Things I despise:
Waiting for my nails to dry. (More on this later.)
Chipped nail polish.
Having to soak my nails for 26 years to remove glitter nail polish. (And considering amputation.)
So this polish by Morgan Taylor (named Ice Queen Maybe) is right up my alley, because it dries very quickly. And when it chips - it's not very obvious, because the colour blends so well with your natural nail. Moreover, even though it's a shimmery - it doesn't stick to your nail and the polish is so easy to remove.
All of their shades are beautiful though, and they're also available in minis. So cute! Shop them on Zando here.

It's weird to think that I've been on Facebook since 2007. When I first joined Facebook, I was only allowed to check on it once a day because we had a 2GB capped line. That 2GB used to run out so quickly, which used to send my dad into a blind rage.
Fast forward 10 years and nothing has really changed. I'm still running out of 2GB, only this time it's on my phone because data in South Africa is one of the biggest lies of our time and every service provider is part of the conspiracy.
Years of being on social media - not only Facebook - have shown me that we're all pretty much the same human online.
Here are some...
There's something so rewarding about shopping local. I think for me, personally, it's because I love being a part of a journey. With big retailers you miss steps in their journey, but with local designers and entrepreneurs - you get to see everything. And when you finally purchase that product; it makes you feel like you've contributed to their success. That you've been there to cheer them on.
That is how I feel about Mazee. I was first introduced to the brand in 2013 when I attended my very first blogging event. It was for The Organ Donor Foundation, and it was arranged by one of the biggest agencies in Cape Town. It was a very exciting night for me. Thanks...
This weekend I looked at my blog and felt so guilty that I haven't written anything since 24 May. Sies man, Anja. Your Wordpress theme was kak expensive and you need to use it.
Where have I been? I realised that I have explained it on every single social network except on my blog. So I have decided to give you guys a life update. If you've been following all my tweets - please feel free to click away, because this might be a bit repetitive for you.
If not; read on.
At the beginning of 2017 I vowed to be brave and reach for my dreams. Just kidding, this isn't Pinterest. Let me rephrase: At the beginning of 2017 I vowed to...
I can't believe that I went through 22 years without coffee. At school I used to pull my nose up at it - only drinking a cup every now and then in winter. During my varsity years I started buying coffee at the cafeteria to fuel me after late nights working on projects, or partying. But even then it wasn't really because I liked the taste - just because I needed the kick.
Then I started working in the CBD, and House of Machines was just across the road from my office. And with that the coffee addiction started.
My mom and I recently went to Pretoria to visit my family, and I made her stop at coffee shops every morning so...
