DISARONNO wears VERSACE

So last week I was invited to attend a Disaronno launch event which was an exclusive unveiling of the new Disaronno Wears Versace limited edition bottle. The world’s favourite Italian liqueur will be back on Christmas wish lists this year with a glamorous new look, designed by Versace. The luxury fashion house has dressed the iconic bottle in the decadent style for which it has earned its reputation worldwide. The unveiling took place on a beautiful rooftop location on 71 Waterkant, Cape Town.
" Raylene of Scarlet Aura, Crystal of Be Fab Be You, Myself and Anja of Glitz and Grammar."

The DISARONNO wears VERSACE design takes its inspiration from the Versace Home Collection. The striking bottle will be draped in light blue and embellished with an opulent white and gold motif. This stylish drinks cabinet addition is the perfect gift for all fashion lovers this winter.
Augusto Reina, CEO of ILLVA Saronno commented on the collaboration: “For the second year running we are so proud to be partnering with another of the world’s finest Italian fashion houses. To be able to include Moschino and Versace amongst our list of collaborators is a real honour.”
What is even more amazing is that the project supports the charity ‘Fashion 4 Development,’ sponsored by the United Nations. DISARONNO will once again donate part of the proceeds towards the development of this unique project in Africa.

The night was filled with meeting and greeting fellow bloggers and friends and even meeting loads of new people. All in all a great chilled evening.

Each of the guest received a bottle to take home, mine will not be drank rather it will be admired for its beautiful and striking Versace design.

#FashionPassion2014 Event

So this Saturday afternoon pass I attended the #FashionPassion2014 event in V&A Waterfront. We were greeted with name tags and directed to the Foxbox bar in order to get our nails done. The polish I got was amazing hence; I won’t be showing you the upclose picture in this post. I’ll be doing a separate mini post as I think that this particular polish colour is so HOT for summer right now.
Anyway back to the event, we received these juice bottles called The Skinny Juice Co, and I was very impressed with the taste, my flavor contained sweet potato, apples, pears and a few other things. But was delish! Really want to try some of the other flavours.
We were treated to a mini fashion show to kick start the Fashion Passion Event
We were then introduced to a panel which included bloggers like SimplySiyaam & FashionistaCT aswell as the Vada sisters they talked about blogging, fashion, trends, brands and designers.
Few of the things that were really informative were how to deal with brands that approach bloggers and how to stay true to the look and feel of your personal style and blog.

When all the discussions and questions were concluded we were free to take pictures at the photobooth and mingle with fellow bloggers.

Trust that next years event will be bigger and better!

Tomy Takkies turns 50

So if you read my blog, you would know that I love Tomy Takkies. I own quiet a few pairs and I simply enjoy wearing them with a cute dress or a easy pair of boyfriend denims. But what I didn't know what that Tomy Takkies has been around for 50 years! 
So the Tomy Team has come up with this super cool concept of designing your own Tomy, so let me just give you a heads up, i'm not a designer and i'm not good at drawing either. I have faith in the Tomy Team that that they will bring us the hottest style Tomy's Takkies year after year. 
But either way I thought ill give it a try. I know my drawing skills is looking rather rough he he I just couldn't decide if I wanted to add more or less. I just ended up adding more and more.
But never the less I don't think anyone else would have my design, so that makes it unique and a limited edition lol

My design is probably not world class or the winning concept, but it sure was loads of fun. Made me feel like a kid in a candy shop.
If you to want to design your own Tomy Takkies to enter, download and print the paper template here: http://bit.ly/TomyCustom

Draw and get creative with your designing. Then cut and glue your design together.Take a great picture of your paper Tomy Takkies, and upload it here:http://bit.ly/1jtxqEj

