L'OCCITANE - Introducing Light & Nourishing Shea Whipped Collection

Hi guys ! Hope you are having a great week !

Today I'm sharing another AWESOME new & limited edition collection from L'OCCITANE .

"In Burkina Faso, during one of the steps in the production of shea butter, the women whip the paste and obtain a mousse-like texture that is both soft and light. It was this that inspired the L’OCCITANE Laboratory to create Whipped Shea Butter – an innovative combination of maximum nourishment and a light, whipped texture. In the year that L’Occitane celebrates 25 years of using fair trade Shea Butter from women’s co-operatives in Burkina Faso, discover a new limited edition body care range. An exceptional shea butter formulation keeps this new texture as rich and nourishing as ever, while as soft and light as whipped egg whites. There couldn’t be a more delicious way to nourish dry skin."

So onto the products -

Sorbet - 12 Shades of Summer

Hi guys ! Hope you are well and had a great weekend.

Today I'm sharing the Sorbet 12 shades of Summer set with you guys. I got this lovely set as a Christmas prezzie . All these polishes are now also available in full sizes at Clicks stores.  (Most still have this nifty little set too ! ) 

So let's get onto the shades - 

Sorbet - Check Mate
Check Mate is a gorgeous chocolate brown polish. I used 2 coats in the swatch above.

Sorbet - Flash Me
Okay , I have to be honest here, this colour is not me. But it's a gorgeous pastel orange with a golden shimmer. I used 1 coat in the swatch above. 

Sorbet - Blush 
This is the most gorgeous natural super light pink polish. This is perfect for a french mani or if you don't like colour on your nails. I can see myself reaching for this shade over and over again. I used 2 coats in the swatch above. 

Please note that this polish isn't opaque.

Sorbet - Melting Moments
As I mentioned in THIS post, I love this colour sooo much . I have worn this…

Guest Post - {Tried & True} ♥ Skin Republic Foot Rescue

Hi guys ! Hope you had a great week . It's finally FRIDAY ! HOORAY !

Today I have a guest post from a lovely fellow  South African & Bahrainblogger (and all round super sweet lady ! ) Martie from Living Lightley . (If you are not following her already , I'll leave all her social media links at the end. :)

So a couple of weeks ago Lynette from Pink & Purple Dots asked me if I would be down for doing a Guest Blog Post for her, and of course I immediately said yes. 

I have been following her blog for quite a while now, and I am one of her biggest fans for sure. 

I was playing around with some ideas of doing some nail polish swatches for this post, but then I decided to go with something totally different and do a mini review on something for the Feet… (PLUS, let’s face it, I have not yet mastered the art of doing swatches and taking photos of my hands that looks kind of OK-ish… Any tips here ladies?) *giggles out loud*

I bought this Skin Republic Foot Res…

Make an Impression this Valentine's Day with GOSH

Hi guys. Happy Friday ! 

Today I'm sharing some GOSH cosmetics I received this week to help you get a Valentine's Day look. I received 4 products and I'm sharing them with you today.

GOSH Forever Metallic Eyeshadow Stick (R139 ) - Silver Rose
This is such a gorgeous colour. I didn't use any eyeshadow primer, and this colour lasted the whole day. This is a very creamy and soft easy to apply eyeshadow stick, and has a waterproof formula. The shade Silver Rose is such a gorgeous colour, I didn't feel the need to use any other eyeshadow , this is PERFECT on it's own. Available in 8 shades. 

GOSH Waterproof Volume Mascara (R130 )
So it's no secret - My favourite type of mascara is ANY waterproof mascara. This mascara provides you with a smudge-free look all day long (which is a bonus because I touch my eyes so much during the day ). The super sculpting rubber brush adds dramatic volume, lenght and definition without clumping or flaking.

GOSH Velvet Touch Waterproof Li…

Nails Inc - Porchester Square & Notting Hill Gate

Hi guys ! Hope your having a great week. 

Today I'm sharing two gorgeous Nails Inc polishes with you guys. As you know - I'm already a huge fan of Nails Inc polishes. The formula is always amazing . The polish also lasts quite well before chipping, a good 4/5 days . 

Nails Inc Porchester Square -
If I had to pick a - You can only wear one colour on your nails for the rest of your life - This would definitely be the colour for me. The formula is butter and opaque in two coats (Although if you use thicker coats, one would be enough ) , and super glossy. 

Nails Inc Notting Hill Gate - This is a BRIGHT neon pink jelly polish. While I'm not a huge fan of neon nail polishes in general , I REALLY liked this one. It's bright screams summer. Again, no issues with the formula of the polish , it was super glossy . I used three coats in the photo. 
Nails Inc is exclusively available at selected Edgars and Red Square stores, as well as online and these retail for R115 each.
Which one did …
