essence Next Stop summer LE

Good day Beauties, 

I'm here to inform you today that essence have a new limited edition range of goodies that are available at Dis-Chem pharmacy.  The range are called next stop, summer. I just wonder where are the Summer, since it's most wet and we are supposed to have Summer here and not Winter at all.  I know that Cape Town have a water crises and every drop counts, but hey i'm not one for cold seasons at all! 

So without further of my moaning about the weather that I'm experiencing here in Cape Town let's spring to the latest essence products...

Vacation mode on!  The new essence trend edition “next stop: summer” awakens the urge to travel and offers beauty must-haves for all holiday girls.

WAKE UP, SPRING by essence

Hello Beauties!

How are you all doing today? It's already the second week of September and we are still having the days of Winter in Cape Town.  I think that essence made a smart move to create a cosmetic limited edition called Wake up, spring!, because that's exactly what i feel on the cold days where's the lovely sunshine weather!?

Spring are one of my favourite seasons of the year when I can see with my own eyes how the flowers are about to bloom and the leaves are light green - do i need to say more!?

Hello Beauties,

Time really flies hey and in a way i'm happy that September are here at last. That means only one thing for us days of sunshine and flowers that will start to bloom and the world around us will be beautiful again!

I have to say that i have some good news especially to my readers that are based in Denmark, Finland, Netherlands, Belgium, Italy, Spain and Myanmar, but sad news to my South African readers.  We all love essence and we all know that next month are Halloween right? Well, essence have a gorgeous range of goodies out, but not for the South African folk. I was so excited when i have read the press release and just to find out that the bootiful nights limited edition wont be released here.

Hello Beauties,

I have been searching the Internet for a decent time for a nail polish display that i can mount to my wall. I have a over 100 bottles  nail polishes and i have stored them in my dresser drawers, but they take up so much space and i cant see what i have. Most of the items that I've seen were DIY projects, but I'm useless with those stuff and i also don't have anyone that i could ask to make something like that for me.

Until recently I've seen that Planet Nails have advertised one on their Facebook Page. So i have made contact with them....

 Hello Beauties,

It's been such a long while i have posted, since i was sick with bronchitis. I'm much better now and it's a relief to be out of bed again!

Some while ago Bramley have send me the limited edition of the Herbal Camphor tissue oil to review.  I was reading the information on the bottle and i thought to myself...Mmm...interesting, but i don't have any of these symptoms as described on the label, but little did i know back then that i would need this product very much indeed! This product came in very handy when i became ill and i wasn't surprised by it, since i was in contact with my dad.

Hello Beauties!

I'm sure that the majority of you now the brand called Dove. I associate Dove with luxury! Most of us would remember that Dove are known for their soap bars.  I even remember my first bar of soap and i have used it very sparingly, since it was such a luxury item for me.

Belle Collection ~ Rose gold Shimmer Nail Polish

Hello Beauties,

In the beginning of this month i popped into Jet Store - i always do.  It's one of my little pleasure times to browse around, since i always find a great shade of nail polish or two.  I have started long ago a collection called Belle Collection and i was pleasantly surprised to find a gorgeous polish called a Rose Gold Shimmer. Firstly, because i thought that they don't stock the nail polish anymore! It was ages ago, since I've seen any - so i was so super duper happy to have found this particular shade!! I know Rose Gold are the hype at the moment - i'm not one that follows trend styles so much, but sometimes what are in trend are just so cool.

Hello beauties,   

How was your weekend? Mine…not so great at all, you can say that I was seeing red. I was angry and one of the things that I like to do are to paint my nails. Guess what shade did I paint my nails with? Yip, I have looked at my stash of polishes and went to the first brand of polishes that I have purchased in 2010.

Pilaten | blackhead remover

Hello Beauties,

Today i want to talk about the blackhead remover mask that are all over the Social Media Networks.  I know that the majority of you have watched videos of people using these type of mask and was probably scared from trying these products out, since most of them was in so much pain from peeling it all off.

Well, i was fortunate enough to have received some samples from Rubybox to test out.

SpaRitual Dreamsicle Nail Polish

Hello Beauties,

How are you all doing?  I can tell you that the Winter are so so close, since i can feel the chills in the early morning and late at night. I just wish that we would receive the much desired rain this Winter otherwise i do not know!

We are going to talk about nails! I just had to file my nails down, since one of them have chipped and then another one was about to split. I just hate it when it happens, but then on the other hand i was a bit lazy to apply my nails with cuticle oil and hand lotion. Lesson learnt.

Well, today i have the SpaRitual Nail Polish that i want to show you.  It's called Dreamsicle.

