Last night I attended the annual kykNET Fiestas – a glamour filled evening with celebrities, great performances and the reason why we attended this prestigious occasion; to celebrate and acknowledge the actors, actress, performers and visual art artists who made Afrikaans theatre what it is today!

It’s a evening where you can dress to your heart’s desire – flowy dress, full face make-up, high heals… mirrored ball war hats – yes; you read correctly! Let’s just say some of the attendees won’t be going on Skattie wat dra jy‘s best dressed list!

What do you think?

Last weekend I went on a bit of a shopping ‘outing’ – oh and did I enjoy it!!

Well – I bought a few items; one of these items being a Leopard Print Jumpsuit {from Mr. Price} (boob-tube which ties at the waist). Although I did think it’s a tad Out-There for me; I really liked the fabric and just went for it; “Hell; why not!”

Animal print has been doing its rounds in the fashion world – on handbags, belts, shoes, jumpsuits (yay!) and of course – various tops, personally I don’t think it has reached its peak or rather ‘pit’ as yet. I see new items – proudly showcasing various prints – emerging all over the place!

Although I got a few rather strange looks from my colleagues I still think it’s too cool not to wear; I use cool lightly as really – it’s very cool on this hot summer’s day in SA.

What do you think of Animal Print? (Leopard print in particular?)

I’ll post Pics tomorrow.

There’s nothing as fabulous as a Bronzer/Blusher – especially in Summertime; to accentuate your already beautiful sun-kissed tan or for those who doesn’t quite enjoy the sunny weather as much as I do – to fake a bronzed tan.

So to my (uber) delight I came across the Body Shop Sale while having breakfast with my mom; inevitably I had to excuse myself for a mere second (which turned into an occurring visit) to just have a ‘quick look’ at what’s on offer!

Oh what a sale can do to one – already financially strained – make-up and beauty obsessed woman. Nevertheless I scratched together my cents and purchased one of the best products I have ever come across – It’s a Bronzer/Shimmery Powder/Blusher (Real Name: Baked Domed Marbelized Compact) which accentuates and defines your cheekbone; leaves the (perfect) rosy tint on the apples of your cheeks and most importantly – leaves you feeling (and looking) amazing! So go, go, go – get yourself one as well. The sale ends on 29 January 2012! JUST in time for payday!

If my – sometimes strange – description didn’t quite cut it; here’s a picture!
