On Saturday I attended a gorgeous event hosted by Rain Africa at Makaranga Lodge.
Makaranga is breathtaking and is defo a must visit. Gorgeous grounds and even a Japanese Garden which Megan and I walked through before the event.
Our hosts for the day were owners of the Gateway store Yusuf and Ryan and all the way from Cape Town, Tanya and Ronel.
Durban bloggers were gathered together to be introduced to the Rain team and to learn more about their amazing range of Handmade products. As a blogger/storyteller, I love the stories behind a range. We were told of the humble beginings of Rain by Bev Missing and the business was created to create job opportunities. The touching stories of the workers touched me knowing regardless that there are ordinary people out there doing extraordinary things.
Treats and pampering were the order of the day with Ronel providing divine hand massages. As it was super hot, I was spritzed on my face with the Facial Rehydrator in Kalahari Melon. This cooled me down and has great benefits to the skin from rich in antioxidants to promoting suppleness and elasticity. A highlight of the day was seeing my blogging friends Michelle(@Ordinary_Misfit), Nicola (NicolaLMeyer), Faeema(fayinthemaze) and Inge(Inge_Loker). Its always fun to attend events knowing your friends will be there.
Tracey from Tsonga joined the Rain event and told us about their beautifully hand crafted leather goods. We each were given a sandle to sew :/ but trust me I don’t think I will be taking up that hobby anytime soon.

- No products are tested on animals.
- No children are used as child labour.
- They belong to the World Fair Trade Organisation.
- Endorsed by Beauty without cruelty.
