I recently went away for about 5 days and I was quite shocked to see how much makeup I had to pack. When I got back, I realized that I had actually used most of what I had took.

My friend then asked me what if I could choose one thing to take with me, what would I choose? I couldn't decide on one thing and I am now torn between red lipstick and concealer!

What make up item can you not live without?

Girl Meets Dress

I was contacted a while back by Girl Meets Dress to blog about their site. At first, I didn't want to because their service was for UK residents only. I then realized that quite a few of my followers are from the UK.

Girl Meets Dress is an online service that allows you to hire a dress for a special occasion and then you can return it once you have worn it. I think its such a great idea because I tend to buy or have dresses made and I end up never wearing them again!

Girl Meets Dress also allows you to create wish lists so that you can save dresses that you are interested in. The dresses in the above images are once that I thought  were pretty. I also love that they have so many different designs up, which gives me inspiration for the next time I need a dress.
They have quite a few designer brands, including Victoria Beckhan, D&G, Stella McCartney, Marc Jacobs and much more.

I really wish South Africa had a service like this. It would make my life a lot easier.
Visit the Girl Meets Dress site here and start making your own wish list!

Wet n Wild comes to South Africa

Yesterday I was speaking about how excited I am about the lipstick I had received in a blog sale because Wet n Wild is not available here!.
I was browsing twitter when I saw Freebees PR (view their blog here) tweet about Wet n Wild coming to South Africa!

Go and like their Facebook page (here) so that we can all know when exactly it gets here. 

Sleek Pout Polish in Electro Peach

I mentioned in yesterdays post that I received this Sleek product when I ordered a few things from a blog sale. I hadn't tried Sleek when the full range was sold in South Africa. Zando now sells a select amount of their products.

When I saw the colour, I thought it wouldn't suit me. I never wear coral or orange. I tried it on and changed my mind immediately. Unlike most lip balms, this one is incredibly pigmented. Its definitely not a sheer lip balm. Its also not too sticky which I like. I did need to reapply often but I do that with most lip balms. I also like that it has SPF15, making it perfect for the warm weather thats to come.

I think its perfect for summer when I feel like wearing very little makeup but I still want a pretty lip color!
