Walkathon 2016 ad_BuddiesforLife full-page-001

Help Raise Breast Cancer Awareness at 11th Annual Avon Justine iThemba & Spread the Message that Early Detection Saves Lives.

Walk For A Purpose at the largest breast cancer awareness event in the world, the annual Avon Justine iThemba Walkathon taking place on Sunday, 23 October at Marks Park, Emmarentia in Johannesburg. With over 25 500 participants last year, this event has become the largest single day event held purely to generate awareness of breast cancer.

The event will begin with a 7.9km and a 5km walk at 08h00 and 8h30 respectively with an exciting repertoire of live entertainment planned including Kaya FM Deejays and other local artists while there will also be numerous enterprising food stalls and other activities available for participants to enjoy when they finish their walk. Walkers will again have the opportunity to be part of a historic moment through the #PoutForAPurpose world record attempt at this year’s iThemba Walkathon.

In line with the company’s Beauty for A Purpose mission statement, this will be an Avon world record attempt for the most number of people applying lipstick at the same event. For those not based in Johannesburg – put on your pinkest Avon pout, take a photograph and upload it social media using the hashtag #PoutForAPurpose

Breast cancer is the leading type of cancer in women. In South Africa, * It is the most prevalent cancer amongst white and Asian women and the second most common cancer among black and coloured women. Education and awareness is therefore critical since most cases are treatable when diagnosed in time. According to Dr Carol Ann Benn, renowned surgeon and Founder of the Breast Health Foundation, the two biggest stumbling blocks in breast health care in South Africa are awareness and access. She believes that the Avon Justine’s funding of the Breast Health Foundation’s mobile education units, donations and involvement with the Walkathon beautifully addresses both these key issues.

From 8am.

Cost: R120 per adult and R80 for children between two and twelve.

Competition: Recharge with your life with McNab’s and giveaway!

This competition is closed. Congratulations to Bee (@b_balutto)


I must confess I am a coffeeholic I just love the taste and the energy it gives me however with caffeine from energy drinks or coffee comes the mid afternoon crash when the energy leaves your system. Life is busy and we tend to neglect our bodies. Well I have an answer for you and a chance to win yourself a hamper too. McNab’s is basically a brand who’s products recharge and rejuvenate with natural products packed with multivitamins, minerals and nutrients. Mcnab’s is all natural and contains no artificial colorants, flavours or sweetness (sometimes referred to as “nasties” and is made that finest natural African ingredients.
I was given some products from their range to test out and here are my thoughts:
Mcnab’s SuperCharge energy tabs
Probably the most popular product I’ve seen this floating around for quite a while now and if I am not mistaken this was the first product that came from the brand. This is caffeine free and contains Siberian ginseng, gingko biloba, folic acid and omega oils which is great for combatting stress and tiredness giving you all day energy. Basically it is a combination of multivitamins. I don’t believe in vitamins as good nutrition will automatically derive those specific vitamins but the right combination of vitamins which has been researched and packaged together can really make a difference.
• McNab’s SuperCharge hi energy bar
This is my favourite out of the range. It tastes delicious like peanut butter and chocolate! It contains roasted peanuts and whey protein and is dipped in Belgian chocolate. Such a convenient snack and is pretty filling too.
• McNab’s SuperCharge liquid energy
These are 15ml sachet that contain natural plant derived caffeine found in gaurana, green coffee bean extract and green tea. Very affordable at R4,95 and nice and handy to keep in your purse. However I didn’t like the taste it tasted super sweet with a hint of bitterness.
Now for the fun part McNab’s have kindly sponsored(Thanks McNab’s!) a hamper for one lucky reader to enjoy. Competition only open to persons residing in South Africa and closes 25 December 2015. ( so it will really make a nice Christmas present ) Any one of the steps will get you an entry into the draw but just make sure you comment with your respective handles for follow entries or if you already follow just comment below too with the handles.

Scents from Ducati and Ferarri

What man doesn’t like fast cars and speed well instead of buying him that car or motor bike why not stick to a more affordable alternative

Ducati is a dream born in Bologna in 1926 from the business initiative of three brothers. Today this intuition has become the leading European manufacturer and distributor of high performance motorcycles with a sporty character. The distinctive products, the racing pedigree and the iconic image of “cool”, confirm Ducati as the most prestigious brand within the global motorcycle scenario. Competition, technology, style, design. From these rare pearls genuine “jewels of mechanics” are born. Distinctive creations dedicated to real connoisseurs gifted with aesthetic sense and technical competence, who are able to love and appreciate every single detail of a unique and inimitable motorbike.


