If I can’t have Ryan Gosling for Christmas

So I’ve spent about 3 hours deciding what I want for Christmas. It all started at the office today, as Marie Claire launches their #MCWishlist – a curated selection of gifts that you can choose from and send to specific people as a wink-wink-nudge-nudge for this year’s presents.

All the items are categorized into different sections and then filtered by price. Cool huh? Here are my favourite picks for under R280…

  • Russian Red Matte Lipstick, M.A.C, R240. Every make-up artist I have ever spoken to, says this is their go-to colour for a bold red lip. My other favourite colours from M.A.C. are Lady Danger, Heroine and Rebel.

  • Salon voucher, Sorbet, R250. My favourite thing to do (after wine with a friend) is a mani and a pedi (preferably while drinking wine with a friend)
  • Moleskin 2018 Weekly Diary, Superbalist, R279. A brand-new diary is my catnip – I got my 2017 diary as a Secret Santa gift and have used it every day this year, thank you Marishka!

  • Knot Front Slider, Mr P, R50. I’m lusting over a pair of silver Birkenstocks ATM, so these will definitely fill the void.

  • Photo voucher, Nifty250, R250. I’d love to print a whole bunch of new pics for my fridge in the new year.

Pajamas ALL day!

So it’s no secret that I’m obsessed with all of my gran’s clothes (yip, even her pajamas!) This ruby velvet dressing gown is becoming a staple for me during Cape Town’s transitional weather. I scouted the stores to find some other PJ gems that you can wear 9-5pm.
