Chanel Counter Event

Last Wednesday I attended an event at Chanel in Canal Walk with the lovely ladies from Beauty South Africa. We were invited by Chanel to celebrate their new counter in Edgars, Canal Walk. It was amazing being around all those luxurious fragrances, foundations and eyeshadow palettes! There's something about Chanel - everything about the brand is appealing. The gold packing, the logo, the French - it's all just so...

Dove 100 Colours

I'll be the first person to admit that I have a little bit of an obsession with black - especially in winter. I find it so difficult to wear anything else, except for leopard print - of course! When I was invited to the Dove 100 Colours event at the Twelve Apostles last week, it was so hard for me to find something colourful to wear. In the end I opted for this bright jumper from Mr Price, and stuck out like a sore thumb! (It was totally worth it!) Hanging out with the beautiful Carlinn from superficialgirls.com and Kelli Clifton, Beauty Editor of Fairlady Magazine. I finally met the lovely Candice-Lee from inmybag.co.za! ...

Cape Town Carnival with Catrice

On Saturday night I attended my first ever Cape Town Carnival, and it was AMAZING. I was invited by Catrice and Essence cosmetics to attend their VIP party, which happened in front of the Traffic Department in Green Point. Our view was absolutely spectacular, and the vibe of the evening was one that I would never forget. It was truly like being a kid again! All the lights and costumes were so bright and amazing - it was reminiscent of childhood Christmases and birthdays. I spent the whole night hanging out with two of my fave bloggers, Laura Jane and Siyaam Ally. We all got to meet Cindy Nell, the importer of Catrice, and my favourite former Miss South Africa She is just as beautiful...

Cape Town Blogger Meet

Last year Lauren Groenewald, aka @Lauren_RSA tweeted about an upcoming blogger get together in Cape Town. The event was open to everyone, but had limited seats. I was really happy to get a spot, because I'd wanted to meet all the people I follow on Twitter and Instagram. The event was hosted at Shelley's Gourmet Cafe in Kloof Street - one of the most AMAZING places I've seen in years. It's like a little princess lives there - everything is so beautiful and girly! We paid R175 for the event, which was nothing compared to the amount of awesomeness we got. Our goodiebags were so full and heavy that I had trouble carrying it to my car. It was filled...
