I was Featured on Byrdie.com!

Jane Wonder || The Secret to South African Women's Amazing Skin, as featured in Byrdie.com

Hiya everyone ♡

A few weeks ago I received an email from a lady named Lindsey. She said she was from Byrdie and wanted to know if I would help them with an article. 

I was very skeptical. Why would Byrdie contact me, of all people? I am certainly not the authority when it comes to beauty blogging. Where did she get my name? Is she really from Byrdie?

So, I first checked the email address. It was lindsey.***@byrdie.com, so that seemed legit. I then went on a little internet stalk, as one does, and found that Lindsey has written for not only Byrdie, but also for StyleCaster - these are two websites I follow religiously so I was literally jumping up and down from excitement and Skyping my best friend to share the news.

Lindsey asked me for help on an article about skincare 'secrets' from South Africa, something native to our country that isn't obvious to their (mostly) American readers. I assumed, with my many concerns, that she must have contacted a few local beauty bloggers and in order to be featured I better respond a quickly as possible with a stellar recommendation. 

I sent her some info on Fynbos, which is native to the west coast of South Africa, and two days later she posted the article! I almost threw up when I saw my name and blog name on Byrdie.com, my heart was pounding and the feeling of 'about to pass out' was upon me. 

This is definitely a career highlight for me, I hope that you share the happiness with me.

{TRAVEL} 7 Must-Visit Stores on Oxford Street, London

Hiya everyone 

London is one of my fave cities in the world. With my sister living in London, I visit quite often. Being the shopper that I am, Oxford Street is a mecca to me. Whilst we have been lucky enough for some of these stores to be brought to South Africa, we still can't beat the sheer size and ranges available at these flagship stores in one of the busiest high streets in the world.

As you may already know, Foschini is running a competition to win a trip to LONDON FASHION WEEK in February next year! Winning is so simple so I thought I would remind you of how to enter and also tell you the BEST shops to visit whilst you visit London when you win the competition (positive thinking, people!).

Now, onto the shopping part... I have been shopping in Oxford Street so many times that I now reckon I am adequately equipped to tell you the BEST shops running down this busy street. Keep in mind that there are probably 5 H&Ms (easily) down the street, lucky for you I know the best one! 

I will give you the address of each of them, a note on why that store is the best, a pic of the store off Google Maps so that you can recognise it when you visit, and it's position on the map. How handy is that?

{BEAUTY} L.A. Girl Glazed Lip Paint Review and Swatches


Hiya everyone ♡

When L.A. Girl bought out their lip paints and matte lipgloss, everyone went crazy! They were selling out of Dischem faster than a Black Friday sale. After visiting three Dischem stores, I managed to get my hands on 4 of the Glazed Lip Paints.

#ThinkPink with Foschini + GIVEAWAY

Jane Wonder || #ThinkPink with Foschini + GIVEAWAY

Hiya everyone 

As you may know, I am a Foschini brand ambassador, also known as a Fashion Friend. You may have also seen me in the Foschini store windows throughout the month of October.

Foschini ran a campaign over October for Breast Cancer Awareness Month. We encouraged you to #ThinkPink and to #PledgePink too. But to be breast cancer aware doesn't confine itself to just one month a year, we need to continue to #ThinkPink - and that's where the giveaway comes in...
