“Tried. Tested. Trusted”
Note: As of July 2017, there was a price increase from R29.90 to R34.00 due to production, but there are still over 100 pages of mixed content to appease most readers.
The July issue cover star is Connie Britton and she looks great from her strawberry locks to the light background – the magazine pops with the bold and colour splash headings.
BRAVO TO THE TEAM!
Here are my fav pages from this month’s edition
PAGE: 12 – CHECK MATES
COMMENTS: THE TWO RED SHIRT DRESSES WILL COMPLIMENT ANY LOOK (DATE NIGHT OR LADIES LUNCH)
BOTH CAN ARE AVAILABLE AT YOUR LOCAL MR PRICE STORE
THE PEARL-BEADED BAG IS A BIT TOO EXPENSIVE BUT WILL LOOK GREAT AS A CLUTCH OR SLING BAG, THE PRICETAG IS A HEFTY R400!! NO, I CAN SPEND THAT CASH ELSE WHERE BUT HEY IM NOT A HUGE FASHION LOVER SO WHO AM I TO JUDGE?
OH, THIS IS AVAILABLE AT H & M STORES
PAGE: PAGE 32 – GARDEN GUIDE
COMMENTS: ALTHOUGH JULY IS ALMOST UP (I CHOSE MONTH END AS TO NOT SPOIL IT FOR THOSE STILL WANTING TO BUY THE LATEST EDITION – BUT YOU CAN REQUEST A BACK ISSUE.
A FAB BOOK TITLED “BUILD A BETTER VEGETABLE GARDEN” BY JOYCE AND BEN RUSSELL IS A GREAT GIFT TO YOURSELF FROM YOURSELF.

COMMENTS: VICKI SLEET (LIFESTYLE EDITIOR FOR GH SOUTH AFRICA) SHARES HER FAB TIP FOR REMOVING HAIR-DYE FROM WHITE TOWELS
“YOU’LL NEED HYDROGEN PEROXIDE AND A DROPPER. Drop two – three drops onto stained area, allow to dry and then launder as usual”
PAGE: 57 AND UP (HAIR GUIDE WITH OVER 100 TIPS)
COMMENTS: I TRIED THE REVERSE WASHING (READ MORE ON PAGE 65) FOR A WEEKEND (IT IS SUPPOSE TO ADD VOLUME TO HAIR) AND IT DID NOT LOOK OR EVEN FEEL DIFFERENT. BUT MAYBE WITH PROPER SHAMPOO AND NOT A 2-IN-1, IT WILL HAVE A BETTER OUTCOME.
DIRECTIONS FOR USE: APPLY YOUR CONDITIONER FIRST AND LATHER FOR 3 MINUTES THEN APPLE SHAMPOO AND ALLOW TO SIT FOR AN EXTRA 2 MINS – RINSE THOROUGHLY.
