Channel O Top 20 of 2011- Promo

Yep, that's my voice!!
I love doing voice overs and I've been recording a lot of voices for Channel O.
Recording is always fun and trust me it's even better when you hear it on TV!

Counting my blessings

So .. like.. ya hey.. I'm 24!!!!!

And this is exactly how the whole day was... easy and very simple.
It's always the smallest and meaningful things that are heart-felt... well, when it comes to me anyway!
I must say, I do feel a little grown up.
I'm not even joking... I just have this different outlook on life.
Life has always been full of possibilities and this time I feel like I'm actually ready to go out there and explore those endless possibilities.
It's a really exciting time!

Birthdays are in theory at least, happy occasions where we celebrate rights of passage that can now befall us. At 13 it meant that I could finally be called a teenager and blame everything on my adolescent stage ; at 16 it meant that I could get my I.D and learners license, at 18 it meant that I was legal to drink alcohol and start driving on my own, 21… meant I was officially legal to sign my own marriage papers.. hehehe...(I can't imagine being married at 21, but hey different strokes right?
Now, 24... Old enough to know better and still young enough to find my feet.
This of course also means that I''m a year closer to paying lower car insurance premiums! woo hoo to that!

World... I'm 24 and oh so ready for you!

Loving me

Turning 24

27 December 2011 - 2 days before my 24th birthday.
Twenty freaken four?? I know right!! It's major! Huge! Gee whiz, what a number. It's so close to the big 25 which is 5 years from 30! *Screams*

Ok, I'm being a little dramatic, it's just a number right? No, not really, not to me anyway.
Thing is, when I set my goals I usually set a time-frame for which to achieve them. I always get things done when I have a deadline and my age is what I use to set that deadline.
Where did I think I would be at 24?
I've always wanted to be an actress, to be in a big local production, to star in a big movie!! I thought at 24 I'd have the most amazing girlfriends any girl could ever ask for. I thought I would have at least done some travelling...gone bungee jumping...I thought I would've met former President Nelson Mandela and maybe Oprah (I'd love to interview her one day ... just putting it out there.. go on and do your thing Universe.)
At 24, I thought I'd be in a stable relationship with a guy that my family absolutely loves.
I thought I would have moved out of home, I'd be in my own pozzie and free to leave my bed undone whenever I wanted to.
I thought I'd be much closer to God with a soaring spiritual life. I thought I'd have a different dress sense, not sure what it would be , I just thought it would be 'different'...

So I'm turning 24 in 2 days, where exactly am I at this point in life?

I'm not the actress I said I would be, but I am a Content Producer for an amazing show called Sistahood on It's like a baby that I have grown attached to...I feed it with all my ideas...some crazy, some really serious, some give me that "I can't believe I just thought of that idea" feeling, some are seriously plain boring - yes I get that too, but with an incredible team on my side, the seriously plain boring ones get a major tweak and become a dream of ideas.
It helps that I'm also one of the Presenters on the show because then I also get an opportunity to breathe my ideas to life.
I do radio on weekends on one of the most exciting stations to be a part of. YFM! I'm super grateful to be on such a huge platform, ok this one needs its own blog post.
So even though I'm not the actress I said I'd be, I'm still doing things that bring so much joy in my life and I'm very happy. I love being on radio and TV and I love producing for TV. The actress in me still lives though and she'll be unleashed very soon! Now this is the deadline I have to meet before 25.

The girlfriends? Oh, they're there and they are characters of note! I feel really lucky to have my friends, I know they have my back so yes, they're the dream friends I thought I'd have at 24. I'll dedicate one blog post to all of them soon.

The travelling? Oh, I've done a bit of it... I'm in Amsterdam as I type this! It's my 3rd time here so it's become a second home. In August, I also saw some of the most beautiful places in the world...Paris, Barcelona and the South of France...
I plan to visit Dubai and Italy in the very near future...I need to start saving again. Travelling is an expensive addiction, but one that is so fulfilling.

The bungee jumping? Aint. Gonna. Happen. Period! I'm just not as daring as I thought I would be at 24. Call me boring, call me whatever you want, call me a coward even... I will gladly and happily accept any title.. I just won't go bungee jumping.

Oprah and Nelson Mandela? Universe, I already asked you to work your magic! Now get to work!

