Kiehl’s launch party

I had the pleasure of attending the Kiehl’s Cape Town launch party. The lovely Kiehl’s peeps flew me off to Cape town and covered all my expenses (what darlings 🙂 ). If you follow my blog you will know that I absolutely love Kiehl’s and have tried almost all their products lol I’m sure I could walk into the store and fill in for the consultant and nobody would know the difference.

The launch itself was to celebrate many things first the end of Kiehl’s Life Ride campaign, which aided the Stop Hunger Now organisation. The team gets on Harleys to pack and hand out meals all over the Mother City and surrounding areas, secondly it marked World Kiehls Day and thirdly the opening of the store in Canal Walk.

The festivities were held at Truth House. Celebrating in true new York style (where the brand originated) we were treated to delish cocktails (with cute names to go with the brand), a live band, dancers and yummy American fast food style treats such as corn dogs, french fries, mini burgers and hot dogs. There were assistants and products on display for us to play around with and get to know. The only product I haven’t been able to get my paws on yet because it is not in stores yet was the super multi-corrective cream, so I was pleased to see it there. It was a very casual event and I managed to finally meet and catch up with many people in person like Azhar and Nina (The people responsible for Kiehl’s SA), the beautiful Margaux Knuppe (The co-founder and content director of rubybox) and the fabulous Leigh van den berg (she blogs on and her has been the author of many articles in glossies).

Was most thrilled to meet Leigh as I have been following her blog FOREVER! She is admittedly the only person whose post I can read from start to finish (My justification? I get distracted easily by shiny objects and handheld devices ok) and not to mention the fact that she says most hilarious things. Lol so I literally attacked her while she was spraying on Kiehl’s original musk (which I am totally addicted to now) and the darling offered to spray some on me too. Absolute huge fan of this chic she is the exact same as how she is on her blog and when you chat to her she makes you feel like you have been friends forever. Seriously though if you haven’t visited her blog before I suggest you go now.

Had an absolute blast and really didn’t want the night to end! Congratulation to Kiehl’s a brand which serves the community!

  9. First off I would like to say fantastic blog! I had a
    quick question which I’d like to ask if you do not mind.

    I was curious to know how you center yourself and clear your thoughts prior to
    writing. I have had a hard time clearing my mind
    in getting my thoughts out there. I do take pleasure in writing but it just
    seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are usually wasted simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any recommendations or hints?
    Many thanks!
