Selfcare Tips ft Revlon Pink Happiness CrushOnYou plus Giveaway ***closed***

Hey guys, hope all is well and okay. 
Today I'm sharing with you my thoughts on the REVLON Pink Happiness Crush on You fragrance,
 I will also add some self care tips because even though we might not agree on it 2018 has been one of those challenging years 
for me and doing a little bit of "me time" helped me alot. 

The reason behind the fragrance: 
There's a little space inside every woman where dreams of pure simple love can be found
- untainted by the pressure
of the adult world. Escape into this world and explore your romantic dreams. A world of unadulterated love - tinted with Pink Happiness. 
The Claim: 
A blend of warm, oriental scents, infused with a burst of sweet fruity notes 
and a delicate touch of vanilla. 
The fragrance has touches of grapefruit, blackcurrant and apricot which means its a very sweet fragrance but not over powering because of the oriental spices.

The product:
If you are familiar with REVLON's Pink Happiness First Love, Pink Happiness Crush on You is the older more mature sister, who has had her heart broken, some goals not achieved and is not going to give up and is learning to take care of herself and 
learning to put herself first; and choosing to love yourself isn't vanity, it's sanity. 
My top 5 Self-Care Tips: 

De-cluttering: Nothing gives me more joy than a clean easy to work on area. 
Masking and Chilling: Whether I wear a 3 minute or 30 minute mask I like taking a few minutes off just sitting and being quite and just reflect. 
Planning:Lately planning my day or weekly posts for the blog has done wonders for me because I can be more focused the daily tasks that need to be done first.  
Chilling or Eating out: Aaah the sweetness of doing nothing, sometimes as women we tend to be guilty when we take time off but going out with friends and family does bring a little happiness because we take a little break from routine daily tasks like cooking and cleaning 
Spending time with kiddio: Spending real time with my baby other than focusing on a million things like laundry, cellphone and other million things we do around the house. 
Love yourself first and everything else falls into place. Who better to Crush on that yourself?
Please let me know what being #BeYourOwnObsession means to you and how to you 
practice self-care.

Cadbury Festive (Giveaway **closed**) - How to Decorate Your Christmas Table on a Budget

 Hey guys hope all is well and okay, if you have been following the blog for a while you will know how much I love Christmas and all things festive, this year it is not going to change.
I have teamed up with Cadbury SA to share with you tips on how to set up a Christmas Table on a budget (stay tuned for giveaway details below). 

While spending more money during the festive season is the norm, I like to save where I can and use items available around the house and if they are not available I like using items that can be found at discount stores. 
 My theme for this Christmas is gold and more gold and the pictures in this post are just a hint of what is coming. I like using a traditional white dinner set, simple cutlery, everyday glasses, Christmas décor from the previous years and this year I’m incorporating the Cadbury Chocolate Treat size as part of my main treat in my table as this will give my family something to nibble on while we wait for the leg of lamb to finish roasting.

The Cadbury Baubles each contain 7 mini treats and there are 4 of them to collect, which I must say the Cadbury Christmas Tree and Baubles make for a nice decorative piece on my Christmas Table. 

Win A Cadbury Festive Range Hamper:
1x Cadbury Whispers slab
1x Whispers Snowballs
2x Cadbury Baubles – with 7x treat size (Flake, Bubbly, Cadbury Dairy Milk and Top Deck) inside each Bauble
1x Small Green Christmas Tree

All you need to do is: 
All tag two friends mention on my Cadbury Social Media post

African Extracts | Get Unready With Me

Soweto, South Africa
African Extract carry some of my favourite affordable cruelty free products at the drugstore. 
I had to share a mini get unready with me, 
because the 3-in- mask and the make-up remover are 
my ultimate African Extract products. 

The 3-in-1 wash, scrub and mask will leave your skin feeling sooo refreshed and cleaned 
I vouch for it. I also like the eye make-up remover because it is oil based so you know that 
it will removed layers and layers of make-up in a few swipes.
