It’s a Grey Matter: The Dos and Donts of Athleisure

Athleisure is the latest fashion trend that is taking over the world and is easily become a crowd favourite for all fashion lovers. It is a fun, fashionable and comfortable style to rock and play around with as a casual look. The style athleisure is all about transforming activewear clothing into everyday outfits that are perfect for the office, lunch dates or for running errands.

I am not really a girl who follows trend, but some trends are undeniably hard not to follow especially when they fit perfectly with my everyday life. I can’t stop wearing my grey two-piece that was a gift from my father while he was on a business trip in China. The shorts are so comfortable to work out in and as soon as I’m done with my daily workout, I simply throw on the top and the look is performance wear ready for the day ahead. To make the look more fashionable I pair it up with a leather jacket and a simple watch, I don’t think there is a need to over accessorise with this type of style.

5 Items You Should Carry In Your Handbag

Deciding what to carry around with you in your daily bag can be one of the most difficult decisions you have to make. To be honest you’ve probably convinced yourself that everything is important from the two pairs of sunglasses to the extra pair of earphones when you only need one pair of everything, because in reality you don’t need all that extra weight in your handbag.

I am guilty of this behave as well, but I seem to be getting better, the more I learn about what I need and don’t need. I thought I would share with you some items I think you should carry so that you have a lighter and more convenient handbag. You should focus on carrying daily essentials which you’ll probably use on an everyday basis.

DIY: Makeup Setting Spray

You know when you apply your makeup and it is just on point, but then you don’t have setting spray to keep that radiant look throughout the day. Well I decided to make my own makeup setting spray, so I can save money to buy more makeup. I did this by reading different articles and researching what works best and what doesn’t. I finally found a method that I think works well which I’ll be using for as long as I am wearing makeup.

The secret ingredients are just roses and glycerine, I have been using my home-made makeup setting spray for about two weeks now and I must say it works like any other setting spray. I was rather impressed with the results because my makeup did last for a while on my face. So I have decided to share this newly home-made, life-changing DIY with all you beautiful people. Even if you don’t wear makeup on the regular, you can use the spray as a mist to keep your face hydrated in all seasons.

Ingredients

  1. One rose ( preferably from a garden.)
  2. Water.
  3. *Glycerine
  4. A spray bottle.

*For my South African readers you can find glycerine at Clicks stores for only R15.95 and you can use glycerine for almost anything, this little bottle is pretty magical.
