SILTS Volume 3

I have a jam packed post for this volume of SILTS (stuff I'd like to share). If you missed the Volume 2, click here to catch up with the news I shared there.

Starting off with a BANG, Sorbet, the powerhouse beauty salon franchise, announced on their social media sites such as Twitter and Facebook, that they will be launching their own nail polish range just in time for our pretty pointers to enjoy this Summer. They are running a #namethatpolish competition until tomorrow, where you can name the polish below. If your name gets chosen then you will win the whole summer collections and some for your friends too. Please submit your name ideas on their Facebook page.

 I am really impressed at the Sorbet chain, especially how they have grown into their own, very well known, brand. It wasn't too long ago that they teamed up with Clicks for their very own skin care range and earlier this year they started producing other beauty tools such as tweezers and nail files (which are fab by the way!) which wear the Sorbet name. 

In extra "Sorbet-ey" news, Ian Fuhr, the founder and original fire-starter of South Africa's leading Beauty Salon Group, is launching a book called "get that feeling" which explains his success and he includes an entrepreneurial journey that is fearless, fast and brutally honest. His book will be out sometime this month. (Source)

In yummy "I could bake all day long" news, Boardmans has teamed up with The Cake Boss and have launched a whole range of Cake Boss baking products. Buddy was in SA for the Gauteng Food and Wine show where he showed off his new baking equipment and did a demo for Expo visitors. The exciting new baking toys include everything needed to mix, scrape, scoop and whisk to perfection as well as specialist items including a mechanical cookie scoop, handy cake lifter and superb bench scraper. They also have specialist pans, like the Stacked Circle Cakelette Pan, create exquisite layered cakes and cookies ready for decorating and piping as well as fun, individual pies and cakes. Lastly, they will also be offering cake servers and beautiful cookie jars.

My lucky sister, Tammy, got to meet Buddy at Monte Casino and I am just beyond jealous!
