New in: Revlon Matte Balm

Anyone who knows me knows I prefer eye make up to any other kind. This stems mainly from being teased as a child for having such big eyes. Fast forward a few years and I was looking for every way to make my eyes look more beautiful. Now I realize having big eyes is actually beautiful in it self.

Enough with the sob story however. Even though I am mostly a creature of habit. I couldnt resist buying these beauties from Revlon.  Apart from the convenient size and the amazing colour payoff; I also love the minty smell of the balms. It goes on smoothly and, even though its a matte formula, it doesn't leave my lips looking or feeling dry. I had to reapply once or twice during the day but I really didn't mind that. I am actually growing really fond of these matte balms. Who knows; I might just start to become a lip make up girl now.

Great packaging!

Sunday Style Sweethearts

I like to spend my Sundays doing pretty much nothing. After  hectic week at work,winding down with a a glass of wine and a few blogs is the epitome of relaxation.

That's where Sunday Style Sweethearts come in. With a new week looming ahead it only makes sense to be prepared. I enjoy gathering style inspiration and entering the week with somewhat of a style plan. Whether it be in the form of celebrities or street style stars;  inspo is EVERYWHERE. I hope this week's edition brings you bucket loads of motivation to be stylish every day of the week.

First impression : Revlon Photoready Skinlights Illuminator

On certain days I feel naturally glowy. Those are the days when I wake-up way before my alarm goes off. When my hair is behaving and my stomache seems extra flat. The days when my eyeliner is perfectly winged. For the other days I have discovered something just as amazing.

While browsing through the sale racks at Dischem I stumbled upon the only illuminator left . Now, I have read about illuminators before but, it never occurred to me that I might actually enjoy using it. I figured it was worth the experiment.

I love the packaging .
The formula is super lightweight so you don't waste time and energy blending. And speaking of blending; you can put on as much or as little as you and you won't end up resembling Edward Cullen. In fact, it is quite a healthy looking glow that you end up with. I usually put on a little bit on where the sun hits my face. I love the effect.

300 Peach Light
Have you used Revlon Photoready Skinlights Illuminator or something similar? I would love to hear from you.

Look post : The skirt

My son makes a habit of taking pictures of me every time he thinks I look beautiful  (perks of having a son ). These particular ones were taken the other day before heading out.

I love blogging about trends but I usually shy away from doing look posts because I fear they won't be as good as most of the more popular blogs. However, I figured why not. Because these pictures were so unplanned and not taken professionally; I love them even more.

This is what I look like on most days and this is what I want my readers to see : just me!

The details 

*body suit and skirt- Mr Price
*Shoes - Foschini
*Glasses and necklace - gifted
