In it were the following items;

  • Revlon Love her madly fragrance
  • 2 Revlon Ultra HD Matte lip color in two different shades
  • Revlon Ultimate all in one mascara

Labello packaging

Few days I go I received this lovely attractive Labello package from Ruby box which I have qualified for to review after feeling in their survey.

Packaging: It came in this curved shape packaging in pink with blackberries, it is very nice and eye catching. Not forgetting bold word with a picture  Thando Tsekiso who is an ambassador for this product. It has a maroon/white lip balm container.

Scent: Is fruity that of a blackberry, one would swear it’s consumable due to the scent power it has.

It’s glossy, blackberry maroon in color 4,5g

Received were three lip balms to share with friends who are going to review it as well I hope they like it as much as I do!

This lovely lip balm moisturizes my lips for longer while giving it color and shine.

Labello has a slogan for this product which is BE BOLD #BringOutYourBold

I must not forget to say that Labello is also running a competition where one must send a WhatsApp picture of their boldness to number provided inside the packaging for a chance to win a share of R50 000.00 worth in shopping spree.

Beauties if you haven’t got it as yes be sure you buy it from stockiest like Checkers, Pick n Pay and dischem for less than R50.00.

Sun those lips while the sun shines on you!

My Impulse expression

I received a box from RUBY BOX to share, try out and review.ctwo1h2wiaajdpk

To be quiet honest I’ve never bought myself an Impulse body spray but once for my daughter, I was quiet surprised after testing the sprays sent by Ruby box that it’s not bad after all but smell so lovely with floral scents which are my favorite.

Impulse- Dynamique body spray 75ml

A blend of musky vanilla scents and amber notes, a bouquet of roses in a tin!

It’s said to be making one feeling incredibly gorgeous and inspire romantic reactions in men, so ladies better grab one especially if you looking for attraction and attention 🙂

I like it because it’s not strong on the nose and seems to last all day long.

I am honestly impressed.

Lux Sheer Twilight body wash

Oh how I love freebies!

I bought the Glamour magazine which had Lux sheer twilight body wash and Kiss acrylic nails as freebies.  I was more excited for the body wash more than the nails which are not exactly my thing.cskdmlfwiaex0vk

Lux sheer twilight body wash has an eye catching packaging in a plastic bottle, so convenient for traveling purposes.

The scent s to die for, so calming and refreshing at the same time be it you in the shower or bath tub it’s a must have. Leaves the skin feeling fresh and smelling lovely too it’s like having a spa in my own home.

I loved it long time…

Which one is your favorite beauties?

Mother’s Day High tea event

 

On the 7th May 2016 we(ZNZee Club) hosted a Mother’s day high tea event held at Siyaphumula B&B, organized by three young business ladies who came up with the name for their club ZNZee Club taken from their first letters of their names Zandi Mkhize, Nosipho Vukeka and Zandile Mkhulise. We aim and hope to organise functions that we normally travel out of Newcastle for which are mostly hosted in bigger cities hence women are limited on such functions here in our lovely town.

Initially we were to host 60 ladies our tickets got finished before the cut off date  and we had more ladies who wished to attend so we had to stretch to 70 in total we had 80 guests including us hosts and our guests. We had motivational speakers to feed the soul like Lady Bishop Dlomo (Mrs.) from Greater Harvest Church International whose clip was play the following day on Gagasi fm Sunday Devotion slot she assured woman that they are special and good enough not forgetting to learn of letting go of the past since most women tend to blame themselves for problems that occur around them be it at home or relatinships, we also had Ms. Mpume Hlophe to nurture our souls she blew us away and also we had Mrs. Mamello Qametsi Vilana who tackled on what it means to be a woman, the rest of the clips recorder live at the event were aired on Monday the 9th May 2016.

Our beautiful Mothers
We had invited Gagasi fm and they were represented by Lango Cele who is the producer of The Golden circle 9am-12:00 show who accompanied the presenter of the show Nomfundo Mzolo the dazzling one as known by listeners.
We had our local talented Nomalungelo Gama who blew us away by her voice and ask her mom to join her for a duet which was a surprise to us. Some ladies travelled from Johannesburg, Ladysmith & Nquthu. Their presence was heartfelt and this event wouldn’t have been a success if it weren’t for each and every individual who was present.

