A short post on how I love Pinterest!
New Year’s resolutions…do you do them? Do you stick with it? I don’t (well, I usually have ideas but I never keep to them for long). So I thought, let’s rather set some goals for 2019 (Isn’t that the same as a resolution? Am I just trying to trick my brain? Maybe…). Beauty goals: Improve… Continue reading Goals Goals Goals
I see items I would like to try out all the time, whether new or old. So I thought I’d put together a short list of some of them and call it a Christmas wish list!
At the Dischem Beauty Fair I recently purchased the (newly available in SA) L.A Girl PRO.matte foundation. I’ve been waiting for this foundation to be released here since I first heard of it! I have oily (recently somewhat combination) skin and if this works like it’s been said to, it would be a God send!… Continue reading LA Girl PRO.matte foundation

The tube says: "creamy eyeshadow for an incredible metallic and vibrant finish" and that it definitely is!… Continue reading Essence Metal Shock Eyeshadow
Due to the fact that I regularly wear gel polish on my nails and have to soak it off, my cuticles and surrounding nail area can get very dry. I'm always applying nail oil - usually Essence nail oil. Recently I saw this in an Avon catalog and thought I'd give it a try. I'm… Continue reading Avon Footworks Nail and Cuticle Serum
About a year ago I decided to start trying to do my own gel nails. I used to go to a salon to get my nails done, but having to go every 3-4 weeks at around R300 a shot started adding up. I’ve seen and heard about the Maskscara brand of Gel-It polish and thought… Continue reading Gel Nails DIY
