The Beautiful Game sparkles

Soccer Ball

Nothing says “I love Soccer” quite like a R20-million life-size soccer ball encrusted with 900 carats of white and black diamonds set in 18 carat white gold.

If you don’t love Soccer to the tune of R20m, the good news is that there are eight crystal replicas that will be on sale throughout the country for R8000 a piece at Shimansky stores. Proceeds from the sale of these little trinkets will go to charity.

Not really sure what I would say if I was presented with one of those R8000 beauties…other than to quote one of my favourite movies “This is going STAIGHT to the Pool room”. Please note, I am not even bothering to say what I would say if someone presented me 2,2kgs of diamond encrusted soccer ball…but I think you could safely say that if I was presented with 900 carats, you could safely assume that the State of the Man-scape had changed considerably!!!

Shakira is in Jozi

8 Jun

So I read it in the tabloids (and it must be true if we read it there…) that Shakira has arrived safely at OR Tambo and is settling in to life in Jozi ahead of her big performance on Thursday night at the Opening Ceremony of the Soccer World Cup 2010.

Don’t you just love the nice inclusion of the substantial police escort that she needed to get through the throngs of fans at ORT?


Is that one gun on the man’s hip not enough to keep an ardent Shakira fan at bay??

I also noticed the practical travelling footwear that she chose for the trip… Although, I am guessing that she wasn’t travelling in the part of the plane where the footwell would be completely chockers once she had kicked those off and swapped them for those nice nylon socks (you know, the ones with no heels?). Am also thinking that if she did spend the night in those skinny jeans…it wasn’t a comfortable trip.
Shakira 2

I am really hoping that the man with the gun in this 2nd pic is the same one as in the previous shot, as I would be VERY disappointed to think that more than 1 heavily armed police man was necessary to protect her from her fans and paparazzi!

Anyway, She is here, IT is almost here…can you feel it??

Louis Vuitton puts their mark on the SWC

2 Jun

Not to be outdone by the month of great sport ahead of us, luxury French fashion house Louis Vuitton has put their stamp on the World Cup…specifically on the World Cup trophy carrying case.

Louis Vuitton Case (source: LA TImes)

Louis Vuitton Case (source: LA Times)

The custom designed leather-bound case was produced to carry the trophy to our sunny shores and was presented to FIFA by Louis Vuitton and Naomi Campbell on yesterday.

The nice thing about the case is that in true LV style, it is subtle and understated and unlikely to catch the eye of any baggage handlers looking to profit from the suitcases of the SWC supporters! Good thinking!!

Feel it …it is almost here

24 May

It is 17 days until we take on Mexico for the opening game of the World Cup and it is all getting VERY exciting!!

The world’s advertising peeps have done so well to produce some awesome ads and promo videos for the Big Event and I thought you might like to check out a couple of them to get you in the mood!!

This one is great…although not entirely sure where a Chimpanzee would fit into the African picture???

This one was produced for BBC Sport and is a great clip to get you feeling really positive and proudly South African!

This one could in fact be one of the most expensive ads ever made. It shows how soccer could write the future for sports stars. It includes some of the biggest names in Soccer at the moment. Remember the educational video clip that I showed you a little while back…do you recognise any of those guys here??  Perhaps you recognise Cristiano Ronaldo and Didier Drogba? Maybe even Wayne Rooney or Ronaldinho?? You would be right in thinking you spotted Roger Federer in there too, as well as Kobe Bryant (the basketballer)…and my personal favourite Homer Simpson! Well done Nike, this is awesome!

Salons and Spas of Cape Town Winter Specials 2010

21 May

Hot Stone Massage

That Blog is bringing you a Winter Specials List with a difference…this is a list of the Winter Specials offered by Salons and Spas in Cape Town and the Winelands.

This list will be updated constantly and so it is good to check back regularly and see if there are any new exciting specials on offer.

Click here to view the full list….

Come on Girls, treat yourselves, you deserve it!!

If you are a Spa or Salon owner and would like to have your Winter Special listed here, please mail me at thatblogger

Have you got your SWC dance moves ready?

19 May

Right, so part of this whole Soccer World Cup vibe is learning the appropriate dances. These may need to be enacted in the event of Bafana Bafana actually winning a game or failing that, just general jubilation in the stands/fan parks. That Blog is here to help you!!!

There are two important dances to know…the Diski Dance (which I have to admit is definitely the higher grade version) and then the Waka Waka dance (the much easier version a.k.a the 27 pints of lager and much joviality version). The video clips attached will give you all you need to know to learn the dances and be able to practice them in the comfort of your own home before having to bust out some moves in Green Point Stadium/Soccer City/the place you are watching the game.

The Diski Dance…

The Waka Waka Dance…

Maybe if you really perfect your Diski Dance, you can use it as a sneaky intro when you spot The Princes in a nightclub in Cape Town!

Or maybe not…

Two Princes in South Africa

19 May

This does not relate to the trashy 90′s song that will probably be stuck in your head now that I have mentioned it…this relates to the REAL DEAL. Yip, Prince William and Prince Harry are heading to SA for that Soccer Spectacular that we are all getting excited about…the 2010 Soccer World Cup!!  So, Girls, I have told you who you can be watching for on the field, now you know who to be looking for in the stands!!!


Prince William is President of The Football Association and so he is  visiting South Africa on their behalf and then I am quite sure, purely co-incidentally, Prince Harry thought that some time in June 2010 was a good time to go and check out some of the charity work he did in Lesotho in 2008. They will also be stopping off for a visit to Botswana, where Prince William is involved with the wildlife charity Tusk Trust. The visit to South Africa will be the first time that The Princes have carried out joint engagements overseas.

The Princes will attend the match between England and Algeria…which, in case you didn’t know is being played in Cape Town!! They are also expected to be attending England’s first group C match against the United States on June 12 in Rustenburg. We know that certainly the younger of those two boys is not adverse to a nightclub…so Girls, you will need to keep a serious look out!!

Soccer World Cup Stars

6 May

Vanity Fair Cover

So, we all know that the Soccer World Cup is really just around the corner and we have a LOT to look forward to…but I thought that just in case you needed any more reason to get excited for what is heading to our shores in just over a month from today, this might interest you.

World Cup Pic

The June edition of Vanity Fair features an Annie Liebovitz photo shoot with some of the Soccer World Cup Stars stripped down to…just their flags. The good people at VF were even kind enough to produce a little video clip of the shoots.

Click on this link to learn a bit more about the Stars of the Beautiful Game.

So, next time you hear The Blokes discussing Ronaldo or Drogba…maybe you will be able to put a face to a name and even know which country they will be playing for!
