Batiste Dry Shampoo

Okay, let's be honest.  We're all looking for short cuts in our busy lifestyles.  I'm one of those people that always seems to be in a rush.  I've got spare shoes and blazers in my car and I take my make up bag wherever I go because I'm always in a mad dash from here to there.  Since I've started working it's been ten times worse.  Today I'm going to share something with you that is going to save you so much time.  This little pearl of wisdom comes in the form of Batiste dry shampoo.

I picked up this dry shampoo at Clicks to give it a try and I immediately fell in love with it.  I've always been the girl that always washed my hair every two to three days.  This dry shampoo actually doubles that length of time and keeps my hair looking so fresh in that period.  Not only does it keep my hair clean, it also adds such a fantastic amount of volume that I can't even get from a good blowout.

I've tried two types of Batiste dry shampoo, the Tropical one which smells like summer and the XXL volume.  I'd say my favourite is the XXL Volume because I'm simply a lover of big hair and it does add more volume than the Tropical one.  They both keep my hair clean and looking great throughout the week though so I tend to alternate between them.  These products have really impressed me and even more so because I get to do more in the evenings than merely sorting out my hair.

What to wear to a sports game

H&M sweater | Zara denims | Cotton On sneakers | cap {old} | Scaft {gifted} | Michael Kors watch | ALDO purse

Over the weekend I went to watch a rugby game at the stadium and I thought I should do a post on what to wear to a sports game.  Le bf plays basketball for his university and I generally go and watch him play his weekend games.  While I'm all for heels and cute dresses, I'm afraid that just doesn't quite cut it in a stadium or on a basketball court.  

This is what I wore to Sunday's basketball game.  I generally opt for jeans, a great sweater and a scarf.  The sports stars might be working up a sweat but I freeze on the side lines!  Practical shoes are a key element in this sort of outfit.  You don't want to be climbing stairs in the middle of big crowds in heeled boots.  For the rugby game I threw on something similar and my leather jacket too because I refuse to shiver when I should be enjoying myself and I'm so glad I did.

Did you get up to anything exciting this weekend?  It would seem that I had a very sporty weekend even though I'm nothing of the sort.

Life through my iPhone

It's Friday and I couldn't be more excited!!!  This week has been such an incredible one so I thought I'd share a few of the snapshots I've taken on my iPhone recently to fill you in on what's been happening.  This weekend I'm having a braai/bbq with friends and heading off to watch rugby which is something I honestly never do.  Perhaps I should do a post on what to wear to a sports game.  What do you think?  Anyway, excuse my ramblings, here are we go: 
1.  Last night I attended the Mr Price #mrpvip event and they had a s'mores bar. A s'mores bar guys!!!  With a curtain of marshmellows and sugary clouds of happiness.  2.  At the Woolworths #stylebynight event on Wednesday, Irina and I found this mirror and just had to make use of it.  3.  Shashi Naidoo and I are obviously quite taken by the whole hats and faux fur trend this season.  4.  Yummy virgin cocktails.
1.  Le bf and I had a movie date.  2.  I'm currently obsessed with these shoes.  Bright yellow does stirs a dance party within my soul.  3.  I came home one evening to this beautiful delivery of champagne glasses and the most precious card from Amy of Cupcakes & Couture. 4. I'm loving midi rings and red nails.

1.  Lunch date with le bf at Tasha's with these delicious burgers!  2.  Nothing beats relaxing on my bed with tea.  3.  When catching up over "coffee"  I generally opt for a chai latte (not a fan of coffee but a huge fan of cinnamon).  4.  Sun-downers on Fridays should always look like this!

Have a wonderful weekend!  Thank you so much for reading!

So these floral pants have been working a serious rotation.  I'm trying to get maximum wear out of them before the winter weather sets in.  Hope you're having a great day!  Thanks for reading!

Weekend Basics

Foschinis hat | Woolworths tee | LEGiT pants | Woolworths heels | Blackcherry bag | Sass Diva necklace | 
Michael Kors watch

I bought this hat a couple weeks ago and I've been dying to wear it but hadn't had the chance until this weekend.  It's still very warm during the days so whatever I wear needs to be light enough for the heat but also warm enough that I only need a light jacket in the evenings.  With the beginning of the change of season on our hands, I thought it would be the perfect time to whip out my hat.  I'm a little bit crazy about it!

This weekend I spent out with my friends.  We've had dinners, drinks, lunches and celebrated a birthday over burgers and milkshakes which was so much fun!  I also went a little blonder this weekend so my hair is now the lightest I've been since high school!  You can't see it in this picture but in my next post you will be able to!  Did you get up to anything exciting this weekend?  I'd love to know!
