OOTD: The Snug Life with Trenery

Hello World. It’s time to break out an OOTD (Outfit of the Day) post, its been long enough.

A month ago Woolworths had their annual sale & did I score big time. I picked up a few jumpers from Trenery  at 75% off. I find this outfit works well when its the end of the week, you mostly office bound and have to power through all the admin you put off during the week.

I paired the jumper with tights and velcro strap metallic sneakers from Studio W in this OOTD post. With the days getting a bit colder I feel this is going to become a firm favorite for casual Friday’s as its super comfortable and laid back.

Monday Must Have : Empties Post

Hello World and Happy Monday! It’s time to Break Out a Monday Must Have post featuring my empties.

I’ve blogged about most of these products and since I never make it through products and repurchase those products , I’m happy to announce most of these products have been repurchased besides the mascara.

First up we have my all time favorite setting spray the Woolworths Face Make up setting spray, you can read my review here. This was my saving grace in Bali.

As an eczema sufferer I have to be careful with the products I use . This Shezen body cream was a saving grace when nothing else would ease the itch ( not pictured). You can read my review here. I have since found other uses for it like removing my matte lipsticks and using it as a creme on extremely dry spots.

The Essence ‘Get big lashes ‘ mascara is another firm favorite. This is the only product I have not repurchased as I’ve heard so many good things about the Essence Lash Princess that I will be purchasing that first. You can read my review on the Essence ‘ Get big Lashes’ here.

The Benefit Watt’s Up Highlighter gives you that subtle sun kissed glow and is really buildable. You can read more here.

The Woolworths Face Longwear Max Cover Foundation in Hazelnut was a good find . I found it a bit light coverage but buildable. It was really good on my dry skin and lasted all day.

The Mac Smoked Purple Matte and Retro Matte Liquid Lipstick in Feels so Grand  are my other favorites . The colour of the Smoked Purple is such a strikingly beautiful dark lippie and the Retro Matte Liquid Lipstick in Feels so Grand is the best Red I have ever worn.

Thank you for reading lovelies. Please remember to share your dupes with me .

WSWB:Networking event

Hello World . It’s time to break out a Women supporting Women in Business post(WSWB). This feature on the blog is an initiative close to my heart. I use this feature to highlight powerhouses who are out here doing the most.

This inspired me to pilot an event for The Cancer Association of South Africa (CANSA) called Women in Business Cuppa for CANSA recently. The concept was to invite women business owners, bloggers, beauty enthusiasts & aspiring business owners to get together over a Cuppa for Cansa. The event starts with guest speakers who address a variety of topics but also share advice and tips with us about what makes them successful in business.The floor is then opened to the guests to either market their business, share their stories or pose a question to the panel. The guest speakers are invited to exhibit their company, product or service and at the end of the event guests are encouraged to network and get to know each other .

My aim with these events is to create a network of women who can stand for each other, who can support each other & share blueprints so that we don’t reinvent the wheel just perfect it.

Monday Must Have’s: The Burgundy Bar

Hello World! Easter Monday is the best Monday and its time to break out a Monday must have post. This time featuring favourite drugstore brand and owner of  the infamous”Maybe shes’s born with it , maybe its Maybelinne” tagline.

I received The Burgundy Bar from a very kind friend and thought I would practise my cut crease.

IMG-20180424-WA0012

This palette is the perfect Autumn palette. With 12 shades which ranges from ultra matte to champaigne metallic shades. I found the shades pigmented with little fallout. I like to use my setting spray with metallic shades to create a more intense and pigmented look and once again it didn’t let me down.When applying the product it went on smooth and I found it blendable.

While doing the cut crease the lightest shade in the palette set the concealer I used, perfectly. I was super impressed by this as I have tried other lighter shades in other palettes before and did not get the result I wanted.

IMG-20180401-WA0002.jpg

What I have found is that I need to cut my crease much higher as I have hooded eyes.

 

IMG-20180402-WA0000

I recommend this product if you are looking for a palette that’s easy to work with. When it comes to pricing it’s not the cheapest palette for a drug store brand, retailing at R260.00 \21 USD\ 15 GPB but the colours & quality more than make up for it.

Happy Easter Monday all. Let me know if this is a yay or nay for you. With all my love.
