Yes, last weekend was my very first ever Loeries experience. Shocker, I know. Wrong place, wrong time for the past decade, really. Here are answers to the FAQs I’ve been asked this week: No, it wasn’t easy. No, we did not party. Yes, we’re still a little sleep-deprived and yes, the Durban humidity was there alright, especially as it was a drizzly Winter’s day when we left Cape Town. But pictures tell the tale much better than words do, so scroll on through some of the highlights…
Thursday, 13 August 2015: Cape Town International to King Shaka, KZN
Friday, 14 August 2015: Sunrise, seminar and slogging at the YFM party
Saturday, 15 August 2015: Waffles, windy weather and ruthless writing
Sunday, 16 August 2015: Working the red carpet
Monday, 17 August 2015: Farewell KZN, hello CT!
There were fun moments, and delicious moments, and moments of pure hilarity. I wouldn’t have made it without the rest of the team – thanks for making Loeries 2015 something to look back on fondly.
August is truly a month of celebrations in our household, what with my dad, mom, and mom-in-law all having a birthday, me having a half-birthday – more on that in next update – and it being our wedding anniversary month. First up was dad’s birthday, luckily over the public holiday long weekend so we had a relaxing time, as you’ll see below…
Friday, 7 August 2015: Bertie doesn’t realise there’s evidence he’s been digging
Saturday, 8 August 2015: News Cafe breakfast
Sunday, 9 August 2015: Fish Hoek roadtrip
Monday, 10 August 2015: Dad’s birthday at Nitida’s Cassia
Wednesday, 12 August 2015: Mum’s pre-birthday dins
That’s all for this post, folks. Next up: All about the Loeries 2015… watch this space! :)
Yes dear reader, the time has come to find out exactly what Husband challenged himself to last weekend, remember I left my last blog post on that note? Well, you’ll see below – just spot the pic that doesn’t look Wintery. Actually that’s not much of a hint as the weather was delightful last weekend!
You’ll also see my slightly different hair, as mentioned last week – it’s a little shorter, layered and a reddy/purple tint in full sun, just looks really dark in your average indoor setting, which matches the Wintery mood, much like I did last year – click here for a reminder of the 2014 version and get scrolling below…
Saturday, 1 August 2015: Sunny beach visits and slurping thick shakes
Sunday, 2 August 2015: Breakfast at Maestro’s on Woodbridge Island, doggy beach walks and Wintery sea dunks
Monday, 3 August 2015: IMC Conference day 1
Tuesday, 4 August 2015: IMC day 2 and Bertie waits and waits
On that note, we break for the next weekend of fun deeds, with the added joy of an extra day this time around, it’s time for the happy dance! Hope you have a wonderful Women’s Day, all! :)
PS: Weekly blog post standards of milkshake, check, sunset, check, beach visit, check! Triple success.
PPS: Next week’s post may be a little delayed as I’ll be on the warmer shores of Durban, covering Loeries Creative Week. Eep.
There was so much love for our recent doggie walkies pics that this past weekend we stored up our energy and went for an even longer trot around the block than last time. Sadly we didn’t get to a single milkshake for me (gasp!) but we did fit in lots of relaxing things, as you’ll see below…
Saturday, 25 July 2015: Panama Jacks’ lunch, doglets wear their winter jerseys
Sunday, 26 July 2015: Long doggie walks, perfect Italian breakfasts
Tuesday, 28 July 2015: Smokey cloud over Woodstock
Thursday, 30 July 2015: Dins at re-opened Ikura Earth Cafe
That’s all, folks! Until next time, where there’s bound to be at least one milkshake and you can see my new hair colour and whether Husband lives up to his promise of taking a dunk in the Wintery sea… :)
