Rubybox Review

Heyyyy baby (oh ah I wanna knoooooooooow if you’ll be my girl) Ok sorry  got a bit carried away there. Done now. The lovely people over at rubybox treated us to a sweet little box full of goodies for us to try out – we were happy girls! Here’s what we think about them:   […]

New MAC lippies!

Hello dearests Hope you all had a romanties V-day! A few weeks ago I had a MAC voucher (my favourite phrase ever), and Jodi and I headed off to Canal Walk to spend it. After many a swatch, I decided to go for two new lippies (no surprises there, I’m a lipstick addict). I love […]

Woolworths Dipliner Review

Hello dearests When I met Renee (the super-talented make-up artist who answered our Q&A here) I had just run out of my MAC Fluidline gel liner. So my first beauty question to her was “Which eyeliner??”. I was expecting the usual ‘Bobbi Brown gel’ answer, but instead she suggested the Woolworths Dipliner. I was super […]

Today I want you to meet another AMAZING (and hilarious!) make-up artist that I was lucky enough to meet on our Spitz shoot; Renee de Wit. Renee started working as a […]
