Shattered Mani Monday with OPI


Happy Mani Monday!

For today's mani I tried a shatter polish by OPI called "Pink Shatter"

This is the first time I am using a shatter polish, and I am not much of a fan. I think it looks like a royal mess, and possibly could work for a Halloween mani.

For the base coat I used "Gold All Night" by Maybelline.

What are your thoughts?

EOS in South Africa... #Awesome!

Have you heard of the cult lip product EOS?


If not, are you living under a rock?

EOS stands for Evolution Of Smooth, and smooth my lips are! 

Hashtag Awesome, an up and coming online store recently sent me an EOS lip balm to review. This sphere shaped lip balm was not available in SA until recently, and luckily you too can get yours at Hashtag Awesome HERE

Besides the lip balms (which are the normal ones and the swirly ones) they also stock the hand lotion. I would love to try the swirly balm in vanilla mint and the hand lotion in berry blossom.

eos Lip Balm - Honeysuckle Honeydew

EOS Lip Balm (Honeysuckle Honeydew) R99

I was sent the Honeysuckle and Honeydew balm. It smells amazing, I want to just smell my lips all day long. It is super moisturising too, I am addicted to lip balm, and when I use EOS I find I don't need to reapply as often as I usually would.

EOS lip balm is 95% organic, 100% natural, and paraben and petrolatum free. Packed with antioxidant-rich vitamin E, soothing shea butter and jojoba oil, EOS keeps your lips moist, soft and sensationally smooth.

Another thing I love about this balm is the sphere shape. You know us ladies with those huge handbags who can't find anything in it? Well, the size of the EOS balm makes it easy to find, and so less time scrounging around.  

If you are still not convinced, have a look at the long list of celebs who use and love EOS.

Miley Cyrus, Kim Kardashian, Nicole Scherzinger, Jennifer Hudson, Kylie Jenner, Kesha, Stacy Keibler, Kristin Cavallari, Sasha Pieterse, Jennifer Lopez, Demi Lovato, Gwen Stefani...

And the list goes on... For a full list click HERE

Aside from EOS, you can also buy luxury coloured toilet paper by Renova. (For the Kris Jenner in all of us) 

Renova Crystal Pack - Black



And finally they also stock Urban Decay Naked 3 Palettes, although they are currently out of stock.

Thank you to Hashtag Awesome for bringing some hard to get items to us!

Shop My Stash- Stila One Steps!


Hi Ladies

I love primers, and so when I wanted to try the Stila One Steps, I got them all. I have tried them all and I love them all, but I have decided to let one go... It really is not necessary to have so many primers! (Who am I kidding?)

I found it really hard to decide, since I really liked the results of all of them, but I finally settled on selling the bronze one. I have only used it once, but I will sell it for R200 because for some reason the helix design is a bit smooshed on top. 

So check out my blog sale HERE

Shoesday with Lalla X Legit


Happy Shoesday Ladies!

The stunning Lalla has collaborated with Legit on a collection for summer. I always love Legit's collabs, it adds a fun twist to their items.

These shoes are part of the collection, I bought two from the collection, and I will be sharing the other one soon. I think it was R250, and it is currently in store. 

It is quite high, but I love it! Ankle straps are my thing recently, and I love that this one stems from the sole and criss-crosses up. There is nothing more chic than a white and gold combo.
