Monday Morning Top 5 Playlist :)

I think I’m in one of those ‘I’m not sure why I’m listening to this kind of Music mood’ – If there is such a thing anyway. So I made a little playlist for you all. Of the artists I think are vocally perfect.

1. My number one has got to be Adele’s Hello. I absolutely love it. The song speaks a thousand word. Although the song is a little sad, It is Monday so why not. I can officially say that the QUEEN is back. She recently released this song, and its already made a name for itself.

2. My second best, I think I’ll take this one back, way back with Erykah Badu – Window seat. “So Can I get a window seat, don’t want nobody next to me…” This song stays winning!!! Like I can’t think Of a reason anyone wouldn’t remember it.

3. I grew up listening to Frank Sanatra, my dad absolutely admires his music. My favorite is ‘It’s Life‘. Songs like these teach life lessons!
” I’ve been up and down and over and out
And I know one thing
Each Time I find myself flat on my face,
I pick myself Up and get back in the race
That’s Life, That’s life”

4.  Now we’re going even further back into the day, Probably Mom and Dads era. This one is ‘Say a little prayer for you’ by Aretha Franklin. This is my all time fave!!!!Not sure But I think this song was released in the 1960’s.

5. Last but not least. Disclosure – Omen ft Sam Smith. This one picks up the vibe just a little. Also recently released and oh he’s just so handsome.

Have a fabulous week babies. Remember to say a little prayer each morning, oh and if you do find yourself flat on your face, remember to pick yourself up 🙂

#OOTD : The Cocoon Kimono – 14th October.

The Cocoon Kimono , is a fun way to dress up any outfit. They are oh so cool and look fantastic on.

You could throw it on with solid colors, like I’ve done with the white Jegging and the simple white vest. With this Black Printed tassel cocoon Kimono, I could have used the solid black or even tried to mix prints, not too sure if I’m that brave though. Something to try next time.

This Cocoon kimono is from Cotton On. I love their clothing, they make really nice fun pieces.

I used the pointed strappy black tie up pumps. Felt like they complemented the outfit well. These babies are Prato, got that some time back. They also added alittle flair with the gold studs.

Let me know what you think. 🙂 And happy Sunday Babies. May the week ahead be a blessed one. :*

OOTD : Summer 2015 – Feat. The Gladiator Sandal

I used this cool white shift dress, it has a cutout block mesh on the sleeves. Always good to have one or two shift dresses lying around, great to just throw on. And they keep you cool.

The gladiator sandal, is a fun item to have. You can throw them on to spice up an outfit. They look great and are very comfy. I love mine.

The accessories… The black drop Earings are Lovisa, and Tassel bracelet is Cotton On. Also my Gold watch from Daniel Klein. I also did a bright orange and white nail.

I have a gladiator shoe on my wish list – Thought I’d share. It’s from zoom – They’re called ‘Holley‘ and from SuperBalist. I absolutely love these. Hope to get it before summer ends.

Summer Essentials : Part 2 – The Basic’s.

Part 2 of my Summer Essentials is made up of some of my basic essentials.

We all want to have great skin, and of course it doesn’t always have to come at a cost. I wouldn’t say I’ve had bad skin, but Ive had mild acne before, it was treated with roacutane, It’s also very important to Find yourself a skincare regime that works well for you. My dermatologist recommended Eucerin’s DermoPURIFYER Range. This particular range is for oily and blemish-prone skin. I’ve been using it for a few months now and I’ve got absolutely no complaints. Eucerin have other ranges as well, they don’t cost an arm and a leg. The products below are all from the DermoPURIFYER Range, I have a cleanser, Toner and an Active Night Care Moisturiser and for the day I have the Hydrating Care Moisturiser.

Next I have the handbag essential’s (not the nail polish of course). 🙂 I must have mentioned that I always get my nails done. But that doesn’t mean I can’t buy nail polish. Theres always the emergency. I discovered these pretty summer colours – they’re a gel nail polish from Essence (Not pricey at all – Got mine at Clicks). And the Sorbet Nail Polish – In a pink nude.

Also Keep your hands moist and soft, with Woolworths (Honey Vanilla Hand Cream)  – My favourite hand cream so far, Smells lovely. Then we have the Lips, no body ever wants dry lips. I use Zam-Buk – Cherry Lip Balm. Great for a base on your lips, especially if you use matt Lip colours. Also smells good.

