Mrs South Africa 2014 Finalist

In February I decided to do something totally out of the box and enter the Mrs SA pageant. I was selected as a semi-finalist in March and in April attended a spectacular event in aid of Cansa where the top 24 finalists were selected and guess what? I was selected. And so the journey to the finale in August has begun.

Our Incredible Journey

On the 18th Sept 2013 Cathy launched her Pregnancy and Baby Journal, Our Incredible Journey, at Skoobs Theatre of Books in Monte Casino. Published by Random House Struik, Our Incredible Journey is available at all leading bookstores.

Cathy Heaton has created an album that is, in essence, a story that a mother (or father) can record for a child, and which the child will be able to understand and enjoy once he or she is old enough. It is also a parent’s precious keepsake of the mother and child journey from before birth (actually from the 5th week of pregnancy) to the child’s fifth year. The charming format, which is interspersed with stunning photographs and appropriate quotations and verses, makes it simple to record milestones, special events, thoughts and general background. There is ample space to paste in multiple photographs or other keepsakes and mementos.

Facebook Competition a Roaring Success


Thank-you to everyone who entered my Facebook competition in June. The purpose of this competition was to create activity on my page, increase exposure by increasing traffic to the page and to give a little back to my loyal fans. I had 813 fans on my page when launching the competition and hoped within the competition week to increase this fan base to 1000. Well I hit 1000 fans before the end of the first day! At the end of the competition, I had 95 entries and 2079 fans!  It was a fun-filled week and the winner was Claudia Viegas with little Daniel (see pic above). His entry photo on the left is not one of my images but the image on right is one I took when they redeemed their prize, a Family Shoot with make-up for mom on Sat 9th July.

As a great thanks to all the entrants who participated so nicely, I offered a surprised and unplanned 50% discount off a Family Shoot (an offer I have never done before!). So many had expressed a wish to win a photo shoot with me and so many didn’t have professional photos that I felt the need to offer them a great opportunity! I am pleased to say that I will be meeting many of them in the month of July and am so excited. Watch this page for the results of our fun shoots!

Thanks for the awesome week everyone!
