Fashion’s Favourite – The Bomber Jacket

Fashion Trends
It doesn’t matter which stalwart sparked your fancy! It might have been the slender yet impressive frame of Olivia Palermo rocking it with towering stilettos. Or it might have been the wiry and taut body of Mick Jagger poured into its loving embrace. One thing is for sure! If you are obsessed with bomber jackets – you are on to something. Because judging by their growing street style popularity and the homage paid by the Autumn/Winter runways, these humble and nostalgic war mementoes are here to rule.

FILORGA Hand-Absolute® Ultimate Rejuvenating Hand & Nail Cream

FILORGA Hand-Absolute® Ultimate Rejuvenating Hand & Nail Cream

Anti Aging Skincare, Pigmentation and Radiance
When it comes to first impressions, it’s no doubt that your hands can speak a thousand words. I’m sure all fashion conscious women will agree that hands are the real wonderland. But ironically and unfortunately our precious hands fall victim to the earliest onslaught of ageing. The knuckles turn dark and grainy. The triumphant splendour of our beloved talons is cut short! And naturally, the palms become rough and papery. Long before your facial wrinkles bemoan the loss of skin elasticity, your hands blow the secret. FILORGA Hand-Absolute® TO THE RESCUE: Where effectiveness and an excellent blending of natural extracts with top of the line ingredients are concerned, Filorga is the master. I know, I’ve proclaimed so before, but here’s…

FASHION REVOLUTION WEEK 2016

FASHION REVOLUTION WEEK 2016

Fashion
The confidence fashion offers is priceless. It has the power to put a spring in your step, a glint of delight in your eyes and make your heart race (think about that pair of heels you’ve been lusting over). Its value cannot always be expressed in Rands and Dollars. We live in a world that is Fashion Obsessed but rarely do fashion influencers, and fashion lovers stop and ask the question, ‘Who made my clothes?’  And by ‘who’, we are not referring to the luxe couture brands and the prêt-à-porter providers. We are not talking about the names that grace your labels. We are trying to peel the sartorial onion and reach the heart of the fashion supply chain. We want…

FASHION & INTERIORS Deep Blue Mediterranean Magic

Fashion, Haute Lifestyle

You may recognise the iconic, vibrant blue majolica prints from Dolce & Gabbana’s Sicilian-inspired 2016 Pre-Fall collection. The intricate cobalt blue paired with crisp whites are undeniably captivating and looks great on any silhouette. The beauty of this Mediterranean blue is that it translates beautifully in your wardrobe and interiors. “The highly intricate motifs, their significance as a tangible representation of the cultural melting pot that is the Mediterranean basin, and their centuries-old craftsmanship strike a cord with the values of the Italian fashion house.” – Dolce & Gabbana   {All Images © Polyvore}…

Is The Slow Blogging Movement for you?

Fashion
If you’ve been following this blog for a while, you would have noticed that I’ve seriously cut down on my published content during the past year. I found myself intently focused and completely absorbed by a monumental creative project that kept me very busy for most of 2015. So, to manage my time more efficiently, I decided to join the slow blogging movement. This change initiated a turning point for me as an author, content curator and digital influencer and it’s something I’ve wanted to share with new bloggers. Before I proceed, let us tip our hats to the inimitable Todd Sieling, who predicted that blogging would eventually evolve into a rushed practice, executed with a sense of urgency and…