Relationship? You just couldn't wait for the relationship part hey? Well, errmm...let's just call it 'tricky' for now. I just know for a fact that the last guy I take home will be adored by my family...I think this one also deserves a blog post on its own, I'm really not being cagey.. it really is tricky!

You'll also be happy to know that I HAVE MOVED OUT OF HOME! Yes I have and as much as I have the freedom to leave my bed undone, I just don't want to do that, it's just not me! I've been learning so many things about myself ever since I've moved and I'm continuing to learn and grow as I go. It's an amazing feeling to be on my own. I do miss my dad but I go home very often, sometimes to turn it into my own grocery store. Not a 24-year-old-thing to do hey? He doesn't seem to mind though.

I'm also working really hard to develop a much stronger relationship with God, I need to get closer to Him. I'm working on this... God has done some amazing things in my life. I think this is the most important relationship you can ever have, it just puts EVERYTHING into perspective. I will fill you in on my progress.

The dress sense? It has changed...only slightly. It's so much better though. I love dressing my body. I think I'll have a 'look of the month or week' section on here. It would definitely force me to make a huge effort at least once a week or month.. hehehe, it'll be fun.

So I'll be 24 in 2 days...
Typing this blog post has made me realise that I am not where I was a year ago and for this I am eternally grateful.
So often we look at the things we don't have and and complain at every chance we get. Take a moment and think about the things you DO have and how far you've come.
You are not where you were a year ago!

Count your blessings
Soon to be 24 - Pearl

All I want for Christmas

I've always had an interest in the art of photography and I want to take up a new hobby, so why not do it in style? You just can’t disagree with this. There’s no better way of documenting your memories than by having a massive directory of photos.Just how amazing is this little baby?

My year will be made if I get this for Christmas or even my birthday coming up in 9 days! Now if I get this camera, it'll also mean that I get to take beautiful pics for this blog so it's a win-win situation or you and I...

I'll keep you updated!
Thanking my lucky stars in advance

Winter Wonderland with my sister

It's the 20th of December 2011. I landed in Amsterdam yesterday morning with my little sister. I celebrated Christmas, my birthday and New Years here last year and I'm going to do the same now, it's all just so exciting again especially because I'm sharing the experience with my sister. It was her first time in an airplane and it warmed my heart to see her experiencing something new. It's quite cold, around 5 degrees today and we can't wait for the snow to start falling...white Christmas hello!!! The city is so alive and very beautiful with the Christmas lights and decorations everywhere. It's gonna be an amazing 15 days!

Happy holidays!!
Be safe

Salif Keita - "Africa"

This song always reminds me of gatherings with my family, all of them.
A gathering would never go by without this song playing on repeat.
It brings back a lot of childhood memories... very beautiful memories!

I have so many songs that remind me of certain things, people, places - good and bad.
This is one of the very good ones, enjoy it!

I LOVE AFRICA and I'm proud to be an African!

The ALL WHITE Red Pepper Xmas party

So besides being a TV and Radio presenter, I also work as a Content Producer for Sistahood at Red Pepper Pictures - amazing job this is! We always have our annual Christmas party and of course I look forward to it every single year. Not because of the food - well that's one of the reasons (lol), but also because our parties are always themed! I am crazy about themed parties!! This just gives me a chance to dress up, have fun with the outfits and I also look forward to seeing what everyone else will be wearing.

We had a Cowboy/Cowgirl theme 2 years ago and that was pretty exciting. I wish I had pics but I can't find them anywhere... ok, I honestly haven't really looked.

But let's focus on this year. The theme was 'all white' and yes even thought I love wearing black so much, I was excited to be wearing white... ALL WHITE!
See? Themed parties also get you out of your comfort zone, you wear clothes you wouldn't normally wear. So off I went and raided my wardrobe and guess what I found? A long white skirt and a white top! :)

Here are some of the pics that we took on the day. I won't explain what's happening on each and every one of them. A picture is worth a thousand words remember?

I had so much fun!!
We were there, did what we needed to do and left!
Now all we have are beautiful memories!!
Til next year! :)

Lots of love

Wednesday, November 9, 2011


So often people ask me why I wear a lot of black clothes. It's actually become a very annoying question because I feel the need to explain myself all the time, like I'm doing something wrong or like they have a problem with me loving the colour.
For the last time, this is why.

