“The secret is to exfoliate everyday – inside and out”
To alleviate some of the stress I’ve been having with the PaarlApp launch being 2 days away, Ryno told me this morning; “Let’s go to the beach” And so we did…
“Let’s go to the beach”
But as this was already an impulsive outing, I was hungry as soon as we got into the car, so we planned to stop somewhere on the way to get a snack… Oh no… We came across the Blaauwklippen Market. Quite a quaint market compared to the glorious Root44, but a much more enjoyable experience in my opinion. Where we had Pizza-in-a-Cone for the first time and we weren’t disappointed!
We eventually ended up at the beach – Gordon’s Bay specifically, for no reason..
And then the impulse…. JC le Roux completely-unplanned-but-absolutely-fabulous MCC tasting! What an experience. It cannot be put into words. Ryno had the deluxe pairing which involves pairing each of the 5 MCC’s with a different bite-size snack from maccarons to fudge. I opted for a less risky option (if at all); the Nougat Pairing where 5 different flavours of nougat are paired with 5 different MCC’s. For those who don’t know; MCC stands for Methodè Cap Classique, which is basically the South African version of Champagne – same process, different country.
We enjoyed the experience, ambience and venue so much that we made a booking for the day after Christmas with our Christmas guests..
At this stage we’re so extremely excited and nervous for the PaarlApp launch next Tuesday that I really can’t contain myself.
I’ve started practising my speech, which will be my first formal addressing of a group of people since school.
Stephan arrived from Pretoria today as he’ll be part of the cast in a show at the Theatre on the Bay in Camps Bay.
He decided to make a stop in Paarl before finishing his 13 hr journey to Cape Town. Friends are blessings!
I took a look back on the past 5 years today and have loads to thank God for, but I also have one question. In the past 5 years I’ve travelled to at least 5 countries. I’ve allowed at least 5 people to impact my life in a positive way. God gave me someone to love and we’ve unwrapped at least 5 new pieces of furniture (20 to be more realistic). We’ve also slept in at least 5 different hotels, experienced at least 5 different towns and indulged in at least 5 different restaurants. I’ve completed at least 5 training courses, university modules or life coaching sessions. I met at least 5 people who are simply extraordinary. I’ve had at least 5 jobs, each one better than the previous. The list goes on into infinity. I am extremely thankful and 5 years from now I will have had my 26th birthday. But why is it that so many 26 year old people have done absolutely nothing with their lives?!?!
