Good morning my dahlings!
Trust you all having a great week so far?
Down to business. My make-up box consists of the following: M.A.C, Model Co, Bobbi Brown, Catrice, Benefit and now INGLOT! Oh my word, can I just please tell you that INGLOT is my NEW love! No, I still love my boyfriend the most with my pets, family and friends. Anyway, Fi told me about this Inglot make-up a while ago and that it was available in Sandton Mall. Apparently a lot of make-up artists are preferring it over M.A.C! Can you believe that? I had to experience this for myself!!!
Besides the make-up, the trip getting it was just fab. I’m going to let you in on my weekend. Yay!
Lunch at the MUGG & BEAN, Centurion Mall with my sweetie Nicholas.
It was just a fabulous day all together. An employee in the Jockey store started asking me questions. “Do you have a sister? She looks just like you hey? She also has your hair hey? She also has a LV bag she swings over her shoulder hey?” He then went on to saying that at first he thought it was her and was astonished at how fast she got another guy! haha.
I just have to tell you that Primi Piatti in Menlyn Mall have a kick-ass teapot cocktail. Yum
I must however brag about Ritrovo! It’s the most stunning restaurant in Pretoria, Waterkloof heights. The food is amazing! The owner and his team or let’s say family are just fabulous. My sister gets their real italian pizza every friday! Religiously! So Nic, Oscar and I went to have some dinner there. What else but their pizza?
My Gautrain Gold Card
Let the trip to Sandton start. INGLOT here we come!
Finally the train stopped at:
We got off and make our way to Sandton Mall. My boyfriend is a mechanical engineer and his brother is almost one. They were discussing the beams, the structure itself and here was Sandy talking to herself about Inglot. haha
The famous Nelson Mandela statue
Sandton Mall is more for the ladidaa kind of person. Thank goodness I only have to go there for my Inglot stock. It’s not my favorite mall as it’s extremely busy, because everybody wants to be seen there I guess.
Before any shopping starts, Nic and I just love to eat out. So we went to Pappas. A greek restaurant overlooking the square. Was lovely. And I had the best Mojito there. Tanqueray Mojito
And so with our tummies full, we set out on our mission. Entering the busy mall, passing all the other shoppers to find…..INGLOT. Well that was my mission. Not sure what Nic and Oscars mission was. We pass the human traffic and then, the heavens opened and light beamed on the name I was praying to find…
Found it! It was waiting for me. I enter and something happened. I felt I was “home”.
What a stunning store. Neat and easy. No fuss. The service was great. My favorite thing about Inglot is their pallets. You can make your own pallet. The colours you want. Lips, cheeks, blushes and eyeshadow all in one pallet if you want. The make-up artist there will help you out and show you around. She’ll give you some ideas and does not overlook your opinion. Here are some examples of the pallets and also the one I put together.
This is my pallet. A bronzer, blusher and two eyeshadows.
Love the packaging too! Even my engineer boyfriend agrees! It’s got his stamp of approval. They are not expensive at all. For this pallet with the bronzer, blusher and 2 eyeshadow plus a eyeliner I paid under R500.00. WTF!
After the make-up shopping we decided to head back to Hatfield.
Waiting for the train to arrive.
Pretoria stop, ours was next.
It was a great day. Cannot wait to get onto the train again and zoom off to Inglot! Later that evening we got us some Strawberry Daiquiri, Heineken and SUSHI at the Ocean Basket in Irene Village Mall!
Our weekend ended off at the Good Food and Wine show. Drove to the Coca-Cola Dome and was welcomed with hungry maniacs! OMG, that place was buzzing! Ate crepes and guess what? We found a Tangueray cocktail stand! We bought Raw Chocolate (amazing). Chocolate without dairy or sugar! Mouthgasm for sure! I got me some Basil seedlings and Italian parsley to replant. (Yes I’m into planting recently)
BTW, Gordon Ramsay was there, but I didn’t get to see him :-(

So that was the weekend passed. Everyday was just great! Nic always knows how to plan things out for us! I found a new make-up! I feel proud of being on the Gautrain (wasn’t the last trip), am blessed to enjoy great restaurants. Looking back at the whole weekend, I just realize how blessed my life is! So I’m feeling really blessed at this point and sending you all blessings too! It’s overflowing!
Hope you enjoyed this very long post (apologizes). Luckily it’s a very visual long post!
