Looking for a perfect gift or just want to treat someone? Lingerie Letters is such a great idea and such a perfect gift. I actually found out about the service from another blogger and decided to treat myself as I am a lover of pretty things. Lingerie is something I truly love and invest in because it makes you feel great and pretty. You can either buy from their boutique or sign up to get a letter each month or just gift someone from 1,3 or 6 months. All the underwear is handmade in SA with pretty designs that are super comfortable and gorgeous on.
A while back I did hair and makeup for local SA designer Tamara Cherie for her SS17/18 collection. Its definitely her best collection yet with gorgeous colours and materials and a whole lot of sequin. Of course being the shopaholic and absolutely love fasion I had to buy a few pieces from the collection. Now I am one of those people that needs a lot of tops for all occasions. I think I have lots count on how mant I have but you need for all occassions whether casual or dressy. What I love about Tamara’s collection is you can mix it up and either be really smart or dress it down with a pair of jeans or denim skirt. Click here to see her latest range.
The print dress for every day wear seems to be my standard uniform these days. Its actually become of a bit of an obsession as I literally have about 30 different print dresses. As I have gotten older I ctend to over up the top part and show a little more leg even though my knees are knobbly. I think its key to have dresses that really work for you and that you can wear day or night. This dress I could pear it with a heel and pump up my makeup and I could do dinner, drinks or dancing.
I wanted to create a shoot that highlighted the hair with a touch of quirky makeup. After all my hair training from the London Hair Academy I decided to shoot a hair editorial and Lucys Magazine decided to feature it. Happy Days. The main focus of the hair is braiding and the different braiding hair styles. I collaborated with local South African jewellery brand Matter Of Fakt to add extra dimension to the shoot plus dress the braids up a little bit. The cuffs are actual ear cuffs but you can so rock them in your hair. I tried to keep it simple with the skin, the jewellery and the nails so that all the real focus is on the hair styles.
The gorgeous new Vista Matter of Fakt collection has just launched and its gorgeous. Luckliy I got to be involved with the new campaign doing both the hair and the makeup for really such a beautiful shoot. If you don’t knoqw about the local South African brand you really are missing out. All the pieces are gold plated on brass so you can really get some beautiful affordable pieces. Mary-Ann the owner of Matter of Fakt has designed a combination of simple pices and a few pieces with semi precious stones that are absolutely stunning.
I finally got to film my first fashion TV commercial for SA’s online store Superbalist. The store has been knopwn previously for being much more about the youth but with their new campaign that just launched they are branching out to make it more fashion targeting loads more people. I was so excited to be able to get involved with the TV commercial for the girls and boys. I can’t take all the credit for the makeup but I was part of a great team of artists. So impressed with their new clothes that are being launched definitely worth checking out.
In the latest issue of Edgars Club magazine features my hair and makeup work for a sports inspired fashion editorial. Its all about how to work the trend whether you want to dress it up a bit or keep it casual. Investing in a cool pair of trainers that makes your outfit pop is definitely a key trend here. Braids or sleek ponies is definitely how your hair should be with gorgeous glowing skin.
For almost the last year I have been dreaming of getting my hands on some rose gold hangers. Especially after following some overseas bloggers and seeing how gorgeous their clothes looked with the pretty hangers. I had to some how get my hands on some. I moved into my new home last year and have been slowing getting all my pieces together. However whenever I look at all my pretty clothes hanging I just don’t feel quite so happy. Until I discovered the Lovilee hangers that to my absolute happiness had rose gold hangers!!!
When it comes to shopping for myself I am literally obsessed with print dresses. My wardrobe consists of prints, jeans and so many tops. As soon as I step into Zara or an H&M my eyes scan out those prints. Yes I have quite a few of the LBD when it comes to going out at night. But for my every day wear a print dress it has to be. I bought this Zara dress last week after seeing it a few times I decided to try it on. Well you can guess it just had to come home with me.
My latest editorial with Marie Claire is all about taking the Tuxedo and breaking it down. Its all about how to wear the fabric of the season and mixing pieces to fancy up your work wear. I kept makeup really simple to match the structured pieces of the clothes. The models eyes were contoured with a beautiful shimmer on the lids, brows were bold and skin dewy. You can add a lip as it would work perfectly with the strong pieces but for this shoot we kept it nude so it was more feminine.
