Belle Box June Subscription Box

Now before you guys jump the gun and think this has something to do with me, unfortunately it doesn’t. Belle Box is a new-ish subscription box in South Africa founded by Emy Clarke in Cape Town. She says: “I have always loved watching and reading Beauty Bloggers ‘Monthly Favourite’ videos and blog posts. I love hearing real reviews on products and some of my go to products today have been recommended by these bloggers. One day, whilst watching one of these videos I had a lightbulb moment: How amazing would it be to receive a box filled with these products…

July Favourites

OMG can you believe it’s August already. I don’t know where this year is flying to but I just can’t keep up. I already feel like there isn’t enough hours in a day to get stuff done and now not enough days in a year. It feels like everyday is such a rush and we don’t properly get to enjoy what’s happening around us. I feel in some way this blog grounds me.

Honestly, with most of the LUSH products I buy, I split them into quarters so they last longer and it’s easier to store. I only get to use a quarter…

Apart from me not being able to feel my hands most mornings due to the chill, I don’t want my lips to feel dry and leathery like dragon scales.

Winter brings it’s fair share of skin ailments such as dry skin, chapped lips, scaly skin and many forms of irritation and itchiness. If you suffer from dry and dehydrated facial skin, you can…

The Good Stuff + Giveaway

Wow what an amazing weekend it’s been. For those of you who don’t know, we celebrated Eid, the end of our fasting month (Ramadaan) with a family feast on Saturday. It is a day to exchange gifts, wear smart clothes (new clothes if you can afford it) and spend time with family and the community. Whilst it was exhausting to say the least, we had loads of fun, chatted with relatives we haven’t seen in a while and feasted after fasting for 30 consecutive days. Some might think we hadn’t seen food before lol 🙂 I am absolutely elated right…
