Hello Apple Watch 2015

Brace yourselves because the Apple Watch was officially launched yesterday! Personally, I’m an Apple fan, from iPhone to iPads to iMac to Macbook Pro… yes! I’m obsessed to say the least, can you imagine my excitement when Apple announced the launch of the Apple Watch?! 🙂

There are 3 distinctive collections: The Watch, Watch Sport and Watch Edition. Take a look at the images below to satisfy your curiosity. Whats the difference you may ask? Take a look below:





The Watch: The collection is made with stainless steal and black casing, the screen is protected by safari crystal (yes!) and there are many different straps to choose from. You can choose from leather to stainless steel links.

Watch Sport: This collection is made from lightweight aluminium in silver and space grey, the screen is protected by Ion-X Glass which is lightweight and also scratch resistant. The collection comes with matching lumo bands in 5 different colours. Complete style to the active and sporty.

Watch Edition: This collection is of course the top of the range, the ultimate Apple Watch, there are 6 elegant expressions in the collection and each is crafted with 18-karat gold (yes you read right), but it’s no ordinary gold, it has been developed to be twice as hard as standard gold. The collection is sleek in design and will be no stranger to the stylish, wealthy and the famous.



So exactly, what else does it do besides from being able to tell time? You can send and receives messages, calls and emails, this of course is standard. There’s a new function called “Sketch” which allows you to draw something with your finger on your screen and your friend on the other end will be able to watch your drawing and respond! How neat! 🙂 There’s another function called “Tap” which allows you to tap on your screen when you’re thinking of a loved one, your loved one on the other end will be able to feel your tap silently, you can even customise your taps for different people. Ok ok, if that was not enough for you, there’s a function called “Heartbeat” which allows you to record and send your heartbeat to a loved one when you press 2 fingers onto the screen, the heart rate sensor will monitor and record your heart rate then send it off to a loved one.


The face of the watch comes in 2 sizes, the slightly larger one is 42mm and the smaller one is 38mm. Not a huge difference but it will definitely cater for those will smaller wrists (like me!).


The Apple Watch is available for pre-order on 10 April 2015 and will start shipping on 24 April 2015. On 24 April 2015, the Apple Watch will be available in the following 9 countries:

  • Australia
  • Canada
  • China
  • France
  • Germany
  • Hong Kong
  • Japan
  • UK
  • USA

(Sorry South Africa, we’re so used to being the bottom of the list by now. We’ll just have to get ours from one of the countries listed above)


Now there have been much controversy surrounding the prices of the beautiful wrist pieces as there is a huge gap between the starting price and the high-end price. This all depends on what metal the watch is made from. You can get your hands on an Apple Watch from $349 (starting price) and this can go all the way up to a whopping $17 000!

I am super excited to get my hands on the Apple Watch and hope I’ve managed to get you excited too! For more information and pictures, visit the apple website by clicking here.

Favourite Looks by Gavin Rajah MBFW15

Hi everyone! Happy Monday! The weekend has come and gone leaving us with sweet distant memories of the weekend, I used to wake up thinking “where did the weekend go?!” (I still do sometimes). As many of you may know, MBFW came and gone this past week too, going to Melrose Arch was like walking through the streets of New York again buzzing with the young and daring. There were some interesting pieces (interesting to say the least) but then again, you don’t dress the usual when you go to Fashion Week, that’s kind of a rule.

I was privileged to attend the Gavin Rajah show, which took place on Friday, thank you to the MAC Cosmetics family! Of course we took ridiculous amount of pictures but here I would like to show you my favourite Gavin Rajah Resort runway looks this coming season. The collection is very beautiful, with feminine designs and voluminous fabrics that drapes the models’ bodies. It takes you to paradise from beginning to end.
















Hope you enjoyed it as much as I did! Of course attending Fashion Week isn’t the same without backstage photos, so watch this space!

With love…xxx

LoveMaryLu Valentines Wishlist 2015

With 8 more days till our favourite “holiday”, I thought it would be a perfect opportunity to write up a wishlist again! By now, you probably already know how I feel about wish lists, there are just too many beautiful things in this world that I constantly crave for. I have an enormous appetite for luxury and non-luxury items of all scents and colours but when I don’t want or like something, you will know because I will always tell you so.

With Valentines Day around the corner (please don’t hate me singletons, take it as a gift idea to treat yourself or your mom if you must), here is my Valentines Wishlist 2015. Valentines has always been one of my favourite “holidays” although it’s not an official holiday but I’ve always found it to be rather delightful. Just an excuse to spoil your loved one and make it something special, a better excuse to put on something cute and sexy really and to wear my favourite colour with no shame – pink! 🙂


In order from left to right, from top to bottom, here is my wishlist this year:

1. Lorna Jane 

I really don’t mind getting gym clothes for any occasion, it’s romantic if it pink!

2. Tiffany & Co Hearts earrings

The collection is “Hearts” which I think is very appropriate for the occasion, a diamond is a girl’s best friend.

3. Moet et Chandon

No one can ever say no to bubbly, especially when it’s extra sweet and delicious.

4. Valentino Valentina Eau de Parfum 

It’s not a Valentines wish list without a Valentino. With the perfect amount of sweetness and floral notes, this fragrance is no short of “I love you” this Valentines Day.

5. Clarins Perfect Eyes and Brows Palette

With a sleek, gold packaging, dynamite truly do come in small packages. Say hello to beautiful eyes and groomed brows.

6. Louis Vuitton Monogram Shawl 

If you’ve been following me for a while, you know that a wish list isn’t complete without a Louis. I’ve swapped the typical bag for a shawl this time. Mixed with the perfect amount of silk and wool, this will not only keep you warm at night but will keep you in the centre of envy.

Hope you enjoyed this short and sweet Valentines Wish List!

With love…xxx
