I’ve had the most hectic week and can’t wait to spend this one recharging (ie putting on a face mask and watching Twin Peaks). I’ve spent the week on set shooting ad campaigns, and was usually found bugging the make-up artist (the AMAZING Renee de Wit- check out her work for some inspiration) for advice. Here are a couple of pics…

A spot of Beauty Shopping
For any one who knows me well, they’ll know that I’m a frugal gal and find the thought of parting with my pennies a little bit difficult. This is mostly because as I’ve mentioned before, I used to be addicted to buying all the products.But since moving back to SA after my stint in Canada (due to lack of space in my then matchbox flat) I tend be a lot pickier when it comes to my beauty buying…
Happy Monday lovely readers, hope your morning is going just as well as mine. I’ve been up since 6am, had my Vida fix, done a little workout and I’m ready to dominate today*
*I’m probably going to be falling asleep at my desk in about 45 minutes, so there’s that.
Today, because it’s Monday and I’m desperately trying to get through the day without killing someone in the office in the process, I’m…
On Trend: Winter Red/Plum Lips
And it’s Friday again! Here’s a little tutorial that you may want to try out over the weekend if you’ve been loving dark lips lately. I’ve been following this trend since last year even and I’m happy it’s still making the rounds this year too :) So get your vamp on!
I used Maybelline’s The Colossal in 100% black, MAC lip pencil in Nightmoth, Laura Mercier lipstick in Mod, MAC shadow…
Here’s a round up of the latest beauty news flittering around the web/verse are the moment:

Nails Inc Christmas Cracker Review
So I am currently on a self-imposed spending ban. I have enough make-up to sponsor the next 10 seasons of Ru Paul’s Drag Race, and enough’s enough! (Pending Jodi bringing me the Urban Decay setting spray from England, but I digress)
Before that came into effect though, I got the deal of the century! 6 Nails Inc colours for R140 = insane. They came in the form of the Nails IncChris…
Hair crushes and braid obsessions
Happy Monday lovelies, I know how tough it was to get out of bed this morning, and that first cup of coffee just didn’t quite cut it. So make your second cup and settle down, this post is aaaaaaall visual.
So a few days ago I discovered a new blog that I just cannot stop reading/obsessing over. Barefoot Blonde has the most amazing hair! I literally cannot stop stalking her on instagram and…
New favourites from The Body Shop
A week ago The Body Shop had a sale happy hour, and as usual I couldn’t resist checking it out! Last weekwe told you about the new Body Shop body sorbets, which I’m definitely going to pick up in the summertime. In the meantime I chose their other 3 new releases to try out: Instablur (this has been on my lust list since it came out!), the Tea Tree Flawless BB Cream, and the Vitamin…
Essentials for in the Plane
Hello ol’ chap, what-what whatwhat. I’m currently writing this post from London, England which means I got on a plane for 14 hours, waited around an airport for an unbelievably long time, got on another plane for an hour and finally arrived in London (sans luggage but it eventually found me).
Yo, I’m in London town
A few years ago the queen, Lisa Eldridge, did a video talking about her in flight…
Keeping the brass out: Gentian violet for blonde hair and all that jazz
Gentian violet. Not jensen or genstan violet. Gentian, pronounced “gen” “shen”. What is it you say? Gentian violet is an antiseptic dye used to treat fungal infections on skin. Kinda like monkey blood, that bright red stuff your school teacher put on your cuts and scraps when you got bumped up in pre-school. You can buy it from any pharmacy for next to nothing :). Awesome! So why do people use it…
