Early 2000s was the era of tracksuits with celeb stars like Paris Hilton and Kimora Lee Simmons seen rocking the fashion trend. The style has officially made a comeback as athleisure-wear with fashionistas wearing sweatpants and tracksuits at many occasions making it the new streetwear chic. Personally if I could, I would totally be wearing a pair joggers or tracksuit pants everyday! They are the ultimate answer to comfortability.
My current favourite tracksuit that I’ll probably be seen in this entire winter season is from Mr. Price. I was particularly drawn to this tracksuit by its colour and wide arm design on the tracksuit top. The tracksuit is from the Project collection that was recently launched by Mr. Price and it features a collection of fun, sporty and casual items.

It has been a refreshing and loving skin relationship with my beloved Celltone products for the past month or so.

While it is still Summer in the beautiful city that is Cape Town, I plan to make the most of it and soak up the delicious sunshine. And what better way to strut the streets of Cape Town, but in a chic slip dress. The uniquely designed slip dress from Phoebe&Knox has definitely become one my favourite dresses at the moment. The dress is such a great fit, with material that is so comforting to the body.
When it does get too hot this is when we thank the heavens for the modern day style of slip dresses. Just to clarify for those who may not be 100% sure, slip dresses were originally worn as an under clothing garment to prevent the showing of intimate garments. However, now days most skirts and dresses come with lining underneath that it is not necessary for a person to wear a silky slip dress underneath their clothes. Instead it has now become norm for us to rock the dresses as a fashion expression.
Often we are so concerned about keeping our skin, hair and body looking top shape, that we may forget that our hands and nails need the exact same tender, loving, care. Your hands and nails need to be taken care of at all times, especially because you do everything with your hands.
Since you can’t avoid the fact that people will see your hands whether you like it or not, here are some important and great nail care tips to help you take good care of your hands and nails.
Every year the ‘black girl magic’ just keeps getting better and undoubtedly noticeably. There have been so many ‘wow, it feels good to be a black woman’ moments, although there are still many hurdles to overcome, it is just wonderful seeing black girls and women occupying more spaces than before.
Some of my favourite black girl moments included the release of visuals for ‘Lemonade’ and ‘A seat at the table’ which extruded of some many black pride moments, glorifying the beauty that is black people. While in fashion Lupita Nyong’o and Michelle Obama looked ever so graceful and mesmerising on their individual Vogue covers. And most recently I was ecstatic to hear about Issa Rae receiving a Golden Globe for the relatable and quirky television series, ‘Insecure.’ My goodness there were just so many more black women success moments in 2016, but these are just the few that stood out for me.
To celebrate my one year ‘blog-versary’ and also because it is the season of giving, I have decided to do a giveaway to say thank you to all you amazing people who have supported my blog thus far. One lucky person will get the chance to walk away with two gorgeous matte lip liquid colours from The Body Shop.
I started blogging with the intention of improving my fashion and beauty writing skills. I did not expect to have a following of people who would actually enjoy what I was writing. The words of encouragement and support has kept me going throughout the whole year. The emails, DMs and messages that I have received during the year have warmed my heart dearly and pushed me to keep doing what I’m doing. I have met some amazing bloggers, worked with talented photographers and had some great writing and guest blogging opportunities.
I really love and admire each and every one of you who take the time out of your day to read and follow my blog, it really means a lot to me. The giveaway includes two brand new gorgeous matte lipsticks in the colours Windsor Rose 032 (the nude) and Sicily Iris 09 (the deep purple). I chose these colours, because I think the colours will suit almost any skin tone and are lovely festive colours to rock this holiday season.
We all love maxi dresses for the warm, summer days they are super comfortable and girly. However, midi dresses are just as great for the summer breeze and can work with almost anything in one’s closet. Midi dresses can be styled in numerous ways to create a super stylish and effortless look or a casual and timeless look. As a summer trend midi dresses are rather under-appreciated, but are definitely your BFF wardrobe item this summer.
As Summer begins to approach in South Africa it means bright and bold lips will be making a seasonal comeback. It is the season that allows one to rock the sassiest lip colours and make a statement. After visiting The Body Shop I came across the most show-stopping and mesmerising matte lip colours that I can’t wait to rock during the Summer.
I’ve always been a fan of The Body Shop and their makeup, because of the cruelty free policy and how it treats my skin so well. The skincare store has recently launched its first matte lip liquid colours. The range includes 12 bright shades with each shade having a rich creamy colour.
Summer has always been my favourite season followed closely by Spring. I just love how everything starts looking more alive as the days get warmer during this time of year from the makeup to the clothes. Trends are so much more fun to follow in Summer with everyone adding their own sense of unique style to a particular fashion trend i.e. the off-the-shoulder.
One of the biggest Spring/Summer trends that has undoubtedly made a mark in the fashion space is the off-the-shoulder style. This trend comes in some many styles either as a shirt, crop top, dress or jumpsuit you pick your choice of style. It has quickly become a definite fashion favourite for most fashionistas and stylists. I have even purchased quite a few cute and sexy off-the-shoulder items that I absolutely can’t wait to rock this coming Summer.

Earrings – Lovisa | Watch – Marc by Marc Jacobs
Taking care of your face is a beauty skill that should come naturally. As we get older simply using water and soap is not adequate enough to maintain your face’s flawless look. With age it has become extremely important to cleanse, exfoliate and moisturise the face.
And with Summer just around the corner having a natural, dewy and glowy skin is the new beauty look of the season. I recently tried out some face masks from Clicks and I must say these are going to be my favourite products for the Summer and all year long. I doubt I’ll be using facial sheet masks anymore because the result is obviously not the same.
