Breast Cancer Awareness Month

With breast cancer being the most common cancer among-st women worldwide, Foschini has launched “Courage to Conquer” for Breast Cancer awareness month – to make a stand together, as women, against the epidemic that is sweeping the globe. Foschini have teamed up with 11 women from organisations such as Look Good…Feel Better, Reach for Recovery, and CancerVive to unite these breast cancer survivors to openly share their story and encourage other women in South Africa to be bold and find the courage within them.
This coming Saturday the CPT Fashion Friends are hosting our very own "Courage to Conquer" High Tea at Florentine's Coffee Shop and tickets are SOLD OUT! There were so many people that still wanted to join however our cut off was at 40max. This particular High Tea is for such a great cause. The funds raised will be donated towards the Reach for Recovery organisation which assist woman with breast prostheses for when they have had an Mastectomy. We have so many wonderful things in-store for the ladies that has so generously donated by purchasing a ticket! It really is going to be an amazing event! 
Breast Cancer is something that has affected my family and I on such a personal level and I’m sure many of you have experienced the effects of this horrible disease. It really is so important to try & make a difference however BIG or small. So why not get some friends together and make your contribution...

3 Big Trends for Summer '16

On Saturday past the CPT Foschini Fashion Friends did a trend talk at the 18twenty8 Big Sister Workshops which hosted an array of students. I got the privilege to share my 3 key items/trends which I believe will be big for the coming Summer '16. I don't usually follow trends but why not update your old wardrobe with one or two of these pieces.
1. The Off the Shoulder Trend
I'm sure you have seen this trend popping up all over now that the summery days are making a welcome appearance. You are likely to see this trend in either a top or dress. I must say I find the off the shoulder trend to be so feminine and pretty that I actually cannot help but to jump into it completely. Tip: Do invest in a good strapless bra, or even a good fitted bandeau bra, this will make all the difference.
2. Embroidery Trend
It is going to big this summer, I'm talking about embroidery on dresses, tops, pants & even jackets. It really is a trend that you are going to see everywhere and I am completely in love with it. We are seeing the Gucci Embroidery jacket making an appearance on many a celebrity but of late it has been patch embroidery has been incorporated into many other clothing items as well. How pretty is this woven off the shoulder embroidery top!!!
3. Re-worked denims
I'm talking about ankle frayed denims, they are the hottest thing on this planet! It really does put a fun twist on any outfit and throw a sexy pair of heels and you are good to go. Foschini has the most amazing selection of Denims and you should definitely check it out if you looking for an amazing pair.

It’s no secret, that I absolutely adore Miglio Designer Jewellery, you might have even seen me model some of their pieces in a campaign I did with them a few months ago too. But never the less with every new campaign the product just seems to get even more beautiful and absolutely timeless as we know Miglio Designer Jewellery to be. Every piece that I own is so versatile and interchangeable that with ease I can easily mix and match old pieces with newer pieces and it just continues to look so chic and fresh!
The newest piece of Miglio Jewellery that I love is this neck piece it forms part of the new collection called Obsession. This collection features textured chains, pendants, bangles, stylish earrings as well as a cuff and cocktail ring all in burnished silver with light chrome and clear Swarovski crystals.
 I love that it can actually be worn 2 different ways. We all know that money is tight these days and we are all want more bang out of our buck hence, this stylish piece is so versatile and can be worn one way for a classic and elegant finish or if neck piece is turned around it can be worn as choker with a pair of denims some black heels and beautiful top.
I love how effortlessly chic these Obsession earring set is. I love wearing simplistic pieces whereby it can be worn over and over, but not look to obvious and this definitely  is one of those pieces. I don’t know about you, but I hate not wearing earrings. If I ever do go without them I feel rather bare. If you are a wearing a bold neck piece, this understated yet modern earring studs with complete your look with ease.

These Obsession crystal earrings are such show stoppers. I can actually picture wearing it with an elegant dress have my hair beautifully pinned up and wear these earrings for maximum effect. You really don’t need to do much, these earrings will do it all for you.
 You can view the new full Obsession collection: here
… in the words of Jenny Miller, CEO and Designer of Miglio Designer Jewellery,

There is something special in the air.
Liberating. Alluring.
Rich, Intense and Intoxicating…
It’s called Obsession. Wear it.

Hanover Comedy Sundowners

So on Sunday past I attended the Hanover Street Comedy Sun-downer show. Or let me rather put it into context I have literally attended every comedy sundowner every month since the start of the year. That is just putting it mildly as to how much I enjoy going to GrandWest Casino & Entertainment world every 1st Sunday of a new month. 
The ever popular Lottering, known for this hit stage shows Grootbek, From the Cape Flats with Love and This is Captain Lottering Speaking, is an award winning stand-up comedian who has become a household name as a result of his numerous TV appearances over a career that has stretched over two decades. I was personally beyond excited to see Marc Lottering, I've heard him do comedy many times before. But for some reason it was even more intriguing to see him do it live and he was absolutely brilliant to say the least. His style of story telling is so unique and engaging that you cannot help but completely ball out with laughter. 
There was another comedians that really stood out for me too, it was Martin Davis which was exceptionally brilliant. Martin Davis was really amusing with his British accent discovering & exploring the world of cultures that South Africans carry. He did some really great cape coloured impersonations of which made me so proud to see how far we have come as a nation & that we could actually laugh at the crazy yet quirky things that we do.
The thing that I love about coming to Hanover Street month after month is that there are always a variety of coveted comedians, some are well established and some of these comedians you wouldn't have heard of before that's how new they are. But it is here where I seem to always find those rare gems of exceptional comedians. It is really an event not to be missed. So make sure you don't miss the next show. Make sure you stay in the loop of every upcoming show follow @hanoverstreetSA on twitter as well as check out the event & entertainment page for all things happening at GrandWest Casino & Entertainment world!

Review: The Curl Company

So I’m constantly on the search to find amazing products that work for our natural curls and this product is no different. In the past I have used many products that either left my hair oily, stiff and lifeless. But I have this product to be perfectly designed for us naturally curly hair girls.

I received 3 products to test and try out and I must say these products are absolutely amazing:
This Sulphate Free Shampoo & Conditioner is an absolute treat to use. If you are using a Shampoo and Conditioner that contains sulphate the short explanation is that you are literally washing away the moisture from your hair & if you want beautiful bouncy curls sulphate free shampoo & Conditioner is definitely what you should be using.

There also many other reason that you should be opting for a sulphate free shampoo & conditioner such as it reduces the risk of developing irritation and inflammation in the scalp, it increases moisture retention in the hair, improves and retains hairs natural oils, it retains hair colour in dyed hair for longer & it prevents your scalp from absorbing harmful chemicals.
