ELVIS BLUE: OPTICS WENNERS Kari Hoogendijk van Stellenbosch Lihandie Swart van Potchefstroom Julle CDs is op pad!

Noem die naam Anna-Mart van der Merwe en mense is gewoonlik in ‘n effense beswymeling – dié geliefde en veelsydige (en beeldskone) SuidAfrikaanse aktrise dwing bewondering af vir wat sy ookal aanpak – met flieks vanaf Die Storie van Klara Viljee tot die splinternuwe Dis Koue Kos, Skat, is sy ‘n wenner by haar gehore. Ons het gesels met Anna-Mart op pad na ‘n repetisie ‘n week voor die opening van haar nuwe toneelstuk,The Painted Rocks at Revolver Creek, in Kaapstad, in die lieflike Lust halfpad tussen Paarl en Franschhoek, waar sy deesdae woon. V: Vertel ons meer van die nuwe toneelstuk?

A: Ek repeteer vir ‘n ongelooflike verhoogstuk, The Painted Rocks at Revolver Creek, deur Athol Fugard. Die stuk open die einde van die maand in die historiese Fugardteater in Distrik 6 in Kaapstad. Die rol was ‘n droom, omdat Athol, op 84 jaar oud, self die regie behartig. Dit is ‘n ongelooflike voorreg en ervaring. Ek het verlede jaar in sy stuk People Are Living There in die Markteater in Johannesburg opgetree, en toe hierdie geleentheid kom om onder sy regie te werk, was dit amper net te goed om waar te wees!

V: Hoe vergelyk die stuk met Dis Koue Kos, Skat?

A: Dis Koue Kos, Skat was ‘n wonderlike ervaring – vir ‘n vyftig-plusser om die hoofrol in ‘n romatiese komedie te speel, was nogal ‘n ding! Ek was verstom oor die jonger generasie akteurs se totaal ander visuele verwysingraamwerke, en het baie by hulle geleer. Die fliek word die einde van die maand landwyd uitgereik.

V: Jy het sepiebekendheid verwerf toe 7de Laan begin het. Films, sepies, verhoog – wat is jou gunsteling?

A: Sjoe, ja – my eerste TV-film was gedoen voor daar iets soos ‘n Suid-Afrikaanse sepie Page 2

bestaan het! Ek dink die verhoog sal moet eerste kom, as ek sou moes kies. Daar is net iets aan die proses en dinamika – ook met die gehoor – wat dit ‘n magic manier maak om te act. Ek sou nogal graag in Europa deel van ‘n vaste teatergeselskap wou wees. Ek dink dit moet ‘n fantasiese ervaring wees om te groei as verhoogakteur in so ‘n setup.

V: Was drama ‘n roeping?

A: Dit was, maar eers laat in my skoolloopbaan. Ek het eers tale op Stellenbosch geswot, waar ek Vrydaemiddae dramaklasse by Babs Laker geloop het, en toe drama by UCT. Daarna het ek by die destydse Truk aangesluit en my verhoogloopbaan begin … en dit was dit.

V: Wat doen jy om te ontspan?

A: O, ek stap graag – die gevoel van aarde onder my voete is my redding. As ‘n gebore en getoë Vredendaller, is ek na aan die aarde in my leefwyse.

V: Gunstelingmusiek?

A: Eerste in my kop: Sade. Middeleeuse musiek. Jazz.

V: Gunstelingboek?

nutty!!

@jennymorrischef

I have always been a fan of almonds – nutty toasted almonds tossed into salads or consumed by the handful as a snack, made into almond meal and used to bake cookies and cakes. Almonds have many wonderful nutritional benefits, as they are very nutrient rich. I had an almond tree in my garden and I couldn’t wait for it to go into flower. I adored the fragrant pink and white flowers that covered the tree. I love that they are delicately flavoured and versatile and available all year round. I recently discovered almond milk at the Good Food & Wine Show in Johannesburg and decided to do some experimenting with it. I use both the sweetened and unsweetened almond milk. You can use it in making quiches, blinis, flapjacks, bread-andbutter pudding, ricotta, hot cakes, French toast, white sauce, smoothies, ice-cream, rice pudding and Panacotta, and also for soaking oats and mixing into scrambled eggs, and a lot more – it is even really yummy in tea and coffee! It can also be a substitute for dairy milk for those who have a lactose intolerance. Almond milk is also suitable for people following a vegan diet. As almond milk contains no cholesterol, it is also recommended for people suffering from heart disease or high cholesterol, and the unsweetened variety has a low glycaemic index (GI) with no added sugar, making it a suitable option for health conscious consumers. Almond milk combines the superfood health benefits of almonds with a delicious taste. It is packed with calcium as well as vitamin D and E to support strong bones and healthy skin, making it easier to manage a healthy lifestyle. I’m happy to see that it is GMO free, with no additives, MSG or preservatives. People are definitely paying more attention to their health, and so we should.

