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. It gives me a chance to sit down, think and write about what I love. So without any further ado, here’s the products I’ve been loving for…

Wishlist Wednesday – Which Enzyme Exfoliator...

Hiya bellas, We’re only half way through the week and I already feel like crawling into bed and hibernating for a good few days. We started fasting yesterday (it’s officially Ramadaan for the Muslim community), and it’s not only the early morning wakings I’m struggling with but also the hunger pangs creeping in at around 9am. We are only allowed to ‘break’ our fast with food/drink at 5:30pm so the days are feeling long and taxing. I’ve decided to not wear a lot of makeup for the next 30 days because I’d rather get some extra shut eye in the…

(Belated) LUSH Haul

In the last month and a half I’ve made 2 trips to LUSH Rosebank and as usual, I go crazy with all the new goodies and amazingness on the shelves. It’s an experience like no other. I’m not sensitive to certain smells so it’s a scent explosion when I walk through the LUSH store. I thought I’d share my haul and some faves because some of the products have been repurchases. 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…

Get your pucker on – Dry Chapped Lips

Winter is coming! Yes I’m a die-hard Game of Thrones gal and I just couldn’t resist. 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. With the combination of cold and damp outside with the heat and dryness inside can cause skin issues for many individuals. 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…

My quest to conquer dry & dehydrated skin

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. If you not sure what I’m talking about and instead of me rambling my entire life story off again, you can check out this post here to fill you in. So, one of the main things I am focusing on this year is getting my skin back to beautiful. I’m not trying to be conceited by saying that…
