What’s on this weekend…
You’ve more than likely seen the weather forecast for the weekend, so don’t let it dampen our spirits and instead pour our energy into this lineup of awesome events that are guaranteed to whet your palette! Yeah, okay… it’s going to rain…
They say diamonds are a girl’s best friend – and they would be right. And of course, diamonds aren’t just reserved for women who are married or engaged either! We’re all about supporting strong, independent women here at Sassy, and why shouldn’t an empowered and intelligent lady treat herself to a bit of bling? It feels even better wearing a piece of bespoke, beautiful jewellery when you know how hard you’ve worked for it. Wear those jewels with pride!
If you’re keen to reward your own success with something special, but don’t know where to start, why not check out the Ryder Diamonds Master Class on Wednesday, 22 June? You can try on diamonds, learn all the ins and outs about the different cuts, clarity and colour grades, and you’ll even get a tour of the workshop. Tuck in to some bubbly and nibbles while the experts give you insider tips – it’s all about brushing up on your knowledge so you can make an informed decision when you buy. And it’s great fun! Trust us, we’ve tried it, and it’s the perfect, fun little class to do with a group of girlfriends. Time to treat yo’self…
