Shine Strong Women’s Day High Tea with CNA

Michelle Obama once said: “Do not bring people in your life who weigh you down. And trust your instincts … good relationships feel good. They feel right. They don’t hurt. They’re not painful. That’s not just with somebody you want to marry, but it’s with the friends that you choose. It’s with the people you surround yourselves with.”

This week I’ve been feeling a bit overwhelmed. I have tried to avoid all the negativity in the blogging community but then ended up dealing with a few moms who think it is okay to bash me on social media. Blogging comes with a lot of responsibility – I unfortunately cannot handle the back-end of things myself because I have no idea about SEO or WordPress plugins. We had a hiccup which I’ve dealt with but it seems like saying sorry isn’t enough to some people.

Blogging has made me realize that not everyone will be your friend and you will always have someone who is going to disagree and pick on you. It’s a lot like bullying. I’ve always been weak at this, I used to let people walk all over me but today I’m done!



I don’t attend many women’s day/month events but this one stood out for me – maybe it’s because of the way that I have been feeling lately. CNA is sponsoring the Shine Strong Women’s Day High Tea event hosted by Good Housekeeping SA which aims to celebrate all the strong women in our lives.

I am so excited that I was given the opportunity to share this amazing event with you. I truly hope that this becomes a yearly event where women from all walks of life can get together and celebrate womanhood.

You will get to enjoy a delicious high tea while being inspired by guest speaker Lucilla Booyzen.

    I try to stay away from the toxic people, but it’s just so hard to do. It’s such a relief once you’ve done that. This sounds like a great event.

    Such a great way to celebrate a holiday that should matter to us all! I hope all the women that can legally vote WILL vote this year! 🙂

      This sounds like it could be a worthy event. I’ll have to catch one closer to me at a later date.
