Shine with champagne coloured hair

I am unapologetic about loving a little luxury. For instance, if I want to wear perfume to bed – I do it, no questions asked. And I truly believe that I don’t need a special occasion to drink champagne, I’ve been known to pop a bottle purely because I felt like it. So it comes as no surprise that my heart was stolen by the Champagne Hair Colour Trend. Say what now? Champagne hair? Yes, it’s a thing! Champagne coloured hair is pretty much dark blonde’s shiny sister. Its gold tones will make you look and feel like the queen that your are!

Tangle Angel Review

There are three hair products I absolutely can't live without: My GHD Paddle Brush (It's what keeps my mom bob looking mom bob-y) Moroccan Oil (Because my hair is dryer than a Bruce Willis movie) My Tangle Teezer (It's saved me from crying while detangling my hair) I mentioned my cute leopard-print Tangle Teezer in my "How To Deal With Heat Damaged Hair" article last year. And just when I thought I couldn't love the range anymore, they released the Tangle Angel. The Tangle Angel is amazing for 5 big reasons: It's anti-static, so it prevents flyaway hair and leaves hair smooth and silky. The heat resistant bristles retain their shape even when used with the high temperatures generated by hairdryers. It's water resistant, so you can use it in the shower. Whaduuup! It reminds...

Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour All-Over Miracle Oil

I have many beauty products that I adore, but there's one major one that I can honestly not live without. And that's Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream. I was introduced to it by my friend, Sisanda, last year when she whipped a tube of it out of her handbag to apply to her lips. She then told me that she uses it on absolutely everything - from dry lips to her baby's nappy rashes. I was so intrigued that I immediately went to Edgars to buy it. I can honestly say that it is one of the most important products in my beauty routine. I even wrote an article about it last year, which you can read here. I wasn't aware that the...

Comparing summer insects to humans

Last night I had a mini-meltdown in my flat as I suddenly realised that I live on my own, and I have no human shield against disgusting summer insects. I also realised that I have many useless things in my apartment, including cat butt magnets, but I have no Peaceful Sleep. Smart move, Anja. Smart move. Anyway, seeing as a choir of muggies kept me awake the whole night, I had time to build up this blog post in my mind. I decided to create human personalities for summer insects. That’s right. My mind is an even weirder place after 24h00. Guys, this is a really weird post. I don’t… Ja. Here it is anyways. 1. The mosquito The mosquito is a fucking stage 10 clinger. It’s that...
