Cape Town #instamamameet – A day of fun and spoils

Saturday saw Cape Town host their very first #Instamamameet at the Backyard Cafe in Diep River.This sought after event was coverted by 20 Cape Town bloggers all eager to share the pre-Mothers day spoil.The attention to detail was the first thing I noticed as we were greeted by beautiful signage at the door.Inside we were lead to a small room decorated for the function as side tables groaned with goody bags and boxes holding the generosity of the brands that had sponsored this event.The beautiful tables, were almost too pretty to touch with floral place settings that complimented our feminine name tags.As soon as we were seated coffee orders were placed and platters of foods began to circulate.Delicious morsals of fruit kebabs, mushroom puffs, salmon bites and mini savory scones…each tastier than the one before.Once the introductions were done the guest speaker, Salome from Brush Salon spoke.Her story touched me deeply and you can read about that here.After this dynamic woman had finished a make up tutorial teaching us how to apply make up, the sweet treats began to arrive.Mouth watering chocolate brownies and miniature cup cakes.Our spoil for the morning was a facial buffet from Elixer Fusion and not being a spa type of person I wasn’t looking forward to this part of the event at all.This looked like a lot of work and a lot of products.Each of us had before us a mirror, bowl for water, headband, face towel, little gift and facial menu.We placed our headbands on and got to ready to treat our skin.One treatment after another and very soon I found I was enjoying the giggles with fellow bloggers and my face felt cleaner than it has in months.We worked through each step and soon came to the face mask. Each half of our face was a different mask. I think this is my favourite photo from the event.After we washed off the mask, added eye creams and other products I was shocked to see just how healthy my face looked.Throughout the event there was a series of random draws and I won a lovely bottle of Durbanville hills sparkling wine.And then it was time to grab our goody bags and head off home.A stunning box tied with lengths of gorgeous ribbon, personalised for each blogger.And a gift bag decorated with a laser cut keepsake coaster from Smudge-itAs a self confessed memory keeper, this little keepsake is one of my favourite items from the event.There were so many brands who contributed to this enjoyable event and while I can’t show them all here, I have unpacked them on Instagram.Below are the items we received…..And some useful vouchersThank you to the brands for spoiling us and the organisers for a wonderful event.