I really have no idea where my obsession with this colour began and it honestly is just that - an obsession!
I am drawn to black clothing and I love the looks and styles I'm able to create with this colour.
Besides the slimming factor (that I think every woman loves), I just feel really amazing in black and that's what matters to me. I do obviously wear other colours and with colour blocking in season, you're sure to catch me looking like a smarties box, but you can never go wrong with black ... It's very classy! Even when I'm not full on black, I at least have to have one black item on. When I do sometimes go all black, I'd try a piece of colourful accesory or shoes.
Geez, is this me trying to explain myself? I really shouldn't be explaining myself.
And I don't think anyone should have to explain their style or preference too. If people don't get it, they don't.. Thing is, they don't have to get it.

It's your style after all...

Love yourself

Destiny's Child - Happy Face

This song is an instant pick-me-up for me! I listen to it a lot before I start my day and sometimes when it's about to end. It helps when you sing along to it as well.
So I have copied the lyrics below, just for you!!
It's off Destiny Child's Survivor album. So so so good!!

Ah ah-ah,
Ah ah-ah-ah,
I woke up this morning,
The sunshine was shining
I put on my happy face
I'm living, I'm able,
I'm breathing, I'm grateful
To put on my happy face

Woke up and realized
This world's not
So bad after all
Looked at it through
A child's eyes, and
I saw these beautiful
Things that you
Never think about
Like the ocean, moonlight,
Stars and clouds
It's amazing how
We don't appreciate
Our blessings
There's plenty of people
Who don't like me
But there's ten times more
Who love me and
I love myself
Sometimes, it gets tough,
It gets tough
But I can't give up,
Can't give up
Just take a deep breath,
Close my eyes
Feel the love and
Give a smile

I woke up this morning,
The sunshine was shining
I put on my happy face
I'm living, I'm able,
I'm breathing, I'm grateful
To put on my happy face

I woke up this morning,
The sunshine was shining
I put on my happy face
I'm living, I'm able,
I'm breathing, I'm grateful
To put on my happy face

It's me,
I just wanna be happy
Uh, just be happy, uh,
Just be happy
Today is the day
I am willing to say
I will put all the
Past behind me,
No more enemies
Ready 'cause
(Ready 'cause)
I'm living in this world
(Lving in this world)
I wanna make a change
(Wanna make a change)
Gonna make a change
(Gonna make a change)
Put on my happy face

I woke up this morning,
The sunshine was shining
I put on my happy face
I'm living, I'm able,
I'm breathing, I'm grateful
To put on my happy face

I woke up this morning,
The sunshine was shining
I put on my happy face
I'm living, I'm able,
I'm breathing, I'm grateful
To put on my happy face

Everything's gonna be all right,
Everything's gonna be okay
Everything's gonna be all right,
Everything's gonna be okay
Gonna be all right,
Everything's gonna be all right
Everything's gonna be all right,
Everything's gonna be okay
Gonna be all right,
Everything's gonna be all right
Everything's gonna be all right,
Everything's gonna be okay
Gonna be all right,
Everything's gonna be all right
Everything's gonna be all right,
Everything's gonna be okay

I woke up this morning,
The sunshine was shining
I put on my happy face
I'm living, I'm able,
I'm breathing, I'm grateful
To put on my happy face

I woke up this morning,
The sunshine was shining
I put on my happy face
I'm living, I'm able,
I'm breathing, I'm grateful
To put on my happy face

I woke up this morning
With a happy face
I'm flying, I'm flying,
I'm flying, I'm flying
I'm flying, I'm flying,
I'm flying, I'm flying
I'm flying, I'm flying,
I'm flying, I'm flying
Flying, flying

Happy singing!!!

Love Pearl

Quote of the DAY

I've just been so busy that's it's become a little hard to get writing everyday and I guess I just don't feel inspired ...
So if I don't write anything on the blog,I'll make it a point to upload a quote that sums up exactly how I'm feeling at that point in time. Deal? Thanks! You never say no to anything, do you? hahha.. I'm not complaining.
So here's my quote of the day:

"Think about any attachments that are depleting
your emotional reserves. Consider letting them go."
~Oprah Winfrey~

Take care

The Best Day Of My Life

One of my aunts sent this to me via email and I absolutely loved it,it had to be shared... It's all about gratitude , being happy and counting your blessings. We are all truly blessed in many ways! Enjoy!!

Today, when I awoke, I suddenly realized that this is the best day of my life, ever.
There were times when I wondered if I would make it to today; but I did!
And because I did I'm going to celebrate!

Today, I'm going to celebrate what an unbelievable life I have had so far:
the accomplishments, the many blessings, and, yes, even the hardships
because they have served to make me stronger
and strengthened my faith In God.

I will go through this day with my head held high and a happy heart.
I will marvel at God's seemingly simple gifts:
the morning dew,
the sun, the clouds, the trees, the flowers, the birds.

No, none of these miraculous creations will escape my notice today.
Today, I will share my excitement for life with other people.
I'll make someone smile.
I'll go out of my way to perform an unexpected act of kindness for someone I
don't even know. Today, I'll give a sincere compliment to someone who seems
Today is the day I quit worrying about what I don't have and start being
grateful for all the wonderful things God has already given me. I'll
remember that to worry is just a waste of time because my faith in God and
his Divine Plan ensures everything will be just fine.

And tonight, before I go to bed, I'll go outside and raise my eyes to the
heavens. I will stand in awe at the beauty of the stars and the moon, and I
will praise God for these magnificent treasures.
As the day ends and I lay my head down on my pillow,
I will thank the Almighty for the best day of my life.
And I will sleep the sleep of a contented child,
excited with expectation because
I know tomorrow is going to be the best day of my life, ever!

I'm Back Buddy!

So I've been really BAD!! :(
I haven't posted anything in over a month! Gosh... I feel terrible.
Reason is that I was away on holiday, an amazing holiday it was!!! The stuff I got up to... ah man, I wish I could re-live every single moment.
And of course I'll post some stuff about it.
This is just me apologising...Friends again?

No make-up! No air brushing! WHAT??

So I got an e-mail from HEAT magazine to do a photo shoot with them!! And you know by now that I love photo shoots so how could I say no?
I did think about saying no to this one though, not because I had a change of heart and decided that I don't like photo shoots anymore, but because this is a different shoot.

This is what the e-mail said :

"Okay, so we are doing a beauty shoot – showing off our South African celebrities in all their natural beauty! I have attached some references for you to have a look at. We want to do the same thing with our locals. The shoot would be in the same type of clothing – and without any airbrushing. "

Yep, this is part of the e-mail that I received...
Yep, SA celebs in all their natural beauty! This means NO MAKE-UP!! I've never had to do a shoot with no make-up on, but I'm not worried about this because I'm comfortable with or without make-up...I have great skin that hardly has any break-outs, thank goodness!

I saw the reference pictures and I got a little uncomfortable because I would have to wear underwear / the shortest shorts and a vest...You'd think it was ok since it's not a nude shoot right?

Thing is, I love the shape of my body! This hasn't always been the case, but now I think I have amazing curves in all the right places...I especially love my upper body, but I've always had issues with my thighs.

Did you see that part about NO AIR BRUSHING?? This means all my flaws will be visible for nation to see!!

But guess what? I'm doing it!! I SAID YES!!
And the reason I said yes is because people in the public eye are usually viewed as perfect beings, no mistakes, no flaws, just perfection! I'm showing the people who support my work that I am not perfect and I'm ok with not being perfect!
I have cellulites too! So what??
I don't have the "perfect" legs.. So what?
My flaws make me unique.
They make me who I am. So how can I not love and celebrate who I am?

In the e-mail , they also mentioned :
"Obviously we want you to be as comfortable as possible, so we’ll show you the photos as they are taken and only go to print with the ones you are happy with."

This means I have full control of what I want to be published and if I decide to chicken out, I'm allowed to. But I will not do that!
This feature is meant to show the HEAT magazine readers that even the most gorgeous celebrities have a few body issues – it’s a powerful women’s feature to make all women accept and be happy with what they've got.

I'm all about the empowerment of young women, so this is another step that I am taking to help women love and accept themselves!

The shoot is on the 18th of August 2011 and I'm actually looking forward to it!
No make-up, no air brushing! Just me.. the real me.....

Love your body, it's the only one you have

The coldest day in JHB

The coldest day in Johannesburg freaked me out!
With snow in the Eastern cape, the cold front meant business!!
This is what I looked like when I went to the office that day!! I even had to pull out my Uggs which I bought and wore in Amsterdam!
I never thought I'd wear them in Jo'burg, so yes it was Amsterdam cold!
And I was super warm and quite cute too, even if I have to say so myself.. heheheehe.