Raspberry and almond smoothie Serves 2 • 2 ½ cups almond milk (sweetened or unsweetened) • 4 ice cubes • 1 tbls runny honey • ¾ cup fresh or frozen raspberries • 1 tbls ground almonds • Place all the ingredients into liquidiser and blitz till smooth. • Pour into tall glasses and enjoy. Tip: you can strain the smoothie before you serve it. © Jenny Morris 2016

MESSY MASCARA

Mad Max actress Rosie HuntingtonWhitely proves that even a basic khaki shirt can be hot property.

This major mascara nono is now a DO SO!

For years, we’ve been told that clumpy mascara is a big bad and we’ve been used to formulas that keep lashes looking full but natural. But now, we’re looking back to the ‘60s icons like Twiggy and Jean Shrimpton, and it’s hey hello to whacky way-out wild lashes. The spidery clumpy look is so on trend that Maybelline has launched Colossal Chaotic Lash, R134.95, which has a thicker specialty formula to ensure you get messy mascara and your lashes are way out of control. So it’s a case of the messier the better. Like you’ve partied until the sun came up! How do you nail this look? Coat your lashes with the mascara, wiggling the wand horizontally from roots to ends on your top lashes, and then swiping it vertically to cover your lower lashes. Don’t worry about blobs and bits, that’s what it’s all about!

1. DO accessorise. Amp up the army --- wear simple stacked metallic jewellery which adds some bling but is not overly girly-girly. Go for a smaller cross-body bag and opt for high heels or a pair of ballet flats instead of flat, chunky boots. 2. DON’T wear it head-to-toe. Camo is such a vibey and versatile print and looks great whether it’s pants or a top or whatever, but if you don’t want to look like Saving Private Ryan going AWOL, limit yourself to one camo piece at a time. 3. DO add color. Although these army fatigue shades work so well with black, white, and other naturals, go further and pair them with bright neon tones to give them more street cred. 4. DON’T mix it with animal print. Think about it --- they look very similar worn together so it’s way too busy. And you don’t want any hunting associations, either! 5. DO wear it with denim Camo is really edgy when worn with washed-out and distressed denim. Load on some checks and a bit of leather and you’ve got your M*A*S*H look all sorted.

Go for gold --give your camo an Olympic style shot of glamour with a trendy gold satin bomber jacket, R499, H & M. Khaki scarf, R 80, street markets.

Girl’s cropped shirt, R229, H & M.

Who knew camo could be this cute? Mega model Bella Hadid does her thing in a swing dress and high heel boots.

EASY EYELINER

Yay! At last, there’s a new eyeliner that makes it easy for fumble fingers to draw a proper line without wobbling all over the place. Maybelline’s new marvel, Master Precise Curvy™ Liquid Eyeliner, R 139.99, with a curve-hugging tip lets you line your eyelids in a wink. Use the flat side for a thick line and then use the tip to trace a trendy curved wing and a fine line along the lower lid. Bingo! You’ve Page 4 got it, AWSUM babe. NEWS JULY 2016

Health & Wellbeing 8 HEALTHY EATING GOALS Make half your plate fruits and vegetables: Choose red, orange, and dark-green vegetables like tomatoes, sweet potatoes, and broccoli, along with other vegetables for your meals. Add fruit to meals as part of main or side dishes or as dessert. The more colourful you make your plate, the more likely you are to get the vitamins, minerals, and fibre your body needs to be healthy. Make half the grains you eat whole grains: An easy way to eat more whole grains is to switch from refined grain food to wholegrain food, for example by eating wholewheat bread instead of white bread. Read the ingredients list and choose products that list wholegrain ingredients first. Look for things like whole wheat, brown rice, bulgur, buckwheat, oatmeal, rolled oats, quinoa or wild rice. Switch to fat-free or low-fat (1%) milk: Both have the same amount of calcium and other essential nutrients as whole milk, but fewer calories and less saturated fat. Choose a variety of lean protein foods: Meat, poultry, seafood, dry beans or peas, eggs, nuts and seeds are considered part of the protein foods

group. Select leaner cuts of ground beef (where the label says 90% lean or higher), turkey breast, or chicken breast. Compare sodium in foods: Use the nutrition facts label to choose lower sodium versions of foods like soup, bread and frozen meals. Select canned foods labeled “low sodium,” “reduced sodium,” or “no salt added.” Drink water instead of sugary drinks: Cut calories by drinking water or unsweetened beverages. Soda, energy drinks and sports drinks are a major source of added sugar and calories in diets. Try adding a slice of lemon, lime or watermelon or a splash of 100% juice to your glass of water if you want some flavor. Eat some seafood: Seafood includes fish (such as salmon, tuna and trout) and shellfish (such as crab, mussels and oysters). Seafood has protein, minerals and omega-3 fatty acids (heart-healthy fat). Adults should try to eat at least eight ounces a week of a variety of seafood. Children can eat smaller amounts of seafood, too. Cut back on solid fats: Eat fewer foods that contain solid fats. The major sources of such foods are cakes, cookies and

Bestmed’s You’ve Got the Power Challenge!

