A Happy #throwbackthursday

So ladies, we all know Valentine’s day is around the corner therefore I thought I should do a little article about great ideas for valentine’s day.

So, my take on Valentine day is not about how much you spend but more on the memories you make. People have become skeptical about it as time passed only because we have merely become so lazy to put thought behind it that we just run to the store and buy expensive gifts and half the job is done!

Unfortunately, if you are like me and are sentimental at heart what matters most is the memories created more than the price tag of gifts received that matter.

Having said that… here is a list of our top three ideas for valentine’s day and what you can do on this special day.

♥Valentine's Movies in the Park by #PiP

So, this event is hosted by Picnics in the park.
On the day, they will be displaying two movies yep, they are love stories.
You can roll out your picnic blanket and bring along a picnic basket and enjoy a time under the stars with your loved one. What I love most about this event is that it caters for children too in fact you can bring out the whole family and they have a designated play area for children.

It is about R125 per person and R50 for children above the age of 12 and free for children under 12 years. For more details on the terms and conditions of the event you can visit

Evening of Love – Nathi, Vusi Nova, Ntando, Thami and Tebogo Louw

This event is hosted by Nathi Mankayi, Vusi Nova, Muthaland Entertainment, and Ghetto Ruff. This is more like a lover’s concert with beautiful music featuring Afro Soul Singers, Nathi, Vusi Nova and Ntando with special guest artists to be announced.

Nathi South Africa`s biggest CD seller and downloads surpassing 9.5 million streams on his track Nomvula heads the lineup. Vusi Nova, platinum selling artists with his hit album Naninina performs alongside Nathi and they bring their Eastern Cape soul mate Ntando who has won 6 MetroFM awards and 7 Sama`s to complete this soul loving evening of love songs. 

The prices here are from about R250 to R950 for VVIP. Which is a bargain considering the fact that you have all these amazing artists in one place. I don’t know about you but I can’t separate music and love. They will have a a cash bar as well as food available for you to purchase. Just a great night out to spend with your loved one and maybe just reconnect.

It does start at about half five therefore leaving work a little early to beat the traffic would be a great idea. or more details on the terms and conditions of the event you can visit

Valentine's Long Table Dinner

This event is hosted by Joziburg Lane, the lovely thing about this is that it does not just cater for couples but also for singles that would like to mingle with friends on this day.

 It is a shared experience and ideal for groups, singles and couples who are tired of the age-old romantic table-on-its-own Valentine’s recipe. No-one wants to sit at home on Valentines, so grab a group of friends, a significant-other or come on your own and mingle while enjoying delectable food and drinks.

The cost is R380 per person which includes a series of small tasting platters, per person. And a welcome flute of local bubbly.
You need to E-mail to book or send a text/whatsapp message to 082 894 5216.
