Win with The Lunchbox – snack packs for a whole month!

It’s back to school for Cara tomorrow and that means that I still have to go do snack shopping after work today. I completely forgot over the weekend! Are you in the same boat? Well, The Lunchbox can come to your rescue. Being a parent in this day and age is already stressful enough. What with having to keep up with the Pinterest parents’ fancy healthy rainbow sandwiches, and don’t even mention the social media judgement! If all moms had the time, we could all be that domestic goddess! Thankfully The Lunchbox has come to rescue us from our mediocrity. With 21 pre-packed snack packs, it now takes mom (or dad) literally 45 seconds in the morning to prep two kids’ lunches for the day. This means, if you want to, I can use that extra time to catch up on sleep, try a new hairstyle on your daughter’s waist-length hair, expand on the usual peanut butter sarmies, or make sure that the kids actually brush each and every tooth! Each pack consists of three food items and one drink. Valued at under R33 per pack, this is also a huge saving, both on your pocket and time. Gone are the days of rushing around on a Sunday night, or waking up in a panic on Thursday morning when you realise that all the fruit bars are gone. The Lunchbox recommends keeping a few packs in the car for the inevitable moans of hunger during the afternoon school runs. It’s said you have to pay for convenience, but with no delivery fee, it will feel as though you reaping...

Bronx Woman – #ItsSoMe Boots

This season Bronx has yet again created an amazing collection of must-have boots that are on trend, affordable and comfortable. I have been a Bronx Woman fan for as long as I can remember and this year’s line of #ItsSoMe boots is most definitely me. Bronx Woman – #ItsSoMe Boots Designed to keep women looking good and feeling great during the cool weather, the collection features a beautiful cut-away ankle boot, rugged yet feminine ‘work boots’, sleek ankle boots, biker styles, knee-high boots and the Bronx Woman favourite, the Westee. “We know women want to look their best and feel confident as they take on their day” says Wayne Roos, head designer for Bronx Woman. “Our women’s footwear combines beauty and comfort, and women look feminine and stylish whether it’s on the school run, in the workplace or while they’re exploring our beautiful country.” I have two pairs of Bronx boots that I utterly adore. To be honest, I haven’t really worn anything else this entire season! First up is my black pair of Rhiannon boots. My heart skipped a beat when I laid eyes on the stunning zip and stud detail. Plus, I can wear these boots in 1 of 2 ways, depending on my mood. Love!! Rhiannon retails for R899. I also have a pair of Bronx Rafa boots in brown, and I love them. I get so many compliments when I wear these beauties. What do you think? Rafa, how do I love thee? Well, so much that I also want you in black. Rafa retails for R949. My Bronx wish list seems to be never-ending...

I had my eyebrows microbladed!

Microblading has been the buzzword over the last couple of years and when the kind people at Skin and Body Renewal asked me if I wanted to try it out, my answer was HELL YEAH! Microblading Microblading is an eyebrow enhancing procedure where tiny scratches are made in the skin using a manual handheld tool that implants permanent makeup pigments into the upper layers of the skin. The aim is to create hair-like strokes that mimic natural hairs to give you fuller-looking brows and/or alter the shape of your brows. I only learned exactly how microblading is done a day before my procedure. That tells you a lot about the faith I have in Skin and Body Renewal, hey? From my experience, all Skin and Body Renewal staff and therapists are highly trained and skilled, so I wasn’t very stressed. But I strongly advise that you do not make the decision to have your brows done without doing your research. It is still a tattoo. On your face!! And it’s permanent. You want to make a 100% sure that the person you entrust with your brows, knows what they are doing. I’ve seen a few Youtube videos where people DIY this procedure at home… rather save your money and have it done by a professional. I beg you! Today I want to answer a few questions you may have and also show you my before and after pics that were taken on the day of my first procedure. My touch-up is scheduled for 12 August and after that’s healed completely, I will do another post with pics. I had my eyebrows microbladed! On...
