Essence Blossom Dreams Highlighter and Blush Brush Review

The brush is soft to the touch and densely packed. The hairs are ombre, with neon pink edges. The handle is silver metal, decorated with black flowers. I try not to be distracted by packaging when it comes to cosmetics but I have to admit that the contrast colours and textures makes this brush really pretty and eye-catching.

{City Diaries} Getting Lost in Cape Town

You Can’t Get Lost in Cape Town. The title of Zoe Wicomb’s novel confused me in my first year of studying in Cape Town. How could one not get lost in the Mother City where highways fly over more highways, cul de sacs lurk around so many neighbourhoods and the roads are so steep you feel like you’re always hiking up the mountain, furthering yourself from civilisation?
