It’s been quite a while since my last post (my apologies) – but I’m back and ready to start talking (well, writing).
1. NWJ Bridal Fair was GREAT (As always)
2. The Wedding Expo in JHB was just as amazing
3. Bride of the Year rocked my world (the event got great coverage and was featured on two television programmes respectively)
4. I still love working out and eating healthily
5. I’ve obtained my BTech Degree in PR
Jip; That’s my mom and I
6. I’ve turned a wonderful 24 (and spotted my 1st wrinkle..SH*T)
Birthday Celebration Dinner which I hosted
7. I found my new favourite blog: Broadbites.com
8. Shopping is still a problem for me; I Love it too much (I doubt that’s going to change)
9. I’ve met the most amazing women
10. I lost my assistant (I pray she’s in a wonderful place)
11. I did my 1st (paid-for) shoot
12. My friend got engaged
There have been so many things happening; I think I’ll leave you with this broad list and continue a more detailed blog post tomorrow.
Have a good Evening.

Yesterday was quite the day of eating since arriving in Durban on Friday – the morning started of with a 3km run, follwed by 120 different sit-ups and crunches as well as a few push-ups!
I went for breakfast at around 8:30 and what a feast for the eyes! It was so hot – as always it seems – so I ended up having Belaire Suit’s homemade granola, greek yoghurt and loads and loads of fruit! It was delicious but I may have overindulged just a little bit, nontheless I grabbed 2 apples and – was on my way to the NWJ Bridal fair!
Like I mentioned; Durban is very hot as well as dry – this leaves me thirsty all the time! So I had about 3L of water as well as apples and a Yoga Berry (no dairy) Kauai Smoothie for lunch! Hmmmm!
This is still all good and well; what followed the evening may have been – what do they call it – carb overload! It was amazingly delicious though! Myself and a friend went to Cafe Jiran for dinner – we had wine, the most amazing veg lasagne I’ve EVER eaten follwed by what might have been the best ice cream and chocolate sauce in our existance!
It was a super fun night – the only thing is; I still have to have true Durban Curry! So, tonight I’m on the search for just that!
It’s drizzling today but nevertheless; I’m attempting at least a 2km jog! That ice-cream certainly won’t vanish any other way!
I’ll post some more pics soon!

Being from Cape Town; I’m not use to the humid weather I’m currently experiencing in Durban!
I just arrived in the city of heat – no I’m not referring to the curry! According to my phone the real feel of today is 36! I should be on Campsbay Beach and then Bungalow enjoying a mojito but alas; I’m in Durban.
I don’t mind that much though – I’m here to meet and greet industry vendors and brides-to-be which is always great!
I’ll post updates and pics!

There are very few people in this world who can say they love their jobs; well luckily I’m one of them – I adore mine.
As this is quite a strange fact you may be questioning the statement; well to put your mind at ease – the main reason why I love my job is: The beauty it comes with.
While at the Canal Walk Bridal Expo I’m intrigued by all the brides-to-be and their (willing or non) fiancées - browsing and asking questions. So excited for what their future holds; excited about all the ideas and newest trends. Sometimes it happens that you get use to all the prettiness that is the wedding industry, and you forget that it holds such a special meaning to these bridal couples.
Being part of their love journey is what makes my job so amazing; yes you have your off days and yes people still get upset about the smallest things but to them – it’s important; they’re planning their big day – and they are allowing you to join them on their journey; to me it’s an honour more than a job!
