{Fashion} My first Georgie.B Pop Up Shop

Welcome back to me!!!! Joking.. no seriously! I am very happy to be back!
Firstly I want to say welcome to the new improved "Our Journey to Everywhere" blog all thanks to the wonderful Megan Wait and my dear friend Mariaan Swanepoel.

Let's get back to what this post is all about. I had the amazing opportunity to host the first of MANY Georgie.B Pop up Shops in Johannesburg. As you have read before, my very talented friend Christine Barrett is the brains behind this beautiful brand.

It all started with Cedric and myself working very hard to get everything ready for the big day, from building clothing rails, to building wooden frames for the banners to cutting out logo's to put on every open available space. Saturday arrived and the ladies started arriving one by one. My excitement and nerves grew bigger by each second.
To keep it short, the event turned out to be a big success with lots of clothes being tried on and loads of laughs.

I want to thank Christine for putting her brand in my hands and trusting me enough to promote it as best I can. Then I also want to thank my great boyfriend for all his hard work and for playing barman with his wingman Chris, and my mother and sister for all your help before the event with the finishing touches, Sally for taking time out of her Saturday morning to bake like 50 mouthwatering cupcakes, and then my beautiful friend Mariaan Swanepoel for the designing of the invites and for taking these stunning photo's. Last but not least, I want to say thank you to each and every of the ladies that came to show their support. I could not have done it without any of you.

I had so much fun hosting this and cannot wait to host the next one...details to follow soon!
Hope to see you all and more there next time!
