Review: Elizabeth Arden Great 8 Eight Hour Daily Defense Moisturiser SPF 35

Elizabeth Arden Great 8 Eight Hour Daily Defense Moisturiser SPF 35

Elizabeth Arden sent me a whack of goodies the other day and there have been a few stand outs. Firstly, you should know that their relaunched Beautiful Colour Natural Eye Brow Pencil is still a fave. Also, I’m really falling in love with Sunlit Showers, the latest incarnation of Sunflowers (full review coming soon). Today, […]

Review: Afari Brightening Elixir

My friend Margaux Knuppe has always been one of the most entrepreneurial people I know. At the age of 26, I was getting wrecked on Porn Star martinis at Asouka. Margs, however, was setting up her first company, Ruby Box. Fast forward a couple of years and now she’s just developed and launched her own […]

Review: Sorbet 365 Workout Barcelona skincare collection

(I’m still a big fan of their Salon Skin daily skin polish powder as it’s basically a dupe for Dermalogica’s brilliant but pricy Microfoliant.) They’ve expanded further, however, with a new line called 365 Workout Barcelona. Now, to be honest, I […]

Review: Kong Bar & Grill restaurant in Cape Town

I was still overseas when Kong Bar & Grill popped up in Green Point Cape Town, but it made enough noise to reach me. People were raving about the riblets… they were popping bottles of free bubbly on a Thursday… (more on that later) and their superstar DJ, Pete Larkin, is allegedly Cape Town’s finest. […]
