Sisters With Blisters Walk 2011

What an amazing experience it was for an amazing cause!

We were up at 5am to make sure that we were ready for the first walk which kicked off at 7h30 this Saturday morning!

Sisters With Blisters is an initiative started by Jacaranda FM and involves thousands of people walking and taking a stand against woman and child abuse. And literally thousands of people pitched up for todays event.

We got onto the float to kick the first walk off and already I was in awe of the amount of people that came out to support the initiative. If the first walk was anything to go by then the rest was definitely going to be amazing!

It was not soon until we decided to get off the float and join the men and woman in the walk, some in heels and some in fairy outfits all sporting pink!! Even some of the guys were wearing heels! I take my hat off to them as 8km is quite a distance to do in heels, but well worth it!

The dog walk took off soon after with some canines sporting their own pink endowed outfits!

After having a quick lunch and something to drink we made our way to the starting point again to kick off the last walk of the day and this time around the masses of people walking had multiplied in size!

As we encouraged the ladies along the route it was clear that there was a lot of support for this cause and I am pretty sure that next year the turnout is probably going to double in size!

If you have not yet done the walk yet I urge you to join us next year and show your support! I know I will be doing it every year from now on and remember, it does not end at the finish line, this is something that people have to live by and constantly push to reduce woman and child abuse.

Thank you to Jacaranda for taking the time out to organize something so amazing all in aid of charity! You guys are super stars in my books!

Exam Time!

This morning marks the start of my exams, which will also see the end of my first year working towards my BA degree in Marketing at VEGA.

So far so good, I am writing Finance today, in about an hour to be precise and spent most of the day yesterday and the day before preparing for the exam. Of course this morning I woke up feeling tired as hell, but hey, it is nearly over… Then I got my Critical Studies exam on Friday, so the studying does not end. A typical day for me at the moment consists out of getting up, showering, hitting the books, taking a break to gym and hitting the books again, not very exciting at all!

This Friday, Ryan and I will be heading to the movies with a couple of friends to watch Breaking Dawn, I have never really been a fan, but it sounds like it should be pretty good.

My birthday is also coming up on the 16th of December and the plan is just to be really chilled, the plan for the whole of December is to be really chilled, we might do some traveling, but at the moment I am not too sure… :0)

Yesterday I got a call after entering a competition online while voting for Ryan for Face Of Markham and was told that I had won a Samsung Gio mobile phone, it was only released in March, so that is pretty cool, they deliver it this week. I am not too sure what I am going to do with it, but will see…

I should be picking up the pics from this past Saturday’s shoot with Roman Handt, I am really looking forward to seeing them as they looked super while we were shooting! And it was a very fun shoot to do with a whole bunch of great people!

Oki doki! I am off to write my exam now, then hitting the shops and gym, then more studying!

Till laters…!
