You can’t get through a day without displaying multiple expressions on your faces. A coffee break with a friend will put a smile on your face, a job interview will cause your face to scrunch up with worry and that new comedy at the movies will have you roaring with laughter. You can’t help but showcase these emotions on your face and these moods inevitably lead to fine lines. While I love a hearty laugh and sharing a smile with a friend, I don’t love what these expressions do to my skin. But those pesky expression lines are certainly not going to stop me from living my life to the fullest. I love my expressions, but I’m ready to lose the lines. Go check out my previous posts on a few of my #BeautifulHabits as well as my thoughts on the products I’m going to be giving away down below.
Iconic fashion designer, Diane von Furstenberg said it best – “Ageing is out of your control. How you handle it, though, is in your hands.” Throughout life, there are certain things which are inescapable and ageing is undeniably one of those things.

That agitation, bordering on hysteria, is usually exacerbated by a quick peek in the mirror and confirmation is given of new wrinkles cropping up.
As women, we are very complicated creatures. An average day is filled with numerous emotions and in turn countless facial expressions. We smile, we laugh, we frown and of course, we worry. These diverse feelings show up on our faces and age us a little bit faster. But, this shouldn’t stop us from enjoying our lives, embracing our moods and ageing gracefully. Let’s be honest – that’s why anti-aging skincare was invented. Am I right? The POND’S Age Miracle range makes a bold statement. They claim that you can look up to 10-years younger. The Age Miracle range has been formulated with 6 powerful anti-aging actives including Retinol, Retinol boosters and CLA (stimulates new cell production).
It’s video time. You haven’t seen my face in a video for a very long time, but I’m back with something new. So tell me something – what’s your favourite use for Vaseline petroleum jelly? Go on, tell me. I’m sharing my 5 best beauty hacks in the video down below. I think we are all too familiar with this household product, but many of you might not know exactly how versatile Vaseline really is. I hope you learn something new.
A woody wonderland of lush grasses and towering trees beckoned me into a cocoon of calmness as I entered the gates of Le Franschhoek Hotel & Spa a fortnight ago. As challenging as it may be to find the words to describe the freeze-frame perfection of the forested land that enveloped this hotel, I’ll still do my best to lure you into images of verdant vineyards, fragrant clumps of lavender and majestic serrated mountain views.