Ducati_fight for Me Extreme


Fight For Me Extreme, it’s him. It’s all about him. His strength, his charm, his sensuality. With him, she would go anywhere. Right to the end, right to the limit and beyond, leading them ever further into their game of seduction, in a continuing crescendo. The rules have not changed. As the fragrance, they are just intensified. Like a motorcycle thrusting full throttle into the fresh air of the night, the first contact of fresh bergamot and green apple is intense, total. In a continuous build-up of speed, the heart note radiates strength and energy, geranium essence riding on the spicy warmth of cinnamon and cloves in an intoxicating sensation of power. The point of no return. The dry-down unfolds in a warm base of sandalwood and vanilla boosted by a note of amber, leaving in its wake a refined, sensual, definitively masculine echo.

a seducer in essence



“Fight For Me”. A name that rejects all constraints. More than a name, it’s a shout, an attitude, a challenge… If you want me, prove it! Fight for me! But who’s fighting who? She is. Of course. To have him, for her very own… She knows he’ll never truly belong to anyone but himself. If she wants to be with him, she must fight to be like him. Free. A winner. That’s why he wears “Fight For Me”. It’s the fragrance that echoes him, speaks for him, better than anyone. With its striking contrast of sparkling vivacity and sensual male strength, it’s a devastating cocktail with maximum seduction potential. A real magnet. And tough. Like his bike… The start-up is a kick of energy from Calabrian bergamot, a sharp citrus note, crackling, immediate, incisive as the shout of tyres biting the asphalt, mingled with the crisp notes of red apple and the smooth freshness of Violet leaves. Here the fragrance takes to winding lanes, full of the floral, sun-filled charms of Mediterranean lavender and the subtle harmonies of silver-leaved geranium, pointed by a deep amber note with vibrant accents of male sensuality.


well hello. transform my man
well hello. transform my man


In the wakes of Fight for Me and Fight for Me Extreme, DUCATI combines creative freedom and inborn elegance in a new version of its inimitable style. Introducing TRACE ME, another tool of masculine seduction for a man who relies only on himself and his faithful Ducati. Perfectly self-confident, nonchalantly leaning on his iconic Scrambler, they both radiate power and attraction. Is he waiting for anyone? His look leaves no doubts: he’s looking at her. Straight in her eyes. Can she hold his gaze? Will she follow him? Does she dare to? For the moment, he’s here… TRACE ME…definitely my fave out of the range.



Ferrari has launched Red Power Intense, a new fragrance for men. Red Power Intense is a flanker to 2012’s Red Power. Be part of a dream that only the lucky few dare imagine…RED POWER is dedicated to the natural charmer, breathing power, independence and strength. A powerful personality who elegantly conveys the thrilling world of Ferrari. Driven by passion, and now taking it to the next level with RED POWER INTENSE. Notes for the woody amber fragrance include nutmeg, red peppercorns, violet,leaves, lavender, orris, patchouli,frankincense, amber and oud.

So take your pick there is a fragrance for every type of man.

Original cocktails Gluhwein review and competition {closed}


While they’re better known for their range of iced and chilled cocktails, Original Cocktails has brought out something that’s a little bit more appropriate for the chilly weather – gluhwein. Glühwein, which is German for glow wine, is served hot with a slice of lemon or orange. It is made from a full-bodied red wine and flavored with spices including Cinnamon, hints of nutmeg and cloves to create a lovely, mulled, winter drink to be served hot. With wonderful citrus notes, the Glühwein is a classic winter favourite and will add warmth to any occasion. When warmed up, is ready-to-drink.


Absolutely love the aromas and how it is so convenient because it is ready made. Taste the amazing richness of the red wine without that awful bitter taste and it instantly warms me up.


Available in a 750ml bottle (R39.95) and 2 litre box (R76.95) available from liquor outlets. Visit http://www.originaliced.co.za for more information.

Look they have scalves on! OMG isn't this just the cutest!
