Today is the DAY!

Ewald, my amazing Namibian boyfriend and I have been together for a YEAR!

Yeah for some of you veteran relationshippy people, that might seem like nothing, but I am so happy and proud of us and I’m pretty sure this will be the first of many beautiful years together.

I never thought I would find someone who is so matched to me. We like the same things, we’re both pretty smart so we can have real conversations and we’re RIDICULOUSLY good looking so we only have eyes for each other :P

Anyway, some pictures I have of us from DAY ONE (yes really) to today.

Lyk-my-sterk, tshirt tan and all, I just had a feeling there was something there.

Our baby kitty Zazu

Watching the game at De Kelder, showing some love :)

The most sneaky photo-bomber ever

Being silly

I know I'll never walk alone coz me and this LFC supporter are just too amazing together

I love you babe. Thanks for 365 days of winning.

Can’t wait to have my ghd from Stylescoop

To my regular readers, sorry if my constant ghd and stylescoop posts are pissing you off, or if you feel they are spammy, but a girl’s gotta do what a girl’s gotta do to get her little hands on a ghd. It’s just one of those life things. Like MAC foundation. You have to have it.

Anyway, it is my 1 year anniversary with my amazing boyfriend Ewald on Saturday (YAY) and my friend Michelle has very sweetly lent me her ghd (the mark of a TRUE friend) so that I can look extremely beautiful when we reach our Top Secret destination (I can’t WAIT to find out where we’re going).

Hopefully soon, I will have my very own ghd thanks to StyleScoop and ghd!

If you haven’t gone there yet, see StyleScoop’s fb page here (loads of really cool style-related stuff – I always end up on the site for at least a few minutes every day) and ghd’s fb page here (um. It’s the ghd page, what are you waiting for?) . GO GO GO!

…oooh look at the pretty rainbow

ok so I’m in a REALLY bad mood coz some of my fav brands are REALLY making me cross.

I’m not  going to blog about it just yet as I have decided to give them a chance to fix it first. If nothing is done by the end of today, you’ll definitely be hearing ALL the sordid details right here.

For now, I’m going to try and focus on pretty things like rainbows and butterflies. Just so I can get work done without having a temper tantrum.

Pretty sure Ariel didn’t sing it like this…

So my friend Marieke and Philip and I were commenting on a wall post all about drinking etc. As one does.

All of a sudden Marieke broke out this bad boy:

Look at those drunks
Aren’t they so sweet
Would you say their alcohol levels complete
Wouldn’t you say I’m the girl
The girl who drank everything?
Look at them go
Drunken adventures untold
How many wonders can one tanvern hold?
Lookin’ around here you’d think
Sure, she drank everything.I’ve drank whisky and Vodka already
I’ve got liquor and Brandy galore
(You want Mike’s Hard Ice Tea, I drank 20)
But who cares, no big deal, I want more

I wanna be where the boozers are
I wanna hear, I wanna hear ‘em slurrin’
Stumblin’ around on those ( whadda call ‘em) Feet
Sippin’ wine coolers you don’t get too drunk
Alcohol is required for gigglin’, belchin’
Trippin’ down a
(What’s that word again) Street

Up where they booze
Up where they hiccup
Up where they do shots all day with someone
Non-alcohol free, wish I could be
Drunk in your world

When’s it my turn
Wouldn’t I love
To explore that bar above?
Sober? Not me.
I have to go pee.
Drunk in your world.

Yeah, now sing it to the tune of “Part of Your World” in the Little Mermaid.
Amazing.
I can see some intoxicated singing coming along…

STYLESCOOP and GHD are going to make my dream come true!

Ok, as many of you know, I’ve always wanted a ghd. In fact I posted about it a few months ago, which you can view here.

I nag my friends to bring theirs along when they come visit me, I am happiest when my hair has been done PROPERLY with a ghd. In fact, owning one could only make my life that much more awesome.

Stylescoop is running a competition, giving away THREE ghd’s and hopefully this time I’ll be one of the LUCKY winners. (I mean, it’s gotta happen sometime right?)

I want this one Stylescoop & ghd:

stylescoop, ghd, competition, Iconic Era's

Stylescoop is, of course, FILLED with fabulosity and you should check them out here and here for all the latest in style and beauty. Really great.

And, GHD. WOW. I have no words to describe how much I REALLY really want one. I’ll NEVER have a bad hair day EVER again. BYEEEE bad fringe day. Helloooooooo stunning hair ALL the time!Visit them here and here.

One of my life-mantras is: no matter what clothes you’re wearing, even if you’re having a fat week month day or if you’re in a bad mood,  if your hair looks gorgeous, you LOOK and feel beautiful, which makes you feel happy and more confident.

So ghd and  Stylescoop, PLEASE MAKE MY LIFE and gimme a ghd :) I’ll be the BEST brand ambassador EVER.

You have enough to share!

Recently the WP Blood donor centre was in DESPERATE need of O group donors. So I went to donate:

In fact, if you have healthy blood, it’s your RESPONSIBILITY to donate regularly!

Don’t talk nonsense to me about “I’m scared of needles” or “I don’t have time” just go do it.

It’s really not so bad, they ALWAYS give you a little thank you present and a juice/coffee/tea AND a cookie. totes worth it.

They have fixed donation centers here:

N1 CITY MALL
Shop 40B
Phone 021 595 0925

22 LONG STREET
Phone 021 421 2570

and roaming clinics which you can keep an eye out for here

For any other information go to the WP Blood website.

Don’t be silly, just do this for your community and for yourself.

Don’t forget that one day it might be you that needs the blood, and what if there isn’t any available?
