Sale away with me 🛍🛍🛍🛍🛍🛍

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!

A POP of colour!

Think luscious lips…long sexy lashes…flawless skin with a burst of colour on your cheeks.
A photographer. An incredibly talented make up artist. Bubbly & strawberries. Smiles all round. The full red carpet treatment!
You wouldn’t be faulted for thinking a model is being primed for a major photoshoot…except the models were lucky Grazia Magazine readers who won the opportunity to experience a morning of beauty with Clinique & Grazia!

I made my way to the Clinique counter at Edgars Sandton City & was welcomed by Clinique consultants and Clinique & Grazia representatives.
I waited in anticipation whilst mingling with the other winners, surrounded by a myriad of colour whilst sipping on sweet sparkling beverages & snacking on strawberries.

Before long I was asked to take a seat at the cosmetics counter for my beauty experience to commence!
I felt like a kid in a candy store…and the lighting, atmosphere & pops of colour further enhanced that excitement!

My consultant, the gorgeous Sipho cleansed my face using the Take The Day Off Cleansing Milk, which left my skin feeling smooth & soft. An apt name as I felt like Id taken the day off with all this pampering! This cleanser is great on all skin types & what’s best is that it’s residual free.
The Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion further added to my skin feeling smooth & supple. This is a lovely winter product as it keeps the skin moisturized all day & can be used under a night cream for very dry skin needing extra pampering.
Sipho chatted with me, informing me on every product he was using & also answered all the questions I had for him…I had many 😉
He proceeded to prime my skin for the foundation application, using the Superprimer, followed by the Even Better Makeup liquid foundation with sunscreen. The foundation felt incredible on my skin, light & natural, which I loved instantly. It’s on my list of “Must Haves”.
The Clinique Blushes left my cheekbones glowing but still lovely for a day time look.
The Extreme Volume Mascara gave my lashes a longer more dramatic look. Highly recommended!
My look ended with a Quickliner and two pops of pink for my lips. As someone who’s been afraid of colour on my lips as I’ve never quite found a colour to suit my skin tone, I threw caution to the wind & we combined the Nude Pop & Cherry Pop lipsticks to give me a colour that looked delectable 🙂

Voila! I looked my look – I couldn’t believe the transformation! Shows what great make up & expert application can do for ones look!

I finished off my experience by chatting to Sipho about contouring & we played with the Chubby Stick Sculpting Countour & Sculpting Highlight. If you want to perfect the look & Countour like a pro, you have got to try these! My “Must Haves” list grows longer by the day 🙂

Contour like a pro!

Contour like a pro!

We were all treated to stunning goodie bags & magazines, courtesy of our hosts for the morning. The products inside…one word – fabulous…just as the beauty experience…

Thank you Grazia & Clinique

Thank you Grazia & Clinique

I learnt not to be afraid of colour but rather embrace it & use it to further enhance my features & my confidence! Make up can be fun, sexy and expressive – make it your best friend!

My OOTD was my STAR knit from Identity, Leather leggings from YDE, OTK boots from Aldo, crossover bag from Colette Hayman and finished off with MU by Clinique!

Until next time…people will stare, make it worth their while!

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!

Fun, Glitz & Glamour - the Stuttafords way!

Fun, Glitz & Glamour – the Stuttafords way!

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
