Eyelash extensions have been on my to do list for a long time. I love the look of thick lashes. Who doesn’t? Full lashes can create a romantic depth to the eyes. Also, if you have small eyes like me they can accentuate the shape and make them look more prominent.
On my second trip to Hong Kong, I found myself having some free time to visit the places I didn’t get to first time round. Hong Kong isn’t big, but it is full of life and plenty to do. Seeing as there was no rush to be anywhere and the weather in May is perfect, I decided to visit the Wong Tai Sin Temple. It’s one of Hong Kong’s most visited temples, with a beautiful garden, pagodas and many smaller temples within the complex. What drew me to it was the beautiful colours, architecture and bright décor.
Summer is undoubtedly my fave season in Cape Town. The weather is hot, and we are spoilt for choice by the many beaches around this beautiful peninsula.

So, I have put together 5 key womenswear trends that I think will be over Cape Town city this summer 2017/18.
So I’m still a bit Jeju obsessed. My Spring weekend on the amazing volcanic island of South Korea has left me daydreaming of it even more, now that the hot sticky summer of Korea has hit the country full force.
The Leeum Museum has been on on my museum list for a while. Before, me and my friend were always too busy to visit and then I left Korea.. Now, that I had returned the opportunity to finally visit the museum was a must. So on a rainy public holiday, these two art lovers set out to fulfil our museum goal.
Hongdae is one of Seoul’s busiest and most popular nightlife and entertainment areas. It also has had a large tourist attraction over the last ten years and many love it’s bohemian and youthful vibe.

Over my years living in Seoul, I have always heard about the famous Dragon Hill Spa in Yongsan-gu, Seoul. On doing a search, I saw beautiful interiors with multi-levels of spas offering a a variety of treatments. I got a bad knot in my trapeze muscle, and decided to treat myself to a good massage at the ultimate jimjilbang in Seoul after my Korean class.
In 2011, I went to the Hello Kitty and Friends’ convention in Seoul. Cute characters are serious business in Asian countries, and Korea is not an exception. Practically, everything can be made into a cute character much to my delight. It’s also appreciated and enjoyed by both adults and children.
I haven’t done a beauty post in a while. In fact, I have been slacking off on doing posts over the last few months. However, I am trying to make 1 post a week from this year on! As you all know, I love goodies from Korea. Shopping for make-up and beauty products is an amazing experience.
