Happy Shoesday Ladies!

Even though it is officially spring, the weather is yet to get with the program. So socks and boots are still the order of the day for me.

Today's shoe is a leather/suede combo, with gold accents, and I love it. It is really comfortable, the heel is just the right height, not too high, but just high enough. 

The best part of this was the price, I bought this from Ackerman's this winter, for less than R200. 


Have a good shoesday ladies!

Tomorrow I am starting a new weekly installment called "Shop My Stash" keep a look out!

Mani Monday with LA Girl 3D Effects in Black Illusion!

I waited really really long for this collection to come to SA after seeing swatches of them. 


This is how LA Girl describes this range:

3D Effects Hologram nail polish is made up of tiny holographic particles that create a spectacular 3D effect when applied to nails. Complemented by the vibrant colors available in this collection, these iridescent specks glisten and gleam, giving nails a brilliant holographic look.


The collection has a total of eight colours, of which I got all! 


This one is called Black Illusion, and is just stunning, it is a glossy black with what looks like gold dust in it. I love how easy it is to get interesting looking nails these days. This polish is extremely smooth, and two coats is perfection. It dries quickly too. 

Have you gotten your hands on any of these yet?

Fancying Friday with REN!

Happy Friday Ladies!

My skin has been all sorts of crazy recently, between breakouts and dry flaky skin, I do not know what to do anymore! I am hoping I can blame it all on global warming, or at least on this erratic weather!

The dry skin range from REN looks amazing and is at the top of my list to get my skin under control again.


Ultra Moisture Day Cream

A replenishing complex that leaves dry skin soothed, optimally hydrated and looking beautifully healthy.


Rose O¹² Moisture Defence Serum

An ultra-moisturising oil formulated to give dry and dehydrated skin a powerful shield to lock in moisture and restore glowing softness, comfort and radiance. 


Max Moisture Concentrate

A concentrate formulated to dramatically hydrate and replenish the skin leaving it visibly plumped, smoothed and comfortable.

And now for the star product! Life is getting busier and busier, and as much as I try to squeeze in time to treat my skin to a mask once a week, I mostly fail. Enter the 1 minute facial! 

A transforming treatment that instantly revitalizes and visibly rejuvenates the skin. Formulated with potent, water-activated Vitamin C it neutralizes urban grey in a flash to leave skin looking firm, toned and smoothed while reducing signs of fatigue, photo-ageing and skin imperfections. Skin instantly glows with renewed health and radiance.
