Gin and Bear it

This past Saturday, 10 June marked World Gin Day, and as a frequent drinker of gin, I felt that I had to celebrate the occasion properly. And so I managed to force myself out of my very warm bed, put on some clothes and make my way down to the The Willaston Bar at The…

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┬áR340 online at http://www.brinea.co.za) to test and review.
