Shop High-End brands such as Bobbi Brown, Clinique...

Hiya bellas, Today I thought I’d share with you one of my tips for shopping high-end brands at discounted prices. I know most people don’t know this because when I refer them to the websites, I always get a “Seriously?”, “Oh my word” or “I can’t believe it” response. Some of my favourite high-end brands have what they call ‘Outlet’ pages. Basically, they post products that have been discontinued or aren’t doing that well on the sales front for much cheaper prices. It also includes any limited edition items left over from the launches. You can save hundreds of Rands…

New Year, New Goals

Happy 2018 bellas, I’m so happy to be back to blogging and hoping that this year will be better than the last one. 2017 for me was probably the crappiest year of my life. Without divulging too much information (sorry some things still need to be kept private), my family life, my career and blogging took some hard knocks along the way. The only thing that was positive was my fitness. I still suffer with my health, constantly having gut, bone and joint pains but I managed to turn my eating habits around and start exercising more frequently. I completely…

Blog Haitus – I’m Quitting

Hiya bellas, It’s been a hot minute since I posted and I apologise for going AWOL on you with no explanation. The last few months have been crazy and I decided to step back from it all to gather my thoughts. I know most of you are thinking the title is click bait like those videos on YouTube but I’ve been seriously considering how I feel and fit in with the beauty community both in and apart from my blog. Today’s post is going to be a chat about my thoughts, feelings and strong opinions about certain stuff. Most of you…

Happy New Year bellas, I know it has been a really long time since I posted so welcome back and I hope you’re doing well. I though I’d start off this year with a summary of how 2016 went and also what I have set for myself to achieve in the months to come. This post is gonna be a super long one so grab a drink, get comfy and tuck in. I’ve been reading a lot of reflection posts over the last couple of days and I’ve seen many people label 2016 as being a bad year. In some…

It’s finally here! Belle Blushh Glitter Glas...

Hiya bellas, The time has finally come where I can reveal to you the secret project I was working on. These gorgeous glitter glass holders perfect for any vanity. Now you’re probably thinking ‘But this isn’t a new thing’ and you’re right. So let me tell you why I chose to produce and sell these here. I had seen these on Instagram almost two years back and I fell in love. How badly I wanted these to display on my vanity to hold my makeup brushes and gussy up my workspace. Fast forward a year later and everyone began selling…

It’s my 2nd Blogiversary!!!

Oh my word! Can you believe it? It almost slipped my mind. Here I was, relaxing with the kids and it hit me like lightning once I realised the date. It has been exactly two years since I started blogging. And what a long way we’ve come. I remember my first post like it was yesterday. MAC Me Up was about the transformation I had undergone by just wearing makeup. It was the first time I had EVER worn foundation in my life (at the ripe old age of 27) and I decided to review the products I had picked…
