About Me

My photo
Last year I turned the big 3.0 and got married - I thought that was my milestone year. As it turns out, 2009 quickly overshadowed 2008 when my husband and I found out we were pregnant. I'm going to be experiencing everything for the first time as a woman and an expectant mother which is why I'm calling this my year of firsts. I'm senior editor for Marie Claire South Africa.

The Races

Just as we had a picture perfect moment, Maya chunders! We took her to the races - The Summer Cup - at Turffontein on Saturday but she was not really happy. And truthfully I wasn't really comfortable either. I had misjudged the amount of breast my dress would show... and spent most of the time adjusting and feeling self conscious. Cleavage is not really my favourite thing. A hint, a suggestion yes, but not half the breast exposed for all to see. But besides my levels of discomfort, the music was too loud for my poor sausage and after gobbling down half my meal, Hein and I made tracks.

Thanks Ivan and Milly for the invite!
