Waiting for You

Hi Everyone Today it gives me great pleasure to host one of my very special friends on Inspire You. Mel and I have been friends for a pretty long time now and she has been wanting to get her book published for ages. After many heart-breaking rejections, I’m so thrilled to announce that finally her dream is materialising. If you missed any of her previous pit stops on her blog tour, your…


Green Smoothie

Hello Beautiful People Welcome to the 3rd month of 2016. Wow, how time flies hey. I hope your year is turning out as awesome as you planned and I do hope that you’re working hard to achieve those goals.  It’s been quite a busy and crazy start to the year for me and it doesn’t seem like it’s going to let up anytime soon. You all know that I love my…


Let it Go

I’m sitting in my lounge, @ 10pm on a Tuesday night, munching on some fruit salad (yeah, I’m good hey) and sipping on some chamomile tea (in this heat, yep, add crazy to that profile too). Anyway I’m saying all this because to be honest, I had no intention of writing tonight. However I have to say that, it has been a rough week, wait scratch that, it has been…


Organise Your Life

As most of you know, my mornings are usually a mad rush, bouncing out of bed, jumping in and out of the shower, painstakingly deciding what to wear and finally resorting to something that doesn’t need to be ironed because ultimately time is of the essence. However, my evenings are completely the opposite. I started making some changes in late 2015 and I continue to do so every day. And…


L.A. Girl

If you know me well, then you know I’m quite green when it comes to makeup.  I watch a lot of makeup videos and I follow a lot of beauty bloggers to keep up and learn how to apply makeup properly.  I recently realised that my makeup collection had dwindled quite drastically so off I went to the shops, but I am very selective when it comes to shopping. Quite…


2016 is around the corner

Gosh, where has this year gone to. I cannot believe we are in the last remaining month of 2015. The year didn’t turn out the way I expected it to, however it wasn’t all bad. I’ve never been much of a planner and my reason for this was because you can plan as much as you want but things never turn out that way. There’s your plan….and then there’s God’s…


Watermelon Smoothie

  Durban has been exceptionally hot and humid the past few days. When I popped into the supermarket, I happen to come across watermelon. I hadn’t had this for ages and with my new addiction to smoothies, I decided to buy it and whip up something sweet for a change. So what’s the deal with watermelons? The health benefits of watermelon include the prevention of kidney disorders, high blood pressure,…


The Make Up Eraser

Hello Beautiful people Today on the blog, I will be discussing the makeup eraser. Now, this has been quite a craze in the beauty world and after seeing it on instagram so many times, I finally jumped on the bandwagon and purchased one. Let me firstly say, this piece of cloth sells for between R250 – R300. I know you are inwardly cringing, I did as well, that is why it actually…


Health Benefits of Dates

  Hello Beautiful People As most of you may know, I have taken steps to lead a healthier lifestyle. I don’t believe in fad diets. I want to live a healthy life and am trying to incorporate more fruit and veg, and less processed foods in my diet. Don’t get me wrong, I do enjoy the occasional take out, but most of my meals are now freshly prepared at home,…

Lush: Lovely Jubblies

Hello Beautiful People Did you know that October was breast cancer awareness month. If you didn’t, then shame on you. Yes, I do know that we’re in November, but creating awareness on this topic should not only be subjected to a particular month. I will be touching on this subject  a few times this month in various posts. Keep a lookout. Our breasts, one of our greatest,most talked about and looked…
