KIEHL'S | CHANGE YOUR SKIN

Looking for a skin care range that will change your skin?!

Look no further - Kiehl's have challenged me to put their products to the ultimate skincare test. As some of you may know, I am very big into looking after my skin. It is so important to find the right skincare products that work for you. 

Over the next 4 weeks I will solely be using these four Kiehl's products in my skincare routine and updating you on how these products have made my skin feel. So keep posted for updates on my InstaStories!

I have already started using these products for the past week, and I must say they have exceeded my expectations. Not only do I love the packaging (yes I am a sucker for pretty products) but I also love how well these products absorb into my skin and make my skin feel so nourished. 


This gel based cleanser activates when combined with water to a create a creamy foam that is really gentle on the skin. I love how this face wash completely removes any makeup residue, impurities as well as dirt in the pores. It contains Calendula flower extract and gylcerin which helps replenish the skin without removing essential moister from your skin.  

The Ultra Facial Moisturizer is honestly the best moisturizer I have ever used. I am not just saying this! I swear, Kiehl's have perfected this moisturizer. It has two amazing qualities which for me is so important when using a moisturizer. Firstly it contains an SPF 30 in it. I mean this is soooo important, I cannot stress enough how important it is for you to apply SPF on your face on a daily basis. Now instead of having to apply a moisturizer and then a SPF, the Kiehl's Ultra Facial Moisturizer contains both the moisturizer and the SPF in one. I honestly couldn't think of anything better than that! With saying that, the second quality that literally had me obsessed with this moisturizer, is the way it makes your skin feel. It deeply nourishes the skin leaving it soft and smooth. I am not exaggerating when I say that this moisturizer makes your skin feel like porcelain. I honestly could not believe how soft my skin felt when I applied it on for the first time. (literally so obsessed!)
OMG, let's talk about this Avocado Eye Cream
I have tested many eye cream's out in the past and I have always hated the way they irritated my eyes. This Avocado Eye Cream from Kiehl's is really thick and rich, however, is not filled with chemical's that burn or aggravate the skin or eyes. It contains natural elements and avocado oil which soothes the skin and rejuvenating the skin under the eyes making you look awake and fresh. It eliminates any dark circles under the eyes as well. 
Last but not least, I have been using the magical Midnight Recover Concentrate at night before I go to bed. This facial oil really restores the skin overnight and by the morning your skin is glowing ! I apply a few drops on my face after I have cleansed my skin and then gentle massage the oil into my skin. What I love about this oil is that it is light on the skin and doesn't block your pores.
 
I am so happy with the results thus far and I can't wait to tell you more about my  #ChangeYourSkin challenge at the end of the 4 weeks. 

Keep posted for more updates on these products on my Instagram & InstaStories

HOW TO STYLE MULES | CARVELA STYLE

GUCCI MULES
Mules, Mules, Mules.... everybody is wearing mules! 

The latest and most awesome re-addition to the fashion world is a pair of mules. 
If you don't have a pair of mules, whatever the brand may be, I highly suggest getting your hands (actually feet) on a pair of mules. 
In my recent collaboration with Carvela and Spitz Shoes, I picked out this amazingly gorgeous pair of mules from the Carvela Luxe Collection. It was a tough decision to choose which colour mules I wanted to get, as I could of easily chosen the black, maroon and brown mules (but then again that would just be greedy- although in fashion one can be greedy for more right?!?) 
In the end I decided to go with these chocolate brown colour mules, as I thought they would be the most versiitle (however, the more I think about it, the more I come to the conclusion that all three colours are so versitile in any case). 
Speaking of being versitile, I think mules are pretty much one of the only shoes that can be paired with absolutely any outfit you wear! If you have no shoes to wear with your outfit, choose your mules, you won't go wrong!
I have been living in my mules ever since I received these babies and I have to say they are one of my favourite pair of shoes. Not only are they super pretty (yes I stare at my shoes a lot) but they are also such comfortable and soft shoes to wear. 
I am most definitely going to get myself the other colour mules from Carvela and yes when my budget allows for it, I hope to get my feet into a pair of Gucci mules too!

