the do’s and don’ts of finding a grey

Entering the latter half of your twenties comes with a whole new world of bodily changes.  For me, my metabolism has slowed. right. down. and even thinking about food goes straight to my hips and thighs. Another great discovery I recently made is grey hair. I’m not embarrassed about it as there is nothing I…

my favourite french instagram accounts

There’s an unspoken cultural rule that states French women are just naturally chic and effortlessly cool with the ‘I woke up like this’ look down to a fine science. With books, YouTube channels and fashion shoots all dedicated to one of the fashion capitals of the world, Paris just oozes style and sophistication. For as…

no idea beauty: a launch

Is it just me or do you also feel like everyone knows ‘how to: makeup’ leaps and bounds ahead of you? When it comes to beauty, I know the basics but no matter how many Youtube tutorials I watch, my contouring game is non-existent. I also only just found out baking isn’t just for cakes and…

and then a hero comes along

On Fridays, I usually finish work early to kick-start the weekend and I often find myself at the shops ‘just looking’ and not spending any money whatsoever… Yeah right! I was aimlessly wandering around Mecca recently and saw the Go-To sheet masks on display and thought I’d give it a try. I’ve heard so much…

Sitting at a desk for the majority of my day doesn’t usually physically exhaust me so I find it difficult to drink the recommended 2L each day. Two years ago I visited my naturopath after having suffered from skin issues for quite some time. We went through the usual questions and then she asked me…

can crystals help your skin?

Today I purchased the rose quartz heart facial sculptor from Miranda Kerr’s Kora Organics and I’m already in love!

It’s important that…

i’ve found the world’s comfiest jeans

I like to be organised. I pride myself on it and I’m known for it by my friends and colleagues. As a result of said quality, I start my Christmas shopping in November. By doing so, I have more time to think about the gifts I buy and I also get to take advantage of both…

on the streets: new york fashion week

New York is one of the fashion capitals of the world and during Fashion week, eyes aren’t just on the runways.

You’ll always find me checking out Vogue and Harper’s Bazaar’s street style galleries during the month-long festival of fashion,…
