About Me

I'm a 25 year old student in Stellenbosch, South Africa. Currently, I'm expanding my academic career by doing my PhD in Chemistry (mostly in Supramolecular Materials Chemistry) at Stellenbosch University. I was born in Cape Town, and have lived in the Cape all my life. (It's a little corner of paradise!) In addition to science, I also love pretty things, such as makeup, nail polish and fashion.

All opinions are my own, honest thoughts. All products that I use have been purchased by myself or gifted by friends/family. Any products or posts that have been sponsored will be clearly marked - but will still have my own opinions attached. All prices listed, unless otherwise specified, are in South African Rand. As of August 2013, products that have been sponsored or gifted will be marked with an asterisk (*). Sponsored posts will always be disclosed as such. Some of the links on this blog may be affiliate links. This means that I may earn a small percentage of the product cost should you buy the product after clicking the link. This comes at no cost to you. The presence of affiliate links or sponsored products comes at no compromise to my opinion on a product.

Most of the photographs on this blog are my own. If I use a photograph from another source, I will always credit with a source link. Blog-related artwork was designed using PicMonkey and/or Photoshop Elements.

You're welcome to share content from my blog through Pinterest or other social networking channels. I only ask that you please include a link back to my blog and always credit my own work.

Thank you.
