flash report : fuchsia

Or maybe we should call it "Hollywood Cerise" considering how many times this colour has popped up on the red carpet and in the streets in 2012. And since pink is my fav colour of all time, you'll definitely see me wearing loads of this in the coming seasons x

our fav little bag

There's no denying it: a woman LOVES a cute little cosmetic bag. And no, she can never have enough of them.

Here at InBloom the Thandana make-up bag was this years #1 selling item (we alone sold close to a 100 in the last few months of this year!!!) These little bags have doubled as "mini clutches" for numerous of our clients, easily fitting your phone, lipgloss, cash and cards! And as if they are not to die for as is (in gorgeous prints in various colours) Thandana just had to go and make them in all leather too... absolutely love it!

old news is still news

I recently heard old news, as new news and decided to try it again...

Years ago, it was a "trend" to drink apple cider vinegar as part of a diet to help aid weight loss. The thought of drinking vinegar just didn't appeal to me then. BUT, when this piece of "advice" came to me again via a BEAUTIFUL French woman with the best, glowing skin I have ever seen, EVER, I thought: I should give it a try!

The verdict?
So far so great!

Here's what you do:  drink 1x tablespoon in the morning and 1x tablespoon at night before going to bed AND dilute the vinegar 1 part to 5 parts water (I use cooled boiled water) to use as a toner between cleansing and moisturizing your skin. The great thing about this is that it is cheap and you can do it for as long as you feel that you can do it. And I don't know about you, but gorgeously-glowing skin will pretty much appeal to me for forever...
