January 2018 Newsletter

Restoring balance... A New Year is a beautiful thing. Positive hopes, beliefs and dreams aspire from our plans and promises to ourselves. We reflect and allow for a brighter side to our hidden and sometimes less colourful self in the hope that our soul-searching me-time over the holidays will bring us clues as to which direction to take next. And if I am completely honest, I have to admit, I feel a bit invincible, much like I am super woman who dusted off her cape after a much-needed break because I know I am a woman with a plan. I am capable of anything I set my mind and heart to and I am ... More

December 2017 Newsletter

It’s the most wonderful time of the year! As the countdown begins towards Christmas, I feel proud to reflect on the goals we set for ourselves this year. Our focus for 2017 was to help others ‘Embrace their Uniqueness’ so that we can all be a little more content with who we are. We are so quick to criticise ourselves, thinking we don’t live up to the images the media portrays of the perfect partner, parent, manager, employee…the perfect anything - most of us don’t have ‘the perfect’ body - all of us are stressed and overworked at some point and the constant feeling of guilt ...

November 2017 Newsletter

Time flies when you’re having fun! So, it’s November... NOVEMBER?! Already?! How did that happen? Apart from only having a couple of months to complete endless tasks that still needs doing before 2018 makes its brand-new appearance, I am excited and eager to see what November holds in the capital. London always promise to deliver and the last stretch of 2017 is again sure to be a memorable, one-of-a-kind experience not to be missed! There are jam-packed events and parties starting to pop up everywhere, beautiful people all dressed up wandering the streets, festive lights are being ... More

October 2017 Newsletter

Of Course it’s Personal! October to me symbolises reflection, preparation and countdown to beautiful things. This time of year, I always feel a strong urge to start finishing undone tasks and clearing lists that have been lingering on my mind (and notepad…) for a while, so that everything is ticked off by the end of the year, ready for a fresh start in 2018. What a year it’s been so far, so many blessings to be thankful for and so many new, beautiful people that I’ve had the pleasure to meet. I always say that it’s impossible for me NOT to get personally involved in my work, ... More

September 2017 Newsletter

A September to Remember Although the last few days of August have been beautiful weather-wise here in London, there seem to be a definite crispness in the air in the mornings, and although some of us (a.k.a me, the South African in London), are still clinging to the hope of another 30 degree week, (or weekend, or just one day, pleeeeeaaasse?!!) it’s pretty safe to say there are signs that autumn is slowly but surely making its appearance. Nature will soon show us beautiful splashes of warm red, yellow and orange colours which always leave me in awe of how wonderful and clever our amazing ... More

August 2017 Newsletter

Skin Deep... I waved my girls' goodbye as they headed off for their final day at Nursery earlier this month...How did that happen already? How time flies! Now my husband and I have 6 glorious (and slightly dreaded) weeks ahead of us where we need to keep our girls entertained! If anyone has any fun recommendations on how to keep two princesses smiling everyday, then please do tell me! As a couple who both work, the summer holidays can be challenging to manage but we have decided that we will take it in turns to spend quality time with our girls and honestly, we can't wait. We will be ... More

July 2017 Newsletter

It’s a big deal! When someone walks in to my clinic for the very first time I always try to make him or her feel at home. Although it is meant to be an exciting experience, it is normal for anyone to feel nervous and to me this is definitely not a bad thing; it is a good indication that the individual has spent time thinking through their decision to have a Permanent Make Up treatment, very carefully. Everyone has different reasons for visiting my clinic, but the majority of clients share similar concerns and although I do have a Q&A page on my website, I thought it might be ... More

June 2017 Newsletter

Sunny Days Ahead! When the sun comes out in London, it means only one thing - grab that table outside and don’t let it go! When temperatures sore, the City transforms. Gone are the starch suit jackets and itchy cardigans, the brisk walkers with always somewhere important to be and the grumpy, oh so, pasty faces. Hello, to the open shirted, smiling, carefree individuals who can make a G&T last more than a few hours on a Thursday afternoon! As a South African who has lived here for 12 years, I have fully embraced what used to be an alien concept to me - sunbathing in the local ... More

May 2017 Newsletter

May in Mayfair… Easter egg hunts completed: One Chocolate eggs consumed: A lot more than One Easter egg calories burnt off: Zero (except when running after the girls on their scooters of course!) Alcohol units: Who knows… Days out in the sun: Every day it has made an appearance - I am South African after all! Number of laughs: Oh hundreds… I have to be honest with you… I may have forgotten to write this blog if it weren't for my mum catching her flight home - yes, I admit, I have been having far too much fun these past few weeks and I am now starting to feel a little bit ... More

April 2017 Newsletter

Happy Easter Every Bunny! As per the Latin word ‘aperie’, April means to open - how apt. Just as the petals on the buds begin to unravel, I too will peel back the wrapper of my favourite chocolate bar, put my feet up and savour each and every mouthful… Ahh lent, how I shan’t miss you! ;) Jokes and April Fools aside, April has always been the month that symbolises new beginnings more than any other. The countryside becomes a thing of artistry and beauty once again, we welcome the very latest (and cutest) additions to our farms, and the religious celebrations of Easter often ... More
