Hello 2018!
Diva Giveaway


Hi Divas

I want to wish you a Happy New Year and all things wonderful for 2018. I hope you all had a wonderful festive season and great holiday. I certainly did. I spent most of my time eating up a storm and getting holly jolly on red wine. I definitely picked up a few kilos and need to lose them quickly, LOL. I enjoyed being a tourist in my own city too. I spent my days exploring the Groot Constantia wine farm and learning how wine is made. I also went wine tasting and exploring the beautiful vineyards in the area. On another day my family and I drove up to the iconic Signal Hill where you get the best view of Cape Town's most precious natural monuments. One side you can see the majestic Table Mountain and Lion's Head overlooking the Mother City. On the other side you take in the beautiful sights of the ocean and the Waterfront harbour. It really is a panoramic view that must be experienced. Lastly you cannot have a Cape Town Summer without going to the beach. We have one of the best beaches in the world, so you have to take advantage of it. I enjoyed becoming one with the ocean again. I love swimming and especially swimming in the sea. It is such a stress reliever and cleansing experience for the soul too. I honestly had a wonderful start to 2018. Below are some photos of the places I visited.

Desle, I am so glad you had a great holiday and beginning to the New Year! May it continue doll. I've always wanted to go to a vineyard! The one there looks so pretty! Many of ours are in California (west coast) and I'm on the east coast. LOL So glad you and your family had a great time :D Wishing you the best in 2018.

Happy New Year
Have a blessed and wonderful year

I absolutely enjoyed the festive season as I had the opportunity to spend quality time with my parents and siblings, we went on picnics, had braais, lots of laughter, cooking, baking, chatting, music and dance, movie nights and made beautiful memories to cherish.

I am a working mom in the food industry so i get only two days off during the Festive Season. Christmas and Boxing Day. I spend it with my 7 year old daughter. We went to the Aquarium in the Waterfront, The company Gardens for a little picnic and just played and played. It was the best two days spend with each other ever!! #FestiveFun

I had to work most of the festive season so the moments I got to spend with my son on the beach or just outside in the garden was exceptionally lovely for me :)

Glad you had a great festive season and I hope 2018 is even better.

I loved spending time with my sister and her family. Lots of laughs when we were all together. I loved not having to get up early and having lots of coffee chats with my husband.

What I loved about the Festive Season was seeing my family and spending time with them, I love buying presents for the orphans and the old aged homes, it is the Season of giving, the Season to put joy on other people faces, the Season to truly know the meaning of CHristmas. Twitter: @dawnwally

What a wonderful giveaway! Thank you! :)

I absolutely loved Christmas this year, it was the first where we spent it with just our immediate family, and it was just so magical! We were able to make whatever we wanted and also could nap whenever we needed ;) Most relaxed one yet! @dani_cateley_ :)

Spending time with the people that made me the person I am today. Firstly i travelled to the Eastern Cape to my inlaws then my mother then spent few days with my cousin whom I leaved with in my highschool years. The time i spent with everyone showed how nice is it to belong to a family as they made sure they would an entwrtainment and feasts all the time spent ther. We went to the mountains for a picnic and beach to swim this reminded me when I was growinng up.

I loved the most was going on a speed boat with eldest son. It was our first time on a boat and it was really amazing.
And afterwards we spend the rest of the day eating, shopping and exploring V&A Waterfront with my family.

I loved how for the first time in a while I went out partying with my loved ones, the idea was to go out in an open picnic kind of vibe place and I was able to do that in 3 different places, and let us not talk about the fun that I had. Next time I would like to visit new places and discover other cool partying destinations.

For the first time in a while I decided that I would go out and live a little. So I decided to go to one of the annual picnic festivals around my place with my loved ones and I had the time of my life. I enjoyed it so much that I went there twice and visited another picnic spot and I came back at 5am in the morning on all occasions. So in the next coming years I would like to discover other partying destinations.

I loved getting time to spend time with my family and friends despite getting really ill on Christmas morning with bronchitis. I loved relaxing around the pool and at the beach and enjoyed sharing meals with loved ones.
