52 lessons for 52 weeks: Week 18 – UNLEARN something

Yes, you did read the title correctly. NOT Learn something rather UNLEARN something.

It’s taken forever to post on this series again. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve had some great lessons in between BUT life happens too.

You are never too old to learn something new is a saying that is ALL too familiar. But what about unlearning something. Perhaps you have some habits that you need to change.

Did you know that it takes 21 days to form a habit and 90 days to form a lifestyle?

Perhaps like me, you need some motivation to break free from old habits. Why not make it attractive and reward yourself when you reached your goal! A reward doesn’t have to be fancy or outrageous. Just something for you from You.

Not everyone needs to UNLEARN something. Some people actually still need to LEARN something. Hopefully, they’ll learn the right thing! And spare themselves the trouble of having to UNLEARN something.

What would you like to UNLEARN?

MORE ABOUT BURN THE FLOOR
The original concept of Burn The Floor grew from an electric display of ballroom and Latin dancing at Sir Elton John’s 50th birthday party in London, March 1997. There, producer Harley Medcalf discovered the ballroom dance world and its charismatic people, with their deep intensity, commitment, discipline, burning passion and total love of the ballroom art form.
Initially, Harley’s idea of a new theatrical ballroom production sent shock waves through the ballroom dancing establishment. For decades, ballroom competitions had been performed behind closed doors, as a pastime for the privileged. And well before reality television embraced it with such shows as Dancing with The Stars and Strictly Come Dancing. 

Burn The Floor opened in England in 1999. A decade later, after visiting thirty countries and over one hundred and sixty cities worldwide, it achieved its long standing dream, to bring Ballroom to Broadway – appearing at the Longacre Theatre in New York, followed by two hugely successful seasons in London’s West.

Are you a fan of dancing?

Luxury & Magic at Cine Prestige – revamped at The Grove Mall Ster Kinekor

Flash back to last week Friday:

Friday 17 May 2019, The Grove Ster-Kinekor launched its newly revamped Cine Prestige theatre, treating guests to a pre-screening of action thriller John Wick Chapter 3: Parabellum – and all of Cine Prestige’s signature comfort. Dude and I reveled at the opportunity of an afternoon “date” without the kids 🙂 And bonus we got to watch an adult movie. We were hosted by Cine Prestige.

Luxury meets the magic of the big screen

Guests to The Grove Ster-Kinekor can now savour Cine Prestige’s premium experience, where luxury meets the magic of the big screen. Featuring a cosy, private lounge, and a full bar offering with a range of drinks from wine, beer, cocktails, and hot drinks, they can expect greater moments and at their greatest. Guests can also enjoy gourmet snack platters, and a selection of the finest desserts all served in the comfort of a fully reclining leather seat – making Cine Prestige a must for all those who enjoy movies with a touch of luxury.

As a family of four, a cinema experience is an expensive experience. I would like more than just an average popcorn and soda. Cine Prestige caters for everyone. Whether you want a regular popcorn and soda or like me, I had a mini blackforest cake and steaming coffee whilst watching the movie, they have it on the menu. This is definitely a step up experience for the average movie goer. And so WORTH it! It’s like sitting at home but having someone bring along snacks and drinks so that YOU can enjoy your movie.

A reflection of its people

I’m sure that you can relate to the saying, “Home is where the heart is…” But here’s one to think about, “a home is a reflection of its people“. My home is my sanctuary, my safe place. My happy place. I’m a sucker for spending time at home. Home is where I’m happiest. My home definitely is a reflection of my spirited family. From our small passage like kitchen, p.s. our home is older than us 🙂 and we are still doing renovations , to our neat and tidy, well after the kids go to bed and before they wake up in the morning it’s very neat and tidy, living areas in our home.

Our home is not picture perfect. We have some DIY projects that are still in the pipeline. Even some that have been started but not completed. But this is our home. This is us. This house that we call a home is a reflection of US.

 Today’s home is a reflection of its people, gone is the need to look like the Joneses.  Our homes are authentically us, stripped of pretence.  Product transparency is also a growing trend; we shop with a higher conscience focusing on wellness and sustainability, wanting to know the person or story behind our purchase.

This year the Pretoria HOMEMAKERS Expo  brings you the stories and the best products in home improvement.  The Expo is where you can come face-to-face with the craftspeople or knowledgeable experts who provide visitors with the best understanding of the product.

The show helps to expand dialogue between homeowners and suppliers. It offers unique ways for you to see, touch, feel and compare products and services.
