Prom Queen

It’s been a crazy year of new jobs and hard graft so I gladly welcomed our annual Christmas party, with open arms. This year, it was prom themed so I went all out with an OTT skirt, crimped hair and regrettable glitter. As per usual, the Gloss Lady and I had to document the occasion with a cringey photo shoot, so check out what I wore!

Courtney Shaw Skin Care and Body Therapy is running a little special for all my readers!

As a girl, I have gone to numerous salons to get my nails did, eyebrows waxed and several other necessary beauty treatments/tortures. I have never really become a regular, normally just going with whatever was easiest. But it seems, I have become a die-hard customer of Miss Courtney Shaw’s, without even realising…

Courtney is an ethereal pixie of a woman, who I see most regularly to get my manicure fix. I keep going back for her company as well as this special shellac treatment that has kept my nails stronger and purdier than ever. Seriously, I have never been able to maintain long nails until now – I am a women obsessed!

You can also get a string of other treatments done here and I have to say that I have been as satisfied with everything else that I have had done. I would genuinely and seriously recommend trying out this quaint little salon for your next eyelash tint or pedi.

Seeings as I believe whole-heartedly in the power of a good mani (my go-to pick me up), Miss Shaw is offering for ya’ll to get your Shellac mani for just R180. All you have to do to qualify for this discount, is make your booking and tell her that “Jenna sent you”.

Ok so it needn’t sound as gangsta as that, just give her a heads up that you were referred by Yours Truly, before the end of May.

Please send me pics if you get it done! Would love to share in the unadulterated mani-happiness!

Some things that got love from me this past week

image

1. This rad little guy I purchased from Shoppe. Decorated him with some colouful felt bunting to create a “ Day of the Dead” decor vibe in my bedroom.

2. The best thing about living in a house full of girls is that there is an abundance of fresh flowers around.This latest bunch is from my lover.

3. My friend Emma roped me into a girly meetup of getting a manicure in the middle of Gateway. I can proudly say that I have no regrets and am LOVING this long lasting, express mani from Laka. I even bought the colour! To top it off, my mid finger rings from Sass Diva are making me very happy.

3. Lurh me these Adidas leather look sneakers. Comfy and cool street vibe kicks for me!

4. Yay for this cool skullboy shirt design with deep meanings that I am oblivious to. I don’t know much about the Tiger Bloods but I do know that I dig this tee that I picked up from DiRTY COLLECTiVE.

5.  Studded denim jacket from Mr P, is perf for the Red Lips and Studs Event that I am hosting for Women’s Day this week. ( PS: You’re all invited.)

6. The boyfriend’s mom just got back from galavanting in Nice, France. Knowing my love for semi-precious stones, she brought me back these fluorite pendants. They are meant to be worn until the string breaks, illustrating the temporary nature of things in life and the need to detach ourselves from the material. Fluorite is a mesmerizing, cloudy stone for healing and peace- two things I don’t ever need less of in my life!

7. Lord knows I’m a voodoo child. Jimi meets Mac with this City Mob decal. Hendrix and Steve Jobs – two of the best things to come out of the 70’s!
