Think Pink

The weather is playing tricks on me lately.  First thing in the morning I'm generally layered up from head to toe.  I roam around in a big fat hoodie for ages before I'm brave enough to get dressed.  By lunch time though, it's boiling and I'm pulling off all my layers.  I wore this for dinner with le bf's family on Monday evening and while taking these pictures I was so warm I thought I'd made a mistake in my clothing choice but  once we were at dinner I was so grateful I had my booties and a sweater on because it was chilly again!  

I'm off to Cape Town tomorrow and I still haven't got a clue what to pack so this could get interesting.  I guess I'll just have to pack for all kinds of weather.  I'm super excited about this trip by the way.  To see what all I get up to, follow me on Instagram @arumlilea for fun snaps of the trip.

Easter Weekend

I hope you all had a wonderful Easter Weekend!  It's been so wonderful to stay at home and relax with the family.  The season seems to have finally changed.  It's so cold in the mornings now and the leaves have started changing to the beautiful gold and bronze colours that I love.  This past weekend I've definitely had to whip out the layers.  I don't know if I'm ready for the cold whether yet!  Anyway, this is what I wore over the weekend.

Happy Easter

 Happy Easter to everyone celebrating today.  I've just been to church with the family and now we're having tea and hot cross buns, one of my favourite traditions.  We're having a big lunch with the family later and I couldn't be more excited.  I hope you have a wonderful day with your family!

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

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.
