SA Health Blog hosts a ‘fabulosity’ party

If you’re on the Cape Town party circuit you’ll know Emma King AKA The Tooth Fairy. Chica’s whitened up the smiles of half of Cape Town (including mine) and has now started her own health blog, SA Health Blog.

Emma with celeb PR Clayton Morar. Emma’s wearing her Saving Private Rhino dress made from re-usable shopping bags that won her an award at the J&B Met earlier this year.

To create awareness for her new site, she threw a little ‘Fabulosity’ party the other day at the DeWaterkant health & dentisty centre* where she works. It was a nice opportunity for a few of the site’s advertisers and sponsors to mix and mingle while showing off some of their wares, like Link Pharmacy for example:

You know you’re in for a partytjie when they offer you free liver supplements at the door…

Guests got to sip on Louisvale wine’s Stone Road range and I was quite impressed with their Merlot which is very much an easy drinking red.

Ripe, plummy and medium bodied, this 2011 tasted more mature than it’s vintage.

Roxy Louw was a guest and, as it turns out she’s a bit of a wine fundi. She impressed the shizz out of me by asking all sorts of super-technical questions.

What do mean it’s got ‘firm tannins?’ Is that like a new self-tan that won’t rub off?!

Of all the health brands I got to interact with, I was most impressed by Link Pharmacy. They’ve recently launched a new ‘own brand‘ line that includes supplements, first aid must-haves and basic beauty essentials like cotton pads and aqueous cream all at prices that won’t break the bank.

This tissue oil, for example, was around the R30 mark.

I was also thrilled to see The Body Shop girls were out and about and spent a bit of time indulging in their body butter display.

Mmm Satsuma… this one always reminds me of Karis Piss, it’s her favourite.

The store will also be running a new campaign that ‘gives back’ as of the 20th of August with the sale of a new vitamin C-enriched Dragon Fruit lip butter.

The Body Shop Dragon Fruit lip butter.

They’ve listed nine different organisations in three different categories that reflect their key values and you can vote for your favourite in each category on their Facebook page. The three that get the most votes will receive a portion of the proceeds of the lip butter.

Another beauty brand I got to ‘play’ with? Veaudry hair styling tools. They’re a line of salon-quality hair stylers (think straighteners and curlers) use Tourmaline technology to produce negative ions that seal your hairs cuticle super-tight to ensure a shiny-looking finish. I was quite taken with this baby:

Veaudry’s MyCurl curling rod, R1790

To learn more about it, visit their site over here. I see that you can buy their products online and delivery, if you spend over R600, is free!

Oh! And while we’re on the subject of hair; how awesome is Jasna’s AKA Fashion Jazz’s new do?

Thick, full, long… tres mooi.

To look at her, you’d never guess that she was wearing clip-in hair extensions from Clipinhair! She says she’s v impressed and will be putting a full review up on her site in the next few days.

After filling up on waaay too many Nando’s chippetjies, Clouds and I said our good byes as we had to run off to the GQ Glamour Craig Port Cape Town Fashion Week after party (Sjoe! How’s that for a mouthful?! More about that little bash in the next post…)

Thanks Emma, we had fun!

Love, love

*For the record, DeWaterkant Health is the glammest practice I’ve ever visited and looks more like an aesthetic spa than a doctor’s office. I always just assumed their prices would be terrifying yet recently discovered that their darling dentist, Dr Mark Bowes, is almost half the price of the one I’ve been throwing money at for the last four years! Thus, I’ll be getting an Invisalign-style treatment there over the next few months to sort out my overbite dramz and will be sure to tell you all about it in another post later on this month.