How awesome is this snood??
I can't get enough of it! It's super warm and very trendy!
I usually wear it like this and as a normal scarf around my neck sometimes.
I wanna buy more... in every colour!

We had a great time shooting the September Sistahood episodes and these are some of the wonderful people that joined us.

This is Warrick Stock also known as DJ Warras.
He's a radio and club DJ. Really fun guy!And he's got a gorgeous son!

This is Sharna and Louise. They own an amazing boutique in Melville, MSC Boutique. I think it's so cute that MSC stands for My Sister's Closet boutique.
And their outfits are to die for!

We had a MSC boutique fashion show as well. These are what some of the clothes look like. To die for right? I love the red dress!

Bonnie Henna also joined us for a chat! She's beautiful inside and out. She is so comfortable with herself , who she is and what she's about. I like that!

SOUL magazine photo shoot

I got a call from SOUL magazine asking to do a feature on me.
It's basically about the work that I do as a TV Presenter, Radio DJ and Content Producer. I was so excited I said YES!!
Today was the day of the shoot.

Now I'm one person who absolutely loves photo shoots! Which girl doesn't?
I enjoy being pampered...
I love it when someone does my make-up, well I get it done when I shoot for Sistahood and Craz-e World Live on , but it feels different when it's for a photo shoot.
Different make-up artist... different make-up... you know what I mean.

Today was no different, they made me feel like a princess.
I also enjoy having a wide variety of clothes to choose from.
It's like stepping into someone's amazing wardrobe and picking what you want.
Well, I did that today and I was happy!

Here are some pics from the day.

This is the team I worked with: From your left:
Photographer : Shaun Smith
Model : Me! :)
Stylist : Ryno Mulder
Make-Up artist: Vuyo Varoyi

They were just so amazing! It felt like we've all known each other for years.

Vuyo doing my make-up!!! I trust him completely! He's done my make-up before for a Hype magazine shoot I did.
Tip: Always be nice to make-up artists... or else.... (you know the rest)..hahaha

All in all, it was a fun shoot! I can't upload photos from the photo shoot before the mag hits the shelves, but I'll make a plan as soon as it's out.

Take care

The Craz-e office!

Meet the amazing people I work with at the Craz-e office!!! They seriously need help.. all of them! Especially Palesa.
You be the judge!

Meet Palesa, then Allen with Palesa, then Zola with Palesa, Marilyn with Palesa and me with Palesa.
Damn this girl is everywhere!!!
Fun times!

So was I right in saying that Palesa is everywhere?
She adores the spotlight and it loves her back just as much!

Take care

Lee-Roy's 3rd degree burn!!

Lee-Roy and I licking his 3rd degree burn

Lee-Roy happily licking his burn!! No pain at all? Really?

Hahahahahahahah!!! Don't tell me you're one of those who fell for this! You are? Come on!! Well it is quite convincing.
Lee-Roy had a Frenzy shoot today and one of the guests on the show was a special effects make-up artist.
She created this amazing 3rd degree burn! Awesome isn't it?
I posted it on facebook and people went crazy!! Like we were evil or something. One person even accused us of being Satanists and even called me the 'B' word! No.. not Beautiful, not even Bootylicious.
The other 'B' word. Seriously? I deleted him immediately. I have no time for such!
Some people take life way too seriously.

Big ups to the make-up artist ( I forgot to get her name), but great job!!!
I want to have something like this done on my face, then ask Lee-Roy to lick it like he did with my pimple.. hahahha ok, maybe not!!

Take care

Thursday, July 7, 2011

Thursday 7 July 2011.
Craz-e World Live was on again... I did the show with Lee-Roy! Best co-host ever! We've grown so close and it's become more of a brother\sister relationship! We bring out the best(and sometimes worst) in each other! And guess what?? He licked my pimple today! Hahaha! Grose right? Nope! Not for us! We're a special breed!

Anyway, it's still cold... This might seem weird, but I think the cold is like death,you never really get used to it ..(Ya,like death just no as permanent)! Let's fast forward to summer please!

On to positive news! I've planned a big trip for next month. I'll fill you in closer to the time...I'm really looking forward to it!

All in all,I'm in a good state of mind, I am doing what I love, I appreciate the people around me and I strive to use my talents to the best of my ability.

