Product Review – Sweetness & Light Soya Candles

Once you step into my home, you would spot my love for candles. I have candles in every room. There is something I love about candles. Apart from the amazing fragrance that lingers long after the candles have been put out, there is just this thing about them that relaxes me; puts me in a good mood. So you can imagine how excited I was to try out these Sweetness & Light Soya Candles.

The candles here are Sweetness & Light Coconut Cream and Summer Breeze. I have been burning these for a couple of days now, and I love them. I am really impressed with the quality and the packaging of the candles. They look amazing, not like the regular candles we see around. They stand out even more with the unique personalisation. I have never had a candle with my name on it. Have you had one before?

I love them both but I prefer the Coconut Cream Candle. It reminds me of the beach holiday we had at Dubai some weeks ago. It takes me right back to the hot sunny days at the beach. Sweet memories.

Style Icon – Prince

This post is a day overdue. I meant to write the post yesterday but I had no words. I kept staring at the blank screen, hoping the words would flow, but it just didn’t, so I gave up, thought I would just mention the death of Prince, a music and style god, on social media, and that should do. Then I had a rethink, I saw so many inspiration blog posts and articles dedicated to the legend, and I just knew I had to write a post, or leave to regret it. So here is my tribute to Prince…..

prince-iconic-style-moments-31

Prince Rogers Nelson first caught my eye with the song Purple Rain. There was something about that track that did it for me, and the music video, with him and his band rocking and rolling with the guitar, and there was the lady in the band crying. It was so moving, I can never forget that music video. I have been loving Prince since then, and Purple Rain, is still one of my favourite tracks today. Apart from his amazing talent as a singer and songwriter, he is also a multi-instrumentalist, record producer, actor, and a style icon. His style had no filter, he was stylishly unapologetic with his big hair, frilly lace tops, hip-hugging bell-bottoms, and makeup. However, the best part of his style was that he owned it every time. I found his self confidence very inspiring.

Speaking of Fashion being Art yesterday; Prince was the definition of Art! He had Art written all over him.

It is sad to come to terms with the fact that we have lost another legend. He left us way too soon, but I know for a fact that just like Michael Jackson, Prince will never be forgotten. There can never ever be another Prince, but I do see a lot of him in Lenny Kravitz, Janelle Monae, and D’Angelo. Prince’s eccentric fashion sense inspired many, and his death will leave a lasting hole in the hearts of millions of people. He will continue to live through his music and we will never forget his amazing fashion sense. He changed the face of fashion and music, 2 of my greatest loves, forever.

Rest in peace Prince.

 

 

Beyoncé on Elle Magazine UK May 2016

ELLE_UK_May2016_Cover-EMBARGOED

 

Queen Bey is on the cover of Elle UK Magazine May 2016 issue and I am loving it. It feels like I have not see Beyoncé on a magazine cover in ages, so this looks refreshing. I love this Elle cover, simple but striking. I love her messy hair and light makeup, she looks very beautiful in a natural way. The white background also looks really good, this cover will surely catch many eyes on the newsstands.

In her interview with Elle, Beyoncé chats about freedom, feminism, how her new fashion line, Ivy Park, helps women love their bodies, and a lot more. Ivy Park is an active wear & athleisure collection, designed by Beyoncé in collaboration with Topshop. The collection features, flip-over waistband leggings, sport bras, sultry, mesh-accented bodysuits, snapbacks, tracksuits, functional patterned jackets, caps and hair bands. I am sure the fitness and Beyonce lovers cannot wait to get their hands on this collection.

Have a look at some of the pieces from the collection modelled by the Queen herself below and tell me what you think –

Check out the promotional video featuring Beyoncé wearing Ivy Park, and telling us the inspiration behind the clothing line;

This collection will be available from April 14 on Ivypark.com, Topshop, Net-A-Porter and Nordstorm. Prices will be ranging from $30- $200, so fitness lovers, get your bank cards ready.

 

I personally cannot wait to get my hands on this issue. I feel like I need to play catch up with one of my BFFs, lol.. I seriously admire this woman. I love majority of her songs, and music videos, and I hope this new clothing line does really well.

Beyoncé is also on the cover of the US edition, check out the cover below:
