2010 - A YEAR TO REMEMBER









As I step into 2011 this evening, I leave a year of happy, sad and excited moments behind.

The promises I made to myself at the end of 2009 I fulfilled, I strived to achieve each goal and to do what I said I would do.

From taking a step in my personal life, which was needed and to taking steps towards building a new career, I have done it and I am satisfied that I have lived 2010 to its full potential.

I have moved house, met new people, made a life changing decision to study something I am passionate about and have once again moved cities to accommodate the decision, all to benefit me in 2011.

Some moments which highlight my year are moments spent with true friends and family, having the support by the ones who believe in me and the choices I have made.

In 2011 I will strive to be the best I can be, to be pro active in the decisions I make and to make decisions which will benefit me in 2012.

Happy New Year to you all and may the year be filled with joyous moments which will be for the betterment of your lives.

Range Rover Evoque launch at the Sandton's Radisson hotel December



My mate Wayne Buckley and I popped in at Sandton's Radisson hotel to check out the launch of the new Range Rover Evoque this past Wednesday.

It was evident that this was a launch for Land Rover as there were quite a few of these vehicles parked outside of the hotel. Inside they had done an amazing job with sound and lighting, which was quite pink I must add. With drinks and snacks making the rounds among the guests it sure turned into a fun evening.

The centre of attraction was the new Range Rover Evoque. It would have been great to see the physical vehicle but guests had to make do with a life-size wire model of the vehicle painted pink and images of the SUV scrolling across the plasma screens. The wire car was rumored to have cost 250K to have had made, but I am not buying into that.

Apparently this vehicle is the smallest and most fuel- efficient SUV ever to be launched by the British brand and Victoria Beckham played a lead role in designing the interior. I think the vehicle is definitely targeted to the female market, which explained all the pink that evening.

With guests such as socialite Edith Venter and Hlubi Mboya, best known for her role as HIV positive Nandipha in the hugely popular daily soap, Isidingo, Craig Jacobs, brainchild behind local Eco fashion brand, Fundudzi and Siphiwe Mpye, Deputy Editor of GQ Magazine it was clear that the launch of this SUV was a big thing.

Later that evening some guests including Wayne and myself made our way up to the all exclusive ZAR nightclub for a little bit of a jiggle, I must add, ZAR has the most amazing views of the golden city, Johannesburg.
All in all I give my evening a 10 out of 10 and a big well done to Land Rover on their new Range Rover baby!

From Durban to Cape Town and now Johannesburg...

 
I took a look back at some of my pictures on FB, my tagged ones and pictures in my folders, especially the Durban ones with my Durban mates and geez! Some amazing memories were created.



From the first day I set foot in Durban to the day I departed for the Cape, every day will remain an unforgettable day.

I must admit I got a little bit emotional looking back at some amazing times, times I would not mind reliving.

Cape Town was a great pit stop after Struisbaai and before heading to JHB. I spent my days either traveling around with mates or just lazing about in the Sun. I also finally got the chance to meet my half-sister who I have never met before, she is my age and an amazing person, we had plenty fun out and about.

From St Yves to Fez and Bronx, we had plenty fun. Chilling on Clifton with some of my Durban mates and also making some new Cape Town mates, all in all it was a great Holiday.


Since being in Johannesburg it has also been none stop, from shoots to some filming and spending time with friends at the ultra-cool Zar night club, finally today I have the chance just to chill in the sun by the pool with family.


There is still plenty to do here before I am fully set up, like buying the new car, finding a nice apartment close to studies etc etc…

Anyhow, all will happen in time. For now I am just grateful that my family are willing to accommodate me over the December period.

Lotsa love!
