New Year, New Desk

New Year, New Desk

Now that Christmas is over, it’s time to start thinking about the New Year. For me, the best way to welcome a new working year is with a fresh, inspired desk space. This weekend the hubs made me the most amazing, beautiful  “blonde” pine trestle desk. It’s gorgeous and big enough for me to work and fill it with pretty things! It needs to be finished off, so in the meantime, I’m looking for beautiful desk accessories to adorn it with. I love the look of natural wood, and since that’s the basis of my desk, I want to go for natural wood pieces, gold and white accents with a touch of black and white for contrast. Until my pretty new desk is ready to reveal, here’s a couple of gorgeous things that I’d love to have on my desk in 2015! Studio Sarah Notebook, Reiko Kaneko Lip Tease Mug, Jonathan Adler Gold Zebra Dish, Kate Spade Acrylic Letter Tray, Kate Spade Acrylic Stapler, Kate Spade “Escape the Ordinary” scented candle, Made By Girl Love Foil Print,  Wooden Hand Mannequin, Wood Block Perpetual Calendar. And of course, some inspiration… The beautiful desk of Danielle Moss via Apartment Therapy. LOVE this space of Kristen Clarke from Living In Color Print. More images here.…

Thunderstruck Leopard

Thunderstruck Leopard

You know when you find THAT pair of perfect jeans and you just want to live in them every day? Well, I found them! I can’t get enough of these blue ripped, Thunderstruck jeans from GAP. Although I really don’t like straight leg jeans (I’m more of a skinny or boot leg kinda gal), this pair of Real Straight jeans ticks all the boxes for me. Beautiful colour, distressed look, great fit and even though the leg is straight, I can cuff them and still get a peek of the gorgeous inseam. For me, this look is almost “boyfriend”, but a little less bulky. I love boyfriend jeans, but they often look a bit sloppy on my short frame. Take a look at how I styled these jeans, with a little bit of leopard, gold accessories and fudge shoes with cute, gold ankle straps… Jeans: GAP 1969 Thunderstruck Real Straight Jeans, Leopard Belt – GAP, Sheer Leopard Top (and Oldie from YDE), Fudge flats – Vince Camuto (Available at Edgars), Bracelet – Accessorize, Bag – Kipling.

Green & Gold Springbok Inspired Looks by @InglotSA

Green & Gold Springbok Inspired Looks by @InglotSA

I asked Inglot‘s Brand Consultant and National Trainer, Luciano dos Santos to send me some tips on how to create perfect Sprinkbok inspired green and gold eye makeup. Luciano says that “green and gold are great colours to use together.” He also warns that you should be very careful not to over do it or else your look could end up looking over dramatic – unless of course, that’s what you’re going for! Luciano sent us three looks that you can try this Rugby season to support our Springboks in style! Green & Gold Makeup Look 1 Brush a frosted neutral(creamy colour ) with a golden reflect over the eyelid and blend softly up onto the brow bone. Line the bottom eye line with a frosted green (either chatreuse or even a moss green) blend into a faded line. Finish of by adding a black liner around the rim of the eye – top and bottom. Apply a few layers of mascara for long and thick lashes. Green & Gold Makeup Look 2 Apply a satin finish or matte green over the eyelid. Any shade of green is suitable for this look. Apply a darker colour green in the crease…

And the Winners of the Kim Kardashian Gold Competition Are…

And the Winners of the Kim Kardashian Gold Competition Are…

We can tell from our Kim Kardashian fragrance competition that Stylescoopers adore Kim’s hair, are obsessed with her shoes and sense of style but some entries really caught our attention. Congratulations to our winners who struck GOLD: 1st prize winner – Abby Buchanan: “Firstly, I love Kim’s style. She is a real woman who dresses for her body and doesn’t try to go against her natural shape. She takes pride in what she has to work with and always looks stylish. That alone, makes her an inspiration. I also love that she isn’t ashamed to tackle Hollywood even though she doesn’t have any of the typical Hollywood talents such as acting, singing or dancing. In fact, she has admitted many times that she is horrible at all three. Instead, she has carved her own path and made her name into one of the greatest brands. But the thing I love most about Kim Kardashian is that she is a girly girl – always in heels, make-up and jewellery and she embraces it. She isn’t afraid to be a romantic and believe in fairytales and true love even though she has been hurt numerous times and been left heartbroken. She stays…

Strike Gold and WIN with Kim Kardashian’s New Fragrance

Strike Gold and WIN with Kim Kardashian’s New Fragrance

Competition Closed. To see the winners click here It seems as though everything Kim Kardashian touches turns to gold, so why should her new fragrance be any different? After the successful launch of her signature perfume in South Africa in 2010, Kim Kardashian now presents her new fragrance, called “Gold”. I was anxious for Gold to be released and it certainly delivers on its promise to “Transcend the Ordinary”. Gold is a luxurious, opulent fragrance ideal for the glamorous, stylish, confident woman who enjoys the finer things in life while being comfortable in her own skin. In Kim’s own words: “Gold is a luxury that stands the test of time, a universal symbol of sophistication and glamour. Like a stunning piece of precious jewellery, Gold lends everyday style a surge of seductive sparkle and timeless beauty.” The fragrant composition of Gold begins with a rich burst of bergamot, grapefruit and pink pepper. The heart offers a floral bouquet of jasmine, tender rose and dewy violet. The addictive (and I do mean addictive!) base blends patchouli, sandalwood, amber and creamy benzoin, all wrapped in a warm veil of musk. The fragrance has just launched at most leading retailers in Eau de Parfum (100…
