Its finally here the first store of Urban Decay in South Africa. Sadly I couldn't make the press trip as I am overseas but I wanted to share with my readers the new gorgeous store in Joburg in Sandton City. My fellow bloggers luckily got to get a sneaky look before the store opened on 9th July and I can't wait to get myself there when I am next in the city. What I am so happy about is every product available overseas (apart from the Gwen Stephani palette)is in this store unlike some of the other brands if you want something you can get your hands on it.
So here are the official pics from my wedding renwal back in March sot by a friend and great photographer Jacobus Snyman. He captured everything so beautifully and I have memories here that I will cherish forever. Not everyone renews their vows but what I can say is that it was the most incredible experience of my life (apart from marrying Rob the first time and having my kids). I wanted to share with you the pics of the day with my beautiful family and my amazing friends. It was emotional, beautiful and so much fun. If its something you are considering doing then do it. Having my kids with me made it so much more special and being able to marry the love of my life again was truly amazing. I cried pretty much all through the ceremony as this time we wrote our own vows and made it so much more personal.
A couple of weeks ago I was invited to attend a beautiful event hosted and put together by ex Elle magazine editor Jackie Burger. Jackie created Salon 58 after leaving the magazine industry to create an environment where women can come together either as a group or individually to learn how to work with skincare, makeup and styling themselves. Believe it or not a lot of women struggle with makeup application and what skincare to use and what works best it can be really confusing.
One of my favourite brands Lancome celebrates 80 years this year, its a brand that is linked with amazing and beautiful role models to help represent what Lancome is all about. Even more exciting is that one of my idol makeup artists Lisa Eldridge is now the new creative director. The brand is all about impeccable French style and a celebration of femininity with countless innovative skincare products, beautiful fragrances and amazing makeup products.
I was asked the other day what my New Year resolutions would be and to be honest at the point I hadn't really thought about it but since thinking about it I have made a list of how I want to improve my life, my work and my blog. So here it is with some new additions that will be happening to Shahnaz Loves Beauty:
Its the festive season Christmas Eve is finally here and its going to be lots of parties starting from tonight. So I thought why not go for a shimmery christmas party nail that has a little Christmas feel to it. Normally I don't get 5 minutes to paint my nails but since I am officially on holiday I thought I would have a little pamper me time and and share the look with you.
Its been almost two years since I started shahnazlvesbeauty which I can't quite believe and I have to say I have loved every minute of it. When I started out I didn't have a clue what I was doing let alone take a decent pic which I used my iphone by the way and photoshop well don't even go there. I thought I would write a post to share with my readers on some beauty blogging tips that have really helped me.
