EVENT REVIEW: 2012 YFM Youth Day Party

I attended the 2012 YFM Youth Day Party at The Blue Room in Park Station on the 29th of June 2012. When I first heard about the venue I thought “Yoh, a party at CBD” Damn, am I now eating my words. *kindly bites on humble pie*

The event was so unique, wow that was thee most beautiful venue I’ve ever been to! Wow YFM. Chilled Vibes, Great Deco! Words CANNOT describe how beautiful the venue was!

My Favourite moment was when Bonang ‘Queen B’ Matheba went on Stage haaaaa!! That girl stays winning, she’s the queen indeed! She makes sure everyone feels her presence.

I spotted : Toya Delazy, DJ Cleo– Yoh this guy can dance, DJ Tira – love this guy, wow I must say I really enjoyed DJ Shimza‘s set, Amstel– I’m not so sure about the leather trench coat he was wearing, Tumi Voster, Can we please take a moment of silence for J Something wow he’s hot AF, speaking of J Something Micasa‘s performance was A M A Z I N G, Also saw Dineo Ranaka the husky darling of the small screen who has viewers tuning to Vuzu TV for her reality show Dineo’s Diary which is launching on the 4th of July and ofcause our queen Bonang Matheba

My experience at the YFM King of Thrones exceeded my expectations in every way. I hate standing in queues to pay for entrance *sigh*, it was hella packed but overall the event was outstanding. I rate the event 4.7 out of 5. Congrats to YFM for the great event.

Remona Moodley To Represent SA at Miss World

Miss South Africa 2011 First Princess Remona Moodley will be representing Miss South Africa at The Miss World Pageant 2012, held on the 18th August in Ordos, Inner Mongolia, China.

The reigning Miss South Africa Melinda Bam will not participate due to personal reasons but she did confirm on twitter that she will be still participating in the 2012 Miss Universe Pageant.

As a pageant lover and follower I know Remona’s titles include 1st Princess for Miss SA Teen in 2006 and Miss India South Africa in 2005. I know she will do well and represent South Africa to the best of her abilities. At the Miss South Africa and South Africa Teen workshop on Sunday 24 June, Remona did mention she’s in the corporate world now.

We wish Remona all the best. She has our support !

Like Seriously !

I was reading tweets on my time line and something caught my attention. A tweet by @KeroCarrots.
RT @KeroCarrots: Different parties, same performers … every weekend. Surely we have many artists in SA *shrugs*

This is so true. Its always the same crowd, same celebrities, different events. I never understand why people always attend events that have the same people on the ‘guestlist’. Don’t you get tired of seeing each other ? I hate it when V Entertainment attends an event they DON’T even show us what’s happening at the event, asking ‘Celebrities’ questions. Every episode the same celebrities.

I feel like most South African Musicians are talented but they are denied the opportunity to be exposed to South Africans and rest of the world, when those that already have been privileged enough to have opportunities get to perform at different events EVERY night or even worse when international artists come here and make money and then go.

I honestly fail to understand the entertainment industry. Can we give other kids a chance?

Phew, enough venting for now !

Product Review : Satiskin Peach Blossom Bubble Bath

I’m excited to share with you a product review I did recently . I reviewed a bubble bath, not just any bubble bath, Better yet, it’s Satiskin!

A few weeks ago, I spotted their TV ad with South African Model Shashi Naidoo. I took to Twitter and nosed around, asking for more information on their products. The company has a great social media presence and responded promptly. I asked for permission to do a review and they agreed, so I bought the Satiskin Peach Blossom Bubble Bath.

I was excited to try this. Its a soft, creamy bubble bath that makes gentle, scented bubbles. A lovely and relaxing scent – with a hint of citrus. Perfect after a long day.

The scent was dreamy, and it really conditions the water, leaving skin silky smooth. I think a milk bath would be a more appropriate name.

If you are used to the finer things in life, you will love Satiskin Products. It consists of premium quality bath products that leave your skin as soft and tender as a loving kiss.

One of the most important ways of taking care of your body is to have a good bath. There is no doubt that a good bath cleans and refreshes your body but it can be relaxing for the mind as well.

Satiskin has the perfect range of products to offer the indulgence every woman deserves.

You can buy it almost everywhere : Game, Makro, Pick n Pay, Spar, Checkers.