Strike a Pose by SpaRitual

Hello Beauties,

How are you all doing today? Here in Cape Town it's a kind of day that you want to spend indoors with a cup of Hot Chocolate and with some Pannekoek like we eat here in Winters time for those that don't know what "Pannekoek" are it's Crepes.  I know some people will translate it directly and call it pancakes, but that would be something totally different for us. I'm glad that we are having a wet day, since we need the rain so much, our dams have only about 11% of water left so if we don't receive much rain we won't have anything for late June/July.

Today i want to show you another wonder shade from SpaRitual called "Strike a Pose"

Cetaphil: Gentle Cleansing Lotion

Hello Beauties,

How are you all doing on this warm Sunday afternoon? I must admit that i really wouldn't mind for some colder weather to arrive, since i just feel so lazy the last couple of weeks! I really adore the colder seasons of the year!!  Just to think about the hot drinks like Hot Chocolate's with Marsmellows and to cuddle up in bed with a really good book or listening to the radio. Spending the weekend in your favourite winter pj's. The absolutely favourite part are to have a WARM bubble bath with some candles burning, hopefully by that time we will had some serious winter rains by then!  

I have received the Cetaphil Gently Cleaning Lotion from Home Testers to review this product. At first i haven't known about this brand before, but after that i have seen many products from this brand and it's one of those products that many rave about it and i had some extra of these products that i had shared with my friends and i received great feedback from them.

Good Morning Beauties,

How are you all doing on this fine looking day? Today i want to share with you a polish shade that i have purchased via a voucher that i won along time ago, but i haven't painted my nails with this particular shade yet. Yes, it was laying for almost a year in my drawer with being used! Shocking isn't it!? I really loved this shade to be honest and it's the first purple polish shade that i didn't had any trouble of taking photos of it!

Hello Beauties,

How are you doing today. The weather are so lovely outside today in Cape Town i have just walk in the front garden of our house and i wished that i could stay a little longer and sit on the front step and just try to relax and to breath the air and soak some Vit. D in before the colder season are here.

During this time of the year i feel so demotivated - it's a bit tricky to describe how i feel precisely, but i do think that you know the feeling all to well. What do you like to do during those times? For me it's a relaxing bubble bath with candles burning.

Good Morning Beauties,

It's good to be back after a short break, my ISP was off and it took me a whole week for them to get me connected.

Recently while i was walking in Edgars (don't actually shop there) i spotted on a display some nail polishes and i've noticed these polishes that was on sale. I do love a good nail polish to be honest. I have more nail polishes in my room than books!  Those that know me really well will confirm it.  I would easily read a good book till the early morning hours. Every month i purchase two lovely Mills & Boon books from Crazy Store! It's my leisure time activity just before sleeping.

Hello Beauties,

I've have always thought that tissue oil are for pregnant woman only, since that's what i always hear in the media,but recently i have noticed that a few was talking about that it's not just for woman that have stretch marks, but for anyone actually especially for those that have dry skin, scar tissue as well.

Tuesday, 28 March 2017


Good Morning Beauties,

As i have mention om my Instagram account that i'm going to do more regular nail polish postings. Every Monday i'm going to post a Mani.  I felt it's long overdue it was one of the things that i started somewhat to neglect and i'm a bit disappointed at myself for that. I really love to have gorgeous nails that are painted, but i just drifted away to other beauty stuff, but my first love in beauty will always be nail polish! Since Blue are my favourite shade to paint my nails with there would probably be more different shades of blue manicure's, but it's also a trend colour for this year so you get to see what are great shades to work etc.

Hello Beauties, 

Do you take care of your feet? I love to have a great pair of feet, especially when i wear open shoes or when i'm bear feet on the beach, but to be honest i don't spend the time that i should.  The reason? I'm lazy most of the time, just to do everything of a DIY pedicure at home seems just too much. Until i have discovered the Sorbet Moisture Infusing Socks that are sold in Clicks.

Avène Thermale Spring Water

Hallo Beauties!

During this time of the year we had some really hot weather and then with the recent fires that we had around here in South Africa, Cape Town, it just made the the temperature more than what i could handle on some of these days so when i had the opportunity to review  the Avène Thermale Spring Water  that Rubybox have send me i was feeling excited to try it out for my self. 

Wednesday, 15 March 2017


Hello beauties,

During this time of the year most of us a feel exhausted and yet we have so much that had to be done! If that's not all the warm weather that we are having at the moment just makes us more lazy than what we are already feeling.

This would be just the right time to enjoy a relaxing bath with Bramley Cosmetics Lavender foam bath.

