Trending In My Life This Week…

Allow me to share some of the highlights of my week with you. I will try to do this every Friday. Hopefully I don’t forget.


This week has went by quite fast. I had my head in my books most of the time as I was writing a test on Wednesday and I am also writing another one tomorrow. I am bummed that I won’t be going to the Mercedes Benz Fashion Week which opened today, but I will try to scout the interwebs for pictures to post.

One of the highlights of my week is meeting the hottie below on campus. After pondering on how I was gonna start talking to him, I noticed a tattoo on his arm and asked him if I could take a picture of it. Little did he know I was snatching a picture of his face too. He smells so good! The tattoo says “In God’s Hands” and it is written in beautiful cursives.


On my playlist:

I have been listening to “He Lives In You” from The Lion King quite a lot lately. I think it is an absolutely amazing song. Diana Ross and Tina Turner have recorded covers of the song but I prefer Lebo M’s version of it. Here is a video from the movie:


He Lives In You


I’ve also been listening to Beyoncé’s Satellites quite a lot. I have no idea why but the song is absolutely beautiful and it strips away all the glamour and loudness that most music has these days.  It has a purity about it. Basically, I’ve only listened to old songs this week.

What I watched:

Intersexions 2 Episode 4 was playing this week and Bonang Matheba made her acting debut. I think she did quite well. I was particularly happy with the fact that she was playing a “normal” role in which we got to see her in a different light than usual. Check out all the Intersexions Season 2 episodes HERE.

I also watched Nonhle Beryl’s cover version of “He Lives In You” from The Lion King. She plays in the German theatre production of The Lion King as Rafiki most of the time. Peep the video below:


Nonhle–He Lives In You

What I found interesting on twitter:

Someone tweeted this article which is a breakdown on the R40 million spent on the Free State provincial government website upgrades. I think it is absolutely absurd for them to blow such money when South Africa has much bigger fish to fry. I think there is more to this than what we currently know. Check out the article HERE.

What I found interesting on the interwebs:

I rediscovered a blog that I loved in high school called The Bloggess. It is written by Jenny Lawson who is an author and columnist. Her crazy stories and conversations with her husband will have you rolling on the floor. Check her out.

I also discovered which is a lifestyle blog by Wisaal. She writes about basically everything. Wiscellaneous is a play on her name and “miscellaneous”. I want to try out the little Deli in Braamfontein that she wrote about HERE.

Plans for next week:

More studying, blogging and hopefully some shopping!