Use your talents!
Chat soon

My Guy

So I've read this quote quite a lot. I don't know who it is by, so if you know please help me out here. I love it so much because it describes my boyfriend to the t...
Here it is:

“Find a guy who calls you beautiful instead of hot, who calls you back when you hang up on him, who will lie under the stars and listen to your heartbeat, or will stay awake just to watch you sleep... wait for the boy who kisses your forehead, who wants to show you off to the world when you are in sweats, who holds your hand in front of his friends, who thinks you're just as pretty without makeup on. One who is constantly reminding you how much he cares and how lucky he is to have you.... The one who turns to his friends and says, 'that's her.'”

That's him!!! My boy!!!!

Sunday, June 26, 2011

Oh, but the cold! Brrrrrrrrr!!!!

It's June 26 2011 and I can't wait until the winter season is over!! It's flippen cold!! On my way home from work this morning, the temperature was 4 degrees!
4 degrees? That's nothing compared to the cold I felt when I was in Amsterdam last year December.
It was their winter and I think the worst that I experienced was -10degrees , snow and all.. so what's 4 degrees? Nothing!

Oh boy, why am I fooling myself? 4 degrees IS cold...
Getting up for work has become such a mission. I don't know how many times I press the snooze button...5 more minutes please!
I hate that's it's still dark when I get up for work. I hate that it's already dark when I leave work at 5pm. I hate having to wear layers and layers of clothing (Makes dressing up interesting though). I hate that my body insists that I eat more...(kinda enjoy the eating part, but the results will not be too pleasing). I hate not feeling like going out for anything, not even to buy newspapers or meet up with friends for lunch.

Ok, I've been using the word 'hate' this whole time. It's quite a strong word.Let's replace it with 'dislike'.. Much better!!

So ya, I dislike winter!!
I will never ever complain about the sun being too hot!
I will never complain about anybody's sweat smell.
I will not complain about having to have my aircon on all the time in the car.
I will not complain about getting a little darker because of the sun.

So can we please fast forward to 2 months from now?
Pweeeety please???

Marianne Williamson

One of my favourite quotes!!

Don't be afraid to shine.

Feed The Fish

I'm hoping you've noticed that I have a tab just below the top of my page.
That is my fish tank with all the fish inside.

When you move your mouse in and around the tank, the fish follow the mouse pointer... try it.. they will follow.. cute hey?

They need to eat all the time, so whenever you visit, please left click as many time as you want. As soon as you do that, you will see brown substances dropping next to the fish... that is their food!
You have successfully fed my fish!!
And you can give them as much food as you want... they won't die.. promise!

Thought I'd add something fun for you!!

Be Good

Hey there!

So yes, I did it again!
I really have to stop with these disappearing acts!

Truth is, I've just been really swamped with work.
I've been juggling presenting, producing, radio and whenever I get a chance all I want to do is blog, but my body won't allow it.
I've been a little tired and uninspired.

Exciting times though...
Rhythm City , (a South African soapie on asked me to be part of one of their episodes.
If you don't know it, here's what it's about:

Rhythm City is a daily soapie that premiered on on Monday 9 July, 2007 at 18h30.

Set in the world of the South African music industry the show blends youth and contemporary adult culture and aims to give a realistic glimpse into the world of music showbiz and the lives of the people who inhabit it.

The action takes place in the city, townships and suburbs of Johannesburg and puts the spotlight on the power battles that happen in the music industry. Storylines revolve around record companies, promoters, producers, DJs and the stars as well as the wannabe stars, has-beens and everyone's families and lovers.

So....Every year, they have the MIA's (Music Industry awards) that they host within the soapie and they asked me to be the MC this year!
It was such an exciting shoot that was pretty long, but so much fun!
It was an honor for me to do it. I mean.... they could've asked somebody else, but they asked me and I can't wait for you to see it!

The nerves almost killed me though, but I hid them well during the shoot....or so I hope!

It will be aired at the end of August on and I'll be sure to remind you to watch!!

In the meantime... Be Good!!

Sistahood Title Sequence

This is Sistahood's title sequence! I remember how much fun we were having while shooting this. The set up was at a park and all we had to do was play and have fun!! We can do that anyday! We felt like little children again! We went on the swings, blew bubbles, went on the merry go-round and how could we have not squeezed in a bit of some girly talk?? We love those!!
In the video are the Sistahood presenters, Gill Hughes, Kriya Gangiah, Babalwa Rasane and me Pearl Modiadie.
