IMG_4498 copy.jpgIMG_4468.jpg

I was invited to the  Boardmans new winter collection this afternoon and I’m obsessed with their new collection!

Your winter home worries will soon be a thing of the past. Homeware specialist, Boardmans, recently launched their winter campaign that’s geared to make your home equally cosy and stylish this winter. The launch, attended by handpicked home décor  enthusiasts,  was  set  to  the  backdrop  of  the  Parktown’s  leafy  suburbs  and  showcased a striking range of Boardmans’ latest products which become available in stores from March. “This season, we want to ensure that our consumers are well-­equipped with the latest must-­haves and are ready to take on winter with our exciting range of assortments. We aim to make sure that Boardmans not only becomes a brand that is synonymous with great  products,  but  also  a  first-­choice  lifestyle  brand  supported  by  an  array  of  world  renowned products at great value,” comments Brand Manager Jillian Kay. Homeware décor maven Heather Boting hosted the launch and the attending home-­ style aficionados were given a personal tour around the private estate while exchanging tips on how to turn cold houses into cosy winter homes. Each room of the house presented a mood for the latest Boardmans trends to look forward to this winter. A few leanings became clear. Earthy and jewel tones constructed the season’s colour palette, while faux fur blankets and fleece throws are a huge trend this season and a definite winter must have. Whether layering them on the bed or using them as an accessory in the lounge, they’re sure to keep the family warm this winter. The sensory experience of winter at home was also a crucial talking point. Nothing says winter more than the aromas of hearty stews and delicious casseroles, which Boardmans’ casserole dishes and kitchenware help the homemaker serve up exquisitely.

The final thought which was commonly shared among the homeware experts was the idea of winter theatre and showcasing hosting skills by beautifying the dinner table and dining area with perfect-­for-­winter accessories. From the bathroom and bedroom to the living room, dining room, kitchen and beyond, Boardmans  is  ready  to  add  some  flair  to  your  home’s  winter  look  with  their  latest  collections that are ready to deliver a space that is stylishly inspired . Come and reinvent the cold season with Boardmans’ spectacular Winter 2017 homeware collection.

BMW 5Series Media Launch

I was invited to the all new BMW 5series media launch in George, Western Cape, on arrival we were treated to a fabulous lunch at the whale viewing deck at Oubaai resort and spa, possibly one of the most breath taking views in South Africa.

And the the fun began, driving through George in the luxurious beast reminded me of BMW’s pay off sheer driving pleasure. Everyone know I’m a convertible kinda girl but this sedan ticks all the right boxes, a little big for me but I can’t fault it on how well it handled the roads, especially the bends! Superior driving pleasure and unsurpassed aerodynamics.

As our trip starts I connect my Bluetooth  twirl my right index finger in small clockwise circles and  my Beyonce- Diva cranks up yaaaaaaasss so fitting! This feature seen on the 7series is now available on the 5series, I’m obsessed with convenience – the gesture recognition system makes playing music so much easier, but not just for music, the gesture controls on the new iDrive interface let you control everything from the navigation and radio to climate controls with hand movements. Basically ladies full time Queening, they say it’s the business athlete but i feel like this car was made for us riiiight?

i test drove the 520d and the grunt-happy 540i, I love how much this one sounds as I accelerate, cutting through the curvy roads of George I’m impressed by the way this handles of. Both cars deliver excellent road holding, satisfying acceleration, and an intuitive sense of weight transfer.

My other absolute fave optional extra is the parking assist, I feel like trips to the mall are about to get easier, you know when there’s one tiiiiiiny parking spot left eeeeeeeek! fear not fashionista’s this beauty will do the work for you

The seventh generation of the BMW 5 Series Sedan will cut a sporty, elegant and stylish figure when it hits the roads in South Africa in February and March 2017. Further enhanced dynamics, an unbeatable line-up of assistance systems, an unmatched degree of connectivity and a new and innovative operating system are the most important new features. The new BMW 5 Series Sedan therefore has all the tools it needs to continue the remarkable success recorded by its predecessors; around 7.9 million BMW 5 Series cars were sold across its first six generations. “The seventh generation of the BMW 5 Series points the way into the future, as we have defined it with our NUMBER ONE > NEXT strategy. We see technological leadership, emotionally rich products and digitalisation as essential factors in achieving success. With the expansion of our model portfolio in the large-vehicle classes, we are satisfying the wishes of many customers. I’m in no doubt that the new BMW 5 Series will set new benchmarks technologically, but also have huge emotional appeal. It remains the epitome of the business sedan,” says Harald Krüger, Chairman of the Board of Management at BMW AG.

Superior driving pleasure and unsurpassed aerodynamics.
Rigorous application of the BMW Efficient Lightweight lightweight design concept, with increased use of aluminum and high-strength steels, reduces the weight of the 5 Series Sedan by up to 100 kilograms from that of its predecessor. The newly designed chassis, a low centre of gravity, BMW’s hallmark even weight distribution and a lightweight body offering exceptional torsional stiffness combine a wonderfully dynamic driving experience with the long-distance comfort for which the BMW 5 Series is renowned. Various chassis options such as Integral Active Steering add further talents to a dynamics-focused overall package designed to ensure the BMW 5 Series once again stands at the top of its class. The drag coefficient of the new, 4,935 millimetre-long BMW 5 Series Sedan (Cd = 0.22 at its most efficient) sets the benchmark in its class.

