Die Glam Guru - Oranje is 'n prettige kleur wat ons afskeep
Die Glam Guru weet waarvan hy praat en as jy ooit gewonder het of oranje vir jou kan werk, verduidelik hy hoekom dit een van sy gunstelling kleure is. Hannon Bothma deel sy wenke vir jou klerekas en verklap 'n paar geheime oor die kleur oranje. Het jy geweet as jy aandag wil trek dan is oranje beslis 'n goeie keuse. Wil jy die partytjie nuwe lewe gee? Maak dan seker jy het iets oranje aan. Luister na sy wenke in die podcast hier onder.
 
 
 
As jy nog nie oranje in jou klerekas wil probeer nie, probeer gerus een van die koraal kleur lipstiffies.
 
 
 
Of in die winter is dit maklik om 'n helder oranje met donkerder kleure soos grys of swart te kombineer.

Throwback Thursday - Spirit in the sky
Yes we all remember singing our hearts out in 2002 as the sexy dimples, stutter and spikey hair charmed us during UK Pop Idol and his rendition of “Unchained Melody”. But what happened to Gareth Gates?
 
 
 
At the height of his career in 2002/2003 he was probably one the most famous celebs in the UK. Sadly fame took him on a rough journey of parties, girls and late nights. This tarnished his image and when his second album in 2004 failed to be a chart success – he decided to leave the pop music industry. He also took a 2 year break. In 2008 he divorced
his wife and has only recently started rebuilding his career.
 
 
 
However, today I take you back in time to when he was still a sweet 19 year old. In 2003 he had a hit with the Kumars singing Spirit in the sky.The proceeds of the song went to charity. But after 2003 he disappeared from the music industry. After patching up his image he featured in many West End productions and recently
featured in the UK’s Dancing on Ice.
 
 
 
This year will see him tour with a band called “5th Story”, which formed as a result of a UK reality show called “The Reunion”. The series sees the reunion of many bands from the late 1990’s and early 2000’s such as Five, 911, Atomic Kitten, B*Witched, Blue,Liberty X and A1. All these these bands then joined forces and will be touring the UK towards the end of the year, Gareth Gates is part of the group “5th Story” which consists of 4 other
lead singers from 4 of these bands.
 
 
On the 12th of July he will be turning 30 and we can only hope that he would consider returning to pop music.

Mommy Matters debate about child pornography - Video
Nowadays social media has revolutionized the way we communicate and share information with each other. Parents will often share pictures of their children with family members across the world through social media platforms like Facebook or Instagram. But is there a danger?
 
This debate was sparked by NPA adv Bonnie Currie-Gamwo who allegedly cautioned parents against uploading naked pictures of their children on social media sites as they could be prosecuted for child porn. This is a very serious statement and one that can have severe consequences.
 
I was joined in studio by the following guests:
 
Advocate Inez Bezuidenhout, Director of the University of the Free State Law Clinic, which in addition to  providing free legal advice to qualifying people,  also collaborates and cooperates with all stakeholders regarding socio-economic and legal issues. Bezuidenhout also lectures at the university and serves on the executive committee of the Association of University Legal Aid Institutions (AULAI).
 
Annemarie Coetzee, social worker for Childline FS and Child Welfare Bloemfontein, stationed at the Tshepong-Thuthuzela Care Centre. Coetzee has 22-years of experience as a social worker and regularly conducts child abuse screening assessments, trauma assessments of victims of crime, crisis intervention, therapeutic intervention and court preparation.
 
OFM news' senior journalist, Sabrina Dean.
 
Via telephone: Dr Ian Ellefson, Deputy Director of the University of Johannesburg’s Centre for Cyber Security and also senior lecturer and deputy head of department of computer science at UJ. Take a listen to his advice on securing your social media platforms at home in the podcast below.
 
Lionel Squires, a convicted pedophile sentenced to five years in prison in 2003. Squires was first molested at age 8 by older boys in the back of a bus. On arrival in prison, he realized there wasn’t really an active rehabilitation programme and initiated Pedostop. In his own words, the aim of Pedostop is to rehabilitate people like him.
 
Here is what he wrote: “I am not a monster or freak of nature. There are a lot of people like me roaming about undetected, causing a lot of damage to our society.  “I know what I was and tried to stop on my own. I couldn’t do it alone and felt like freak, but now I know it is possible. Enough support and the correct therapy can change a person.”
 
 
To report child abuse call the following hotline 0800 148 148 or visit the following site: http://www.fpbprochild.org.za/

It's #THROWBACKTHURSDAY - All about us
Playing you the songs that disappeared, the songs that will bring back memories you almost forgot about! It's #THROWBACKTHURSDAY.
 
 
 
The young Russian duo t.A.T.u. were very controversial with their debut album “200km/h in the wrong lane”. Yes you remember Julia Volkova and Lena Katina. Their Russian name is actually "Taty" (Tatu) which sounds like the English word "tattoo", it is also a shortening hint to the Russian phrase meaning "This girl loves that girl".
 
For the release of their first English-language album, they decided to go by t.A.T.u., using uppercase letters and periods to distinguish themselves from an already existing Australian band, Tatu.
 
They rose to fame in July 2002, when Blender magazine praised the group by saying "We have seen the future of rock & roll ... to say you've never seen or heard anything quite like it is a colossal understatement." t.A.T.u. were then heralded by The Face magazine as "The hottest popstars in the world right now."
 
In February 2014 the duo trended on social media sites with #tatucomeback but the duo have denied any reunion rumours.
 
A memory that stands out for me is the 1999 classic - 10 things I hate about you!
 
 
 
Take a listen to Kat's moving poem from the film!

The Wedding Planner - Great "Save the Date" ideas
In today’s fast-pace busy world, it has become harder and harder to coordinate everyone’s dates and times. It has thus become more important than ever for a bride to send out a “Save the date” reminder. This allows guests to keep their wedding date open and still gives the bride enough time to have her wedding invites designed and sent out.
 
 
 
I spoke to Carla Thomson from Secret Diary Designs about some fresh ideas for a “Save the date” invite and she also shares some trends that may interest brides who are planning their wedding at the moment. Take a listen to her tips below. Here are some of the "Save the date" designs her team came up with for some of their recent clients. I know it will inspire you :)
