Belle of the ball
Here’s the truth folks - preparing for your daughter’s matric ball is` sooooo much more “hard work” than preparing for your son’s (I did this last year as well)…………………..but here’s the real truth – I LOVED EVERY MINUTE OF IT! Planning, preparing or calling vendors, walking around in a number of malls looking for a specific colour or item or making a list of things to do – I could go on and on and on and….. but our plans just fell into place and we were so blessed to find everything we needed and the best service providers ever.
Nails, brows and hair were the responsibility of the best salon in town – better known as Be-Dazzle Hair and Beauty Salon. (Thank you Octavia and Flora for bedazzling Jordan).
Make-up artist Nadia Rorich weaved her magic on an already gorgeous canvas which was perfectly coordinated with Jordan’s dress. A pale pink, sweetheart neckline, princess style dress made her blissfully happy and in fact it was the only dress she tried on. She loved the simplicity and elegance, but more importantly how wonderful she felt in it (yes a dress can do that to you – pretty much the same with shoes).
Of course I turned to my fellow Mommy Mallers of the facebook group Mommy Mall Cape Town for further assistance and I have to give a shout-out to all of them for their excellent service.
Fairlight Events: for the crockery rental (awesome service and great rates)
Munierah’s Cakes: for the very pretty cupcakes
Angel Kisses: for the customised biscuits - perfectly executed and as per request

Thank you Mompreneurs for assisting us on on a very special day. Your service was amazing and appreciated.
Darling Jordan – we know you enjoyed this special occassion……..and we know how long these 12 years were for you. As Dr. Seuss said “You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose.” You have plenty of choices and there are countless directions you can head into, but whatever you do, leave a little sparkle wherever you go. #stayfabulous
