Bikini Season is here

Bikini Season is here

Don’t let today’s headline scare you because  I’ve got the inside scoop on some of the hottest Ladies Swimsuit Styles this summer! Full disclosure, I don’t particularly “love” getting into a bikini, but I’ve found that when you find a style that suits you, no matter your physique (we don’t all look like Kayla Itsines), you’ll feel fabulous! Here are few Ladies Swimwear items I’ve got my eye on, from one of my favourite online retailers, Superbalist… Black and White When swimsuit shopping, let’s get one thing out of the way first… Support is everything! When your girls look happy, well you feel happy – am I right? One of the biggest things that I look for in a swimsuit is that it offers the right support. Now, my second key to swimsuit shopping is choosing a monotone option. For me I just feel black and white is such a classic to go for and looks really good no matter what. I usually buy two swimsuits per season, the first one is always something classic (and yes, black and white) and the second, something fun and playful like the other options I’ll show you today. Love this Padded underwire bikini top…

The Cutest One Piece Swimsuits You’ve Never Seen

The Cutest One Piece Swimsuits You’ve Never Seen

After my Summer Body Ready post, I’m sure you’ve been thinking non-stop about Swimwear for Summer 2018. Last year, my swimsuit finds paid off, and I’ll probably do another post of what you can expect in store too. However, for today, I wanted to show you some beautiful one piece swimsuits for Summer 2018 from brands and retailers you’ve likely not seen. All of these are available in South Africa, and I’m sure there are a ton more. If you know of any cool swimwear brands that I’ve missed, comment below and let me know so I can check them out. Miraclesuit Swimsuits for Summer 2018 Miracle Suit is a range of swimwear that is said to deliver three times the control of ordinary swimwear fabrics, without relying on inner linings and constrictive control panels to shape and trim. This fabric is exclusive to Miraclesuit and apparently it can make you look slimmer in seconds. I’m sold! Suit Yourself Ansonia Blue, Purr-fection Mystify Anything that can make us look more streamlined in our swimwear is a winner in my opinion, and if it’s cute to boot, then it’s a win-win!

5 Stud Earrings to Try Now & GIVEAWAY

5 Stud Earrings to Try Now & GIVEAWAY

Let’s talk about my favourite jewellery accessory shall we? STUDS! I love studs so much! They are pretty easy to wear and I love creating a story with double studs on my ears. One of my favourite jewellery brands for really high quality pieces is Georgini. You may remember I did a post on them last year with their gorgeous layered necklaces and some cute earrings, and today I’m showing you pieces from their latest collection, my favourite being all the gorgeous studs! PLUS I’ve got a blog giveaway for my lovely readers where you could win, every single pair of Georgini earrings I’m showing you today, all valued at R5000! How’s that for busting a blue Monday!? Studs with different shapes are probably my favourite kinds of earrings to play around with. I’ve got two piercings on my earlobes and a Tragus piercing on my left ear, so I like to play with different shapes that almost “go together” on the three piercings. Above I’m wearing the Georgini ARA Earrings in silver on my first piercing. In my second piercing I’ve gone with a contrasting metal; using the Georgini PYXIS Rose Gold Earrings. Then in my Tragus, I went with the…

Road Runner

Road Runner

You may remember back in February, I showed you the latest innovation trainer from New Balance, the Fresh Foam LAZR, and now there’s a whole new range of Fresh Foam to get you excited! Say hello to the New Balance Fresh Foam LAZR SPORT, the trainer that will help you to Get Focused, Get More! I have a confession to make…. I gave up my gym membership a while ago, because I’m so over spending my time indoors working out. BORING! These days I’d much rather be out on the road – even if it’s just a walk around my hood. Getting out is so much better especially considering I, like you most likely, spend most of my time cooped indoors and usually stuck behind my computer screen. It’s nice to get out and see the world and it’s amazing how doing this is better when you have the right shoes! Much like the Fresh Foam LAZR, the SPORT trainers are packed with innovative features to help you get more from your workout.  Once again they feature a lightweight sole, an innovative laser-cut mid sole for enhanced comfort and a bootie construction with a sock-like collar. They are very similar to the the Fresh…

Where to Buy the Best Leggings

Where to Buy the Best Leggings

Legging season is upon us! Hands up if you live in your leggings! Don’t be afraid to raise your hand – I know, leggings have got such a bad rap at times, because well, people wear them and they look frumpy. But I think leggings are the best! I do really live in mine, and I think if you wear leggings as part of a look – in other words, you’ve put an actual look together – they can look fantastic!

Ready, Set, Swim!

Ready, Set, Swim!

You guys! Summer is here, despite this gloomy weather! And with summer comes swimwear – eeek! I asked you gals on Twitter and my Instagram Stories to vote on which you preferred; the one-piece or a two-piece swimsuit and you girls are definitely feeling the one piece vibe. It’s a good thing though, because the one piece is making a huge comeback this year, which means our local store offering is filled with choice! Being in the market for a new swimsuit myself, I headed out to the shops to find cute swimwear, so if you’re looking for a new cozzie, then keep on reading…

Wear Your Story With Nomination

Wear Your Story With Nomination

I love travelling. I love wandering and exploring the unknown. Discovering new places, emerging in new cultures. I love it all! There’s a quote by an unknown author that says, “Traveling is the only thing you buy that makes you richer” and it’s true! I love nothing more than experiencing all this for myself, but I also love hearing travel tales and stories from other travellers. And what better way to ignite a travel conversation than by wearing your travel stories on your wrist?

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?

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…

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.
