Summer with Kangol za

This month’s press drop from Kangol had me shrieking with joy, mixed with a whole lot of other emotions. It’s full of colours, reminiscent of Summer, some new faces and some we’re already familiar with. I’m a makeup novice but absolutely love makeup brushes as I feel they make life so much and makeup application a total breeze. Kangol came through with a full set of brushes, I mean from foundation to fan brush to get the perfect glow with your highlight. The press drop consists of the brush set, beauty sponges, Pink Sapphire fragrance, the new double-lish liners, two lip glosses, a lipstick, mascara and the free gift with purchase; rose gold stick on nails.

Let’s look at each item individually:

12 piece brush set RSP: R189

d

This is such a handy set as it contains every brush you’d possible need to create killer looks. From your foundation to powder to eyebrow brush, it’s included and really great quality. It’s black with silver with a cute little heart and “k” at the steel, very elegant. It comes standard in its own case so you won’t have to worry about storage. I’ve used most of the brushes already and have to admit the foundation and fan brush are my favourites. The bristles are very soft and though there are a few stray one that look like they’re about to come out, they haven’t.

 

Double-lish liners RSP: R69

vyf
Showtime, Summerdaze, Island bling, Killawatt and Goldstar

I really like these products as I’m all about dual purposes for certain items as it save time and money. It’s available in five shades/colours and  are perfect for a daring lip ,for using with eye shadow or on its own.  I’ve used Showtime with Wine Pout (a matte lippie from a previous press drop) and they looked really good together. Also, Goldstar with Saffron Sunset is a good combination.  Quick tip: Don’t press to hard when applying these liners, I did and it broke but I think I’d be able to fix it by melting it together.

 

Holly Berry and Saffron Sunset RSP: R79

This is my second Saffron Sunset and you can read my review and see pictures here. Holly Berry is very close to Rio Red, which remains one of my favourite lippies from Kangol. It’s berry so not too red, provide good coverage and non-sticky. It’s perfect for days when you want a pop of colour but don’t want to wear lipstick.

 

Retro Mascara

tien

I’ve never used any Kangol mascaras before so I was really excited to try this one. My lashes are already long and full but I love how this mascara separated and lifted it. Application is easy and it doesn’t smudge, which is good as I always tend to rub my eyes a lot. My eyes are every sensitive but I had no irritation whilst wearing this mascara and I’ve worn it quite a few times.

 

Pink Sapphire perfume RSP: R159

sewe

I love Kangol fragrances as they’re soft but wearable and Pink Sapphire is no exception. Upon application it’s quite sweet, which is perfect for summer days but settles down into a stunning scent that you can’t help but fall in love with. I haven’t had any migraines while wearing it which is always a good sign for me.

 

Beauty blending sponges

b

Every makeup artist and their aunty have been using these blending sponges for a really long time now and I was really curious to see what the fuss was about. I received two sponges and tried the egg shaped one to apply my foundation and contour. It applied like a dream, no steaks or unevenness. It’s recommended that you wet the sponge before you start your makeup application as it makes it easier. I did my contour (with the #throwingshade palette) and foundation application with sponge and it did a great job. You can clean your sponge with  a makeup brush cleanser or shampoo. There are actually a lot of DIY cleanser recipes via Google as your sponge does absorb a lot of product, as pictured here.

Lipstick in Platinum RSP: R85

E

This is a beautiful nude mocha shade that’s very moisturising. It has a bit of pink/gold specks in it which means that it would look great on all skin tones. It’s perfect for every day wear on its own or you can use it to balance out a heavy eye look.

 

The free gift this month if you spend R350 or more are stunning false nails in various colours, I got rose gold. As someone who always had long natural nails I never tried press on nails but the instructions seem easy enough. You just add the nail that’s best suited for your natural nails, add a bit of glue to the base and press it down until the glue is set.

My Daughtry experience

If there’s one artist that you could watch live over and over without getting tired, who would it be?

 

For me the answer is quite simple: Chris Daughtry!

DAUGHTRY_BOOKLET_spread2_real_R2-96880446-750x458

I’ve been so ecstatic when I found out he’ll be in SA as it was the one artist I really wanted to see live. The show took place in Pretoria, which is far for me but I didn’t care. I tried to reign in my excitement as we made our way there but it was difficult. Upon arrival, the excitement were palpable in the air as old and young made their way into the Sun Arena. I went with my friend Simi, also an avid Daughtry fan as I feel you will enjoy it with like-minded people.

Jesse Clegg was the opening act and did a stellar job. I’m not very familiar with his music but he has an amazing voice and I’ll definitely check out more of his work after this weekend. The one song that stood out for me is “Use Me“, which is from his 2016 album “Things Unseen”. We waited about 30 minutes for them to get on stage and were entertained with amongst others, Michael Jackson songs in the meantime. When they finally appeared on stage, the noise was deafening. To whomever were seated in front of me, I sincerely apologise if you have a bit of trouble with your hearing right now.

