G-Star Raw Jeans

Last night I attended the G-star Spring/Summer 2015 Launch Campaign #TightORWide hosted at Truth. Transforming TRUTH Coffee House in the heart of Cape Town’s vibrant CBD into a #TightOrWide gallery exhibition and club. It was an absolutely awesome evening filled with loads of awesome people wearing beautiful denims.
I mean it’s really crazy to think that majority of our wardrobe consists of denims and that it has become one of the must have items in your closet. If you don’t own a pair of denims, are you even human? Lol
For their Spring/Summer ’15 campaign, G-Star RAW has captured this essence of jeans and expressed it through their diverse range of styles and fits. Enlisting Ellen von Unwerth for its photography, a natural fit in itself with her affinity for denim and forte with the female subject, the campaign is carried into the online using a slogan-hashtag combination, “Wear it 
I started my evening with the awesome photobooth that they had set up and ofcourse myself and my buddy Crystal was having a ball of a time snapping away. You can view those pictures on either my FB or Instagram page.The campaign launch event was complemented with a combination of live DJ performances by Grant Marshall of Massive Attack, a.k.a. DJ Daddy G and local DJ pH. 
Notable guests of the evening included Katlego Maboe, Loyiso Bala, Liezel van der Westhuizen, Siv Ngesi, Jimmy Nevis and Anton Jeftha.
The theme of the evening was based on “How you wear your denims? Tight or Wide, well I am very much a tight girl, the tighter the denim the better.
 The evening sprung off with awesome snacks, drinks and great conversation with fellow media personnel & bloggers. kinda people!
Big Thanks to Vivid Luxury for having me.

Essie + Rebbeca Minkoff

 To all the Essie Lovers I’m excited to let you all know about the new GLOBAL COLOR DESIGNER.
Rebecca Minkoff: fashion designer, press darling, NY “it” girl, color addict and obsessied.
Rebecca Minkoff will be coming up with Essie’s colors and inspiration for each season. Dubbed “Flowerista,” her first collection was inspired by the vibrant hues of flowers and fashion photographer Nick Knight’s floral photomanipulations. I was really excited to be able to have tried 2 of the Essie colors.

Lolipop: This colour is by far my favourite; it’s such a vibrant shade of red. I used one coat and the colour immediately looked the perfect shade.

Dj play that song: This colour is really trendy and beautiful on any skin tone. Every stroke of the paint brush, is flawless. Such a great summer option. 
I must say that this has been my first time using an Essie Polish. I know clearly I've been living under a rock! The quality of this polish is out of this world and I loved the fact that it dried almost in an instant. So may I add, my nails have no smudges whatsoever? Trust me, this very rarely happens.

Foschini Fashion Friends

So you might have heard this concept “Foschini Fashion Friends” more than once on either my facebook, twitter or instagram page and I have had so many inbox's and emails asking me what this term is actually about?

"A Fashion Friend is a Foschini Brand Ambassador, tasked with the role of sharing with, teaching and learning from women in South Africa, empowering more confidence and positivity to those women around you"

Well I thought I’ll do a post seeing that last week I got to spend 3 nights with the Fashion Friends and it really was amazing.
Some of the Fashion Friends which resides all around SA flew down to Cape Town for the Fabulous Fashion Friends shoot. We all met up at the Double Tree by Hilton hotel which we stayed for a couple of days. The 2days on shoot was so much fun and really hard work at the same time. Who knew so much went into taking that perfect picture? However it has been an amazing couple of days so I have compiled a few pictures of our stay for your enjoyment.

Well I won’t be able to give you guys a sneak peak of the pictures of the actual shoot. Where will the fun be in that? The pictures can be seen in all Foschini Stores from the 16th of April 2015. How cool is that?
