My US West Coast Trip

6 Jun

Hey Guys,

As promised here’s my account of my favourite moments on the Miller trip. Firstly, I gotta say; we live in a beautiful country with great people and great prospects. More than anything thats what this trip validated for me. BIG UP MZANSI, we proper got it good.

OK, now to the good stuff. We started off in LA, all excited to go to one of the hottest clubs in the city. And guess what?  I got sick!!! REALLY sick (I promise NO visuals). The doctor got called into my room, and it was a night in bed for me. The good news is that I got to watch some American television, which was a great learning experience. I picked up quiet a few things like; our ads are sooo much better, but the variety of television choices is beyond amazing. With the right formula, you can literally make anything a succesful TV show in America. Which really got me thinking…

The next day I woke up feeling fresh and ready to take off to San Francisco. What a beautiful city! Won’t say much, as the pix will tell the story. Oh and a girl got some mad shopping done!!!

VEGAS!!! As they say; “what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas!” Well peeps, NOT with me. Here we stayed at the Cosmopolitan Hotel. Saying it was like Sun City on steriods is THE understatement of the century. Its just as beautiful.  Just MASSIVE. The rooms were big and gorgeous with amazing views of the city that never sleeps. Our pool deck was amazing, and everyone fabulously walks around in their bikinis & baggies. Everything you’ve ever seen, read or heard about Vegas, is…100% true x10. Its like new year’s eve everynight. We went to Tao night club, that owes its fame to the Kardashians. There were gorgeous girls, in skimpy lingerie, dancing all night on levels in cages. whilst the dance floor was packed to the rim with clubbers jamming to the hottest tunes. Thanx to Miller, we had the dopest VIP area, where the clutter never affected us.

We all couldn’t wait for the next morning as it was back to LA and brought us hours closer to the MTV Movie Awards. Russel Brand as host was hella funny. Seeing the simplicity of the stage and its dramatics being created by great lighting made me wish an SA production was there to witness. Side Note: the SAMAs were amazing, great stage, great production – not all our awards have that big a budget. This proved to me, that the same dramatics can be created on a smaller budget.

Seeing Amber Rose in real life, made me realize what a “thick” woman really is. This calls for a blog on its own…

Aight peeps. Check my pix for more deets ❤

Hey Guys,

What a week it has been for me. The US West Coast was way too good. Right now I’m making my way home!!! YAYYYY!!!! We have an 11 hour stopover in London (so bleak – I’ve missed home. I’ve been missed at home). Enough about that – will give you a full round up of the MMTW experience- with pics and videos on Wednesday.

As you might know from my Facebook & Twitter posts; the Motions advert has been shot and it has already flighted – yesterday. The whole experience was exciting and I enjoyed myself, thanks to the Unilever team (Cathy & Sphe. And of course, Tony in absentia), the ad agency (Buchanana Group) tasked with creating an ad to fit my lifestyle and laboured in record time so that you guys get to see a quality final product. They ensured that I had the Penthouse Suite @ the Pepper Club as my home for the weekend and yes I felt like the A-Lister, that I’m not (LOL). This one should take us to the Loeries guys!!!

A special thanks goes out to my trusted – Beauty Amplifiers my makeup goddess Diana Maphapho & hair stylist with extraordinaire, Izak Letele, not forgetting Kevin who was just as instrumental in creating the hair looks. I’ve got to give a shout out to my Hair Doctor, Abdul from Shaina, who ensures that my natural tresses are well taken care of and maintain that ‘limitless. shine”. Thought I’d share the final product with you guys…

See you on the flipside SA *singing “honey I’m coming home. I’m on my way…”*

Hey Guys,

I just wanted to put this welcome note on my blog. This will be the platform I use to inform you of all my projects, and were you’ll get the most current (might I add) factual news about me. You’ll be getting it straight from me, Minnie. I’ll post news, pics, video clips and all things Minnie…  

Either than Twitter/Facebook – here you’ll get a more detailed look into my life and we can all enjoy a more intimate experience.

I must say I cant wait to share with you all and give you the “inside scoop” of my life! Right now I’m in Vegas, preparing to jet off to LA (All thanks to SAB Miller for inviting me to this year’s Miller Music Tour West) – yeah I’ll be at the MTV Movie awards. I promise to take loads of pictures and upload some video clips as well. Last night I went to Toa, yes that Toa, where all the Kardashians celebrate their birthdays – we’re rolling A-Lister style up in here.

XoXo – Minnie

PS. Keep me posted on the Bafana Bafana score guys!!! Go Bafana *wink*