Chris opened his show with “Just found heaven” from his 2018 album “Cage to Rattle”. A common mistake most people make is thinking this song is entitled “Hallelujah” as the word is mentioned several times in the lyrics. I have to admit he sounds absolutely amazing live, better than most artists I’ve seen. In total, he did 18 songs, an intro of “Losing my Mind” after it was requested from the audience and of course, the grand finale with “Purple Rain” by the late Prince.

Simi absolutely loves “Home” as do I and “Superman” and we were stoked that he did both. I’ve never heard “As you are” but fell in love with it and it’s been added to my playlist. Other old favourites from his self-entitled 2006 album that he performed included “It’s not over”, “Over You” and “Feels Like Tonight“. I recently fell in love with “White Flag” and “Deep End” from their latest album and I couldn’t contain my excitement when he did both. Other favourites included “No Surprise“, “Battleships”,Life after you” and of course “September“. It was an absolutely amazing show and the band, OMG! he has the perfect band to complement his sound.

Chris Daughtry, to me, is the epitome of “don’t give up even if they tell you you’re not good enough.” He auditioned for American Idol about 10 years ago and at the time he already performed with his own rock band but had a full-time job as a Service Advisor. All he wanted was to provide for his family and follow his passion and he sounded really good. Simon wasn’t very impressed with him, told him he portrayed no emotion, lack charisma and gave him a “no” but he fortunately Randy and Paula believed enough to put him through.  He came in fourth, got offered a record deal, formed a band and their first album became the fastest selling debut rock album in Nielsen SoundScan history, selling more than one million copies after just five weeks of release.

I have to say, this event was well organised and we didn’t get stuck in traffic leaving the venue as the attendants made sure it was flowing (the traffic that is). We were up in a hospitality suite so we didn’t have the usual struggle to get out of the venue once the show ended. A big “thank you” to Dionne and her team and of course Big Concerts and partners for making this possible.

Music Is King!

Following the announcement of the inaugural Music Is King Concert last month, concert organisers Soulistic Music and U-Live Africa today announced the first wave of performers which includes headliners Nasty C, Lady Zamar, Burna Boy and Riky Rick.

Nigerian born Dancehall / Reggae artist Burna Boy first made it to the SA charts with local collaboration hit ‘All Eyes on Me’ with rapper AKA. This award winning superstar has definitely set the bar high with his unique Afrofusion sound and having worked with huge names in the industry at the tender age of 21, he is here to stay. Currently on tour in the UK, Burna Boy is excited to bring a special set to the Music Is King stage.

 

IMG_20181026_101119

Speaking on his line up selection, Black Coffee had this to say: “Having dreamt of Music Is King for so long, it’s great to see it finally come alive. I have had an intense yet amazing year supported largely by my fans here at home. And what better way to celebrate than right here in Joburg over the festive period with my people. Right now my team and I are working on an insane production with an even crazier line-up featuring some of my industry friends. It’s gonna be one wild Musical night to end off the year”.

What South Africans miss about home while abroad

If you had to leave South Africa, what is the one thing that you’ll miss most?

Personally, I’d miss the weather, the familiar languages (even though I don’t understand half of what’s being said), as cliché as it may sound, I will miss biltong and the familiarity of everything as well as the spirit of Ubuntu.

Would any of this prevent me from leaving South Africa? No, no it won’t but my mom would. If the opportunity arises for me to spread my wings and move on to better opportunities, I’ll take it. If it’s off on some exotic island, even better. I’ll be homesick a lot but if it’s worth it, I’ll do it.

Travelstart conducted a survey across social media to find out what South Africans miss most about home while abroad and it revealed some expected answers but also a few unexpected ones.

South Africans love their biltong and Rooibos tea

BEEF-BILTONG-500g-e1471957916456-768x513
http://www.meatonline.co.za

Unsurprisingly, over 50% of the respondents said they missed biltong, droëwors, and braais. Durban curry and boerewors rolls came in close behind at 20% and many people also said they missed how affordable dining out is in South Africa compared to other countries.

When it came to drinks, desserts, and unique South African products, 25% said they miss Rooibos Tea, 20% said SAB beers such as Castle Lite and Black Label, and 15% miss a good bottle of Pinotage. Peppermint Crisp tart was the favourite dessert with 24% and malva pudding and milk tart each got 20%. The beloved Mrs Balls Chutney was missed by 24% of respondents and Ouma Rusks by 17%.

Cape Town wins the hearts of locals

Places such as Cullinan, Sabie, Kruger National Park, and the Wild Coast made it onto the list, but Cape Town proved to be the undeniable winner with over 50% saying it was the place they missed the most.

