Review: Urban Sass Salon

Last week I had the privilege of visiting the Urban Sass salon. Located in the Nedbank building in Sandton, the salon has a clean and sophisticated aesthetic and houses a wide variety of products. For those who don’t know about it, it’s a real hidden gem!      When you visit Urban Sass, you are given…

SAFW Day 3

Last week I attended day 3 of South African Fashion Week (I missed the first two days due to personal commitments). Day 3 was quite underwhelming (apparently Day 1 was the showstopper), with nothing exciting coming down the runway bedsides for Vintage Zionist and a Chinese presentation by designer Chu Yan. Nonetheless, I had a great time connecting…

Stranded

Sometimes we create with purpose and sometimes we just create. All too often, posts are created with the intention of conveying a message, relaying a trend or sharing recommendations. When do we stop and create just to be creative? There is not always the need to write about something specific or teach a fashion lesson….

Liquid Gold – 5 Reasons to Try Argan Oil Today

My obsession with argan oil happened by total chance. I was on the hunt for a new facial serum and happened to come across a bottle of argan oil in a local pharmacy. Having heard about it as a suitable substitute for moroccan oil, I  was totally intrigued, bought the bottle and started using it…

Nicci Launch AW ’17

Each time I attend the highly anticipated Nicci Boutiques event, I am absolutely blown away. Every season, the Nicci team somehow manages to outdo themselves. If there was ever a prize for generosity, they would certainly take the crown. If it’s not enough to showcase the newest season’s most beautiful clothes, the team pull out all…

Slipping into Sleekness

Slip dresses have been a favourite trend of mine for the longest time. They are easy to throw on and look semi put-tother with seriously minimal effort. They are my go-to when I’m in a rush, feeling a little chubs or “have nothing to wear”. As great as they are, slip dresses tend to border…

Va Va Voom

When the kind people at SheIn offered me an item off of their site, I literally didn’t hesitate with what I wanted. This top caught my eye almost immediately – it’s Va Va Voom! Can you just imagine my excitement when it arrived in the mail? SheIn is my go-to destination when it comes to online shopping….

Live On

We all have different aspects to our personality, and style just happens to be one of the many avenues available to showcase it. When I don an ensemble like this, I feel badass AF. I don’t give a shit that I’m wearing a dark head-to-toe outfit during the day, alongside the beach. I feel confident and…

Adventure Awaits

Welcome back everybody! I know it’s been a while since we last spoke, but there have been so many things going on behind the scenes with the blog. I really wanted to do a full relaunch in Feb but certain things are taking longer than expected and I don’t want to keep you guys waiting…

2016: A Year in Review

And that ladies and gentlemen, was 2016. Wow what a rollercoaster of a year! This year brought with it so many ups and downs, cycles, sub-cycles and more. There were milestones and challenges, highs and lows and everything in between. It has been a year of hard work, dedication and self-improvement. I have grown and…

Reflections & Introspections

As the year draws to a close, it’s only natural for us to reflect on the past year and introspect about the forthcoming one. While preparing the 2016 wrap-up for Trashcan Rebellion, I came across this incredible questionnaire that I had to share. Print it, write down your answers and keep this piece of paper…

Tow Away Zone

When it comes to bright, bold colours, I’m always all in. For me, the brighter the better. So it may come as no surprise then, that I was instantly sold on this dress (by colour alone) before even trying it on. Apple green has been a long time favourite of mine and this dress blatantly capitalises…
