DIY Studs

This is one of my favourite items at the moment but after one wear I failed to read the “wash care label” and ended up washing it in a washing machine and not hand washing. The result all my gorgeous beading gone! I felt like crying literally…
I thought about repurchasing as it wasn’t that expensive… but thought it would be unnecessary as I was determined to bring my little baby back to live J
So I headed down to my local bead store and bought the beads for about R12 and voila I’ve got my shirt back! {Note that the glue is still wet in the after picture}

What do you think?

{OOTD} Outfit Of The Day


Dress- Mr Price, Earrings- Fashion Express, Denim Shorts- Got it at a sample sale
Everyone that knows me, knows that I am completely and insanely in love with anything leopard print! I wear it on my clothes, heels and most accessories! Today was a really a nice day in Cape Town, the weather is seemingly getting warmer, and warmer everyday {I’m not complaining at all} and all I wanna literally do is walk around in denim shorts and flip flops J
I was completely bored with the way I’ve been doing my hair lately I just literally wanted my hair out of my face as it was so hot! I decided to just plait my hair from one side to another. When it was done, I actually liked it a lot! Looked so different*

So this is just a quick post on my “Outfit of the day”. Trust you all had an awesome weekend thus far?

From Day to Night

Night Make up look
When heading out in the evening, a heavy eye as well as a bright lip works well. It shows confidence…
 This is merely a look which you can literally go from day to night. I am really enjoying using my Maybelline New York gel eyeliner 24h studio eye {08 Black Gold}. This liner lasted me whole day and it still looked in tack afterwards. I added my 012 Mac lipstick on my lips which was perfect for the evening. But for the day look I would merely just remove the bright lip colour and opt for my The Bodyshop lip gloss…
Day Make up look
When heading out in the day a heavy eye works well with nude lip… Choose one that works well, either heavy eye or heavy lip- never both... 

What products do you use when going for night or day look, any tips?

Get the look!

♥♥Denim shorts- Mr Price, Top- Forever21, Red Earrings- Mr Price, Silver bangle- Gift, Nail Polish- Sally Hansen♥♥

♥♥Dress & Belt- Phenomena, Arm Band- Mr Price, Nail Polish- Revlon, Necklace- Primark♥♥
It’s Friday and it’s a absolutely beautiful day in Cape Town! The weather is awesome and therefore I thought the pop of colour would be great…
I really love this Forever 21 tee and therefore could just see all the red and silver accessories match up with it. It’s such an easy laid back look with no effort at all. Denim shorts is one of the those items I buy all year round simply because I know this is what I will be living in all summer. So with both looks just add a pair simple black flip flops with a great pair of sunnies and you will be on some tropical island… with the wind blowing in your hair! OK! I have exaggerated that part* J

What’s your plans for the weekend?

Sass Diva

I am totally excited with all the awesome things that Sass Diva has brought to the table.  I went and checked out their website with the thought of just getting a few nice pieces but “boi oh boi” there was just so much to choose from. I was so impressed with the accessories range that they had available and I will definitely be doing some shopping! I mean they are really the one stop for all your accessory needs. I completely love the neon trend & Sass Diva was right on track and in season regarding what consumer’s are looking for in the market place at the right time.
Sass Diva arrived on South Africa’s shores in 2007 and is offering its customers up to the minute jewellery at affordable prices – without compromising on quality or style.
Which item do you like?

Nails of the Day

I was actually in quiet a hurry this morning so I opted for a easy simple colour. Purple and Pink, this was actually fun doing at 5:30 in the morning…errr!! Ever since I found this easy dry nail express drops from Essence that dries my nails instantly after a polish (See Previous Post) I just want to wear nail colour all the time, the fact that I can change my nail colour whenever I want to without the time it takes to dry just makes me feel completely Liberated! Maybe that’s the wrong word… Ok! It works and that’s all that matters J  I’m wearing a colour dress and thought that this nails would fit perfectly. When I took this picture I had just added the drops hence the reason why it’s looking rather wet or oily on the sides. Just wanted to show you a picture*
What colour nails are rocking today?

The Body Shop- Beauty with Heart

Ever since I can remember, I’ve always loved “The Body Shops” body butter. It just has the most amazing fragrance that sticks to your skin for whole day! No Jokes…
I’ve tried various brands and the body butter and it’s just not the same… So my hubby took me shopping yesterday, and just couldn’t resist…
What makes this body butter and all “The Body Shops” products absolutely fantastic is the following:
·         It’s Against Animal Testing
·         Supports Community Fair Trade
·         Activates Self Esteem
·         Defends Human Rights
·         Protects the planet
Have anyone of you tried any of there Products and which are your favourite?

Express Dry Drops

♥♥Essence Express Nail Art Dry Drops ♥♥
This product is the best thing since sliced bread! I’ve really never been so excited about a product that works…
So picture this: your alarm did not go off this morning, and as you gaze at the time you realize that you’ll have to shower, get dressed and eat in a matter of minutes. You look down at your nails and realize that you in need of a serious coat of paint! So here you are, sitting in the car on your way to work painting your nails, now the hard work starts. You roll down your window and stick your nails out to dry. Your phone rings and you try to take it out of your bag… Ooooh your nail just smudged! You eventually start licking your nails to dry. But it’s taking too long… so you end up at work, having to hide your fingers, as it looks like you just went digging at mining site J
Well now with ease I can tell you that it won’t have to be YOU! This product is amaaazzzeee-balls!
I literally put a fresh coat of paint on, and then dropped 2 drops on the nail and blew lightly. The nail was dry in a matter of 3 seconds!
Try it and let me know what you think?
