Synonymous with beautifully tailored clothing and femininity, Poetry has been one of my favorite stores for years. The scent of each store, combined with the elegant clothes on offer, never fails to leave me breathless as soon as I step into a store. When I started working, I told myself that I would save aside some money and buy 1 or 2 items from Poetry each month until I have built up the perfectly subtle yet classy wardrobe I have always dreamed of. In my first post of this series, I will be sharing a few of my current favorite pieces from the brand and offering various ways to style them, starting with the jeans, heels and blouse.
While I am not a vegan, I do appreciate the benefits of a plant based diet and have recently been doing more and more research into eating healthy and maintaining a good eating regime. It’s no surprise that I have a sickness which can at times, like now, flare up and get intensely debilitating, hindering my ability to many of the most basic and mundane tasks – like brushing my teeth. While I usually do take a special precaution with my diet (limiting gluten, sugar and dairy), at times like this, I find that some of the best healing takes place through the foods I eat and seem to crave places full of goodness like Nourish’d for food and Jessy’s Waffles for treats. Read more below on what I like to order at both of these places and why you should pop them a visit ASAP.
As many of you may know, I have regularly been going for facial treatments at Skin Body Renewal to help with my breakouts, pigmentation and scarring. These treatments vary between Dermapen, Laser Genesis, Radiance Peels, Azelan Peels and Photo-Dynamic Therapy. While I have been seeing a significant improvement in the tone and texture of my skin since doing these treatments, my post-procedure regime has definitely been an important factor in maintaining what the treatments aim to achieve. Read more below on the top 3 products I have been using to keep my skin calm, radiant and glowy after my treatments.
If you follow me on social media, then you might have noticed that I am one of the brand ambassadors for Deluxe Laser and Spa in Canal Walk. I am on my third treatment now and am simply loving the results. Find out more below on my thoughts on laser hair removal and how you can win a R500 voucher towards any treatment!
As many of you know by now, I regularly go to Skin Renewal for treatments which, coupled with eating plans by Dr Graham, has drastically improved the tone and texture of my skin. I thought I would do a follow up post from this one to talk about how I have been handling my lifestyle changes, the challenges that come along with it and some of the things I have incorporated into my everyday living.
