I had the privilege of being invited to the Jason Kieck Desert Nights Charity Couture and Gala Dinner on the 28th of September (see previous blog post) and OMG! I honestly cannot tell you what I was expecting exactly, but it surely wasn’t what I experienced.   I haven’t had such a memorable night in a long time, and I honestly needed it. All I knew about the night was that money was going to be raised for charity and a good time was going to be had while doing so. And boy oh boy was a good time had!…

Summer is here!! Well, almost, let me not get ahead of myself and let these past couple of days of warm weather get to my head. I can’t wait though, I love cold cuddle-weather, but I am just about ready to pull out the shorts and tank tops from the back of my closet now and play in the sun.   You know how they say summer bodies are made in winter?

Foundation and lip products are often the very first things I try out when testing out a new beauty brand, so I was super excited when presented with the opportunity to try out the Avon True Power Stay 24hr Foundation and Avon True Power Stay 16hr Lip Colour. With 15 shades to choose from, Avon’s Power Stay foundation promises a long-wear, waterproof matte finish that provides all-day coverage and needs no touch-ups. I put this foundation to the ultimate test the first day I wore it out to the gender-based violence march I attended last week. I was pleasantly surprised…

We all know by now (or at least we should) that October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month (BCAM). A month marked across countries all over the world to help increase attention and awareness of the disease. It is a month that reflects an international drive by public and private healthcare structures to raise awareness of this debilitating disease across all races and class structures.   Thanks to there being a dedicated month where we talk about breast cancer in depth, most of us are aware of what breast cancer is, recommended early detection strategies, diagnosis, treatment options, long-term programs and…
