Red Square have gone Digital

Hiya Poutlings <33

RED SQUARE

Red Square – famously part of the Edgars group has finally launched an online store where you can get some of your favourite beauty and perfume brands online! They have also stated that they will offer a “free” sampling programme, simply put that when you order online you can choose three sample items to try, at no additional cost. It sounds very Rubybox-esque but it sounds good to me.

Red Square have also taken into account that we, beauty bloggers as a whole are quite loud and proud about our purchases and that we want to share our product experience and knowledge with people on the web, be it via social media, blogging or review sites, and have catered for this on their website providing the opportunity for the consumers to post comments, make recommendations or even give advice about the products on offer in order to strive for consumers to make more informed choices….

The goodies you buy from Red Square can also be gift wrapped with a personalised message on the card…. this sounds like it could be an absolute save for last minute birthday or anniversary presents for the men out there 😉 Look out for perfume-presents, ladies!

Orders over R350 have free delivery, any order under that amount would be subject to an additional R45 on your purchase price. Payments can be made via credit card, or any Edgars or Jet account. HELLO 6 MONTHS INTEREST FREE CREDIT.

I’m really loving the fact that they have finally launched in the correct direction, local South African online stores will most definitely soar over the next few years but I am suprised that they did not think to do this previously…. The website on a whole, is a bit boring for a company with such an established brand however it is still early days and they may actually liven it up a bit.

It however amazing that we can now shop these amazing brands online without having to pay for parking. The brands on offer include (the links are to our previous articles on the brand/person): Antonio Banderas, Avril Lavigne, Azzaro, Beautique, Britney Spears, Burberry, Bvlgari, Cacharel, Calvin Klein, Carolina Herrera, Chloe, Christina Aguilera, CK One Color, Clarins, Davidoff, Diesel, Dolce & Gabana, Dunhill, Elie Saab, Elizabeth Arden, Elizabeth Taylor, Escada, Estee Lauder, Ferrari, Filorga, Giorgio Armani, Gosh, Gucci, Hugo Boss, I Love…, Imedeen, Issey Miyake, Jean Paul Gaultier, Jennifer Lopez, Jimmy Choo, Joop!, Justin Bieber, Kim Kardashian, L’Oreal Paris, Lacoste, Lancome, Lanvin, Madonna, Marc Jacobs, Montblanc, Nails Inc., Narciso Rodriguez, Nine West, Paco Rabanne, Placecol, Puma, Quorum, Ralph Lauren, Revlon, Rihanna, Roberto Cavalli, Shakira, Swarovski, Taylor Swift, Ted Lapidus, Thierry Mugler, Trind, Usher, Valentino, Van Cleef & Arpels, Versace, Viktor & Rolf and last but not least Yves Saint Laurent.

I’ll be sure to let you know about any of my purchase experiences from Red Square and how the service is versus the service in the actual shops! Last time I visited Johannesburg, I had superb service at the Sandton City store!

Are you going to check out Red Square online?

Be sure to let me know your experiences, if they are before mine!

Breaking Dawn Part 1 Review (SPOILER ALERT!!!)

Hello Pouters! Did you go watch Breaking Dawn like me last night? What did you think?

Well, I must say that I was pleasantly surprised! I wasn’t expecting it to be half as good as it actually was. Or as graphic! If I’m not mistaken, the movie is PG13 and if I had rated it, I’d at least give it a 16… or then again, today’s 13 year olds aren’t quite as innocent as I was at 13 a million years back.

Anyway, the movie starts off with Bella and Edward’s wedding where she stood nervous infront of a crowd of people (and vampires, duh) wearing a gorgeous Carolina Herrera masterpiece. Trying to find a picture of the dress on the internet, however, is like looking for a half naked Mother Theresa, so I’ll add a photo as soon as I can find one.

To be quite frank, it was a very plain dress with a really gorgeous design at the back. I don’t think finding a dress more suited to Bella’s personality could have been possible. Her makeup, however, was a different story. She was supposed to be so “wow” and everyone (as usual) carried on like she was the most beautiful thing on earth, when she basically looked exactly the same with a little bit of smokey eye… wow… groundbreaking.

Anyway, then they go off to their honeymoon, Edward breaks the furniture and the pillows and impregnates his blushing bride who then starts getting so sick that she looks like anorexia with a swollen stomach. Here’s where I have to give the editors MAJOR credit. I was a bit disturbed by the way Bella looked. She was scarily thin and gaunt and it bugged me a little, like it should have. Then, in one scene where she bends to pick up a cup, her ribs crack and she almost plunders to the ground. That was really hectic. Then came the birth scene and the scene where she lay on the table with her lifeless, gaunt body.

Wait, was this movie really just PG13??

Anyway, I was crying in the cinema like a little baby, even though I knew what was going to happen. I’m a loser like that, forgive me.

So, yea, it was pretty good. I would give it 5 stars! Go see it! And take your boyfriend along, he won’t hate you, he just won’t dare admit how much he liked the movie!
It’s just such a pity Breaking Dawn Part 2 is only coming out in November 2012!


Have an awesome day Pouters!
Peace and Love xoxox
