12 Things Only #Epilator Users Will Know @Braun #BeautyProducts

Hi Guys,

Braun lets you in on the secret things only seasoned epilator users know and will convince you to make the change from traditional or other hair removal method to Epilation. Braun dares you to make the switch and see for yourself. Warning, side effects include experiencing non-stop beautifully smooth, silky skin that you won’t be able to keep your hands off!

1. It’s addictive.
Yes, really. It unveils baby soft, smooth skin like you haven’t experienced since pre-puberty - all at the press of a button. And once you start, you’ll find yourself scheduling regular dates in your diary to keep it feeling super smooth around the clock!
12 Things Only #Epilator Users Will Know @Braun #BeautyProducts
2. There are no in-between days.
Yup, you heard right. It catches even the teeny weeny hairs. 0.5mm to be precise. That’s 4 x shorter than waxing – without the regrowth period, or the price tag, or the mess…
12 Things Only #Epilator Users Will Know @Braun #BeautyProducts
3. …and it’s long lasting. 
That coveted smoooooth feeling genuinely lasts, seriously. Cue gasps of shock from your girlfriends when they have a feel of your smooth skin 4 weeks1 on, and you reply with the name of your beloved epilator - Braun Silk-épil 9 SkinSpa2 – in lieu of your monthly salon appointment when they ask your secret.
12 Things Only #Epilator Users Will Know @Braun #BeautyProducts
4. News alert, you can get quality results from the comfort of your home.
There are no cons, only fuss free, quick and easy hair removal - and even better, you can expect lighter and less noticeable hair regrowth with continued use. We’re SOLD.
12 Things Only #Epilator Users Will Know @Braun #BeautyProducts
5. It’s helping you become more financially savvy.
All the money you’ve saved from cancelling regular waxing appointments can be spent saving for your future… or that dress you were lusting after; or that lipstick, or that handbag… The moral of the story is: the cost of 1 x epilator means you need 0 x salon waxing appointments = more money for you at the end of each month, without compromising on smoothness or convenience. #Winning
12 Things Only #Epilator Users Will Know @Braun #BeautyProducts
6. Your wardrobe forecast is smooth legs & body with a chance of [sunshine / rain / wind].
The elements are the only thing informing your outfit choice and not your grooming (or lack of!).
12 Things Only #Epilator Users Will Know @Braun #BeautyProducts
7. In terms of pain, epilation really isn’t that bad at all.
In fact, Braun Silk-épil epilators have a clever massage attachment for gentler epilation, and you can totally epilate in the bath or shower too. Warm water = relaxed and soothed skin = less discomfort for you! As a total pro, epilation is now virtually painless = you’re totally hooked and there’s no turning back, ever. #teamepilation
12 Things Only #Epilator Users Will Know @Braun #BeautyProducts
8. It’s not just for your legs.
Oh no. It’s a hard working beauty multi-tasker that every woman needs in her grooming arsenal. It can also be used on underarms, arms, face and the bikini area. Hello head-to-toe satin skin!
12 Things Only #Epilator Users Will Know @Braun #BeautyProducts
9. It’s suitable for all women and all skin types –
That’s right sensitive types, this is user friendly for you, too! With two speed modes available, it’s been crafted for women to select from speed 1 for extra gentle epilation, and speed 2 for extra efficient epilation. Simply switch on, hold at a 90 degree angle to the body part you’re epilating, slowly glide against the direction of the hair growth and et voila, fuzz-free skin in an instant!
12 Things Only #Epilator Users Will Know @Braun #BeautyProducts
10. It appeals to the woman...
...who likes to stay in control of her appearance at all times. It’s guaranteed thorough hair removal and prevents pesky ingrown hairs, thanks to its sophisticated design. Braun Silk-épil 9 SkinSpa2 includes Braun’s most efficient epilator4 to date alongside two exfoliation brushes - including the NEW Deep Exfoliation Brush which provides 6x5 better exfoliation vs. a manual exfoliation scrub alone. One word. Sweeeeet.
12 Things Only #Epilator Users Will Know @Braun #BeautyProducts
11. It’s a hair removal device + confidence booster in one.
You’re able to have beautifully smooth, silky skin at the press of a button - with long lasting results and importantly, when it suits you. Hello confidence boost and that accompanying spring-in-your-step your sister / BFF / boyfriend / Mum has noticed.
12 Things Only #Epilator Users Will Know @Braun #BeautyProducts
12. It’s Jessica Alba’s chosen method of hair removal...
... and hey, you’re tight (code for you’ve read an amazing beauty interview with her and know she’s pro-epilation). If it’s good enough for Jessica’s pins, then it’s good enough for you! 
 12 Things Only #Epilator Users Will Know @Braun #BeautyProducts
So in the end, the visible advantages which anyone can get by Epilation can be cost savings, ease of hair removal anytime, pain reduction and much more. Pain is the main issue faced by the consumer in hair removal which is why Braun epilators are dermatologically tested & help reduce pain and gives smooth hair free skin for upto 4 weeks.

