Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue | Love in Capri & Beauty of Capri

Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue | Love in Capri & Beauty of Capri

I’m obsessed with Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue. It’s a beautiful scent that will always be one of my most adored fragrances! That’s why I’m always over the moon that every year, Dolce & Gabbana explore the beauty of the Italian coastline, to bring out a new limited edition Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue scent.

New Summer Scents: Sexy & Seductive (Part 2)

New Summer Scents: Sexy & Seductive (Part 2)

If you’re still looking for that purrr-fect summer scent, I’ve got you covered! Last week, I showed you gals some beautiful new floral, fruity and feminine fragrances, and today, I’ll share the more seductive summer scents… Six beautiful scents by three Italians, two Dutchmen, one German and one American… Which one is your fave? Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue Sunset in Salina The original Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue has been one of my all time favourite fragrances for years (and no, it’s not just because of David Gandy…) Their new, limited edition update for ladies, Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue Sunset in Salina (R1310 for 100ml EDT) is absolutely gorgeous! It’s described as a “floral, fresh fragrance”, but I would certainly describe it as one of the sexiest summer scents to date! It passionate, warm and energetic – a perfect reflection of the pure joy and soul of the Mediterranean. Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue Sunset in Salina opens with the aroma of fresh Vine Leaves, fused with the brightness of Violet Leaves. The heart notes unleash the sweetness and seductive charm of Yellow Freesia, accompanied by Orange Flower and Jasmine. The dry down of the fragrance is a warm embrace of Ambery notes, Cedarwood and White Musky notes. I think I’ve…

I Woke Up Like This (outfit of the day)

I Woke Up Like This (outfit of the day)

Good morning guys! I hope you all had a fab weekend! This weekend I shot another little OOTD, with this totally cute graphic sweat shirt. I love graphic tees, so when I spotted this one at SheIn, I had to have it! For a sweatshirt, it was quite fitted, so I layered it over a white shirt to add more length to my torso - since I don’t like it when tops end just on my hip. Not a good look for an already “hippy” girl ya know what I mean! I think the white shirt with the collar peeking out also made the look a little more pulled together. Still casual, but not overly so! To brighten up my look and make it more weekend cool, I wore my new Dune London Ediamond yellow handbag. It’s not technically a cross-body bag, but it works perfectly as one for me! Then, I just added a fluffy little charm to my bag to add some fun and threw on a pair of ripped up boyfriend jeans, nude pointed flats and some blue accessories. Outfit Details I Woke Up Like This Sweater – Shein on sale! White shirt – Old Khaki (the same one I mentioned in this post) Handbag – Dune London Jeans…

Sun Shadey Days – New Sunglass Styles from Luxottica

Sun Shadey Days – New Sunglass Styles from Luxottica

Today I’m super excited, because I get to show you gals some of the hot new sunglass styles on offer from Luxottica’s brands! I love them all so much… and as I always say, a girl can never have too many shoes, perfumes or sunglasses! Brace yourselves though, for a bazillion-and-one sunglass selfies… Dolce & Gabbana First up, Dolce and Gabbana. The new range from the Italian powerhouse is absolutely jaw dropingly beautiful. Sophisticated, elegant and ladylike, but all while maintaining a serious glam factor… One of the biggest statements I’ve noticed Dolce & Gabbana making, are square frames. Whether simple square frames, or really extravagant ones that have beautiful hand made roses embellishing the entire frame! These  kinda remind me of a heavily frosted cake! I just want to eat them up! It’s all about the detail, with gorgeous temples, encrusted with cute and a little quirky bling-bling! Kinda obsessed with these (real) lace shades! At first, I thought the colour wouldn’t match my dark hair, but surprise, surprise… they are winners! Absolutely loving these floral options… Go all out with floral prints throughout your frames, or opt for more subtle versions (like the back pair) that have simple black frames in front, with a surprise floral detail hidden inside.…

Happy Friday Gals! I’ve had a busy two days, judging Miss Veet SA, and man oh man, I am so looking forward to the weekend! It was a fun, yet grueling judging process, with such lovely girls. I enjoyed chatting with all ten finalists, but in the end the bubbly and beautiful Odirile Sepeng took home the crown. The crowning was held yesterday at the Four Seasons Westcliff Hotel and I took advantage of the backdrop (and the photographic skills of fellow fashion blogger, Irina from I’ll take it all) to help me shoot a little OOTD.

