Winter Hair Routine For Fine Hair

June 21, 2017

This winter seems to be so much dryer than the last. I don’t know if it is, but my hair seems beyond controllable this time around. In an attempt to find a winter hair routine, I dug into my stash (going way back to products that I used years ago, to some newbies) and finally came up with a winter hair care routine that works for me!

Celebrating Cucumbers Today

June 14, 2017

Today is a rather unusual day to celebrate, but it’s a good one! It’s Hendrick’s World Cucumber Day.

And in honour of this day, I’m sharing a few unusual cucumber growing tips from Hendrick’s Gin, who conducted a very different kind of experiment, which revealed cucumbers to be highly sensitive to sound, scent and touch!

So, if you want to grow the most glorious cucumbers for your G&T’s, then you may want to crank up your playlist, make better choices on what other plants you plant them with and start swaddling those glorious greens.

Sound kinda crazy – you ain’t seen nothing yet…

Opulent Florals for Winter – Shop the Look

June 13, 2017

Remember that scene in The Devil Wears Prada, where boss lady Miranda pipes up and says, “Florals? For spring? Ground breaking!” I wonder if she thought about Florals for winter?

The 70’s vibe is a huge hit for winter 2017, as is wearing pattern overload, texture and florals! So to give you some inspo into wearing the trend, I rounded up a few of my favourite, very 70’s, very textured and very floral winter must haves… Continue Reading

Layered Necklaces

June 9, 2017

A lot of you girls have been asking me about the necklaces that I’m wearing in my profile pic (the same one I wore on this post and on instagram yesterday). Aren’t they just beautiful?

Both are from Georgini, an Australian jewellery brand (that’s available from various retailers in South Africa – as well as via their local online store) and they have some truly beautiful pieces; some bold, some dainty, some intricate and some brightly coloured as well.

Makeup Done, The Easy Way + GOSH Makeup Goodies Up For Grabs [closed]

June 7, 2017

The days are getting shorter, nights are getting longer, and I don’t know about you, but I’ve become increasingly lazy when it comes to doing my makeup. Still, I want an easy look – something that I can literally throw on.

Danish makeup brand GOSH, (who I’ve featured on StyleScoop before) sent over a couple of their goodies for me to try. I’ve always liked the high quality of their products and how easy they are to use, so I knew these would be perfect for my lazy girls guide to makeup.

I’ve also got a little spoil for one of my lucky readers, giving you chance to play with some Danish GOSH goodness, so make sure you keep on reading …

24 Hours in Prague; What To Do, See, Eat and My Travel Tips

June 6, 2017

I love reading 24 hour city guides. I like to see what others would get up to if they had only 24 hours, because I think it highlights their best parts of a city.

Although my recent visit to Prague was for 3 days, bear in mind that this was a business trip, so a lot of the time our schedule was packed with interviews, launches and store visits. But, I did manage to experience a full day of exploring before jetting back to SA – as well a few sights sneaked in between the agenda.

If you’re planning a trip to the kingdom of Bohemia, then here’s a few of my travel tips… Continue Reading
