    Review: Dial a Stylist

    Recently one of my readers contacted me to let me know she’d started a new business. Her company, Dial A Stylist, is a very affordable way of getting dolled up before a night out. Starting at R45 per treatment, Kim will come to your home to do your hair before you go out. Her range of services include blow drying, hair straightening, curling and upstyles, amongst others. Her super relaxed personality makes it feel as if you’re chatting with a friend before heading out – not to mention how convenient it is to have her come to you in your own home! I had a special dinner last week, and…

    4 Plus Size Transitional Pieces for Any Season

    Regardless of where you live, chances are the weather can be a bit fickle at times, especially when the seasons are transitioning from one to the next. Unpredictable temperatures can make choosing an outfit tricky, to say the least. After all, what’s a girl to do when it’s cool in the morning but sweltering by noon? The key to this age-old dilemma is to create an ensemble that revolves around layers, allowing you to easily lose or add items, depending on the weather.

    5 reasons I’m excited for Dusty Rebels and the Bombshells – and a ticket giveaway!

Now in its third year, the Dusty Rebels entertainment lineup is looking more fabulous than ever before, I’m so excited to attend this weekend. Take a look at what I’m most looking forward to below,…

    A spooktacular Halloween pinup shoot

    Those who know me, know one thing for certain – I’m utterly mad for Halloween! Creepies, ghoulies, hobgoblins and bats – these are a few of my favourite things. Everyday is Halloween in my home, from my zombie and monster decor – and my absolute speciality is cooking creepy-looking food! (Brain jello anyone?) So, when I got asked to partake in a South African pinup calendar, I jumped at the chance to be Miss October because it meant one thing – Halloween pinup shoot! After my incredible experience doing my boudoir photo shoot with Miss Hepburn Photography and Sam Ellenberger MUA, I was super keen to collaborate with them again…

    My Rockabilly Birthday Bash

    A couple weeks ago I celebrated my 30th birthday, and in true Meg fashion threw a big themed party. While I’m the furtherest thing from a ‘party-party’ girl (you’d be hard-pressed to find me up past midnight and I drink less alcohol than a mormon), I do have a soft spot for themed bashes.

Not because they weren’t a complete blast, but gosh they’re a lot of work. This one was no different. The goals for my parties are usually: dressing up (like I need an excuse) to get…
