Vibe Trays – Interior Stylist Mood Boards

Editor's Picks, Haute Lifestyle
Building a home is as exciting as it is daunting. I’ve spent the most recent year experiencing the whole process. Being a creative at heart, I was very much involved from the design phase to the final wrap-ups. As much as it was energizing seeing it all come together, the procedure can be amazingly overwhelming for the most part. There’s such so much to ‘browse’ and ‘settle on’ like your shading palettes, finishes, lighting, furniture, soft furnishings and I’m just getting started. While investing hours on the web hunting down redesigned alternatives, suppliers, retailers and ideas, I chose to look to my most loved eminence decorator Kelly Wearstler for some inspiration. Having spent a few years working as an interior…

FILORGA Nutri-Filler Replenishing Cream

FILORGA Nutri-Filler Replenishing Cream

Anti Aging Skincare, Cult Beauty
I don’t like to call myself a dermal snob! But I am definitely picky when it comes to experimenting with brands and products. I like to bide my time, do my research and then slather creams and lotions over my face and body. After all, your skin is the largest organ of your body and you only have one sheath, with none to spare. But where Filorga is concerned, I am more than ready to drop my defenses and I eagerly started on my 30-day journey with the uber luxurious Nutri-Filler moisturizing day cream. Did I notice positive results? You bet! Let me describe my experience with what might be the most revolutionary beauty product of the year. WHY I…

FILORGA Detox Body Treatment

Anti Aging Skincare, Cult Beauty
Youth is so whimsical. So capricious! Is it not my lovelies? No one can grasp it for more than a few decades. And then the ravages of time start to become oh so evident. But a modern day fashionista wants to have her cake and eat it too. She loves partying into the wee hours of the night and enjoying the mouth-watering exotic delicacies that high living has to offer, without bloating of the waistline or sagging of the skin. She spend thousands of Rands on her precious face. But she completely forgets the scientifically proven fact that the first signs of ageing is usually noticeable on the hands and the neck. If a woman has a toned body that defies the…

Escada Joyful Moments Limited Edition – Eternally Bright

Escada Joyful Moments Limited Edition – Eternally Bright

Fragrances

As a connoisseur of fine fragrances, I do not tend to take to floral aromas with enthusiasm. I seek the exotic and the elusive. I love the balance of masculine notes and feminine coquetry. Alas perfumes that envelope you in the cloying sweetness of roses and lilies rarely live up to the depth and dimension I expect from epic concoctions.

But this one had me at first whiff. And I have to admit that Escada’s Joyful Moments is a class apart. Because it takes you down the memory lane with the comfortable familiarity of well-loved notes of yore but packs in just the right modern punch to steer clear of ‘tired and done’ territory. It teases your senses and keeps you guessing. Is it possible for naughty and nice to ever come together in an Eau De Parfum? I believe Joyful Moments embodies all the characteristics of that paradoxical, mythical scent.

Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue – Sunset in Salina will transport you to Paradise

Fragrances

Most fragrances end up emulating the freshness and rejuvenation of spring. But it takes a master’s touch to embrace the heat and passion of an Italian island in the heart of summer and present it without overpowering the wearer.

Simply because Sunset in Salina is an aromatic concoction from the house of Dolce & Gabbana, it achieves this goal, effortlessly!

Haute Scent – Gucci Bamboo

Fragrances

Gal Gadot’s million dollar legs and arched back had me at first glance. The teaser that heralds the birth of this new fragrance from the stalwart design house Gucci is intriguing and makes you want to hit the gym. Or the salon at the very least! To try and embody some of Gal’s effortless beauty! My expectations were high as I was looking forward to something exquisitely mysterious yet light and green. A difficult combination to hit…but its Gucci we are talking about.
