounded the estate. I’m a sucker for a story, do read it … Continue reading Tangled in a tree with a crystal glass.
Dear friends and other interesting creatures, I’ve become a loyal fan of Glamore Cosmetics over the past few months. Not only because Gael and Emma is truly exceptional in customer service, but because the products are in a class of their own. Affordable, plenty variety and delivered to your door. There is always something new to look out for on their web site, so save it as a favourite. One of my first orders was the Eyeshadow Base. I had no idea there even was such a thing! It is easy to apply, great longevity because you use a small … Continue reading It’s all about the Base…

Dear friends and other interesting creatures, Once writer-director John Carney delivers in abundance in his latest musical offering with a splash of romance, Begin Again. Having seen the movie multiple times, I am not sure what I fall in love with more, the music or the characters, or Dan in a towel… not sure if that is in the movie, or only in my imagination – but it is an all round treat. Dan (Mark Ruffalo), a rather handsome in a “I haven’t bathed in weeks kinda look, but I could have it going on with a little help” is … Continue reading Begin Again @mnetmovies @SterKinekor @RosebankTheZone #MMScreanings #GirlfriendsGetaway
Dear friends and other interesting creatures, On Friday, I had the absolute pleasure of doing a @JoburgRedBus #HopOnHeritage tour with some awesome Twitter folks with much gratitude to City Sightseeing. It was a day of true enjoyment and much laughter. I am sure @WalterPike and @SpicedWeasel took especially awesome pictures as I had serious lens envy! Listening to the comments around me I felt incredibly blessed to be sharing my view of being a tourist in my own city. Especially once we entered the city centre, so many recalled memories (including me, yes – I am THAT old!). There was much laughter and entertainment by … Continue reading Winner of the @JoburgRedBus @budmarsh_lodge #HopOnHeritage is…
