When I was younger we rented an old beach house. During the night all of us heard noises and felt a presence in the house. My parents aren’t superstitious people, but to this day they maintain that there was something *off* about that place. twitter.com/rabiasquared/s…

Bold brows, smokey eyes & ’60s glam with Almay

The older I get, the more I care about my brows. When I was younger, my brows were younger too. They were young, wild and free. Fast forward 10 years and now my brows, much like me, like to party every now and then, but ultimately what makes them the happiest is staying home and watching Netflix whilst eating avo on toast. Okay, maybe that's more me than them. But still, my brows have evolved with time and so have my makeup needs. I now find myself toning down the rest of my makeup to let my brows do the talking, and sometimes it's the only thing I have time for in the mornings before heading out for work. As a...

Almay Lip Vibes Review

The team at Almay sent me their latest lipstick range, Almay Lip Vibes, for this sponsored review.  So let's talk about the name of the range: Lip Vibes. I wonder if it was named by a South African? VIBES, my bru! This collection is absolutely gorgeous though - the packaging takes me back to my balmy holiday in Brazil.  The Almay Lip Vibes range consists of 24 pretty lippies with awesome names such as “Skip The Gym”, “Rise Up”, “Live Happy”, “Love Big”, “Eat Cake” and “Be Strong”. All of these give better advice than me!  You can choose from three unique finishes: Matte, Crème and Toppers. My favourite lipstick in the range is, without any doubt, Eat Cake. ...

The Baths in Citrusdal: A Review

The Cederberg is filled with magnificent getaway spots for every kind of traveller. I have done camping at Beaverlac, glamping at Wolfkop and most recently; a luxurious 2-night stay at The Baths.

What To Expect From Dating A Surfer

Growing up, I spent almost every weekend on the West Coast in Yzerfontein. I absolutely love the ocean and a great chunk of my childhood was spent either swimming in the deathly cold waters of the West Coast, building sand castles, catching klipvissies or as I grew older - tanning and reading on the beach. I am a summer baby through and through. There is no place I am happier than by the ocean. Imagine my joy when I discovered that the guy I was into surfs and is always keen to take me to the beach...

27 Things About Me

I am turning 27 today, so I have decided to tell you 27 things about me. Some of this I may have told you already - forgive my memory. I am an old woman now. 1. I only started liking avo a month ago I always thought it was just expensive snot. 2. I am an introvert I wrote about being an INFJ a few years ago. Apparently, one's personality can actually change as you mature, and it is possible to go from being an extrovert to being an introvert, and vice versa. I am still 100% an introvert. The only thing that makes me happier than having no plans, is having cancelled plans. 3. I once got a stitch from eating too much pizza My whole...
