Moments of the week
Food & Wine – Of course, the best start to any week is dinner with friends and a solid supply of wine. When the wine is sponsored, so much the better!
Being artsy – Went to the opening of the Swimming Upstream photography exhibition at the Grand Daddy on Longstreet. Love sipping a glass of champers, pretending to be oh-so-cool and soaking up the vibe at artsy events… 🙂 Swimming upstream showcases Kathalijne Van Zutphen’s photography – my pics wouldn’t do it justice, check out her work here.
Being a bit nerdy – Bought a book, a NEW one! (I’m a second-hand bookstore fanatic, so this was quite the occasion.)
Being a lady who lunches – Lunched at Bread, Milk & Honey.
Pretty city – Hung out in the Company Gardens with a friend saying goodbye to a sunny day – summer’s here people!
Booty calls – Received a hilarious 2:12am Dutch booty call. (And no, I didn’t go – the only reason I answered was because I was too asleep to realise my phone had a call-reject button. That and I didn’t know who was calling me – curiousity won out.
Moving mountains – Climbed Lion’s Head for the first time – before breakfast, imagine!
DISNEY (need I say more?) – Had a Disney cheese-and-wine evening – just the girls and the gays. Might be a controversial choice, but Mulan really is a strong contender for the funniest Disney EVER!
Being scandalous – Went to my cousin’s bachelorette’s. ‘Nuff said.
Being tough – Got up at 5am on a Sunday and walked 20km for charity. Bear in mind aforementioned bachelorette’s – I even impressed myself with that one. The blisters underneath my feet and racerback vest tan? Not so much fun.
Gatecrashing life on the other side – Gatecrashed a shmancy hotel* and lay around poolside on white towels, sipping cocktails, checking out the eye candy and pretending to be the little rich girls we’re not. A girl needs to revel in the lap of luxury after walking 20km though – and who says no to cocktail hour on a 30-degree Sunday?! Not me.
*Location details can’t be divulged as I plan on doing it again.
Bad blogger – didn’t get any pics of most of this. Must-have for this week: Camera.
