One oufit worn three ways? Yes, please! When it comes to shopping for clothes, I like to get my money’s worth. Will I be able to wear it again? Will I be able to style it differently without looking like I’m wearing the same outfit, even though I am? If I put on a few pounds, will it still fit? These are some of the questions I ask myself before purchasing an outfit. Okay, you got me, I’m lying. I’m sort of an impulsive shopper so I tend to buy

I was one of the few lucky people that got to test and review the Botanic Cleansing Conditioner (Moisture & Replenish) by Tresemme. The co-washing cleansing conditioner is a new product on the South African market. Sure, I’ve heard of co-washing – a method of washing your hair where you replace shampoo with conditioner – but  I’d never really thought  I’d be testing it on my hair! Will my hair be clean using conditioner alone? Will my hair fall out? These were some of the questions that plagued me. I

I’m excited! My two favourite South African online retail brands are joining forces.  Two is becoming one.  Say what?! Some of you may have heard, Superbalist and Spree are getting married! Queue the angels humming. Yes, Spree and Superbalist will officially be a couple in early October. Spree will be taking on the name Superbalist instead of meeting in the middle with ‘Sprebalist ‘- we know who wears the pants! 😉 As it turns out, 51%  of the company will be owned by Media 24 (Spree’s current shareholders) while Takealot Group (Superbalist

Three weeks ago, Rubybox sent me Thursday Plantation’s acne range to test and review. The range includes: Tea Tree Foaming Face Wash R209.95 at Wellnesswarehouse 2. Tea Tree and Witch Hazel Toner – R205.95 at Wellnesswarehouse 3. Tea Tree Face Cream – R215. 95 at Wellnesswarehouse For targeted application Tea Tree Blemish Stick Tea Tree Blemish Gel I’d never heard of Thursday Plantation so before I used the products I thought I’d do a little research and find out a little bit more about the brand whose products I was going to be

Figuring out what to wear can be a nightmare. Most days, I am pretty certain about what I want to wear to any occasion, be it to work or a social event. But there are also those days that I change my mind about an outfit at least 5 times. I hate those days, it literally ruins my mood. Thankfully it doesn’t happen too often. Work in itself is stressful, figuring out what to wear doesn’t have to be. I tend to lay out what I’m going to wear to work

Just a month ago, I started using the Justine Dailycare Perfecting range. I was invited to test and review this 3-step range by Rubybox Beauty South Africa for Justine South Africa. The Justine Dailycare Perfecting range consists of three essential products in any skincare arsenal, namely, cleanser, toner and moisturiser. I had just a few months prior come to the conclusion that I needed to upgrade my skincare regime and by an upgrade, I mean – splurge. I had this idea that the more expensive a product is, the more

“Sometimes I wonder if you’re happy?” This is the point-blank question from a friend that plagued my Friday night and entire weekend. This question disrupted my equilibrium. Why would someone who doesn’t know me all that well wonder about my happiness? Do I look unhappy? Do I appear unfulfilled? These and many more questions circled my head, distracted me a little from the answer to his question. After throwing some questions back at this friend, trying to ascertain why he would ask about my happiness or lack thereof, I eventually

If you’re reading this, I bet you want to know if wearing red can make you look more attractive and confident? Yes – yes, it can. How?  Red is often associated with love and passion. Ever read a romance novel? red-hot are some of the adjectives used to describe a steamy scene, right? So, when you wear red it can affect the way that you are perceived. It is such a bold colour and you immediately stand out. A red lip, red shoes, red dress all point to someone who

Are you a rebel when it comes to fashion? Do you follow the rules? Or, do you make your own rules? I’m a little bit of both. I follow some rules and then I make some of my own. I’ve always been a stiletto kind of girl. It dates back to my childhood and how I attributed femininity to wearing high heels. Twenty years later, 95% of the shoes in my closet are heels.  I own three pairs of sneakers and that’s about it. Heels aren’t comfortable. Some are but most

Ever wanted to be a fly on the wall? We’re all born with an innate curiosity, Nigerians call it ‘amebo’ but it’s a perfectly normal human phenomenon. One of the most interesting things you find out about others is what they do or say when they think no one is watching. Here is a list of things women do when they think no one is watching   Pretend you’re not hungry when you’re out on a date by ordering a plate of salad but wolf down two and a half
