Fine things make me happy

So, from previous blog posts I'm sure you can all tell that I like the finer things in life and it extends from my car to my clothes to my eye wear (see previous post) and even to fragrances.

Speaking of fragrances..... I try out fragrances at least once a month but probably closer to three times a month! I absolutely love great fragrances by great brands and mostly one whiff is enough for me to say whether I like it or not.

One such amazing fragrance that I just discovered a few weeks ago is the new-ish fragrance by Dolce & Gabbana named simply "The One". For me it definitely was "The One". It is, in my humble opinion, such a versatile fragrance which I have worn both during the day and at night and I find it absolutely delicious for a special occasion or even just a lunch at a trendy spot in the sun.

It has the most amazing staying power and I have put it on very early in the morning only to take one last whiff of the fantastic scent as I'm about to hit the sack after a late night.

I recently found the perfect gift box at Dischem Pharmacy for an amazing price, better than most retail stores for just the fragrance and it came with two 'free' gifts too. What a bargain! Check out

Dolce & Gabbana 'the one' beautifully packaged from Dischem pharmacies nationwide.

Try it out and let me know what you think, your better half will love you for it. It also makes for the perfect Christmas gift, but you'd better rush as you haven't much time to get your hands on this amazing gift before the holidays or just get it for yourself and its the gift that keeps on giving.

Till next time,

Summer time, and the living is classic luxury

So its Summer and it was seriously time for me to get some new updated shades for the harsh African sun.

I wanted something that suited me but if I was going to spend a pretty penny I wanted something classic, timeless and always fashionable that can be worn with everything.

So, naturally I set my mind on the classic Ray-Ban Aviator style. So this past weekend I happily set off to the mall and found Sunglass Hut housed within Edgars and almost instantly found the pair that I wanted. The sales lady was exceptional, did the necessary amount of flattering and soon I was just about convinced.

I did try a few other varieties of Ray-Ban and even tried some other brands but I just could not get the one's I originally picked out of my mind. It wasn't long and I took these which I think compliment me completely, suite my face and will last a lifetime.

A true classic in every sense of the word.

I absolutely love my new sunnies. Check out or for your own pair of the "Legend".

True Legend Ray-Ban's - "Legends Live for 75 years"

I prefer the lighter lens and these are brown shaded which go perfectly with the gold metal frames. So excited with this amazing purchase.

Thanks to Sunglass Hut SA for the great service and to Ray-Ban for making classic eye wear that protect, make a fashion statement and last forever.
