There is nothing quite like a new release from Eau Thermale Avène that makes me stop in my tracks. As many of you know by now, I have been using Avène products since they first launched in South Africa and to this day, use at least 1 – 2 products in my everyday skin care routine. Recently, Eau Thermale Avène sent me a few products from their new collection, the Les Essentials range which focuses on helping you achieve smooth and radiant skin.

After a few months of prepping and planning, the most wonderful day of my life finally came around and I got to marry my absolute best friend. For the first time I won’t say much, except for the fact that it was perfect in every single way. These photographs are so utterly beautiful and still take my breath away each time I glance at them.

Just like the clothes we consciously decide to put on everyday, makeup is a truly personal experience that almost every woman has a connection with. While I am drawn to a more simplistic approach to makeup (and by that I mean just foundation and mascara), I always tend to admire the work, effort and skill that goes into applying a full face of makeup whilst making sure that everything blends seamlessly.
One of my makeup woes which I struggled with for the longest time was finding a good quality, high street foundation that matches my skin tone without going ashy or settling into a cakey mess. I also needed something fuss free and that was easy to apply for mornings where I had lots to do or was running late for an appointment. Before my engagement in December last year, I made the conscious decision to take out a few hours of my day and dedicate it to finding a foundation that matches my skin perfectly which, to be frank, I never had much hope for – that is, until I found Bobbi Brown.
In an effort to not sound too dreary and start stressing about the fact that we are a few days away from March (which means I have just over a month until my wedding (yay!), I decided to fill today’s post with a few of the things I have been doing to help me feel good, look great and give me much needed, all round happy feeling.
