Are Cosmetic Enhancements the New Normal? More than a decade ago, when I was a teenager, cosmetic enhancements were not as common as it is now. Botox, breast augmentation, butt implants, fillers and liposuction seem to be becoming the new beauty norm. Image source When did things change? I read an article in Allure magazine which according to the American Society for Dermatologica Surgery, 70% of American consumers in 2016, were considering undergoing non-invasive cosmetic enhancements. You can imagine that the number has risen now. According to a 2018 article
When it comes to style, I love the idea of being able to style an item of clothing in several different ways. I enjoy the challenge of thinking outside the box and coming up with more than one way of wearing a piece of clothing. Everyone wants to look “brand new”, unfortunately, not everyone has the budget to do so. But when you invest in quality, versatile pieces, there is no reason you can’t wear it again and again and look different each time you do. It’s a lazy and
Happy 2019, loves! May this year see the fulfilment of your heart’s desires. Today’s post is all about feminine hygiene, a topic we don’t talk about as often as we should. When it comes to feminine hygiene, many of us are uncertain about a number of things: How do I wash my vagina? Should I be using feminine washes? Is it normal for my vagina to have an odour? Does the white discharge on my underwear mean I have an infection? Is it okay to douche? These and more are some
The Polka dot trend is back and she ain’t never going nowhere ever again. Polka dot is one of those feminine trends that we girly-girls appreciate. And let me tell you, the black and white polka dot owned the Paris Spring 2018 runway. Whether it’s the oversized ’80s iterations at Carolina Herrera’s runway show or Jason’s Wu’s romantic dresses, this trend made quite the impression. There’s just something about polka dots. I ain’t never seen a black and white polka dot outfit that I didn’t like – it’s just so reminiscent of the ’60s.
Can you believe it is the last month of the year? Damn, me neither! Party season is here and like most people on the planet, finding THE outfit can be challenging. I personally do most of my shopping online these days and one of my favourite places to shop is on SUPERBALIST. With over 500 local and international fashion brands, you are bound to find something for you. And with party season around the corner, you don’t have to stress about going to different shops in search of an outfit.
About a week ago, I was sent the Biore Deep Cleansing Charcoal Pore Strips to review. Typically, pore strips isn’t part of my skincare routine. I have tried using a different brand of pore strips in the past and it was a fail. The strip did not stick to my nose properly and so it didn’t work. That was it for me, I had a couple more strips in the box that I didn’t bother trying again after that first failed attempt but for some reason, I signed up to
Just before I turned 30 years old, I made the decision to invest in good skincare. My main skin concern is ageing, I want to stop the signs of ageing in its tracks and remain beautiful and youthful forever. There are certain skincare ingredients that are known to reduce the signs of ageing, one of which is Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHA’s). Read my list of other skincare ingredients here. AHA’s work by removing the skin’s top layer (dead skin cells) to promote more radiant and firmer skin. The Environ Focus
Summer is here which means it is swimwear season. Queue the beach, yacht and pool parties. But first, did you know that understanding your body shape is paramount to getting the right swimwear. For example, I have somewhat of an athletic build, and petite sized boobs so if I am to wear a bikini top, I like it to be padded. I would most likely buy swimwear that flatters other parts of my body that I don’t mind being on display, like my back. I also don’t like my butt cheeks
Did you know that the colour you like says something about your personality? Pink happens to be one of my favourite colours. It is such a pretty, feminine colour. Growing up, I always thought there were limitations to the colours I could wear, as a dark skin girl. Pink and red were two of those colours I thought I shouldn’t wear. Of course, I have since discovered that that just isn’t true, but back then, I didn’t know any better. Maybe it is why I am so fond of pink
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
