Over two hundred women joined together this past Women’s Day at Shimmy Beach Club to celebrate their empowered inner queen. Inspirational talks, delicious cocktails, live music and good food; combined with the incredible spirit of feminine unity, encompassed this more-than-memorable occasion set in Cape Town’s premium water-side venue.

Arriving to uplifting beats played by DJ Rene, guests enjoyed delectable sushi and welcome canapes that circulated throughout the venue. With an abundance of cocktail options, guests had their pick of Chambord Kir Royal, Tia Maria, Disaronno Sour cocktails, Graham Beck MCC or a zero alcohol option of The Duchess drink. Furthermore, guests were able to indulge in a few luxury brand pop-up stores, namely Lolaromon, Alessia Boutique, Beach Cult, Kokodakota, Pure Romance, Olivia Lincoln Leather Handbags, Gypsy Collection Jewellery and Princess D.

This one-of-a-kind event, hosted by KFM’s charismatic Mamohau Seseane, celebrated the multi-faceted modern female with an afternoon of inspiring talks by experts in their field. Each speaker came with a message to inspire, motivate and empower. Together they aimed at touching on each aspect that makes up an empowered woman’s life.

The topics ranged from health, beauty and fitness, the power of positivity and confidence, to personal style, finance and productivity. Speakers included: Skin Renewal’s aesthetic specialist, Dr Shahra Sattar; health and fitness guru and owner of Warrior Warehouse, Emma Jooste; personal styling team, Beautifullyou; NLP practitioner Nepheritie Jade; confidence coach, Abigail K, and ending with financial advisor and also the ‘Empower Me’ founder - Janine Brink. 

Set in Cape Town’s most picturesque seaside venue, guests enjoyed a two-course lunch while overlooking the glistening ocean. The perfect sunshine weather complimented the all-white feminine outfits which sparkled with a royal touch of gold.

All the women, including special guests, media and celebrity attendees, shone like queens at the event.

Guests were spoilt with the chance to win in the luxury lucky-draws. Over and above this they all went home with goodie-bags filled with gifts and vouchers from Dr Organic, the Red Gallery, Versace, Pure Romance, BOS ice tea, Choose Me Intimates, MUD make-up, Beach Cult, Zando, Chocolate by Tomes, Jekyll & Hide, Beautifullyou, Shimmy, Fairlady, True Love and Sarie magazines.

The highlight of this grand occasion is that R10,000.00 was raised through ticket sales by ‘Empower Me’ in aid of their ‘Princess D Menstrual Cup’ outreach programme. Menstrual cups and other female necessities will be donated to underprivileged girls who are missing on average 20% of their school year due to being unable to afford basic sanitary necessities.
