The Beauty Desk: Essie, Gosh, Beauty Fix...


Ooh, time to share some of my current fave beauty products. I particularly love the gorgeous shade of nailpolish from Essie althought I'm equilly impressed with the powder brush from Gosh. Ok, ok I love all of these and here's why.

1. Essie Nailpolish Peach Daiquiri 

This is such a beautiful shade like mentioned before, just perfect for summer! Truth be told, I was also drawn in by the cheerful name when I got this Essie shade from my local Clicks. I wasn't particularly impressed with the staying power, but it's definitely my go-to polish when I want to feel glamorous + pretty.

2. Beauty Fix Makeup Finish

What a lovely hydrating + nourishing mist this is. Infused with rosewater, cucumber and aloe vera it sounds good enough to eat. So imagine spritzing something that's more like a healthy green juice on your skin after the application of your makeup? Amazing! It really blends + revitalises the skin - leaving you with a beautiful, radiant glow. More details on the product here. 

3. Gosh Powder Brush

This brush is made of the softest nylon hair and it's really an all over brush - ideal for applying loose or pressed powder, blusher, bronzer or shimmer. Gosh specifically used nylon bristles for this brush as they are more hygienic, hold their shape and will not feather. I've been using it for more than 4 months and I'm still in love with it!

4. Woolworths Pomegranate & Berries Hand & Nail Cream

I love fresh, fruity and zesty smells and this is exactly that. I love the size of it too, which makes it easy to pop in your hand or makeup bag. It's very moisturising and my hands + nails have been getting lots of compliments, but did I mention the packaging? Well it's just sooo beautiful and I would definitely repurchase this fancy little tube from Woolies!

DSTV and internet/wifi hotspot feature in all rooms for clients to check their mail, while enjoying a stress free stay.

Using its own well for water as well as solar panels for electricity, it really is its own self sufficient, eco-friendly oasis in the desert.

Here you will leave revived and refreshed with fond memories and a deep longing to come back. 

I celebrated my wedding ceremony + honeymoon over at this lovely tranquil cottage and today I'm sharing a few pictures of our special day with you. It was truly a beautiful experience, in fact I can't wait to go back for our first wedding anniversary.

Awesome Apps: Colorfy



I’m not the only one who’s totally thrilled about the new colouring for adults craze, right? It’s such a great stress reliever, especially after a long day at work (paired with a glass of wine) and I also love the fact that there’s such a huge variety of colouring books out there - whether it's spiritual, fantasy or mandalas that you're into.

To be honest, I was not surprised when I saw the awesome app Colorfy, being featured in ELLE Magazine’s June edition of #ELLERadar - well because I’ve already been using it for a very long time. It’s soooo much fun + this app gives you plenty of splendid colours and patterns to play with. And the best part is that it’s totally free.

Time really flies by and problems + anxiety fade away while you chill out and have fun:

- Colouring beautiful florals, animals, mandalas, and more.
- You choose your favorite color combinations.
- Easy! Simply tap to paint and pinch to zoom
- Share your creations with all your friends 
 
Check out a few of my recent colouring creations…





Do you also love colouring for adults and do you own a stack of books? Please let me know in the comments section.

Tech Review: On The Go Pouch


When I saw this gorgeous marble pouch over at Cotton On I couldn't believe my dark brown eyes. It's just that it's soooo difficult to find marbled goodies where I live. They call it an On The Go Pouch and it's meant for gadgets like your iPod + phone connected to earphones. 

See the gap in the picture with the pink earphones? There... However, when I put in the once earpiece there's no space to push through the other one, not that it matters to me. I'm using this little bag for my makeup! I found this marbled beauty on discount for just R50.00 in store.
