Now that spring has officially sprung, we’ve been soaking up some sunshine and are loving the upbeat vibes that warmer weather brings.
Speaking of good vibes, the Cresta Lifestyle Fair, going down until 14 October, is the place to be for having a blast with your besties, kids, or any of your loved ones. Every GLAMOUR girl is sure to find something she loves, no matter what her hobbies and interests. Here are the activities that different GLAMOUR girls can indulge in, at this action-packed fair in Cresta Shopping Centre.
The IG influencer
Ever wanted to be on the cover of GLAMOUR? Well, now’s your chance to be on your very own, personalised cover of the magazine. Step into the life-sized photo booth outside Levi’s on the upper level, and strike an Insta-worthy pose, so that you take a picture showing yourself on the cover.
Want more photo ops? On Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays, head to the Seaside 3D Trick Art activation, just outside Edgars on the upper level. You’ll walk away with a cool photo print-out, on the house! What’s more, you could win a sought-after summer beach hamper, courtesy of Cresta Shopping Centre, if you post your pictures on Facebook and Instagram. Remember to include the hashtag #CrestaLifestyleFair!
We all love a good bargain, right? And, we could never say no to ice cream, especially on a scorching hot day. So, satisfy your sweet tooth and boost your mood by making your way to Unicorn Ice Cream Land, in the food court on the upper level. Every Saturday and Sunday, the first 100 customers will get their ice cream for FREE, if they’ve spent R200 or more at any store in the centre. The next 400 customers will get a 50% discount!
Now that the sun’s out, you’ve got every excuse to invite your friends over for an epic outdoor party. Get tons of ideas for making it an event to remember, at the Life’s a Beach Party display, outside Woolworths on the lower level. You’ll get to see all the hottest items of the season, available at various stores in the centre. Plus, you could score a Cresta Shopping Centre voucher to the value of R5 000, so that you can spoil yourself with some luxurious retail therapy.
If you’re throwing a party, you’ve got to show off your moves. You’ll grab everyone’s attention on the dance floor if you get down at the Cresta Summer Salsa Adult Dance Classes. These are hosted by the pros from the Johannesburg Academy for Theatre Arts (JATA), every Friday from 6 pm to 7 pm, and every Saturday from 5:30 pm to 6:30 pm. Book your spot for one of these FREE sessions, here.
If you’re obsessed with discovering the latest style trends and spend hours scrolling through fashion blogs, you can’t miss the Cresta Spring Wardrobe, happening outside Woolworths on the lower level. Be inspired to create fresh new looks for the season when you get FREE fashion tips from style experts, on Saturdays and Sundays from 10 am to 2 pm. If you’re the winner of the Cresta Shopping Centre voucher worth R5 000, you can treat yourself to some brand new threads, to put together chic outfits.
To help those who like you, also adore looking fabulous, but are less fortunate, give your closet a good spring clean. Then, donate any items that you won’t wear anymore, and our friends at Cresta Shopping Centre will see to it that your pre-loved garments are given to those who’ll be over the moon to have them.
The mom on the move
Finding something to entertain your little ones over the school holidays, isn’t always easy. But, Cresta Shopping Centre’s got you covered thanks to the Dance & Drama classes, hosted by JATA. These will take place daily during the school holidays until 7 October, and on 13 and 14 October.
They won’t cost you a dime and your kids will get the chance to express their creativity, and improve their confidence. Secure a spot for them here. And, if your kiddos are highly enthusiastic performers, you’ll be glad to know that they could win one term’s worth of FREE tuition, at JATA!
To ensure that your little ones get some exercise, take them to the Spring in your Step Bounce Zone, from 5 – 7 October. An assortment of activities will get their hearts pumping, like bouncing, shoot the hoop contests, mini bounce or parkour course, kicking for goals and slam-dunk challenges. To add to that, the Bounce Vibe Tribe will put on spectacular acts outside entrance 3, at 10 am, 12 pm, 2 pm and 4 pm, on Fridays and Saturdays. On Sundays, shows will be staged at 10 am, 12 pm and 2 pm.
