I reached 100 Instagram followers! I know it's not a lot and it's a long way off from 1000, but to me it means something and to celebrate that I will be having a mini giveaway! It's not a huge prize, but it's something free! Included in the giveaway: Essence The Gel nail polish in… Continue reading Mini Giveaway!
Boxycharm subscription service (USA)
I recently subscribed to famed USA beauty subscription service Boxycharm. It works like Rubybox used to work - for a monthly fee you get a box of beauty/cosmetic goodies. But, problem: it's in the USA. Solution - Aramex Global Shopper (AGS)! Yay! With AGS you get various shipping addresses around the world. Say you want… Continue reading Boxycharm subscription service (USA)
NYC Get it All Foundation stick
NYC stands for New York Color. It's an extremely budget friendly brand in the USA (mostly up to $4.99). I bought this foundation stick in the shade "ivory". Unfortunately there are no cosmetic testers in the USA in supermarkets/drugstores, so I had to choose a shade on sight only. This product offers light covering in… Continue reading NYC Get it All Foundation stick
e.l.f Perfect Blend Concealer
I recently went to the USA on holiday and brought back loads of random cosmetics. I'll try to do a (shortish) post about each one, seeing as the products aren't available in SA (I really do wish we had more major products available in our stores, there are so many fantastic brands and products that… Continue reading e.l.f Perfect Blend Concealer

According to the Sorbet website (Smoothing under eye mask): "Soothing, brightening… Continue reading Bright eyes
Be the light
For a while now there’s been a major online hoo-ha about this product finally being available in South Africa. Despite the fact that I have numerous highlighters already, I was amped to purchase this mostly due to the hype that surrounded this. You know curiosity and all that. So last weekend I ended up in… Continue reading Be the light
I only recently stumbled upon this brand, and I’m totally hooked. When you step into one of the shops you can’t help but smell all these amazing things – a lot of time was spent sticking my nose into jars and inhaling wonderful aromas. Think coconut, chocolate, lime, peach, papaya, mud pie…the list goes on… Continue reading Hey Gorgeous!
A new adventure
I got this idea to start a beauty blog…I follow quite a few and always find it interesting to read and learn about new products. I also have enough cosmetics/makeup/toiletries/stuff to write about until around 2020, so I might as well use my experiences to help others (if anyone’s interested…)? One friend suggested that I… Continue reading A new adventure
