What do I do when these emotions hit? Well, the same thing as the…

Our DIY Rural Engagement Party

I absolutely adore the outdoors…especially in the countryside! When my lovely fiancé informed me that he was planning an engagement party this summer, I got so excited!

Product Review: Yves Saint Laurent Forever Youth Liberator -Eyes

I am finding myself to be rather partial to this product. Granted, it is a bit of an investment, but as a lady in her late 30’s, I can easily tell you that an investment into skincare is a solid investment indeed! Similar to the Clarins eye cream that I loved, the difference seems to…

I quite like this product. I usually frequent fragrances which are a bit headier, musky or very light and airy. This is quite light and is named perfectly. It smells very summer day-ish (if thats possible) and has a headier fruity aroma. One good spritz is enough. I like the packaging because it is compact…

Winter slim-down diet week 33

This week, I have accomplished absolutely nothing.😦 Good news: No weight gain, no binges…I’m still at 61 something kgs. Bad news: No weightloss either. Not too big a surprise, since I’ve basically just been in bed. I was doing well until the weekend hit, although I was dragging a bit for more than a week…
