Today we’re loving…

You should all be well aware that monochrome is having a moment – a big one for that matter! Which is why we’re loving these quirky Converse and Marimekko sneakers (R499). A fun take on one of the most iconic shoes, it doesn’t get more playful than these! Wear these polka-dot print shoes with a simple pair of denims or stockings if you’re wearing a dress – or even better, bring out your more playful side and team them with a wacky pair of socks.

Okay, so we know spot busters are not exactly GLAMOURous products, but this one has us quite excited! Why? Well, Vichy’s Normaderm Hyaluspot (R175) not only treats the spot but also forms an invisible ‘bandage’ over it to prevent further bacterial infection. This action promises to rid a spot in 48 hours flat! Clever, very clever.

A potent combo of salicylic acid and LHA (LHA, bizarrely stands for Beta-lipohydroxy acid, which a derivative of salicylic acid) kills 99.9% of the bacteria in the spot within two hours of application. While they’re working below, hyaluronic acid is working above to isolate and cover the spot from further infection. This ‘bandage’ is totally invisible and you can apply make-up over it.

You’ll find this smart little tube at Dis-Chem, leading pharmacies and selected Clicks stores nationwide.

We pretty much fell in love with these shoes when we saw them on the runway in Anmari Honiball’s show at SAFW. So, when our junior fashion ed came into work wearing these this morning you can just imagine our excitement! 

 

Designed by former GLAMOUR gals, Roxanne and Robyn, the fashionable duo have formed a bespoke shoe brand called Robyn and Roxanne. Available in three different colours (pink, blue and black) we simply can’t wait to add these to our shoe closet!

 

The leather flatforms retail for R750. Visit their Facebook page or place your order via email: robynandroxanne@gmail.com

Sun exposure, air-conditioning and late nights can leave fading tanned skin dry and sallow at the end of the summer season. If your face is looking in dire need of a moisture boost, then it will be crying out for a good hydrating mask! This should become a beauty cabinet must-have going into autumn to intensely moisturise and rejuvenate the skin.

 

Be sure to invest in a high-quality product like Elizabeth Arden’s Visible Difference Hydration Boost Night Mask (R280), a luxurious nighttime treat for the skin. Cleanse before bedtime and apply a few good squeezes of the thick, white cream in broad strokes across the forehead, down the T-zone area, outwards over the cheeks and up to the jawline, avoiding the delicate skin around the eyes.

 

Enriched with plant botanicals, the active ingredients in the formula produce a tingly, cooling sensation for a few minutes after application before settling down. Despite the clay-like texture, you’re fortunately left without that my-face-might-crack unease while waiting for the recommended 5-10 minutes to be up. Wash off thoroughly with warm water and pat dry to finish. Skin is left feeling clean (but not tight), hydrated and impossibly smooth to touch.

Worn by the likes of Rihanna, Taylor Swift and Jessica Alba, if you follow celeb fashion at all you’ll be familiar with on-trend varsity jackets!

 

We’re loving this printed one from Cotton On (R299) because the pretty pattern offsets the masculine shape of the jacket. Team with a pair of high-waisted skinnies a tee or denim shirt and a pair of super-cool sneakers to get this look bang on-trend!

We’re crazy for this clever tanning gel! The Xen Tan Luminous Gold Gel (R380) is clear but gives instant, glowing results – and just 3 hours later develops into a rich, bronzed tan. Your complexion looks healthy and naturally luminous thanks to tiny gold flecks that sit on the skin.

Best of all, it dries incredibly fast and because it’s clear it won’t come off on your clothes, has a light tropical scent and doesn’t leave your skin sticky. Do you really need any more reasons? We thought not…

It’s available at selected salons and spas countrywide. To find yours, contact 021 911 3890.

We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: you can never have too many white shirts! We’re loving white shirt with a leather collar (love!) by Georgie B (R459) from Style36.co.za, because it’s a classic item with a twist.

 

Team it with a pair of tailored pants, your favourite jeans, a cute printed skirt (like above)…or just about anything, really! This is one staple you certainly won’t get sick of this season.

14 hours of gorgeous lip colour? Yes please! Maybelline has answered our calls, and released a no-dragging, non-drying, lightweight long wear lip colour range, Maybelline SuperStay 14Hr Lipstick (R129.95 each).

We’ve tested it a few times, and it stays, we promise. We haven’t tried it to the 14-hour mark, but it did make it through breakfast, lunch and two launches – any lip colour that does that gets our vote!

It’s available in stores now in nine gorgeous shades: On and On Pink, Infinitely Fuchsia, Ultimate Blush, Mauve Toujours, Always Plum, Stay With Me Coral, Non-Stop Red, Ravishing Rouge and Lasting Chestnut. Very clever, see what they’ve done there? We get it, they last long…

With Justin Bieber having already landed on SA soil and the Bieber Fever spreading like wildfire throughout the country, we’re loving his fragrance Girlfriend (R495 for 50 ml).

 

The perfume is fun and flirty with crisp notes of mandarin and juicy blackberry, exotic floral notes of pink freesia and star jasmine, and sultry notes of orchid and luminous musk. So just because you can’t be his real girlfriend, doesn’t mean you can’t smell like one! #BieberFever

With the release of Baz Luhrman’s adaptation of The Great Gatsby (coming out on 27 May), we’re all about going Gatsby!

 

Today we’re loving this gold sequin clutch (R1050) by Ted Baker at Stuttafords. A modern update on a typical clutch from the roaring 20s, we can’t wait to team this statement bag with a black LBD or blazer and tailored pants. Is there a better way to add a touch of GLAM? We think not!
