Calvin Klein Store Opening Launch Party

Thursday night seen the launch of South Africa's first ever Calvin Klein store, which believe it or not has been two years in the works. The event was a in store cocktail party that was hosted at the V&A Waterfront. The exclusive invite only party saw some of the top fashion and beauty bloggers side by side with some of SA's top celebrities! The guest list included the likes of Jonathan Boynton-Lee, Da Les, ChianoSky, Leanne Dlamini and apparently Jack Parrow (but I had left by the time he got there sadly) amoung others!

 Entertainment featured a special set by DJ Das Kapital and music by DJ Dean Fuel. We were also treated to champagne and canap├ęs served by some of the most mouth watering male models! I can only imagine what that screening process must have been like!! Although honestly I did feel a bit shafted that there was not one iconic Calvin Klein model decked out in only his tighty whites, let's just all be real here that is why most of the ladies showed up after all. There was however more than enough eye candy to make up for this in the form of both male models and luxury bags, underwear, jewelry and clothing.

Getting My Style On At Style Bar

Putting my huge fear of cutting my hair aside, I decided to take Style bar up on their offer to have my hair styled. I feel so sorry for the poor stylist who had to put up with me but she was more than understanding and honestly made me feel so comfortable and confident that she was listening to me and understanding what I DIDNT want and was more than willing to give me some good advice. I walked in with explicit instructions that she was not allowed at the back of my hair with a scissors in her hand, no seriously I told her about 5 times that she would die if she even brought it up hahaha

From the time I walked in I had nothing but amazing service from everyone. I was offered the nicest cuppachino and then my consultation started. I initially went in wanting a whole new make over, I wanted to lighten my hair much more for summer and style my fringe again. I have naturally dark hair but for the last 4 or so years I have been dying it a shade darker. So unfortunately with all the build up even after almost 30 minutes my hair colour was not budging (why doesn't it stick like that when you actually want it to stay??). I then decided to just add some sun kissed streaks to my fringe and style it. I was told that if I wanted to lighten it it would take a couple of sittings so lets see how it goes. I then got the most amazing wash and head massage that actually almost put me to sleep to be honest haha I then had my fringe styled and my hair blown out, left with my hair feeling so light and bouncy.

I love how the salon looks inside they have such a modern minimalistic feel with the prettiest decor. Everytime I see their drawer units where all the stylists store their equipment I can't help lusting after them because they remind me so much of the iconic Alex 9 drawer IKEA units that every overseas beauty blogger owns (swoon)! I always have such amazing service when I go there I cannot recommend them more! They have branches in Constantia, Tygervalley, stellenbosch, Cape Gate, Palmyra, Pinehurst and De Ville.

All products that are use on you can either be bought at the Salon or through the Retail box website here.

Limited Edition Rose Gold GHD MK V Styler for Christmas Season

Okay so I decided to spoil myself with a new GHD because mine is almost 7 years old now and because I drop it on the floor almost every day so I am pretty sure its about to give in any day now (there purchase justified). Honestly I don't think there is a woman alive that doesn't own a GHD so there will be no review here, just lots and lots of pictures so you can see for yourself how gorgeous it is! ENJOY  

The award-winning GHD V Gold styler has been transformed this festive season into the glamorous limited edition rose gold styler. Styled with a glossy rose gold finish and sleek black plates, it is the definitive tool for effortless straightening and beautiful waves. Each smooth plate has a contoured, high-gloss finish, perfect for gliding through the hair effortlessly, providing the ultimate shine, on all hair types. The GHD V Rose gold styler set is the perfect gift, paired with a set of matching sectioning clips and coordinating heat resistant roll bag, essential for storing your styler away safely after each use, or during travel.

Each GHD V gold classic styler features automatic sleep mode which will switch the styler off if it has been inactive for 30 minutes. Universal voltage to ensure you get the optimum performance from your styler wherever you travel: and a cooler, lighter body providing the perfect combination for styling and creating the perfect look this party season.

They are available on the Retail box website for R2380 but is currently on promotion for R1999 (check out their website here )
