My Essie Winter Collection 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?

5 Favourites Friday ♥



1. Nothing beats a hot cup of coffee on a cold day. Am I right, or am I right? Earlier this year Beanies coffee arrived in S.A and I searched high and low for them in every Checkers in my area. I finally found a branch that only had “Double Chocolate” and naturally I grabbed it without a second thought. I’m not usually a flavoured coffee type of girl but the flavours sounded so irresistible I couldn’t resist picking up a bottle or two. I ended up getting the chocolate instant and a bag of “Cinder Toffee” ground coffee. The strange thing is that although I would normally prefer the idea of cinder toffee over chocolate I actually prefer the little bottle-o-instant. The flavour is more concentrated but at the same time not overpowering. Sometimes flavoured coffees are saccharine sweet and a tad bit nauseating. However, the Beanies coffee is easy to drink and did I mention that they smell divine. Hmmm. They also contain less than 2 calories per serving. 100% sugar-free and suitable for vegetarians & vegans! Instant coffee is R39.99 at Checkers and the ground coffee is about R60 at Checkers.

5 Favourites Friday ♥


I’ve been trying to upload this video since Friday and unfortunately whatever could go wrong did go wrong. The perfectionist that I am was troubled by the idea of not being able to showcase my 5 Favourites Friday on an actual Friday. But at the end of the day at least I have a new video up so yippee for that.

My Essie Fall/Autumn 2015 Favourites


When it comes to Winter and we’re talking about weather then I can’t say I’m the biggest fan. Sure, there are a few things that I find appealing such as hot chocolate, soups, scarves and warm blankets, but when it comes to the cold I’ll swap it for warm, beach weather any day. However, the one thing about the cooler months that actually excites me are the Winter nail polish shades – dark, moody colours that make my heart and eyes happy. I was recently sent a huge suitcase (yes, a suitcase) filled with a whole lot of Essie polishes. So naturally I kept some for myself. A girl has the right to be a little bit selfish every now and again, doesn’t she? But then again I also shared some with you guys when I hosted my Essie giveaway last month. See, I’m not so bad.
