10 Jan Top of the New Year agenda!
See which women-owned brands and communities are taking over this year’s events calendar.
Over at the SHE HQ we’re already at our desks and finalising plans to create more events and workshops of our own. Why? Well between one SHE gathering and the next, a gap is often felt among members of our community who tell us they need more! Now that the main festivities are over, we’re finalising our own schedule for 2020. In the meantime, we thought to fill you in on some hot-on-the scene businesses and communities that share our values and who are also preparing a colourful schedule of activities to welcome you in the forth-coming months.
So, without further a-do we’re proud to bring you this short-list of women-owned brands with BIG plans and only the best intentions for this year!
A Life I Choose
First up it’s The New Year Evolution Workshop by A Life I Choose happening on Saturday the 18th and Sunday the 19th of January. Here Psychotherapist and founder of A Life I Choose – Emma Hogg is preparing to welcome her largest audience yet while inviting us to take a closer look at ourselves and adjust to a more positive mindset. During the workshop, attendees will be encouraged to interact with one another, make new connections and set targets that are in alignment with their purpose.
“You’ll leave the workshop with a clear vision of the year you’re going to create, the strategy you need to make this a reality and the techniques to acknowledge your fear when it arises so that it never ever stops you from achieving.” – Emma Hogg

A place of zen and blissful tranquility, here was the location for our very first SHE gathering back in May 2017! Founded by Yasmin DeGiorgio, a Yoga and meditation teacher and mentor, Sanya Eco-Spa offers clients the opportunity to unwind and find their inner peace whether enjoying a beauty treatment or massage, a yoga class or even a longer-stay retreat held at various locations around the island.
Coming up next at Sanya Eco-Spa – a 4 Week Stress RESET course starting on January 25th! This course will take you from the edge of burn-out to a state of inner balance, peace of mind and creative inspiration. Included in the package is a weekly workshop, yoga and meditation classes, massage treatment, Spa membership and online portal.
“Stress is one of the most destructive forces to our health, well being, productivity and relationships. Yet it also offers us an opportunity and sometimes a push, to go within, understand ourselves better and master our inner lives.” – Yasmin De Giorgio

Carla Grima Atelier
Even before we had the pleasure of welcoming fashion designer and entrepreneur Carla Grima to our panel back in June 2018, we had been following her journey and marvelling at her unique and colourful creations! Hearing her story, we became fascinated by her plight to success and today, we remain in awe of Carla’s passion for the trade and her willingness to collaborate with other creatives locally. This year alone we are told to expect more collaborative shows and projects with local designers and creatives leading up to the year’s highlight which is always aimed at Spring/Summer!
“We are really excited to work on some new concepts that will bring our clients together for more informative events and workshops which will be focused around our boutique locations – Salt&C Ta’Xbiex and Phoenicia.” – Carla Grima
Malta Artisan Markets
Attracting makers and traders from around the island as the name itself suggests, these award-winning markets launched in May 2011 have become hot spots for discovering local artisans and shopping for an array of lovingly crafted creations. Organised by The Definitive(ly) Good Guide Co – publishers of The Definitive(ly) Good Guide to Restaurants in Malta & Gozo and The Malta Baby and Kids directory, the aim of this market is to “further promote high quality local arts and crafts and quality food products and good eating”.
This year Malta Artisan Markets will be organising four events at various locations, the first one being in the Spring. If you’d like to find out more about the MAM and be notified of upcoming events you can sign up to their newsletter via their website

The first one will be held in Gozo, during the event ‘Lejl Imkebbes’ or “Festival of lights” on 28th March from 6pm onwards at the Cittadella, which will be lit with over 30,000 candles creating a truly magical atmosphere.
