Best thing that happened to me this year? Probably meeting this @kikibeautysa lip balm. I know this sounds dramatic but it has changed my life. For real! I have tried basically everything on the market for winter lips and this is the first product I have found that genuinely makes a difference. Thank you Kiki💕

Breathe, let it go...Find peace internally and enjoy the view✨
I’ve been feeling so overwhelmed that it’s actually impacting on my physical health. Sometimes all you need to do is take a step back, remove yourself from the chaos, the pressures and demands and acknowledge that in the bigger scheme of this world, this universe...your current battle is just a drop trying to disturb an ocean.
Do something today to clear your mind - even if you only have 15minutes available

I attended the launch of @carleystudios on Friday night (as my study break). They offer state of the art slimming, wellness and skincare technology and products, many of which are firsts for Port Elizabeth. The amount of expertise under one roof is astonishing. Make sure to check out their feed and website for more information on what they offer

Limited edition @kangolza products currently available at @truworthsfashion. I love their lipstick formulas so I’m really excited to test these. I don’t like wearing makeup every day but I always reach for a lipstick before heading out. Because I’m really pale I get a lot of “are you feeling okay” comments - a hint of colour on my lips solves that problem and literally takes only a few seconds.
⠀⠀
Have you tried @kangolza lipsticks?? Make sure to swipe left as well for the stunning face gems😉

I’d much rather be doing this right now. Oh @lushsouthafrica you have my ❤️ What’s better than being able to touch, smell, test the products before you buy it. It honestly is not just a store, its a whole vibe #crueltyfreeempowerment

Don't think you have what it takes? Think about all those things you thought you would never conquer, but did. Think about all those times you thought you couldn't go on, but did. Think about all those circumstances you thought you'd never survive, but did.
You are living proof that you are capable and competent way beyond the limitations of the fears in your mind💜

Two of my go-to products for a natural fresh-faced look. You will never go wrong with @nyxcosmetics_sa ever! No matter the product. What's your favourite product from @nyxcosmetics_sa ? They're both subtle but ties together into such a gorgeous wet-natural look. ⠀⠀

Throwback to a time this in this year that I had time to play with makeup. I miss it! And cannot wait to get through the next month so that I can get back into it. Thank you for bearing with me during one of the most challenging chapters in my life.
⠀⠀
I have been up working all night and I cannot remember the last time I had a decent night's sleep. But the dream won't wait around for me to wake up.

What dreams are you chasing right now? Xx

{{MINI REVIEW}} #crueltyfreeempowerment 
I've found two haircare brands that have changed my view about the lack of quality cruelty-free shampoo and conditioner forever! I'll be reviewing the other one soon BUT
⠀⠀
Today I want to focus on these Amarula babies by @africaorganics! ⠀⠀
WHY I LOVE IT;
❤️Formulated to keep the pH and microbes on your skin and scalp in balance (the science behind this is incredible)
❤️100% Free of nasties (Sulphate etc) You really don't want this stuff on your hair and definitely nowhere near your scalp and face
❤️100% Organic *EcoCert
❤️100% Cruelty Free @bwcsa
❤️100% Vegan
❤️It smells incredible (a fresh minty scent - reminds me of the @esseprobioticskincare gel cleanser)
❤️They have different options for normal, oily, dry, treated or colored hair
❤️It's incredibly affordable
❤️I washed my hands with these swatches and I think I'll be replacing my hand wash with these as well 😂 my hands could definitely do with the pH regulation
❤️The gel textured shampoo is made up of natural biodegradable foaming agents. It will not give you the same foamy feeling as other shampoo's that are pumped full of synthetic nasties
❤️The creamy conditioner in this range is great for oily roots and dry ends (like mine) it contains Marula seed oil that feeds the hair without making it greasy
❤️ It comes in different sizes, I love these for travelling though!
.

It's mental health awareness month. I'm worried about mental health is portrayed sometimes. It's not always a happy and peaceful place. It can get real messy!

Point is, as unhealthy as it is to compare ourselves to front-cover, photoshopped images, its just as dangerous to hold yourself to an idealistic and unrealistic standard of mental health. It's okay not to be okay all the time. It really is.

Can we take a moment? How gorgeous?! Just in case it steals your heart like it did mine, use my discount code #sheerempowderment to get this Opalite Tree of Life necklace. They have it in other crystal options too.
⠀⠀
DID YOU KNOW : Opalite helps manage mood swings and reduce fatigue. It is also known to be the ideal stone for meditation.

I attended the @catcarepe fundraising event a few weeks ago and it honestly exceeded all of my expectations. As cruelty-free bloggers these are the type NGO's and success stories we need to be joining hands with.
⠀⠀
It was hosted at the Boardwalk Hotel @suninternationalza and the high tea was absolutely exquisite. The guest speakers were also brilliant. Definitely an afternoon well spent❤️ If this becomes an annual event, be sure to see me there again next year!

My favourite product from @pinkcos_ 💖🦄
A helpful tip from my instafam was to wipe off the solid glitters before using it to clean your brushes. Once you've done that...let the magic begin😍
You can use my discount code YOLANDE for 10% off💜
.
Also if you don't know how I feel about unicorns....are you even following #sheerempowderment?
.
And since we're busy exposing all things fake today...I thought it was an appropriate time to bring up unicorns, which seems to be a lot more real than some followings🙊
