Thank you | Vlogmas 2018 Done & Dusted

Soweto, South Africa
Hey guys if you were wondering what's this vlogmas/blogmas thing 
is all about well I have you covered. 

Well each year Youtubers and Bloggers will share how they spend their 
Christmas and the trials and tribulations they go through in decorating their rooms, houses or
buying that ever sorted out perfect Christmas Tree 
and all other Christmasy things. 

Why Vlogmas?
Vlogmas because it is pretty boring to bring the regular old content during the festive season.

So this year I attempted to vlog on the daily 
and hopefully I gain even more confidence in years to come. 

Thank you to all that tuned in to watch my videos and entered my giveaways 
as I saw my subscriber count go past the 500subbies mark which 
I have to say has been the hardest for me. 

Next year will be even better because the YouTubing bug has me good (again LOL). 

Thank you soo much for watching my vlogmas video's will see you soon.

Vlogmas Day 19 | What's In my Christmas Tree 2018

Soweto, South Africa
For the longest time we never had a Christmas Tree at home, 
but always had tinsels but in 2013 my sister and I just wanted a tree

 to love it through out the years. 

Overall I'm happy with the way the tree was decorated this year and I just 
love how affordable everything were but ended up looking great and expensive.

Local Brand Focus | Wami Clothing

Soweto, South Africa
Hey guys, hope all is well and okay. 
My dear friend has began a clothing line all for kids which 
I'm super excited to share with you and obviously my baby Asanda is the model. 

A little background:
Wami is a kid’s design fashion house owned and operated by Sindisiwe Sibanyoni. As a new mom, Sindi was frustrated when doing clothing shopping for her daughter. She found herself bombarded with a sea of pale pink and not a lot of options. As a mom interested in the latest looks she was left wanting when it came to her daughter’s clothing. With Wami, she is creating fun, trendy fashion for kids tailor-made for their needs and lifestyle as children.

A Wami kid is chic, fashion forward and confident. She stands out from her peers,
 is colourful and exuberant

Wami caters for kids from newborn to 10 years. Our focus is day wear and occasion wear that is unique and not mass produced. Durability is key, we craft high-quality garments with smooth fabric, neat seams, and beautiful detailing. The clothing feels nice to touch and wear. It is great for a growing, self-assured child.

Wami’s pieces are a collector’s dream and can be passed on from generation to generation.

As a parent you will not regret making the ultimate go-getter’s choice for your child, the Wami choice.

About the yellow “Two Perfect Piece”

The collection that you are reviewing is the “Two Perfect Piece” limited summer edition. The only sizes that are available now: newborn to 3 years old. They go for R250 and there is a discount if you buy more than 2 pairs.

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. 


Please share with me, what does self-care means to you?
By either commenting below or sharing a picture of your choice and
tagging myself @zanelemondi, @revlonsa and using #CrushOnYou #BeYourOwnObsession

See you soon

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

Bramley Cosmetics | First Impressions Post

Soweto, South Africa
Hey guys, welcome back to my blog I'm so happy with my progress this week. 
I'm actually uploading.... Sooo happy. 

So remember a while back when I shared a NEW IN post from Bramley Cosmetics (HERE) 
and I wanted to do a first impressions on them, well I finally did 1st week September I filmed 
a video and ooh boy the results shook me


Sooo Update:
I promised on the video that I will be doing a follow up on the Toner because I was 
reacting too it, mostly my eyes because I have very sensitive eyes. 
For an alcohol based toner I'm also shook that it did not dry my skin out however 
I don't think I will be gravitating towards it unless I have major pimples that need to clear 
in a short space of time. 

If you are long for very affordable products I do recommend them. 

See you soon.
