Feeling Fresh

I realised a while ago that a lot of my readers don't know what I do for a living. As open as I am on my blog, I like to keep my worklife private. But I can tell you that I work in the digital industry. Working in this industry means that you are online 24/7, and it's super difficult to plan a holiday/break when you are always accessible. But at the beginning of 2017 I promised myself that I would try. This year is all about taking care of my physical and mental health, and a big part of that is learning when to take some time to myself. And so that's what I did this past week. I went...

Urban Decay: Prep, Prime, Set

Last year I stopped attending events for a while, because I just had too much on my plate. When I received an invite from Urban Decay to attend their Prep, Prime and Set launch - I decided that it would be the perfect event to get back out there. And with an incredible view of the ocean, delicious snacks and exciting products to test - I definitely made the right choice. All of the above photos were taken by the talented Tegan Smith Photography. At this event, Urban Decay introduced to us their new innovative complexion products. Being a Hermoine Granger, I wanted to write a thesis about all the benefits, ingredients, textures, bottle size, font type, weight and density of these products. But I...

How To Be A Lekker Person

I know my posts are usually a bit more Buzzfeed than Elite Daily, but I've been thinking about this post for ages and I really wanted to set it free. I'm working on some of these things myself; particularly the "be grateful" part. I think it's too easy to focus on the things that are kak in your life, and to lose sight of all the positive parts. I hope this post inspires you in some small way.   Compliment more   I don't think we compliment each other nearly enough. And we seem to think that we should always go big with our compliments. You have no idea what a simple compliment can do for someone's self-esteem, or how much it can brighten up their day. So compliment...

Introducing MAC Shadescents

If you've been following my blog for a while now, you're probably familiar with the fact that I have a genuine lipstick addiction. In my previous article about Things That Make Me Happy, I mention how I feel true euphoria when I apply a new lipstick for the first time. It's also no secret that I am a super MAC fan. Two of my absolute favourite shades are Heroine and Candy Yum Yum. The one is quite badass, while the other one speaks to my inner Barbie. (She still exists.) When I first caught wind of the MAC Shadescents range, I was very excited but also a bit apprehensive to give it a try. I mean, I love these lipsticks, but...

Retro Bloom

Last year every website I love crashed on Black Friday, and I was unable to buy any discounted clothes. Or so I thought. A few days after Black Friday, I somehow landed on Sassy Chic – a local online shop I’d never visited before. I was so impressed with the variety of fashion on their website, and even more impressed when I discovered that their Black Friday sale was still on. I bought this wrap dress for an absolute steal and it’s one of those timeless pieces I will be able to wear for years to come. Shoutout to Andy Pearce for shooting yet another beautiful post for me. If you would like to work with the talented Mr Pearce, contact him here:[email protected] Dress: Sassy Chic Shoes:...
