I'll be away until I return back home again and as you can see I'll be immersing myself  in "The Great Gatsby" and "The fault in our stars" which I've wanted to read for ages! Until that time have a very Merry Christmas and an awesome New year! Love you all! Bye Bye! ^_^

Fashion Haul| Forever New & the likes

Sunday, 22 December 2013  at 10:43 pm
I've just finished stuffing and folding about close to a 100 samosa's with the mum! It was fun indeed, trying to create a perfect triangle is challenging and a game in itself *laughs*What I'm craving while I'm down here in my home-town is a lip tar. I've always wanted to try them and when I found them at TopShop I should have bought one. But now they've been taken off the shelves and replaced with TopShop's lip crayon. I hope you enjoy today's fashion haul and the items I picked out! 

Till the next post!
Bye Bye!

Nail Art| Christmas Edition Part IV

Thursday, 19 December 2013  at 2:40 pm

There are only six more days till Christmas! With that being said I have the last edition to my "Christmas Nail Art Edition!" I used Rimmel's "Yes sir, Yes sir!" which is in my opinion the best aubergine purple I have ever seen! Today's Christmas nail art reminds me of the glamorous Great Gatsby days! It's a bit reminiscent of the glitz and glamour of those days because of the accent glittery nail. I hope you enjoy!

"A little party never killed nobody" A track from the Great Gatsby when Gatsby throws one of his many glitz parties!

Till the next post!
Bye Bye!

Nail Art| Christmas Edition Part III

Tuesday, 17 December 2013  at 7:39 pm

I'm finally in my home-town again, after two days of driving and immense exhaustion! Finally, this time we soaked up the scenery around us, because my brother drove *laughs* (he drives slow). Unfortunately, my family and I were met with bad news the day we arrived. Which completely took us by surprise. All I'll be saying is, I have to attend a funeral this Saturday. I read somewhere that, it only takes a day to fall in love, only a day to change your life and only a day in which your life can be taken away from you. I'm reminded everyday of how precious life is and that death takes a loved one away so suddenly, you're never prepared for it. I hope everyone is enjoying their festive holidays so far, for whoever is on holiday already! And be safe over the holidays! I hope you enjoy today's post!

I used Essence "Grey-t to be here" as a base coat, I love the slight shimmer that it has to it! And Charlie's "Sugar Baby" as the snowflakes falling onto the bed of snow at the bottom of my nails.

Till the next post!
Bye Bye!

Nail Art| Christmas Edition Part II

Friday, 13 December 2013  at 5:16 pm

I am getting ready for a road-trip with the family! We haven't driven down to our home-town in quite sometime because the last time we drove down, I had to be rushed to hospital! Hopefully that won't be happening again! It takes us 2 days to drive down and trust me, it's not fun. It would be fun if we stopped along the way and really take in and breath in the scenery around us, but that never happens. Oh well. I hope you enjoy today's post!

I used Charlie's "Red Lights #010" which I now find to be the perfect shade of Christmassy red!
And for the mock glitter Christmas tree's on my nails I used Essence "Hello Holo #03"

Till we meet again!
Bye Bye!

Nail Art| Pointed Nails

Tuesday, 10 December 2013  at 5:13 pm

Oh boy, today has to be one of the most stressful days of my life by far! I read yesterday online that my results were going to be released today. I honestly thought I was going to fail because my physiology mark was so low that I had to go for a viva (an oral exam). To my absolute joy when I checked my marks online this morning, I'm finally done with my last year in uni and now a fully fledged biochemist! I'm so happy!! Happy doesn't even begin to explain how ecstatic I am and overjoyed! 2013 began on a low note and ended on a high, I'm so happy! All that awaits for me now, is to get accepted into one of the two honours programs that I am on a waiting list for, so hopefully that happens. Fingers crossed!

For a while I was into acrylic nails and how pretty they looked. Unfortunately, they completely destroyed my nails, my nails are thin and the nail plate is basically banged up by the nail file I used to file off the acrylic nail. A note to anyone who tries to remove acrylic nails faster, do not use a nail file to remove it faster! My nails are on a break forever from acrylic nails and now I'm waiting for them to grow out to their healthy selves again. The highlight of today's mani are pointed tips and the gradient effect. I hope you enjoy this post!

I hope you enjoyed this post and until we meet again!
Bye Bye!

Nail Art| Christmas Edition Part I

Friday, 6 December 2013  at 10:14 am

Yesterday my mum and I decided to watch "Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom" the movie was absolutely riveting and amazing! Idris Elba portrayed Mr. Nelson Mandela amazingly well, he really created the atmosphere and demeanour of Mr. Nelson Mandela well. Naomie Harris who played Winnie Mandela (Nelson Mandela's wife) portrayed the fighting spirit and determination of Winnie Mandela spot on. I never realised that Winnie Mandela was such a fighter and had a fierce spirit within her, until I had watched the movie. In some way, although I wasn't exposed to Apartheid at all, the movie is able to capture the tension and atmosphere of the environment extremely well. I was born in 1992 and had the privilege of being apart of the free generation. I never experienced the effects of apartheid of which I am immensely thankful of. When I see what oppression was's mind blowing and I'm glad that we're now a nation that embraces every culture. It was ironic that we decided to watch "Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom" yesterday and Mr. Nelson Mandela died yesterday. He gave his entire life to South Africa and was the only person in South Africa that I knew of who possessed a great amount of humility and forgiveness towards others. Of course I'm sad, but I feel that although his life was sad and filled with hardships, what he fought for became a reality and he didn't die in vein. 

Mr. Nelson Mandela, our former president rest in peace.

"Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom"

And Happy December!

In celebration of December and Christmas, I'll share my Christmas wishlist as I do every year *smiles* This time around my Christmas wishlist isn't excessively long but it is some what expensive. I hope you enjoy this post and I'd love to know what you have on your wishlist this year!

::Christmas Wishlist::

I'm honestly just a bit tired of using at least five books to prop up my camera on my bed *laughs* I really need a tripod stand!

The Iphone 5s and c have just arrived here in the South, well the area in which I live, it's just arrived. Yay! I've been saying this year in and year out that I'm ready to jump on the "Apple" bandwagon, I'm ready! Sorry Android, I'm a traitor.

The lens says it all, I want the awesome bokeh and faded background, want, want, want!

Last but not least, tying in with my dream to travel, I wish that either next year Christmas or the following year I'll travel to a country and have a white Christmas!

I hope you enjoyed this post and till we meet again!
Bye Bye!
