Lookbook: When It Rains

Happy Monday! Hope you all had a great relaxing weekend and ready to take on the week! The greatest thingΒ about Joburg living is that you get to experience all four seasons in one day. I used to think that way about Cape Town when I still lived there but Joburg is just same thing. I remember on Friday last week, I woke up to pouring raining only to get up and see sunshine streaming in through the windows, I was very confused! Friday’s weather was a bit bipolar so I decided that it would only be safe to step out of the house with my Blunt Umbrella. I decided to do something different with the photos since the umbrella is in super bright pink and I was in wearing monotone Β (Monotone Monday?). I had so much fun playing with the umbrella during the shoot, I’m pretty sure you can tell.

I’m not exactly sure why but I feel that on gloomy days, my skin tone looks a bit pasty, maybe it’s just the lighting. πŸ™‚ On another day, keep reading till the end for a giveaway! It’s nothing major but just a little something to show my appreciation for you guys!








What I’m wearing:Β 

Beanie from a store in Taiwan

Pullover from Country Road

Riding pants from Country Road

Slip-ons from Shanghai

Earrings from Forever New

Blunt Umbrella


If you’ve been following me for a while, you may know that I’m obsessed with sheet masks, especially the ones from Asian countries. They are my holy grail products and I absolutely cannot live without them. I use them twice a week and it really does make a difference to my complexion and overall elasticity of my skin. I’m not surprised that all the celebrities are currently raving over them with sheet mask selfies all over social media. I purchased these while I was in Shanghai and I love them! It says it’s “whitening” but don’t be alarmed, it just means that it evens out your skin tone as opposed to actually whitening your skin. There are 6 sheet masks in one box and I’m giving it away to one of my readers! πŸ™‚ Like I said, it’s not something huge but I like to do giveaways every now and again to show my appreciation to my readers.
