I don’t know if it’s the excitement that’s got to me or all the busyness and festivities of February has my mind jumping all over the place.
So while I’m off for a weekend away to celebrate my first anniversary, this week’s Friday Favourites was hard to pick with so much happening.
Favourite Tweet: Jamie Oliver’s restaurant
— thejoburgfoodie (@thejoburgfoodie) January 27, 2016
It was confirmed recently that TV’s renowned chef, Jamie Oliver is actually opening a restaurant here in South Africa. I’m happy to say it will in fact be Jamie’s Italian by Jamie Oliver. No date has been set yet on when this will happen but keep your eyes set on Melrose Arch for any developments.
Favourite TED Talk: Shonda Rhimes
If you’re not listening to TED Talks then I suggest you start. It is a melting pot of conversations surrounding politics, everyday life, mental health, relationship, creativity and anything you can think of.
A recent TED Talk by television powerhouse, Shonda Rhimes popped on my radar. You have to hear what the powerful woman had to say.

Favourite Acceptance Speech: Taylor Swift
The 2016 Grammy Awards awarded the best in the music industry, while the red carpet wasn’t on point as previous years. It was the performances and the speeches that had me applauding.
Taylor Swift took the gong for Album of the Year for second time in a row. The first woman in history to do so. Apparently according to Kanye West, he takes credit for making her famous… Meantime her acceptance speech addressed Kanye West’s ridiculous claims.
Well done to Taylor for a speech well said and to Kanye… You have a daughter yet you’re actually anti-feminist! Don’t take credit where it doesn’t exist.
P.S. You’re a douchebag!
Favourite Balloons: PARTY
No party is complete without some awesome decorations. While Mr Price Home has upped the ante with their foil balloon range. So get them while stocks last!
Enjoy the weekend and share with me your thoughts on what made your own list of favourites this week.
