Spontaneous Adventures and Winter Layers


Hello  😊

You might be thinking that my post Title might totally be off or not too fitting for my blog but hey sometimes spontaneous adventures can turn into a awesome photo shoot yaaassssss ! 


The initial plan for the day was to stalk the maze runner cast in town (gosh I'm such a fan of Dylan O'brien #fangirl alert #sorrynotsorry) since my sister had to be picked up from uni in Town I thought I'd take the chance. It was super cold , overcast and a bit of rain here and there but I was willing to take the chance of catching a glimpse of the set or simply hoping to bump into anyone one of the cast members (I'm that cray). 
Anyway I'm sure you don't want to hear me fan-girl all through this post soo... let me get to the point. 
Stalking mission totally FAILED ,  my sister then messaged me to bring the camera along and I did so, she then nagged dad to take us up to Signal Hill but eventually landed up at Devils Peak , Table Mountain. Yep ..we love those random adventures.

About this look:
My aim was to experiment with a layered look and I think it turned out to fit perfectly with the weather. I can't explain how obsessed I am with my Denim Jacket from The Fix I can pair it with most of my outfits because it tends to go with everything. I'm a huge fan of beanies in winter its one accessory that you will always see me rocking in the winter season. Lastly don't you love blanket scarves ? Ladies its defz a must have! if you don't have one please head on over to the shops and get you one you won't regret it so warm the bigger the better.

Review : Lush - Bubblegum Lip Scrub

Hello Beauties 

I've always wanted to purchase something from the LUSH store ,about a month ago I decided to pop in for the fun of it and came across a product that actually came to my favor. 

Lately my lips have been looking rather dry and chapped but thanks to the lip scrub I found at LUSH it's looking more smooth and less chapped.


It comes in three scents Bubblegum , Popcorn and Mint Julips and obviously and went for bubblegum because it was pink and the smell was just amazing I could not resist.

What I love about this product:
  • The scent is amazing.
  • Conditions lips.
  • Takes away any dead skin on the lips. 
I've added this to my routine by exfoliating my lips atleast once a week. It retails for R105.00 at Lush which may seem too much for a scrub in a small container but really ladies once you have used this product you would want to get you the other scrubs as well.

Overall this being my first product form Lush, I do see myself going back to the LUSH store to get the Popcorn and Mint Julips Scrubs to add to my collection and other products which I'm excited to purchase and hopefully share some reviews with you.  


I rate this product 5/5.

Stay Fabulous

Catch Up and Stripes

Hi Lovelies ..

Oh gosh its been ages since I last posted DECEMBER last whaaaat!
You have no idea of how much I missed this little space of mine , I hope you missed me too.

I cannot believe half the year is gone already and I haven't posted one post yet(but here I am yay!) , to be honest I didn't have time to put content together along with feeling uninspired here and there. I keep promising myself I would post more but keep disappointing myself, so bare with me if you are a regular reader of my blog I'm super sorry. I'm trying my best to get some content together , so if you maybe have a particular fashion topic or if you would like a style post or whatever is related to my blog please feel free to email or comment below what you would like to see more on the blog :) . I've decided I'm not going to put pressure on myself if I post I post if I don't I don't because at the end of the day I would love to share great content that you love reading and content I'm happy with and hopefully I will become regular because I love putting looks together, fashion thoughts and sharing what I love with you guys.

oh and I begun a little exciting project to get some what creative or to see if I still have the creative spark in me you can check it out on Instagram (Chokers And Statements) where I will create some Fashion Jewelry pieces/ statements which I will be selling.. soo lets see where my little hobby takes me. If there is one thing you should know about me is that I love hustling , try something sell something haha.. the thing is you never know. Aspiring Entrepreneur?? Jack of all trades?? mmm     

BTW I hope 2017 is treating you well so far.

About this look:
I've been loving stripe tops lately I don't know why but if I could own them in different colours that would be awesome. I used my stripe top to break the rest of my outfit and a figure belt to enhance my sleeveless coat even more as most of my outfit was all black toned . I then added my pink bag accessory and hat to complete the look.

What is your favorite clothing item or accessory to break a plain outfit? 






What I'm Wearing:

Hat : Cotton On
Top and Jegging : PNP Clothing
Bag : H&M
Bag Accessory : Foschini

Summer Trends


Hi Lovelies.
Gosh..it feels good to be sitting behind the PC again just blogging because I have some free time , which is very rare these days because I'm constantly just caught up with day to day things, I hardly have time to sit and blog (sigh).

Anyway since I'm here I figured I compile a little What's Trending This Summer collage of what is in store at the moment and what I think is the HOT items for the summer season.



1. Earrings - H&M R149
These tassel earrings seem to be super popular lately , I've seen many bloggers and fashionistas rocking it. These earrings are a great statement to add to an outfit. I'm really contemplating on getting me a pair.

2. Sunglasses - Miss Maxi R229 (Can be purchased on Zando)
Im loving reflective lenses it updates your look instantly and gosh you guys know how much I love my sunglasses, I really need to start collecting them without one going missing or breaking before purchasing the next pair. You will find a range of colours available at most stores, girrl you gotta get you a pair you will not be sorry trust me.

3. Dress - Mr Price R159.99
The cold shoulder , bare shoulder trend is definatly the summer trend and this dress from Mr Price is soo cute I'm thinking of purchasing it myself. If you see yourself rocking this trend there are a variety of stores that you can spot bare shoulder tops/dresses.

