Thank you for stopping by again. So I thought it would be cool to share some of my faves from the past winter season as we in SA are jumping into Spring but most of you my readers are only getting the chills 🙂
So I’m gonna break up the post to cover beauty,hair,fashion and lifestyle faces as the blog is all about all these things. Alrighty then let’s jump right into it.
So I went ahead and coloured my hair for a daring change! This meant lots of care and moisture should go with the colour to prevent any breakage. I am totally in love with these oils in doing just that and I’m gonna stick to using them religiously till further notice
You can buy both the Amla Legend Oil of S 7 Wonders and the #easywaves coconut oil at Dischem and Clicks Pharmacies.
BODY and BEAUTY
I recently got introduced to a wonderful South African company called Inuka Fragrances and they manufacture perfumes and body care products inspired by high end names like Dolce & Gabbana, Issey Miyake, Chanel and the list justcgoes on. So I tried their products and was pleasantly surprised at how accurate they were with the sents. I have been using their Marc Jacobs Daisy fragrance and body lotion. The lotion is thick and creamy and it totally busted my otherwise ashy dry skin.
I have been loving orange lipstick for the winter for some reason, and have constantly been drawn to this Yardley Supermoist Lipstick in the shade Coral Sensation and love the colour it breathed to my looks.
I went into Clicks and saw these TLC brand wipes and they promised to be a triple threat cleanser, toner and moisturizer when used. So after a long day with a full made up face I was ready to put them to the test. I wiped my face clean and didn’t moisturize and I’m glad to say I woke up with a perfectly moisturized face in the morning. Next time you see them on the beauty aisle be sure to pick them up…but I’m all for moisturizing so use your night cream.
Elizabeth Arden was kind enough to gift me with a hamper that contained their ceramics mascara which has treating benefits for lash strength..and I’m a happy girl.
Now its easy to be left with sallow looking skin in winter just because of the dry air. I used this Accessorize Baked bronzer duo in the shade Pearl Sands Shade 1 to keep that sunkissed glow on my cheeks even during the winter. So glowy 🙂
Fuzzy sweaters are just too adorable to pass up. I was so happy with how they were so versatile in that they are both lightweight but warm enough to keep the chills out. I layered these for both casual and formal looks and they literally go with anything.
Next on my winter style list were ankle booties. These 2 were my faces because they are neutral colours and went with almost anything in my closet.
Last but definitely not the least is water. Yes its cold and yes you might think you are not loosing water that much cause you are not sweating but that’s not the case. The wind outside is dry and it does take out of you, so before we take care of the outside we must take good care of what goes into our bodies and water is the most important. And if you find plain water boring try the flavoured waters that are all over the internet, they are as healthy as they are yummy to look at and actually enjoy
Let me know on the comments how you deal with the winter season.
As always God bless. Stay chic and beautiful
