My face is on BuzzFeed!

On the 8th of January in the year of 2015, @BuzzFeedFashion tweeted the following (which was then retweeted by @BuzzFeed on Twitter)…

Without thinking that it would actually be used, because come on, BuzzFeed must receive like 500,000 replies to their tweets, I replied.

Here’s why the #CTmeetup rocked!

Yesterday was an awesome day. I slept in late, took a train to Cape Town with Daniel and then had a lovely walk through the town I love the most. We did that in order for me to attend the #CTmeetup.

Fellow bloggers, tweeters and Instagramers all gathered together for a chat, a laugh, some dim sum and just a great time. You can take a look at Cindy Alfino’s blog post about who attended. Thanks so much to Cindy Alfino and Nikki Lincoln for organising the whole shindig and also to I Love My Laundry for accommodating the loud mass of ladies who attended.

NOW FOR SOME PHOTOS!

An evening at the beach

Daniel and I took a drive to the beach for our anniversary last night and despite the wind, it was a great time for photos. Here are a few that I snapped with my phone.

 

Table Mountain

Table Mountain looking gorgeous!

Love

Daniel and I in the sun

Rhino

A random man on the beach built this rhino. Awesome.

I’m off on holiday with Daniel and the parents tomorrow so I’m sure there will be more photos on Monday but for now, have a great weekend!

The Proposal Party

If you didn’t know, Daniel and I have been dating for 6 years now. We started dating when I was a wee 17 years old.

After a long time of hinting requesting a date for when the big question would be asked (because we had agreed it would be happening at some point…), it finally happened!

Just out of the blue, under the guise of a family braai, I walked into my aunt’s house and got a big surprise. I, however, first ignored said surprise because I really wasn’t expecting anything!

Here’s the video evidence. (Yes, there was much shaking and crying – happily)

THE BOARDS I’M READING SAY:

1) Don’t ask any questions… Just read. :)

2) Behind me is a row of people – each one also holding a sheet. All you need to do (for now) is read each one OUT LOUD!

3) 6 years ago

4) I thought you made me the happiest man in the world…

5) 6 years on…

6) And my heart still pounds when I think about how much I love you!

7) And I’ve come to realise

8) There is only one way that I can be happier…

The boards I had to read out loud were a speech that Daniel had written. It was so sweet and romantic, just like the man himself. I couldn’t be happier with the proposal and the entire day.

Engaged!
Engaged!
The ring
The ring – Tanzanite – EXACTLY what I wanted!

More than anything, the huge amount of tweets, Facebook messages and Instagram comments that Danny and I received to congratulate us was amazing! We really felt the love. Thank you, everyone!

And again, to my family and loved ones that made the day so amazing and special – Thank you. You all mean the world to me!

Now for the planning! Warp speed ahead! (But not too fast, weddings are expensive.)
