Advertising glory days


Look at the kind of stuff they got away with back in the day

I love old school advertising... discrimination and all...

So wrong, so right

Localise This...

A friend and colleague - the beautiful and talented Nkgabiseng - had a little vent moment and drew me a picture which she posted on her blog 

Part of her frustration is how we - specifically the advertising industry, but not exclusively - try to localise already Eurocentric elements. Yes, this is partly true and I keep asking - where is our African identity? What is our essence? Who are we?

Someone said "You can tell the mindset of a nation by the advertising you see" - What then is South Africa saying about itself?

Here's the picture:
"Anyhow here's my point, I drew this for Akona ( ) simply because she's a constant reminder of African authenticity. That's all."
I love it! Thanks Gabilanoir

Mel's annual 25th

I've missed every single one of Melanie's birthday's ever since we met through Smirnoff Experience. Of course, this is not how friend's treat each other, so situation remedied. I could make the *very valid* excuse that we were either not in the same country or same city, but I'll just leave that whole story behind

On Friday, darling Mel had her annual 25th #GrownAndSexy - the last one in a club - and I made my way to Hush to celebrate with my friend.

It was fun, it was entertaining, it was good. I think fun was had by all.
Obviously, because it's Queen Hypress, there were loads of people there - but here are pics with just some of my favourite people. 

Sunshine and Cupcakes

Yesterday I was very down and of course I took to twitter to express this blah mood

A friend, @Wfismer asked what could be done, to which I responded 'send me sunshine and cupcakes....

And he did!

How sweet?!? Made me smile through the darkness

S(he) Be(lie)ve(d)

Love this...

He lied. She believed
Thanks Zwelethu
