Its gift time again with Elizabeth Arden when you purchase two products that are either a moisturiser, foundation
The product I have been waiting for the Ren Perfect Canvas has finally landed on my desk. It launches in SA next month but I luckily got my hands on some with a couple more skincare goodies. The Perfect Canvas is the perfect finishing serum to ensure a flawless finish with your foundation. Of course you always have to prep skin so the combo of the Ren Flash Hydro Boost and the Instant Brightening Beauty Eye Shot Lift you are on to a winning combination.
I finally got to out Balmain Hair Couture products to the test on a swimwear story I shot at the end of last year. I attended the launch a few months ago and was super excited to get my hands on some of the products. I was most excited about the texturizing sea salt spray as I often have to create a beachy wave for a shoot.
Running has been one of those things that I have battled getting into but I know its great for calorie burning. Its been an on and then a long off but finally I have been getting back into it at a slow pace. At least I can run 5k in just under half hour! Over the Christmas holidays in Cape Town which is summer where you want to look hot but you find you just eat and drink everything. I came across the Redrock training app that offeres a variety of training plans but weight loss is what I need. I have put on 6kg's yes that's a lot and I need to get it off quick sharp. This app is definitely going to get me there.
I am starting 2018 with a healthy and as much as possible all natural start. I am focusing heavily on what I am putting in my body but also what I out on my skin. Skincare is a number one priority so that still hasn't chnaged but I am definitely trying out new things. I bout the Eat Beautiful Book a few months ago by celebrity makeup artist Wendy Rowe. Honestly I didn't really look at it but thought I should buy it because its Wendy Rowe. Well the book is amazing with so many amazing food recipes and break downs of fruits and veg etc and how it can sort out all different issues with your body. The one thing I really wanted to try was to make the Rose Water Toner. Its super easy to do and a really effective for your skin.
Its been a few weeks since I have posted anything on my blog. Sadly my site was hacked and had to get it totally rebuilt so Shahnaz Loves Beauty comes with a new look for 2018. I have never gone that long without blogging even if its the holidays but it really gave me time to re think about my blog for this new year. I definitely have some new goals and a totally new focus. I have been blogging for over 4 years and it came to a point where I totally lost my focus last year on what I wanted to do. So this year I really am going to mix it up.
