Titanic Artifact Exhibition

So without a doubt this must have been one of the most amazing evenings in awhile that I've had, with exams finishing and my leave slowly coming closer this was just a perfect evening. So the thing is my sister and I are major titanic fans, probably like majority of the world population. Yes we have watched the movie a million times could be more, we know the words and in our minds Jack & Rose were real people OK!
So understand my excitement when I got invited to see along with other media personnel the Titanic Artifact Exhibition. 
I'm not gonna give away any details as I really think that the beauty of it is actually seeing it and experiencing it for yourself. The tour had a amazing interactive twist that kind of made you feel as if you were one of the passengers on the Titanic. 
Titanic Exhibition is currently in Cape Town, at the Watershed V&A Waterfront, from the 22nd November 2015 until March 2016. The Artefact Exhibition takes visitors on a journey through the life of Titanic, paying homage to the indomitable force of the human spirit in the face of tragedy.
With a number of historic artefacts that have been recovered from the wreckage on display, none of them hit closer to home then the gold pocket watch that belonged to one of the passengers, Thomas William Solomon Brown, a Cape Town native. Thomas was a successful hotelier who decided to relocate to Seattle where his sister-in-law lived to pursue other business ventures. He was travelling with his family in second class, when tragedy struck. His wife and daughter were rescued, but Thomas died on the sinking ship and his body was never recovered.
“We just want people to come to the exhibition and experience the beauty and emotion these artifacts carry, and we have gone to great lengths to insure that the audience feels like they are in the Titanic, “says Nick Dreyer, COO of Expo RSA, the people responsible for the exhibit.
Tickets are available at and priced for all ages including adults, students, pensioners and children, with special discounts available for groups, school groups and corporates.

Summer Sessions with KFM & 4th Street

So yesterday I attended the much anticipated 2nd annual Summer Sessions. For the past four weeks, KFM and 4th Street Wine has hosted these Summer Sessions each Thursday at various exciting venues around Cape Town. Rob Vember broadcasted live from the events and each venue will feature awesome local entertainment! If last years Summer Session is anything to go by, then this year is sure to be a winner!
I was lucky enough to be able to join in on the last #SummerSession for the year which had the awesome Jimmy Nevis as main performer of the evening! Yes... I know amazing right! I am a huge fan and when I was offered a table front row, I was completely beside myself with excitement.
Jimmy Nevis's performance was absolutely brilliant, I just love his style of performing! Like in his own words "I'm not selfish, I'm having a conversation with you" and that was exactly what he did with singing songs like his famous HeartBoxing & Elephant shoes, to his more recent stuff such as Day Dream and 7764. But I must say that my current favourite song of his is Misscato! It's clear that this 23year old, has his head fixed on tight and on the roll of bringing us awesome music year after year!
After Jimmy Nevis performance I managed to snap a pic with him. He did however comment that while he was performing he saw me signing along to all his songs! Which I was super stoked about. We should really support local talent more often! 
But here is where the awesome part comes, I have been given 3 signed copies of Jimmy Nevis new #TheMasses CD to giveaway! Yay!
Ill be posting the competition to my Social Media platforms, all you would have to do is comment and tell me "What is your favourite Jimmy Nevis song?" and the 3 winners will be randomly selected to receive a copy of this CD.
Big Thank You to KFM & 4th Street Wine for always throwing the best Summer Session events as well as Girl About Town PR for making every event that you host super epic!
 The year hasn't even ended yet & I cannot wait for next year!

Review: Healing Earth

So for the upcoming festive season, I  find that buying a amazing gifts can become quiet a daunting task. But building up to festive days i'm gonna be posting quiet a few products that I think would make amazing gifts for the special people in your life. I have posted before about Healing Earth products, but I do find that with the large amount of products that I get to try all the time for my blog, that Healing Earth just seems to always be amongst my favourites. Healing Earth are the market leaders in holistic African beauty and wellness care and it's quiet clear as to see why that is...
The ranges they stock has such a broad variety of products which I think makes it a great gifting option this holidays. They have the Pinotage Body care range which are amazing for the those luxurious pamper sessions to the Facial care range which allows us to indulge in that extra bit of TLC that we all need. But there a few specific products that have become apart of my skin and beauty routine.
1.Lemon Verbena & Argan Oil Shower Gel:
Lemon verbena and argan oil are used to create an uplifting aromatic scent that revitalises the senses and nourishes and hydrates the skin while providing anti-oxidant protection. Trust me once you have had a good shower using this specific gel, you would understand why its number 1 my list.
Grape Foot Gel:
It contains rosemary and eucalyptus and effectively relaxes tired leg and foot muscles, increases circulation, and assists in detoxification.
Coffee, Cinnamon & Orange Polish:
An indigenous African body polish targeted to increase skin circulation, remove dead skin cells, nourish dry skin, and reduce cellulite.
So besides great products, if you would like to go a step further and provide the special person in your life an amazing spa experience why not try one of the 4 spas that Healing Earth currently operates at
If you would like to get your hands on these great products you can check out the website
Happy Holidays!