South Africans love road trips, Christmas outside, and each other
Almost 50% of respondents said being able to get into their cars and drive along the coast on a Sunday afternoon or go on a long road trip to the small towns is something they miss most. Many also said that stopping at Wimpy or the padstals along the way are a highlight of road tripping anywhere in South Africa.

An overwhelming majority also said that being able to celebrate Christmas outside in the warm sunshine and the friendly people are two of the best things about the country. Many respondents also expressed a love for the great weather and diverse landscapes and cultures.
Roadside shopping and being able to say things like “Ag man!”

Zapiro

Surprisingly, a few respondents said the sound of hooting taxis was something they missed while abroad. A large majority also said they missed the petrol attendants, being able to buy everything from avocados and newspapers to sunglasses and car chargers at the robots, and the South African accent and slang.
Turns out you can take people out of South Africa, but you can’t take South Africa out of its people.

What would you miss if you ever have to leave South Africa?

My DStv Delicious Festival experience

The very first DStv Delicious Festival took place in October 2013 and was headlined by Jamiroquai. Ever since then it became THE Spring outdoor festival in Johannesburg for food and music lovers alike. It was held in Cape Town in December 2014 but returned to Johannesburg the following year due to popular demand. This festival has brought as acts like Common, TKZee, Chaka Khan, Jamiroquai, Hugh Masekela, De La Soul, Lira, Macy Gray, Thandiswa Mazwai & Bongo Maffin, and Black Coffee, amongst others.

IMG_20180922_134729_986

I’ve never personally attended the festival before even though I think the 2017 line-up was really amazing as it featured Common, Black Coffee, Hugh Masekela and Thandiswa Mazwaiamongst others. It coincided with another event that I’ve already RSVP’d for in advance so I decided to honour my previous commitments and was left with serious fomo.  This year, I made it my mission to obtain tickets as I wanted to experience it for myself and not rely on other people’s versions. I was quite happy when I was able to secure tickets and have been bragging about it for weeks, so much so that many of my friends decided to attend as well. The main attraction this year was the fact that Erykah Badu was headlining the event and that stirred up a lot of anticipation from a lot of people except me…and a few others I’m aware of. To be quite honest with you, I know who Erykah is but (gasp) I don’t know any of her music! I kid you not! Maybe I do and don’t realise it’s hers? That may be a big possibility but that didn’t stop me from securing a weekend pass. My logic was that if I enjoy the Saturday, I’d go back on Sunday and enjoy the hype around the line-up.

We arrived at around 15h00 as we planned on staying until 22h00. Turns out, parking is a whopping R100! Bear in mind, general access tickets are R650 excluding food and drinks so that was a bit of a shocker to me. It made sense why a lot of people made use of the Gautrain options provided by the festival as it worked out cheaper especially with the increasing price of fuel. As we walked in, people were already leaving bit I figured those were the ones that arrived early as the event started at 11h00. We were interviewed by BET and headed over to the M-Net tent where we took pictures with SK Khoza from The Queen and did “wedding pictures” with The Wedding Bashers (I later went back for a photo-op with the amazing Craig Lucas). There was also a game show in progress but since it was focussed on movie trivia about movies showcased on M-Net I didn’t even think of participating (haven’t watched TV in over 2 months).  We walked past attractions like the Aero Lounge where chocolate tastings were taking place and several food stalls as well as a Johnnie Walker VIP area on our way to the main stage. Mshoza was on stage performing “Kortes” as we arrived and it was her final song so we missed her entire performance.

IMG-20180924-WA0003

What I couldn’t fault the festival on was that there were ample places to get food at. Windhoek lager had 2 spots where you could purchase alcohol, water and soft drinks and Johnnie Walker had a VIP tent with designer cocktails that were a big attraction and led to people literally queuing to try it out. The fact that there were such a variety should’ve cut the queuing time in half though, which didn’t quite happen as there weren’t enough places selling alcoholic beverages. Food waiting time on the other hand weren’t long but that could also be because we went to the places that were quite far away from both stages.  Speaking of which, the main attraction on Saturday was definitely not the main stage. It featured artists like Jordan Rakei, D’ Influence and Jazzanova that a lot of people  weren’t familiar with whereas the Vodacom Dance Arena had DJ’s like Christos, Vinny Da Vinci, Greg Maloka, DJ Fresh and Louie Vega so most people were hanging out there. It was packed and we had to fight our way through as my friends definitely weren’t planning on missing DJ Fresh and Louie Vega.

