Rubybox: Beauty Night Out

So on Friday I headed out to the well anticipated Rubybox #beautynightout event with my friend Crystal. This was my 1st year going so I didn't quite know what to expect at an event like this... but I was pleasantly surprised.
As we arrived the lovely Rubybox ladies gave us armband which had the #beautynightout written on it. We were told to tweet using that hashtag and that you could WIN big. Being the kind of girl who doesn't really get excited for competitions, as I have the notion of if I win, that’s great. But if I don’t, it’s ok too.
We received our welcoming drink and moved on to the various stations which were set up for our enjoyment. The first station I just had to see was the stunning ladies from mangwanani giving massages and after the day I had, this was definitely I must. I decided to go for a pressure point massage and it was heavenly. I didn't think I would like it as much as what I did. I felt so refreshed and relaxed. I was having so much fun taking selfies while getting my massage on, that I didn't even notice that a picture was being taken. Ha ha ha
I then moved on to the Sally Hansen Nail bar, and I really could not decide what I wanted. But after much deliberation I decided to try the Midnight in NY colour. It looked stunning on.
So by this time, I had tweet & posted how much fun I was having all over social media. The Rubybox ladies then took to the stage and then announced the winners of some prizes. They mentioned that they will be giving away 2 return flight tickets to anywhere in SA along with many other prizes that I failed to hear of.
At that time, I was chatting to my friend Crystal, but also thinking to myself how awesome it would be to win those tickets & then in that moment of silence I hear my name being called… Channichic…. Channichic? When I realized that I was being called I exploded with excitement and I really could not contain my joy! My night was made….
I then attempted to mildly calm down and enjoy the rest of the evening.

I then decided to get my Make Up done at the Stila counter and it really rounded off a stunning evening of pampering.
Last but definitely not least we could go and create our very own Rubybox, by choosing 4 different products that we wanted to include.
All in all, it was an exceptionally well organized event. Definitely looking forward to next year.

My Outfit Look: Little White Dress

I have so many new look post to load for your viewing pleasure, but I’ll start with the shoot I did with Lisa Wayne Creations and I only got around to going through the images now. So ill be loading it bit by bit.
I’ll give you a bit of outfit information, this dress is another one which I got a while ago from Foschini, it’s like my back up little white dress. It’s just such an elegant easy, flowing style that I end up wearing over and over. I would merely add another bag, shoes & accessories and this dress looks so fresh all over again.
The heels are Luella, and the clutch I actually cannot remember where it’s from. Sorry.

My Outfit Look: Famous

I have so many new look post to load for your viewing pleasure, but I’ll start with the shoot I did with Lisa Wayne Creations and I only got around to going through the images now. So ill be loading it bit by bit.
I love this easy going t-shirt I purchased from Mr Price aswell as this Black Bag looking skirt. When I saw this skirt it looked so daring and fun, I knew that I just had to have it. The Celine inspired handbag I purchased from Mr Price aswell a couple of months prior. Really such gems. 

Seeing that this skirt and t-shirt was black and rather dark, I really wanted some pop of colour and fell madly in-love with these cobalt heels I purchased at Fashion Express. Aren't they just a breath of fresh air…

Hope you like my lookbook xx

Dermalogica Face Mapping & Analysis

I was super excited when I was invited by Heather a fun loving blogger at Femme Lifestyle to attend a Dermalogica skin mapping event as a guest with "bloggers who bless" girls.
I arrived at the Dermalogica at Wembley Square and was welcomed by all the lovely bloggers. The dermalogica ladies then explain to us the skin mapping process. We were explained that our face will be divided into 14 sections and they will the bit by bit analyze those key areas.
So results of skin reveals your skins condition as well as the products most effective at delivering all-over skin health. To access your progress and accuracy of your product regimen, you need to receive a face mapping every 4-6 weeks.
So after my face analysis it showed that I had some signs dehydration & comedones- which stands for aka blackheads. Eeeekkkk when I looked into the mirror that was definitely not what I saw, but I guess when they looking at it with a microscope there is very little that could hide.
OK so it sucked to have that written all over my face analysis map but the cool part was that they prescribed us products that specifically suited our problems.
Everyone had a different problem and that was what made it so awesome, that Dermalogica has a product to suit every skin issue that was thrown at them.
After getting our skin mapped the Dermalogica lady called Lucinda showed us how to remove our makeup, and apply all the various product which was prescribed for us.
It really was such an informative session.
These 3 below products are currently my favourite and is perfect for my skin the special cleansing gel, daily microfoliant & active moist.
I would really recommend you to get your face mapped as it highlights any concerns that can tackle now before it becomes too late.
