#GOODY BAG – WHAT DID I GET FROM THE KRYOLAN/EDL Hair & Beauty LAUNCH PARTY?

On the 24th January 2015 I attended the EDL Hair & Beauty Studio on Lynnwood and KRYOLAN launch party.

It was a fabulous affair indeed, there was lights, cameras and a lot of glamorous action.

We were surrounded with champagne, delicacies, music, photographers, sexy cars, people, celebs of course and so much more.  The EDL store was open for business and tours for anyone at the launch.  The owners Natalie & Esidio Camara and Elaine & Danny de Lima can be extremely proud of what they’ve achieved with this salon.  Across the board is the consensus that this salon is totally different to any other in South Africa.  It is a clean, refreshing, vibrant, professional space with that European feeling, as it’s situated right next to AROMA.

You will always see the owners, manager,  the professional artists, hair stylists, nail and beauty therapists there.  Ready to make you feel very special.

Towards the end of the evening, some of us lucky women received a gift bag with lots of goodies in.   The items were:

#HANDS DOWN – THIS IS THE BEST MAKEUP ARTIST IN THE WORLD 💋💄

Good Morning Pouter!

As you may or may not know, I love contouring and highlighting. Well, not so much highlighting, but definitely contouring.

I often share photos on our Facebook page showing how I look before and after.

There is one makeup artist and yes only ONE that perfects the whole contouring application. He inspires me with his before and after photos on a daily basis. One can only dream of being as good as he is, when it comes to drawing lines on women’s faces, transforming their “canvases” into works of living and breathing gorgeous art!

He is:

The best part? He doesn’t do the whole less is more nonsense, but only because he knows how to apply the more! Fine line people, fine liquid line!

He is touring the world where people can attend his workshops. So if you’re lucky enough to go…. GO!

Dazzling Miley

Heya Poutlings!

So the Miss Miley Cyrus Flashes Engagement Ring, Cleavage at Aussie Event with Liam Hemsworth!

20120628-185942.jpg

Miley Cyrus sure looks happy, and who can blame her?!

The 19-year-old bride-to-be and her handsome fiancé, Liam Hemsworth, were stunning at the Australians in Film Awards and benefit dinner in Century City, Calif., on Wednesday.

Miley wore a low-cut black dress, flaunting her cleavage with a built-in corset, and proudly showed off her gorgeous engagement ring.

“I just wanted to wear something simple because tonight is all about him,” she told Us Weekly. Hemsworth, 22, was an honoree at the event. “I’m super stoked for him. He’s really happy and it’s great!”

The Tennessee native also gave some insight into what attracted her to her beau of three years. She explained: “I think there’s a masculinity about [Australian men] that’s like growing up in the South, like I did. It’s very respectful and they are a little bit more respectful.

She is looking stunning, and he is as sexy as usual.

My Review of Sexpo

So, Saturday afternoon I got dressed in a tank top and jeans, did my hair and makeup and off we went to Sexpo with my cash in hand and my comfy shoes on.

When we arrived, we were in awe – if not a little overwhelemed – by the large crowd. It was so full that just entering the place was a bit of a mission, but it wasn’t like we weren’t expecting it. We browsed through the halls to find thousands of stalls with toys, costumes and DVD’s of people’s deepest desires  -where we found some freaky shit, lemme tell you!

From a girl who was painted as a pink leaopard walking around in her knickers to an old dude massaging a young chick in places I really wished I never saw to the “WOW 3D EXPERIENCE” that wasn’t so “wow” at all, I have to say that all in all, Sexpo 2011 wasn’t as great as I was expecting, despite the hype around it.

There were, however, some good bits. I managed to meet Miss Michelle “Bombshelle” McGee, who was a bit shy (who’d have known?) and asked if she would pose for a photo with me and she was about to say she would when one of the girls managing the ordeal said in her I’m-so-obviously-South-African-but-trying-to-sound-American-fake-accent told me that if we wanted to have a photo taken with Michelle that they would charge us R300… now, I don’t know about you, but I’m not a big enough a fan to pay R300 for a friggin photo! So, instead I got a hug. Aww! lol!

As for the strip shows, we saw an amatuer strip show where the girls looked confused and the guys did everything to look super funny and obviously the funny, fat guy with his willy hanging out won the prize as all the guys shouted for him to win.

Then, Michelle “Bombshell” McGee got on stage and did this weird thing on the pole that looked absolutely incredible! I think I have a new girl crush…

There were many pamphlets to be given out (as with all expo’s), there were many free shots given away (holy cow, did anyone else smell that delicious caramel vodka as you walked in?!) , but the prices on things were ridiculous considering the entrance price.

If I could have improved Sexpo myself, I’d have made the entrance fee cheaper so people could actually AFFORD the merchandise inside, I’d have more promo peeps handing out the shooters instead of standing in their stalls making people guess whether the shooters are free or not, had more professional strippers do their thing on the stage instead of random people making fools of themselves and I’d definitely have more stuff to do and filled more halls. But that’s just me.

Did you have a better time at Sexpo than me? Comment and let me know!
