Too Tulle To Be True

To thine own self be tulle!

I love skirts and my latest obsession is tulle skirts. After seeing a fellow blogger publish the most gorgeous image of her in a tulle skirt I knew that it was just what my wardrobe was in need of.

I couldn’t find a tulle skirt anywhere, so instead of seeking far and wide, I kept it pretty much close to home, no really, next door to be precise. My neighbour is an awesome dressmaker and managed to pull this beauty off.

Along with the skirt, I wore crop top with vest underneath and a black leather jacket. The look was perfect for day and all I did was swap out my beloved flats for some heels and I was ready to take on the night at the Rubybox event with Kealin, Jade of Just Jade Blog, Qaanita of Paperdolls Diary and Zaitoen.

Enough chit chat? Have a look at what I wore…

PIPP Winners

I thought that announcing the winners of a Friday would make the weekends of the lucky, hardworking ladies of PIP a great weekend and as I counted, over and over, I realized just how close it was but there can only be 3 so let’s raise a make-up brush, eyelash curler and mascara wand to the first winners of Painting In Pink… well done to…


August Rubybox

Another month, another Rubybox. After seeing the video of what to expect I was counting the days till when I got to unbox this months Ruby!


I received an awesome collection this month which included Paula’s Choice Moisture Boost Hydrating Treatment Cream, Stila Lip Glaze, Africology Body Butter, African Extracts Hand & Nail Cream and Crabtree & Evelyn eau de toilette in Rosewater.


Paula’s Choice – moisture Boost Hydrating Treatment Cream for Normal to Dry Skin is AH-MAZE! I tried it this morning and it left my skin soft and moisturized. I’ve got dry skin, no seriously, my forehead is a flaking mess at times and I’m convinced that I’ve finally found the miracle to turn it all around. Non-greasy on the skin and moisture locking formula is this girls dream. After washing my face I love to give my skin some time to breath and just acclimate with what’s happening and then apply a basic moisturizer or sunblock but this morning Paula was my only choice and honey I’m never looking back. Thank you Rubybox for this awesome treatment!
