2009 - The Year Ahead

Hello Friends
A new year has started and we are likely to all be feeling a bit odd with the promises, resolutions and financial pinch. This is the year to reign in the spending, but why not take the opportunity to focus on you, your home and your family? Less eating out and more entertaining at home or sharing a casual get together celebrating friendship.
This may result in a year filled with kindness, friendships and a stronger bond or connection with someone we care about. Over the next few months, I will be sharing some sensational ideas with you for entertaining at home. Why not set some time aside to ensure we get our lives in order first and make way for the coming year? This issue is dedicated to starting over with fresh ideas and resolutions in 2009.
For the most part, I’ve hit the food plan with a vengeance and we are so happy to announce the addition of a new special friend to the Starlicious team who will be sharing some incredible ideas and recipes with you. So log onto to find out what these are.

The Party is Over!Swinging back into 2009 with New Life

The new years' arrived and we are most of us back at work and rolling into the fast pace life we led last year. The party is over for most of us and its time to dump those calories and burn up the indulgences of a holiday past, before we become trapped in the same habits we need to break.
Here are some important tips for anyone keen to change their lifestyles and opt for a healthier year ahead.
Diet: A healthy life is 20% hard work and exercise and 80% diet. So be sure to check the calorie intake, read the ingredients and dietary information on the food you buy and make a firm decision to be healthy with your diet.
Exercise: Hit the gym, work up a sweat and start a programme with a trainer for some added commitment.
Monitor your progress and your food intake to assist you with your diet and your will power. This will assist you to keep track and ensure your progress. Keep a journal and records your highs, lows and your hiccups along the way.

FABULOUS FRIENDS : Edith Venter - Schwartz

Edith Venter (Excerpt - Oshun Books)
Edith Venter is a celebrity divorcee, mother, events organiser and fashionista. Known for her style and impeccable taste, she is a regular face in the society pages of local newspapers and magazines. She first came into the public eye as the Sunday Times Best Dressed Woman in 1989, but who is the private person behind the public persona, and why has Edith Venter remained an enduring and popular presence in the world celebrity when others have faded into obscurity?
Now, for the first time, readers are afforded a rare glimpse into the life of this South African style icon. This book will dispel the myth that rich, famous people have everything there way, or that money can buy happiness. From extreme wealth to near-bankruptcy, from happiness to despair and back again, Edith's story proves that the art of good living is about much more than a hefty bank balance. As inspiring, warm and funny woman as the woman herself, this book is a must-read for anyone who has ever wondered what goes on behind the gilded doors of the rich and famous.

Edith Venter was recently appointed to the new luxury lifestyle web portal Corporate Constellations as their new Marketing CEO for JHB. Their star studded launch was held at Summerplace in Hyde Park in JHB last week Wednesday and Starlicious have pinpointed themselves as potential service members and partners to this prestigious new company.

Craig Whitehead, our designer, will work closely with a number of the profile partners on the Corporate Constellations website , like Wetherlys and such to deliver an exciting office suite befitting the level and group image of this vibrant new company. Craig has worked closely with leading socialite and successful style icon, Edith Venter, the groups new Marketing Director for years, even on her own home. “Edith is simply the best to work for, she understands good taste and will not compromise her sense of style or her solid reputation in business. She will also not hesitate to recommend anyone she believes in and she is always generous enough to share the limelight.” says Craig Whitehead

On the 09 November 2009



Starlicious Lifestyle Events proudly played host at Shepstone Gardens, to the marriage union of Ian and Natalia Martens. Joined by family, celebrity friends and work colleagues, the radiant couple exchanged vows under the glass ceiling of an old Observatory chapel, standing ankle deep in rose petals. A delicately embroidered Duchess Satin gown by Julian ensured the bride looked every bit as regal as she truly was. Serenaded by the lively Jacques Lagesse, they were married and guests were treated to a delicious array of canap├ęs with a wine tasting and later a five course meal in the dining hall. Dining Tables were adorned with fresh imported peonies and soft pink roses. A romantic three tiered caked by fames couturier Franco Lambiase ensured the finishing touches to the toast before guests lit sky lanterns with wishes which they let into the night sky just before midnight.