4. Bag - Mr Price R159.99
Ok the bag may not be a trend but the colour Rose Gold and Mettallic feel is surely making a statement in fashion from jackets , sandals , jewls you name it, own anything in rose gold or mettallic you winning. I think this bag is actually cool for packing your belongings in for a day out.

5. Colourful necklaces and chokers
I'm really loving the jewellry this season soo many colours and funky designs and the brighter the better. Then... the choker trend which has been even bigger than before in my opinion and is not going anywhere soon , we did see it in winter but the trend is still going strong and think it will surely stick around for all seasons to come.

6. Shoes - Espadril R599
I NEED!!!! Ladies don't you think these shoes are amazing ? I really want to purchase every design from ESPADRIL each pair is hand made how awesome? I need to save ASAP I hope I own a pair soon. I see many stores stocking all kinds of espadrilles soo have a look around there are some affordable ones out there because the are super trendy this summer.

7. Shorts - Mr Price R159.99
Im really loving the lace detail that is being incorporated into clothing pieces lately I think it gives summer a fresh look. The boho trend seems to be dominating fashion lately I'm loving it.

There you have it my top trending pieces for the summer and where you can find them. What trends are you loving this summer?? :)

Stay Fabulous

Review : Essence Soft Touch Mousse and Essence Camouflage Cream Concealer

Hey Beauties


 I have a beauty post up , all about the Essence Soft Touch Mousse and Essence Camouflage Concealer. I'm always on the look out for some affordable cover ups because I'm one that don't usually wear foundations/mousses everyday but like a good cover up now and then.

Essence Soft Touch Mousse - 02 Matt Beige 

I love the fact that the coverage of the mousse is good enough to last a couple of hours and for the price I think it's actually worth it . I took the shade 02 matt beige for myself as I'm fair in complexion. I'm already on my second tub soo... yup I'm happy with the product. 
I would like to buy the darker shades to experiment with some contouring. (Retails for +/- R64)


Essence Camouflage Cream Concealer 

I think this will probably be one of my favourite concealers because before applying the mousse I take a small brush and cover all my marks and under -eye area (cough cough you know them dark circles). I must say I do actually love a liquid concealer but this one does what it suppose to do and happy with the outcome once applied. (Retails for +/- R54.00)

If you a beginner at make-up like me or just looking for products to give you a basic look and looking for affordable cover up make up to experiment with then I say go ahead and purchase these from Essence and let me know what your thoughts are.

These products can be found at Clicks , DisChem and PnP stores

I hope you loved this review short and sweet and thanks for reading.

#OOTD Tan Overload

Hello .... is it Monday already?? Damn where did the weekend goo!

Anyway...I ended the weekend off with a lovely afternoon stroll on the beach with the family.

About my Look: 

Soo I've been thinking and my tan shoes from Foschini is going to be a huge part of my summer wardrobe and have a feeling I'll probably be pairing it with everything besides my white sneakers that will always make an appearance. What I'm actually saying is that if you don't have a pair of tan shoes/sandals girrrrl you gotta get a pair asap. I also think I will be stocking up a lot of white tops , I see many pretty lace tops in store at the moment I need to get my hands on one. If you a girl like me that can sometimes be very lazy to to chop and change bags or accessories daily then stick to tans , black or neutrals as I did with my bag , sunnies and cap then you good to goo and can pair it with almost all your outfits. I'm also on the search for a good denim jean any suggestions?as I desperately need one because I basically took this one from my sister before she put it in the throw out pile, but I love it because I like the fit (the struggle to find a jean that fit me properly)




I then went online browsing again and thought I'd re-create my look and gathered items similar to my #OOTD look to help you get your basics for spring/summer.  

1. Sunglasses - Mr Price R59.99
2. Lace Top - Mr Price R89.99
3. Shoulder Bag - H&M R229
4. Straw Hat -H&M R249 (could not find a cap similar to mine but you will find at cotton on ...but on     the bright side a straw hat would look perfect too)
5. Denims - Foschini R550 
6. Tan Sandal - Poetry R799

I hope you enjoyed this post , thanks for reading and have a great Monday.

Stay Fabulous

Pop Of Spring

Hey lovelies 

Cape Town is slowly showing signs of warmer weather but Sunday was just lovely, it was all sunshine in the Mother City and the day could not be wasted at home. It was a well spent afternoon having late lunch with the family in Hout Bay catching up and enjoying the scenery.

I'm so excited for the upcoming season as we see lots of lighter colour clothing in stores that just scream spring/summer which is super exciting. I seriously need a shopping spree, I'm already eyeing so many items in store from quirky shoes to beautiful dresses.

Having trouble transitioning from winter to spring? Here are some must haves just to get you started:
  • White Jean
  • Versitile Sandle / Shoe or Sneaker 
  • White Shirt 
  • Maxi Dress
  • Sunglasses
then... obviously there are the trending items such as the off the shoulder tops , pajama like pants with the funky patterns which you can buy in between if its your style or if you have a little extra cash to splurge.


In my look below I'm wearing my super comfy white jegging , a white top and layered it with a super lightweight peach jersey paired with my new favourite tan sandle (did you notice? I'm not wearing sneakers lol) and a backpack to complete the look along with a bold statement to break the outfit a bit and duuhh cannot leave those sunnies behind. It was refreshing dressing in lighter colours and weird wearing sandles after a long long time...yay! bring on those summer days. 








Hope you enjoyed this post , thanks for reading and Have a lovely Tuesday :) 

What I'm Wearing 
Jersey : Woolworths
Jegging : PNP Clothing
Shoes : Foschini
Bag : The Fix
Sunnies : Edgars
White Top : Practical Gifts (old)
