Hi Christmas Lovelies,

Gift shopping for the most important people in your life can be a bit tricky sometimes, so I’ve come up with a list of goodies that might inspire you. Happy Christmas shopping!

xmas 2015.1



If your bestie/sister/mom doesn’t find time to pamper herself with regular facials at a salon or at home, get her REN’s Flash Rinse 1 Minute Facial (6). It’s a powerful yet gentle mini-facial that exfoliates and deep cleans skin. Everyone has one minute to spare, and this product makes the most of those 60 seconds! Available here for R525.

For the girl who loves makeup, an eyeshadow that can be used as a base or on its own will be a welcome gift. MAC’s Vintage Selection Paint Pot (7) is a beautiful soft rose gold shade and works perfectly alone or under neutral eye shades. Available from MAC stores or online here for R230.

Every girl needs rockstar makeup brushes and Real Techniques (4) offer a wide range of amazing brushes that perform perfectly. They range from R129 to R199 and are available at Takealot and Foschini. My picks are the Multitask brush, the Expert Face brush, the Setting brush, the Contour brush and the Powder brush.


I like Estée Lauder Modern Muse, love Modern Muse Chic and adore Modern Muse Rouge (3). It’s a beautiful and seductive take on the original fragrance with the welcome addition of rose. New notes include Bulgarian Rose, Rose Centifolia Firabs, Raspberry, Pink Pepper and Vanilla Madagascar SFE. If you haven’t experienced this fragrance, you definitely want to. You might even end up buying it for yourself! The 30ml goes for R795 and you can get it here.


When you get home after a long day at work, all you want to do is get out of your work wear and into something comfy. Enter Loungewear. It gives you comfort and also makes you look and feel pretty. These Cotton On Bralettes (1) are fab for some downtime, or for sleeping in. They come in a range of different colours and styles, and start at R149. Matching undies available too, because it just wouldn’t feel right.

Nude has become ever popular. For the bestie/sister/friend who has everything, get her a nude faux leather skirt from Superbalist (8) for R399 here. Being a neutral, this skirt can be paired with just about any colour combination. Think a loose, round neck navy short sleeved blouse with some nude strappy sandals or a crop top and some killer pointy stilettos. The options are endless. 

Aldo Accessories have released a ‘gold plated’ collection with lots of lust worthy items including rings, earrings and necklaces. My pick is the initial necklace (2), a steal at just R199.

Bag styles have exploded, and you can really express yourself with accessories. Staying in the neutral palette, this Cut Out Flap Crossbody Bag from Woolworths (5) (R275) is super versatile and chic. I know I say it a lot, but you can literally pair nude with anything. Dress it up with a pencil skirt and heels and down with ripped skinnies and flats. You can grab one here.
