Girls Night Out…

Standard

Last night I won tickets to the Lux Girls Night out at the movies. I invited my friend Megan to join me. With my crazy work times and since Megan got married last year, we haven’t spent much time together.

We have a lot in common and can chat for ages. So it made perfect sense. We arrived early and chatted non stop on our way there.

Soon as we arrived, we popped into the new Filo Frozen Yoghurt shop and tried out their delicious offerings.

Then it was off to get checked in to the event – champagne and orange juice awaited us. We were treated to Lux goodie bags and had a dress up photo booth.

I, the typical poser had to do those pics. It was at this point we both realised we didn’t even know what movie we were going to watch. Typical us chatting – up a storm. We both were unsure about the movie “The Divergent” but were rather surprised and loved it.

The soundtrack is amazing with great eye candy and amazing ink work. Before the movie while sitting there stuffing our faces with popcorn, we recalled dramas and craziness from other movies that we had watched and were hysterical.

I totally loved my evening spent with Megan. It reminded me about friendships and several lessons :

  1. Just because I don’t see/speak to you often doesn’t mean you are special to me.
  2. Friends will always have your back regardless.
  3. Only friends will fight to pay.
  4. Friends are memorykeepers .
  5. Friends care regardless situations.
  6. Laughing and crying at the same time over crazy moments with friends.

Dearest Megan, I thank you for your friendship, care and advice. Strange that we gelled instantly at work with so much common ground.

Though we don’t see each other much I appreciate the time we do spend together.

Here’s to more days out with fun, laughter and crazy stories…

Hugs and Kisses V…

So who are these DESIGNERS , you ask ???
HUNADI is a signature clothing brand for the tasteful and discerning individual. Attention to detail and immaculate finishes are no less than a given flair adding a sense of distinguished elegance.All Hunadi garments are proudly produced in South Africa by a team of highly skilled and passionate tailors. Our flagship store is situated on 25 Newport Road in Parkwood, a serene but central location in the northern suburbs of Johannesburg South Africa. The Spring/Summer collection is called Cloth Girl and is inspired by a setting in Ghana – West Africa, where we also sourced fabric for this collection. A key element of the Hunadi brand is the celebration of the African woman. Hunadi celebrates her strength, resilience and elegance. The lines in this collection are very feminine and timeless. Easy to wear and yet very distinctive. We accentuate the woman’s waist line throughout the collection –an element true to Hunadi in celebrating the woman as she is and not how the world expects her to be. The collection will be launched at the New York Fashion week this September. Hereafter we will have a private viewing and launch with the hunadi customers and the media.

KIYOMI COUTURE takes pleasure in providing you with one-of-a-kind, quality pieces to complete your classic fashion repertoire. Responding to the upwardly mobile, discerning woman’s need for unique fashion items, Kiyomi Couture hand-picks pieces from New York, Hong Kong and Dubai. We have some of this season’s freshest New York looks in store! Flattering jumpsuits for your classy nights on the town, unique day and night dresses and colourful work-to-drinks tops for that perfect transitional outfit. Kiyomi Couture – distinctively you

MORPHE means “to transform outwardly.” Morphé has a strong style signature feel and offers pieces that the wearer can easily incorporate with her existing wardrobe. Layering and interaction between the wearer and the garment is encouraged by pieces often being able to be worn in more than one way. This outward transformation allows the wearer to embrace their own individual tastes and personalities in a distinct ready-to-wear label. My clothing is a lot like dress-up for grown-ups, since it tends to have an edge of playfulness to it. I think that my clothing would attract wearers that feel excited about wearing both colour and texture, clothing that celebrates being alive. My new SS13/14 range showed at MBFWCT13 was very focused on offering the customer more pieces that are updates from previous key pieces such as the kimono dress that forms the DNA of what Morphe stands for : modern and comfortable ready to wear clothing.

This is defo an event all Fashionistas should not miss out.
