5 Rule I Live By

1. I create a to-do list at the end of every day and I follow that to-do list starting first thing the next morning.

2. I sleep at 7pm and wake up at 6am.

3. When someone make me angry, I take a deep breathe and walk away. It’s really not worth it.

4. Speak to my mother everyday.

5. I am guided by these two phrases: a) “Nothing matters.” – By this, I mean that arguing on the internet changes nothing, I can only work towards the major, massive goals that I have set for my life… that I have a vision of helping others, and there is no time to let petty arguments stand in the way. b) “It will all be over soon.” – This serves me in both good times and in bad. In hard times, such as bad days, troubled times, or intense physical effort or discomfort, I know that it will all be over soon. A small amount of suffering now will be forgotten later when I will enjoy the rewards of my work. And in good times, I will remember that life is short, and I must make things count now, and no matter how good things are going I must never let myself become soft and lazy, because I have too much to accomplish in such a short time.

Getting To Know : Kgomotso Christopher

We had a chat with Kgomotso Christopher actress best known for her role as Katlego Sibeko on Isidingo. Not only is she an actress but the glamorous Kgomotso is a MC, voice over artist and academic who has extensive international experience behind the scenes in the Television industry.

Tell me briefly about your childhood. Where did you grow up?
I grew up in Tembisa in the East Rand.

How would you describe your “life journey” up to today, in 5 words?

What has been your greatest achievement so far?
Completing my Masters degree at an Ivy League institution in the USA.

She is the conniving wife to mining magnate Jefferson Sibeko. Viewers have come to know her as the villain with the venomous tongue. She speaks her mind and will do anything to protect the Sibeko empire.

What’s been the most challenging scene for you?
Most of my scenes are quite challenging because Kat is a character with very few simiIar personality traits to myself. I had a fight scene with Ma Agnes… The challenge was to keep serious while shooting a very comedic situation.

How do you use the influence that you have on the youth and the entertainment’s industry to instill positivity and guide those who look up to you?
My work has given me various platforms which I have been able to use to encourage and motivate our youth. I share my life’s journey and the challenges I have had in order to reach my goals and dreams.

What do you want to be remembered for?
I want to be remembered for the loving, supportive and courageous daughter, sister, wife and mother I strive to be everyday.

My Always Platinum Experience

We recently wrote a product review on the new Always Platinum Pads and I received an email on friday from a reader who wanted to share her Always Platinum Experience.

Dear Heiresss

I read your product review on the new always platinum pads, so when I was at Pick n Pay last week I decided to buy and try them out.

The first thing that I noticed was that they are kinda pricey, I bought the small packet – 8 pads and its like R22. But anyway its ALWAYS their products are always good quality.

The pads are packaged in a pink soft material with floral prints. When I opened them I realized they smell really good too. They have this really nice scent and the pads are so soft. Definitely not like your normal pad.

I had a heavy flow and I was at the salon for 2hours when I got back the pad wasn’t even full or heavy. Wow that’s when I decided to contact you and let you know that your review was true.

ALWAYS Platinum Pads are the best pads ever. Will definitely buy them again next month.

Nthabiseng Makakaba

I’m glad people are reading my reviews and actually testing out the products. Have you tested the Always Platinum Pads!? Share your review with us in the comments section.
