    Makeup by Ryno

    Having this extra time to recover from my transplant has allowed me to discover myself once more, as well as what I am really passionate about.  And I realised how much I absolutely ADORE makeup & how much I miss doing my makeup, as well as others.  I have been out of this realm for a little while, so I have been watching many YouTube clips to learn more & also get to stay on top of the latest trends. Jeffree Star, James Charles, Nikkie Tutorials, & Jaclyn Hill are stunning international makeup artists & vloggers that are world-famous – & watching their videos you can see why.  However, they…

    Lois’s Beauty Studio

    When I left school I studied for 3 years to become first a beauty therapist, & then a spa therapist.  I learnt all the basics such as manicures, pedicures, massage & facials; & then moved on to sports massage, reiki & more specialised treatments.  I absolutely loved doing this & meeting all the interesting people that I came into contact with.  Unfortunately when my health took a drastic decline, I could do longer cope with the manual side of things & often could not even speak to my clients. This left me embarrassed  & oftentimes uncomfortable when I couldn’t give of my best. Coming from this background means that I…

    Tissue Oil

    When I was contacted by Rubybox to participate in their survey for Justine Tissue Oil, I was very interested!  Rubybox is a great service offered right here in South Africa, where you subscribe & they send you surveys to complete that they feel may relate to you & your needs.  You then complete them honestly, & if you fit their brief then they send you samples of a specific product for yourself & your friends to trial.  You usually have to complete surveys throughout your time of using them, & sometimes even send through progress shots to prove that these products are making a difference.

    A Day of Radiance

    After using a few of Bella Boneca‘s products, I was so impressed & immediately reached out to Megan, who started this whole business.  She realised the importance of using natural products, free of parabens & not tested on animals.  She researched & put a lot of time into this, before realising that there wasn’t a product that suited exactly what she was looking for & thus Bella Boneca began… They are created using a range of natural ingredients that is handpicked to ensure that your skin is nourished & pampered.  The products are symbiotic, & work together to restore, heal & nourish your skin – leaving you feeling like a…

    Seven Blossoms

    I am a HUGE Korean Beauty fan, & have been using some of their products for a while now.  I LOVE how the products remove my makeup so easily, whilst keeping my skin feeling soft & moisturised.  There have been a few different companies that I have ordered from here in South Africa, but meeting the owners of Seven Blossoms made me smile so much & I was so impressed with their level of customer care so I knew that I had to do a feature on them. Your names: Yasaar & Patrick Your business name: Seven Blossoms How did you decide on this name: Seven is a lucky number…

    Beautiful

    I LOVE perfume!  My special scent that my husband has always liked is Chanel Coco Mademoiselle, & once I had used it once I was hooked too!  However, when finances were a bit tight, then this was the first thing to go.  Then a few months ago I came across Michelle’s page, The Beautiful Way, & contacted her immediately. Michelle was super helpful & immediately had advice & ideas on which one I should get after I told her which types of scents I liked, as well as a recommendation for husband.  They arrived within 2 days & we both LOVE our perfumes – plus have received compliments from friends…

    GypsyBird Makeup

    As a typical girlie-girl I LOVE wearing make-up & being made to feel pretty.  I don’t wear make-up every day (I often just work from home), but when I go out I like to put in some extra effort.  And looking at social media influencers who are super talented & inspiring makes me want to try harder, experiment with new looks, & also support these beautiful ladies. GypsyBird Makeup is one of these influencers that constantly amazes me & her feed on Instagram is full of beautiful pics & awe-inspiring makeup that she does. Her prices for makeup for events & so on are only R650, & with lashes are R750. …

    Bella Boneca

    When you meet someone, the first thing you notice is their face & their skin.  After suffering from teenage acne, & also having very pale skin that scars easily I have always put some research into what I am using on my skin.  Thanks to FB & Instagram’s algorithms they now suggest different skincare products & houses that they think I may like, & Bella Boneca popped up on both – so this was definitely a sign from the universe that I needed to look into them a bit more & start following them! But as it happens, life gets hectic & I was in ICU for a week & then…

    Addi is the BOMB!

    Princess Addison is such a special little girl.  When I first met her, I was completely enamored by her friendliness, zest for life & her complete love for animals.  We bonded whilst watching The Trolls & she chatted away to me about all sorts, & getting to see life through a child’s eyes truly reminded me about how beautiful it is! Recently I saw on FB that she has started her very own business called Bath Bombs by Addison, where she is making the most stunning bath bombs with her mum & selling these – with some of the money being donated to FORA (Friends Of Rescued Animals).  What a…
