Hey guys! I’m back – took a bit of a break…. again. I’ve been vegetating watching Disney shows and studying. Yup, I watch Disney shows to relax – I’m so awesome. I love Disney <3
Okay well, I recently got informed that Sofia the First will be premiering in South Africa on Saturday! I’m so excited. This show is adorable and the main character is voiced by one of my fave young Hollywood actresses, Ariel Winter.
Below is the official press release – make sure to check it out.. I can’t wait to watch it! To honor Ariel’s role in the show, I’ll be doing a special post about her on Monday.
Disney will introduce its first little girl princess with the premiere of Sofia the First, an enchanting animated Disney Junior series for the whole family, at 09:00 on Saturday, 11 May.
While Disney princess fairytales have been enchanting audiences for more than 70 years, this is the first time a series has centered on a princess as a little girl. The stories are designed to communicate positive messages and life lessons that are applicable to preschool-aged children. The series is a production of Disney Television Animation.
Sofia the First stories are set in the storybook world of young Sofia who starts out life as a regular girl. But when her mum marries the king, she is whisked off to a glamorous, but sometimes confusing, castle world of royalty, pomp and new step-siblings, Amber and James. Sofia the First will include appearances by Fauna, Flora and Merryweather (fairies seen in Disney’s classic Sleeping Beauty) as the headmistresses of Royal Prep, the academy that Sofia, along with other princes and princesses, attends. Special event appearances will be made by classic characters including Cinderella and other Disney Princesses.
Nancy Kanter, Senior Vice President, Original Programming and General Manager, Disney Junior Worldwide, said, “In Sofia, we have a ‘peer to peer princess,’ a relatable girl experiencing the same social issues as our young viewers – learning how to fit in, making new friends, conquering new skills and building sibling relationships.” She continued, “Although Sofia will have plenty of pretty dresses and sparkly shoes, our stories will show Sofia, and our viewers, that what makes a real princess is what’s inside, not what’s outside. That the inner character of kindness, generosity, loyalty, honesty and grace make you special, not the dress you wear.”
Starring as the voice of Sofia is Ariel Winter (Modern Family); Sara Ramirez (Grey’s Anatomy) is Queen Miranda; Wayne Brady (Let’s Make A Deal) is Clover; Tim Gunn (Project Runway) is Baileywick; Darcy Rose Byrnes (Desperate Housewives) is Amber; Zach Callison (Land of the Lost) is James; Travis Willingham (Ultimate Spider-Man) is King Roland II; Jess Harnell (Doc McStuffins) is Cedric; Ashley Eckstein (Star Wars: The Clone Wars) is Mia the Bluebird and Meghan Strange (Special Agent Oso) is Robin. Disney Legend Russi Taylor (Minnie Mouse), Barbara Dirickson and Tress MacNeille (Daisy Duck), bring Fauna, Flora and Merryweather, respectively, to life. Jennifer Hale provides the voice of Cinderella

PS: this totally reminds me of my younger days so I have like a sentimental attachment to this :p
To start: I really like the Mountain Dew soft drink. YUM.
This April, some of South Africa’s finest tertiary education institutes will play host to the Dew Tour Bootcamp (courtesy of Mountain Dew). This electrifying and adrenaline pumping series of action sports events will showcase some of the country’s finest skate and BMX athletes. The tour will take place from April 23rd to May 8th 2013.
The Dew Tour Bootcamp, which is a first in South Africa, will see an impressive collection of professional action sport athletes travelling around the country, to entertain and educate fans looking to get into action sports. The Dew Tour Bootcamp will visit universities including the University of Pretoria, Varsity College Sandton, Cape Peninsula University of Technology, University of Cape Town and the University of KwaZulu-Natal, as well as the Durban Beachfront Skate Park.
With that said, I’m really excited to – hopefully – attend the event at the Durban beachfront! I don’t go to university and that day the guys are in Durban, I’ll be super busy at work. Boo hoo.
Oooookay, so the exciting news: I have two Mountain Dew hampers to give away to two Durban readers! The hamper has a value of R500 each and includes some Mountain Dew to beat your thirst! Woohoo! Who doesn’t want cool Mountain Dew things!? :D
Entering is simple: just tweet me about wanting to win or comment on a wall post/write on my wall of my Facebook page. Don’t forget to include the hashtag #DoTheDewSA and tweet@Mountain_DewSA. I’ll announce the winner on Friday.