Elegance Untamed Braided Hair Look

Elegance Untamed Braided Hair Look

I’m so excited for the Wild Africa Cream launch party happening in Jozi this week. And, if you entered my giveaway, today I’ll announce who will be joining me with their BFF for an evening of Elegance Untamed! Read to the end of this post to see if it’s you! This week I wanted to play around with something different. I wanted to show you how to incorporate a touch of leopard into a chic evening look, by giving your hair a bit of a wild edge… Since I really suck at doing my own hair, I had the help of my talented hairdresser, Louise from Eclat Creatif (she’s amazing) whip up this edgy, boho braided creation with a touch of leopard print. We used my ClipinHair Extensions (read my review here) to add more fullness to my braid. Isn’t it beautiful?! I finished my look off with a simple LBD and my new Dolce & Gabbana sunglasses. They are so cute! They have an almost leopard print effect to them and inside, they have flash of fun with red and white polka dots. For my makeup, I used these beautiful goodies from Inglot. On my eyes, I used this palette that was specially created for Wild…

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…

Give me Sunglasses! New Season Styles

Give me Sunglasses! New Season Styles

Nothing can quite compare to being in a room, filled with sunglasses! I mean, it’s a dangerous place for a sunglass addict like me to roam free, but at the same time, it feels so right! I got a chance to take a peek at the new sunglass styles coming our way from all the fabulous Luxottica brands at their recent Buyers’ Days… So let’s start with some beauts from Dolce & Gabbana… Dolce & Gabbana know how to do wow! I mean WOW! Those first shades… gorgeous and very typically Dolce & Gabanna! I love the second and third pic too! Leopard Print is a true Dolce & Gabbana signature, while the polka dotty shades, have me singing, itsy bitsy tiny weeny polka dot bikini… (just change it from yellow to red okay!) And then there was Prada… Prada’s are my fave sunglasses. Chic, stylish and they always have the most amazing temple (the little arm thingie, – read my Sunglass anatomy post so that you know how to correctly refer to each piece). They’ve nailed the amazing temple once again and I love how they’ve mixed up the colours as well. Prada Baroque is back with a blinged out look! I absolutely love this style! But, sadly…

Discover Vulcano & Some Serious Man Candy!

Discover Vulcano & Some Serious Man Candy!

Dolce and Gabbana recently launched their new, limited edition men’s fragrance; Light Blue Discover Vulcano.  While the fragrance is sexy and sultry, the male model for this campaign definitely matches that expectation! Ladies, feast your eyes on the gorgeous Italian Stallion David Gandy! Well, he’s actually British but just go with me on this one, I’m trying to “set the scene”. Take your imagination to a gorgeous Sicilian theme. Picture beautiful blue seas, gorgeous scenery, and at super sexy, tall, dark and handsome man. Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue Discover Vulcano captures the essence of the Mediterranean in all it’s sensuality! Inspired by the coastline of the Aeolian island Vulcano (just off the coast of Sicily), this fragrance, has prominent notes of Vetiver, Lemon and Ginger and yes, it’s one of “those” men’s fragrances… The kind that, once you smell it, shuts down all your senses, except for smell, so that your entire mind, body and soul can take in the scent. It’s very sexy with prominent top nots of Italian Lemon and ginger. If you’ve ever been anywhere in the Mediterranean, you’ll know that the lemons grown there are in a class of their own – The smell is far more amplified and you can even smell the…
