So last week went great. At least I think it did. I was afraid it was gonna be that awkward sitch when a singer puts the mic out to the crowd and it’s crickets all around! Thanks for singing back y’all! I think a few people got to check out what others were doing and get involved. Judging from my friends ‘Wild Wild Country’ sure got a bit more views over the week, and I think people who didn’t know about the ‘Winnie’ doccie certainly went looking for it. Cardi B is still on rotation for me.
So next week I wont be around as I will be out in the karoo for Afrika Burn!! I know! Madness! Hopefully I’ll come back with tons of stories and beautiful pictures to share. I can finally put my DLSR camera to use. Whoop whoop!
Let’s get it POPPIN!
There is only one thing that really mattered this past week and that was Beyonce shutting the entire world down at Coechella. Thank heavens for YouTube live. I screamed, I cried a little and I certainly flipped my non-existent hair while watching this spectacular woman tear it up with a live band, 100+ dancers and all the outfit changes from Balmain! Just wow. Find the link if you missed it! She’s back on this weekend!
I didn’t listen to anything new this past week. Like I said Ms cardio Cardi is still reigning supreme on my Spotify. Obviously post Beychella I was all up in Beyonce’s and Destiny’s Child‘s discography. That 2001 ‘Survivor’ album is the business! Worth a mention is Shekhinah‘s “Suited Synx Remix” featuring Mr. Eazi from Nigeria. It’s sexy, airy and deelish! Oh!! How could I forget the baddest and my personal fave, Onika aka Nicki Minaj released two tracks last week! “Barbie Tingz” and the clear winner “Chun-Li”. I know she’s not the most likable, but give them a go.
I recently bought Ghana Must Go, a novel by Taiye Selasi. I’m probably gonna take that along to the desert when I decide to have some downtime. Lord knows I cannot be all up in people’s faces all day.
Doing (Weekend Tingz):
This weekend is less active than last. I have 2 birthday shindigs on Saturday and that’s it! The rest of it will be spent packing and sorting out my tasty lewks for Afrika Burn! But just so you’re in the loop there is a great opening happening in Braam for the new interior design hub in 99 Juta. The Argentinian Film Fest is at Bioscope this weekend if you’re looking for something different to watch.
Next week Kamers handcrafted market is back in Jozi. I went last year and it was a ton of fun; from handcrafted gin to clothes and accessories. Well worth it. It’s my late friends birthday next week and there will be an event on th 27th at ConHill for Karissa’s Legacy where you can help those in need by donating whatever you can. This will all go to the 100+ orphans that have lost loved ones that she always so graciously gave so much to.
You know what to do. Comment below with anything you’re up to this weekend or got up to this past week.
