I had an incredible time recently with Topshop V&A Waterfront Cape Town. I used their personal shopping service and I was super impressed! Anyone can use this service, it’s free and it’s available to all customers. Simply ask for it when you arrive. You may be treated to a good bottle of bubbly or a cappuccino while you’re at it!

This past week I received a nomination for the BWA Regional Business Achiever Awards in the category of “Emerging Entrepreneur”. I am absolutely honoured by this and look forward to the judging interview process and gala event in May. Thank you, BWA! I thoroughly enjoyed the business breakfast held at the V&A Waterfront Clocktower in the Atlantic Imbizo Conference Room. I took some lovely photos of the view from the conference room over the harbour in the early morning.
This friday night I’m MC’ing the event “Diner on the Wharf” at the V&A Waterfront’s Market on the Wharf. I’m super excited about this event, which is definitely going to be an amazing night of fun. With a three course meal, wine provided by Spier wine estate, a talk by senior winemaker at Spier Johan Jordaan and stunning prize giveaways, things will be very festive from 7pm. The cost is R200 per person, and you can book through “Go4Ward” Marketing & Events Company. To book, e-mail email@example.com or contact them via the event’s facebook page. You can find the Market on the Wharf building along the waterfront right next to the Aquarium.
I love Earth Hour and what it’s about.
It’s a worldwide event organized by the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) and held towards the end of March annually, encouraging households and businesses to turn off their non-essential lights for one hour to raise awareness about the need to take action on climate change.
Recently I attended some really cool events…The Sunglass Hut “Out The Box” Party at the V&A Waterfront was one. To launch their latest venture with a bang, “Out the Box” (or #SunglassHutOTB as it has been hashtagged) set up a huge marquee at the waterfront and equipped it with lights, cameras, (lots of champagne) and action! MC Janez Vermeiren from Top Billing held the evening together and introduced renowned South African musician Toya DeLazy who performed for us. The pop-up-store then unveiled the latest collection to be released in 2013. I was soo chuffed with my R1000 vouchers to spend at Sunglass Hut. It was in joburg at Melrose Arch a few nights prior to that and from what I hear it was also quite spectacular. Thank you Sunglass Hut for an awesome event.

I then went to The GoodHope FM’s Summer Launch Party at The Cullinan Hotel in association with Tsogo Sun and The Next 48 Hours, which was fantastic! There were drinks and snacks going around. There was a stellar performance by a Cape Town singer Lucy Tops, singing an Adele hit – she was very good. You should like her page HERE and support local talent 🙂
Finally, as you know, GAGA was in town! For those who didn’t, what town are you living in?! The Next 48 Hours was awesome enough to organize an exclusive boat cruise around Table Bay before the concert. There was champagne – a lot of it (surprise I didn’t fall overboard) and yummy snacks. Here is a gallery of the snaps from the cruise… you can view the official photos HERE.
I’ve also included youtube videos of Gaga at the concert!
Enjjjooooyyyy and don’t forget to PUT YOUR PAWS UP!!
