Being a Rain Ranger (I have a badge to prove it after going into the Plantbos forest with them) we were given a present for attending. This being a part of their Biologie range the Coconut & Shea Intense Hydration Cream. I have been using this since the start of winter 3 times a week all over to stop the winter dryness setting in and I am absolutely loving it! There is also no sight or feeling of winter dry skin which makes me incredibly happy!
Coconut + Shea Intense Hydration
The cream contains Aloe Ferox, Tangerine and Sesame Oil which is formulated specifically for dry skin but it also promotes toning and stimuates and restores the mineral content of the skin. It is perfect for a shoulder rub when you are lucky enough to have someone give you one or to give one to someone you love. A little really goes a long way and I will defintely be stocking up on this bad boy once I have finished it.
The product retails for R169.00 and you can purchase it either at the Rain Day Spa in Swellendam, Cavendish Square Day Spa or at the Rain shop at the V&A Waterfront or online here. I visited the store at the V&A for the first time last week and all I can say is that it is beautiful and smells amazing, I also did some stocking up and can’t wait to try all the spoils I got myself! The Coconut & Shea Intense Hydration would also be a perfect present for someone who is need of some pampering as its a real spoil!

Hey there gorgeous.
Recently I went to a dear friends wedding. So I thought I would show you show you how I did my makeup.
So many makeup artists say you should have one focal point on your face. And generally they’re right. But there is one look where you could pull off strong eyes and strong lips. And that’s when using Red lips.
This is how I do it…
First, it’s all about contouring and highlighting and of course blending it all properly.
Then I add a shimmery highlighting eyeshadow in the corner of my inner eyes and on the brow bone. After that I apply black eyeliner and set it with black eyeshadow on my lower lash line.
I then added a darker shade of eyeshadow on my outer eyelid and blending it to the crease. Giving it a slightly smokey effect. After which I add eyeliner with a tapered brush and an eyeliner paint pot. Of course I shape my brows. Brows are the frame of the face, the face is the picture. So I always shape my brows. As thick, as thin as I want.
I then finished off with falsies and the famous Rubywoo MAC red lipstick!!!
In a nutshell, I used KRYOLAN foundations, INGLOT eyeshadows and of course Rubywoo lipstick.
I love wearing this look when going out. It’s strong, yet feminine. 💋
Have a fabYOUlous day!!!

Crabtree & Evelyn are a brand which silently but proudly portray luxurious British heritage. The brand stemmed from a family run business that made home-made soaps with an international themes which has since grown into a huge international company which is known for quality toiletries and they have stemmed into fragrances and even food. Crabtree & Evelyn are the ultimate hipster company as they made “natural” cool before “natural” was the in thing to do. Working in harmony with nature their products are inspired from a time when the garden played an important role in daily life and they use plant, fruit and flower essences for natural fragances and soothing solutions for the skin.
From two of the recent #BWB or Bloggers Who Bless Cape Town meets – we have been totally spoilt with their wonderful handcreams. The one I’ve been using on my paws is the Iris Hand Therapy. Firstly, it is small enough to carry around in your handbag, they certainly pack a punch in these harsh winter months. They touch your skin and are absorbed leaving you with wonderfully smooth and soft hands that have no left over residue or greasiness. A real winter-must have. On top of this they leave your hands smelling absolutely gorgeous and long after use they leave a very faint scent of beautiful iris. These hand creams are award-winning and its not hard to see why. They certainly win my vote for best winter handcream for 2014 that I’ve used so far ;) Have a look at the entire handcream range over here at their website.
For 50g this product retails at R180 but you use such a little product it can last you for ages so, its well worth the investment!
Crabtree & Evelyn are not only an easy solution for a gift for the special ladies in your life as their products will happily work in harmony with everyone, they are a healthy and smart choice for daily use.
