My Top 5 Blog Addictions

Hi everyone! What’s better to survive the rest of the week than to share with you my current favourite blog addictions – top 5 blogs I’m obsessed with right now! I like to read a little about everything, whether it’s cooking, beauty, fashion and/ or traveling, not only am I learning something new everyday but I’m finding all sorts of inspiration from around the world. Nowadays I’m finding myself doing more reading than actual writing, but everyone needs a little break right? 🙂 These are in no particular order:


1. Minimalist Baker 

One of the coolest new discoveries I made, I’m not even sure how I came across it to be honest. It’s essentially a food blog by Dana who create amazing and simple recipes that’s either 10 ingredients or less, one bowl or 30min or less. The best thing is that she creates the best gluten free and vegan recipes that are delicious and simple, plus her photos are the best! I would definitely check it out for some healthy, fun recipes that are easy to follow.


2. Grease and Glamour 

A travel and lifestyle blog by Jinna who created the blog following the death of her father, who was her biggest motivation in life. She decided to quit her full time job in NYC and follow her dreams and passions, which lead her to the most amazing destinations on this planet. Follow her for inspiration and amazing travel photos plus awesome travel tips!


3. Kayture 

Do I even need to give you an introduction? Kristina Bazan is one of the biggest fashion voices on Earth right now, she’s pretty much everywhere and to think she was just an ordinary Swiss girl doing her thing a couple years back. Clearly she’s doing something right! She’s beautiful and her photos are amazing! Check out her blog for some amazing outfit inspirations.


4. Sprouted Kitchen 

Another great food blog with delicious and simple recipes to follow. I love that Sara uses a lot of natural ingredients, her recipes are heathy, wholesome and her photos are absolutely beautiful. I’m no vegetarian or vegan but she sure has some of the best vegetarian recipes that are to die for!


5. The Chriselle Factor 

A fashion and lifestyle blog by Chriselle, she has amazing fashion and styling tips to hand out that goes along with some really impressive photos. I love that she creates such simple and elegant outfit looks, which is very inspiring for me as a blogger myself. Definitely check her out if you enjoy the classic, simple and elegant side of fashion.

Now with that being in the open, I hope this not only get you reading and exploring other blogs out there but it may also inspire you to start a blog yourself! 🙂 Whether you’re a reader or a blogger, you need a laptop to do your business, which is why Gumtree has created a special tool to help those who are looking to sell or buy a laptop – The Laptop Price Checker. It’s basically a nifty tool which lets you narrow down your laptop brand and model to check the price that is currently selling for online. Whether you’re looking for an Apple or an HP, Gumtree provides for it all! So if you’re looking for a laptop to either read your favourite blogs or to start your own, definitely check it out!

Lookbook: When It Rains

Happy Monday! Hope you all had a great relaxing weekend and ready to take on the week! The greatest thing 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  (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. 🙂 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: 

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! 🙂 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.
