August is for the beautiful ladies! While any day makes for a great chance to celebrate the phenomenal women in your life, National Women’s Day on August 9th gives you one more reason to do just that.
Women are the epitome of strength, love, sacrifice and courage. The role of women in today’s world has changed significantly and for the better. Empowering women creates positive impressions and can help society to grow and develop at a faster pace. From professionals, mothers, and partners to sisters, confidantes, housewives or CEOs – women can take on as many or as few roles as they desire, and the key is that it’s their choice.
This Women’s Month, let’s empower, honour, and celebrate the beauty and strength of South African women in our circles. Remember to support businesses owned by women, donate old clothes to girls’ orphanages, advocate for gender equality in your workplace, and celebrate female colleagues, creators, artists, and authors.
Make this month memorable – whether that means attending Women’s Day events, booking a special getaway, going to the spa, or simply grabbing coffee with your favourite ladies, the fabulous females deserve to be treated like queens.
Here are a few beautiful places you can go to celebrate Women’s Month. There’s something for the beachside bombshells, the city sisters, dam-sels in this dress and the country girls!
Throw on your beach wrap, sunnies and sandals and soak up the sun while taking golden hour selfies. Book a relaxing spa day and indulge in luxurious treatments that’ll soothe your mind, body, and soul. Skip the cooking and enjoy delicious meals at the onsite restaurant and sundowners with magnificent ocean views.
Spend your days mooching around vibey streets, discovering quaint cafés, exquisite galleries, and stunning photo spots with the gorgeous mountain as a backdrop. Stop at Jooma or Mount Sierra Coffee Shop for a refreshing pressed juice or your caffeine fix. Don’t forget to block out at least one full day for La Vita Spa to get your glam on!
Damsels in De-Stress
Head to Harties Dam and stay at Magalies Park for the best bush break complete with the facilities of your dreams. From heated swimming pools, volleyball and private jetty to tennis courts, casino and poolside bar, your getaway will be simply unforgettable.
After receiving incredible full body massages, enjoy bubbly in the Jacuzzi to relax your mind and muscles. Hop in the steam room and sauna for the ultimate indulgence and book a hair appointment to look and feel your best. Then put on your best dress and go for dinner and drinks at Pica Pau!
Go horseback riding around the resort, picnic in the mountains, be amazed at the surreal sunsets and enjoy dinner at drinks at a cosy restaurant. Take time out for yourself with a hot stone massage and mani-pedi at La Vita Spa. Fall in love with the peace and quiet that nature offers.
To all the wonderful women out there: Shine on and continue breaking barriers and making valuable contributions to the world. You are bold, beautiful, compassionate, and caring. Keep inspiring the people around you!
Wishing you a very happy Women’s Month!
Feminism isn’t about making women strong. Women are already strong. It’s about changing the way the world perceives that strength.
