June favourites

So my birth month has come and gone and that makes me sad. I am also 25. That makes me even sadder. 😉

Also, this post is a bit late and I tried out a different backdrop for the products. I prefer plain white to be honest, but anyway, since it was my birthday this month I got a couple of gifts that I loved and it will be making up some of my favourites.


Guess handbag

Mr. S got me a stunning black Guess bag as part of my birthday gift. I almost feel too sorry for it to use it daily because it’s so gorgeous. And it matches my black heart. 😉

Jay Jays jacket

An early birthday gift from Mr. S. It’s really warm and I’ve been wearing it constantly.

Woolworths ring

Thank you to my friend Natasha for giving me this ring. I love the colours of the gems and I honestly don’t have anything else quite like it.


MAC goodies

My friends know me all too well. I got MAC lipglosses and a lipstick from two of my friends and I really love it. Thanks Jenni and Marelie!!! ❤ I also Instagrammed a picture.

Dior foundation

Again something Mr. S got me. I’ll do a full review on it later.

Rimmel Scandal Eyes in Bluffing

I’ve had this for a while but I couldn’t find a damn eyeliner sharpener that was big enough to sharpen the pencil until recently. I got an Essence one at Dis-Chem and since buying that I’ve been using the eyeshadow pencil every single day. It’s a nice neutral bronzey colour that is perfect for work and even when you’re out about on the town.


Nico & Vinz – Am I wrong?

A lovely song. I particularly like singing along to the “Oh yeah yeah yeah yeah” part. 😉

OOTD: Christmas Day 2014

We’re all still enjoying a bit of Christmas cheer (except when you get stuck in the bathroom) and possibly looking forward to New Year’s Eve, and with that said, here’s what I wore on Christmas Day:


I didn’t exactly go the traditional route with a red, green or golden ensemble. I opted rather for this little purple number that I’ve had for years now. I love this skater dress, because it’s flattering and I personally think skater dresses suit most body types and it’s just classy in a ’50s kind of way. 🙂 If you’re wondering why I’m dressed so summery, it’s because the weather on Christmas Day looked like this:


Where I got everything I’m wearing

Dress: Jay Jays

Belt: Forever New

Shoes: Steve Madden

Christmas tree earrings: Accessorize

Ridiculous yellow thing around my neck: Checkers (My brother got these for everyone to wearat the table)

July favourites

Almost Spring!

Almost Spring!

Wow, my apologies for being super late with this one! These past two weeks have truly been weeks that I don’t want over again, but that’s really a post for another day.

My favourites for this month is going to be fairly short and sweet. Le’ go!


DKNY Golden Delicious

Wawaweewa! I’ve been using DKNY Be Delicious perfume for quite a while now and I only recently bought this bottle of golden greatness a week ago on a serious special, but I love it! The smell is just fantastic and the packaging is amazing. Top notch.

The Vitamin E range from The Body Shop

I bought the Vitamin E Aqua Boost Sorbet and the matching night cream. I ended up only using the night cream and giving the Aqua E Boost Sorbet to mister S who initially complained about the pinkness, but he got over it and is now using it. He loves it and his skin does too.

Cotton On socks

They are ridiculous, but I love them.

Jay Jays head band

I’ve had it for a while now, but it’s recently been icy so I’ve been wearing this to keep my ears warm and it really makes a difference!


I really love this shop. They have the cutest accessories. I was there last week with my mom and I ended up buying hair bows (pictured above).


Breakfast at Tiffany’s

Everyone’s heard of this iconic movie, but how many people have actually watched it? I downloaded it (yay for piracy) and I really loved it! It really is such a classic and sweet movie. Two hours long though, but worth it.


Yankee Candle Vanilla Cupcake

Apparently this is Yankee Candle’s bestseller and I’m not surprised. It smells exactly like a freshly baked batch of cupcakes. I was feeling a little down and when I opened one of my bags one night, it was carefully hidden inside. Mister S is just a real sweetheart, isn’t he?


Wimpy coffee mug

Wimpy has a special with one of their breakfasts at the moment. When you order the breakfast you get an adorable mug with it. There are so many to choose from, but I liked this one with the lipstick mark the most.


Hazelnut lattes

Hi, my name is Carina and I’m addicted to hazelnut lattes.

The fact that my best friend is back in town

My best friend in the entire world went to South Korea last year for work and she came back last week Monday. Words can’t describe how happy I am to have her around the corner from my house again. Welcome back, Jen! ❤
