 Rocking a @witcheryfashion cape on #Superrugby tonight. Who said rugby can't be fashion forward? ☺️ @SuperSportTV @woolworths_sa  Kept the #Kuga in shot to illustrate the sheer size of the Eiffel Tower replica in Parys
 #MotivationalMonday Give it horns!  It is scientifically proven that people who have more birthdays live longer. @Wendino has celebrated the same birthday almost every day since Tuesday, so here's to 100 more!
 "The name of Parys was given to the town by a German surveyor named Schilbach... (apparently) the location next to the Vaal reminded him of Paris on the River Seine." @IloveFreeState

Yesterday, I blogged about how Miss SA (and pageants in general) attract our attention to causes we might otherwise never have heard of. Today I’d like to see if I can do the same thing.

It’s hard. At school and in any tertiary learning experience, every year presents new lessons, growth and change.
