Hey guys! Last week I had the pleasure of being invited to the Michelangelo Spa in Sandton for the BABOR Skinovage relaunch. We started the day off with a champagne breakfast,  followed by a brief of why we were there, as well as what to expect throughout the day. I must say, I was very excited for what followed next – The BABOR Flatlay Challenge. As a content curator, it gets quite tricky when you want to play around and take images of products during  an event. At this particular event,  we were afforded not only the time but the space to fully experience the brand as well as capture it to best suit our personal aesthetic as you may call it. S/O to the team that put this challenge together, I’m so appreciative of their  efforts. Only 30% of what your skin looks like is actually based on your…

Introduced in 2015, the NIVEA Perfect & Radiant was developed specifically for women with dark skin ( African Women ). The NIVEA Perfect & Radiant range offers a comprehensive solution for uneven toned skin, with its full range of cleansing and care products for all skin types. The No1 skin problem amongst women in SA is having dull and uneven ( dark marks ) skin tone. I’ve had my fair share of such  an experience especially because I used to spend a lot of time on the sporting field – in the scorching sun! What made matters worse is that at the time I didn’t have a skin care routine in place. Fast forward to this present moment, I’m now fully aware  of the benefits of cleansing my skin, as well as the fact that I can actually have a good skin routine in place at an affordable price -…

As we wrap up the month of World Environment Day ( 5 June ) , I thought I should share my concern for the environment and that I am all for sustainable fashion. Did you know that the fashion industry is ranked as the worlds second biggest polluter after the petrochemical industry?!  After doing some reading, I’ve come to learn that Stella McCartney is one of the designers who has been at the forefront of the green movement. Living green through her personal life and through the world of fashion. Although it has taken quite some time, Stella is one of the designers to have paved a way many others have since followed. Lacoste recently crafted 10 new polo shirts, replacing their iconic crocodile with 10 endangered species. H&M is another brand to have switched up their practices as seen in their seventh Conscious Exclusive collection, launched 19 April 2018.…

On Friday, 13 April, I had the pleasure of being hosted by the Eucerin team for their media launch and high tea at The Maslow. As I entered the conference venue, I was greeted by branding which clearly communicated “usingaye”, as we would say in Zulu, which was the Eucerin DermoPURIFYER range. Although I’ve never had acne, I found it important I share the information I’ve learned. With 13 400 reported internet searches in South Africa on acne per month, it’s evident such a product is needed in the market. The launch kick started with presentations and a scientific talk by Dr M. Reinholz. Dr Reinholz has completed his doctoral thesis in the devision in Clinical Pharmacology and now specializes as a dermatologist, has his own scientific working group and is also a lecturer. Trust me, this was all evident as he delivered an enlightening presentation. The presentation gave a…

A quick glimpse into the world of beauty and my favorite picks from the LCN Spring range “La Belle Vie”, a French interpretation of spring. Although we are currently crossing over from Summer into Autumn in South Africa, the range is still relevant to our climate and our beauty needs. What I’ve always enjoyed about the LCN Colour Gel is how their high pigment density allows for a very thin application, as well as the durability of the colors. Chunky, bulky nails are a thing of the past and no one should walking around with unnatural looking nails. LCN Nail Polish – “La Belle Vie” Range The top three colors that I absolutely believe every lady should have this season are French Mauve, A unicorn in Paris as well as Copper Rose. My nails are currently painted in French Mauve, a soft lilac color, which isn’t necessarily a big jump…