We also aim to promote our young talented local ladies and we invited them to exhibit:  Iman Sokhela from Tapestry Accessories, Zandi Masondo from Za Vintage and Khanyi Ngcobo from Glambitious woman who did beauty tutorials and body evaluations. On the exhibitors table we also had books to empower ourselves.

Happy for her goodie bag
The event was very successful even though the weather wasn’t on our side but the ladies managed to dress up and have a good time while warming up with a cup of tea & especially because it was our very first event that we have organised as a team it takes dedicating and commitment to make it happen and we are proud that we did not limit ourselves with the fear of being not known we kicked as many doors as possible for sponsorship and we are grateful to each and every sponsor who came through for us and believing in us.
We had mini treatments for the ladies in a form of pedicure, manicure and back and neck massage for all the women who attended they did not leave empty handed as we had prepared goodie bags for all of them which were made possible by our sponsors from different companies. Thank you to our sponsors for making up the goodie bag and make it as beautiful as it was.
Not only did we host this event to entertain the ladies or ourselves but also to give back to the community, we donated disposable nappies and formula to Home Meah which is a home for toddlers based in Newcastle.

Mother’s Day high tea

Mother’s day is approaching and what better way to spoil yourself or Mom this mother’s day?

I am so delighted that Zandi Mkhulise, Nosipho Vukeka and I are hosting this event as we are counting days now, our very 1st annual Mother’s day high tea! Yay

We worked hard at getting sponsorship and we are so grateful to the companies who believed and trusted us from the very 1st email they received requesting sponsorship. Sometimes it doesn’t take to be known in order to pull such off.

I must say blogging has created a pathway for me and built relationships with cosmetic companies and fellow bloggers at large.

I shall give feedback once this event has taken place and mention all the sponsors who made this event possible.

No wish is too extreme

Tea anyone?

#myserum10 Vitchy

Cdl-0B3VIAAhHGC

Vitchy is one of the products I was recently introduced to by Vitchy, had seen it on the shelved thinking it’s not suitable for me little did I know that it’s one of the best.

I am currently trialing a 10 day product by Vitchy – LiftActive Serum 10 Supreme for 10 day since I received 10 samples.

The texture of the serum is white in a thick liquid form, the scent is so amazing. It is said to be fighting with aging, has the lifting up effect and reveals the younger you.

As soon as I received it I washed my face and tried one on my face, I must say from the very first application my skin felt like velvet and flawless even though i had two zits but that’s the feeling i got from it.

I shall write a full review once completed this trial.

Thanks to Vitchy

Palmer’s Shea Formula body lotion

Palmer's Shea Formula Moisturizing Body Lotion

I received this body lotion from Palmer’s after participated in one of their facebook updates, followed instructions and my bottle was delivered!

The packaging is made of a hard white clear plastic with a nozzle on top for easier use. It is a 400ml bottle with a beautiful shape,  labelled sticker with orange and brown wording.
The texture is very creamy, white in colour due to high concentration of natural ingredients product color and consistency may vary.

The scent has a mixture of shea butter with Vitamin E, marula oil & oatmeal extract but the shea butter is dominant.

This product is made with natural shea butter and marula which explains the scent. It has 24hour moisture so my skin stays well maintained all day long.

This product is said to be the raw natural shea sustainably sourced in Africa, It’s a rich, super nourish ingredient which is a building block for softer & radiant skin. It contains a high level of unsaponifiable , anti-oxidant- rich emollients that create a protective moisture seal to help prevent skin dehydration and improve elasticity for a  more youthful, radiant glow, balance tone & texture, soothe and calm irritation.

Shea Butter is known for deeply nourishing and softening the skin.

Marula Oil is known for imparting radiance and improves texture.

Oatmeal extract is known for calming and soothing irritation.

I love this product for the fact that most of the ingredients are natural which is very beneficial to the skin. The smell lasts all day long and even if I take a shower later on will still smell it on my skin.

Palmer’s products are of good quality and for keeps.

Ladies if you have not tried this product it is a must have I recommend it!

Available at Click’s store and Palmer’s stockists.

Made in Africa
