COSMO BeautyClass Masterclass 2014

So this week I will be telling you about the Cosmo BeautyClass Masterclass that I attended with my friends last month. It was held at the Protea Fire and Ice Hotel in Melrose Arch and the tickets were R250pp. We arrived at 9am and were greeted by a light breakfast of canapés and drinks whilst intermingling with the other attendees. We were then ushered to our workstations which had a goodie bag for each person to take home, a double sided mirror and a pile of makeup on the table to share between three people for use in the masterclass.…

The Body Shop Makeup Madness Haul (Part 2)

I am so sorry for my Body Shop follow up post being so delayed. It has been such a hectic week with me trying to run a business and having to cope with an unfortunate death in the family but I finally got around to it.

Stepping through the archway towards the mirrored tent made me feel like Alice going down the rabbit hole. Everywhere I looked were bizarre characters from Aladdin lookalikes to surfer dudes and Vikings. Patrons roamed between the bar and boutique before the show, grabbing a drink or a feather boa to adorn their attire. Hypnotised, one question sprang to mind, is this real? Or a fantasy? We were ushered…

Give a little and…

So I received my order from TAKEALOT.com yesterday. It was delivered by the courier company in just 3 days and I was only expecting it sometime next week. I was so excited I immediately got to playing around and would like to share my thoughts with you. The items I ordered were on my TAKEALOT.com wish list and luckily for me they were having a spring sale (not that I need an excuse to buy makeup).                                      Yardley Stayfast Supershine Lipgloss in Rocking Red and Glamour Girl – I must admit for a long time these have been…
