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...

How to make the most of a Garden Route Holiday

A holiday, already? Wow, Anja. It's February. Calm down. But you guys, March and April are coming. And with all those public holidays - it's basically like a second December. And if you're like me and you had to be online over the Festive Season, now's the time to take a proper break! J-P and I absolutely love the East Coast, and last year we went to Jeffrey's Bay for Easter and in December we went to Port Elizabeth for a week. I find everything about the trip up charming, from stopping at little farm stalls in Robertson to finding a Wimpy in the most obscure little towns. (I love Wimpy. Don't judge me.) But what I love the most, is the Garden...

But my absolute favourite part about summer is that lekker smell of braai that fills the air at dusk. 2. Dogs Dogs make everything better in life. I hate going to the petrol station, so I used to take my Jack Russell with me just to make the trip better. 10/10 would recommend. Unfortunately I can't have a dog at my flat, but I am a problem-solver and that's why I like to go to the...
