Lippie Scrub!

If you’re like me and you’re wearing lipstick all week. You’re lips tend to get dry and chapped. No one likes chapped lips! I’ve created a scrub of my own to prevent this. Lip scrubs are great to remove the dead skin from your lips. Also keeps it soft and smooth!

Rose water Lippie scrub Recipe:

  • 1 teaspoon of Rose Water
  • 1 tablespoon of Cane Sugar
  • 1 and a half tablespoons of Coconut Oil

All you have to do is mix together until combined. After mixing store in a cool dry place.

On application, use a pea sized amount. Rub in circular motion. Wipe off with a cotton ball and warm water. This scrub can be used daily before applying lipstick. I do this scrub daily, but depending on skin type – use when suitable for you!

Hope you guys love it! Let me know what you think

OOTD : Black&Yellow.

Guess who’s back, back again?! Bini’s back! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜ I hope everyone is fab. I hope it hasn’t been as rocky for you as it has been for me. It’s July. A new month, this means new attitude and new outlook. 
I loved my outfit today, thought I would share. Although I adore an all black outfit. You can always add a pop of color to your outfits. I went with something very simple but cute.


This yellow knit is from H&M South Africa , the suede black flat pumps as well. I paired it with a brushed black jegging, it’s got a little zip detail on the bottoms – this one is from Woolworths SA. I was super comfy in this outfit, who doesn’t want to be comfy on a cold day.


Let me know what you think. Love always. Xx

She’s twenty-one!

What it means to turn 21?

It means you’re an adult now, it’s no longer time to sit around and just wait for things to happen, it’s time to get out there and get those things done. It means you can now get out into the world , make your own memories, travel the world, meet new people, try new food and just do you the way only you know best.

My wishes weren’t extravagant, I found myself wanting happiness more than anything, wanting memories with people I loved, wanting the great moments to last forever. I found myself wishing to be successful in whatever I put my mind to.

I want to be great, not for anybody else, but for myself, for my sister and for my parents. I want them to be proud. I want to be able to sit back and be proud of myself too.

So if you’re turning 21 this year as well. I wish you all the best. May it be great and everything you’re expecting, no matter what your wishes are, may they be fulfilled.

It hasn’t been an easy ride, the future doesn’t look easy either, but Here’s to turning 21.. 🍾🍾🍾image

My birthday outfit was from River Island, it’s a two piece crocheted set, in Black. The crocheted detail was my favorite part of the outfit. I paired it with a frill suede tan peep toe heel. Those have to be my fave shoe right now. I through on some gold accessories and was ready to go! Hope you like. 😘

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.

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

image1

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.Β  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.Β  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

Review: Harevst Grill & Wine

Situated at Carnival City Casino on the east rand, this upmarket grill house boasts an inviting ambiance with welcoming staff.
With the interior being borderline rustic and contemporary, where Warm inviting woods and bold reds were used to make this grill house somewhat different.

image6 image7

You probably want to know if this very modern grill house has more to offer than just an exciting interior??
Well Yes they do.

image1

The food was definitely something to write about, the menu varied from Vegetarian, salads, seafood, your expected grills and sweet endings. They offer wine options with most meals, red or white, dry or semi-sweet. The portions are just right. More than enough to fill you up. And tasty too.

image2Brace Yourself. This might make you hungry. Some of the meals we were lucky enough to try.

1) Lamb shank with Pilaf Rice.

image5

2) Grilled lamb Chops with a side of Baked Potato, topped with fried onion rings.

image3

3) Prawn and Chicken Curry, with a side of Pilaf Rice.

image4

From what I’ve seen most people seem to like them too.
To those on the East Rand – You should definitely check this restaurant. You won’t regret it.
If you’ve been there already, let me know what you think of it.

Don’t forget to follow me on the gram and Twitter. πŸ™‚

Love, light and Peace to All. πŸ™‚

“A woman who cuts her hair, is about to change her life.” – Coco Chanel

This past Sunday – I made the bold and ballsy decision to chop my hair off.
With it being heavy and very time consuming to maintain I decided to cut
most of it. It’s much lighter, and way easier to take care of. I’ve had
reservations of making it this short but ‘go big or go home right ?’.. As
you know Blonde is not my natural colour and its safe to say that my hair
was not in the greatest of conditions. So It was a much needed hair cut at
the least. Even if I don’t adapt to my new hair cut , atleast my hair grows
quickly.

imageI know most of you are reading this post with the idea ‘Ugh, she cut her
hair, whats the big deal …’ To be brutally honest My hair has been my
shield for the past few years, It hid the pain and sadness and all the bad
stuff people had said. It hid my flaws. It hid all that which I didn’t
want people to see.
Although these were ultimately the things that made me who I am today. I
wanted to keep it to myself. I wanted it to be private. And now, I couldn’t
care less what it is that people see in me. I don’t care if they see me for
the imperfect 20 year old I am. It’s okay. There comes a time in Everyone’s
life when you realise that it’s okay to be YOU. It’s okay to have flaws.
It’s all okay.
I have accepted myself for who I really am, And as soon as you start doing
that, everyone around will do the same (don’t get me wrong , you probably
don’t need anyone’s approval). – It’s just nice to be accepted some times.

It was high time that I made some changes in my life. And I’d say I’m off
to a good start.
If you’re somewhat like me and making big plans, good luck , be you and do
it with a smile.
Have a blessed week everyone.

#OOTD – September 1st

Even though we don’t really experience four distinct seasons here in South Africa. Spring usually starts towards the end of August and ends mid October. So I thought I would take full advantage of the month September and decided to be somewhat ‘springy’.

Most of those that know me would know that White is go to color for spring and summer. You could say it’s my favorite. I’m the type to push the boundary and wear white in winter.

image

I had expected the 1st of September to be rather warm and sunny, it was very much the opposite of my expectations. So I’d decided against my usual all white spring day attire.

White Pants are from Zara – the sister had actually chose this one for me. (My investment Trousers)

Rust orange Shirt is from Oakridge – Mr Price (Semi- Casual with chiffon inset on the shoulders)

And the tan loafers are from Edgar’s. (Inexpensive and comfy)

I know it’s the already the 2nd. But hope you like it.

Love and peace! Happy spring everyone!
