The Balm Mary Lou-Manizer is coming to SA! Eeek!

Yes ladies, you read correctly.

Probably THE most talked about highlighter on the web will be hitting SA shores in about two weeks time.

The lovely ladies over at informed me this morning, that they'll be bringing this beauty to SA. So don't finish your Christmas shopping just yet... There's one more item that you want in your Christmas stocking this year.

They'll retail at R650.

Hope you're all smiling now! 

Enjoy your weekend everyone :)

All I want for Christmas, are 14 silly little things... [Part 3]

10. Lindt Bear Milk Chocolate 500g - Available at most grocery stores {R299.95}

I'm one of those people who just have to buy a chocolate bunny on easter. Same goes for Christmas. I'm a dark chocolate lover, but for some reason when milk chocolate are shaped into something holiday themed, I want it. So here I am, wishing for this HUGE chocolate bear. Yes, that's not a typo - 500 grams of deliciousness. I'm gonna have a field day nibbling on his ears.

11. Bourjois Bronzing Powder (Chocolate Bronzer) - Available on {R149.95}

Oh boy! More chocolate. My current bronzer has hit pan, so I need to restock. I've seen quite a few rave reviews for this one, so I figured I'll add it to my wishlist. I only use matte bronzers, as I have oliy skin and don't want to add more shimmer to my face. Matte bronzers are great for contouring too. It also smells like chocolate, so I'll have to be careful, cause I might just try to take a bite. 

12. Essence Gel Nails At Home Kit - Available at Clicks and Dischem {ranges from R50 - R300}

I don't do my nails very often, but when I do, I surely want the paint job to last. With the long showers I usually take, my nail polish only lasts about two days before it starts chipping away. Annoying right? Yup! So I added this kit to my wishlist. Essence claims that it will make your nail polish last up to ten days, which is a whole lot more than my current two. So count me in!

13. BeautyBlender, The Ultimate Makeup Sponge Applicator - {R299.95}

It's a BeautyBlender! I don't think it needs any justification as to why this pink miracle is on my wishlist.

14. Macadamia Deep Repair Masque 250ml - {R389}

This pot of wonder have been raved about by every youtube beauty guru and their mom. My favourite beauty guru aka itsbl0ndie mentioned it in a hair care video, and I've been dying to try this ever since. Then the other day I accidently stumbled upon it on I was under the impression it wasn't even available in SA... Can you imagine the look on my face when I saw it? Priceless! 

Well that's a wrap ladies. Santa, I hope you were taking notes.

Enjoy the rest of your evening everyone

Kisses, L

All I want for Christmas, are 14 silly little things... [Part 2]

5. The Balm Mary-Lou Manizer - Available Online {$24} 

If you haven't heard about this highlighter, you must have been living under a rock. A really big rock. This one has been on the lips of literally every beauty guru and blogger around. Unfortunately it's not available in South Africa, but I'm keeping my fingers crossed that will bring it to our shores soon.

6. Hisense 50" Full HD Led TV - Game {R6999}

Yes, I know, that's quite a pricey gift to ask for as a Christmas gift. To be honest, I'm promising this one for myself. I've been working a vacation job for the past month or so, and will buy myself a brand new tellie as soon as I saved up enough. I'm still rocking one of those old school, box TV's, which has reached its sell-by date a looooong time ago. It's time for an upgrade.

7. Fashion Faux Fur Snow Bear Cushion - @home {R171}

I saw these the other day in store and I just knew I had to have them. I'm planning on adding them to my current bedroom decor. Fluffy, white scatter cushions anyone? I'll take two! ✌️ 

8. Vanilla Brulee Treat Box - The Body Shop {R100} 

Two of my favourite things combined into one - The Body Shop and vanilla. A vanilla lover's dream come true! This gift set includes a vanilla scented body butter and shower gel. Not only will I have some seriously soft skin, I'll smell heavenly too. I might just have to stock up  on this one, as the Vanilla Brulee line is limited edition.

9. Large Aluminium Black Cosmetic Case  - Clicks {R239}

My current makeup travel bag is getting a wee bit too small. While my makeup collection grew, my makeup bag got left behind. Then this cosmetic case came along. The matte black finish adds a luxurious look to the case, while the metal casing will protect my makeup brushes and all my other cosmetic goodies.

All I want for Christmas, are 14 silly little things... [Part 1]

Hi there everyone!

I hope the first 2 days of the week treated you well. To be honest, my day took f-o-r-e-v-e-r to pass. Luckily Tuesday is almost done and we're close to the middle of the week. I'm currently relaxing infront of the tellie, drinking a good 'ol cup of joe. Perfect time to do some blogging.

Since today is already the 2nd of December, it's probably a good time to compile my Christmas wishlist, right?

This year I have 14 things on my list. 14 things I really, REALLY want. I'll probably only get half of them, but a girl can dream... ☺️

1. Bulb Glass Table Lamp Base - Mr Price Home {R499.99}

If you've read my blog posts lately, you'll know I'm moving to Cape Town at the end of this year. A new apartment needs new decor. This glass lamp is just so elegant and classy, who wouldn't want it?

2. PU Ostrich Drum Medium Lamp Shade - Mr Price Home {R179.99}

To go with my classy new glass lamp base, obviously... 

3. Nume Titan 3 Curling Wand - Available Online {$250} 

If you follow any youtube beauty guru, you've heard about this one! The tool comes with 3 sizes of curling wands -19mm, 25mm and 32mm and is available in black, pink, purple and turquoise. Obviously I want the pink one. Nume doesn't ship to South Africa at the moment (yes I know, let's just take a moment and be sad ), but hopefully they will in the near future. In the mean time, you can buy it off eBay or

4. Nescafe Dolce Gusto Genio Capsule Coffee Machine - Available on {R1799}

This one is all my uncle and aunt's fault. They have a machine similar to this one, and I've fallen completely in love with this bad boy. You can have a perfectly brewed cup of coffee in under a minute. Capsules for cappuccino, caramel latte, vanilla latte and even milo are available. I'm sold!