Diepsloot #Chess Players Enjoy Queen of Katwe #Movie @MontecasinoZA

Hi Guys,

30 children enrolled in the Tsogo Sun Moves for Life chess academy were recently treated to an outing to see Queen of Katwe, a Disney film about a 10-year-old girl, Phiona Mutesi, from Kampala, Uganda, whose life is completely changed by chess. The outing for the youngsters, from two Diepsloot schools – Reshomile and Muzomuhle primary schools – and six teachers, was arranged as part of Montecasino’s commitment to keeping them inspired by chess.

The Tsogo Sun Moves for Life chess programme operates nationally in 57 schools with about 24 000 participating learners, 569 educators, and 22 tutors from local communities, and is sponsored by eight of Tsogo Sun’s casinos. The programme in Diepsloot is sponsored by Montecasino and accommodates 3 791 learners from five primary schools.
Diepsloot #Chess Players Enjoy Queen of Katwe #Movie @MontecasinoZA
The Queen of Katwe screening was a reward for achievement for the selected children. “Queen of Katwe tells the story of the life of young girl who lives in a slum in Katwe and is taught to play chess by a local missionary. She goes on to become a Woman Candidate Master after exceptional performance at the World Chess Olympiads, totally against the odds. We wanted to inspire the children in our chess programme to work hard at their chess and to dream big,” says Glenn Joseph, GM of Montecasino. He adds that the children were thrilled with the exciting outing and all insisted that they would devote greater attention and energy to their chess classes.

The aim of the Tsogo Sun Moves for Life programme is to use chess as an education tool that helps to improve children’s mathematics, science and problem-solving skills. “Chess can make a difference to the cognitive and analytical abilities of youngsters through the mental discipline required in the game,” says Joseph. The Tsogo Sun Moves for Life programme links chess principles to life skills, mathematics, science and language – and works towards impacting the educational performance of as many children as possible, by unlocking their full mental and social capabilities.
Diepsloot #Chess Players Enjoy Queen of Katwe #Movie @MontecasinoZA
Queen of Katwe is directed by Mira Nair, written by William Wheeler, and stars David Oyelwo, Madina Nair, and Oscar winner Lupita Nyong’o, who visited Johannesburg for the premier. She plays Phiona’s mother in the movie. The film is described by a critic as a breath of fresh air. “Queen of Katwe inspires as it captivates, telling us a story we may have never heard about, but one we’ll probably never forget.”

Are You Drinking And Driving? #DriveDry #ThisIsMyStory #Diageo Campaign

Hi Guys,

With the festive season fast upon us and as thousands of South Africans gear up for holiday travel this December, Diageo South Africa has timeously launched its 2017 Drive Dry campaign – which aims to shock South Africans into thinking twice about getting behind the wheel drunk.

Drive Dry, previously known for its award-winning scare campaign “Papa Wag Vir Jou”, will be using the power of storytelling in 2017, to try and change South Africans’ behaviour towards drinking and driving.
Are You Drinking And Driving? #DriveDry #ThisIsMyStory #Diageo Campaign
At an event attended by government, stakeholders, media and celebrities, guests were shown the reality of drink driving by watching real stories of South Africans who have experienced loss, trauma, hurt and difficulty due to driving while under the influence – either due to their own actions or those of a loved-one or a stranger.

These brave individuals were captured on film, telling their stories and these will be made into a series of short clips to be shared with media, as well as on social media over the next year.

“Our overall goal is to impact and change people’s lives by using real stories to give the campaign resonance. We have also approached celebrity ambassadors who are passionate about driving dry to spread the message far and wide,” said Diageo SA’s Legal and Corporate Security Director Viwe Soga.

