My BMW Polo Experience
Delayed as it may be, it would be a huge mistake not to blog my experience at the BMW Polo, it was just too good a day.
BMW contacted me and 3 other bloggers to run the #BMWTakeMeToThePolo Competition where our twitter followers had to tell us why they deserved to go with us to the POLO. The prize included not only a VIP experience at the Polo but our winners would also be driven to the event by BMW.
After lots and lots of entries, I chose my winner based on the following entry:
It was just too cute I had to choose it… The lucky winner was Yelanda, who attended with Vuyi as her date.
A week before the event BMW treated us by taking me and the girls to Hyde Park Corner to look for what we would wear to the BMW International Polo Series.
Misha Coetzee selected her outfit from Country Road, Kirsty Bisset from Lui Jo, and I got mine from Hip Hop. We then ended the day with a light supper at Life restaurant.
Milli (left) wore something from her shop, check out her blog HERE.

Remember my blog about What Her Boyfriend Wore?
Well, this is the couple!
With my date Melissa, my winner and her date.
oh and yes, there was a game of POLO
South Africa was playing against India, we won but I can’t remember the score. I actually decided I don’t like POLO it’s not the kind of game I would pay money to go watch… This was during the singing of the two countries’ national anthem. Hayi the Indian anthem… lemme not say anything.
I didn’take pictures really, I was there to just have fun but some of the celebs I spotted included Roland Schoeman and Gerry Rantseli who wore a dress 2 decades young. I was disappointed. Pearl Thusi was there, she looked really good, the girl has gorgeous legs.
The highlight of my day was DEFINITELY meeting Wendy Luhabe, one of my favourite people in the world. You should have seen my excitement when I spotted her and hubby Mbazima Shilowa arriving. I finally managed to get my groupie moment, and was even more chuffed when she remembered me from an email conversation a few months ago. She even made me take off the shades so she could see my face, really awesome woman… now I wait for my moment with Khanyi Dhlomo and I can die in peace.
I also got to pose with our glory boy, Olympic Gold medalist Chad Le Clos, who must be one of the sweetest people in the world.
It was a Sports event so the Minister, Mbaks on Mbaks was there.

This couple won Best Dressed and took home a R20 000 Hyde Park shopping voucher.
Thank you to BMW SA for a well organised and classy day of luxury and another thank you for not inviting the usual faces we see everywhere.. the guests were quite refreshing. It was my first time at the POLO, and we had a good time.
