Maybe you’ll even learn a lesson along the way. I’ve been lucky enough to have travelled quite a few places in my lifetime but have never been to Europe.

OFRA Week – OFRA Wishlist + Black Friday Specials

With Black Friday fast approaching, I thought I’d put together a wishlist of the OFRA items I’m still lusting after. I won’t be including any permanent liquid lipsticks because if you read my post here, you can just include the shades I don’t have because I want them all. I do have a couple of face products already in my collection which I’ll share with you in tomorrow’s line-up. Vintage Vineyard Collection – R320 ($20*) Named after famous wine capitals around the world, these gorgeous shades consist of rosé, cabernet and plum hues perfect for the upcoming fall and winter…
