Utopia at the Mall of Africa

If heaven had a shopping center, I’d imagine it would look similar to the most talked about Mall in South Africa – The Mall of Africa

 

Today saw the fabulous opening of this anticipated mall with everything from sand art to celebrities, from Master Chef winning meals to renowned DJs and alluring fashion to queues of shoppers for kilometers. 

This impressive shopping center boasts 130 000m2 of retail space, 2.4kms of shopping for every brand your heart desires, with a design, inspired from Africa’s geological features & iconic landscapes, leaves you in total awe! 

Whether walking through the Forest Walk  Court (think Congos amazing rain forest), slowing down at the Desert Court (picture desert regions in North Africa), looking to relax at the Court of Great Lakes (imagine the Great Lakes of Africa), grabbing a glass of bubbly at the Champagne Bar at the Crystal Court (picture diamonds, crystals & precious minerals), or pampering at the Oleum Court (taking inspiration from trade & oil wealth in Africa), this prestigious Mall has something to suit each & every taste. 

With 6500 parking bays & 24 entrances, finding the most loved & lusted after local & international brands makes this the ultimate shopping experience. Free wifi is sure to put smiles on every shoppers face (as it did to all bloggers & media today)  & the convenience of dedicated über pick up zones is certainly a win if like me, finding the prefect parking spot is always a challenge. 

You will find this R5bn mall at Lone Creek & Magwa Crescent, Waterfall City in Midrand. Stores open from Monday to Saturday 9am to 8pm, Sundays & Public holidays 10am to 8pm. On that note, enjoy the long weekend shopping up a storm at the Mall of Africa & please share your thoughts on the experience & your latest purchases too with me here.

Whilst I drool over the latest at Zara Home, The Kooples and Armani Exchange, only 3 of the 300 stores at Mall of Africa, I’m thinking I like my money where I can see it..In my closet 😉

Raise a brow!

Nothing frames a face more beautifully than perfectly shaped eyebrows…

Stuttafords, the leaders in bringing some of the worlds best brands to South Africa such as Banana Republic, Calvin Klein, Jo Malone, Payot, Stila and Ted Baker, to name a few, now bring you the exciting Los Angeles brand Billion Dollar Brows!

Stuttafords treated us to the VIP Launch of this exciting brand last week at their Sandton City store in Johannesburg. In true Stuttafords style the event was filled with fun, style, glamour, celebs and beauty!

My #OOTD was Jeans & White collared shirt both Guess from Stuttafords. Socialite jersey from the Free range at Edgars. OTK Aldo Black boots (a must have for Jozi winters). Canary yellow Bag & accessories by Colette Hayman. MU by MAC 

We learned about the importance of having defined eyebrows and contrary to some belief, that it doesn’t have to cost a fortune to have them.

The Billion Dollar Brow range was so impressive – I wanted to get two of everything!

However if I was forced to choose just two products …

My first would be the top selling Universal Brow Pencil. This self-sharpening pencil, which suits all colors & skin tones, blends in beautifully with your natural brows

Second would definitely be the Brow Boost Gel. This conditioning gel strengthens thin brows with a visible difference in just 30 days!

Take a look at their website for a full range of the products, you won’t be disappointed…

From the Brow Buddy (available in pink *happy dance*) to Brow Powders, the most fabulous Tweezers to sexy Glitter Brow Gels, the Billion Dollar Brows range is a must have for yourself & would make a great gift for your bestie too!

Need another reason to splurge on this brand, Billion Dollar Brows is not tested on animals! For a bunny-hugger like me, this just seals the deal 😉

I want them ALL!

I want them ALL!

Billion Dollar Brows since launching in LA now have representation in 13 countries including South Africa…so take back your brows by getting down to your closest Stuttafords store today & proudly raise a brow with Billion Dollar Brows!

Until next time remember, if letters had eyebrows, they would be arched
