Last week I attended a blogger event, ”Summer In the City”, hosted by Stiletto J, aka Jeanne Cupido, from Stiletto Adventures. Unfortunately the weather was anything but summery but hey-ho, that did not stop me from donning a pair of super stylish heels and venturing off. The event was held at a rather popular Cape Town spot, called I Love My Laundry, which is a place I have wanted to visit for a while now. It is a laundry with a difference, they serve Dim Sum and coffee and also have weekly fondue evenings – as I said somewhat different and yes they also do laundry!
We were all treated to infused Primitiv Vodka shots – my favourite was the Dandelion Infusion – it was super yummy! Gourmet muesli was also on offer, with refreshing mango puree, decadent dates and zingy ginger to wake up your taste buds.
The very pretty underwear on display is from La Ninna Nanna (Which is Italian for “lullaby”) and is available to purchase from I Love My Laundry.
I was pretty much in shoe heaven as there were works of shoe-art on display, courtesy of Europa Art Shoes. There were also amazing prizes on offer from the various sponsors, which included Essie, Incoco, Medi-heel, La Ninna Nanna, and Europa Art – I was lucky enough to win a voucher from the Europa Shoes – a girl can never have too many pairs of shoes!
After a bit of mingling, we were inspired by three amazing entrepreneurs who came to speak to us about their products. They were Diane from Bisousoleil, Keren from Bellabaci and Shantelle from Medi-heel, all great companies and more importantly Proudly South African! Each person received a wonderful goodie bag with products from these three companies and yummy chocolate treats from CocoaFair!
All in all it was a great evening, a chance to meet fellow bloggers and put faces to a few Twitter handles. Thanks Jeanne for organising it and I Love My Laundry for hosting us!
