Girls just want…a weekend away!

Around Bayley

A weekend away, a weekend of pampering and food and music – sounds like absolute bliss doesn’t it?

That is exactly what it was for Molly, Bronte, Fiona and Savannah as they packed their bags and headed to our Asling Street respite house for the weekend.

The weekend started with a meditation session on Friday night to ensure that all of the ladies were relaxed and ready to enjoy the rest of the activities over the weekend. Bayley House staff member Cindy guided the ladies through a meditation with soothing music which allowed them to settle in for the pamper weekend. Cindy also shared Reiki energy during the meditation, to assist with creating a sense of peace, calm and wellbeing. This was then followed by face masks, foot spas, manicures and hair treatments! The evening ended with pizza, popcorn and a movie. Sounds like a perfect Friday night!

Saturday was a day of getting hair, make up and outfits ready, in anticipation of the afternoon photoshoot! The ladies headed out into the sunshine of the back garden where they posed over drinks and put on a show for the camera. As you can see from the photos, the amount of fun they were having was only surpassed by how good they all looked.

A big thank you must go out to the house staff who spent many hours learning hairstyles and following make up tutorials. Thanks also to the staff behind the scenes who planned and helped to pull off this weekend of luxury. Donations from Chemist Warehouse in Brighton and Coles Bay Street also helped to make the weekend possible.
