One Fine Day

I relocated to Cape Town nine months ago and even though it’s been challenging, it’s also been exciting. The challenging part for me has not only been trying to settle in to a new home, of which I’ve had to do three and half times since I relocated, but making new friends. The older you get, the more difficult it is to make friends. You become jaded, probably fallen out with a handful of friends either because they owe you money, they hooked up with your boyfriend,  they’re bi-polar or the

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

I love all things beauty which is one of the biggest challenge of my life. What’s a girl with a penchant for spending to do when she has limited funds?!!! I have been wearing fragrances, expensive ones too since before I was a teenager and have always enjoyed the thrill of having a particular scent associated with me. The older I got, the more I experimented with fragrances and even though I do not have a favourite fragrance, I have a particular type of scent I love and ones that

My birthday was on the 16th of September but I only got to celebrate it on the first weekend in October. Two of my friends flew up from Johannesburg and we celebrated with wine tasting at La Motte and dinner at Pierneef a La Motte. The thing about getting older is none of the things that excited me a few years ago excite me now. Sure I still want to shake my little tush to Mavado and Vybz Kartel from time to time but partying till the early hours of

I was invited to the Fabiani Spring/Summer 2015 Collection at Crossley & Webb in Gardens this past week, Thursday 10 2015 and even though I don’t do menswear, my curiosity got the better of me. In the body of the invite sent, I read “It promises to be a stylish evening boasting Fabiani menswear, a glittering array of cars, and the clink of Chivas filled glasses”, and it was exactly that and more… The light and delicious nibbles, flow of champagne, whiskey, vintage cars and trendy crowd made for the perfect

Strawberry lips

I don’t usually do lip balms because I wear lipstick 99 percent of the time.  Of course I have to moisturise before I apply my lipstick so I either use Vaseline or Mac’s Lip Conditioner and have never seen the point in buying flavoured lip balms because it just doesn’t make sense to me, at least not anymore. I was a fan back in high school, when I lived in the States and was spoilt for choice. My lips were always glistening with balm and sweet, I might add ;). However, I

I’m far from sad, don’t be fooled by my post title. As a blogger, one of the many things you struggle with are blog titles. I debated many titles before deciding on Summertime Sadness which just happens to be one of my favourite songs by Lana Del Ray. I wore this look two weekends ago when it was warm. I can’t believe how soon we’ve moved to spring, it seems like it was just summer yesterday. It just goes to show, seasons do change and even though it may rain

I went a little crazy this weekend with my beauty purchases and these two essence nail polishes made the list. I don’t usually do the nude look,  I love colour too much, but I also like to try different things. Another new thing I’m trying out is the essence nail polish brand. I must say, I like the width of the brush, it makes the application so much easier and less messy especially for someone who paints their own nails. I also like the fact that it dries relatively quickly

I am so happy to hear that Mr Price will be opening in Australia. I love Mr Price and I think their clothes are trendy and affordable. To me Mr Price is like H&M or Primark. I buy Mr Price clothing because their clothes are stylish and reasonably priced but I wouldn’t shop my entire there simply because I like quality and I also wouldn’t want to walk down the street and have someone dressed exactly like me. Because of Mr Price’s affordability, there is no exclusivity and if you want to stand

It’s technically spring in September but I think it’s safe to say that spring came early this year; it’s been wet and rainy lately. This spring, you’ll be glad to know that a lot of last years’ trends are making a comeback so you don’t have to kill your bank account buying a whole new wardrobe to keep up with the latest trends. Here are nine of last year’s trends that made the cut to this year: 1. Denim on denim – This look has been spotted by the likes
