Now I am pretty crap when it comes to applying hand creams not sure why because I am getting older and so are my hands. So when Rubybox asked me if I wanted to test it our plus get a few more Dove goodies of course I said yes. Dove is a brand that I truly love I use it for myself and my kids. Its gentle for my sensitive skin whether its a body cream, body wash or deodorant I love it. The Dove Derma Spa Hand Cream is just as great and really makes my hands feel super soft and smooth.
COMPETITION CLOSED The gorgeous French brand has introduced the new SVR Densitium Anti-Age range for more mature skin. SVR's motto promises "beautiful skin" and thats exactly what it does. Now I like to think that I am still really young even though I am now 42 and don't really want to accept I am actually getting older!!! I have been testing out the serum, eye cream and moisturiser and my skin is feeling fab. I get a beautiful glow from the serum and moisturiser. Plus my under eye area doesn't have as many fine lines and is a lot smoother.
I have been a Dermalogica fan for quite some time because its a brand that never lets me down and is amazing at transforming skin. I absolutely love their latest innovative product the Dermalogica Sound Sleep Cocoon(R1295) . In just two weeks of using it my skin feels amazing every morning I wake up and I am actually sleeping better. Plus combine it with the relaxing sleep music app and the lavender in the product its a calming combo for me.
I have been waiting to do a post like this for a while and now I have the lovely Tegan taking my pics I finally had the chance. This post is my 5 minute face with a red lip thrown in because it just lifts my whole look and makes me look so fresh. Even Tegan couldn't believe how fast I did my makeup its been perfected over time especially when I have 2 kids to contend with every morning. I am one of those girls that doesn't faff around for hours on makeup. My goal to look fresh and healthy with a glow thrown in.
I am definitely a 90's girl through and through when it comes to my taste in music and my love for bomber jackets. Back in the day it was a plain black or army green these days you can get so many different versions from leather to print and all sorts of textures. I have a variety as you can see from leather, metallic and fun colourful prints. You can literally find anything from Zara to the more high end but Zara always has some goodies.
COMPETITION CLOSED WINNER WILL BE ANNOUNCED TODAY. Now if you folllow me you know I love face mists like a lot. So with the new Max Fix + scented mists I was really happy to get my hands on all of them (thank you Mac South Africa team). Being a makeup artist I get lots of goodies from Mac which makes me job so much easier when it comes to making the model's skin look amazing. If you don't know anything about Mac Fix + you are totally mssing out and need to get yourself one in your stash.
Winter is almost here in Cape Town not that I can really call it a real winter and its definitely not like winters in London. But we do have some colder days and icey mornings and evenings. This post is all about my autum winter fashion staples that I have been collecting over the last couple months. My wardrobe needed a real update. This season I have collected a series of winter short sleeve tops, few jumpers and lighter jackets. Not sure if I am even going to get a chance to wear my big winter jackets. I have updated my jacket collection and added in a couple more bomber jackets from plain to print. I have even gone with smart ZaraChanel style jacket for the season for those fancy dinners!!
Don't you hate wearing a matte lipstick and you feel like your lips are so dry that your skin feels like its going to flake off? Sounds awful right? Well the Max Factor Velvet Matte Lipsticks are seriously one of the most hydrating matte lipsticks I have yet to try. Super comfortable to wear and look oh so pretty on. With great on trend shades that really feel amazing on your lips.
This is literally one of my fav mascara's the new Benefit Bad Gal Bang. I loved it from the moment the wand touched my lashes. For those of you who follow my blog you will know I bang on about how sad my lashes are. So of course mascara has literally been my best friend for a very long time. If I don't put a few coats on I feel totally naked. What I love about the brand is they always get their mascara's down to a T. Lots and Lots of volume. I love that the Bad Gal Bang doesn't smudge and make a mess like some do. For someone like me who absolutely can't live without mascara I needed to try this one out. Especially with a promise of a formula enriched mascara with aero-particles and described as 'a super light technology derived from space technology' - to give volume and a promise of 36-hour wear. Sounds amazing right???
This year its all about change for me in how I look and how I am approaching life. My hair has always stayed the same its a safety a net I suppose. You always see people making drastic changes when things happen in their life and its usually their hair. I always felt I had to have long hair because its more girly. This year I have been feeling more adventourous so I started by choping off my hair. If you looking to change up your hair and you are based in Cape town get your self to Savas. This is my new hair look created by Savas and I love it. I totally let him do his thing and chopped off quite a bit giving me a different look to the normal long tresses I have going on. But what I can say is that it makes me feel more confident and definitley I feel like a newer version of myself.
