Lastly, the cupcake exchange party of 9 August 2010. Where I first met Mpumi, Khayakazi and Lize.
On Women’s Day I went to the most legendary party of my life. No, I didn’t get drunk and kiss random strangers. I didn’t dance until my toes started cramping. I like to think that I live my life with a little more maturity and class. I waltz through Lize’s door with a tower of pink cupcakes, looking cute in my peach sundress and matching, and mandatory, lacey headband.
NO! Recently, my virtual reality became real life when I had my first face-to-face encounter with someone I follow on Twitter: blogger and ad man Khaya Dlanga (@khayadlanga).
He was as awe-inspiring as he is online. I also met Lize Kay (@lizetheunicorn) who invited me to a cupcake party where I met Khayakazi Ngqula (@khayakazi) and Sian Ashleigh Rice (@shaan_ashleigh) who have since become invaluable in providing friendship and cupcakes. Interacting online made our connection possible.
