Physicians Formula #JHBbloggermeetup

Happy hump day Journeyers!
I know I have been TERRIBLE when it comes to blogging lately, and I do sincerely apologise as it is 100% my own fault. Why you may wonder? Well because I am already in holiday mode. Even though my holiday only starts in 9 days. But who's counting??? hehe

I must be honest with you guys, I have never heard of this product before. Physicians Formula. Interesting name... I was definitely very curious when their products showed up as one of the sponsors for the #JHBbloggermeetup. And when I saw the packaging I became even more curious about the product. The product itself is beautiful, what woman won't fall for a bronzer called Happy Booster that is covered in hearts? And a needle free lip plumping cocktail called Plump Potion.
Let's just say after seeing their contribution that I was hooked.
I just could not get it over my heart to open the goodies. But it had to be done. And with a heavy heart I opened it.....and tried it.....and loved it!

About Physicians Formula:

Pro's: Happy Booster - The name says it all. I get a boost of happiness when just looking at it. Those hearts just make me fall in love with the product all over again. I have no idea how to use a bronzer (I know how bad am I) so I have been using it as a blusher and I love it! It really gives me a glow to my cheeks. Happy cheeks = happy Johlet! 

Pro's: Plump Potion - I love that tingly feeling you get when applying the product. It also has a great little brush that makes the product easy to apply. Although make sure you rub some of the product off on the side as it does pick up a lot of product. The feel of the container feels expensive. Almost like a glass syringe. It made my lips a rosy colour and also lasts for quite a while. Mine gives me the glossy look for at least 3 hours. Fuller, happier lips indeed. 

Con's: Happy Booster - Nothing whatsoever. This product is too pretty to hate.

Con's: Plump Potion - I don't like the smell, I can't put my finger on the smell but I just don't like it. It has a very sticky formulation which I also don't like.

My Happy Booster bronzer used here as a blush.

Senhor Calistos

Hello Journeyers!
21 More days then we are staring Christmas in the face. Insane!
I was asked to review Senhor Calistos, a fast food outlet specialising in mouthwatering flame grilled chicken, seafood, pregos and burgers.
What they say:

We were welcomed by friendly faces and staff that were eager to assist us. With a wide variety of foods to choose from, I struggled a bit with making up my mind on what to order.
We ended up going with 1/4 chickens with pap (yes this is in fact my favorite starch of all time), gravy, spicy rice and a beef shuvarma.

We opted for take-away as we wanted to indulge the meal while in the comfort of our own home....and in front of the TV, seeing that it was a Sunday evening.

The food was really good, and for a fast food outlet, I take my hat off to them. With every bite you would hear Cedric and myself complimenting each bite and exquisite taste with a 'hmmm' or a 'oooh'. Then you must know!
The meals are also reasonably priced.

I would like to say thank you to the team (especially Vusi and John) of Senhor Calistos (on Grayston Drive) for their wonderful service and great food. Keep up the good work guys!

John (Manager) and myself.

Till the next meal!!
Have a blessed day everyone!
