i heart dresses

Found some stunning steals on today. If you haven't visited this website you need to! It is a British based online clothing store. I'm telling you, they have some amazing finds. There is something exciting about purchasing something you can't get in a store in SA.

   These are my picks. I'll have one of each in my size thank you :)

milk bottle measuring cups

Love these milk bottle measuring cups from Anthropologie! Wonderfully beautiful inside and out, and they’re stackable making them the prettiest space saver ever!

I am very excited for the weekend I have ahead.
Tomorrow one of my very special friends, Jenna is getting married (I am one of her bridesmaids- excitement!) Tonight us girls are having a girly sleepover- takeout, (one) bottle of champers, choccies, pre wedding pampering and the DVD "Bridesmaids" which I have heard is an absolute hoot! I love weddings and I know this one is going to be a BIG party- lots of champers, dancing and celebration.
So here's to the future Mr and Mrs Everitt!

PS: Dont you LOVE this poster- Def going to have it printed & framed to put up in my future bar/ entertainment area.

giant scrabble

How cool is this? ikhaya are now stocking the scrabble alphabet! You can also customise by changing the size, letter and colour. 
7cm x 7cm @ R40 each / 12cm x 12cm @ R60 each.
Email to place your orders!

Just adore these heart shaped tea cups & saucers from the spoonsisters


 If you looking for a blusher that leaves your cheeks kissably sweet, the Benefit CORALista Blush is by far the best there is (in my opinion). 
 Being a 'Mac only' girl it took allot for me to try another make up brand but after much umming and aahing I have & let me tell you Benefits range of makeup is just divine! I mean it is part of Louis Vuitton so of course it would be right!? One of the products I absolutely adore is the CORALista Blush.
I have very fair skin and after applying the blush, I instantly have a soft pink glow to my cheeks. The best part is, coral is one of those colors that looks universally flattering on any skin tone. It adds a subtle sparkle when you apply it to your cheekbones & it smells amazing too!*

"Life, I really believe, is about falling in love. With ideas, with stories, with experiences, mistakes, adventures, poetry, imaginations, old books, new books, movies, music, and, of course, people. Everything that is worthwhile in this world is worth falling in love with, and I can’t imagine a better way to live one’s life than to be always head over heels." - unknown

heart shape sushi mould

Oh my! Find it here

foam at home

Clairol (Nice 'n Easy range) have just launched a foam range of hair colour. How fantastic!? After mixing up the ingredients in a special applicator & activating it by shaking it gently three times, the colour bubbles up into a brilliant foam that is sooooo much easier to apply than the traditional liquid colour.
Look out for the Nice 'n Easy Colour Blend Foam available in 18 shades at your nearest Clicks store.

nothing is impossible

Just love this! Found on my friend natalie's blog. You HAVE to go look at Marc johns blog- Love his work- quirky and fun.

madame zingara

A team of us including my husband, gorgeous sister, best friend & a few other mates, went to Madame Zingara on Weds night. My my, what an unbelievable evening. Madame Zingara is a unique & magical dinner cirque. Performed in a magnificent old tent, draped in plush purple velvet with stained glass windows around the top, with twinkling fairy lights & candles gleaming from every corner and strange & wonderful characters such as priests, pirates, drag queens, baboons, queens, to name a few wondering around you truly feel as if you have been transported into a completely different world. In between being served a decadent four course feast, the most incredible acts are performed that honestly leave your jaw on the floor! Just spectacular, in every sense of the word!

good advice
