img_6897I love my manicure i did on Monday, more than i thought i actually would as i don’t often wear the colour blue. I used Essie Pret-A-Surfer and Saltwater Happy (from the Summer 2015 Collection) on my nails as well as Morgan Taylor’s If The Slipper Fits (Spring 2015 Collection – inspiration from the live action Cinderella movie) as an accent nail.

Essie nail polish available from Clicks and Dis-Chem stores for R 115-125.00 and Morgan Taylor nail polish for R 125.00 from Dis-Chem stores

YSL’s Black Opium is one of my all time favourites perfumes. It was released in 2014, and was announced as a rock’n’roll interpretation of the classic that should highlight the dark, mysterious side of the YSL brand.

Top Notes – Pink Pepper, Orange Blossom and Pear
Middle Notes – Coffee, Jasmine, Bitter Almond and Licorice
Base Notes – Vanilla, Patchouli, Cedar and Cashmere Wood

I got the mini from Foschini in a set of 8 mini perfumes that are realeased around Christmas each year.

Available from Edgars, Red Square, Foschini for R 724.00- R 1 305.00 (30ml-90ml)

I am a big collector of gemstone rings. I love that you can wear a different colour gemstone depending on how you feel on that day. I have a ruby, garnet (my birthday stone), tourmaline, morganite, amethyst, aquamarine and citrine.

I just need a sapphire and emerald to finish my collection.

All my rings were bought from American Swiss – various prices – view their website to see their range of rings available.

What are your favourite 5 ?
