Magnum Pink & Black Event

Last week I was fortunate to attend the Magnum Pink and Black launch at Shimmy Beach Club.  After a very dreary start to the morning, the afternoon turned rather pleasant, just perfect for a beach venue!

It was such a fun filled event, with a nail bar, cook-off and the very first twitter auction. I even had the honour of meeting Janez, Jeannie D, Bonang to mention a few, of the awesome celebs who graced the events with their presence.

The launch was to introduce two gorgeous flavours to the Magnum range, namely  the light Pearly Pink pomegranate flavoured ice cream , and a more Daring Black Chocolate covered espresso flavoured ice cream.

As a person who loves new and innovative ideas, I was especially impressed with the 5 minute twitter auction. One had to tweet @magnumsa as many times in the 5 minute time period and #theprize. This was just a taste of the actual twitter auction happening on the 23 November with amazing prizes up for grabs. For more information click here.

Amina, Nabilah and Naeema from The Jam Jar ( who unfortunately finished work a tad late) ensured that the afternoon was a memorable. I love the fact that new friendships can be so comfortable and easy, unpretentious and warm. Thank you ladies for a wonderful afternoon, complete with Glamcam and Magnum ice cream on tap!

An added bonus was having the chance to meet some fellow bloggers, and unfortunately there were some I didn’t get to meet :-(

Enjoy the stunning photos taken by Amina Ebrahim (who, by the way, won the first twitter auction! Yay for fast fingers!!)

What an idyllic setting

No shortage of good food…
