GUESS what?!

It’s 2018 and I’m starting it off with a BANG! First of all, the New Year resolutions must be running high and you’re either super excited, nervous or scared for the New Year, but there’s literally never been a better time for a fresh start than TODAY! It’s a brand, spanking-new YEAR my friends! Here are some of my most loved new-year-quotes:

“Hope Smiles from the threshold of the year to come, Whispering 'it will be happier'...” ― Alfred Tennyson

It’s an early Christmas Giveaway with TheraVine!



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.

TRESemmé Botanique Hair Care


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. First of all, looking at these bottles when they first arrived at my doorstep, I felt like I needed to go on a tropical vacation and sip on coconut water! These bottles are funky-fresh and giving me all kinds of tropical feels!

Wacky Wine Time!


So, it is that time of the year again! From 1-4 June 2017, Robertson will be filled with excited families, large groups of friends, wine-lovers and foodies! I have only seen incredibly fun photos of this event year after year, and I have always been interested in attending, I guess because I love a good vibe, a good time and good food 😉 and the opportunity finally came my way as I actually have an off weekend!

 So I have introduced ‘SportsLuxe’ into my life recently, mixing a sporty-gym yet effortlessly stylish look because it’s just a bit too much running around town from meeting to meeting in my very high heels, every day. Balance is key, and I think my fashion sense and style has evolved. So, my sneakers are my favourite next best thing and I have quite the collection.

You guys! Love is in the air!

One of the best days of the year (in my opinion) is around the corner. Whether you’re single or in a relationship, Valentines day gives any girl butterflies. The thought of having a mysterious crush, getting flowers and chocolates from your lover…

Perfume Power


So, for those of you who’s been following my Instagram stories for the last twelve days, would have noticed that I have been experimenting with different fragrances each day, to find my perfect scent-fit. I did this by using The Scent Journey Gift Inspiration box, from Perfume Power SA, with twelve different little perfume vials inside, and a booklet explaining each scent.

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 ;)
