Rekindling the Lizzy Love Affair

Rediscovering the brand that inspired many childhood dreams…

Lizzy has been one of my favourite brands since teenage days. I was obsessed with becoming a beach bum, learning to surf and becoming the ultimate surfing babe.

Now I live near the ocean but still not a surfing babe. It’s one the bucket list if I can get over the fear of getting eaten or chased by sharks.

Over the years the market has filled with plenty of clothing brands and Lizzy somehow slipped off my Radar until very recently.

A week or so ago I was lucky enough to win a few Lizzy items and was reminded of why I fell in love with the brand in the first place.

Their clothing is top of the line and caters for young and old. I am obsessed with my new Mirian Ladies Beanie. It’s so pretty and will definitely be a fashionable add on to all winter outfits.

The main reason I rekindled my love affair with Lizzy is their secret socks… Wait What? I know it sounds crazy but until recently I hated secret socks. They always seem to slip off while walking and always annoy me on hikes or active sessions.

With my prize I received two pairs of Lizzy secret socks and I’m definitely purchasing more. These secret socks might seem ordinary but when you look inside you’ll find an inner heel silicone insert.

Basically these inner heel silicone inserts prevent the socks from slipping off and ensure you get to enjoy all activities without having to pull your socks back up.

You can purchase a pair at R29.99 from their online store and there are different colours available for both men and women.

Shop their end of range sale

I think I got a little too excited because currently I’m stalking the brand for all sales and new product releases.

Which might be a good thing because their End of Range sale is offering you superb products at up to 40% off. The sale is on men’s, ladies and kids apparel and will continue until the 5th of June.

It might be winter but you’ll be able to purchase new swimwear for amazing prices before summer. With payday around the corner it’s the perfect time to add to card and stock up on amazing goodies.

If you’re a fitness enthusiast then the secret socks are a must-add. These aren’t on sale but at R29.99 a pair they’re a steal.

New Releases

Nowadays most people are promoting going green and making conscious decisions to save the planet. If you believe in zero waste and reusable items then you’ll love the Lizzy/ Lizzard flasks section.

You’ll find flasks in different sizes and colours that can be used on the go to get your coffee fill. They also have a stainless steel straw set with a straw cleaner. These are perfect to keep in your bag and use at restaurants or events. Do your part in saving the planet by declining one plastic straw at a time.

My next must-buy from Lizzy/ Lizzard is their new Tumblers. These double walled stainless steel cups come in two sizes: 240ml and 350ml.

The gorgeous black design will be perfect for those Instagram captures and the flask is ideal for camping or taking your coffee on the go when running late for work.

These cups can hold anything from water to wine and guarantee no flavor transfer. The cup is made from 18/8 stainless steel which is the highest quality and gives the cup lifetime durability.

Head over to Lizzy/Lizzard and shop the new tumblers now. Don’t forget to take a peek at their amazing end of range products on sale now.

Mother’s Day Gift Guide

A Quick Mother’s Day Gift Guide

No matter how old you get, you will always get to turn to mom in times of trouble. Our mothers have multiple jobs including caring for us. This nonpaying job is one they’ve been sentenced to for life and they do it willingly.

Moms truly are super heroes who save us on a daily basis. On Sunday the 12th of May 2019 we have the opportunity to celebrate our mothers properly. Make this Mother’s day extra special by getting her something truly iconic.

One great thing about Moms is that they don’t expect you to spend your entire paycheck. They do however love when you’ve put some thought into their gift.

Moms deserve the best but that doesn’t mean it has to cost you an arm and a leg. Here are some fabulous Mother’s Day gift options from the local online stores.

Treats & Drinks

Huguenot Fine Chocolates

There’s nothing better than adding a little chocolate to the spoils. Huguenot Fine Chocolates creates all their chocolates with love. There are different filling and if you want to make this Mother’s Day extra special why not get mom a box of her own. Forget about store bought chocolate, support the local brands and give mom a treat she’s never had before.

Tealyst

Early mornings sipping coffee or tea with mom is always best. If she’s a tea lover check out Tealyst and buy mom a deliciously flavored loose leaf tea. If you’re not sure which tea she’ll like you can always get a once-off subscription box. These boxes are filled with different flavored teas giving mom a variety to taste and enjoy. A once-off box will set you back R299 but will leave mom with a huge smile on her face.

Coffee Drops Co

For the caffeine craving mom’s there’s a new coffee subscription box in town. Why not get mom a once-off box of beans or ground coffee. The subscription box includes 4 x 80g bags of coffee from different local roasters. Not only will mom have plenty of fresh coffee to enjoy but she’ll also get to try local brands. If you order now, mom will be receiving her Coffee box on the 14th of May.

Every mom deserves a nice keepsake she can wear to remember how loved she is. If you’re looking for something extra special these local jewelers will be your best bet.

For the pet loving mom’s the sterling silver necklaces from Jessica Jane Jewellery is a must. You can get mom a pendant of her very own fur kid.

Then there’s the gorgeous Wanderlust Lockets where you can buy mom her own locket set. My absolute favourite is the Sapphire Sky set. Mom can boast with a gorgeous necklace that serves as a constant reminder of how valued she is

Tora Grace Samsara bracelets

One thing I’ve found is that mom’s love receiving personalized gifts. Sure they pretty much adore anything you get them, but there’s something about a personalized item that makes them shed tears of joy.

Tora Grace is known for their spectacular range of Samsara Bracelets. Most already have writing one them so you can pick from that selection or you can Design Your Own. If you’ve got a special message or even an inside joke between you and mom you can engrave it on a Samsara Bracelet for mom.

Tora Grace has even compiled a few Mom Stacks and the good news is they’re on sale.

Chambord® Ladies Lunch & Celebrity Panel Discussion

The international liqueur brand is hosting a day of spoils for the ladies. The event will be taking place from 11 am to 16:00 at 15 on Orange Hotel, Autograph Collection in Cape Town.

Chambord is a premium, all-natural black raspberry liqueur produced at a traditional French Chateau in the Loire Valley of France. Chambord is a royal treat added to champagne and cocktails.

The festivities will start at 11am allowing you to take in the beautiful surroundings and sip on berry-licious cocktails. If you enjoy feeling like a true mademoiselle this is the event for you. You’ll be surrounded by local stars, treated to quality cocktails and the best snacks.

DJ Anthea Scholtz will fill the air with cool beats and you and the girls get to enjoy the VIP treatment. FoxBox will be treating you to brow threading and manicures, Rain will help you relax with neck and hand massages and make-up touch-ups will be done at the Gorgeous2Go beauty station.

Looking to up your game as a Girl Boss? During the event there will be a panel discussion lead by KFM presenter Mamohau Seseane. Prepare for a day of learning about dressing the part, morning routines, living a balanced lifestyle, incorporating yoga and meditation rituals. As well as how to stay grounded, self-motivated and tips on beauty hacks. You’ll also walk away with knowledge on the best-practice work ethics.

After gathering all the need to know information on being a Girl Boss you get to enjoy a second and third course luncheon. During lunch Francesca Biancoli will treat guests to a superb live music performance.

It’s the ultimate glam event where you can enjoy being a sassy lady with brains and drive. As someone who has attended a Chambord event before I can personally tell you it will definitely be worth your while. Even without a gift bag or prizes up for grabs, the vibe, food, beauty treatments and cocktails more than make up for the ticket cost.

It’s an event that will leave you inspired, motivated and definitely feeling like a gorgeous lady. The bonus is that if you’ve got plans the evening you can get your make-up, eyebrows and nails done for free during the event.
