Elegance Untamed

Elegance Untamed

I’m so excited to finally be able share these Behind the Scenes images and tell you more about an exciting project with Wild Africa Cream. Together with the beautiful Carlinn (Superficial GirlsG) and Thithi (TEETEEISWITHME), we were chosen as ambassadors to welcome the new look Wild Africa Cream in style… by adding elegance to every girl’s must have wardrobe item, the LBD, AKA Little Black Dress. Wild Africa Cream is a smooth and delicious cream liqueur, made in South Africa. You’ll probably remember it by the bold leopard “fur coat” packaging it used to have. Well, it now offers the same amazing taste, but this time around, it’s got a more elegant and refined new look. To celebrate the re-birth of their packaging, the three of us had a fun shoot for Marie Claire Magazine that you can see in the November 2014 issue, styling our favourite Little Black Dresses. Stick around as I’ll be sharing my #EleganceUntamed fashion and beauty posts throughout the month of November. In the meantime, here are some pics from the day… By the way, you guys can also enjoy a bit of #EleganceUntamed at the Wild Africa Cream Exclusive Launch Parties happening in Cape Town on 19th November 2014, or Jozi on the 4th December 2014. Make it a night out and bring your untamed elegance by wearing your favourite LBD with a touch…

Accessorize Autumn/ Winter 2014 – My Favourite Picks

Accessorize Autumn/ Winter 2014 – My Favourite Picks

So, Accessorize sent over their latest catalogue for our upcoming season, and I couldn’t help but swoon… Take a look at some of the pieces that caught my eye! Snuggle up in style with this chunky knit snood that will match just about any outfit and look great with a pair of jeans and brown boots. Kinda obsessed with this Delhi Urban Embellished Necklace I’m not that into “bling”, but this Turkish Treasure Zip Top Clutch is so gorge and will take a little black dress from zero to hero in a flash. I believe this item is sold out, so if you happen to find one lurking in store, snap it up! Get ready to rock your beanie again this winter! Love this navy Plain Boyfriend Beanie. This bag!!! Need I say more?!?! I’ve had my eye on the Mari Bag (R899) for a while and when I saw it had leopard print inside, I was sold! Love this Bobble Stretch Bracelet, that would make a great addition to my arm candy collection. These Shirley Shell stud earrings are the absolute cutest! A little bit of dainty love for this Brushed Heart Bracelet This Cotton Plaited Torq Necklace would look great with a denim shirt! Have you ever seen me say no to leopard…

Hello stylish peeps! Can you believe it’s Monday already? I thought I’d start my posts this week by looking back and letting you guys in on some of the exciting things you’ve probably already seen if you follow me on Instagram. You can follow me on Instagram – stylescoopdotcoza where I post snaps of every day stuff like my shoe obsessions, makeup and events, and on occasion, the kids (my two Rotties and two mongrels) who drive me nuts, but whom I love to death! Enjoy!  An exciting package from the cool peeps over at Levi’s…  Stila fans, if you haven’t already heard the news, Stila cosmetics are finally available in South Africa, yay! I got to sample some goodies – my first time using Stila – and I absolutely love, love, love! Check out my review on some Stila products here.

Here comes the sun! Get sun smart with these face and body sunscreens

Here comes the sun! Get sun smart with these face and body sunscreens

Summer is here! Well, almost. Soon we’ll be ditching the boots and long sleeves for good, (at least I hope we will) and we’ll need to stock up on some sun smart products, to ensure we stay safe and protected all summer long! Check out our top picks for a sun smart summer for face and body… For the face Remember whether you’re spending time in the sun, catching a tan or plan to spend most of the day mostly under your umbrella, don’t leave the house without protection. Your face is exposed to sun rays pretty much all the time, regardless of whether the sun is shining or it’s overcast. For days on the beach, by the pool or when going for walks, a wide brim hat is a must! We love this floppy hat from Woolworths (R99.99). Your eyes need protection too! Don’t compromise style by investing in a pair of these trendy, blooming beautiful over sized sunnies from Dolce & Gabanna’s ‘Garden Party’ themed collection. Get them at Sunglass Hut (R2290). Protect the skin with an element barrier. Nimue Barrier is a dual skin barrier that helps to protect and strengthen the skin’s natural lipid barrier resistance…
