From The ELLE Magazine South Africa Style Reporter Blog Party

This time last week I was getting down, walking around, sweating up a storm at ELLE magazine South Africa's first ever blog party at which they announced the first ever Style Reporter. About a month or so ago I waxed lyrical about the Blackberry sponsored competition here. The event was well put together, if anybody tell you otherwise call them a liar to their face! The tunes, the pretty people, the snacks and the general organisation! 5FM's Poppy Ntshongwana was the MC and Dj Zinhle is said to have been the DJ though I only saw her when the winner was about to be announced. The winner was, of course, Trevor Stuurman of Stuurman Style Diary. These are some of the images  took at the event. The only downside of the event for me is my lack of people skills, I didn't do much talking (read any) to anybody but my sister. My feet also hurt like a mofo after walking to the taxi rank in Carlton but it was good night indeed! Thanks to my oh so kind boss lady for the tickets.

Word N Sound Festival 2012

This is almost a month late, I KNOW! On the sixth of October 2012 I attended the Word N Sound poetry festival; they have monthly sessions ans at the end of the year (this year it was in October) they organise a festival to showcase the top tep open mic acts and crown a winner. I saw Youtube videos from last year's festival in which Nova and Masai Dabula were the top two, after which I vowed to see one show. Lo and behold, they announced that Joshua Bennett would be flying in for this year's festival! I promptly cancelled all life for the 6th and made a date with Striver Josh and other fantastic poets.
