Ever heard of that saying: “sometimes what you’re looking for comes when you’re not looking at all”? I’ve recently found this to be true. Although that statement is pretty profound my experience wasn’t as breathtaking. I mean how substantial can a shopping experience be? Nevertheless, it had me thinking. I recently was looking for pants that are appropriate for winter. To my dismay, my dedication to the distressed denim trend hasn’t been too rewarding in the change of seasons. I got to Menlyn with a plan and a certain outcome in mind but then left without buying what I intended too – ironic I know.Read More →

Levi Jeans By now it can be assumed that jeans are a basic wardrobe requirement. They’re the white bread of the fashion industry. You can’t really do without them. Being a bit of a jean hoarder, I’d like to think I have this jean thing all figured out. But more often than I’d like to admit: jeans are difficult to shop for. It also doesn’t help if you’re indecisive or a perfectionist either. Regardless, I had a really good experience recently – that proves there’s still hope (for all of you that second guess like it’s a sport). Levi jeans are pretty well known andRead More →

Ever heard of Physicians Formula’s bronzer that smells like a tropical vacation and applies like a dream? Their Murumuru Butter Bronzer has been making some waves in the global beauty community. All you seem to hear is that it’s one of those jackpot products from the drugstore: it’s inexpensive, smells heavenly, easy to blend and is the perfect colour. All things considered, the reason I’m excited is that it’s finally available in South African drugstores. Where can you find this? It’s available at Dischem along with the Butter Blushes.Read More →

Layered hair is great. It gives your hair body and definition, but there’s something no one ever mentions – fly-aways. You might be dealing with second or third-day hair and want to try out a braided hairstyle. Everything is looking great, you know, until you get to the ends. When you get a comment from your dad (with elaborate hand gestures and a concerned expression) saying: “Your hair is fraying at the ends. Is it suppose to look like that?” – you know it’s a problem. My Dad’s observation brought to my attention that it actually doesn’t look so great to do a three strand braid onRead More →

The fashion industry is a fast-moving business. Personally, it always felt like we in South Africa could never truly catch on. However, I was sorely mistaken. E-commerce platforms like Superbalist have started an online fashion revolution it seems. You have access to global trendware with the click of a button that is delivered to your door – it’s as easy as that. Furthermore, these are my top picks that you probably should have in your closet – just saying.  Read More →

You know that moment when you realise the solution to your problem was staring you right in the face? That happened to me not too long ago. What is it? You might ask. Well, the simple answer is hypoallergenic mascara. Ever since I can remember, wearing makeup was a challenge. Partially because when you’re a newbie the overexcitement results in you intentionally, but obliviously, giving yourself racoon eyes or joker’s lips – without it being Halloween. However, this wasn’t the main problem. Eye makeup always made me tired. I would feel sleepy, minutes after application, which influenced how I enjoyed social occasions. I didn’t know whatRead More →

Lip Liner. To some, this is one of those makeup products you don’t really see a use for or don’t even bother using. Why wear a lip liner when you’re going to apply a lipstick over? There are many reasons one would do so: like creating a shading effect on your lips or making your lipstick last longer. Ironically, that’s not how I’ve come to use lip liners. Years ago I hopped onto the lip liner trend thanks to the influence that Kylie Jenner had on the beauty industry. That was the first time I discovered Mac’s Lip Pencils and the different dupe products thatRead More →

One thing that I’ve come to love is wearing nail polish. This might be an odd statement, but between adhering to school rules and being more tom-boyish than I’d admit I never really cared about something like painting my nails. The reason for this change is solely accredited to Sally Hansen’s Miracle Gel nail polish. Sometime in the December holidays, my mom thought it would be a good idea to find a basic nail polish colour that could be worn every day. Not long after we set out to our nearest Dischem and viewed their selection. I was instantly drawn to Sally Hansen’s range as I’dRead More →

Designer prices are no joke. Nonetheless, It makes sense to justify the price of the purchase: it’s trendy, well-made and beautiful – wrong. There are people that would give up an arm and a leg for a designer item. Thankfully, there are less extreme methods of obtaining a Gucci bag whilst keeping your extremities intact – and that does not mean selling your kidneys. If you’ve come across my post: Duty-free Shopping Guide: Part 1 you’re aware that being frugal and shopping luxuries can be done simultaneously. So if you want bomb timeless products at a discount – you’re in the right place.   Perfume Perfume is an airport classicRead More →

The French have knowingly mastered a few things. One of these things is fashion. They can look effortlessly stylish, polished and beautiful all at once. Luckily, their minimalist look isn’t hard to achieve. When you’re clued in on the do’s and don’ts you’ll be flaunting fashion like a french in no time. The Striped Shirt The striped shirt is a classic. It seems the association of the French wearing stripes is cliché – but it’s true. A striped shirt can be considered an essential piece in a French woman’s wardrobe. Depending on your personal preferences or the weather a short or long sleeved striped shirt canRead More →