In January 2016, Transport Minister Dipuo Peters highlighted that the festive season’s road fatalities had increased by 14% with a total of 1755 fatalities from 1 December 2015 to 11 January 2016 – many of which are a direct consequence of alcohol abuse. According to the WHO Global Status Report for 2015, South Africa is ranked 23rd out of 50 African countries for the highest number of road deaths. The report also estimates that 7,8% of South Africa's Gross Domestic Product (GDP) is lost due to road traffic crashes. This lost revenue could be used to address South Africa's other social issues, such as lack of funding for tertiary students.

South Africans Against Drunk Driving (SADD), a non-profit organisation based in Pietermaritzberg, recommends solutions such as an increase in random alcohol testing, the establishment of specialised drink-driving courts so that offenders are tried and convicted within one month of the incident, as well as for every driver to be tested for alcohol or drugs at every crash scene.
Are You Drinking And Driving? #DriveDry #ThisIsMyStory #Diageo Campaign
“Our mission is to stop drink-driving, protect families from the trauma of losing loved ones and in doing so, to make a tangible difference to South Africans’ lives,” said Caro Smit, founder of SADD and guest speaker at the 2017 Drive Dry campaign launch event.

The Drive Dry video clips will be rolled out over the next year and used across various media platforms, as well as for visual content at Diageo branded and partner events, school visits as part of a drive to educate the youth and at tavern workshops.

“This is going to be an incredibly powerful campaign, and we are honoured that our storytellers have agreed to share their stories in the hope of changing someone else’s life. Responsibility, and looking after the communities in which we operate is key to Diageo’s business. Our brands are made with pride and are only to be enjoyed responsibly,” says Soga.

South Africans can follow the conversation, tell their own stories, watch the video clips, and share the Drive Dry message with friends and family on Facebook and Twitter, using the hashtag #ThisIsMyStory.

For a sneak peek of the mash-up video visit https://youtu.be/kkIrAUzJT8o. Visit Diageo’s global responsible drinking resource, www.DRINKiQ.com, for information, initiatives, and ways to share best practice.

Love thy neighbour…but don’t get caught! #ChatsworthStyle #KandasamysMovie @kandasamysmovie

Hi Guys,

From the producers of Hard to Get and Happiness is a Four Letter Word, comes the two-sided, family-engaged-comedy affair, KEEPING UP WITH THE KANDASAMY’S. The film will be released in cinemas on 3 March 2017. It is directed by Durban filmmaker, Jayan Moodley (White Gold) and produced by Helena Spring and the late Junaid Ahmed.

Described by Moodley as a “love letter to Chatsworth”, KEEPING UP WITH THE KANDASAMY’S was filmed on location in Chatsworth, Durban, South Africa, and stars Jailoshini Naidoo (Eastern Mosaic, Lotus FM) and Maeshni Naicker (Broken Promises) as the matriarchal rivals of neighbouring families, whose young adult children become romantically involved, and despite their best efforts to keep them apart, they are forced to acknowledge that in the end “love will always prevail.”

“Shanti Naidoo (Maeshni Naicker) is a typical Type-A personality. Always on the move, going out of her way to please people, and overcompensating for her perceived inadequacies by continually cooking up a storm in the kitchen. Her life would be just fine, except that her neighbour Jennifer Kandasamy (Jailoshini Naidoo), always seems to hold the upper hand.

When Jennifer realises her daughter Jodi (Mishqah Parthiephal) is in love with Shanti's son Prinesh (Madhushan Singh), she is determined to break them up. But in order to do that she will have to enlist her rival's help. Together the two women scheme and plot, recruit prospective partners and generally interfere with their kids wherever they can,” says Spring.

The cast also comprises, among others, Mishqah Parthiephal, Madhushan Singh, Mariam Bassa, Rajesh Gopie, Koobeshen Naidoo and Neil Govender.

KEEPING UP WITH THE KANDASAMY’S was produced in association with M-Net and the DTI, with distribution by Ster-Kinekor Entertainment.

