Matte Lip Love

Lover of the matte lip trend? Make sure you have these must-have sidekicks to keep your lips in lovable condition:

Lush Cosmetics Bubblegum Lip Scrub [R105]

Use lip scrub before matte lippy application to prep and get those babies super smooth. I also tend to use this baddie after a long day/night of wearing a matte lip.

Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water [R89]
Remove that stubborn matte pigment with ease and leave your lips and face feeling refreshed.

Eucerin Aquaphor [R109] To repair and keep my lips super soft and ready for the next application!

The Pudding Shop

The Pudding Shop, Joburg’s hidden gem is tucked away on 7th Avenue next to its sister restaurant (another FAVE of mine) La Cucina di Ciro. An unspoiled little spot for intimate birthday parties, special occasions or small scaled events it is delightful from the food to the d├ęcor to the warm smiles that come along with the impeccable service.

A little piece of heaven and a slice of the most devilishly decadent organic dark chocolate cake I was left beaming!

Elle Magazine SA hosted a new and never been done before #ELLEPopUpOffice from the 3-5th May 2016. Basically a virtual “pop-up style” office where Elle lovers from everywhere were welcome to attend any or all of the three fabulous days featuring everything and anything you wanted to know regarding #ELLE. The cherry on top, exclusive fashion & beauty master classes with Dermalogica, ESSIE, Urban Decay,Fashion Trend Talk with Tarry Oppel(Fashion Director of Elle), Live interview with Rich Mnisi a Google talk, yoga class, the Elle version of the amazing race and the final evening where the ELLE’s Style Reporter 2016 winner was crowned.

I attended Day 1 and it was absolutely enthralling from meeting the #ElleTeam to being given insider tips from the Google expert, to chatting with local “FAB” designer Rich Mnisi it was a breath of fresh air and any fashion crazed girl or guy’s world. I had serious #FOMO knowing that my eventful schedule would keep me away from the two days that followed but all in all a fantastic concept and what a pleasure meeting such warm friendly faces the #ElleBelles are just darling.
