Women’s Day 2012

Women are trained to accept men as the greater sex. Through awareness, education and life’s struggles woman have learned to rise above the battle of the sexes and be free from their own fear. We have great woman leaders, guiding the future, inspiring and loving.

Every year on August 9 we celebrate national Women’s day, to show appreciation to the entire woman circle in your life. The wives. The girlfriends. The aunts. The nieces. The grand-something. The young ones.  It’s a day of acknowledgement for what woman have achieved through the ages and what we are still busy building. This public holiday remembers an eventful day in South Africa’s history in 1965.

This year show appreciation to the inspiring woman in your life by treating them and admitting their accomplishments.

We’ve put together a few things for you to take in consideration when thinking of ways to treat your giver of life, but still supporting woman who have achieved plentiful.

As many of you know Thursday is the start of Decorex at Gallagher Convention Centre; SA’s biggest décor and design display covering charming colours, shapes and silhouettes. With a lot of great things to look forward to, take a moment and acknowledge the woman designers in the likes of Kirsty Zoutendyk, Lisa Firer, Wendy McLachlan, Heather Moore and Lise Butler with Amanda Haupt. These are a few exceptional designers with a lot going for them.

Secondly is a lady who has for years had a stall at Hazelwood food market selling mojitos and chilli poppers, which are pretty damn good! It’s been a passion of her to personally own a shop and finally with hard work and determination the dream came true.  ‘Oooo la la’ will be opening on Thursday 9 August for the first time at Greenlynn Village Centre. Strawberries and champagne will be available for her guest with many more delicious treats. Be sure to drop by Thursday or any other day for a delicacy…

Another inspiring lady shares life, laughter and love through her art. She’s the owner, designer and manufacturer of Crazy Sexy Cool Wall Decals. She likes the humbler things in life and believes anyone should be able to easily decorate and brighten their home. Her wall decals enhance personal mood, character and lifestyle all in a snap of fingers.


For those that are, and those that are growing up to be; identify yourself, know who you are, what you believe in and where you want to go or be. Be proud, be a woman of the world.