@TheeLegacySA Provide The #Soundtrack To @SimbaChipsSA #SimbaMapha TVC

Hi Guys, 

The inaugural winners of The Sing Off SA, Durban-based Isicathamiya group, Thee legacy, have collaborated with the iconic South African heritage brand, Simba, by providing the sound track to the latest Simba Mapha TVC with their chart topping hit single Wena Wedwa (MusicCraftMAN Mix), as Simba chips celebrates 60 years. 

Watch the Simba Mapha TVC here: https://www.facebook.com/SimbaChips/videos/1295638113821298/

“The fun new TVC adds a special twist to the Simba Mapha story that South Africans have grown to recognise and emulate,’’ shares Natasha Singh, Marketing Head of Snacks at PepsiCo. “We are also very excited to announce that the TVC showcases an original, fresh, upbeat track from a local rising band. Wena Wedwa (MusicCraftMAN Mix) from Thee Legacy is the ideal backdrop to the Mapha narrative, adding contemporary local flavour to Simba’s rich brand story.’’
@TheeLegacySA Provide The #Soundtrack To @SimbaChipsSA #SimbaMapha TVC
South Africans were introduced to the Simba Mapha storyline in 2013 and the latest TVC builds on the success of this concept, reiterating the idea that “Some things are better when you Mapha”.

Thee Legacy’s collaboration with Simba comes shortly after being profiled by Apple Music globally as “Artists To Watch”. This opportunity provides Thee Legacy with a solid foundation to gain traction on the international stage.

Fast becoming the discovery of the year, Thee Legacy has had a strong presence on radio this year with their latest single, Wena Wedwa (MusicCraftMAN Mix), currently topping charts and on high rotation on radio stations such as Metro FM, Ukhozi FM and Thobela FM. This past week, Wena Wedwa (MusicCraftMAN Mix) featured at number #8 on the RAMS chart.

You can now hear Thee Legacy’s hit single, Wena Wedwa (MusicCraftMAN Mix), as the sound track to the Simba Mapha TVC which is centered on the joy of sharing. The word ‘Mapha’ is a South African phrase developed in the townships, born out of the humour of young kids meaning to share or to give. Thee Legacy’s Wena Wedwa (MusicCraftMAN Mix) is an appropriate soundtrack selection for this campaign as there is much love in the act of sharing.

“We have grown up on Simba chips and never imagined that one day we would collaborate with this iconic brand. We are both proud and humbled that our single Wena Wedwa (MusicCraftMAN Mix) was selected for the Simba Mapha TVC. We’re looking forward to having all South Africans see the Simba Mapha TVC and relate to the TVC through our music” expresses Thee Legacy.

Wena Wedwa (MusicCraftMAN Mix) can be found on Thee Legacy’s self-titled debut album out now in stores and all major digital platforms. Thee Legacy have crafted a body of work that represents a contemporary take on Isicathamiya for a new millennium – produced by RJ Benjamin and Sam Soweto (of The Soil fame).

Hi Guys,

The arrival of summer holidays usually sparks a migration between the big urban cities and the smaller rural and coastal regions as South Africans around the country head for home, the sea or the bush.

@BluBloodSA Brings #BeautifulCreatures Children Stage Show @EmperorsPalace

Hi Guys, 
 
Beautiful Creatures in association with Blu Blood are excited to announce the return of the award-winning children’s stage production, Beautiful Creatures, at the Theatre of Marcellus, Emperors Palace from the 8th to the 18th December 2016.

Following on the huge success of their shows in 2010 and 2011, this fun, educational and interactive 60-minute show is back by popular demand and features some of Beautiful Creatures’ most loved characters.

The musical tells the story of the shy and quiet Imvubu the Happiest Hippo and how he got to be so happy. We join him on his journey of self-discovery as he befriends Mafutha the Elephant, learns dance steps from Tallulah the Tortoise and finds his “inner roar” with the help of Lucas the Lazy Lion.
@BluBloodSA Brings #BeautifulCreatures Children Stage Show @EmperorsPalace
This popular South African children’s brand was created in 2004 by Alan Glass, Ed Jordan and Paul Choritz.

“Using the best session musicians, actors and singers, Beautiful Creatures prides itself on being uniquely South African with a positive global message,” says co-founder, Paul Choritz.

The last five years has seen them releasing seven albums which have achieved multi-platinum and gold album sales in South Africa, as well as four children’s books (their fifth book ‘Underwater Zoo’ will be released in 2017) and a series of educational toys. They have also received two SAMA nominations and received the Naledi Award for Best Children’s Production in 2010.

