While many of you may already know this, 2017 was the year I completed my honours degree in English literature. Because reading is one of my favorite pastimes, I thought it would only be fitting to welcome the new year and begin my 2018 blogging with a list of the top 8 books I have fallen in love with last year. While I have read close to 40 different novels and found many of them brilliant in their own way, the ones mentioned below had a direct impact on my life, reading and thinking. These are in no particular order as I would probably find it to be quite an effort to decide which I loved the most. They are all very different and range between memoirs to childrens literature but each are beautifully perfect in their own way.
In an earlier post, I shared my thoughts on the new Nomination Italy Composable range of bracelets which I customized to suit not only my lifestyle, but my wardrobe (minimal, soft and with a little sparkle). Today however, I have an exciting competition in collaboration with Nomination where you can win and customize your own Composable bracelet to the value of R5000!
If you saw my previous post or, if you follow me on social media, then you would probably have guessed by now that I am pretty much in love with my collection from Georgini – especially the rose gold earrings pictured above. To celebrate the launch, Gerogini and I will be giving away 2 x R2500 vouchers where you can choose any items you want!
Iconic Italian jewelry brand, Nomination, turns 30 this year and to celebrate, they launched a special edition bracelet as a tribute to life and all its joys and adventures. Founded by Paolo Gensini in 1987, the celebration is all about honouring his motto of “Bella La Vita” by introducing a special edition bracelet as a tribute to life and all its joys and adventures.
It should come as no surprise that Eau Thermale Avène is one of my all time favorite skin care brands. I have written about them countless of times, carry at least one of their products in my hand bag (with more in my car) and recommend the brand to anyone who will listen (just try shopping with me at Clicks or Dis-Chem). The brand has recently come out with two new products in their Cleanance range and I am simply loving them both. If you suffer with acne-prone of oily skin, then this one’s for you.