I Heart Durban

So I haven’t shared much about my Mini Vacation to Durban, other than pictures I've posted to Facebook, Twitter & Instagram.
Seeing that everyone is asking me about it, ill thought ill do a little post and share some of my instagram pictures with you.  So how this vacation came about was that my Husband and I were planning on going to Durban in Jan 2015, as it’s always been something that I’ve wanted to do. But as life goes something always seemed to pop up. A couple of weeks ago I attended Rubybox, Beauty night out and was blessed enough to win 2 return tickets with Travelstart & Airlink. Hubby and I knew that this was the time just to do it, so after 3weeks after that night we were on our way to Durban.
So after we landed in Durban, we got our car rental and went to book into a little cottage in Durban North. The weather seemed nice and sunny but the Friday evening the sky looked rather dark and the wind started blowing heavily. Now don’t get me wrong, one of the big reasons for wanting to visit Durban is for their Tropical Climate, warm weather and beautiful beaches. However that was definitely not on the cards for us, as for some crazy reason, it was cold and raining the entire 4days we were there. That however did not put a dampen on our vacation as there were so much more to be seen.
We checked out Ushaka Marine World, even though we could only see the aquarium and the animals, was it was far too cold for the water slides. We checked out Durban Mini Town, which are miniature models of all the buildings and transport systems in Durban. We even checked out the Durban Market, which we ended up being dressed up in Chinese wedding attire for fun of it. The Botanical gardens are gorgeous and really beautiful place to relax and read a book. I went to Gateway mall, which is huge and I can totally see myself getting carried away with the shopping. In total it was a easy 4days of total happiness!
Even though it was only 4days, it was so much fun. It crazy to think that we live in SA but we have barely scrapped the brim of the beautiful landscapes our country has to offer. Ill end of by saying that Durban holds a tiny part of my heart.

Pastel Mint Matt Polish

 So this is going to be a short post, as I merely want to show off this stunning polish I received from The Foxbox, using Toy Nail Polish! A matt coat was painted over and gave a beautiful finish. I love all these beautiful pastel colours, and I believe this colours is gonna be Hot for summer.

#Iphoneography

So I super excited when I was invited to the Iphoneography event. If you know me personally you would know that I am obsessed with any “Apple” hence this event was not to be missed for me. The event was basically a platform to showcase all the various photographs that has been taken using an Iphone.
 There were various categories that you could your most unique and loved photographs. This year there was even a #selfie category. How cool is that? So if you could hold still, snap a picture while trying to not do the duck pout. You could totally enter the competition.


When I arrived we were placed in the awesome “Press section” which was awesome as the food and drinks were amazing. Ps: I rushed to the event straight after work, so I was starving!
The various awards winners were announced in their respective categories and the crowd went wild. It really was amazing to see that those pictures/moments that the winners snapped were merely them taking pictures and having fun. I suppose they probably never realized that they would actually be recognized for it. But that’s the magic behind it.
To end of the awesome evening, Beatenberg took the stage. Now don’t get me wrong prior to this event I didn’t even know who Beatenberg were, until they played there 1st song and I realized I knew every word! That is what happens when you listen to the radio, jam to a song and not know who sings it. Must say, I will now always remember.



















Maybe the above picture with these crazy eyes can get me an award :)

Cotton On launches New Active-Swim Range

Summer is almost here in full swing and what better way to celebrate is with some stunning new swimwear!!
Lifestyle and fashion brand, Cotton On Body, reveals its fruity October swimwear with the launch of an active-swim range. Taking inspiration from healthy lifestyles, the Poolside Paradise collection features a blend of cheeky prints, bright and bold pops of colour, retro shapes and a mix and match approach to swimwear.
Then launch of Active Swim
Cotton On Body is launching something new this season. In surfer and scuba-influenced fabrics like neoprene and mesh, with functional, sports-inspired detail, this range is designed with an active lifestyle in mind. Whether it’s paddle boarding, surfing or a morning beach run, these pieces combine the best elements of swimwear and simple activewear. Think: industrial zips, high necks and racer backs.
Pineapples and palm trees
Synonymous with sand between your toes, sun on your skin and salt in your hair, there is nothing more appropriate to turn up the heat on your summer holiday than some sweet, tropical fruit!
“This year’s take on the tropical print is all about exotic fronds and fruit. It’s an edgy and playful alternative to feminine florals,” says Maria Strangio, Cotton On Body swimwear buyer.
Fun and fruity prints include the bold, all-over palm print; the pineapple motif (either as a strong graphic icon or stamped across a garment) and fruit-flavoured slogans.

Shapes and silhouettes
“We know our girl loves to hit the beach looking hot,” says Maria. “From girly to edgy, Cotton On Body has shapes to suit all bikini babes.”
• Girly glamour rules poolside this season with rouching, frills and fringing
• It’s a blast from the past and a return to retro beach attire with balconette booster tops and high waist bottoms
• Strapping and cut out designs – keep a look out for criss-cross straps, wrapped at the waist in separates and side cut outs and plunging necklines on one pieces

Sea foam is the new black
This spring / summer, it’s all about vibrancy! Bright and bold pops of solid colour coordinated with tropical foliage, floral and tribal botanical prints.

“Influenced by the ‘90s, pastels are also big and the hero colour for spring is sea foam,” says Maria. As the weather heats up, so does the palette - towards the end of the season we’ll see juicy pops of melon and coral.

Cotton On Body’s Poolside Paradise swimwear will be available in stores and online from October.
