“I am Beautiful’ ends on a High Note!

Four months of ‘I am Beautiful’ events culminated on National Women’s Day the 9.8.2012
at Avontuur Estate Restaurant.

With a fabulous line up of fragrance, photography, motivation and numerology, our guests speakers wowed guests
with their passion and knowledge.
Guests were spoilt with goodie bags to the value of R1051 and the combined value of the sponsored gifts
totaled a massive R7400!


The biggest and most lavish event up to date and it was enjoyed from the first glass of Avontuur M.C.C
to the last bite of delicious brunch,
with much chatting, listening and laughing in between.

What a fantastic ‘I am Beautiful’ season this has been. Our guest speakers; Marida Steyn, Francesca Fergusson,
Diana Rankin, Aleit, Michelle Ainslie,
Yasmin Kowalski , Verity, Cherie Cantrell, Terry de Vries, Zara Faria,
Bettina Moss and Liz Calvert were worth their weight in gold and had us laughing, learning,
enquiring and even crying.
What an unforgettable line up.

This year our sponsors out did themselves and our guests were treated to spa treatments, massages,
jewellery, wine, oils and balsamic vinegars,
a BMW for the week end,
photography software, flowers, fragrances, spices, creams, hair care products,
workshops, books, music and more.

To end off we wanted to share these beautiful words by two of our guests; 

‘I just want to say I was really blown away! I was part of one off the sponser teams at I Am Beautiful. I had so much fun, I’ve learnt so much, it really was an amazing experience for me. I’ve won something at one of the lucky draws, it felt like Xmas! 🙂 it’s the first time I’ve won something, I’m a giving person and it was nice to get something back! I will definitly attend again! Thank you so much! Mwha xx ” posted on FB by Wilna Ueckermann.

“Thank you for a FANTASTIC “I am Beautiful” morning at Avontuur on Tuesday.  I don’t think I have enjoyed myself more in a long while.  I know the amount of hard work you put into these kind of mornings but the warmth in your hearts and the generosity of spirit made for very happy guests and a happy, warm atmosphere – it was so tangible.  Well done to both of you!  I cannot begin to tell you how much I enjoyed Aleit and his team and in fact all your speakers were so inspiring.  I am about to book a course with Yasmin and possibly Michelle!  Lots of Love and kudos to both of you for making Avontuur a restaurant with such an incredible heart and soul.’ Sandy xxxx


Some incredible moments captured.

We look forward to 2013 and another fantastic ‘I am Beautiful’ season!
