August 2015 Empties

Hello everyone! As you may know, I’ve been moving for the last couple of weeks and till now, we still don’t have internet at home. Telkom is coming tomorrow to set up our internet and to move our line – yay!! 🙂 I must tell you it has been absolute torture not having wifi at home, Snapchat is just not the same and not only that, I could barely browse any social media apps via my phone because I’ve bought data bundles of 1GB twice already! Absolutely ridiculous! Hopefully I’ll be able to shoot some lookbooks for you this weekend, which will be up next week, not promising anything though but thank you all for your patience and I’m really glad that you guys are enjoying my snaps too, I really enjoy snapping, it makes running errands less “lonely”.

I haven’t done Empties posts in so long now, mainly because I really haven’t finished any products as of late but towards the end of July and this month, I’ve managed to finish a few products that you will see below.

 

If you’ve been reading my blog for a while, you’ll know what I cannot live without my Fix+ by MAC, I use before and after I apply my makeup. I’m currently using the Charged Water by MAC which is similar to the Fix+ except it claims to have more minerals and better for hydrating dry skin. I finished another bottle of the Benefit Total Moisture Facial Cream, I’ve been using this cream for years and I used to buy them overseas when Benefit was no longer available in SA. This moisturiser is so rich and perfect for my dry skin. I finished my first tube of Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Concealer, I got this in New York last year October. I’m not sure if I’m riding on the rave train for this concealer because it does crease a little on me, but it is a great drugstore under-eye concealer.

 

I finished a tube of this Prep + Prime lash serum by MAC. I’m pretty sure most people don’t even know that this product even exist because no one really promotes it when you visit a MAC store. I’ve used it for a good few months, can’t say I’ve noticed a visible growth in terms of my lashes but it does make me feel a little better that I am apply some form of nutrient to it before I go to bed at night. I absolutely love the Creme Sheen glosses by MAC, this one I finished is in Just Superb, very flattering on all skin tones, it may look super light but it looks great worn on its own or over a lipstick. This is currently my favourite MAC mascara, it’s the Extreme Dimensions mascara, I’ve blogged about it before. I love the big brush applicator that comes with it and the formulae is great for lengthening your lashes.

 

I finished a Maybelline and a Kat Von D eyeliner, they are both brush tip (I only like using brush tip liners) and very pigmented. I’ve bought backups of them both when I go overseas so I still have enough to last me another year! 🙂

 

I know this is not a beauty product but I have to talk about it because I’m so obsessed with Yankee Candles right now! The Champaca Blossom candle was amazing and the scent is really carried throughout your home if you’re burning this candle. I haven’t bought another because I like to try new fragrances when it comes to candles but definitely try this out if you’re looking for a great fragrant candle.

Hope you enjoyed my empties post! Remember to go like my Facebook Page 🙂

Happy Monday my loves! Hope everyone had a great weekend! I personally had quite a stressful and exciting week last week, which I will address later on my blog in another blog post.

I have a pretty busy February ahead, I figured that I should give you all a heads up just in case I go quiet again. I’m currently in Durban to see my parents and for the first time in 2 years I’ll be spending 2 whole, consecutive weeks with my family! I’m extremely excited about that because if you’ve been following my blog and social media for some time, you will know that I only take leave if and when I plan an overseas trip. Then on Valentines Day I’ll be flying over to Cape Town to meet E where he has a surprise planned for us that day. 😀 Yes I am literally saying “eeeeeeeeeeeeeek” as I type this and I have goosebumps all over because last year for Valentines Day, I remember saying that I wished that I could fly to Cape Town for that day and eat at my favourite restaurant – Nobu. This is a dream come true this year and I shall update everyone when it comes. Then I’ll be staying in Cape Town till 23rd Feb, then I’ll be making my way back home, to JHB.

During that time I’m away I’ll try squeeze in as many posts as I can and just give everyone a quick update on what I’m up to. Which reminds me, I’m still to do a quick post on the past weekend in Cape Town. We didn’t take the camera, which is a bummer but I still managed to capture some photos with my phone (oh well!).

I’m absolutely in love with this sheer, lacey, floral kaftan cross cardi… It’s so feminine and versatile. Hope you enjoy the photos!

Lookbook: The Casual Work Shirt

Hi my loves! Hope everyone had a great weekend! I must apologise for dropping off the face of the Earth last week, I was extremely busy with admin (getting admitted and all that stuff) plus there was major mess-ups in the process so that’s where it left me. I also went away for the weekend, I conveniently made my normal weekend into a long weekend, I took Friday and Monday off. It was a friend’s wedding so we flew to Cape Town and spent time both in Cape Town and also Hermanus, which is where the wedding actually took place.

I took these pictures last week but never had time to actually post it up. If you remember, my last post was dressing the same shirt up and turning it into a work or corporate shirt. This time, I wanted to show you just how versatile this shirt can really be, I’m wearing it here with torn jeans and sneakers, super casual!
