{Seasonal Things} My Essence Advent Calendar Day 1-6

Hi guys! Happy Friday! Somehow my post last week never went live ( which was totally my fault - I put in the incorrect day - so my Friday Freebie post will move to next Friday instead. 

As I mentioned in my Advent Calendar post here I always get the Essence Advent Calendar to open up every morning. In our house this is such a fun ritual in December - Alex opens up his Lego City Advent and I have my Essence one. Today I will share with you guys the first 6 products of the calendar - (I see they are still on sale on Takealot - so perhaps if you are thinking about it this will give you an idea what you get ). 

Day 1 - Essence I Love Extreme Mascara Honestly - Essence Mascara is a firm favourite in my books - I love mostly all the mascaras by the brand and this one is no exception. Essence mascaras last a pretty decent time on me too. I have too many mascaras open at this stage - but I'm super excited to use this beauty soon.

{Subscription Service Review & Reveal } November Kids Book Club Book

Hi guys! Happy Wednesday, can you believe it another week and another post from me? In year-end madness? Luckily things are calming down - so I have a bit of time spare to work on some content for the blog. I also have another Freebie that will be going live on Friday - so if you are a mom looking for a printable Festive Freebie - pop back on Friday for that.

As I mentioned here many times before- Alex does read every night before bedtime - this is a strong rule we stick to every night. He loves reading and he often walks around with a fact book or Encyclopedia in his hand reading everyone facts about volcanoes, dinosaurs or the human body.

I love that Kids Book Club send us a cute book, an activity book and a cute bag every month. This month's Halloween bag is SUPER cute too. These bags are awesome if you go shopping to throw in your bag and let the kids help out packing groceries.

So more about the service again if you missed it last time :

{Subscription Service Review & Reveal} Lingerie Letters November Pair

Hi guys! Happy Friday. Wow, two posts from Lynette in one week? This is a new record ! (Laughs in the corner). I have a few hours free so I scheduled out some content for the next few weeks - because for once I have a lot to share.

Today I'm sharing my November Lingerie Letter with you. As always it's another gorgeous pair of lingerie this month - A gorgeous minty coloured thong perfect to spice up the festive season. I have fallen head over heels for this subscription service - I love receiving my pretty pair each month. It's a little treat for me that I really enjoy. 


So what is Lingerie Letters if you are new here? It's a Proudly South African based company that sends you a pretty pair of underwear delivered to your door monthly. Since I decided to treat Alex to a book subscription I wanted to get me something too - and who doesn't love pretty underwear?

The underwear is all locally made and the products locally sourced too (the underwear looks and feels super soft…

Miyo Outstanding Lipgloss Nude Range Review and Swatches of three of the shades

Hi guys! Happy Wednesday. How has your week been? Mine has been crazy busy with year-end craziness - but I'm super excited for the countdown to Christmas this year.

It's no secret how much I love Glamore Cosmetics - their products are cruelty-free and they have the most gorgeous shades. I little while back Gael gifted me one of the gorgeous glosses - and I have bought to more in the range since then. These are all nude-toned shades - and perfect for having in rotation for everyday wear. 

The Oustanding lipglosses have a creamy formula and are enriched with caring argon oil. These lipglosses are super comfortable on the lips (and I love how they are so nourishing - as I prefer a shinier nourishing product for summer )- this doesn't bunch up and get weird and gloopy and looks youthful and glowy. 

Now I totally get - lip glosses aren't for everyone. But these beauties are truly magical. Not only do they look amazing on the lips, have such an amazing pigmented finish - they l…

{Seasonal Things} My Favourite Christmas 2019 Advent Calendars

Hi guys ! Happy Friday ! Hope you had a great week so far. Mine has been crazy busy and year end madness is a real thing I tell you. I decided to start a mini series on the blog called SEASONAL THINGS - where I will share some fun gift ideas as I find them - cute decorations as well as anything seasonal. 
One of my personal favourites during the Festive Season is the trusty Advent Calendar. If you follow me on Social Media the last few year you will know every year I get a beauty Advent Calendar and unbox it daily on Instagram / Twitter and Facebook . This year will be no different - but I will show you some other good ones I found in the process . I got my dad and brother and Alex one (I'll share which ones ) and some other good ones that I think is worth looking into. And see it as a way of rewarding yourself for a hard working year - and having to get up and go to work before Christmas leave. I can tell you - an Advent Calendar alone can make your mood 100% better .
