What I…

♥ Pain does not stay forever and that bad times will pass.
♥ The same with the good times and that is why we need to cherish every moment unconditionally.
♥ Perseverance is the ultimate secret to success, and you REALLY do have to work and commit, may it be with your job, studies, blog or relationships.
♥ The Aztec’s used Beetles to make Red Lipstick.
♥ You can never wear enough highlighter.

What I Pic 1

♥ Without a doubt, as cliché as this might be, my Family and My Partner.
♥ Cheesecake…how can you not love it? It is believed that cheesecakes were served to athletes competing during the first Olympic Games in 776 B.C. to give them energy. So NO it does not make you fat, it gives you Energy.
♥ KNOWLEDGE – There are so many things to learn each and every day. I just love to absorb every piece of information, it is indeed priceless.


♥ Literature, from old local poets such as Antjie Krog, Ingrid Jonker and Breyten Breytenbach, to the classics such as Shakespeare, Robert Frost and Maya Angelou.
♥ An extreme load of Law books, I study law so it is fit that anything law related I will read.

What i 4

♥ Right now I am lusting for a plate of Sushi…and Cheesecake.
♥ To have true self-esteem and confidence as it is something which I generally lack at.
♥ To just generally have my life under control.
♥ For winged eyeliner to be easy and not to be terrified of red lipstick.
♥ To achieve my goals event with all the bumps and bridges it may bring.
♥ To never regret anything in my life and live it to the fullest.
♥ …a Chanel bag would also be nice.

What I pic 2

♥ I believe simplicity is key to achieve an elegant classy look.
♥ I tend to pair black pants or jeans with a black or white shirt and some heels.
♥ I wear heels at least 5 times a week; it’s amazing what they do for posture and a nice booty.
♥ I spice things up generally with my shoes and sometimes when I am extreme I will wear leopard print.

What I Pic 3

♥ I am quite needy when it comes to acknowledgement.
♥ I need Knowledge, Information and constant learning, I fuels and stimulates me.
♥ I seriously need to attend a class in makeup; I think it would be extremely beneficial for the blog.
♥ My Family, Cheesecake and more makeup; smmf…one can never have enough.

Kathryn Rossiter

Kathryn is a South African lifestyle blogger and mom of 2 who has been blogging daily for over 9 years! She writes about travel, health, beauty, fashion, decor and family... but not food (unless it's food she's eaten made by someone else) as she is a hopeless cook. She only wakes up early for 2 things... a red-eye flight to somewhere exotic and early morning game drives. She has just finished an extensive home renovation and would prefer to never see another box again. She's never met a chocolate or glass of bubbles that she didn't like!

  1. Oh now I want cheesecake as well! And sushi! he he

    Love this…. Always worried that I’m overdoing it with the highlighter (though I have a very light hand with it), but now I know….USE ALL THE HIGHLIGHTER!! lol

  2. Divine!! Nice to know what is going on in the beauty blogging world as I am a lifestyle and wellness blogger from JHB. Will be sure to join both your newsletters. XO
