I’ve been wearing make-up since I was 13 years old but didn’t know much about primers until a few years ago. However, I am no expert. I got curious about primers because I like to know what’s hot and happening in the beauty world. If something is supposed to help enhance your look, you better believe I know about it. I may not do everything I hear about but I am “in the know” ;). Primers are quite frankly a must if you work over nine hours a day and

The Kiss

I’d heard about Lush from other bloggers on Instagram but not one to give in to hypes, I  only popped in store for the first time EVER this week – just in time for Valentine’s Day. I am what one can term a lover of all things womanly. If it makes you look or smell good, I’ll buy it! So you can imagine how I felt when I walked into Lush at The Waterfront this Wednesday. Kid at a candy store is an understatement in describing how I felt, perhaps Alice in

Cavalli

No not Roberto Cavalli, hopefully some day soon – Cavalli Stud Farm . The only adjective I can think of to describe this venue is quite simply, exquisite! The landscape is just glorious and the only place that completely impresses me on the scale of Cavalli is Delaire Graff. Although, having been to both venues an equal number of times, the jury is still out on which of the two I prefer. At the moment, I am more inclined to say I favour Cavalli over Delaire Graff but only because of the shop

Is there a difference between vintage and second hand clothing? Yes there is! I’ve used these two interchangeably in the past but they are NOT the same! And now that I know better I think it’s only fair to share that knowledge with you because sharing is caring. Vintage clothing is generally clothing from the 1920’s or 20 years before present day. So any clothing from 1996 or older would be considered vintage to us now. Then there is “vintage style” clothing which is an imitation – can be brand

I am my most stylish when I am with my friend, Shalamar. We have been friends for close to 11 years and she is one of the rare people I occasionally ask for styling advice because she is one stylish lady! Don’t get me wrong, I am pretty darn stylish myself. I am the discerningstylist after all! As a matter of fact, my first words as a toddler were Prada instead of Dada and Miu Miu instead of Mummy. On a serious note, I hardly ever take style advice from anyone.

I went in to Dischem a few weeks ago to buy some toiletries when my ever wondering eye rested on the L.A. Girl Matte Flat Finish Pigment Gloss. Having only ever used their concealer, I was hesitant to splurge and decided on only three of their pigment gloss; Stunner, Bazaar and Instinct. I love colour so I tend to gravitate towards brightly coloured lippies and even though Stunner and Instinct are colours I already own in Mac Heroine and Chilli, I still chose to buy the glosses. The first colour

I’ve always been curious to know if blondes do indeed have more fun so I went the lighter route with my hair. Deep down I knew it wasn’t true that blondes have more fun which is why when my dad asked me after seeing me in this top, “do blondes have more fun?” my immediate answer was a resounding “NO!”. The truth is confident women have more fun. Confidence can be aggrandized through social, academic and or professional status. It can also be enhanced through external factors like one’s style,

Happy New Year beautiful people! Yay to my first post of the year! I’m beyond thrilled and grateful to have this platform to share my love of clothes, style and beauty. It has been incredibly hot in the Western Cape – even for summer – and so I try to wear as little as possible. This past Saturday, my friend and I made plans to go to the beach and instead of wearing a swimwear, I opted for this casual and summery outfit of shorts, crochet half top and a

Lashes have the ability to transform your face. You may wear foundation, concealer, blush, lipstick, draw on your brows or even contour but in my opinion, your face is never really made up until you’ve applied mascara or false lashes. They say the eyes are the window to your soul and so it is important to pay attention to that area whenever you apply make-up. I love the drama and alluring look false lashes give your face. You needn’t worry about much else with the right lashes. When I need a
