Last week St Yves Beach Club in Camps Bay finally opened its doors for the summer. To celebrate, they held a super luxurious partytjie that I attended with an old friend Jax.
We were both impressed by how fab the place looked; minimalistic and spacious with a killer view of the Atlantic.
After a quick SKYY vodka shot that ran through their monogrammed ice sculpture…
…we got stuck into delish canapes like pizza and chicken skewers served by mooi-looking waitresses who also doled out a river of Pongraz. The best bit, however, was the two big big ass bowls of oysters that kept on getting refilled the moment they were emptied (which happened pretty much every twenty minutes thanks to me. I’m a total slet when it comes to oystertjies and have wound up poisoned so many times as a result but still just can’t stop eating them!)
Celeb-wise, I ran into Top Billing’s Jeannie D for all of two seconds and heared that Expresso’s Liezel van der Westhuizen was also out and about. Alas, I didn’t nab any piccies as I was way too sucked into a skinner session with le fashion peeps; bloggers Ritza and Elrico from Luxo, Jasna from Fashion Jazz and celeb stylist Marilize de Clercq. Allison from Skinny Bitches in the Making was there too and if you click on over here you read her write up too. (Sorry All, I didn’t use the shot with you in it ‘cos my arm looked totally chubtastic and no amount of clever cropping could save it!)
Thank you St Yves for a seriously rocking party. You’ve certainly set the tone for a sizzling hot summer; I’m now looking forward to popping in for another one as the season rolls out.
