Candi Inbox

#WhatsCatchingmyEye Summer is here, luckily we made it through the treacherous once a year winter. I never know how we do it. Probably with the help of deep red lipsticks, chunky scarfs, red wine and Country Road. I’m taking my Spring/Summer inspiration from the catwalks, Elle Magazine and perfume. Now that we will be ableContinue reading “Candi Inbox”

Candi Loves

I love this time of year, everyone seems to be chirpier, the days become longer and that chill in the air disappears. I loving sharing stories about my brides and makeup.

Anyway

A light heart lives long ~ William Shakespeare In a world of coded fragrance, where often one would not want to be original. Where an industry can be rendered a little boring or safe or driven by trends. An impersonal industry that likes flowers. Imagine discovering a perfume that will imprint on your mind.

A styled shoot with wedding vendors from the wedding industry. My alarm sang its usual song that wills my brain to wake up. Though IContinue reading “My 3am wakeup call”

There are many of us out there that are skeptical whether these ‘miracle’ creams do in fact work. The type of creams that claim to removeContinue reading “Resveratrol aka the Youth Molecule”

Its Black and White

As I stroll through Country Road, Hyde Park all I see is black and white. Don’t get me wrong, I prefer many things to be black and white. Though when it comes to summer fashion, I prefer shades of pink, blue, coral and gold. I also find the fashion drap with a touch of frump.Continue reading “Its Black and White”
