Hi lovelies, The weekend that past, I went to Langebaan to visit my family. What a beautiful weekend!! The weather was off the charts, the food I had (which, lets be honest is most important- hahaha) was smack-that delicious and the entire weekend was just one for the books!!

Even though it was a weekend away I didn’t want to look like a wreck, so I packed in what I thought is absolute essentials for going away. See it as a “what you need in your bag”.


I got sent these make up products from Cosmetix SA and these are definitely a big MUST in your bag! I am a big fan of Essence Products so naturally I was stoked to be adding these to my trip. Not only are they great to be added to your make-up collection but they’re an awesome brand because they do not test their products on animals!

The Essence New Camouflage is the perfect concealer to cover any dark circles or weird tones under your eyes. You can either apply it with your fingers or a brush (preferably the concealer brush also from Essence) It is so smooth and you see results within seconds! Can’t be walking around looking like a zombie so this is definitely a must.



The sun might not be out as regularly as we would like so to keep your cheeks looking perky and fresh I use the Silky Touch Blush in “10 adorable” shade. A pop on both cheeks and you’re ready to go! Blush is always something I keep in my bag at events or parties, this size is perfect for when Im using a small bag.



The Essence Sun Club Matt Bronzing Powder is a yes!yes!YES!! For a natural tan with sun kissed skin apply this with either a Blush Brush or Powder brush along your face and neckline (to even it out) I love how easy it is to apply onto my face without falling onto my clothes. It comes in two shades for lighter or darker skin tones. This is great as it gives you “sun-kissed” without even needing the sun (pssst….great for when winter comes as well!) 



To accentuate my eyes I used the I Love Nude eyeshadow (coffee bean). This is perfect just to add some form to your eyelids and the silky matt finish creates a natural look. This ranges from subtle beige to rosé to soft brown, designed for all skin colours.
