The Wonderful World of Disney on Ice I Review

Hello everyone! I’m very excited to sit down and finally write this because it means… I finally experienced Disney on Ice! Yup, after three consecutive years of missing it since moving to JHB, I can finally say I was able to watch the spectacular performance courtesy of Showtime Management.

It’s no surprise that I’m a massive Disney Devotee so when I was offered the opportunity to interview one of the performers and attend the opening night show, I jumped at the opportunity. I decided to take along two of my friends, Zuren and Rikashni who love Disney too. We had a total blast!

Interview I Konrad Giering from Disney on Ice

As you’re all well aware, I adore everything to do with Walt Disney… which includes all of the productions that come out from the House of Mousse. I knew I didn’t want to miss the Wonderful World of Disney on Ice when it toured South Africa (like I always do).

I was really interested to find out that there would be a South African couple a part of the production, Yolande and Konrad Giering. The two are the definition of a Disney love story: having met when they were little, fell in love and now ice skate together! Talk about adorable.

Let’s talk Disney on Ice

I'm finally breaking the curse of never being able to attend Disney on Ice. This year we're getting blessed with The Wonderful World of Disney on Ice coming to South Africa and I'm not going to miss it! I thought I'd share a few reasons I'm excited for the show this year as well as all the pricing details below. Frozen: I get emotional watching the ice performances on YouTube because it's so fitting! Frozen is dear to my heart and I'll possibly shed a tear when this part comes on. South African talent: yup, there is a South African couple in the production! Konrad and Yolande Giering are a part of the show and have the cutest story ever! I can't wait to share it with you when I interview them. I'm a Disney Devotee: I literally dedicate all of my time to Disney. From clothing to DVDs and video games and spin-offs, what aspect of Disney...

Queen Latifah and Common heading to South Africa

Queen Latifah and Common are heading to South Africa! Yes, you read right! You may have even heard by now, but you know me, I like to sit down with all the info and give it to you straight. They're heading here for an important reason and I've summarised it all in five quick points! Here's all you need to know about Queen Latifah and Common's trip here! I'm not too certain about interviews yet but if those happen, you can expect I'd like to get you guys involved with some questions! When and where? My hometown, Durban will play host to these two awesome people! They will be heading to SA in mid-July - looks as if Durban will be the place to be (as always) in July. Why? After 15 years, the International AIDS Conference (IAC) returns to South Africa this winter. In commemoration of this fact, and to help accelerate the fight...

Pinkprint Tour Experience & Meeting Nicki Minaj

Wow, is this real life? Am I sitting down to write this? I have to take several moments because I'm unsure. I shot a video for this, but the lighting was less than desirable towards the end. Naturally this was the night before going to China so I had no time to re-shoot. I've decided to shoot it again when I return because I honestly need you all to sit down and watch what I have to say because it's still so surreal. I'm going to do a quick overview of the Nicki Minaj concert. When I return expect a more detailed look. I can't leave without sharing some of my feelings - which, again, don't feel real. I hope you enjoy this. <3 The Pinkprint Concert I went to both Johannesburg shows - 17 and 18 March. For the first show I was Golden Circle - right by the rail! When Onika came...

Nicki Minaj is coming to South Africa

Remember that time I freaked out when Nicki Minaj was heading to SA for a music festival that never happened? Well, forget it. THE QUEEN IS OFFICIALLY COMING TO SOUTH AFRICA - and this time I'm 100% certain the event get cancelled because it's her The Pinkprint Tour! If you know me - or don't - chances are you are quite aware of my insane love for Onika Tanya Maraj. To this day, my love for her still puzzles many but I don't care. From makeup to nail polish to her perfumes, I literally own every piece of merchandise and album imaginable. Nicki is pretty much the only artist I so religiously spend my time and money on and have done since I was in high school back in 2009 (prior to her official 2010 debut). From Mixtape Minaj to worldwide Nicki, I've been through every sage of her career and...

Converse x South Africa

It was such an honour and exciting time to be able to afford some of you awesome guys an opportunity to attend the Converse store openings in Gateway (Durban) and Sandton City (Johannesburg) over the last few weeks. I think it was a great way to kick off December as well as celebrate Converse's official opening of their speciality retail stores. Converse is a brand, as I have said, which I have grown up adoring. It's a brand which really believes in the importance of individual style as well as comfort. I love the many unique ways you can jazz up your chucks and walk around in crazy, cool style!  The stores in both JHB and DBN will offer over 100 different styles for men, women and children will be on offer including Chuck Taylor All Star, Jack Purcell, CONS, Converse by John Varvatos as well as other premium footwear collaborations. Fans...

Summer Holiday Must Dos

Hello Summer holiday! Yup, a lot of us are probably on holiday. Well, technically I'm not because I'll be heading off to China in March but I did take a few days off so I'm keen to try out some new things as well as relax. With tons of times on your hands, do you know how you will be spending the holiday with your friends and family? Groupon offers a myriad of things to do and places to see, whatever your tastes I bet you'll be able to find something fun to get up to! My friends over at Groupon shared with me a list of cool things to check out in JHB. Check it out below! I know I may be trying one or two of the below during my time off. Bungee Jump for One at Bungee Mogale Before the invention of bungee jumping, flying through the air was an experience reserved only...

Converse x Sandton City (GIVEAWAY)

Last week I told you about my introduction to the Converse brand when I still lived in Durban and was younger (then what I am now). The brand really is the epitome of style and comfort. What else will let each and every person be able to showcase their individual style and personality? The answer: very few clothing and shoe brands. Living in Johannesburg has had me be exposed to so many different types of people. From sporty to girly to hip to eccentric, what I noticed with each and every one of them was their common appreciation for one brand: Converse. It's rare to see a brand have such an appeal to such a wide and vast audience. It's always funny to think about how different a band rocker is to a self-titled geek. Oh well, each of them can rock their pair of Converse shoes like no one else...
