Emmys Go Yellow

Pin It Now!

I always love watching the Oscars especially the red carpet to see which actress got it "wrong" in the eyes of the media....usually these are the ones I think got it right...remember Bjork's swan dress? I thought it was fab.

I just find some of the dresses are so boring and I'm not a fan of those who play it safe...give me quirky any day. 

So, after looking at the pictures from the recent Emmy Awards I think alot of the dresses were once again quite boring but I did notice how many actresses wore yellow. Yay for them! Yellow is one of my favourite colours and can sometimes be a difficult colour to wear but these all got it right on the night. 

Hope you're having a good week and not getting to wet in the monsoon we're having.

Italian Wedding

Pin It Now!

We were at a wedding recently in the beautiful town of Arezzo in Tuscany of one of my best friends from South Africa. It was an amazing couple of days spent with friends we hadn't seen in a long time. The venue was beautiful, the food was incredible and well the bride, groom and guests weren't too shabby either! The only complaint is that the time goes too quickly and before you know it you're heading home. I wore a dress from Zara.  I don't own any maxi dresses but saw this one in the sale and thought it would be perfect for a wedding in the Tuscan countryside.

Lush 'Charity Pot' of Loveliness

Pin It Now!

Everytime I go into Lush I find it so hard to resist not eating some of their lotions and potions. They all smell so gorgeous...especially their freshly made face masks.
They now tell me they have a new range of luxurious hand and body lotions called Charity Pot, where "ALL proceeds (minus the VAT) go to grass root groups working in areas such as conservation, green transport, environmental issues, animal welfare and protection and human rights." 

Charity Pot is made using Fairtrade organic cocoa butter and almond oil and promises to leave skin soft and smooth...hmmm....yum. It's also quite reasonably priced at €8.95 for 95g / €16.85 for 240g. Not only will you be soft, smooth and smelling lovely but you'll also be helping some good causes. 

Have you tried it yet?
