The Weekend Wrap

This weekend was perfect for catching up on some much needed chillin’ and working on my tan.

On Saturday, I spent some time in the sun and watched the game. My Sharks vs the Cheetahs. Well, what a frustrating game! After Lambie missed the poles for the second time – Michalak also missed them in between – making it three missed kicks in a row, I eventually gave up my position in front of the TV to carry on enjoying the sunshine on a gorgeous summer’s day.

It was scorching hot out and I’m finally starting to look like a Durbanite! Lots of Appletiser on hand to keep cool!

Sunday was another BEA-utiful Durban day, spent out by the pool. In the afternoon we decided to take a drive down to the beachfront to check out Moyo on Ushaka Pier. A friend told me about it and how “you just have to go there for sundowner’s” and this Sunday seemed like the perfect afternoon to do just that.

The position is perfect! It’s literally on the edge of the pier; a double story building with the most fabulous views of Durban’s buzzing beach front and the show stopping Moses Mabhida Spaceship Stadium.

With a full bar in the middle of the building, they serve almost every cocktail under the sun and some light snacks. Don’t go there expecting award winning service though. However, the cocktails and giant Strawberry Daiquiri’s are totally worth it.

Feeling a little brave and more confident that I did’nt look like a ghost, I decided to wear my knee-high gladiator sandals I bought from Luella. You’d swear I had two crocodiles wrapped around my legs the way people were staring at my shoes.

Did they love them? Naaah, they probably hate them, I could almost hear them thinking “WTF are those?”. Either way, I realise these are not everyone’s cup of tea, but I love them. They don’t go with everything; so far I’ve only worn them with a denim skirt, and on Sunday they looked uber cool with my white, easy breasy, boho summer dress and wooden bangles.

I had just painted my nails with OPI’s Hot & Spicy Polish which added a nice punch of colour to my all white/ tan look. I just have to say, I love OPI nail polish. Two coats and it’s done and takes less than a minute to dry.

How was your weekend? What did you get up to?
