I love Apple. I fell in love with it when I had worked myself hard enough to be able to afford an iPhone and later a MacBook. I do so many things now that I freelance that working on beautiful machines on the go is very important to me.
My gadgets must be easy, seamless, and most importantly pretty! I must look forward to carrying around my laptop from car to bus to airport. From restaurant to park bench to cafe. Life is just nicer when you’re surrounded my loveliness.
When @MyiStoreSA challenged me to use the new iPad Air 2, I declined. Ok, I’m kidding. I let out a silent “hell yes!” I was only too excited to accept. It will technically be my first iPad (the last one I had was a loan from work) and I’m looking forward to taking advantage of everything it has to offer.
It’s built to take everywhere – and I mean everywhere. You know that place you take your electronics when you know you shouldn’t. Yes, that place too.
The iPad Air 2 is packed with all the things I want in a tablet – it’s as thin my wallet at the end of the month, as powerful as my confidence after a workout and a Touch ID that respects my love of privacy and laziness.
I cannot wait to start. Wish me luck!
PS: If you have any apps that you love that help you get through the day as efficiently as possible, do let me know!
I have something up my sleeve.
I recently worked on something really cool with the folks at 4th Street Wine taking some fun photographs. Where will those photos be used? For a great 3-week competition that starts this coming Friday!
I got to jump around, pose like Beyonce (every woman’s dream) and take sultry (or attempted sultry) close-up shots that had me pouting. I must admit I burst out laughing after each pout – it’s a tough facial pose to hold! I don’t know how people do it!
How do you prepare for a night out besides some 4th Street Wine by your side? By taking cool snaps of yourself getting ready, of course!
All will be revealed on Friday the 7th of November. Get ready! Literally. Dress up and get ready to win!
Have a look at some behind the scenes snaps.
Look at all this 4th Street sultriness. You know you want to try it. 🙂
I enjoyed some 4th Street Lightly Sparkled Wine to cool down after jumping in heels!
4th Street will ask you to recreate the poses I’ve done, and the best interpretations stand a chance of winning a hamper.
You can head over to the 4th Street Wine Facebook page on the 7th of November to start playing.
Ready, set, POSE!
It’s apparently still Women’s Month, and to celebrate I’ve put together a list of the most deliciously vile female movie villains of all time.
In no particular order of evil, my favourite female movie villains:
- Imelda Staunton as Professor Dolores Umbridge and Helena Bonham Carter as Bellatrix LeStrange in Harry Potter series
- Sharon Stone as Catherine Tramell in Basic Instinct
- Meryl Streep as Miranda Priestly in The Devil Wears Prada
- Pam Ferris as Miss Trunchbull in Matilda
- Rachel McAdams as Regina George in Mean Girls
- Betty Lou Gerson as Cruella de Vil in Disney’s One Hundred and one Dalmatians
- Glenn Close as Cruella de Vil in 101 Dalmations
- Daryl Hannah as Elle Driver, Lucy Liu as O-Ren Ishii and Chiaki Kuriyama as Gogo Yubari in Kill Bill
- Eva Green as Artemisia in 300: Rise of An Empire
Rebecca Romijn as Mystique in X-Men series. Jennifer Lawrence tried in the new films, but I’m Team Rebecca forever!
Pat Carroll as Ursula in The Little Mermaid
Who did I leave out? Let me know who your favourites are.
Yours in the morally reprehensible,
