Here’s what happened at Cape Town Fringe Festival 2014

Cape Town Fringe Festival 2014

I’m not one for Arts and Culture but decided to step out of my comfort zone to attend The Cape Town Fringe Festival. That said, I am so glad that I did! The vibe at the Cape Town City Hall is awesome!  This event is an absolute hive of excitement, stirring up the Mother City with a host of over 100 remarkable shows which commenced on the 25th of September and will run up until the 5th October. This is made possible by the Grahamstown National Arts Festival team, and supported by the City of Cape Town, Standard Bank, 567 Cape Talk and MNet. The Cape Town Fringe Festival offers an array of exciting performances which caters for all personality types.

Another fabulous attraction at this event is The Fringe Club. An awesome spot to chill, catch-up, and enjoy free wi-fi while having a few drinks and a bite to eat. It’s the perfect place to keep you entertained in between shows. You also have the opportunity to meet and mingle with the performers of your favorite productions. Happy Hour is between 4pm to 6pm everyday and there are some fantastic lunch deals happening with participating performances at 1pm weekdays. For an extra R20 you get a cooldrink and sandwhich delivered to the show you are viewing. You just get to relax, enjoy lunch with your choice of entertainment.

As mentioned earlier in this post, stepping out of my comfort zone, I decided that my first stop would be Ashes to Ashes, a theatre production about a psychologically traumatized wife (Terry Norton who stars as Rebecca ) preoccupied by her past life experiences. Her much questioned husband (Mark Elderkin who stars as Devlin) eagerly probes her for answers wants her to come to terms with the abuse she has endure with the horrible loss of her baby and the abusiveness of a previous partner. This show is director by Gabriella Pinto is shown at City Hall 3 from 25 to 29 September, City Hall 3 (Theatre) at R70 per ticket. I must say these actors are amazing, I could feel the frustration and relief throughout the production. A true work of art!

Now that you have the inside Nachi Cape Town Blogger scoop of what happened at the Fringe Festival in 2014…Grab yourself a date book a show :)

How to Strobe vs Contouring

To strobe..or not to strobe

We live in a generation where media and celebrities influence us daily. One of the most popular beauty icons are The Kardashians. They have been on the map for a few years, with their following growing daily. They are absolutely on trend whether it’s fashion, beauty, their lifestyle or just a bit of gossip.

I follow them for beauty trends, as the make-up artists that work on them are amazing. I believe Kim Kardashian started the whole “contouring” revolution. Contouring was always around; I just think they really made it trendy which we now follow.
Contouring can really enhance your features and make you look like a top model…or you can ruin your face for the moment. Although contouring looks amazing, it really takes skill and practice. I get the “please contour my face,” request with just about every makeup application But wouldn’t it be nice to have a contoured look in the comfort of your own home without paying for a makeup artist if you’re just going to the mall ?Good news.. You can !
I think everyone has somewhere seen “strobing vs contouring” and a how to video. I would recommend that you watch it!

Strobing and contouring are opposites with the same function. When contouring you create shadows on the face that creates the illusion of depth, where strobing/highlighting brings forward. Combining the two you can shape your face and “correct” facial features.
My personal opinion is that strobing is easier than contouring and it gives you a nice glow and fresh faced look !
When strobing/contouring it’s important to know what face shape you have so you can contour/strobe so it would benefit your features.

That is just a little insight into strobing.

Have fun on your face !

RubyBox Beauty Spoils

Being spoiled on your birthday makes you feel pretty special I can admit. But how would you feel about 12 spoils a year? I like that idea a lot! We are really going to miss you Rubybox, since you have discontinued the monthly box ☹
The last of the Beauty Rubybox spoils : Roll-on deodorant from Natural Lab, face wash from
Nutri Women and a Lipice/lip conditioner from Softlips.

I used theNatural Lab roll-on for about a week just to test it and see if it holds up to the purpose of deodorant. It surely kept the same fragrance throughout the day. This is a natural roll-on and you can clearly tell that by the smell of it. I’m not a huge fan of natural oils as deodorant or perfume, but hay “if it works, it works!”

I’m a lip gloss & lip ice kinda girl ! I always have lip-ice or Blistex with me. It helps keep my lips moisturized for when the need for lipart or lipstick is required. What I found with this softlips lip conditioner is that for me personally it works best when I apply it before I go bed. You will definitely wake up with the best Softlips, soft lips ever ! Smooches*

Now my favorite product is the Nutri Women skin perfect face wash. It is the most amazing face wash ever, and trust me when I say I have experimented with every face wash.
With all the creative makeup and face/body paint I have realized I spend way too much money on wet wipes. After using this beauty Nutri Women skin perfect wash, I have I had no colour pigment left in my pores like per norm. The thick soapy texture really lifts all dirt and unnecessary oils from the skin and leaves its clean, smooth and soft. The smell is amazing and and with all the different vitamins and natural oils, it’s really beneficial to your skin. I will purchase this product in a few weeks since I’m almost out.

25 June 2015 – Cape Town’s most anticipated fashion showcase, Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Cape Town, has found a beautiful new home: The Watershed and North Wharf at the V&A Waterfront.

 

The new venues will provide a fresh backdrop for South Africa’s leading designers to showcase their Spring/Summer collections which takes place from 30th July to 1st August 2015.

 

“We chose to move Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Cape Town to the V&A Waterfront to give this landmark event a revitalised perspective against a magnificent setting, placing this premier event at the heart of one of Cape Town’s most iconic destinations,” says Sizwe Nzimande, group marketing manager of African Fashion International (AFI), organisers of the event.

 

“As the Watershed is home to some of South Africa’s most inspiring design and located in the heart of the V&A Waterfront, we are confident that the new home of Cape Town fashion is going to be a firm favourite among designers, models, sponsors, fashionistas and media alike.”

 

Located between the food market and the Two Oceans Aquarium at the V&A Waterfront, the Watershed is the redeveloped and facelifted incarnation of the iconic Blue Shed Craft Market and Wellness Centre. Its recent revamp has created a beautiful, serene space that is home to some of South Africa’s most beautiful and innovative textiles, fashion and jewellery, creating the perfect backdrop for the country’s leading fashion showcase.

 

“There is a natural synergy between what the Watershed represents and the local fashion, that is brought to life through Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Cape Town, and we are excited to welcome the event to the V&A Waterfront, “says David Green, CEO at the V&A Waterfront.

 

The Watershed will host the hospitality and ticketing elements of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Cape Town, while the nearby North Wharf will house the ramp for the Spring/ Summer fashion collections that will be presented by more than 30 established and emerging South African designers. A stellar line-up of local and international modelling talent will introduce the collections to guests flocking to be a part of the much anticipated event.

 

Guests can look forward to a magnificent marquee setting on the North Wharf that will perfectly display each designer’s collections as they are viewed by the local and international fashion industry and media, as well as fashion enthusiasts from all over the world.

 

“AFI is the gateway to refined African fashion, and we are confident that this new venue provides a world-class platform that promotes the achievements and careers of local designers.”

 

“No fashion week is complete without our amazing sponsors. Mercedes-Benz remains our title sponsor for the next three years, while partners M.A.C and ghd are also onboard again. M.A.C will provide our models unique looks that will enrich, complement and enhance every outfit, and ghd will ensure hairstyles that turn heads. The City of Cape Town and DStv will also ensure each experience at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Cape Town, whether indoor or outdoor, is much more entertaining and exciting in the beautiful Mother City,” he says.
