    Sorbet Bare-Faced Foundation: Review

    This is my second foundation review. I have been experimenting with makeup for the past two years where I fully invested in makeup basics. I can proudly say I know how to beat my face for the gods.  I bought the Sorbet Bare-Faced foundation last year around September /October. Clicks had a beauty sale on almost all brands. I was in search of a new foundation and I opted for this one – the price influenced my purchase. It was sold for R130 (usually retails for 260). The Sorbet section at the local Clicks near my house was fairly new and I would always try out some products every time…

    Why it’s important to know your hair porosity

    I am a SUPERWOMAN

    I have had this song in mind the whole week and I was a bit sceptical to write about it because I think I have written a  similar post last year on women’s day. Superwoman by Alicia Keys is one of my feel-good songs. It always lifts up my spirit, it’s such an empowering song. It reminds me of the power instilled in me by my creator – God himself. Everything starts with him. We are today because of him. I believe we are one of his greatest creations, look how we go through everything- we feel too much, we birth kings and queens of the universe, we care too much…

    Why you need to start exfoliating your skin

    I’m sure exfoliating is not foreign to most of us. It is the deep cleansing of our skin, removing deep skin cells and leaving our face feeling clean and fresh. Exfoliating has been my favourite skincare step for years now. I have noticed how my skin reacts when I exfoliate and how it looks when I skip exfoliating. There is a huge difference. When I exfoliate I have a minimal breakout, almost zero appearance of blackheads and pimples. I exfoliate once a week for a good 5 minutes if my pimples are not that much and at least twice when my face has a mini breakout. When I don’t exfoliate…

    The importance of planning in our lives

    There is a popular saying that goes ”failing to plan is a plan to fail”. When you go about your everyday life with no plan of action you deviate from your life goals. The importance of planning cannot be overemphasized for an organization or even for an individual. From the start of a small business to managing a large business, from starting your own career to the last stages of your working life, planning will be the most important tool that you use in your life. Planning doesn’t have to be anything hectic. You can start off by writing down your yearly goals, break them down to your quarterly goals,…
