Look of the Week: Gwen Stefani

Gwen Stefani gets me vote for Look of the Week. With her platinum hair, red lips and black sunglasses, she’s defined an iconic skater-girl-all-grown-up look which is still fresh and new every time she steps out.

A pop of colour like the stripe along her jeans and postman’s satchel will freshen a traditionally monochromatic look.

As the weather in Cape Town cools and with the weekend right here, recreate her look with items from your wardrobe and have fun with a pop of colour. Happy Friday.

TLC Facial Wipes Save Water Challenge

Simone from DTM, a marketing and events company, dropped off a pack of TLC Deep Cleanse Make Up Remover Facial Wipes this morning along with a dare to try saving seven litres of water per day. Drinking neat whiskey didn’t count.

40 wipes, twice a day @ 7 litres per wash. That’s a saving of 280 litres of water over 20 days. Sjoe! No pressure, Clouds.

Adcock Ingram, the makers and distributors of these wipes, have launched the summer TLC Save Water campaign by encouraging you to change one simple daily habit; which is to use a facial wipe instead of traditional cleanser and water. Continue reading

Look of the Week: Beyonce

Beyoncé gets my vote for Look of the Week. Stepping out in New York on Monday 19 March, she wore a navy blue fitted dress by Victoria Beckham.

The songstress was attending a fundraiser hosted by US First Lady, Michelle Obama at the Greenwich Hotel in Manhatten.

She accessorized with a two-strand necklace and strappy black sandals. Hair pulled back off a fresh face, striking lashes and a natural lip created a classic, sexy look for the songstress. Hard to believe that tiny waist hosted a baby until two months ago. Happy shopping.

I share a deep passion for denim jeans. My most indulgent pair is a dark wash bootleg by Victoria Beckham purchased from Harrods while on holiday about five years ago.  This is me being snapped by the paparazzi after just having purchase my prized possession.

Yes, I am famous. Even fellow pedestrians and the security guards viewing cctv footage via the security camera on the wall were looking at me. ok!

And here’s another pic to further illustrate how much denim loves me. I’d just won £10 pounds on quiz night at the Hansom Cab pub in Kensington, London after correctly answering that denim originated in France. Continue reading
