New Years Eve: Bye Bye 2013

I can’t believe that this year has passed this fast. With all the festive seasons excitement I've been rather quiet as I literally just wanted to soak up the sun and have some me time. But I definitely couldn't see 2013 off without a New Years post.

As I’m getting ready for the New Years Eve festivities I thought I’ll just take some pictures and inevitably ended up getting carried away. I know that some off my friends has been planning there outfits for weeks, so I hope you enter the New Year with style xx

I opted for a simple Neon dress from Foschini, but I also had so much fun doing my make-up and nails that I had to show you guys…
I just love this make up look I created. I merely took bright yellow eyeshadow and based my entire eye and then added a charcoal colour eyeshadow to my corners. I finished the look with a Liquid liner and Mascara.
I don’t really do New Year’s resolutions as I am constantly on the pursuit to learn and grow and I find it crazy that everyone always seems to only wait for this time of the year to make changes. But what I do pray is that everything that has happened in 2013, will not dictate your future. 2014 will be a year of abundance for you and your family. It will be a year of more than enough, may your family and friends experience love, peace and joy that will surpass all understanding.

2013 has come to an end and as I reflect back I've been so blessed to have met so many amazing people through my blog, and also all the great opportunities that has been availed to me.
If 2013 was anything to go by 2014 will be even better.
Love, Laugh & Live

Captured Moments

My photographer sister had asked myself and Clinton (hubby) whether we wanted to do a couples shoot with her... We just couldn’t say no as I desperately needed some new pictures to spice up our picture wall in our home. But who anyways says no to pretty pics hey!

It was so much fun as we went to this stunning dam location and she and her husband just snapped away.
They took pictures with us not even noticing that it was taken and the fun element definitely came to play.


If you live in the Cape Town area and looking to do a Photo shoot whether it is a Wedding, engagement or maternity shoot ect. Check out her Facebook page: for enquiries.

Shimmy Beach Club

Today our year end function was held at the very much stylish, Shimmy Beach Club in Waterfront. The weather had definitely played along as we had an absolutely stunning sunny day. Our theme was tropical, but I couldn't decide what to wear so I opted for a bright coral sunny dress with flats and my favourite Blackcherry handbag.
Above is a picture taken with my blogger buddy, check out her blog: Something in Sane

Where was your end of year function held?

Estee Lauder was there to do some make up touch ups as you shop, only thing was I think the space was rather limiting for the amount of people at the event, I would often find myself bumping into others... other than that the goodie bags had some awesome discounted vouchers which you could shop at the various spots within the event!

#1 beauty tip: How to make your eye-shadow stay on the entire day

When asked by Clicks 'What's your #1 Beauty Tip or Beauty Trick?'
I immediately knew that for many years I struggled with getting my eye-shadow to stay on. In the morning I would put on eye-shadow and by lunch time my eye-shadow would have either disappeared or there would be a gunky crease in the corner of my lids.
We always hear about using eye primers from the most expensive brands, but that was simply not an option for me.

 A couple of months ago, I found this eye base from Essence and I have never looked back… he he he literally, it’s about 23ish rand so totally affordable! BONUS xx
What is eye-shadow if you don't have the proper brushes? I know RIGHT...

Please check out my video and I would love to know what your #1 Beauty Tip is?

The Winner is....

Well Done and Congratulations to the Winner xx
