How To Guarantee A Valentine’s Gift This Year

Published

on

If you are reading this you probably didn’t get a valentines gift and you are wondering why? Are you are that girl every year that finds herself waiting for that surprise gift that never shows up? Or have you just given up entirely on Valentine’s Day because your partner thinks it’s pointless and he always has to go to the “men’s conference” this week.

You try to avoid it, but deep down you want those random flowers sent your office accompanied by that cute creepy teddy bear, chocolates (even though you on a diet) and a note that reads: “Be ready by 8, I am taking you somewhere special. Love, your lover”.

And then you end the lovely night with some old school R&B music on that Bold & The Beautiful love making. Pretty much seems like the perfect cheesy date you’ve been dreaming of. Or maybe you not that fussy and all you are asking for is just flowers, or even a rose ‘nje’. But still ‘dololo!’

With all efforts you make, to remind him of the big day coming, by hinting via WhatsApp stories, still no gift? All you end up getting is a lame happy valentines text or better yet for those that are single NOTHING except for WhatsApp stories of other people being spoiled rotten while you stare at your screen at work. Which ends up ruining your entire mood and making you become the biggest advocate for anti valentines days.

So, now, how do we fix this?

Do we buy ourselves flowers and post them? Do we ship our boyfriends to boyfriending academy? You are probably waiting for 6 fire tips to getting those gifts but unfortunately I don’t have them, what anticlimax huh?! But I will help you enjoy this Valentine’s Day differently, with no expectations.

There are a few things you can do this Valentine’s to not feel so alone, like:

WEEKDAY MAYHEM

You can spice things up by taking you and your girls on a night out clubbing, karaoke night, singles party, speedy dating etc. what ever rocks your boat.

GIFT EXCHANGE

I would suggest you get all your friends that didn’t get a gift to come over to your place with an item from their closet that doesn’t fit or they don’t want and exchange simultaneously. You would be surprised what treasure you would find in someone else’s trash and you could bond over some wine too.

‘WE GOT NO GIFTS’ DINNER

Call anyone you know for a cosy dinner laughing at your silly Valentines expectations

CHEAT DAY!

Buy yourself those guilty pleasures treats just this once because you deserve it. That’s your love language moes.

GAMES NIGHT

Call your friends over for game night, it gets your mind of things.

Be creative have fun with it, make it a day to look forward to every year. Take this as an opportunity to remind those you love, how much you love them. This Valentine’s Day amplify your love. Always remember love exists within yourself, others just amplify it. Go on and express your love language.

Published

on

Sports brand PUMA and Diamond Supply continue their long-standing partnership through the latest collection for adults.

With “California Dreaming’ as its leitmotif, the collab introduces a selection of footwear, apparel and accessories with bold logos and unique tie-dye effects.

Renowned for his unique take on streetstyle, Nick Tershay a.k.a. Nick Diamond moved from San Francisco to Los Angeles, CA in pursuit of a dream and turned Diamond Supply Co. into one of the biggest, most authentic skate and streetwear brands in the industry.

The third collection fuses PUMA’s iconic silhouettes and sportswear classics with fresh new icons. Embodying a true Californian lifestyle, the collection takes cues from the textures of backyard pools and skate-bowls and is applied with a vibrant colour pallet that reflects the dreamy LA sun.

Diamond’s aesthetics appears across PUMA classics like Suede and Cali. The modern tennis silhouette, CALI-0 DIAMOND SUPPLY features a soft tonal leather and reflective overlays that sits on a full translucent iced outsole.

The sneaker arrives in vintage hues with white cotton laces while the Suede DIAMOND SUPPLY has a soft suede upper and a unique tie-dye effect that extends also to the laces, taking you back to the summery LA pools.

The sneaker features a smooth nubuck PUMA Formstrip that stands out in recognizable DIAMOND blue colourway.

The collection brings California inspired graphic tees and track tops for an eye-catching PUMA X DIAMOND outfit. Animal print with tie- dye effects and bold logos for a premium-retro flavour. This collection truly lives and breathes the full extent of California culture.

PUMA X DIAMOND SUPPLY collection drops at PUMA Select, Jack Lemkus, X-Trend, Superbalist and selected retailers from 25 May 2019.

Supersport Sacks Robert Marawa via Text

Veteran sportscaster Robert Marawa has detailed his axing from Supersport, saying he was already “half dressed” when he recieved the text message two hours before he was allegedly scheduled to be on air.

You’d think 13 years of consistently delivering high quality sports scoops with insight would have earned Robert Marawa a cute send off from Supersport.

But on Thursday, the veteran sports broadcaster was allegedly sacked through a text message, just two hours before his popular TV show, Thursday Night Live with Marawa, was due to go on air.

Marawa took to Twitter to detail the humiliating departure from the sports channel, revealing that he’d already been “half dressed” for his show when the alleged text came. The text message, according to Madluphuthu, as he’s affectionately known, informed him not to “bother coming to the studio”.

Supersport released a statement on Friday, saying Robert had been in the loop about his dismissal.

Not entirely true, Robert Marawa insisted on Friday morning.

The said meeting happened on Wednesday, according to the award winning sportscaster. “The only time we actually sat down to talk was on Wednesday at 15:30”, he told Phat Joe in a Radio 2000 interview that took place on Friday morning.

“I went to work already half dressed… I was on the running order. I (was) due to be on the show last night and I’m in the schedule to do the Champions League on the first of June. Why lie to people?”

In the candid chat between the legendary broadcasters, during which Phat Joe sobbed as Robert detailed the firing, Marawa recalls the dismissal while alluding to a culture of silencing dissent in the establishment.

“I’ve been threatened”, he said, recalling a time he found himself in the ICU last year. Robert Marawa has also said that he fears for his life.

In the statement, Supersport have said that they are merely freshening things up on their platform, and that’s its a move that excludes Robert Marawa.

“SuperSport is in the process of an exciting refresh of its local presenter line-up, which will be unveiled as part of our new football season campaign”, they shared. “This restructure includes us not pursuing our contractual relationship with Robert Marawa.”

Babes Wodumo’s Vosho Outside Court Angers Fans

Babes Wodumo and Mampintsha walk side by side during court appearance

Published

It’s been an emotional rollercoaster.

A day after reports of Babes Wodumo dropping assault charges against Mampintsha hit the grapevine, the self proclaimed Gqom Queen sparked more outrage after a clip of her jubilant self dancing outside court surfaced.

More pictures and videos emerged of the couple outside the Durban Magistrate court on Wednesday, where Babes Wodumo, her sister and singer Tipcee were attending a common assault case for the alleged assault of a woman.

In a clip obtained by Times Live, Babes Wodumo can be seen breaking in her trademark vosho dance, minutes before she dashed off to support her boyfriend, Mampintsha, as he heard his fate in Pinetown magistrate’s court.

Real name Bongekile Simelane, the 24 year old Durbanite withdrew the charge a mere two months after Mampintsha appeared to bash her on Instagram Live. The video appeared to be a live stream of a heated argument between the troubled couple, who’s recent woes have continued being the talk of town.

The two were sported side by side after hearing the case, which has now been reportedly referred to FAMSA for an intervention.
