Chereen from ‘For The Beauty Of It’ pokes around my nightstand

My fellow beauty peep, Chereen Gibson, is the beauty editor at O magazine South Africa. Girl knows her stuff and has also started her own beauty blog; For The Beauty Of It

Nope, that's not a model in the shot, that's Chereen. Don't you think she looks like Jessie J?

She runs a regular feature called On My Nightstand where she gets hold of different beauty bloggers and asks them to reveal what beauty goodies they’ve got sitting right next to their bed. I was super-flattered to be last week’s chica.

I have OCD issues so yes, it really is that neat...

Thanks Chereen, you rock!

Dolce & Gabbana The One Sport EDT review

D&G have a new male fragrance on the shelves; Dolce & Gabbana The One Sport.

The D&G peeps describe it as a ‘fresh, clean fragrance with light and energetic top notes accompanied by an unmistakable Mediterranean aroma of rosemary, the freshness of water and saltiness of the sea’. Other notes include sequoia wood, cardamom, patchouli and musk. 

Dolce & Gabbana The One Sport

My boyfriend’s a big fan of Dolce & Gabbana’s original ‘The One’ for men; it’s one of his fave ‘evening scents’ along with Terre d’Hermes. Still, as he’s a regte egte sports freak, his ‘everyday’ colognes tend be lighter and fresher so D&G’s sporty new edition is right up his street. In fact, he likes it so much he pretty much forbid me to do my usual thing. You know… the thing where I run around spritzing random people to get their opinions on a scent. That wasn’t going to happen. He pretty much ripped the bottle from my grasp and stuck it pride of place on his toiletry shelf.  

Still, being a sneaky cow, I managed to sneak it out to a dinner and got as far as pulling it out of my handbag before he saw what I was doing and gave me The Face. You know… the one that looks like this:   

Needless to say, I put it down real fast.

But ja, like I said, I can’t give you a volley of opinions as Mike’s pretty much infatuated with it. And I really like it too. It really is a fresh yet sexy male scent. I also love that the bottle’s nice and ‘clean’-looking but super-heavy so it feels like an expensive lustable object. And on the subject of lustable objects please do yourself a favour and check out the ridiculously hot model boy, Adam Senn, in the TV commercial:

You’re welcome!

Want to give it a sniff yourself? You’ll find it in store as we ‘speak’. A 50ml bottle of the EDT will set you back R660 and alas, le buff model dude is not included…

Love, love
