Blush Pink {OOTD}

Blush pink – 2 words that make me really happy. Lately, I’ve been finding myself drawn to anything in this (or close to) this colour and so, I decided to dedicate this OOTD post, specifically to the shade that makes me smile.

Gold/Tulle OOTD

Hey guys!

So, I’m back with another collab featuring My Online Souk.

The lovely ladies over at MOS (find their website here) sent me another Diamanté-branded scarf to style – this time, it was black jersey scarf with gold detailing – which is obvi perfect for a wedding or an occasion that requires a lil’ bit of fancy.

Even though I’ve never styled/wore a jersey scarf as a turban before, I thought that this was the perfect opportunity to take on the challenge and make it work!

Mouza {OOTD}

I know what you’re thinking. It has been ages since I’ve uploaded an OOTD post (or any post for that matter) but in my defence whenever I attempted to do a shoot, either the weather, the lighting or the location just didn’t work for me. Also, I’ve been experiencing some MAJOR technical difficulties so even when I did capture the most perfect images, I was unable to upload! But fear not, all is okay now, so you can look forward to many more OOTD posts!

I recently realized that finding an item that is easy to wear, doesn’t require a lot of effort and that can be worn in many different ways is difficult but not impossible.

Dove’s Oxygen Moisture Shampoo and Conditioner Review 

Before I started wearing a scarf full-time, I had hair that was thick, bouncy and full of volume, however, due to the constant downward pressure that my scarf applies to my scalp, I’m now left with hair that lacks volume and that is much thinner than before.
So, naturally, when Dove sent me their Oxygen  Moisture Range to test out and review, I was really excited to see if it will make any difference to my hair whatsoever!

My Skin Journey with Dermaceutic and Dr Ridhwana Vawda

If you’ve been following my blog since its inception in 2013, then you are definitely aware of the battle that I’ve been fighting in regard to my skin.
My skin is very much prone to breakouts and is so reactive that most products do not agree to it. During Ramadaan (June/July), my skin took a turn for the worse and I broke out on my forehead, cheeks, jawline and even on my chin – it was just total insanity.

I finally decided that it was time for a change and as fate may have it, I made that decision just a few days before I attended Dr Ridhwana Vawda + Dermaceutic’s Promo Day.

Durban Fashion Fair 2015 Roundup + Backstage Photos

If you’re active on social media or just generally aware of what’s going in the world, particularly SA (like you should be!), then you’re bound to have heard of Durban Fashion Fair that was held last week.

Besides the pop-up stores, DFF hosted various fashion shows featuring designs from local and international designers including Jamal Taslaq from Rome, Thula Sindi and Life by Andre Martin, to name a few, that took place this past Wednesday through Saturday – and the guys over at MAC cosmetics were cool enough to invite me for all of the shows, so I really did get to experience it for myself.
