Essence Trend Edition – Be Loud!

Walking in Dischem Cleawater yesterday, I managed to pick up a few items from the previous Essence Trend edition ‘Be Loud!’. This edition was launched internationally last year September and it only came to South Africa in June of this year.

For non-members, you can sign up for a membership card in store and rack up points every time you purchase items from them. I arrived a bit early to scout the selection and the lady offered to keep my items until 4 o’clock. I happily, and peacefully, got to browse at my own leisure without too much of the madness. So…
