Wowed by Kylie

Hi everyone, sorry I’ve been absent for a while. Been hectic, and the kids have had school holidays and it’s been co------ld! Brrrrrr!

This weekend we treated ourselves to some entertainment – Kylie-style. Yes we went with some friends to see Kylie Minogue’s World Tour “Aphrodite Live” at Sun City.

Aren’t these costumes amazing?… (and there were many more!)

The opening costume – she started the show preforming “Aphrodite”. I loved the Grecian goddess theme….

My favourite outfit – an elegant top hat with a bustier and huge puffy ball-gown full-length skirt made from black feathers – gorgeously over the top and glamorous!…..

The show was amazing : entertaining and a stunning spectacle! Muscled dancers hanging from above the stage, amazing props, superb sound and Kylie looked sensational in loads of outrageously glamorous costumes designed by none other than Dolce & Gabbana. If you’re in South Africa, take the time to squeeze in a show – I think there still are a few tickets- she has her last show tonight at Sun City, then two in Cape Town, ending on Thursday. This also ends her world tour of 76 performances in 30 countries.

She’s a tiny dynamo who lights up the stage and so worth seeing! Go Kylie!

So we had a cold weekend, warmed up nicely by the superb Palace of the Lost City at Sun City and an awesome show! (Oh – and too much fabulous food!!)

An added bonus - We actually saw Kylie in the lobby of the hotel when were checking in! She was walking out to be transported to the Sun City Superbowl for the show just as we arrived! Funny thing- she walked through the lobby as if she was simply ‘nobody’, casually dressed and unassuming. So much so, that we only realised it was her just after she walked through the doors and a hoard of security men followed quietly.

Now back to reality… tomorrow, my son starts school again after mid-term and my daughter is away for 4 days with my parents as she still has holidays until July 25th. So back to early-rising and bracing the cold weather to get to school on time…

Chat soon,