Intuitive usability and extensive comfort.
With even greater user-friendliness as its goal, the new BMW 5 Series is equipped with the latest-generation iDrive system. In top specification, it displays navigation, telephone and entertainment features, plus vehicle functions, on a high-resolution 10.25-inch screen. The system can be operated using the iDrive Controller, by voice command or gestures, or by touching the display controls directly, as the driver wishes. The large, tile-style panels can be arranged as desired and show the content of the underlying menus in constantly updated form. The latest-generation full-colour BMW Head-Up Display has a projection surface that is 70 per cent larger than before and displays traffic signs, telephone listings, radio stations, music tracks, navigation instructions and warnings from the assistance systems.

Maximising the levels of on-board comfort are extended storage options, greater legroom for rear-seat passengers and comfort seats with massage function, not to mention innovative seat operation using touch sensors and four-zone climate control complete with ionisation and discreet air fragrancing. Special Synergy Thermoacoustic Capsule (SYNTAK) engine encapsulation technology, the acoustic glazing for the windscreen and the acoustic headliner bring about another noticeable reduction in noise levels inside the car. All headlight variants specified for the BMW 5 Series Sedan come as standard with LED technology. Available as an option are Adaptive LED Headlights with variable light distribution including adaptive roundabout lights and BMW Selective Beam anti-dazzle high beam with a range of up to 500 metres.

Fashionably Loud Denim Sizzles at the Black Coffee Block Party!

Retail giant, Edgars, celebrated the ‘cloth of music,’ with its adventurous Edgars Denim Experience. In celebrating denim’s flexibility and knack to be all things to all people, the local fashion retailer went on an unforgettable joy ride, this past weekend, starting in the inner city of Johannesburg with a celebrity shoot and climaxing at the exclusive Edgars Denim Experience Lounge at Black Coffee’s Block Party in Soweto.2cccec03-db46-44eb-bf51-010d04da2ddc.jpeg

The campaign featured actor and presenter Kay Sibiya; actress and presenter Mbali Nkosi; actor Nkuli Tshirumbula; founder and Editor-in-Chief of According to Jerri, Jerri Mokgofe; actress Duma Ntando as well as presenter and model K Naomi – who took part in a scrumptious shoot styled by Jerri Mokgofe and photographer Philly Mohlala, this past Friday, against the cultural heart of Newtown Precinct. The dynamic denim squad then wrapped the day up with a build-up party for the Black Coffee Block Party at the popular Great Dane Bar in Braamfontein.

“The stories people tell with their denim bring them to life! Denim is a canvas for customization that not only celebrates our similarities but also our individuality – and I guess you can say the same about music,” said Letso Phiri, Managing Executive for Brand and Product Marketing at Edgars.033f52d4-f6fe-433d-9495-df3178c008c4.jpg

Our celebrity guests graced the exclusive Edgars Denim Experience VIP Lounge with their fans to share their personal denim stories of character, adventure, weekend fun, hanging in the city and forging of new paths on the Edgars Denim Experience Wall while the nation’s hottest artists took to the Black Coffee Block Party stage – entertaining crowds and etching great denim stories with hit after hit.

“Denim has always been a staple in my wardrobe because I can literally pair it with everything! If you’re going to experiment with fashion, denim is the best thing to play with,” said Nkuli Tshirumbula
“Denim has always and continues to take me on great adventures in fashion, travel, work and life,” concluded Kay Sibiya.

Finding MINI Paris with the MINI Clubman: Melrose Arch Auto

DSC_0826.jpgDSC_0606.jpgDSC_0869 copy.jpgDSC_0620 copy.jpgDSC_0566.jpgDSC_0620b.jpgDSC_0587.jpgDSC_0922.jpg

 

Hey Guys I haven’t blogged in a while so I’m quite excited to share this post with you guys. I got a fabulous MINI Cooper Clubman for the weekend from the fab peeps at Melrose Arch Auto. She’s such a beauty so I took her on a roadtrip to find mini paris in Harties.

The MINI Clubman is stylish grown up yet nimble. IF you’re a MINI fan you’ll definitely love this and won’t be a tad bit disappointed with the Clubman.

We  drove it to Harties and went around tight corners but this little machine stayed planted no matter how hard we pushed it.

The MINI really seems to inspire driver confidence with its agile and sporty demeanor. The Steptronic automatic transmission is smooth and offers quick shifts throughout the power band. I found it perfect for stop-and-go traffic, the last morning I had it.

I’m an Art Director so my fave part is the interior design even though these  features are familiar, from the column-mounted dials to the circular pod crowning the centre stack and housing the large infotainment display and wait for it my fave fave part the ambient light on the infotainment display defos cool!

All in all its a fantastic car I think it makes a great roadtrip car, a little too wide for me personally but pretty nonetheless.

I received some fabulous sneakers from the Rubi by Cotton On team which were perfect for the MINI roadtrip they have have wings how cute?
