My heart is Out of Order…

Heart ooo

So this week I had probably one of the most terrifying experiences of my health journey. I was sitting at my desk, like every other Tuesday afternoon, after work, getting ready to hit the textbooks when I lost all feeling in the right side of my body – face, arm, hand, leg and foot.

A little birthday vacation


I recently celebrated my 21st birthday so we – my parents, brother and his girlfriend and then myself and my best friend – decided to go away somewhere quaint and surrounded by nature. My mom chose the place – Klip River Cabin in Grabouw.  Continue reading

Cosmetics switch

So for the last few months, I’ve been using the Rimmel London Lasting Finish foundation and it worked fantastically until the last few weeks. The latest tube had started causing skin irritation and a tingling sensation all over my face as well as having a much more of an “orange” tint to it even though I used the same shade month after month.

A friend of mine who is also a make-up wizard mentioned the NYX Cosmetics line and how it was cruelty free – it falls into my lifestyle as I’m on the road to being vegan and spend all my free time at an animal rescue organisation helping to fix the damage humans cause to the innocent furkids – and also it is completely safe. 

I did a tester on my skin and waited 24 hours but viola! NO REACTION!

I was so happy and relieved that it hadn’t caused any burn or break outs or dry and flaky skin. 

So I went and had a mini shopping haul and purchased NYX foundation, concealer, powder, liquid liner, setting spray and primer. 

Combine this amazing brand with my amazing Nimue face wash and moisturiser and I now have healthy and happy skin again.

NYX has great coverage and great products and me having such a sensitive skin, it also keeps it clear after a full day of wear. 

Let’s just say I’m a happy customer!

I was so excited by the product that I had a little play and experiment session. 😀
Happy skin and cruelty free make-up makes me a very happy Megan.
