Press Stick Spring/Summer Launch

A couple of weeks ago I attended the Press Stick Spring/Summer Launch.

It was held at Blonde restaurant in Gardens and was a great opportunity to see what trends we need to be rocking next season.

I also had the opportunity to meet a fellow Style Scoop writer (and fashion icon) Fashion Jazz. She is just as lovely and stylish as on her blog.

The event was fabulous. Got to meet some great people in the industry, perve over shoes, sip on cocktails and get new sunnies from Sunglass Hut. I've got a pair of new Bvlgaris that I love.

FJ has covered the event on her blog and on Style Scoop. So head on over if you want to see what trends will be big.

Monday's Mantra

This week I get to watch Spain vs Portugal live!
I believe I will heal.
I’m addicted to chocolate milkshake, 90s boybands and Saturdays in Cape Town.
I wish it was Friday so I can watch Eclipse.
I’m jealous of anyone not suffering the effects of a heavy weekend.
Soundtrack/Mantra for the week Scatman, Ski Ba Bop Ba Dop Bop and so on!

Reason #532 I Love My Gays

This weekend I made the rookie mistake of mixing my drinks. The result as well as myself was not pretty. I spent so much time hugging the toilet I was convinced Blue Eyes was gonna tell us to get a room.

Luckily for me, I have Gays.

My gays very nicely came to visit me, bring a me a latte from Vida and listen to me moan whilst giving me lots of hugs. They also watched Sex & The City with me and then we spoke about boys.

The best hangover cure ever.

Things I've Realised...World Cup Edition

Picture from here

World Cups make you tired. I have been out every night for the past two weeks. And I'm not counting a trip to the shops or the takeaway place around the corner as out. I've been out dining, partying and watching games. Almost always creeping in at an ungodly hour and praying my liver is not divorcing me. At the moment, I've taken a couple of days off from the party circuit and my liver is starting to talk to me again. But I'm afraid if we have one more slip-up we're headed for court.

South American men are hawt. It's not just the women who are all exotic and pretty, it's the men too. Not sure what they're drinking over there but it's working. Instead of going for traditional nationalities like Brazil or Argentina, ladies we suggest you look at Chile. Hotties galore and really nice. Also approach Brazilians with care, they are extremely forward. If that's what you're into, go find one now and have a good time.

I'm totally broke. Like January broke. But if possible even worse. All that partying takes its toll on my bank balance. Not to mention I've had to buy lots of memorabilia. All those soccer shirts, flag mirrors and flag leg warmers don't come cheap. Tomorrow is pay day and if you're looking for me, I'll be sleeping outside the ATM.

My hormones are going crazy. Apart from my wallet, these have been the worst hit by the World Cup. Everywhere I look there are hot men. I'm not just talking about the soccer hotties, it's the fans and supporters that are making me blush and wear revealing clothing. In winter. The nice thing is many of them are friendly and are here to have a good time. Some of them aren't as friendly and we have been subjected to varying degrees of dodginess including someone asking if we'd like to know a little German and then pointing at his penis; and someone offering free hugs but then trying to slip in the tongue.

Picture from here.

Yoann Gourcoff almost had me licking the TV. This French hottie was given a straight red in the game against South Africa and on replays some commentators were struggling to see why. Looking at him, I clearly know the reason. His beauty was clearly too distracting for anyone else on the field. After he left, we did go on to win the game. Although France didn't deserve to go through to the next round, Yoann is more than welcome to hang around Skinny Bitches crib.

How To Impress A Skinny Bitch

Awhile ago I wrote about the things certain boys do that result in a flip of the wrist, an unimpressed facial expression and a muttering of “Dude, please!” Now I would like to let boys know what they can do to work their magic on this pair of skinny bitches. Please note if there are any hot foreign boys in your vicinity, please direct them to this blog and the below tips 

To impress a Skinny Bitch in the Making:

Say hello without a cheesy line.

There are very few pickup lines that actually work wonders with girls. If you’re so inclined your line needs to be witty, smart, provocative and delivered correctly. Too cheesy, we will laugh in your face and not feel bad. Too risqué we’ll give you a look like you’re an online sexual predator. Therefore stay away from these lines and try ‘Hello’. You’ll be surprised at its magic. Alternatively if you look like a drummer in a band or have a scar and stubble try ‘Hello, I love you, won’t you tell me your name’. But only if you can pull it off. Heads up, “Feel it, it is here” whilst pointing to your penis will get you slapped.

Buy us a drink.

Everyone loves a free drink, almost free anything really. If we’re at a fancy place, we like cosmopolitans. If we’re at a pub, we like gin and dry lemon. If we’re legless it doesn’t matter what you give us, we’ll think it’s alcohol anyway.

We love to dance.

Therefore some good moves on the floor will score you points. You do not need to be trained – in fact we’d prefer if you weren’t. If you’re better at us we’ll walk away. It’s fickle we know but we do pride ourselves on how well we can boogie. You just need to make some moves. Heads up, avoid coming up behind us and grinding whenever a “sexy” song comes on. If we’re at a club we probably don’t know you that well and would prefer if you stay away from that zone.

Laugh at our jokes.

We try really hard to impress you by being witty and clever so please show us you appreciate it. Most times we are quite funny or knowledgeable (we used to be pub quiz champs) but the more we drink the less sense we make. So laughing or smiling makes us think our charms are working.

Compliment our outfits and hair.

What we look like when we enter a club, bar or pub is probably not what we normally look like when we wake up. Unless it’s around 3 in the morning and we’ve come from another party, than we usually look better. We’ve taken time and effort and sustained burns from a GHD to look decent. Acknowledge it please.

Football Fever

Two days before the World Cup kicks off, South Africa decided to celebrate with a Vuvuzela Moment.

At 12h00 today, people stopped what they were doing and blew their horns, car hooters or just made noise for five minutes.

It was an incredible moment and got everyone even more excited for the World Cup.

Here are some pictures of the moment around South Africa.

Monday's Mantra

This week
is the start of the World Cup bitches!
I believe in the power of Cape Town.
I’m addicted to white wine, coloured tights and Lady Gaga’s Boys Boys Boys.
I wish it was just a little bit warmer.
I’m jealous that I couldn’t get more WC tickets.
Soundtrack/Mantra for the week It’s Raining (hot foreign football-crazy) Men

The picture above is the giant vuvuzela erected in the centre of Cape Town. It's supposed to be going off every time a goal is scored at Cape Town Stadium. Vuvuzela's can be loud and annoying but the only way to beat it is to join in. So make sure you have yours for the World Cup!

Cape Town Ferris Wheel

Cape Town has got it's own London Eye, although our one is called The Wheel of Excellence.

It was erected in what seems like hours. But actually it was only five days and looks fabulous!

It's located near the opening of the V&A Waterfront shopping centre and offers a 20 minute ride with the option of a VIP carriage. It only costs R70 per person and definitely something I'll be doing soon.

Ready for the World Cup

I've got my mirror caps, my supporter's tee and now I'll be rocking this number from Adidas.

Isn't it fabulous? It's fitted, snug and allows me to support my country in style.

Thanks to one of my lovely brothers I was able to get it. It's a little bit more than I would spend on a sports jacket but I suppose that's what big brothers are for.

Are you guys getting excited for the World Cup?

If not, here is one surefire way to get excited. Even if it's only a little bit. If you haven't seen Nike's Write the Future ad, you're missing out. It's for lack of a better phrase, the shizz.
