On the 10th of September, we hosted Pamper Mom Pretty at Sherbet Angel in Parkhurst.
Sherbet Angel was launched in 2011 by mom and daughter, Joanne Gardner and Lisa Rautenbach.
Sherbet Angel is conveniently located on 4th Avenue in Parkhurst; originally opened as a spot for new or expecting moms that felt “cozy and comfortable”. They are now, not only, the goto place for all pre and post-natal pampering but are also frequented by an eclectic mix of ladies and gents, including a couple of local celebrities. The spa is decorated to create that “home away from home” feeling with plush couches to lounge back in while getting a mani or pedi.
This year’s event in Johannesburg was a huge success!
Pamper Mom Pretty was an event I started in 2014, you can read about the event here.
It’s an event I created to bring moms together to relax, mingle and be introduced to different brands.
I’m truly blessed! I work with amazing brands and people who don’t even question me about the event and said yes immediately.
This event was about spoiling our moms and moms to be, I think our sponsors did a fabulous job at that. Each goodie bag was filled with products from sponsors who carefully chose the items for mom and baby. We even had raffle prizes worth thousands of rands!
A BIG THANK YOU TO:
Every mom who attended.
You made the event a success and because of you, I will keep doing what I am doing. To all our pregnant moms, I wish you a safe delivery and recovery. Remember I’m always here to chat about products and my experience.
My husband who is my pillar of strength.
My mom and cousin who helped me prepare for the event.
My AMAZING sponsors:
Without you, this event would not be successful. I appreciate each and every one of you and pray that your business grows from strength to strength.