Sunday, 12 March 2017


Hello Beauties,

It's Summer time here in South Africa and we really need to take care of our skin, since it's the only one we have for life and it's also the largest organ that we have and it's function is to protect us and to be the "top coats" of our bodies - our skin deserve to be kept as healthy and vital as possible. 

But yet we tend to neglect our skin most of the time, simply because we are lazy or we have the response by saying things like it's so expensive to buy creams or lotions and here is where Bramley Cosmetics come into the picture! 

Some of you might know about Bramley Cosmetics, but the majority of you won't know of them. Bramley Cosmetics are an South African Company that manufacture bath and body range to the woman that are at the lower end of the market, but yet to deliver products that would deliver beyond the expectation on every personal care need and also at an affordable price that would suit every one's budget.

Hello Beauties,

I hope that you all had a beautiful weekend, mine on the other hand was not so fantastic to say the least, i feel a lot better than yesterday morning and with almost a full day sleep i feel better and i hope that i feel even better as the week goes on.

Today i want to talk about my experience of The Body Shop's Vitamin E Sink-In Moisture Mask that i have tried out earlier today.

I have received this product as a gift and i was a bit skeptic of this products, since i have read on some blogs that they didn't find it so good and other were talking highly about it.  Mostly i'm nervous to try out a new product, since I've had a product that i've tried out earlier and my face have totally burn the whole time, but this was totally not the case with The Body Shop's Moisture Mask at all it actually the opposite!


Monday, 27 February 2017


Good Morning Beauties,

How are you all beauties doing today?  Me, i haven't slept yet i was up all night i just couldn't sleep, since i had a lot on my mind and I've watched a lovely movie on YouTube and it made me think..real hard about certain things in life.

I started to blog as an outlet two years ago and it was also something to do, since I don't have a normal job more like a part time job that i do from home. At first i thought blogging isn't so hard, since i had done some blogging for my Computer classes when I was at Varsity, but a lot have change since then.

Wednesday, 8 February 2017


Good Morning Beauties, 

How are you doing?  I sincerely hope that you are all healthy. I have just released this weekend that we tend to take good health for granted!  I had so much pain this weekend in my back that i just felt like giving up on life on it own. During this weekend i remember the words of my dance lecture at Varsity that told us that we should be in tune with our bodies and to listen. So i'm going to implement some relaxing breathing exercises before i go to bed.  It would help me to relax...

Some while ago essence have had the LOVE ~ JOY ~ CARE limited edition and i have decided to purchase the all in one nail care  for my nails, since my nails needed some TLC. 

"this multi-talent with Vitamin e is a ridge filler, base coat, high shine and wear extending top coat and color refresher in one. strengthens and protects the nails against daily damages for beautiful cared nails. "

Friday, 3 February 2017


Hello Beauties,

It's Summer time here in the Mother City and what better way so splash some funky paint on our nails from Sorbet latest release range "Soft Serve" !  This lets's me think of Ice-Cream - Yummy! Who would say no to that!? 

Monday, 16 January 2017


Hallo Beauties,

Today was the last day before everything are back in full swing for everybody!  With the Summer that we are having here in South Africa and with the fires that are burning in the Mountainside it just makes the weather so much warmer and that i hardly want to do anything at all.  It's much colder in the late evenings, but then you feel so meh or is it only me that feel that way?

I had a wonderful day yesterday (Monday) i've spend my day at the beach and it was wonderful to celebrate my birthday by eating fish & chips at Mariners Wharf. Spend the early hour walking on the beach with my Father.  I don't know about you, but i just love to walk on the beach. Oh and do not forget about the most delicious Ice-Cream that i've enjoyed. Those that follow me on Instagram would know how delicious it looked - enough said.

Side note: I started wth this post, but then i got ill and didn't had the energy to finish up this blog post.

In the beginning of the month i was so lucky to have spotted the Juice It nail polish collection at my local Clicks.

Nail Polish Collection

When i have seen the post in the media regarding this release i just know i had to purchase these wonderful Jelly's!  To be honest it also the first time that i have a jelly collection.  So the moment my eyes spotted them on New Years day at Clicks i just know i had to grab these, since i know they would sell like hot cakes!

Friday, 6 January 2017


Hallo Beauties,

I hope that those of you that are still on Holiday would enjoy the last few days, since next week Monday everyone will be back to work and then it's almost time for the school to begin as well!

I have enjoyed my first bubble-bath time for this year!  It felt wonderful just to relax and to play with the bubbles...


Tuesday, 3 January 2017


Hallo Beauties,

Can you believe 2017 are here? It was just the other day December and yet it's January already! I really hope that this year would be so much better than last year!! 

This month I have spotted this lovely shade called Rock my Soul from the I love trends collection by essence.