“In a world where parents and children have limited quality time, Beautiful Creature’s mission is to bring families together offering a uniquely South African brand with an educational and positive message,” adds Alan Glass.

The production is directed by esteemed director and actress, Gina Shmukler.

“Beautiful Creatures is a must for the whole family. There is a message in every single song. I think the whole world will fall in love with Beautiful Creatures once they see the stage show,” comments Ed Jordan.

Tickets cost R85 and are available through Computicket online (http://online.computicket.com/web/event/beautiful_creatures/1083202143) and various Computicket outlets.

Hi Guys,
 
The Predator Z301CT monitor has captured a big win leading up to CES 2017 with the “Best of Innovation” award, the #1 prize in the Computer Peripherals category.

The “Best of Innovation” award for the Predator Z301CT monitor means that the judges deemed it to be the most impressive technology in the computer peripherals category and that it scored higher than all other entries. The Predator Z301CT is the world’s first 21:9 curved monitor with eye-tracking functionality. The monitor’s eye-tracking technology adds to a gamer’s arsenal of control tools, helping them to intuitively aim, target and shoot faster than competitors who only have access to a keyboard and mouse.

@ASUS_za Republic of Gamers #ROG Launched GX800 #GamingLaptop

Hi Guys,

ASUS Republic of Gamers (ROG) announced GX800, a gaming laptop with the latest NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 1080 SLI graphics and an advanced version of the Hydro Overclocking System liquid-cooling module. The 18-inch GX800 is the first gaming laptop designed to deliver real 4K UHD gameplay. It features NVIDIA G-SYNC™ technology and supports leading virtual-reality (VR) headsets for super-smooth and stutter-free VR gaming. In addition, GX800 features the Mechanical Tactile Advanced Gaming (MechTAG) keyboard with programmable ROG Aura RGB LED effects for individual keys.
@ASUS_za Republic of Gamers #ROG Launched GX800 #GamingLaptop
NVIDIA SLI graphics and Hydro Overclocking System
ROG GX800’s NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 SLI graphics provides super-fast, silky-smooth gameplay and detailed gaming environments.

GX800 is paired with an advanced version of its predecessor’s Hydro Overclocking System to give it the cooling performance required for extreme overclocking of the processor and graphics cards. The Hydro Overclocking System helps boost GX800 clock frequencies from 3.2GHz to 4.2GHz. When overclocked, GX800 achieves a 3DMark Fire Strike Ultra score of 10395.

A ROG-proprietary connection between the Hydro Overclocking System and GX800 ensures coolant flows smoothly between the two without leaking. The coolant is pumped and circulated around the processor and graphics card, before it returns to the cooling module where two radiators help to dissipate heat. To cope with these demands, GX800 has two 330W power adapters.
@ASUS_za Republic of Gamers #ROG Launched GX800 #GamingLaptop
Designed for real 4K UHD gaming visuals
The 18-inch ROG GX800 is the world’s first gaming laptop to provide real 4K UHD gameplay for realistic, highly-detailed gaming worlds with faster and smoother frame rates. GX800 can run games at ‘Ultra’ graphics settings at frame rates averaging over 60fps.

In addition, the combination of NVIDIA SLI graphics and the Hydro Overclocking System ensures GX800 has the performance to deliver the very best VR gaming experiences. GX800 provides super-smooth, stutter-free VR visuals with frame rates exceeding 90fps. Featuring plug-and-play compatibility with leading VR headsets, GX800 is designed for immersive VR gaming.
@ASUS_za Republic of Gamers #ROG Launched GX800 #GamingLaptop
Accurate and responsive keystrokes
The MechTAG keyboard has mechanical switches for positive clicks and 2.5mm of key travel for accurate, tactile keystrokes. It incorporates 100 percent anti-ghosting with 30-key rollover to ensure that multi-keystroke commands are correctly logged — even when 30 keys are pressed simultaneously. In addition, ROG Aura RGB LED effects can be customized for each key, allowing gamers to configure different effects and colours for individual keys.

ASUS ROG GX800 will be available from February 2017 in South Africa Online from Evetech and DionWired (Note that it will be order on request) with a SRP of R129 999.00.
