Summer with Lipidol Sunscreen Oil

Hiiiiiii. After this weekend, I feel like summer might have finally arrived in Cape Town. Sho, it certainly took it’s time.

Summer loving with Eucerin

Travel Buddies Vol I

Cat Eye 3-Way

Ehehehehehe! I did it again! About a year ago we wrote the first 3 way- the Coconut Oil 3 Way. Now I have mentioned before that my love for the old flick has been a long one, I actually think it’s probably the only make up style that suits me. Everything else just doesn’t feel […]
