Review: Rimmel Stay Matte Liquid Lips (plus: giveaway!)

I am a huge fan of matte liquid lipsticks. I’ve tried quite a few, and actually earlier this year I actually tweeted the following: There’s a character in a @MarianKeyes novel whose life goal is to find a long lasting red lipstick. It me, but with a matt lipsticks. — ♎️Jamie♎️ (@eimaj_j) March 25, 2017…

Review: John Frieda Sheer Blonde Shampoo and Conditioner

Being a fan of John Frieda hair products, and having had used part of their Sheer Blonde range before (you can read more here) – I was very excited to test…

Beautiful Boschendal

After what can only be described as one of the longest weeks of my life, I woke up on Sunday both extremely tired and yet excitedly ready for the day ahead. You see, Leanne and I had previously seen a deal for a 120 min spa treatment, which included a 60 minute Swedish massage, a…

Review: 3D Fiber Lashes

As part of my very recent foray in beauty blogging, I was sent the new and exciting (to me, at least) 3D Fiber Lashes (which you can purchase for R340 online at http://www.brinea.co.za) to test and review. In the box there are 2 tubes – one is the transplanting gel, the other is the actual fibers….

Face Mapping and Body Loving

Last Thursday saw my sister and I at the Dermalogica store at Cavendish Square, undergoing Face Mapping. This is a unique Dermalogica process where a Professional Skin Therapist uses Face Mapping to divide the facial landscape into fourteen zones.

Box Blondes Have Less Fun

Review: Avon Ultra Glazewear Absolute Lipgloss

To be completely honest, I had never tried an Avon product before, and so I was extremely excited when I received my Avon Ultra Glazewear lipglosses from Beauty Bulletin in two shades: soft peach and renewing rose. Firstly, the colours were perfect for me: soft, subtle tones with a brilliant shine, that are perfect for…

Tips for growing out a pixie cut

After I completed law school and my board exams, I decided to finally try out a haircut I’d always been fascinated with: the pixie. And while I loved having super short hair, the real battle came after: trying to grow the damn thing out. After googling various other tips for growing out the cut, I…

An experience in threading

Once in a while (every six months or so), I look in the mirror and gaze upon the mess that is my eyebrows. Not that they look too bad, not caveman style or anything, but it’s just that after a long time I realise that maybe I should try to tidy them up. To be…
