My Summer Must-haves

As someone that constantly reads labels and still struggles with finding and using the right products it is not always easy to get the ones that work. When summer hits and the weather gets to 33 °C (91 ° F), I have my go-tos as I minimise use of foundation or anything heavy that clogs…

The Lilayi Green Market

Zambia has recently gotten on the plastic bag ban wagon, in most shops but as we are just starting out it is not completely implemented everywhere and not everyone is used to it yet purely out of habit. The Lilayi Green Market is changing that dynamic, it turned 1 this month so popped over to…

Itezhi Tezhi Sunsets

My body now feels softer using sulphate free products in combination with an emollient cream. What are Sulphates? Sodium Lauryl Sulphate (SLS) and Sodium Laureth Ether Sulphate…
