John legend – Meet and Greet. The Darkness and Light Tour 

Many times we perceive artists and their ability to do their crafts by how they are portrayed and captured by the media. By their interactions that are filmed. Whilst we can never fault their ability to do their craft, we often hear stories of how entitled some artists can be, once them and their crafts are accepted by the world.

This is not the case with John Legend. He is as humble as he is portrayed to be.

Yesterday, 07th November 2017, a day to remember. A group of friends and I won a competition which comprised a meet and greet with the legend himself and also tickets to his  darkness and Light concert here in Durban South Africa. 

Now I’d love to include every detail about the build – up and anticipation to THE moment, about how we obsessed over how we looked because we wanted it to be perfect, but I will spare you guys those boring details 🤣

All I am going to say is that he is as chilled as a cucumber, he has the most amazing smile, he is an absolutely amazing performer and the love he has for his daughter and his wife and then his music, is just absolutely admirable! 

Me with the legend himself

Now, if that weren’t super amazing, I also got to meet THE Shekhinah! Many of you who know me, know that I’m one of  Her biggest fans 😍🙈. 

Myself, Shekhinah and Amy

I was honestly in awe at how normal and humble both these performers are. They really are just ordinary people doing extra ordinary things and I wish them nothing but the best in all their future endeavors.

But that still wasn’t the highlight of the night. The highlight of the night was that I got to spend the evening with these amazing girls. 

Amy, Laiyah and Myself
We sang, danced. Laughed, almost cried, got wet in the rain and loved it and even shoved our shoes off just to take the moment all in. The #carTALs. And after it all, I cooled off at Cuba and McDonald’s with this Chika and her amazing hubby.

Desiree and I

It was definitely one of THE best nights of my entire being. 
A huge thank you to Big concerts and East coast radio for arranging the meet and greet. A huger thank you to everyone that helped us win , the votes, shares and support has been nothing short of amazing. And the hugest thank you to Amy and Laiyah for the memories of both making our carpool karaoke videos and lastnight, for always keeping it 100 and for the support through-out the years. 

You can visit my Facebook page here to check out more videos building up to the meet and greet and concert, live feeds and more pictures. 

Love ❤️ and 💡 always, from just an ordinary girl

Dear future husband,

Will you support me in all my cray cray endeavors? 


My friends and I made it to the finals of the East Coast Radio’s #meet&greetjohnlegend competition.  I’m just wondering if you would support the random, crazy things I sometimes I do. I hope you would.

Eagerly awaiting you.

Love and light and some cray cray delights, your future wife

Hirsch’s head chef competition 2017

It’s just before 4pm on Friday afternoon and I can get a call from my dad asking if I heard the good news. The only news I was waiting for, was the outcome of a competition that my baby brother was partaking in.

Many of you who know me and my baby bro, know that we are a love-hate relationship personified! 

But they also know that I’m THE biggest cheer leader for anybody, when it comes to celebrating accomplishments, especially those of brothers and sister.

Last week Friday, 27 October 2017, Hirsch’s hosted the first head chef of the year competition. 


The competition was meant to take place earlier in the year, at the East Coast Radio house and garden show however, due to technicalities, the competition was postponed. 

Top culinary schools selected their top students to battle it off for the title. 

My brother was selected from his college together with his colleague Havinsha and was up against some worthy opponents from other culinary schools in Durban.


A tough-to-please panel of judges were ready and waiting to critique their dishes. The judging panel comprised Allan Hirsch, Joani Mitchell and Desmond Davies. 

We’ve always encouraged my brother to be humble and to have fun in all he does, that’s ultimately what it’s about and time after time he takes our advice and makes us proud. 

Yes. He took the title of Hirsch’s head chef of the year for 2017. 


This is such a huge achievement for him and for our family, considering that prior to him becoming a chef, he lacked drive and passion. 

As his older sister I felt obliged to write this piece dedicated to him. To introduce him to the world because he’s slowly earning his place. This kid is darn good at what he does. 

To Fish, boytjie, all I can say is keep doing you. Stay true to who you are. Remain humble and give off your best at all times whilst having the time of your life. Each dish you put out is a true reflection of you. Remember: there will always be somebody more skilled than you, less talented than you but there will never be anybody that is just like you. 

Super proud of you. This industry isn’t ready for you Boy but you show them! 

Proud moment: Chef Fish spoiling his folks

Love and light from an extremely proud older sissy.

Dear future husband,

It’s exam time and again, I’m on the no carb no sugar run (yeah yeah it’s about the third time- no judgement) AND Aunty Suzzie is over for the week, so please bare with me.

My levels of cranky are gonna be escalated. Please take any random outbursts with a pinch of salt and don’t take it personal but take it personal, I know you understand what I mean 😊

Thanking you in advance for your patience.

Xx

Don’t be a hard rock when you really are a 💎. 

Yes, you got it, the legendary Lauryn Hill, in her Doo Wop track. 


I’m always drawn to this phrase or statement or lyric (whatever you wanna call it) lol.

It is so simple yet so profound. 

Often we complicate things way too much. We forget ourselves in situations and in most cases, those same situations need us to apply our truest selves. We just settle and forget our worth.

We feel that we need to conform, more dominant amongst the ladies. We think we need to look, think, act in a certain way to be noticed, or wear, breathe, eat and drink specifics in order to fit in. 

We become numb and cold to all the hate and negativity because that’s easier than just dealing.

… And then comes Lauryn with this powerful reminder. 

My take on those lyrics is that we don’t NEED to DO anything, but be who we are. It is enough. 

I say, wear that “pass-me-down” dress that your gran made so many moons ago for your Mum and so what if it’s paired with a pair of no names from pick n pay or Mr price? 

Be open to critism to better yourself and for no other reason. Learn to accept and respect who you are, in your truest form so that others will learn to respect and accept you as you are.


Own yourself because There is none like you in this world and never just settle. 

Kings and queens, don’t forget your worth! 

It really is okay to be the bow

Love and light always, from just an ordinary girl

Dear future husband 

You need to be prepared to partake in random car pool karaoke sessions. Or “staged” concerts at our home, in our pjs and singing into a hair brush or broom or anything that resembles a mic. 

You need to be the lights, camera and action when we have our cleaning jam sessions. Yes, we will be that couple.

If you’re not gonna join, you must at the very least, be an involved audience. Clap, scream , cheer me on and act like my number 1 groupie. I need to feel the positive energy flowing into my bones.

If you can do this, we will be good to go.

Hands down I will be your number one cheerleader in whatever it is that you do. 

😃

Your crazy future wife
