about me

My photo
Married to Nick for 13 years, with 2 children; Sabrina - 12 and Dominic - 11. I am a girlfriend through and through in that I love girly things and anything that celebrates the essence of being a woman. I love vintage, shabby chic, the country and try my best to do my bit for the environment. SO yes...we have 3 bins in our house and try our best to recycle! I believe that with everything in life, the closer we stick to nature, the better off we'll be. I would love to have a balance in life, but have learnt that balance is not always possible, so strive for significance instead, in the hopes that that will be just as meaningful, and the rest will hopefully follow.

Cinderella ..let down her golden hair..or was that Rapunzel??

Cinderella (that's me people...work with me here!?) went to the ball on Friday, and had a ball indeed! To say that the ladies High Tea was a girlfriend affair, and the best fun I've had in ages, is the understatement of the century!
As some of you may remember, I got invited, by a somewhat unexpected source, to an event that can only be described as a GIRLFRIENDS DREEEEAAAM. Needless to say, I arrived at the tea, feeling like Cinderella, who….bugger the prince charming (OK I’m thinking modern day Cinderella here hey!)…. fell in love with the CUPCAKES!!! One look at those cupcakes and the d├ęcor, and it was love at first sight! My jaw dropped! Did they know I was coming, I mean really, I could NOT have planned it better, with me in mind, if I tried! And after me saying that my dress was such a "sex in the city" dress, one of the first sentences the guest speaker uttered included the girls from...you guessed it....SEX IN THE CITY………., and wait for it….their dresses!!…and how they shop! Now we were even speaking the same language!!!!! It was all too much! …sigh…all I needed was a dose of ABBA, a pair of white, wedged heeled bling boots, and I would have been complete!
The event itself was awesome, with speakers, fashion shows, goodie bags and prizes for all 270 women who attended this event, of which 2 of the sponsors were Mums Mail and Sanlam. There was beautiful soft draping, FAIRY LIGHTS!!!, and each table had a unique centrepiece, which was EXQUISITE! The goodie bags were awesome, and by 14h00 Cinderella did not want to leave the hall, and I suspect, had ABBA been playing, she would definitely have had to be escorted from the building..LOL!
The pics were taking on my cellphone so don't really do justice.
