More Soirées in 2020!
The word "soirée" has always fascinated me. It conjures up something fancy and a must-attend event. In fact the word is french and means “A Fancy Evening Affair”. That, in and of itself, begs a must-attend attitude.
The Bold Not Old Soirées have been held mostly during the daytime and have ranged from luncheons to make-up artistry, to others sharing their wares, to more informal but no less fabulous get togethers. On this page there are some photos of a couple of our 2019 soirées.
2020 Soirées will bring something new to the mix as we build on the Bold Not Old business and what is being offered to stimulate, entertain and increase our understanding around ourselves and our own possibilities. One of the new offerings will be the following:
Some three years ago I channeled and wrote a spectacular deck of Soul Wisdom Oracle Cards and the time has come to share what is being told to me as my new direction for these cards. This year I will be holding regular Soirées to introduce this new direction and to share what is being given to me. Whilst there is a bit of nervousness around this, I am told there is a great benefit to those who come along. Our first soiree for 2020 was held on March 10. See the video below for insights into this marvellous event.
We are all on a journey, we are all part of a bigger picture and plan, and we are also being called to be part of these transformational times. I believe this to be true. Interesting and spectacular times are ahead for us all ... we are together for a reason.
I look forward with great excitement to spending time with you as together we explore this new direction…
Soiree - Soul Wisdom Oracle Cards
10 March 2020
"Being BOLD NOT OLD" - Book Launch
The highlight of 2019 was the book launch of Wallis Pattisonn's amazing book of photography and wisdom - "Being BOLD NOT OLD".
The majority of attendees were featured in the colourful and energetic display of age-positive style and quirkiness.
With champagne and hors d'oeuvres, participants were treated to the inspirational expression that is Wallis Pattisonn.
Master of Ceremonies Russell Pollard piloted the evening through with humour and insight. Speakers included Chrissie Gillies, Helen McIntosh, and a special guest was Rebecca Oxenbould from the Sebastian Foundation. A percentage of the ongoing book sales is being donated to the foundation. A contrast to the otherwise stylish and sophisticated atmosphere was an interruption by "Mrs Bonfire" (stand up comedian Jay Harley).
The evening was buzzing with enthusiasm, fun, and a sense of purpose in being a new generation of role model.
... and some comedy

Bold Not Old Photo Shoot
2019 culminated in the publishing of Wallis' spectacular coffee-table book, "Being BOLD NOT OLD".
Most of the participants were Melbourne-based. Wallis hosted a fabulous day of glamour and preparation, and a photo shoot that was the foundation of the book's content.
Bold Not Old Luncheon Soirée
Throughout 2019 Wallis hosted a number of Soirées in Melbourne, Australia. An excuse to get together and celebrate age-positivity.
