Sale away with me πŸ›πŸ›πŸ›πŸ›πŸ›πŸ›

When you open your inbox and that emotive four lettered red word we all love flashes before your very eyes, it can only mean one thing SALE!!!!!!!!

Now who doesn’t love a good sale?!!! Apart from the H&M X Balmain sale, sales in South Africa are nothing like a scene out of “Confessions of a Shopaholic“, so with the weekend just over the horizon I thought I’d share a few of the April deals with you!

Nine West is giving you 30% off all Handbags & Wallets until the 10th of April. I don’t need to tell you how gorgeous & well crafted their products are & it would make the perfect spoil or gift!

The Body Shop is a big favorite of mine & with the lack of cruelty free skincare in SA, I’ve recently started using their range & am loving it. They have a 30% off for 3 days only sale so head along for the perfect pamper for you, great bachelorette ideas, or baby shower pamper for the mom to be.
If you’re working on your wanderlist like I am then look no further than Qatar Airways for their 20% off 58 of your favorite destinations. No excuse not to get another stamp on your passport!

Truworths is a trusted name in SA for many years. I’ve always liked their Inwear Range & own a few of the colorful Ginger Mary pieces. It’s the perfect time to add to my cupboard with their REAL Sale now on!

Spree is your must for all occasions! You can snatch up SA designer pieces at sale prices. Their 3rd birthday sale offers up to 50% off!!! I’m smiling from ear to ear knowing I will have my little paws on a Gert-Johan Coetzee gown very soon!

Steve Madden is offering the shoe lovers a buy one & get 50% off your second purchase until Sunday. Their brand is a firm favorite here in SA & in my closet too so spoil yourself, life’s short, get a pair in every color!

Identity stocks some greatly priced items that are perfect for weekends & varsity days. With their sale now on, you can stock up without buyers remorse or breaking the bank.

On that note, happy shopping lovelies!

Shear delight!

Experiment all you want, your tresses will grow back πŸ˜‰ It’s been something I’ve always said & certainly still believe.

Through the years I’ve gone from the short tomboy look – longing for tresses; to long “spiral curls” (giving away my age here); to the only red head in my family!

I’ve had experimental bits of blonde; an incredibly deep winter violet; sleek jet black & most recently an unintentional ombrΓ©!

Currently I’m au naturale – but longing for some highlights!

I also believe that my relationship with my stylist is a personal affair – there’s an amount of trust placed in him/her. Having not been to a stylist in a long time I called up Daleen, a stylist that had been with Gary Rom for years but due to impending closure at her branch, had now moved to the renowned PHD Hairdressing in the trendy suburb of Greenside, Johannesburg.

From the second I got to the front door & was greeted by name & ushered inside (to me the small things matter), I already felt at home at PHD!

It was agreed, the plan of action was a side fringe & a desperately needed trim. I enjoy Daleen being my stylist as she never imposes her will on me. She listens & gives me expert advice however the end decision is always mine!

As I settled at the wash room I enjoyed the music, lighting & sights of 5th Avenue. I had my hair washed which followed conditioning & a luxuriating massage.

When I got to the stylists chair I was ready for a delicious cappuccino & for my eagerly awaited do.

The end result was what I would call alluring! I loved the style, the shine & just the way it made me feel!

I’m a sucker for good nourishment so my eye caught the Kevin Murphy range of products. I enquired on this Australian brand & the toss up was between Redken & the Kevin Murphy Plumping Line…the little bunny logo proudly announcing that every supplier of every product used in this brand was not tested on animals got my absolute vote! I’ve used it a few times & I’m hooked!

So whilst this is not a sponsored blog, if you’re in need of a good hairstylist I can certainly recommend PHD & specifically Daleen!

If you are fussy in terms of what products you use, try the range from Kevin Murphy, you will truly enjoy it!

If not take a look at the website for something you may enjoy as they stock everything from Tangle Teezer to Veaudry to name a few brands, and even have the great brand Bluebeards Revenge if you’d like to spoil your man!

I’d love to hear your thoughts on PHD if you’ve been there or your favs & not-so-favs…lets share those hair stories lovelies!

So until my next blog remember that life’s too short for a bad hair day!

Loving the look!
