How Often Do You Take Racy Selfies?

The news of Jennifer Lawrence’s nude pics and selfies have just hit my Twitter feed and I feel really bad for her. Actually I don’t, because I don’t quite believe they’re her. I’m not sure why, but I’m just not totally convinced. But it got me thinking and talking to Mr Love. When we first(…)

#100BCTCDays

Have you heard about the #100HappyDays initiative? It’s a social project based on people taking the time to post a picture, quote or statement about something that made them happy that day. There’s no prize or reward other than finding joy in your own life. I thought I’d be a good exercise so I’m giving(…)

What 2013 Taught Me…

What 2013 Taught Me…

10 Things 2013 Taught Me Happy December 31st 2013! Let’s start by NOT saying, ‘Oh my word, where has this year gone?!” I think we’ve covered that a few times in previous years! Let’s say, “Here’s to 2013. It’s been one hell of a year.” 2013 really did give us a run for our money. I’ve(…)

[REVIEW] MCQP 2013

[REVIEW] MCQP 2013

MCQP 2013 has come and gone. MCQP is always a fantastic event. South Africa has one of the most liberal constitutions in the world in terms of sexual orientation and religion. With Madiba recently passing I think we all felt grateful for the opportunities that we’ve been afforded by his vision: including being able to(…)

As you know, I’m been on the mission to self-host WordPress over the last month. Boy! No matter how much they dumb it down, you can guarantee us dummies will still find it incredibly hard to understand! It(…)

MCQP 2012 Cape Town Stadium, 15.12.12

MCQP 2012 Cape Town Stadium, 15.12.12

Last year’s MCQP 2012 was a great night out. I loved the fact that everyone dressed up and had high festival spirits. The “rave” was totally reminiscent of the 90’s, where everyone’s goal is to party all night in peace and mutual respect.  This is exactly what happens at MCQP and 2012 was no exception.(…)

Meaning of Cape Town: New Design Capital 2014.

Meaning of Cape Town: New Design Capital 2014.

After seeing lamp post flags of yellow and yellow and yellow with 2014 being the only legible wording, I eventually learnt that Cape Town was bidding to be the Design Capital of the World, 2014. But what does this mean? Well, moments ago it was announced that we have in fact won the bid and(…)