IMG-20180922-WA0003

The ablution i.e. bathroom facilities consisted of porta potties with taps to wash your hands at. Shortly before we left, around 8, it ran out of water though so people weren’t able to wash their hands. I always have hand sanitizer so I was okay but felt sorry for others. With weed being legalized there were plenty of people smoking it at the event. I thought it was for private use i.e. at home but people paid no mind to that. We weren’t searched as we entered so I guess you could smuggle in whatever you needed. I love observing fashion at events and this one didn’t disappoint. Big ups to the ladies that were rocking their heels, my feet were killing me and I was wearing Chucks. There were a lot of ladies sporting the same looks, inevitably depending on where you bought your festival get up and it turned into a game of “spot the tutu” for me and my friends as they both were rocking tutus as well.

I quite enjoyed Jordan Rakei and Louie Vega and it was awesome meeting Craig but I was quite underwhelmed. I wasn’t 100% prepared for the setup as some people were that rocked up with camping chairs to sit in and observe the show on the main screen. I also wasn’t prepared for the cost of things, I mean 440ml soft drinks went for R25. My single G&T was something like R50+ and the food we settled on was R75 each. It’s a costly affair if you consider the ticket cost and parking and the fact that everything was cashless due to the partnership with Visa. Cashless is actually much safer as someone won’t be able to use your card without your PIN but could use your cash when you lose it.  A lot of people are still old school though and prefer cash, like me so we used my friend’s card and just handed him the cash, which wasn’t very safe.

IMG-20180923-WA0025

I enjoyed the Vogue photo-op station as well as the Windhoek team that provided us with Instax pictures to remember the event by. For smoker, there were promoters walking around, selling the goods for when the need arises. We left at 20h00, 2 hours before our agreed-upon time because everyone was okay with leaving. As we were leaving I was informed that I needed to hold on to my wristband to return the following day as they won’t be issuing them again. Bear in mind, its paper wristbands and I had I still had to bathe when I get home and shower the following day. I was able to remove it with minimal damage but I was so tired from walking in the sun that I didn’t feel like returning on the Sunday…and I didn’t.  People loved Erykah’s performance though, according to social media, as well as the fact that she announced her pregnancy during said performance.

IMG-20180923-WA0006

What would I do different? Well, my experience is from a general access perspective but with what VIP ticket holders had on offer I’m sure they enjoyed the event a lot more. I would definitely take a camping chair to chill in though the only con is that you’d have to walk around with it until you go home as there’s no pass outs. I’d definitely save up throughout the year to enjoy the festival as it should be enjoyed. The music weren’t really my scene but I attend festivals and events overall for the ambience, the vibe and the tribe I go with.  Social media had mixed responses from people who attended with some loving it, others not so much. I feel like if you’re with the right people you’ll have fun wherever you are, regardless of the circumstances and this event was prove of that.

Dr Esther Mahlangu’s master class with NSA, Tastic and Albany

It’s not every day that you get the opportunity to hang out with a living legend so when I received an invitation to this amazing event, I immediately send through my RSVP. The event was of course the master class presented by Dr Esther Mahlangu at the National School of the Arts, in collaboration with Albany and Tastic Rice, two of SA’s most iconic brands. It was an initiative to commemorate the diverse and dynamic cultures that when combined make up the beautiful traditions that form part of South African heritage. It was a perfect marriage as you can see by the recent designs on both these products.

 

The morning started off with performance from students at NSA, which gave me goosebumps including a cello and piano as well as an opera performance. In his speech, Matshela Seshibe, Managing Director Albany Bakeries, thanked and recognised Dr Mahlangu as, “an export brand of global significance and renowned artist, near and dear to the hearts and minds of South Africans in both the art community as well as broader circles, communicating with brush strokes that indeed tell a story.” He went to say that, “our collaboration is probably best articulated by cultural historian Johan Huizinga when he said “If we are to preserve culture we must continue to create it”.

I absolutely loved the praise poem that was performed and written by Nqobile Mahlangu, a grade 11 drama student at the school, have a look:

 

After lunch were served, we proceeded to the room where Dr Mahlangu were to conduct the master class. To see her reception, which I absolutely loved, check out my live video here. Students were in awe to be painting with this legend, it was really a sight to behold. They were all seated in a circle in such a way that they could see Dr Mahlangu and all of them had a blank canvas and various paint colours in front of them. They were instructed to ditch the paint brushes and instead were handed feathers to paint with. Dr Mahlangu gave instructions, via her interpreter, as to what they have to do. They started off with a black line and we advised that any mistakes can be fixed by simply going over it with white paint.

Unfortunately we couldn’t stick around to see the final product and I’ve been stalking the Instagram pages of all brands involved but no luck yet. Check out this snippet from the day via News 24 to see what went down.

Albany are running a competition where you can win R5000 daily and other instant prizes by buying two (limited edition) loaves of bread and sending the unique codes to  *120*12211#.
