Tuesdays Tune

You know how sometimes you hear a song and you are like woah… I need to hear that again, and again and then it stays on repeat for 43 days?  Ye, me either *looks around nervously*

Seriously though, I heard this song a couple of weeks ago and I liked it but then I heard Ghost sung on The X Factor by Paul Akister and absolutely fell in love with it so naturally, I went in search, found the song and love it.  I love both versions but if I am going to be honest, Paul just blows it out of the water.

The Essence of Halloween

Halloween… the time of year where you get to run around the streets dressed up as scary as you wish, eat as much candy as your little heart desires, play tricks on those bastards who refuse to open up their doors and puke up said candy and then eat some more.  Unfortunately, Halloween has never really been big in South Africa but that’s never really stopped us from trying to make it a thing.

The lovely folk over at Essence sent me an amazing hamper of products to use in order to recreate the following Halloween look…

Friday Five

Its been a while since I did a Friday Five post and honestly, I missed it a little.  I missed sharing little bits and pieces of what I have been loving in life.  In case you don’t know what my Friday Five post series is about, it’s basically a post that gets put up every other Friday sharing my favourite quote, song, blog, product and watching/reading that I have been loving!

My current favourite lip products

A while ago (I think it was one of my first posts on Lipglossed Ninja) I did a post about my favourite lip products (you can read that post here) and I figured it was high time for me to do a re-cap on my current favourite lip products.  These are the products that are in my handbag at all times and I chop and change as I go.

Firstly, I need to point out how drastically my lip favourites have changed because 5 of them are lipsticks and I remember a year or so ago that I almost absolutely refused to use lipsticks because they dried my lips out so badly.  Now, I find that if I apply a clear gloss over them or simply use a little bit of lip balm under them, my lips stay incredibly moisturised.

Life Lately

Firstly, I would probably need to point out the obvious blog change, both in theme, layout and name.  With all the changes that are going on around me I just figured that I should try with a fresh start (not the first and certainly wont be the last of many) to the blog.

The name change, well, I figured it should be more personal since I want to take my blog in a more personal direction.  It will focus on my life, my loves, yes, there will still be beauty related items going on (probably more than what I want to have going on) and then the added category of travel.
