Benefit Cosmetics is Back + Prices


This time last week I was waiting in anticipation for Thursday to arrive. What was so special about this day you ask? It was the day that I would be attending the Benefit (re)launch in Cape Town. I knew that even if they served zoo biscuits and made us stand all afternoon I would still enjoy every second of it and that’s exactly what I did –  enjoy it. We were treated to a limo ride, a buffet of sweet treats, a candy bar, sushi, cocktails, cabaret dancers draped in feathers and best of all Benefit cosmetic counters (with makeup artists) for as far as the eye could see. Needless to say that’s where I spent most of time.

My Essie Winter 2015 Favourites


When I think about Winter time the last thing that comes to mind is dancing. There will be no Jiggling here. Well, that is unless you count the movement of all the extra fat I will undoubtedly acquire during the colder months. But look at me going completely off topic. You are here to see my three favourite shades from Essie’s Winter collection – Jiggle Hi, Jiggle Low. The first word that comes to mind when you take a peek at the six shades is ‘surprising’. This isn’t one of those collections that shouts Winter Time or conquers up images of snowball fights, fluffy sweaters and hot chocolate by the fire. To be completely honest this collection makes me think of Summer and peach daiquiris by the pool. But is that such a bad thing?

{June} Like, Love & Longing for…


I apologise in advance if today’s post causes you to jump into your car and speed off to the closest mall, but it would’ve been rude for me not share all the lovely things I’ve been eyeballing this past month. I don’t know about you but I often go shopping in my head and create virtual wishlists. Do any of these tidbits catch your fancy?