I got this 3 piece pocket dividers from Cotton On. They can be used for practically anything, when you travel, make up bags. I plan on using mine as a  Lipstick bag. And for some other lose things in my handbag as well.

Summer Essentials : Part 1- Staying Hydrated!

I’ve decided to do a 4 Part Series of all my Summer Essentials. These are mainly things I Cannot live without during the summer. Also mostly things I’ve recently discovered. Some are great buys and great for you.

This very 1st part is about ‘STAYING HYDRATED‘.

I know from experience that during the summer , all I ever want is something cold and sweet, from Soda’s and Cider’s , to Ice cream and everything except something healthy.

But , I found these tasty cold pressed Juices from Woolworths. They are also a 100% Fruit & Vegetable juice Blend. They come in the cutest 250 ml bottles. And they don’t taste all that bad.

I’ve tried two great flavours! bii2

  • The Apple, Beetroot, orange and cucumber. – Apple adds sweetness and cucumber makes it a very cooling juice. Loved it!
  • The Carrot, Apple & Orange, With a shot of Ginger. The shot of Ginger wasn’t too strong. Orange enhances the freshness of this juice.

Both  of these great flavors are best served chilled. (The Beetroot one is my fave though.)

I know Sir Juice makes great Fresh Juices, They’re 100% fruit Juice and Fruit Pulp! The Pineapple was definitely my favorite. Who said healthy didn’t taste good.

My next one is WATER! Drink lots of it. It’s recommended that you drink 8 Glasses each day. Also a good way to stay away from fizzy drinks. What I’d recommend is buying a pretty bottle which you could carry with you to work each day, and just fill up every time. Also mix it up alil, try some fruit infused water’s , Use strawberries and watermelon if you want something alil sweet. Or Cucumber, Mint and Lemon for a refreshing taste.

This water carafe and glass set is from @Home – It was a low R149.00 – And I absolutely love mine! I use Still mineral water, and some fresh lemon slices. Works wonders. Especially if you’re trying to detox.

Hope you all liked the post.  Have a safe weekend, hope to post quite soon. Please don’t forget to give me any feedback you have.

#OOTD – 4/10 + 11/10 :)

So sorry I’ve been so distant. I’ve been somewhat busy. And Yes I know, I need to time manage.

So this isn’t just one OOTD, they are the past 2 Fridays Outfit’s. Both feature the ‘White Jegging’, this particular one, fits like a glove. It shows all the right curves. Its a full lenght one, and in both instances you can see that I’ve rolled mine up alittle bit.

I’ve decided to call this look – the angel.image4 image3

Its an All white outfit, with a touch of gold.
This is a Cut out lace swing top. Very cute and very cool, especially for the heatwave we’ve been having in Johannesburg.

The shoe, is a brushed gold cuffed sandal, with white sole. They’re very comfy. And add a bit of flare to this very outfit,

The next look – is very much a sporty one.

image2 image1

I used the White jegging. You can also They’re also somewhat high waisted.

This grey side slit sleevless tee , is so cute. Very casual, but a fun tee.  I’ve got 2 already, and I Plan on getting more. Better get yourself one too.

And the sneaks, are my fav yet. The all white Roshe Run 1. They’re the ‘comfiest’ sneaks I have.

P.S – Don’t mind my facials. I tend to look awkward sometimes.
Please Remember to give me any feedback, recommendations. Or even if you just think its ok.

And it’s Tuesday yet again, May this week be a blessed one. May your frown always be turned upside down.

Love and Light – Bini x

Nifty Storage Tip#1

I’ll be honest, I’m a little careless. 🙈 I tend to lose things easily. My earrings being one of those things, and they’re my biggest obsession, so it breaks my heart everytime.

Mom had actually gotten these before I did. Had to beg her to get me one too.
This cute little organizer is amazing , especially if you’re like me. They’re practical and can fit basically anywhere. I went away this past weekend and actually packed it into my bag.
They have adjustable compartments. My rings and studs fit perfectly into the little compartments.

You could probably get these at PlasticLand or any other storage store.
I love mine! ❤️❤️❤️
Hope you like it!
Love and Light ! ❤️✨
