Update: Images from the Girls’ Fun Day Out at Melrose Arch
How often do you treat yourself? Probably not enough. That’s why you’re invited to a special day of eats, talks, and pampering – just for you and the girls! It’s that time of year again! Gather your girlfriends and make your way to Melrose Arch in Joburg for a day of spoils at the annual – and the unmissable – Essentials reader event.
Be inspired by guest speakers who will be sharing expert advice on health and wellness, fashion styling, DIY decor, and food ideas for your family.
Pamper yourself at the pop-up beauty stations, where you can get your make-up touched up by MUD Studio, and be treated to a mini-manicure from Sorbet. You’ll also be able to go for a style assessment from Tweak ‘n Style, and stock up on health and wellness products from Bloom Lifestyle.
And you and the gals won’t go hungry – or thirsty – on the day. Each ticket will come with a complimentary food option from Sushi Burrito & Co and free drinks like refreshing flavoured sparkling water from Seltzer, as well as wine from Boland, bubbly and fruit juice. Plus, there are loads of prizes to be WON!
We’ll also be supporting an animal charity on the day, and ask guests to bring a donation (such as dog food, toys, blankets, collars, leashes or treats), which will be delivered to the shelter after the event.
So, get your girlfriends to clear their schedules on Saturday 25 August 2018 – tickets are limited to 100 ladies, so book now via caxtonevents.co.za; you don’t want to miss out! Especially because everyone gets a free, fab goodie bag to take home.
