Tip Top - Hap-Pea

Hi guys ! Hope you all had a great weekend. Mine was nice and relaxing... Today I am taking Alex to the Day of the Dinosaur expo ... He's so excited to go .

Onto my nails though... Today I'm sharing Tip Top Hap-Pea. This is such an unique colour in my collection ... Seriously such a stunning beauty . This is a dusty green (more minty green than green green colour ) . The polish also applied like butter... Smooth without any streaks. And the name is super adorable too .... the colour does make me happy... Hee hee hee.

Robin Sharma live in Johannesburg in July



Johannesburg, June 24, 2014: 
African Billionaire Events Management (ABEM | www.abem.co.za) is proud to announce that it will be hosting the legendary Robin Sharma (www.robinsharma.co.za) in Johannesburg on July 25, 2014. One of the world’s most influential business thinkers, authors and trainers, Sharma may be best known for his global best-seller The Monk who sold his Ferrari which has been translated into 42 languages. Today, his focus is the enormously popular and effective ‘Lead without a Title’ series in which he demonstrates principles and methodologies for taking complete charge of your own life and work experiences.
This seminar which carries three ticket price points: R499 for Gold Seating, R999 for VIP Seating and R2999 for Platinum Seating, is a must-attend event for anyone who feels the need to take greater charge of their lives, to overcome obstacles to finding new opportunities, or just to understand what their greatest purpose is. 
“We’re genuinely excited about this one. Robin Sharma is like a guru for tens of millions of people around the world, and his 20 years of teaching from The Monk who sold his Ferrari to Lead without a Title have earned him an enviable reputation as a no-nonsense, practical, inspirational and brilliant human being. South African audiences are in for a real treat, but unlike many other speakers, Robin doesn’t just offer a wow factor, but real take-home value as well,” says Mubeen Khan, director at African Billionaire Events Management. 
“It doesn’t really matter who you are, or your path in life, this seminar, led by Robin himself, will teach attendees how to take on bigger challenges, make better decisions and solve more problems,” he says. 

The all-day event takes place at the Sandton Convention Centre – beginning at 09h00 and ending at 16h00 and features an additional guest speaker named Andy Harrington who will share his expertise on becoming an effective communicator and speaker before Robin Sharma hits the stage.
Tickets (from R499.00 upwards) can be purchased via 011 367 0626 www.robinsharma.co.za, via computicket HERE or email sales@abem.co.za.

China Glaze Grape Juice with Accent Nail

Hi guys ! Hope you are all having a great week so far. Mine has been quite busy so far... But luckily it's just downhill to the weekend now... Yippee !! 

Today I'm sharing another gorgeous China Glaze polish with you - China Glaze Grape Juice. China Glaze Grape Juice is a medium soft purple with gorgeous silver flecks in the polish. This is a little bit of an older China Glaze polish ... But boy it's GORGEOUS ! And again.. perfect for winter ( Even though this polish is from an old summer collection.. hee hee hee ) . I paired it up an accent nail of China Glaze Glistening Snow and topped with OPI Servin' Up The Sparkle.

Let me share the mani with you ...

Dermalogica BioSurface Press Event

Hi guys ! Hope you are all having a great week so far, 4 day weeks is seriously such a spoil this time of year. 

Last week Thursday I was lucky enough to be invited to the Dermalogica BioSurface Peel Press Event, where they announced that Dermalogica will be offering a Brand New BioSurface Peel from August . We were all lucky enough to receive a voucher for this treatment as soon as it becomes available here, and I will definitely use it and report back on how it works etc.


The lovely Sonette Donker from Dermalogica had an amazing presentation about the benefits of different types of peels, peels vs exfoliation , therapist vs doctors peels as well as the new range of products used in these peels. 

So onto the definition of a peel - It's a controlled burn of the skin with acid.Your skin care therapist will monitor the whole process to identify how many layers of the peel product they will be using .

This is a great superficial peel with NO down time ! And no peeling skin. 

The peel depends on :
  • How the skin was primed
  • Areas applied
  • Health of the skin
  • Peeling agents
  • Concentration and pH 
  • Number of layers
  • Application techniques
  • How skin was prepped
This treatment will be best in Winter or Spring to minimise the UV exposure. A great UV Sunscreen will also be important as well as a great hydrating moisturiser. This is also a treatment not advised if you have inflamed skin, as the peel will burn . Great home care is also advised. 


I'm really excited to go and try out this treatment .. We were lucky enough to also receive 2 amazing products from their "Ultra Calming Range" - The Dermalogica Barrier Cream (which I have been LOVING the last few days ) and the Super Sensitive Shield SPF30 which I will be reviewing soon too. 

Thanks again to the Dermalogica Team xxx

Some Hot & Happening Products for Youth Day ...

Hi guys ! Hope you all are still enjoying the long weekend and will have a great Youth Day today. 

Today's post I mentioning a few of my favourite "Budget Friendly" products that cater for young and old.
Creighton's Argon Smooth Deep Moisture Shampoo and Conditioner :
This shampoo and conditioner smells AMAZING !! My hair is quite dry from colour and heat styling regularly, and this shampoo and conditioner makes my hair feel silky soft and conditioned. I love that this combo is also super affordable , yet it works wonders on dry hair. 
Essence Colour Flash Mascara :
I love that this is the first coloured mascara that I can actually notice the colour on my eyelashes. This is a fun mascara to add some drama for a night out or a hot date. 
Ralo Cosmetics Diamante Lipstick in Pink Flamingo :
I love how hydrating and pigmented this lipstick is, making it perfect for everyday wear.. The colour (Pink Flamingo) is also super girly . The container of the lipstick with the little diamante features makes this a gorgeous lipstick to take out and put on in public. 

The Essence Kiss Care Love & Glossy Balms :
I love both of these too. The Kiss , Care Love Lip balm is hydrating and perfect for on the go. The Glossy Balms has the most delicious smell ever, and its the perfect size to pop into your pocket. 
Sinful Colours Nail Polish :
I love how these polishes are budget friendly , yet still gorgeous and with a decent formula and colour choices. 
Essence Colour & Go Nail Polishes :
Again, if you love changing nail polish regularly, you will find the Essence Colour & Go Nail polishes perfect. They are REALLY affordable, has a huge range of colours , and the wear time is pretty decent too. 
Maybelline Baby Lips :
I'm pretty sure this is a cult favourite with everyone , the lip balms are perfect and they have one to suit every need you might have. I love the Pink Punch and Blue Hydration one.
Tip Top Nails Nail Polish 
I'm pretty sure it's no secret that I LOVE Tip Top Nail polishes... ALWAYS perfect formula... Great colours and amazing wear time. Again... These polishes are VERY budget friendly too ... This really is PERFECTION in a bottle. 
Jewels & Lace :
Again... if you follow me on Instagram ... I'm sure it's no secret that I love Jewels and Lace Jewellery. My favourite though .. The watches . These are super  affordable and the quality is AMAZING ! Seriously I get so much comments about the watches when I wear them.They recently added some anchor inspired watches too .. with a little anchor charm ... Super adorable ! Will be adding one to my collection soon. If you like to order.. Remember to visit their website : www.jewelsandlace.co.za and use the discount code on my sidebar - Pink15 for 15% off your order.
