In a market saturated with many multitudes of beauty treatments and facials—it’s difficult to find one that truly differentiates itself. But, I truly have!   If you read my reviews then by now you know that my skin is not run-of-the-mill as I suffer from dehydration, sensitivity and also flare-ups of rosacea which means I need a facial that takes all of this into account. I was assured by the Team Dr Joseph professionals that not only would my skin love this facial but that it would also be something completely extraordinary.   It was decided that I would receive the Intense Purifying Face Treatment for a visibly fresher complexion and to bring back vital radiance— yes, I was surely in need of this after a few sleepless nights thanks to a sick child, as well as the onset of winter which meant that my skins was beginning to feel ratherRead More

What better way to cheer yourself up and get out of this gloomy cold weather, than a visit to your friendly hair salon.   I was lucky enough to be squeezed in for a much needed pamper session at my local Style Bar this morning, and it certainly lifted my spirits.     They also stock some of my favourite hair products and styling aids.   Love these bright new Tangle Teezers.   Loads of top hair brands to choose from.   Style Bar Website: http://www.stylebar.co.za/ Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/stylebarsa Twitter: https://twitter.com/stylebarsa

TT - Thick & Curly (2)

  There are a handful of hair care products that I LOVE and would recommend to anyone without any hesitation, and the Tangle Teezer is on the top of that list.

BVLGARI Omnia Paraiba Review

Posted on by Anouschka in Product Reviews, Reviews | 1 Comment

I’ve just received the latest fragrance by BVLGARI – the 6th perfume in the Omnia for women series. Omnia in the Urban dictionary refers a scale used to describe sheer perfection. Ranging from 1 to Omnia. Omnia being the highest.  This perfume was inspired by one of the most unique gems on earth, the radiant Paraiba Tourmaline of Brazil, which is blue-green in colour.   BVLGARI Omnia Paraiba was developed by perfumer Alberto Morillas. It features notes of Laraha orange, passion fruit and flower, gardenia, sugar cane, vetiver and cacao bean.    It is quite sweet (orange) but not over overpoweringly so. The passion fruit flower also comes through quite strongly.  Omnia Paraiba is a sophisticated warm, sweet fragrance, and makes me yearn for a Summer evening on a beach in Brazil.

I love the feeling you get when you walk out of a salon after having your hair done. No matter how ‘ugh’ you might be feeling, when your hair looks good, you just feel infinitely better.   I was lucky enough to be pampered at Style Bar again and discovered a few new products that blew me away.   Firstly, the Nioxin range was used to wash, condition and treat my hair after my highlights. They have some lovely new styling products, which I haven’t tried yet, however, the in salon Intensive Treatment they used is amazing. My hair feels so light and soft and manageable. Really impressed.   And then, Kathi, let me smell some of their Nak products which smell so frikkin awesome, I want it as a perfume. The Aromas Range contains lavender, patchouli and geranium and all their products are sulphate free, paraben free and vegan friendly.  Read More

How To Drink 2 Litres of Water A Day

How To Drink 2 Litres Of Water A Day Yes, I agree that this is quite a weird headline. Duh, you just open your mouth and pour in some water, right?   Well I’ve been struggling to drink 2 litres of water every day for a few years now. Not because I don’t like water (I actually love it!) but because I always forget. Suddenly it’s ‘wine o’clock’ and I realise that I haven’t even come close to drinking all the water I need, and if I start chugging it back now, I’ll be peeing all night.    So, I decided to become serious about my water intake and start scheduling when to drink, and finally I seem to have mastered the art.   So here’s how I manage to stay hydrated every day.   First you need to choose a nice big glass for home and a great bottle forRead More

The newest range from CATRICE includes favourites in the latest Pantone colours – Rose Quartz and Serenity.   I’m an absolute fan of the CATRICE Fluid lipstick, and I definitely need to get my hands on this shade of lip pencil. At these prices I’m going to add the Hidden & Forbidden Rose Nude nail polish as well as the La Vie En Rose Illuminiating Blush. Happy shopping everyone! I find that these new products always seem to fly off the shelves, especially at Dischem, but I see that Takealot.com now also stocks CATRICE.  Which products would express your mood and attitude through beauty with the Pantone Color of the Year and CATRICE cosmetics?   CATRICE Cosmetics is available in Dis-Chem, Takealot.com and selected Red Square and Pick n Pay stores.
