The #YouGotThis inspirational campaign

Dawn believes it takes physical and emotional confidence to progress in life. That’s why Dawn launched #YouGotThis, an initiative to empower the young women of Mzansi with confidence, inspiration and mentorship.

On 25 August 2018, Dawn will hosted their annual Women’s Day Event where women had the chance to listen to some of the country’s most inspirational women share their stories and advice on how to get ahead in the modern world.

This year’s experience was even more life-changing, with added practical knowledge from highly relevant speakers – not to mention the chance to connect with like-minded young women! Discussion that were held were about body language, business plans, capsule wardrobe, confidence mantras and goal setting and listening to all the wonderful women’s stories and journeys. Thanks to Dawn and the PR team for hosting such a wonderful event for us women.

 

Review: Roxanne’s rum eatery has just launched a vegan menu

This unique Rum bar is following hot on the heels of the uber-popular gin bar trend. Situated in Pineslopes shopping centre in Fourways is where you will find this gem.
I was invited to try out their new vegan menu.
When I first walked in I fell in love with the interior filled with art and quirky words in neon lights makes it the perfect backdrop for selfies. And it even houses it’s own tattoo bar.

Roxanne’s plans to save the world one Meat-Free Monday at a timeThey call it Flexitarianismthe act of shifting from a meat-heavy diet to adopting a plant-based lifestyle and occasionally having meat as and when the desire arrives. And if anyone knows about desire, it’s Roxanne! They make eating vegan a tasty and easy option.
Roxanne’s believes that, perhaps, vegans were right all along. There is more than enough evidence to prove how reducing meat, dairy, and egg consumption can have a positive impact on your health and the Earth’s. So with that in mind … they are proud to introduce NEW vegan dishes, drinks and a full #RoxMeatFreeMonday menu to our offering.Pioneering Johannesburg’s flexi-eating culture, Roxanne’s Rum Eatery now offers creative, and delicious, vegan menu items for any occasion. You can eat meat-free versions of all your favourite dishes. Pizza, burgers, tacos, salads, sandwiches, desserts. Limitless really. The new menu promises not to disappoint, in fact, it may even surprise those meat-loving individuals!

Long gone are the days when vegan diets were considered weird, ‘hippie’ choices.

Trust me!). And of course a cocktail called “Bettie page”. The entire meal was delicious, presented amazingly and the service was amazing. You can see so much thought gets put into every detail from decor to food. I highly recommend this place.

Review: Dove intensive repair shampoo and conditioner

20180722_0856101287099613.jpg

This new Dove Intense Repair range promises to:
– make hair 10x stronger against damage by strengthening hair fibre from the core
– prevent split ends

The Keratin Repair Actives which is mentioned a lot, is it’s patented breakthrough formula that repairs hair at a deeper level by stabilising the protein deep inside the hair fibre.By performing at cellular level, the core of the hair is repaired and strengthened up to 10 times.

As for Dove Intense Repair Conditioner, it contains new Microsheets Technology that evenly coats hair so you can comb it easily when wet to prevent breakage.

Dove Intensive Repair shampoo:

The shampoo lathers well. The appearance is pearlized which contributes to the shine of your hair. After the first wash you actually feel like you can  get away without the conditioner since the hair feels so soft and smells heavenly.

Dove Intensive Repair conditioner: 

I use a R5 coin size of this focusing on the ends of my hair. After the rinse, my hair feels a soft and smooth and manageable but this is probably from the silicone it contains.

REVIEW: IFROGZ CHARISMA WIRELESS EARBUDS

20180715_165503_mr15328723898451173400913.jpg
My history with earbud has been either uncomfortable, them falling out or cables so long that everything just gets tangled. Ifrogz has identified this issue and has invented headphones designed with women in mind that are fashionable as well as functional. They are compact and lightweight, with simple functionality and good quality sound performance.
The Charisma (R599) affordable Bluetooth earbuds with good design and sound. No what does “with women in mind” mean you may be asking? They have a smaller ear bud design,and are magnetized to snap together when not in use. The color choices range from a lovely rose gold and white, red and black, or grey.
I particularly enjoy the bluetooth “wireless hub” with a magnetic clasp that allows you to clip the headphone to your top. You can also wrap the cord around the remote, which houses the battery, microphone, and all the electronics, and keep everything in place with the clasp which also gives control for the user for calls and music.

Battery life is rated at 10 hours at moderate volume levels and the headphone is sweat resistant but not waterproof.

The sound quality is amazing and there is great base coming from the ear buds. I also detect noise cancelling features.
