21 October 2014


This past Saturday I attended a Cuppa For Cansa event organized by Viveshnie from Madame Macaron and held at the
 #Hashtag restaurant Durban, the theme for the tea was 
Pink, Black & Bling.

As I am sure you all are aware that worldwide, October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, but it also brings greater awareness to many other cancers. Unfortunately this year to date I have lost a relative, a friend and three acquaintances to a variety of cancers. I am not sure if cancer is on the increase or if it's the age group that I now find myself in (mid 50's), but the big C word is making an appearance more in my life, so I was only too happy to contribute to an event of this kind.
The afternoon was well attended by ladies wearing lots of pink, which as you know is my "fave" colour and I think most people brought both an open heart and purse as requested on the invite. 

The following Guest speakers were lined up for the afternoon

Linda from the Durban branch of the Cancer Association of SA
Dr. Nishani Maharaj – Aesthetic Makeover Studio

Products and gift vouchers were kindly donated for the raffles and the auction, which is always a fun way to raise money, and how could a good time not be had when delicious

 sweet baked goodies were on offer courtesy of 

and yummy savoury eats, courtesy of 

and as if that was not enough sweetie and packets were supplied by

Every guest went away with a goodie bag
and it really was a great afternoon and more importantly it was all for a good cause.

At least one in 29 South African women will get breast cancer!
However early detection means that there are more treatment options available
for a better chance of survival.