FINE DINING IN JOBURG | ROOTS RESTAURANT

Happy Monday! 
Thanks to Roots restaurant, I am lucky enough to have started my week on a very good note!

What better way to end off the weekend than with a fantastic fine dining experience at the famous Roots Restaurant located at the Forum Homini Boutique Hotel. If you have read my previous post regarding my fabulous staycation at the Forum Homini Boutique Hotel, you would have seen that I had the pleasure of enjoying a magnificent 6 course dinner and 5 course breakfast at the Roots Restaurant.

This past weekend, I had the pleasure of enjoying a delicious 4 course lunch at Roots Restaurant that was accompanied with a wine pairing. 

For our first dish we enjoyed a delicious Risotto glazed with baby carrot, roasted carrot puree, pumpkin seeds, burned corn and onion ash. The dish was paired with a glass of Lammershoek that perfectly complimented the meal. 

The second dish consisted of a Herb Crumble Sea bass topped with baby spinach, pickled shimeji, cauliflower puree, anchovies, brown rice, grilled tomato and pickled red peppers. It was then served with a glass of Zevenwacht Sauvignon Blac, which tasted so scrumptious. This dish was light and refreshing and really got my taste buds excited for what else was to come. 

For our main meal, we had the pleasure of enjoying a Roasted Venison Loin accompanied with broccoli, roscoff onion, ashed aubergine puree, snails, mashed potato, Cafe De Paris butter, chickpea puree, walnut crumble and button mushrooms. Although I am not a fan of snails, I still enjoyed most of the dish. As I love a good red wine, the Rietvallei Esteanna Red Blend, that was paired with this dish, was by far my favourite out of the lot. 

Finally, for dessert we enjoyed a delicious Coconut Pana Cotta, which was topped with peanut butter crack, mini sugar donouts, pineapple sorbet and chocolate peanut popcorn. I am not a fan of sweet dessert wine, however, the Glen Carlou, The Welder, dessert wine that was paired with our dessert was actually very tasty.

Each dish had it's own unique flavours, which complimented one another perfectly. What a pleasant lunch it was. I highly recommend booking a lunch at Roots Restaurant if you are planning a trip just outside of Johannesburg.

WHAT TO WEAR TO WIMBLEDON | TAIFUN | GERRY WEBER

One of the biggest week's in the game of tennis has officially kicked off and I'm loving the Wimbledon attire. 

It just doesn't get better than summer in London, watching the tennis and sipping of G&T's! 

The question however is, "What do I wear to Wimbledon?"

During the Wimbledon Championships Gerry Weber and Taifun have been showcasing the best Wimbledon fashion through their new summer collections. The elegant streamlines, coral & pastel colours as well as the light and breezy materials used, make for the perfect Wimbledon attire. 
In collaboration with Taifun I picked out this gorgeous summer dress from their new summer collection. The dress comes in many patterns and colours but as you may know, I am a sucker for nude tones and I absolutely love the colour of this dress. It not only makes me feel very elegant, but is also the perfect summer dress to wear out to an event such as Wimbledon. Even if you are not a Tennis fanatic like I am, this dress is perfect to wear to any summer party. It is easy to wear, matches pretty much anything paired with it and looks so flawless behind any back drop. 

In sticking with the neutral tones I paired this dress with these cute block heels and my all time favourite Fendi Peekaboo bag.

Keep posted for more outfit posts from Taifun on my Instagram page!

I hope you enjoy the Wimbledon Final this weekend!

FAVORITE SUMMER TOP | BELLFIELD CLOTHING

Hello pretty people!

Back again with a style post today. If you have been following me on Instagram you would have seen I have just recently come back from a trip away at the Forum Homini Hotel, which you can read all about over here!

