Bloggers Who Bless

Last weekend I was privileged enough to be invited to the 'Bloggers Who Bless' meeting. 
Basically it's a group of bloggers who get together to motivate and inspire one another!
We met at Park Cafe and had an absolutely gorgeous high tea. Sasha had organised it all so wonderfully, with the most amazing little goodie bags for each of us.
It was so great to finally meet some of the faces I have been following for so long on twitter! It was such a lovely group of young ladies! 

Shan / @youbabyandi / You Baby and I (MY BUDDY)

 Luzanne / @PinkPeonies / Pink Peonies (ABSENT)

Heather / @heatherdeBruin / Bloggers Who Bless (FOUNDER)

We were each given a 'Buddy' for the month and have to send encouraging msgs to each other as well as advise and support one another. Such a lovely idea and my buddy, Shan, is just great!! We were also asked to choose a few ladies to write a little note of encouragement to and at the end of our meeting we swapped notes. 

We were all very spoilt with all the things we received in our goodie bags, I'd like to thank all of the sponsors for treating us to such wonderful products. 



Original cocktails

Ralo Cosmetics

Oh So Heavenly

Beauty Factory

And Five O'Clock Tea.

I'm so grateful to be a part of something so special, we aren't just faceless bloggers to each other anymore, we're friends! I can't wait to see all my blogging sisters, "Blisters"? again at the next meeting! 

You're all amazing!

Love, always,

My name, Fawn, isn't really your standard english name. My grandfather's nickname was 'Buck' and so my parents decided to name me after him. A baby deer/buck, is a Fawn. He was the most amazing man and I am so proud to have been named after him. I'm not a 'normal' person so I think a unique name like 'Fawn' is quite fitting.  Here is the definition of my name -

And this is the definition according to Urban Dictionary. There were a lot of other dodgy meanings too, haha!

If you've never heard of Urban Dictionary, go check it out, it's rather funny! You can see what you name means as well as all kind of other stuff!

Urban Dictionary

So, now that we all know what my name means and how it came about, I'm sure you can see the link between 'Fawn' and 'Deer Delights'. Originally I wanted to call my blog 'Deer Diary' but that domain was taken and it turns out it is a deer hunting site, haha!

However, I do have a 'Deer Diary' tab so not all is lost!

Have a great weekend everybody,

First Work Event

As you know, I'm working at an events company. I've just been doing admin type stuff and recently have started working on the company's social media profile. Yesterday though, I got to go help out at the event we organised at The Maslow Hotel in Sandton. 

I arrived early to find the Miss SA 2014 finalists relaxing in the reception area. They're all so skinny and I felt pretty good that I wasn't the skinniest person in the room for a change =) After attempting not to stare at their beauty and gorgeous outfits I decided to give myself a little tour...

I started at the pool which absolutely blew me away. It makes the most stunning backdrop for The Lacuna Bistro where you can sit and enjoy a delicious meal in this peaceful environment. The bistro has also introduced Sunday Gourmet Braais where you can enjoy a gourmet braai meal and a glass of bubbly for R250. It's on every Sunday from 1- 5pm and there are different bands each week to provide live entertainment. I think I will definitely have to add this to my to do list!

After I'd finished exploring the beautiful hotel it was time to get to work. We were organising the Sales Summit and had to check guests in at the reception area we had set up.

It involved a lot of meet and greets as well as running around making sure everything ran smoothly. The work you do in the events industry isn't glamorous but as a people person who loves being in 'pretty' places I absolutely loved it.

I'm still finding my feet in the working world and events is definitely a top runner for the industry I'd like to be in.

However, I can't shake the feeling that I am destined for a lot more in this world. I'm not a 'normal' person and I will never be truly happy attempting to fit into a 'normal' way of life. I don't want to be normal, I have been through more than most people could ever comprehend and I didn't get through it all just to have an ordinary life.

I want to give back, I want to live life to the absolute fullest and I want to embrace my differences. I think we all should!

But for now, I'm happy and enjoying my job. 

Have a lovely weekend!
