♥ FAVOURITE BUYS ♥ {August 2015}


Hi Everyone

All my favourite buys for the month of August. A gem necklace from Lovisa, the very popular Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water, a home for all my Lush Bath Ballistics and various cosmetics collections

LOVISA – Gem Necklace


I have been looking everywhere for a long gemstone necklace. So when i found this particular pink one at Lovisa in Canal Walk it was mine.

 ESSENCE – Nauti Girl Collection


Like a gentle sea breeze… this floral-fruity and aquatic scent spreads a pure maritime summer feeling! the head note is absolutely fruity and offers a sparkling freshness with its bergamot, black currant, peach, melon, tangerine and lemon ingredients. coconut, lotus blossom and oceanic elements in the heart note provide an aquatic, floral touch while raspberry, musk and vanilla add depth in the base note. playful and fresh, this eau de toilette is reminiscent of your last sailing trip on the wide-open, sparkling sea – pure freedom!

Brides as well as all other fans of exclusive Bohemian Chic can look forward to a modern and feminine style.

Soft pastel shades and contrasting grey are an ideal match for the internationally renowned Bridal Couture by Kaviar Gauche, which stands for its light, avant-garde look and modern romanticism. The absolute highlight of the edition is the Gilding Eye and Face Palette with a total of six eyeshadows, two powders for contouring and a white eyeliner.

Glass Jar


I was gathering way to many bath ballistics and had nowhere to put them. This glass jar from Plastics for Africa (5L) was perfect. Might need another one though

 Oh So Heavenly Bubble Balm


Oh So Heavenly have come out with a range of Eos Lipbalm dupes called Bubble Balm. The scents available are Vanilla Cupcake (Purple), Strawberries & Cream (Pink), Chocolate Praline (Brown) and the one i’m battling to find Butterscotch Frosting (cream). They are exclusive to Clicks for R22.95

LA Girl – Beauty Bricks + Lips


I was counting the days until these arrived in South Africa. The Eyeshadow Bricks were first released in March, and now have been re-released. Following are the Blush Bricks (x2 Blush, x1 Bronzer and x1 Highlighter) as well as Glazed Lip Paints (dupes for Two Faced Melted) and the Matte Pigmented Lip Gloss.

Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water


These are flying off the shelves of Clicks so fast and onto all South Africa Bloggers pages. I have been using them for 2 weeks now and love them. They sell exclusively at Clicks for R79.95 for a whopping 400ml but so worth it. Never has my makeup come off so easily and completely

Lush – Phoenix Rising


These have been discontinued !!!! *crying buckets* So when i stopped the very last 3 at the Waterfront branch i ran for a basket and stood around them like a bodyguard before anyone could even look at them. I would fight anyone for these babies!!!!
