Girls, if you are anything like me, a monthly or weekly facial, manicure and full body massage is my dream come true. A very special friend of mine, Katy Jennings, is the therapist and owner of Spruce, a stunning beauty salon tucked away in Morningside, Durban. One of my regular and all-time favorite treatments is her Esse 100% Organic Deep Cleanse Facial, it is the ultimate head-to-toe pamper. Whenever I leave Spruce, I feel fresh, calm and rejuvenated. Not only is Katy the best in the business, as far as I’m concerned but her prices are unbelievable and unbeatable. The Esse 100% Organic Deep Cleanse Facial is R250, an hour long Full Body Massage is R320 and a Spruce Manicure is R150. Katy also introduced me to Esse, a locally produced, vegan, 100% organic, considerate of the environment and totally affordable organic skincare range she stocks. Between the pamper, product and price, Spruce is indeed ‘beautifully balanced’.

Birthday’s really are the best days! My 23rd Birthday was filled with love from my friends and boyfriend, vida e caffe, prezzies, flowers, cupcakes, glitter, suprises, florals, cocktails, flamingos and I even got to meet designer Henry Holland and Pixie Geldof. So blessed and thankful to have such beauties in my life!

I just love this pastel blue wall we came across this morning, while on the way to work. Tuesday blues perhaps! We both happened to be wearing neutral tones with pops of solid colours today.

It’s been a little chilly here in Durbie Durbz so to keep warm, I layered my River Island leopard leggings with a Zara chunky knit and a leopard and colour blocked scarf. I must admit I’m not one to wear leggings but I’m lovin’ these leopards of mine. Hat from Forever 21, winged bag from Bershka and and cut-out ankle booties from Legit.
