Mani Monday ~ Essie’s Too Too Hot

The true test of a nail polish for me is the duration it stays on my nails without chipping the time it takes to dry its consistency I am pretty hard on my nails so I choose to keep them short because they are paper thin and break easily. I bought this Essie shade – Too Too […] Read more…

Rimmel Oh My Gloss! Oil Tints

About 2 months ago I saw a teaser post on Rimmel SA’s Instagram feed that new lip oils were arriving and I was super excited! I can’t get through a day without applying lipstick / lipgloss / lip balm a number of times to my lips to stop them feeling dry and itchy, so I was very […] Read more…

Me Time

This year I’ve tried to change my routine up a bit and include some planned “me time” to unwind and focus on my needs. When work and life become chaotic (seems to be the chorus of my life) I often always forget to just breathe and plan my day so that I get some special time […] Read more…

Mani Monday ~ Revlon Win Big

I haven’t done a Mani Monday post on my blog in forever (partly because I haven’t blogged a lot lately and partly because I haven’t done my nails in even longer which I am working on getting better at), but I did share this Revlon Colorstay Gel Envy shade on my social media a little […] Read more…

Hello May

Hello May I can’t believe it is the 1st day of the 5th month of the year. Where has this year gone too?!? It some ways it feels like only a week or two has passed since I wrote my post about my word of the year, and in other ways it feels like a year […] Read more…

Review: Pantene Pro-V Repair & Protect

Generally when you’ve had a bad experience with a product, you tend to stay away from the brand for good. Well, sometimes you need to go back and try the products again and see what happens. I have always loved the smell of the original Pantene range and remember clearly when it first came out. The […] Read more…

ColourPop Haul

I first discovered ColourPop on social media and started following them on SnapChat to find out more. There aren’t many make-up brands (in my opinion) that get it right on SnapChat and I honestly love how ColourPop (@ColourPopCo) really gives you a behind-the-scenes view of how the products are developed and packaged. Jordynn and Sharon run the […] Read more…

Mani Monday: Minimalist nails

It’s been forever since I last did a mani Monday post and tonight I decided that instead of doing a post on all the red / pink / Valentine’s Day-inspired nail art that I have seen over the last two days on social media, I wanted to rather show you my new mani obsession – nude […] Read more…

How would you eat your Nutrific biscuit?

I literally can’t function in the morning if I’ve not had breakfast! It’s like the “on” switch for my body because when I wake up just after 05:00, my stomach is already grumbling for some food. It amazes me when people tell me they don’t eat breakfast because it’s the same thing every day which is boring or it’s […] Read more…

My word for 2017: Me

After New Years I saw more people choosing a particular word that they wanted to focus on for 2017 instead of coming up with a long list of resolutions that they would most likely not even stick to. I quite liked the idea of choosing a word and I considered a few for myself – “invest”, “build”, and […] Read more…

Depotting your MAC eyeshadows

“Depot MAC eyeshadows” was a line item on my to-do list for probably about a year. Maybe even a little longer. I had seen a DIY Pinterest post on how to do this and decided I wanted to try this out. I love the freedom of creating my own MAC eyeshadow palettes / quads and […] Read more…

Avon Perfectly Matte Lipsticks

If you read my review a few months ago, you’ll know that I instantly fell in love with the new Avon Perfectly Matte Lipsticks! They really surpassed my expectations and met pretty much all of my criteria for a good matte lipstick – including not drying my lips out. I was so super excited to receive […] Read more…

Wednesday’s Words of Wisdom

Like me, I’m sure you’re all feeling super tired as the year starts winding down (even though at times it feels like it is speeding up and getting more chaotic). 2016 has been particularly challenging for me, but equally rewarding at the same time. Instead of only focussing on all the bad things and challenges that you’ve […] Read more…
