I’ve been sick for a really long time. I loathe anti-biotics and can’t remember the last time I was ill, so I went with the “wait it out” approach. Weeks later I have found myself not bouncing back as I would usually expect and s a result have re-examined my toxicity levels.
I’m de-toxing. Bye bye booze and for the most part “Hello Vegan Diet.”
I could sing the praises of Vegan cuisine long past your attention span, but I also do not feel I am at a stage in my life where I can completely eliminated egg whites, sushi on occasion – perhaps the odd glass of celebratory bubbly?
So I’m not telling you all I am a Vegan. I am not a Vegan – I’m just going to be shifting my focus onto a Vegan diet and avoiding alcohol for a while, and I hope that in my upcoming… [ Read more ]
My Thursday’s theme-song for this week is none other than Goodnight Wembley!‘s new single “Time Machine.”
An absolutely rocking tune, this one has been in my head since their video launch at Mercury on Saturday, and after playing on 5fm for only 3 days (today being the 4th) they have already made the Top 40! Have a listen out for them over the weekend, or download their single for free from their Facebook page.
You can follow them on twitter to keep up to date with all of their up-to-the-minute news.
You can see some of my own personal snapshots of them and a whole lotta words I used to describe their sound in this article.
an expression of farewell used in parting at nighttime or when going to sleep.
Wembley Stadium: (place)
Often referred to simply as Wembley, pronounced /ˈwɛmbli/, or sometimes as the New Wembley, is a football stadium located in Wembley Park, in the Borough of Brent, London, England. Non-sporting uses include large concerts by artists.
Goodnight Wembley! hails from George v/d Spuy (Taxi Violence) – Vocals, Nic Gaud (7th Son) – Guitar & Vocals, Alex Krause (Dead Lucky) – Guitar, Gideon de Kock (Like Knives/Yes Sir! Mister Machine) – Bass Guitar, Jean Labuschagne (Dead Lucky/Machineri/Stepdog) – Drums. A culmination of five unique takes on the sense of excitement that an amazing musical performance awakens in all of us.
All from different backgrounds, these muso’s from the mother city are pulling together their own grunge, rock and pop culture references resulting in a sound that is… [ Read more ]
Though I had wanted to blog this sooner, the busy time that has been my life over the last three weeks was a blessing – not only because it has introduced a bouquet of new possibilities to my life and career – but also because it means that I am now able to blog the experience with the added behind the scenes photos and videos Sports Illustrated have recently posted.
First off the preparation for the shoot was… intense. In the interest of explaining to the non-models of this world I feel it is my moral obligation to explain that I did not wake up looking like this:
I had a spray tan (brown not orange) from Just Skin Clinic, eyelash extensions from Nina of Laser and Lashes, my teeth organically (pain and risk free) whitened by Pure Smile,and my beautiful bouncy locks were nurtured, conditioned… [ Read more ]
Thursday the 24th marks the start of the Ungowaja Challenge. The 10 day cycle from Cape Town to Pietermaritzburg, followed by the Comrades Marathon on the 11th day.
With this in mind I have chosen Queen’s “Bicycle Race” as Thursday’s Themesong.
Those of you who haven’t seen the Red Socks Ungowaja photoshoot by Robert Miller can view it here: *click*
Thanks to Jo and Mike I also have this behind the scenes video.
If you are reading this before Thursday the 24th May – I hope to see you at the Southern Sun Hotel (Waterfront) at 4am – preferably with your red socks on.
Frisky Friday kittens.
I’m shooting with Sports Illustrated today – and I’m going to be arriving at the shoot in red socks.
Why red socks? Not because they go with everything… because they don’t….
but they do represent a number of things – red socks fridays is “a movement dedicated to making a difference, being passionate, inspiring others and being inspired, staying positive, remembering friends and expressing yourself!”
Red Socks Fridays was started by John McInroy
John likes his speedo. We forgive him because he looks delicious in it.
He is also (more importantly) a part of the Unogwaja Challenge:

Today’s the day! #Cansa is continuing their annual head shaving fundraiser, collecting money for the research and treatment of Cansa and the people affected by it.
Scar – the hair salon all of the best and bad love – have decided to take it one step further this year, giving people not only the opportunity to pop into the balcony and have their head shaved by the wonderful Natalie Roos or Dan Nash, but also allowing them to donate money through supporting the auction which so many amazing people and brands have donated for.
Gary Cool is MC’ing on the day, there is rumor of wasabi peanut cupcakes from Anja, a bar run/drunk by Snoddie and vegetarian/home made beef burgers complete with home-made mayo, relish and served on a home baked brioche made by Neill Vaughn and myself.
This is how Neill and I spent our Friday night…… [ Read more ]
I know some of you think Dubstep is the answer to your musical needs – and some of you think it sounds like aliens raping one another… but I came across this song this week and I really enjoyed it so behold it is today’s Thursday’s Themesong!
This song from Angus and Julia Stone has also been on my mind when I wake up this week, so you can have it too.
I came across this little info-graphic showing the awesomeness of coffee throughout time. Check it out:

In March 2012 Lucky Pet launched South Africa’s first ever cat census.
Having already counted over 3000 cats, they stopped by my sister’s house to paw some answers from our five felines.
I could only find Mario… the other kitties were hiding or hunting or playing cat tricks on us…
so I entered their answers later online.
Then I took some photos of them playing with Lucky Pet toys – and trying out Lucky Pet’s New Supreme Cat Food – which all cats love with the exception of Minki – who refuses to eat anything other than freshly cooked chicken or “packet food” – in jelly, not sauce.
