Drinky-poos with Dermalogica and Longevity. Keen to join?

When I was little and teachers used to ask me what I wanted to be when I grew up, I didn’t hesitate in answering ‘Miss South Africa’. I totally thought it was a regte, egte occupation and that once you’d won, you’d kinda become the Queen of SA and get to reign supreme in gowns and crowns until you died (v. glamorously) on a four-poster bed in a double story house (the height of awesomeness for an eight year old.) As I grew up, the reality of the situation became a little clearer and I settled for less lofty goals… like learning how to make beachy-looking waves with my ghd…

Anyway, on the 9th of this month I’m going to get to schmingle with my childhood heroes, former Miss SA’s like Amy Kleinhans and Kerishnie Naicker, at the Longevity mag/Dermalogica Beauty Through the Ages charity cocktail event at the glamtastical Table Bay hotel at the V&A.

Nineteen years since nabbing the crown and Amy's still a hottie. Respect.

For R220, you’ll get to knock back a few cocktails, indulge in delish canapes and enjoy a talk from various former local beauty queens that range from in those in their 20’s to their 60’s. Better yet, the proceeds go to Dermalogica’s FITE foundation, a charity that gives micro loans to women in need to help them set up their own businesses. Then, when they pay it back, they re-invest it in the initiative.

If you buy FITE-branded Dermalogica products you can help contribute to the cause.

So, let’s have a little recap, shall we?

What: Longevity/Dermalogica Beauty Through the Ages charity cocktail bash
Where: Table Bay Hotel
When: 9th of November, 6pm
Cost: R220 (all proceeds will be donated to Dermalogica’s FITE)

To  snap up a ticket, call Sylvia on (011) 784 8112 or e-mail admin@zebrasquare.co.za

According to Jill Groger, the PR who’s helping to organise the bash, the goodie bags are ‘set to thrill’. (Woop, woop!)

See you there girls,

Fairlady Best of Beauty awards 2012

Spotted the new November issue of Fairlady on the shelves yet?

Oh to have hair like Amanda Seyfried...

I’m keen to get my hands on it myself so I can check out the full list of winners for their Best of Beauty awards.I like that they picked both a ‘luxury’ and ‘bargain’ winner for each catagory – fabe for retrencho-gals like me. Having tried many of the goodies they’ve lauded, I can vouch for their fabulosity, but they do include the odd ‘Really? How did that happen?’ surprise. For example, Calvin Klein Beauty, possibly the most boring fragrance on the shelves right now, is one of their top five summer scents…

Anyway, having had a squiz at some of the winners online, I’m now keen to check out a BaByliss Paris Pro 2200 hair dryer, R349,99, as I’ve been looking for a new one for ages.

You can find BaByliss hair dryers at Clicks, in case you were wondering...

I’m also happy to see Malee Verdure hydrating body scrub, R185, got listed in their best local goodies catagory. I was given one to try earlier this year and it really was tres impressive.

Love how this smells like a walk through a field of freshly-cut grass.

Wanna check out the winner’s online? Pop on over here. If you buy the mag, however, you could stand a chance to win all the Best of Beauty products featured. Nice…
