If I don’t get to blog then you know the work/life struggle is real. However I have found some time to share with you my favourite moments from last week. Had me smiling for days 🙂
The King James Group Annual Potjie Competition
This was fun. Our team theme was “Bollywood meets Belville” which we pulled off rather well (just try to imagine it) We didn’t win (although we probably should have) but the atmosphere in the agency was a good vibe…and everyone got really in to it.
I just used to think that you could put anything into a potjie and it’ll come out fine but everyone added there own flavour based on their theme. Of course I’d expect nothing less from the King James Group.
(Extremely) early morning hikes
Now bearing in mind that I haven’t done this in the longest time so it was quite a shock to my body and particularly my knees. The view made it worth it though (well to the point that I made it too) but I’m not going to lie, for first time hikers to can get tough and for vertigo fearing individuals it can get VERY tough. The hiking path is quite narrow and then the dodging of oncoming hikers as well as the occasional dog walker can get a bit too much but if you can get over all of these elements then the goal at the end of the hike is well worth it. I don’t know what that is yet as I didn’t finish the hike but once I do, I will definitely let you guys know 🙂
I got a new (and cute) traffic buddy 🙂
There are no amount of swear words that can describe my hatred for traffic. And if you get caught in it (especially to and from Cape Town city centre) you know how frustrating life can get. Although when you have someone to share this frustration with, it does make things a whole lot better and bearable. So my traffic buddy is none other than my boyfriend and his done a good job with helping me contain my rage and I help him contain his too lol! I don’t know how long we’ll be traveling together but hopefully it’s a long term deal because I can’t imagine facing my apparent road/traffic rage by myself.
I’m working on something cool and will show you once I’m done
Aaahh you know when you get to to do design things after hours that just makes you smile a lot? This is one of them. This job just gave me the opportunity to embrace my inner girly girl (Like Pinteresy stuff you know) I’ll share everything once I’ve completely finished but for now…here’s a sneak peak 🙂
LEO DICAPRIO FINALLY WON AN OSCAR!
I’m sure you’re excited about this as I am. Leonardo DiCaprio is possibly one of the most influential, most amazing actors of our time and this Oscar win was long overdue like seriously.
I’ve added his Oscar speech below if you haven’t heard it yet. Goosebumps for days 🙂
And that’s it. I always try to keep these moments to 5 or less even though I had a pretty good amount of smiles last week. I tend to get carried away with content sometimes but I always appreciate the read and share.
