DIY| HYDRATING 'PEEL OFF' FACE MASK


As part of my skincare routine, I love to apply a facial mask once or twice a week for that extra bit of nourishment and pampering. I have been loving making my own facial masks lately and since it is Sunday, a day I usually reserve for getting some mind, body and soul rejuvenation, I’ve decided to share some of my favourite DIY masks so that you can also experience the fulfilment of homemade cosmetic splendour. 

I’ll be sharing the DIY masks over a three week period (trying to keep my posts short ‘n sweet) and this week we’ll be looking at a hydrating ‘peel off’ mask.

REVIEW| NYX COSMETICS HAUL


NYX Cosmetics is definitely in my good books this year! The brand recently updated their makeup collection across several Clicks stores in South Africa and will be launching a much anticipated #WorldOfNYX display at Menlyn Park, Pretoria next week Friday. To say that I'm excited would truly be an understatement! I got my hands on a few of the new products that have been launched and will surely be at the #WorldOfNYX grand opening, so let's see what's good...

TRENDS| SS16 MAKEUP TRENDS I'M LOVING (& YOU SHOULD TRY)




I love makeup but I'm probably the least adventurous person when it comes to colour. I typically stick to my bronzes, golds and nudes however this year I've felt an unshakeable desire to get out of my comfort zone and surrender myself to the season's striking orange-red lips, royal blue liners and flirty spider lashes.

REVIEW| AFFORDABLE SPRING/SUMMER PERFUMES - ZARA

ZARA SOUTH AFRICA
 
"A woman who doesn't wear perfume has no future". 

The legendary Coco Chanel is quoted to having said that and while I do not agree with her sentiments, I can attest that perfume has a way of creating a vision, a fantasy if you may, for the wearer. It can take you from a sophisticated black-tie dinner to a breezy, sun-kissed palm-lined beachfront just from the mere bouquet of the fragrance. 

Designer perfumes are my ideal choice for a memorable scent, however they do come with a hefty price tag. So, to make sure that I can keep them in my perfume collection for a longer time (while I save up for a new fragrance), I like to alternate with more affordable scents and in this post, I share my two current fave spring/summer scents from Zara.

HAIR| MY RELAXED HAIR ESSENTIALS


"What do you use on your hair?"

This one question has followed me through shopping malls, hair salons, night outs, public toilets...you name it. If my hair is worn down I'm almost guaranteed to get frisked with that one question but I won't lie, it does feel good to get that little bit of recognition...kinda feels like a 'good job' pat on the back. In those instances I often just name the brand and keep it moving because honestly, to name each and every single product would take forever but since I have a blog, I thought I'd share a bit more on what I currently have in my hair care stash...
