Winter Skincare Routine | Collab With Madeleine

Welcome back to my blog everyone. Today back with a Winter Skincare routine! As much as I love makeup, a good skincare routine is essential for a blank canvas and I achieve this by using unfragranced and mostly natural products on my face, as my skin is can be quite sensitive. My skin gets flaky  in winter, but it's usually normal to oily. Though I don't suffer from acne, I do get the occasional hormonal breakout, but I've fallen into the routine of creating a good skincare routine for myself to keep spots at bay.



The first thing I do to achieve this is remove my eye makeup. I cannot stress how important this step is. I like to use the Rituals Mild Eye Makeup Removeron a cotton round and gently wiping my eyes with it until the makeup is off. Then I proceed to wipe the rest of my makeup off with makeup wipes from

StyleTone Unboxing | First Impressions + Review

I recently came across StyleTone through a Facebook ad. Admittedly, I tend to scroll past those, but I have been looking for European beauty subscription boxes for the longest time. I know in the United States (US), Birchbox, Glossybox etc are quite popular, but since I don't live in the US, it was difficult to get ahold of a subscription box without it costing me a limb. Luckily, I stumbled across StyleToneand let me tell you, I was super pleased with the contents of this gorgeous beauty box.

Agenderflux | Introducing Luke Ruiters

Hello everyone! It's been a while since I've had a guest post, but today I'm back with a bang and featuring 22 year old fashion intern, Luke. Luke, who describes themself as a "vibrant 22 year old with big hair and big dreams", recently designed a graduate collection for the Design Academy of Fashion (DAF) in South Africa. 






"When I was about 6 or 7 years old I was obsessed with my mother’s style and her wardrobe and I was so confused as to why I don’t own a dress? I made sure I had barbies and I would create little outfits for them with old t-shirts that I’d cut up , I would tie them around my barbies." 



"My love for fashion started there and I was obsessed ever since.My style is bold but clean at the same time, I’m experimental and very comfortable with my clothing choices. I studied fashion design with the intention to actually start a career in fashion styling as that's  more my gig and where I see myself going in the future."