Yes it is winter here in South Africa but, like I have mentioned in many of my previous winter outfit posts, the weather in South Africa during winter is really not that cold. The sun is always shining and by midday the temperature is sitting at about 22C (72F). Despite the early mornings and evenings being much colder, I suppose I cannot complain about a South African winter. 
In exactly 2 months today, I am off to the Mediterranean, (Malta to be exact) for a nice 2 week break. Although I have traveled quite extensively along the Mediterranean coast line, I have never been to the island of Malta. I am super excited to travel experience this island. If you guys have any tips on things to do, places to go and experience, please drop your comments down below! I would love to know!

Summer is obviously my favourite season and luckily I will be able to catch the last bit of the Summer weather in Europe at the end of August and then when I return, it will be spring in South Africa which is actually such a nice time of the year as it is not too hot. 
I love this blouse from Bellfield Clothing, I think it is the perfect summer blouse because it's light and breezy but it won't leave you feeling cold when the sun goes down. I love the subtle patterns along the front of the blouse and the cute bell sleeves that give it such a airy feel. This blouse suits the Mediterranean setting perfectly.

ULTIMATE LEATHER JACKET | ANY TIME ANY SEASON

A few weeks back I had the pleasure of attending the opening of the new Kelso stand-alone store at BedfordCentre with the fabulous Leanne Dlamini as our MC for the night! We were also graced by the presence of Benefit Cosmetics who worked their magic on our faces as well as the team from Edgars who let us shop to our hearts content. AMAZING RIGHT!?! 
Shopping for anything that you desire, in a completely brand new store with a completely brand new collection of garments, is really tougher than I had ever imagined. Despite this, I managed to eventually (emphasis on eventually) pick out this fabulous nude leather jacket and turtleneck jumper from the new Kelso A/W collection. 
When I used to think about the ultimate leather jacket, I always had the colour black in mind, because every cool leather jacket I saw was always black.  BUT the moment I saw this nude leather jacket from Kelso I automatically changed my mind! This to me was the ultimate leather jacket! 
Although it is not real leather (pout face), it is still extremely soft and comfy. It has pretty much been my go-to jacket this winter as it matches almost every outfit of mine. I love the nude/light tan tone of the jacket, which brightens up all my outfits. 
Let’s get over the “must have” black leather jacket train (although I would still die for one myself) and get our hands on more lighter coloured leather jackets! They look so chic and stylish and give off a more elegant flare, don’t you think?

LUXURY LIVING | FORUM HOMINI BOUTIQUE HOTEL

I love finding new places to travel to in and around Johannesburg. This city has so much to offer!
If you follow me on Instagram  you would have seen that this past weekend, I had the pleasure of staying at the most beautiful lifestyle boutique hotel just outside of Johannesburg. The Forum Homini Boutique Hotel is situated in the heart of the Cradle of Humankind and the entire design of the hotel perfectly fits the theme of this area. With each suite replicating a cave (obviously way more luxurious and chic) but still taking you back in time to where mankind originated from. I love how the hotel has really incorporated the rich history and culture with a modern flare to the entire scene. The Cradle of Humankind is the richest treasure trove of early hominid fossils on Earth and this hotel has incorporated that into its design so well.
Our suite was so spacious and modern. I mean look at that, oh so heavenly, bath tub! The heated flooring and a cute little fire place with wine and sherry to sip on, made for a cosy environment.
I highly recommend visiting Roots Restaurant, situated at the Hotel, if you are in the area or planning a little getaway out to the country side. 
Dinner was a 6 course fine dining experience accompanied by wine pairing with each dish. I can't begin to explain all the amazing flavours but all I can say is, that it is an unforgettable dining experience. The effort that is put into planning each and every dish as well as pairing it with the correct wine, made for an outstanding dining experience for me. All the flavours complimented each other so well. 
Let's talk about breakfast, the next morning! OH MY was that the most delicious start to the day. With a 5 course fine dining breakfast, I could not resist (despite still being full from the night before). Additionally, I think the restaurant served the best freshly brewed coffee ever tasted. I am no coffee connoisseur but I do know a good coffee from a bad coffee and this was by far one of the most delicious cups of coffee I've ever tasted. If I could, I would totally drive all the way to Forum Homini for their coffee and of course every meal I ate there.
For more pictures of the hotel and the experience head on over to my Instagram.
