Red carpet ready: Thandie Newton

Spotted: Sultry actress Thandie Newton dropped by in Toronto during the Toronto International Film Festival, looking striking in the pixilated graphic mini-dress. Thandie, which means ‘beloved’ in Zulu, has a Zimbabwean mother and English father, and grew up in the UK. For me, she defines global beauty, with her luminous skin and stunning features. This shot captures her graceful elegance impeccably.

Hand therapy: Biotherm Biomains

Moving is hard work; that’s where I’ve been these past few weeks. All that pointing of where the boxes should go has taken a toll on my hands :). The fix: Biotherm Biomains hand treatment. This silky lotion spreads smoothly, leaving soft, moist (read: not greasy) hands, and is also touted as an age delaying and nail strengthening formula. Super rich ingredients include glycerin, D-panthenol and UV filters, creating a protective barrier for sun spots, while nourishing skin texture and up-ing the suppleness factor. The light scent is not overpowering or lingering. At least my hands look good – far from what my new house looks like right now ♥.
