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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
The spring is back in our step!
The days are finally getting longer, so let’s shake off winter!
The 1st March doesn’t just mark the beginning of Spring, it also marks my business’ 5 year anniversary! I’m so proud of how far my business has come and can say hand-on-my-heart that hard work definitely pays off!
I knew I always wanted to own my own business. The first time I was shown how to create the perfect set of eyebrows with Permanent Make-Up I fell in love with it and just wanted to learn more. I feel so privileged to have found my passion so early in life and love the fact that ...
Love is in the air
Wow, it’s February already! January has been an exciting month full of new ideas and plans for the year ahead and for the future of my Permanent Make Up business. What an amazing feeling to know my business will mark it’s 5 year anniversary in March, and that I will also be celebrating my 1 year anniversary of being at South Molton Street full-time. I think cake will definitely be in order!
With Valentine's Day falling in February, the month of love is upon us! We all enjoy spoiling our loved ones but naturally forget the importance of treating ourselves too. ...
Beauty Begins the Moment you Decide to be Yourself
Happy New Year everyone! I hope your Christmas was as lovely as mine. I was lucky enough to spend an idyllic week in a snug little cottage in the middle of the country with my husband and gorgeous twin girls. There was barely any WIFI which I took as blessing in disguise to spend much needed quality time with my beautiful little family. After looking back at a successful 2016, we toasted the New Year with a glass of champagne eagerly awaiting what 2017 will have in store for us all!
New Year New You - isn't that how the saying goes? But ...
Only Look Back to see how far you've come...
It's December! I am not sure exactly where this year has gone but I know that this has been one of the most interesting years of my life!
When you own your own business it is so easy to just focus on the things you need to improve and although it is certainly important to acknowledge these, we mustn't overlook all the positives. December feels like the perfect time for me to reflect on the year gone by and all the amazing opportunities, changes & additions that have shaped my 2016 and made it so memorable.
So, let us rewind to January ...
Let's start this month off with a BANG!
This time of year everyone wants to look and feel his or her absolute best, especially in front of the camera! There is nothing worse than seeing a photo from the night before where your lipstick is smudged across your face or your eyebrows are decidedly wonkier than you thought when you so painstakingly drew them on before you left the house... Yes, we have ALL been there!
Permanent Make-up can be a fantastic way to fix these little nuances that can have a big effect on our self esteem as well as being a life-saver for busy people who don't a...
Grab your sparkly dress...it's time to party!
Aside from it being socially acceptable to stock up on countless roasties, mulled wine sachets and Celebration tins for Christmas (in case you should need them), I love the festive atmosphere that embarks on London in November. Although I am slightly upset about the Dom Pérignon 'Transformation' Pop-up closing on South Molton Street in October after only 3 days, I am sure there will be another Champagne Pop-up to tickle my fancy! Everyone seems in a great mood this time of year and although shopping on Oxford Street for Christmas ...
And there September goes...almost over in a flash!
Then again, they do say time flies when you are having fun and what a month it has been! I am looking forward to ending it on such a high with everyone at 58 South Molton Street coming together to eat cake and support Macmillan with their Largest Coffee Morning on Friday 30th September. We cannot wait to see you there!
I would like to say a big THANK YOU to everyone who is coming to support us and help us raise money for this worthy cause. To 58’s gorgeous Michal and her fantastic reception team, Caulene's Bakery House who are are ...
