This was one of those events that I immediately regretted not taking my "big camera"with me. (I usually take my proper camera with me to most events). Instead these photos are taken from my cellphone as I thought I wouldn't need my camera and could take a break from taking photos for at least one event.. of all the events why had i picked this one? ... Silly me!

So with that out of the way - please excuse the quality of these photos, I am sorry.. next time.

O Magazine in South Africa turns 10- yay!
The event was held at the Tablebay Hotel at the V & A Waterfront, Cape Town. As you can see in the pic above everyone got a pink goodie bag to take home filled in true Oprah style with nice things to touch and hold. Thanks Oprah Magazine :)

I love sparkly things and couldn't resist taking a pic of the chandeliers... I wander if one of these will fit in my lounge, probably not!  Anyway...

We had a lovely lunch which lasted all afternoon with talking (speeches and poetry) , entertainment (singing), eating and chatting in between.  The food comprised of:

Grilled Vegetable Terrine
Karoo Lamb Rack
Vegetarian Dish
O's 10th Birthday Cake

I opted for the vegetarian option for lunch which was seemed to be a mushroom type of lasagne which was very creamy and delicious. Many people with the lamb exclaimed how delicious my dish looked and wished they could have some. I didn't share - it was yummy.

Dessert was the very pretty and pink 10th birthday cake with sparkly jewels. It was so girly it just made me smile. *sigh* - if only cake looked like this every day. 

Congrats to the Oprah magazine team on their 10th birthday! now for the teen years ;)

NOTE: I was invited to this event and enjoyed a relaxing afternoon with food and entertainment thanks to Oprah magazine SA. All opinions are my own. Thanks O mag SA
