It’s an early Christmas Giveaway with TheraVine!

Skincare

 

Christmas came early! 

I have been doing quite a few giveaways with TheraVine lately, and I think it’s great because it’s a fantastic, reliable and local brand AND it is the reason I have the courage to have make-up free Mondays! I have been in partnership with this brand for nearly two years, because not only does my skin look and feel great, for two years it only kept on getting better. I have trusted various well-known brands before, and even though results were good, it only stayed good. If I am making sense? With TheraVine, my skin feels GREAT, and keeps on getting better.

October - Breast Cancer Awareness Month

It’s one word that gives me goosebumps. And not the good kind.

It’s always been the one word that never existed in my ‘world’. It’s always been some ‘thing’ you’ll see in the movies. Until it comes knocking on your door.

Winter weekend getaway

Review

Finally! It’s been quite a while since I had a ‘treat yourself’ moment with Donovan. I finally had the opportunity (and gap in my schedule) to slip away for one night. I was looking for something peaceful, relaxed, calm, perhaps with no signal (but my stress levels wouldn’t be able to handle that), but there was however no Wi-Fi (and exactly what my soul needed!) and just a proper getaway.

So, I have done various posts regarding juicing, why I love it, believe in it and also the various cleanses I have tried. From a three day, five day and a seven day cleanse... I have tried it. BUT, That was about a year ago. It was about time for me to refocus, refresh and rejuvenate myself again. My body begged me to do it.

Hi Guys!

So, even though I missed the launch in Johannesburg, I still had the opportunity to experiment and explore for the last two weeks, with the TRESemmé Botanique range.

In 2015 the worst thing I could possibly imagine, happened to my family. We lost our best friend, our rock, our female force, our everything. Our mom. People said ‘everything happens for a reason’, and it’s almost been two years, and I still haven’t found ‘that reason.’

The invisible crown you never take off

With a constantly on-the-go lifestyle, from gym to a shoot, from a shoot to meetings, and from meetings to adulting and doing the grocery shopping for the week, not only is looking good at all times quite necessary in this industry, but it surely takes a toll on my hairstyle and makeup for the day.

25 Years Young

My birthday was two weeks ago, and I know this post is late, but I had to just take a minute to appreciate everyone I have in my life, and how absolutely incredibly special my 25th birthday was. Yes, I said my age, and no I am not ashamed of it, I was given yet another year to live, breath and create a life worth living. Another year to set new goals and to get yet another step closer to reaching my full potential. Another year… What a blessing!

Birthday weekend at Bijoux 

What an absolutely magical weekend! It’s our 6th Birthday celebration together, and every year it only gets better and better. Last year we went zip-lining in Grabouw, and this year we decided for Donovan’s birthday (which is 4 days before mine), we will go for a weekend getaway at the Bijoux Aparthotel in Adderly street. So just by the way, we live in Somerset West, so Adderly street is a getaway for us, haha.

NutriBullet

So, everyone knows I have an obvious love for health and fitness. I train almost every day, well, at least 5-6 days a week. I believe our health is our greatest wealth and I try and only give my body what’s good, and what it needs. After cancer came knocking on our door, and God decided to take my mom back home in 2015, I decided I need to stick around long enough to see my baby sister grow up.

For the Love of Travel

I think March is the month when a lot of people, especially couples and families, tend to take their holiday. I’m assuming it’s because of the seasons changing, winter is coming and they want to enjoy the last warm days of the summer season. And the first term of the year is over! Some of them go holiday locally, and some travel overseas. Personally, I haven’t had a holiday in quite some time, but when I do get the opportunity, it would normally be over the December ‘festive season’.

VBlast – A literal explosion in your mouth.

Say YES to zero sugar, carbs and calories

 

I make it clear on a daily basis that I believe in the slogan: #BeYourBest. With a rise in obesity, diabetes and heart related diseases, it caused people to become more health conscious and make better choices when it comes to their lifestyles. This includes the food and beverages they purchase. I’ve been one of those people, who’s making lifestyle and health conscious changes.

The word says it all. It’s SUPER!

Lately I’ve been experimenting with different kinds of coffees, beverages, sports drinks and flavoured water. I live a very health conscious and well-balanced lifestyle and I like to fill my body with what’s best and what it needs.

Now come on, truth be told, we all love starting our day with a foamy cuppachino, an espresso, a coffee or a café latte ;) Honestly, I start mine with boiled water and a few slices of lemon, religiously. But after, I like a strong cup’a Joe! How about starting your day with a delicious latte mix with superfood benefits? I say YES please and you can thank me later.

A celebration of love, at Pelagus House – Five years later.

 

So, when Donovan and I met, we were kids. I was 19 and he was 21. We basically built everything we have today, together. I mean jeez, at 19 I wasn’t even sure of my correct bra size, never mind knowing what I want to be when I grow up.

This Summer, I’m #MeshingAround with GUESS.

 

When I was a little girl, I grew up with Guess billboards around me. I’m sure all of you did too? I always stared at the ‘lady’ with the full, golden locks, tanned skin and super long legs, strong cheek bones, red lips with a pair of Guess jeans or sunnies. Those are my earliest memories of GUESS. Wow, I always wanted to be that lady – so this is me trying ;)

Making a house a home

Making a house a home. No, making an apartment more than a just a living ‘space.’ 

When it comes to your first apartment- how do you make an apartment a home? Or do you make it ’homey’? Which is the correct word?

Well, this was a project I loved, and it’s still an ongoing process. It’s one of those things that brings so much joy into my life. The art of decorating. And the art of decorating a space you worked so hard for. Your own little piece of heaven.

Flowy floral dresses, high heels and oversized hats is what I am thinking when I hear the words ‘high tea’. With a demanding schedule and no time for any form of ‘down time’, never mind attending and enjoying a high tea, so I decided: Why not have the perfect, fruity tea in the comfort of my own home? And better yet, in a comfy tee and a pair of jeans? Okay, for those who enjoy dressing up, have your own little high tea at your home, and you wear your oversized hat girl.

Fierce, Flowy and Fabulous

What's your definition of 'Fashionable'?
To me, fashion is like art. It's a form of expression. I choose everything I wear carefully and I always dress the way I feel. I choose my colours, style and 'fashion vibe' for the day purely based on what side of the bed I got out on. And when you see me in sweats and a bun on my head, just know it was the wrong side. Haha, come on, we all have our off days.

Being in the industry, I have realised how stressful my work schedule can really become. Every day consists of long hours, little sleep, a lot of sun, heat, sweat OR very cold temperatures and rainy weather - AND shooting outdoors for hours – All of these factors can cause a lot of skin damage.

Beauty and the Blender

‘Wet, Squeeze, Bounce.’ That’s the beauty blender mantra. 

I only recently learned how to apply my makeup the correct way. You know, all of us see the tutorials on YouTube and all the makeup fails trending on social media. So, I started experimenting, trying new products and even learned how to contour and learned how to highlight the cheekbones. After many fails and almost looking like a clown, I think finally found the perfect makeup brand that works for me, my skin colour and skin type. MUD Make-up Designory foundation changed my life.

I think I make it fairly clear that I am in a relationship, even though I am a very private person when it comes to my family and my relationship. I think only a few people know it’s been almost 5 years. So, to give you a little bit of background, I have been with Donovan through so many ‘phases’ in my life. From being a 19 year old student, to doing promotional work, to doing ‘casual’ work at clothing boutiques for extra money, to him entering me for Miss South Africa in 2014, going to my Presenter Search on 3 audition with me, up until where we are today. Such a great and supportive human if you ask me.
