• Sunflower Fund Gala Dinner

    Last week I was asked to be the Master of Ceremonies for The Annual Sunflowerfund Gala dinner. This event is  one of South Africa’s most glamorous charity events. Hosted in association with Medscheme, this year’s theme was the “Cuban Nights”.

    Shimmy Beach Club was the venue with their beach as the perfect welcome area. Everyone sipped on cocktails,watching the sunset, whilst International Singerr, Danielle Bitton added a cuban soundtrack.The decor and food was well planned, and had the perfect cuban flair to it, adding to the magic of this evening.It is always an honour to be asked to be the MC at this dinner. The Sunflower Fund aims to educate and recruit a viable source of well informed, potential bone marrow stem cell donors who are ethnically diverse, in an effort to save the lives of those needing a transplant when suffering from leukaemia and other life-threatening blood disorders. It also strives to maintain the associated donor records of the South African Bone Marrow Registry to worldwide standards.My outfit was a colourful number from Emma Brink, available from her Summer 2017 range. Which I paired with orange Steve Madden heels.I added a pink flower to my hair and matched it up with a pair of pink pearl floral earrings. My arm candy was my partner-Mike Fannin.I have to credit my beautiful tanned look to the team from Caribbean Tan. It’s a perfect way to achieve a natural looking tan without spending hours lying in the sun.  About three days before the event I went for a Caribbean spray tan, and on the day of the dinner I added a touch of their Caribbean Tan Shimmer Cream , when applied, it gave me a golden shimmery glow. Stacy-Robin – The beauty and fashion editor for Giraffe in the City was responsible for my beautiful make up look. Using a variety of Catrice Products.

    I only recently discovered that CATRICE says NO to testing on animals.
