May has flown right by, it feels like just the other day I was filming Siobhan (from Sugar and Spice) and my April faves – you can watch the video here. I have a couple beauty and fashion faves for this month, plus a fave TV show and YouTuber. Enjoy the post and please let me know if you have tried any of these products in the comments – I love reading what you have to say!
Urban Studio Powder & Blush Brushes by Cala
I was chatting to Luzanne from Pink Peonies the other day, she told me that she saw some new makeup brushes at Dischem that looked stunning and were really reasonably priced. I saw that Urban Studio, which is made by Cala, had quite a few brushes in stock, but the pack of 4 really caught my eye! They have the softest taklon bristles, I just loooove them! The four-pack comes with powder, blush, foundation and concealer brushes and also a cute little mesh zipper pouch. The pack is only R250 so I say go grab them before they are sold out!
Colourpop Super Shock Shadow in Weenie
Sadly it’s difficult to get Colourpop in South Africa, but if you want to place an order on their site, I would highly recommend Weenie! It is a pinky rose gold colour in a pearlized finish and only costs $5. I wore it the other night and got so many compliments, speaking of compliments, it really goes well with my blue eyes.
I saw these beauties on an accidental shopping spree with my bestie, Karis. I have been so faithful to my rose gold aviators that I got at Primark, YDE, and Aldo (I managed to lose them TWICE), but I fell in love these immediately! I got them at YDE and I think they cost about R250. They also came in this cute flamingo soft bag. They are a very dusty pink shade and the hardwear on the arms are gold. I love this shape, so trendy right now!
Faux Suede Ankle Boots
I got these beauties at Mr Price a few weeks ago. They are a dark brown colour with a zip on the inside and tassles on the outside – very festival-vibe! They also have a pointed tip and a short block heel. They are so comfy and go perfectly with my boot/tights combo that I will be wearing all winter. They aren’t on the Mr Price website now, so try grab them in-store as soon as possible!
My favourite, favourite show at the moment is Criminal Minds – if you watch my snaps (@camgildenhuys) then you would probably picked this up already. It’s a show about FBI profilers, the Behavioral Analysis Unit, that solve serial crimes through their analysis of the crimal’s psyche. Now, I am big into crime shows and books so this is right up my alley. If you’re into CSI, James Patterson adn Michael Connely then this will definitely go down well. I am on season 6 (of 11) so I am binge watching for days. If you give it a go, please let me know what you think!
I love YouTubers who aren’t all tutorials. I like to see their favourites, some challenges and a little into them as a person. I also want to recommend someone who is relatively unknown and is from the UK, we can’t get a lot of the products that US YouTubers recommend. Roxi is from Poland, but lives in England, and she’s great at hack videos, lifestyle vids, and makeup and hair tutorials. Check out her channel here.
I would really appreciate a follow!
