5 Things I Learned This Week

January 14, 2018

It’s been 731 days since I’ve had a break. Yes, you read correctly. Two years and 4 weeks have gone by since I was physically separated from my computer. I haven’t had a weekend away or even a day trip to rest and heal my soul. Its been go, go and go some more. With a job in Social Media, it’s easy to log onto a device and start working from the minute you open your eyes and I do that.

Technology also accommodates communication at any hour of the day. I receive queries, messages or calls from 7:00 am until 10 at night. It’s insane and I’ve allowed it. Well, no more. I’ve been sucked dry and have nothing more to give. So here’s what I learned this week.

Bilboa Restaurant & Chinchilla Bar Launch; the looks I loved and my style tip for cocktail wear

January 13, 2018

Bilboa Restaurant and Chinchilla Bar above it is the latest hotspot on the Camps Bay strip. Perched on the site of the old Camps Bay Blues, it epitomises the all the cosmopolitan glamour which Cape Town summers are renowned for.

The launch party was hosted by Marina Nestel of The Little Black Book PR on an evening which didn’t hold a breath of wind (rare) and where the sunset literally showed off (common). I took two dates to the event for two very good reasons. 1. My usual Duncan Pape and his partner Gabriel Verryne are uber hot so the chances of me looking amazing were pretty high:) and (2) they are my top style tip for cocktail wear.

Station On Bree Summer Reveal

January 4, 2018

The Station On Bree Summer Reveal is an old post but now that I’ve hit rubber to tar with commitments to fill and a backlog to kill, I need to tell you about it. Actually, that’s not the only reason. This little party place is really cool. Like, seriously!

When The Orphanage Cocktail Lounge downsized last year, I wondered what new gem would sprout in its place. Another luxury space with over priced drinks and foam art food, perhaps? Contraire! Station on Bree turned out to be the total opposite. My first visit back in October was a kickass post-AfrikaBurn party with more hot gay men and crazy outfits than MCQP on steroids. So, when Marina Nestel and Ingrid Altmann from The Little Black Book invited Duncan and I to the Summer Reveal at the end of November, we didn’t need much convincing.
