Muggings, High Speed Chases, Robberies, Seychelles, Pavement Bashing, Giggles & Laughs

Bad luck comes in threes? Is that right? Think I got it right... Or in this case, when it rains it farking pours! *Ty Scratches Head* 

Anyhow, so just before I left for the Seychelles last week, as in literally two nights before getting on the plane, I became the target of theft, again! Earlier this year mates and I, on a photo shoot got held up by armed robbers and stripped of our mobile phones, thank heavens no one was hurt!

Then about a month ago, after a night out of clubbing, we were followed/ stalked as we left the club by guys who had been watching my mates and I the whole night! We endured a high speed car chase that started off with 3 cars, 2 of which were after us. I managed to break my own personal speed record by exceeding 200km/h trying to get rid of who ever the peeps were who were chasing us! Thank heavens we managed to first loose the one by tricking him and taking a sneaky alternate route off the highway, but his partner in crime kept on our tails but by taking on the turns, twists, circles and corners of some back roads we eventually lost hime too. All I can say is that it was super scary, but such an adrenalin rush too! haha!

What makes this time worst though is that it all happened while I was asleep in my bedroom! It is the idea of someone as in a strange someone getting into your place and actually going into your room while you asleep and taking your things! And what PEEEES me off even more is that the security complex that I live in has 24 hour security guards, cameras, electric fencing and the whole shebang, hence why I moved here 3 months ago, for security! One would think that it would be kinda safe living in such a complex? Well these guys managed to break into 3 apartments on the same night, two of which are on the top floor! {HASHTAG: Not Feeling Safe & So Pissed Off That I Lost My Mac!}

Great! Now that I got all that bitching out the way, I can let the positive flow in! All I can do is laugh and wave at the above experiences!

The Seychelles was absolutely amazing and I loved every single SPLIT second! Met the most amazing people and honestly came back with so much more of a clear mind and a positive, motivated but yet super relaxed and chilled attitude, ready to take on any challenge, with the feeling of that there really are no challenges in life but just experiences. One of my mates made a comment and stated that it is as I am on anti depressants and that I have definitely become more relaxed! And I was only there for 5 days! The trip started off on Air Seychelles drinking champagne in business class and it only got better from there onwards :0) What made the trip more interesting was spraining my ankle and walking around using crutches for two days and then being carried along the beach and from point A to B, so no complaints! Luckily I recovered enough to get around myself, but am still battling a bit with the ankle now. They Reckon 3 weeks for it to heal?

SO THEN... haha! And you may laugh, because I did... I go and ramp my car onto a really big, but yet small ramp in a parking lot after doing some shopping. There I was changing my tyre in the South African sun, people driving by on the busy main road and all I could do really was just have a laugh about it all! The car is in the hospital for minor injuries and will be back with me tomorrow.

So after all of this, I at least have the Mr. Model International pageant to look forward to next month. I shall be jetting off to the USA for about 3 weeks to represent South Africa at the pageant, it will be my first time in the USA, so am really excited about it!

Right, I am going to seriously just ease into the rest of this evening and take it slow and relax before the craziness of the new weeks starts! Hope you all have a super fab week! Sending you all big hugs and love!

Keep safe!

Back at gym and hitting it hard

So I gave gym a skip for 3 months, oh well... haha! But am now back and ready to kill it and teaching me some new tricks I got my good mate, Ivor and personal trainer kicking my ass! 

One thing I realised though after my extended gym vacation was that I am super grateful that I have trained hard over the last 6 years, therefor did not loose much :0) So all smiles... The only thing that I did loose was strength! But hey, will get that back :0)

Here is to a super new season at the gym!

Fan Page Exceeds 30K

Happy to announce that the fan page exceeded 30k fans a few days ago and the numbers are still growing. Thank you to all of those who have joined and to those that keep supporting and most importantly thank you to those who have been there since the beginning.



The Dark Side

Recently I had the opportunity of working with Hendrik Van Der Merwe who is also a VEGA graduate {Brother's from another mother you know ;0) } and the amazing Pieter Serton.

At first, Hendrik approached me in a very shy manner with the concept and some reference images. I think he was surprised to get a definite 'YES' from me so quickly after speaking to him, but it just so happened that for a while before he approached me I had been wanting to do something that placed me out of my comfort zone, pushed my boundaries and that was not so 'model' and 'pretty' like. I pretty much had a similar vision as to what was presented to me, hence there not being a second thought to my answer.

The location was about an hour out of Johannesburg in a massive warehouse, a very cold warehouse that is! haha! As soon as we were ready to get started with the shoot I was down to literally nothing, they did not have to ask twice, after all it was a closed set! I did keep my 'parts' covered though, did not want to offend anyone! ;) Ummm, except for the part where I had my hands tied behind my back, which I think was planned! haha! 

It was a fun day shooting, especially with fellow ICE model Huguette and with a great team.

Hope you enjoy the shots as much as I enjoyed shooting them!
