6 things i learnt this weekend


1. meeting new people in a new city helps that "feel at home" feeling

2. grey is a great colour to mix with any other colour

3. random last minute plans for drinks and pizza is so much fun - especially when the area you are sitting in is taken over by business men and paid for entertainment (in a classy bar in Sandton!)

4. road trips are fun - even if its just an hour to the Vaal Dam - especially chilling on the boat and soaking up the sun

5. love is not always enough - it sometimes takes a bit more to make things work - things like -- compromise, forgiveness, gentleness and a bit of spoiling which always goes a long way

6. good party music is sometimes all it takes to put a smile on my face - no matter how grumpy i can get

Nice post, I like the one about love. So true. relationships are hard work. I was reminded that this weekend. But worth the mammoth effort though.

I have a strange obsession with grey. I always team it with yellow which is one of my favourite colours!

Road trips are just awesome!

You should do pizza and beer at the Jolly in Parkhurst. If you go at around 6pm on a Sunday the view is stunning and they have a half price special!

Thanks BBenny! i love pastel green or light blue with grey - i'll try yellow sounds super hot!

i've been the Jolly once - was loads of fun and very random! :) thanks for the suggestion - keep 'em coming!
