Happy Friday to all of my fab subscribers!
What are you getting up to this weekend?
Today’s been such a great Friday for me! I can’t believe it’s the end of July. Seriously, I can’t wrap my head around this! It’s crazy how quickly this year is flying by. I hope all of you had a positive and productive month of July. For me, July was a fantastic month this year! I reached all of the personal targets I set for myself at work, and also ended up getting a freelance job as a writer for one of Joburg’s biggest publications, http://www.joburg.co.za.
So far, I’ve written three features for their women’s blog, Joburg’s Darling (go here to check the blog out). I hope I don’t sound biased, but gosh, Joburg’s Darling is such an awesome blog! It was voted the best blog of 2013 and 2014 by Best of Joburg for a reason. It’s super handy for finding out where’s best for us ladies to eat, drink, shop and so on in Jozi. I’ve really enjoyed writing for them so far and look forward to producing content for them more frequently from August onward. Yay!
Apart from achieving all of my work goals, I’ve had a great month in terms of achieving all my personal goals too. But those are a little too personal to share on a public platform like this 🙂
This weekend, I plan to celebrate – that’s for sure! Tonight I’m going to spend time catching up with a girlfriend at one of my favourite Jozi restaurants, Foundry. I love this trendy little spot situated in Parktown North. They make the most delicious mushroom ravioli! Gosh, my mouth’s watering just thinking of it. They also have a nice, big wine list and are also one of the few restaurants in this city that serves champagne by the glass. Looking forward to enjoying some vino and a good meal at this vibey little restaurant tonight!
Tomorrow I’ll be writing blog content and I also need to do a monthly toiletry shop. I’m looking forward to purchasing some cool new products and updating my make-up kit! I have so many empty MAC make-up containers. Did you know that if you take six empties into any MAC store or counter you’ll get a free lipstick? Yup! It’s a little-known secret. I have 13 or 14 empties now so I’ll need to have a think on which lipsticks to get. Any suggestions? I’m also looking forward to making the most of the last few days of all the huge sales at Sandton City tomorrow and on Sunday!
Sundays in Joburg are for going to organic or farmer’s markets and relaxing. I really love the Fourways Farmer’s Market but I’ve been going there so often lately that I think I’ll go to Market on Main this Sunday! Those are about my only plans for the weekend. I’ll let you know what I ended up doing when I return back to my blog on Monday! 🙂
Until then, I wish you all a super weekend. Be safe, drink lots of wine, eat good food and laugh lots!
Lots of love,
