Happy Monday! Not really but in this case it is because I get to tell you what made me smile last week and hopefully it gets you smiling too. A lot of it was local which made me smile even harder.
1. This guy, who is apparently the richest man in SA gives half his fortune (like 1.3 Billion) away to the poor
First of all, I didn’t even know there were billionaires in South Africa and second of all how amazing is this guy though? Patrice Motsepe, who founded the “publicly traded mining conglomerate” African Rainbow Minerals donated the money to help address education and health issues within the country. I can think of a few other high profiled people who should also be donating money instead of just taking it.
We don’t have many saints living amongst us anymore so to hear stories like these (and from people living in SA) really does warm my heart. Well-done Mr. Motsepe! I’m sure your donation is going to be put to good use.

(On this website they also have an article called “10 Lessons from the richest Black South African” You should read it when you have time. Very cool)
2. Charlize’s Interview with Nadia Neophytou from Channel 24
It’s only 2 minutes long or something but she makes a lot of reference to SA and how proud she is of it and I’m proud her for doing so. She’s not only an amazing actress but she’s incredibly committed to using her fame in a positive way, especially when it comes to promoting our home country. Hopefully one day I’ll also have the amazing privilege of sitting down and chatting to her one day.
Watch the interview on Channel 24:
3. The Billboard Music Awards – VERY Kwaai!!
It was man! Lol and I’m not into these sorts of things but some of the outfits (Loved Jlo’s dress) and performances. GREAT! Also, can we talk about Taylor Swift winning 8 awards for everything? This girl is on fire right now, like seriously making good music. Love her new music video for Bad Blood as well. Here’s a few snaps from the night.

4. This amazing speech that I can’t believe I only listened to last week for the first time.
And all thanks to my pretty little work sidekick Melissa. She shows me many cool things and I thought that this was pretty effing amazing. If you haven’t listened to it already please make time to. Such powerful words that many in this lifetime have forgotten. In a world that’s so fast, it’s nice to slow down and be reminded about what’s important.
5. Hudson’s Burger Joint’s New 2 for 1 Special
Ok maybe i’m delayed on the intake but a friend of mine sent me this and I was like? Hudson’s has happy hour everyday? Where have a been? To be fair being a newly veggie human I was a bit sad at this. BUT! The good news is I still get to drink their yummy cocktails for half the price and that’s so worth it.
