Preppy Chic - White Skirt





Hollister cardigan | Mr Price blouse | Mr Price skirt | Legit flats | Longchamp bag | Ray Ban sunnies | Michael Kors watch

This weekend was yet again another incredible one.  I'm often taken a back by how lucky I have been the last couple weeks.  For starters, Irina and I met up for the Grazia magazine (South Africa) make up event at Melrose Arch on Thursday for some make up tips and a great mixer.  From there we went to the Marie Claire Trunk Show for their fashion event.  It was so much fun sipping champagne while shopping with the girls.  By the end of the two events we were starving and we went off in search of pizza and ice teas.  It was the most perfect girls night out I could have wished for.

Saturday I completed my first 10km run, the Nike We Run Jozi run.  I like to keep fit so I gym quite regularly but my gym routine generally comprises of cycling because I'm really not a runner.  I had always wanted to do the Jozi night runs, though, and I suppose this year I added it to my bucket list.  I entered le BF and I much to his dismay.  I just need to mention here that he plays professional basketball and works out an average of 4 hours a day... but WOW you should have heard the complaining I had to listen to.  Anyway, we arrived on Saturday evening (accompanied by more complaints in the car ride), stood at the start line, and ran....until the finish line.  At 7km I did get a bit tired but le BF (can you believe the turn of events) turned into my biggest cheerleader.  He kept me going and I couldn't have done it without him.  We made such an excellent time too so I'm quite proud of both of us.  Go team! 

Sunday I had expected a nice relaxed day, perhaps a braai (BBQ) by the pool.  Le BF went to gym (after the run the night before...crazy person) while I met up with some friends for breakfast.  Out of nowhere, le BF got a phone call to say that we had been given RIHANNA tickets for that evening.  Can you believe our luck??  So off we went to Rihanna's Diamond world tour concert last night, which was incredible.  It was such an amazing show and we had so much fun dancing and singing along to all her best songs.   Wow, what a weekend!
