Hiya bellas, Three days in and the year is already looking better. Just a few more days before I start training and it might be a bit quiet on the blog front since I’m going to try to focus on studying more.

Benefit Cosmetics Haul + First Impressions

If you’ve read my previous Wishlist Wednesday post, you would know that I was super excited for Benefit Cosmetics to be finally brought back to South Africa. On top of that, I found a select few of my favourite beauty bloggers were allowed to host a VIP experience with 5 guests at the Sandton City launch on social media. I entered two of the competitions, one being the Friday night before the official launch on the 11th July and the other being the Sunday after. When I got the message that I was chosen for the Friday night launch, I…
