ITS A NEW YEAR – Life Update 2020

Hi All

Wow!, It’s been a minute. I haven’t blogged since last year March. Last year was a lot. From my Dad’s cancer diagnosis to my buying a flat, 2019 was a lot to handle and I just didn’t have the drive or motivation to blog. I needed a detox from social media.

This year a LOT has changed. I’m settled in my flat, I bought a new car and then….. I was retrenched. My last official day was actually today. I have no idea what I’m going to do, I’m applying for jobs left, right and centre but not has come in yet. I’m honestly praying for a break. Let’s hope a better chapter comes my way this year. I need good news and good vibes.

I really want to start blogging again. Usual topics being beauty, but I also want to do more Lifestyle posts like the transformations from my flat as well as my love of books and reading which I slightly touched on last year but mostly my love for beauty and makeup.

Have a great day

Welcome to Popcorn and Pearls…. My name is Melissa. I’m a 30-something year old Beauty and Lifestyle Blogger. I originally come from Durban, living in Cape Town with my 3 furbabies (cats), Peanut (my little panda) and my Twins, Lycan and Luna, for 15 years now and loving this City with all it has to offer. I have a love for everything Beautiful – from Makeup, to Fragrances, Clothing, Shoes and even Food. Popcorn and Pearls is my home away from home, the place i dive into to get away from the busy yet mundane life of the ebb and flow of work and sleep. I love sharing my finds with you all, whether it be a beautiful yet inexpensive dupe makeup item, a piece of jewelry, books or a little undiscovered restaurant. I love sharing my views on makeup, fragrance, body products and more with every one of you. I know you get great products in the USA or UK but i love finding dupe affordable products for all my readers in our very own South Africa When i am not working on my blog then i am a Full Time Travel agent. I also am addicted to TV series as well as reading. Thanks for reading my blog and being such great supporters. Please feel free to contact me anything on:
