Indulge in a @CHANEL limited edition Christmas Makeover #THEONETHATIWANT

Nothing quite compares to the luxury brand CHANEL. I have recently joined the CHANEL team as a professional makeup artist and CHANEL consultant and have exciting news to share with my readers.


I am inviting three of my readers to come and enjoy a luxury limited edition CHANEL Christmas ’14 makeover where you will be able to indulge in a one hour CHANEL journey that will transport you from your everyday makeup look to the coveted CHRISTMAS 2014, Collection Plumes Précieuses De Chanel look. CHANEL pride themselves in giving their customers a sense of value by making you feel beautiful and with the Chanel Christmas collection, you will certainly walk away feeling exquisite.


Experience flawless skin with a hint of shimmering peach.  This year the CHANEL Makeup Creation Studio takes inspiration from the graceful and luminous feather with the wispy softness coming through in the subtle shades on the eyes, and embellished with golds and silver. The precious jewel and coveted beauty accessory for the season is the CAMÉLIA DE PLUMES EXCLUSIVE CREATION.  An embossed feather motif in the shape of the renowned CHANEL camellia flower makes this iridescent illuminating powder a must have for your CHANEL collection. This can be applied to your brow bones, cheek bones and décolleté area.


The limited edition LES 5 OMBRES DE CHANEL “OISEAUX DE NUIT” includes 5 timeless shades in both warm and cool tones. Shades of silvery white, grey lavender, intense grey, jet black and antique gold with matte and iridescent finishes make this palette elegantly versatile. The jet black is especially matte  and can be applied as an intense black shade or as an eyeliner along the lashes. Magnify your eyes by applying the antique gold shade to the inner corner of your eye and the middle of the eyelid. Contour the eyes using the intense grey and grey lavender shades.  Illuminate the eyes by applying silvery white shades under the brow bone.


What is Christmas without a splash of red to finish off the look? Add a pop of fiery red, ROUGE ALLURE VELVET lipstick (#337 La Flamboyante) and LE VERNIS nails (#687 Phenix) to complete the look.

#7FAMSSA @SurteeGroupZA bring Luxury “Sevens” Denim Collection to SA



Sevens Jeans Logo

We are fortunate enough to live in the times where jeans are more than just a sturdy factory worker uniform but have evolved to become a status symbol for both casual style and luxurious elegance. With the first flagship store unveiling of the “7 For All Mankind” brand, luxury chic fitted denim pieces have hit our African shores in style.

Fun Fact number one: Initially Jeans were worn by factory workers and men had the zipper down the front whilst women had the zipper down the left side. By the sixties, the zipper for both men and women were down the front.

Sevens Launch

The Sandton City flagship store resonates with clean and simple classic lines. In fact, the store is so elegantly put together, one can’t help themselves but feel a sense of pride and a foundation for individual expression when glancing at the premium display of denim. This brand is famously known and referred to by fashionista’s and stylists abroad as “Sevens” and hails all the way from the United States where 7 For All Mankind made its mark as a leading lifestyle brand, and a brand loved by stars such as Cameron Diaz , Miranda Kerr & Angelina Jolie.

Fun Fact number two: It was the steamy James Dean who popularized wearing jeans and in the 1950’s, jeans became a symbol for youth rebellion. In fact some theaters, restaurants and schools even banned jeans.

For me, I personally loved the way the jeans fit, so much so I had to restrain myself from jumping my husband’s awesomely “well chiseled” bootie in the “Chad” style jeans. Hello hotness!

Sevens Jeans

Although we were given a generous 20% discount voucher in our goody bags, the price tag on these babies are not for the faint hearted. A little out my budget but definitely one for the notorious wish list.

Sevens Jeans Library

I have to say my favorite store display is the library of jeans, where the full denim collection lie almost exactly 1 inch apart from each other for your viewing pleasure. The only book reading we did in this library was page through the perfectly poised look books.

I even got a chance to briefly chat with two masterminds who are behind the brilliant idea of bringing this prestigious brand to our shores. The team believe that a differentiating factor for these jeans is that your “Sevens” pair of jeans will not fade or lose shape for at least its first 40 washes. The store also offer a tailoring service for those of us who need one and to top this all off the brand is synonymous with great quality and fit, suited for the best of the best. Gone are the days where only our work attire are tailored to mold our physique perfectly.


The food and deco were of equal elegance during the evening and definitely fitting for the unveiling of such a store down to the impressive detail of monogrammed branded material serviettes.


If you have chance, do yourself a favor and slip into a pair of these beauties when you are next in Sandton, you may never want to wear anything else.
