One year, six workshops, and I couldn’t have asked for a better showstopper than this. The last 13 months has been an incredible adventure, with 108 (yes) women joining me for this special experience. I’m finished, empty and I’ve given it my all, but my heart is full in knowing that all of these women left with something valuable. I made new friends, connected creatives, and truly feel like this has become a community of professional women that are going places!
Three of these six workshops were held over the last two months, and to be honest, it was exhausting. I traveled to Durban, then Gauteng, and ended it off here in the Western Cape last week. For this last workshop I was very honoured to have been invited by a brand spanking new workshops venue in Stellenbosch to host their maiden event. The Styling Shed is PERFECT, and a super stylish space for creative workshops or small events. The physical space is beautifully decorated, spacious and clean, and there’s also only positive things to say about their service. Please do check them out if you have ideas for a workshop of your own, or if you’re just interested in creative workshops in general.
Women traveled from far and wide (Namibia and Kathu included) to attend this last workshop, and of all the groups I’ve ever had these girls just immediately fell in love with each other. The tight and positive group energy was something that everybody commented about afterwards. I was also spoiled with beautiful gifts from Carien, Anica and Suzanne and just wanted to say thank you again I feel so humbled to know that you felt touched by the experience. We also celebrated two birthdays on the same day during the workshop, and were treated to some surprise cupcakes by our LOVELY caterer and friend The Food Fox.
Taking about the catering, I really just need to make a special mention here, because Ilse is seriously just one of the most incredible women. THANK YOU Ilse for consistently giving this workshop your best. People were ecstatic about the food once again, and I could not have asked for better. Also, thanks so much to Leipzig Floral Design for their beautiful creations, and to Jesse from Lulu and Marula for being our guest speaker on copywriting. Also, thanks so much to the goodie bag sponsors (Zana, Maria Magdalena Atelier and Prestwich Collection) for all the treats, I loved collaborating with you and my guests felt so spoilt! Then lastly, to my trusted assistant and design partner Fiona, you are a talented young lady and I’m so incredibly grateful for all the support you’ve given me over the last months. She’s also the one responsible for these lovely pictures, so give her a shout if you ever need a photographer or assistant.
Then, for all of you that wanted to attend but could not make it for these last three, I have some pretty special news. The Pink Party course will be going digital in 2017!!! Keep you eyes peeled for news on this development in January, however (do not fear) I will still be hosting another Pink Party next year in May.
