The Stocking Stuffer Gift Guide

The Stocking Stuffer Gift Guide

Stocking stuffers can be so much fun and with all the festive markets happening right now, you could probably find really cute, unique things that will make great stocking stuffers. If not, hopefully my suggestions today will inspire some ideas, and best of all you can shop them online. I like to find stocking stuffers that are fun and Christmassy, so think yummy treats, delicious smells and cuteseys that make it all the more festive. Ceramic Gingerbread Diffusers Okay, so stocking stuffers should not be expensive, and I know I’ve started on the pricey side (with the most expensive stocking stuffer), but hear me out. You don’t have to gift the whole pack of three ceramic gingerbread diffusers in one stocking. If you’re looking for cute ideas that are christmassy and fun to stuff your stockings these Gingerbread Scented Ceramic Diffusers from Zara Home (R479 – R160 each if you divide them into three stockings) will release that wonderful smell of freshly baked ginger bread cookies. While it’s a very Christmasy smell, the scent is also warm and cozy and your gift receiver could also hang the diffuser in a wardrobe after the season and indulge in that yummy smell…

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!

Six Lusty and Luxe Gifts for Her

Six Lusty and Luxe Gifts for Her

Because you just can’t put off those festive shopping days for much longer, I’ve put together a list of six luxurious and lustworthy gifts she will love! I’m pretty certain that these would make great gifts for any woman, even the one who seems to have it all! By the way. If you need more gift idea inspo, be sure to check out my Christmas Shopping Guides of the past. There are still some great ideas  Okay, let’s get into it… GOSH Strobe & Glow Highlight Kit I’ve been using my GOSH Strobe & Glow Highlight Kit 001  for a while now and even though this product isn’t crazy expensive (R255) it definitely makes it onto my list of lusty items! The product formula is flawless! Inside you get a quad of four highlighting shades that you can either wear on their own (my absolute fave is the golden shade in the top right hand corner), or you can combine them to create your own level of glow. What I love about this highlight formula is that the “glow” is super fine, so when you apply it onto your face you don’t get a powdery finish at all. The glow…

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…

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?

Home For the Holidays

Home For the Holidays

Do you decorate your home for the holidays? I’m pretty basic, in that I usually just put up a tree, maybe a wreath on the front door and that’s about it. I know some people go all out with decor, but I’m more on the simplistic side. This season however, I’ve seen a ton of cute festive home-wear that’s inspired me to maybe take it up a notch. I’m not talking about your classic, overly shiny Christmas decor, but rather something that’s festive, without being too OTT. Something like…

Christmas Just Ain’t Christmas without Woolies

The countdown to the festive season has begun! YIKES! If you haven’t started your festive shopping, then you better get cracking! Nobody wants to spend their year end leave trawling around shopping centres hunting down their holiday find. I know that’s the last place I want to be! I’d rather be sipping on cocktails by the pool, catching a tan. After all, isn’t that what Christmas in South Africa is all about?

A Shoulder to Try On

A Shoulder to Try On

How cute is the off shoulder trend for summer? My favourite way to wear this trend is opting for a flowy, oversized off the shoulder top worn with cute denim cut offs or skinny jeans. It’s such a great, easy breezy look for warmer weather. Wear it two ways… Check out some of my fave in store picks, right now on how to nail this trend, whether you want to expose bare shoulders, or just show some skin…

Midnight Blooms

Midnight Blooms

It may be winter – but I have Spring In My Step! I’ll admit, I’m not usually one to wear running shoes or sneakers outside of the gym – but these New Balance Midnight Blooms are so beautiful, so comfy and so darn cute, they are the perfect casual kicks that don’t look overly sporty! I actually love them! The Fresh Foam Zante soles makes them feel like I’m walking on air and let’s be honest – who could complain about looking down and seeing a gorgeous tropical print at their feet?