Does your school have the power to take on the challenge? Launched last year with 63 schools across the country, ‘We’ve Got the Power Campaign’ has now expanded. This year, healthy living will be demonstrated not only by learners, but their families too. This campaign will run from 1 August up until 30 September 2016. Sasja la Grange, Marketing and Communications Manager at Bestmed says, “Following on the success of last year’s pilot campaign, we have once again identified 63 schools across the country that will be participating in this year’s campaign. The teams are expected to showcase the benefits of healthy living by creating unique, cool and fun music videos. The campaign is both educational and rewarding. We have awesome prizes up for winners, and these include cash prizes for runnersup and other spot prizes. The overall winning school will, over and above its cash prize, receive a MUSIC CONCERT featuring Richard Stirton, Gavin Edwards, Almur Marais and Jeremy Olivier from The Voice SA.” You’ve Got the Power campaign challenge underpins Bestmed’s focus on preventative healthcare, which is validated by its wellness pillars of Be Active, Be

Safe, Be Nutri-wise, Be Fin-fit and Be Happy. The campaign challenge inspires scholars and their families to incorporate these pillars into their daily lives, and demonstrate it in the music videos. “Who says you cannot be healthy and have fun? We received encouraging feedback from last year’s launch campaign where schools learnt quite a bit about healthy lifestyle activities and enjoyed the process. We are committed to continue educating children about the importance of living a healthy lifestyle in all possible ways we can,” adds la Grange. In last year’s challenge, the schools created a music video based on Jeremy Loop’s songs and this year the music videos will be based on an upbeat song composed by Bestmed. The children will be able to sing or lip-sync the song. The videos can include choreography and fun dance moves that are cool, energetic and happy. With the aim of encouraging children to not only practise healthy lifestyle activities at school but also at home, this year Bestmed is including families to take

part in the challenge. la Grange cites, “Students spend their time both at school and at home therefore we would like them to continue practising their healthy lifestyle activities in all aspects of their lives. We also want to encourage their families to do the same.” “We look forward to receiving awesome music videos, and good luck to everyone,” concludes la Grange. You’ve Got the Power Challenge To become part of the challenge, visit www.ygtp.co.za for more information. Students are required to create a music video based on Bestmed’s song and demonstrate how healthy living can make for a better life within the school and family context. Teachers and families can also participate in the video as the aim is for the whole school to have fun. Once the video is completed, it can be uploaded on the site before the competition closes on 30 September 2016. Bestmed will announce the winners on 24 October 2016.

This tour is a tradition and something every u/13 child looked forward to. Reeds op Donderdagmiddag het ons hokkiespanne teen Milkwood Primary meegeding om op te warm vir hul groot toernooi die volgende dag by Laerskool Park. By hierdie toernooi neem 16 verskillende spanne deel. On Saturday it was the turn of the rugby and netball to take part in the Park 7’s day. Hard fought matches were played. Our rugby boys excelled and took the honours in the B-division and were runners-up in the A-division. Sondag was ons rusdag en ons het lekker gaan roei en “paddle boat” naby Knysna. Dit het die seer lywe lekker kans gegee om te rus! On Monday we were on the road again to Oudtshoorn. After visits to an ostrich farm and Cango Wildlife, we competed against Van Rheede Primary. We played very well. Na ‘n besoek aan die Dias-museum en ‘n lekker middagete in die hawe, was Laerskool Park ons volgende opponente op Dinsdag, 26 Julie 2016. Dit was ‘n geweldige suksesvolle dag op die sportveld vir Laerskool Brackenfell. Our tour was drawing to an end with our last matches on Wednesday against GeorgeSuid. Hard fought matches were played and we enjoyed the competition. That evening it was time to pack up and clean up to get ready for our journey back to Brackenfell the following morning.

Stellenberg skenk vir Mandeladag Annika Carstens en Marné van Butzelaar, gr. 11-leerders van die Hoërskool Stellenberg, het vir die leerders, ouers en gemeenskap die geleentheid geskep om hul 67 minute op Mandeladag af te staan aan bloedskenkings en haarskenkings vir kankerpasiënte. Annika se ma het kanker gehad en Marné se oupa is in 2015 aan kanker oorlede. Hierdie twee leerders wou juis daarom die leerders en gemeenskap van Stellenberg bewus maak van kanker en watter verskil hul skenkings kan maak. Hulle het CANSA genader om ‘n “Shavathon” by Stellenberg te hou.

Western Province Blood Transfusion Service (WPBTS) het ook die geleentheid gebied vir bloedskenkings. Anika en Marné het ook vir KFM en Expresso Morning Show op SABC3 genader vir die bewusmaking van hul 67 minute bydrae vir Mandeladag. Marné is verstom hoeveel meisies bereid was om hul lang hare af te sny en vir pruike te skenk en Annika sê: “Dit was ‘n voorreg om so ‘n geleentheid te skep en om te sien hoe die gemeenskap die behoefte het om ander te help.” WPBTS het leerders genooi om opleiding te ontvang om gereelde bloedskenkgeleenthede te organiseer.

ATKV-Applous 2016 Die Stellenberg Meisiekoor onder leiding van Andre van der Merwe is op Saterdag, 6 Augustus 2016 vir die 14de keer as die algehele wenner van die Nasionale ATKVApplouskompetisie in die Kruiskerk in Stellenbosch aangewys.
