The lovely lovelies over at Pretty 24/7 dug around in my messy make up bag to find out what keeps me looking not-hideous.
Here’s an excerpt:
All-time favourite fragrance?
There can be only one: Thierry Mugler, Alien. Yummy.
And fragrance of the moment?
I’m quite enjoying Dior Addict to Life.
Who is your beauty icon?
It pains me to say (because I think her voice is dreadful), but I’m going to have to go with Rihanna. We have a similar shaped face and skin tone and she’s completely taught me that colour is my friend. I was always scared of short hair/ lipstick/ colourful eye make up until Miss RiRi showed us all that gutsy beauty can be gorgeous.
Favourite SA designer and why?
Oooh! This changes all the time, but right now I’m loving Thula Sindi. His creations are feminine, classic, modern, sassy… And I’m honoured to call him my friend.
Thanks for the little profile, Lauren!
I’m such an Amber fan-girl, so this is officially the highlight of my week. Thanks for the love, Amber.
Mika posted some pictures from Tshepo’s pyjama party on his blog and included a piccie of Mokgadi and I.
Here’s what he said about our ‘pj’s’:
Social Butterflies, Janine and Mokgadi obviously didnt get the invite… It was a Pyjama party… they arrived in little LBD’s… (Little Black/Blue Dresses…) When I asked them, why? They replied, “This is what we sleep in”…
I must say, I loved their little dresses, but I would have loved them much more if they were in their pyjama’s…
Next time we’ll wear our oversized freebie t-shirts, doeks and old PT shorts. Just for you, Mika!

Mika and I made it onto Man of Cloth. Nice meeting you, Marco!
I might be a tad biased, given that I know Shannon Smith from our Fairlady magazine days, but I’m enjoying Pretty 24/7 sooo much.
My love of beauty products is well documented, so no wonder I adore the site, right? Pretty 24/7 is an independent, beauty-focused website, run by editors Shannon and Daniela Massenz and a cluster of leading industry professionals.
You can expect everything from product reviews, make up tutorials (yay!), directories for spas and salons and real in depth beauty related journalism.
And, if there’s one beauty expert I’d trust my skin, hair and cosmetics issues with, it’s Shannon. She’s super professional and undoubtedly one one of South Africa’s leading editorial beauty experts.
I stumbled across this blog, CIAAFRIQUE, quite recently and I immediately fell head-over-heels in love with it.
It’s run by Ciaa, from Mali, who currently lives in Toronto. She was inspired to start her blog because she struggled to find information about African designers and fashion online.
I visit CIAAFRIQUE for updates on African fashion, models, stylists and editorials. It also has these cute ‘Inspired by Africa’ posts and Polyvore inspiration boards.
