August Rubybox and a Haul!


Hi Ladies

My August  Rubybox was worth about R225.

Botanical Collection Tropical Hand & Nail Cream- R25 (This smells heavenly and is super moisturising!)
Dove Deo- R25... Meh
Rubybox Brush Cleaner- R69.95 This is awesome, a quick spray of this cleans and disinfects your brushes in a flash... This doesn't mean you don't have to properly wash your brushes ladies, this is just an interim measure.
Rubybox Eyeshadow Brush- R99.95 I was hoping for the foundation brush, but this brush is pretty cool too, and the bristles are super soft!


I went on a little haul at Clicks the other day

I finally got my hands on these salon pump nail polish removers from Sorbet. 
A Sorbet hydrating face mask, because my skin is still all over the place.
And I am probably the last person to try the Sorbet BB Cream. When I tested it out when it first came out, it looked a bit ashy on me... But I succumbed and decided to give it a proper try, from my dressing table, not those horrendous mirrors in store.
Max Factor Skin Illuminizer foundation, this intrigued me, I love glowy skin!
And lastly the Lee Stafford Frizz Off spray, which I am excited to use this summer for smooth healthy looking hair!

It is nearly weekend ladies!

Shop My Stash!


NYX Powder Blush in "Sand". I love this colour, for my eyes, as a blush it just doesn't work for me. It is a buttery highly pigmented powder, and is now one of my favourite eyeshadows.

Top Shop Cream to Powder Blush in "Head Over Heels". This blush gives a radiant look, and comes in a cute polka dot compact, with a high quality mirror! The colour is really pretty, but not that great on me. I have used it a couple of times, and will sell it for R60.

Wet 'n' Wild - Mega Glo Illuminating Powder - "Strike-A-Pose-Rose" I love shimmer bricks, or rounds in this case, they are so versatile, this has four different colours and can be used as eyeshadow or blush. The colour doesn't work for me, so I will be selling this for R40, I have only used it once.

These items will be added to my blogsale page HERE soon, or you can email me on prettifulblog@outlook.com.

Happy Minty Shoesday Ladies!


Hi Ladies...

Today's shoe is from Zoom, and I love them! The only problem is I can't walk in them for longer than 30 minutes. It is not the heel, or any other problem, except that damn metal toe cap! It squinches my toes so badly!

I love the colour, the style, the pointy toe, the material which is suede like, the open arch, the look of the toe-cap (just hate the feel).

Have a good day, and be sure to join me for Shop My Stash tomorrow! Two of the items are definitely going to my blog sale!

Mani Monday with Essence!


Happy Monday Ladies!

I am having a bit of a moody one, oh well...

For today's mani I used Essence in Flash Powder. It is a textured polish, a sandy glitter type. Unfortunately I needed 3-4 coats of this, but thankfully it dried really quickly!

I love it, it looks like jewels on my nails, and lasted a good 5 days. Definitely a hit for me!

Have a good week ladies!
