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

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 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 ...

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

Beauty Begins the Moment you Decide to be Yourself Happy New Year everyone! I hope your Christmas was as lovely as mine.
