Design Quarter – Art of Experience

August 20, 2019

Every now and then it’s so nice to find an activity to do that requires nothing but your face, your imagination and perhaps a friend or two.

I was told by a friend of mine that The Design Quarter in Fourways holds an art class, or Art of Experience as they call it on the last Saturday of every month, where you simply show up find a seat and then the lovely folk that run it explain what the day’s activity is.

Dermalogica Prisma Protect

July 25, 2019

Now, this next post may be a little out of the ordinary for me because I don’t often chat about beauty products, but a while ago I met the lovely folk at Dermalogica who introduced me to their world of amazing products and now I’m hooked.

My Dermalogica journey started with the introduction of their Sound Sleep Cocoon Night Cream and their Prisma Protect SPF30 Moisturiser, which as far as I’m concerned is like magic in a tube.
