Wow, what a fantastic month January was. Our best ever! So a BIG Priscilla’s WELCOME to all our new clients. We are very happy to have you on board. We hope that we will have many hours of fun together. We are particularly happy to see that so many of you are using our package options. These are fantastic as not only do they give you great value for money, they also allow you to sample the various services (makeup, photography, shopping services etc) that we offer. If you are interested in these packages, please check out our pricing page for details. I am sure you will all be having a lot of fun exploring with us.
This past month I was reminded of just how gratified I feel when meeting new clients. It is wonderful to see the very real impact we have on people’s lives. We try to meet all our clients in person and when people, who have never before been able to speak freely to anybody about their crossdressing/gender identity, are suddenly confronted by a friendly face, and an accepting mind you can see the relief come over them as years of emotional baggage literally drop off them. It is these moments that make me feel so privileged to know all of you. Thank you for sharing these moments with us.
On a lighter note work is progressing on our apartment. The plastering is done, the tiles are in, we have bought some furniture already and we are hoping to have it ‘habitable’ in the next week or so. We still need to do some work: blinds need to be put in and a few finishing touches will be required but we are getting there. The exterior will only be completed in a few weeks time as we need to paint the exterior walls and landscape the private garden area. But we are getting there and we are expecting you all to start booking the venue for your dressing needs. Keep an eye on the web page as we will be posting some pictures soon.
We have had some good responses to the request for a Priscilla’s social outing to Priscilla Queen of the Desert. Thank you for that. Irene will be sorting out more details shortly and we will let you know what can be done, what the costs are etc shortly.
On that note we have been reviewing our socials. We believe that they are just not working out. We do see that there is a need for some sort of social activity and we certainly want to play our role in the community but we want to have meaningful events that are well attended and FUN. We are thinking that less is more. We would love to get your feedback on what sort of events you want in addition to our accompanied outing service. Some of you have already suggested more intimate socials, perhaps at a private home and we are working on such an event. Are there any other ideas? Please feel free to contact us with your thoughts and ideas.
In other news that you may want to hear, we were told on Monday night that our sister site, Daniella’s Ramblings has been awarded ‘Best LGBT Blog 2016’ in the SA Blog Awards. Thank you to everyone who supported Daniella’s Ramblings. The award is as much yours as it is ours. You may want to take a look at the blog as it has some useful information on it.
As always, please let us know if we can do anything to assist you and we look forward to seeing more of you in the future.
The Priscilla’s Team
