So I know I said I'd be taking a break from blogging this month, but I think this story is really worth Sharing. A few weeks back I was taken by suprise when I received an email from my favourite PR lady Ms Katie Coetzee to cover an event at Good Hope fm studios and also to talk on air & judge the in studio contest that took place.
Since this was the first time I would ever be doing something like this, I thought it would be a stella idea to get my good friend and co blogger Yumna Involved seeing that we're both kind of new to these things and it would really be a great oppurtunity for the both of us. I was abit overly excited (not going to lie) and nervous as well, but we both knew it was an oppurtunity we had to take and run with.
The event was a collaboration between Good hope fm, The Princess Project as well as amazing shoe brand Madison-footwear South Africa. The event was attended by 10-15 lucky ladies who were given a very informative lesson on how to walk on heels by the lovely Ms Irit Noble. Some of them could walk, Some of them were abit unstable but @MsNoble really made them leave that night #HIGHONHEELS and more confident with out a doubt. This had to be the case after radio DJ Ayanda Tini suprised them all with a live pep talk from the african Mother herself 'Yvonne Chaka Chaka'. All of this was not only to have a good time for no reason though, There actually was a really good course behind the hole evening. Each lucky lady was given a brand new pair of Madison Heels and in return had to swop a pair of their heels for someone less fortunate. I know the saying goes "A girl can never have enough shoes" but knowing there are young girls out their not even able to say those words really stings. These shoes, The shoes you no longer wear can make a young lady feel really special on her matric dance night and this is the aim of the wonderful Princess Project. Go ahead girls, If ther's a pair of shoes or a ball gown you might not wear any longer, Drop them off at the studio and make someone else feel like a princess for the night.
All in all, I am truley blessed to have been involved in such an inspiring event/project and also being able to meet all the well dressed ladies, Goodhope fm Dj's as well as the master minds behind the oh so trendy Madison Shoes (what a jolly bunch). The event ofcourse was stacked with foods, sweet treats and the most amazing shoes on display.
Enjoy a few pictures I manged to source and please watch the short videos I created at the event (below), where you can see us live on air and also the girls getting #HIGHONHEELS.
Untill next time