I like the product and I’m satisfied, I really love the fragrance and I rate it a perfect 5 out of 5 stars

EVENT REVIEW : Gauteng 2012 Miss SA & SA Teen Workshop

I attended The 2012 Gauteng Miss South Africa/Miss SA Teen/Model/Self Improvement Workshop which was held at The Sandton Sun Hotel on Sunday 24 June 2012.

The MC and host was the lovely Gauteng Scout and Former Miss South Africa Lorna Potgieter-Rossetti

The First Speaker was Wendy Futcher – Pageants and Fashion Event Executive at Sun International. She told us more about her job, how she works with the ladies. The importance of charities, media and sponsors. The difference between Miss Universe and Miss World. Sounds like a cool job !

Remona Moodley , Thuli Sangweni and Tasha Jenneker were called onto stage. They told us about their experiences, what they learned, what they are doing now and Thuli’s tip was that you should have fun and be yourself!

Peter Morey was the next speaker. He told us about the importance of the pictures you use to apply with. The pictures are your ‘CV’, your only chance to be called in for an interview.

Natalie Petersen discussed a lot of things, I really enjoyed her presentation. As a woman you should look after your skin – Face and Body included. From your hair line to your toes. Your nails should be neat. Every lady must own eye cream, neck cream, hand cream. I was shocked ! It was the first time I hear about something called neck cream. She also said “Your eyes, neck, hands don’t lie about your age… Look after them, Your Skin Is an investment”.

The 5th Speaker was our Reigning Miss South Africa Melinda Bam , WOW Miss. Bam , I don’t even know where to start. She is a shining star who stands out among the others. She is a true role model and inspiration to all… She told us about her journey thus far and how she loves meeting south africans . She told us about her charity and the funds she’s raising for them. She shared a story with us and started crying, I couldn’t hold back my tears, I was so touched, I am still touched. She will always be my favourite Miss South Africa.

She shared 7 Tips:
1. Know that your tue identity is where your strength lies.

2. Be teachable… Choose your mentors wisely. Coaches choose you, you can choose your mentors.

3. First impressions might be your only impressions.

4. A book will always be judged by it’s cover, make sure your outside resembles you inside.

5. Comfort is a trade off for growth. Growing is supposed to be painful it is vital to go forward.

6. Leaving something of yourself behind, doesn’t mean losing yourself.

7. The person who forgets the ultimate is a slave to the immediate.

All in all she really is beautiful inside and out!

We had a short interval where light refreshments were served.

Then, Kieno Kammies spoke. His presentation was so funny. He was giving the ladies tips. He is a Miss South Africa Judge! Wow that guy. I spoke to him during the interval he’s so humble.

Celeste Khumalo is a beautiful young lady, her story really inspired me. She shared with everyone how she wanted to study after matric but couldn’t afford it so she enter The Miss South Africa Teen Beauty Pageant KNOWING that she WILL win, so she could get a bursary from Varsity College. This young lady is ambitious and has learned to develop a thick skin. She seems so real.

Wow!! Wayne Stafford’s presentation !! Can someone give him an award? A TV Show Maybe !! I loved it !! Huge Shout Out To Him !

We had another interval. This one was really short !

Then, JJ Schoeman discussed the 3 C’s and importance of your image. I couldn’t really hear what he was saying because he wasn’t articulating but yaah .

A lady from Heads Models gave ladies who want to be in the modeling industry REAL advice. I loved her honesty.

The Last speaker was Bokang.. Bokang Thee BOKANG Montjane… Wow This Lady!! A woman of substance indeed! She raised funds to build a library in her home town, wow so impressed. She’s so passionate about education, I love her for that. She said if you are meant to be Miss South Africa then it will happen. ‘ Destiny can be delayed but not denied’ – Bokang Montjane.

Everyone received notes and a certificate and wonderful ‘Goodie Bag’. At the end of the workshop they also had a luck draw and gave away prizes including a Blackberry Phone- (earphones, pouch, charger, car charger), Cadbury Hampers, Camera, Designer Sunglasses, Appliances, Jewellery, Watches, Cosmetic and Hair product hampers, Shoes, Handbags, Leather Jackets and many more.

I am so luck and blessed to have had an opportunity to attend this event. I’ve learned so much.

I rate this event 5 out of 5 . I cannot wait for the 2013 workshop, I will definitely attend!

The crowing of Miss South Africa 2012 will be on the 9th of December 2012. Check http://www.misssa.co.za for more information.
