A Sunglass Hut Valentines

VDAY_MK6006_OO9272_3b_07_370

It’s that time of the year again where the thoughts of roses, anonymous love letters and boxes of chocolates are on everyone’s mind – Valentines Day.

To showcase the holiday of love Sunglass Hut’s latest campaign features Georgia May Jagger and Michael Slaggert sneaking around in a private rose garden. Flirtation at it’s best while breaking the rules.

Since everyone deserves the chance to be spoiled on Valentines day we’ve teamed up with Sunglass Hut to spoil two lucky readers with an amazing giveaway: Two tickets to Spier’s Valentines Day movie screening taking place on the 13th February at 5:30pm, a delicious picnic basket as well as a pair of sunglasses for themselves and their partner. Guests will also be treated to canapés and cocktails before the movie starts. Perfection right?

So how does one stand a chance to win such a grand experience? First of all make sure you following both myself, @emmamenteath, and @SunglassHutSA on twitter. Leave a comment on this post and send me a tweet describing how your loved one created an instant heartwarming moment that stole your heart using the hashtag #InstantHeartWarmer.

For example a few Valentines Day’s back my boyfriend woke me up to surprise breakfast featuring bunny toast. Yes he made me toast with Miffy the Bunny on it! It wasn’t anything fancy or expensive but he knew how much I loved bunnies and the thought that went into making me that slice of toast meant the world to me.

As far as gifting goes a pair of sunnies always fairs well, after all who doesn’t love owning a variety of sunglasses?

Victorian

Shot 02

A feminine style that is built with detailing and fabrics, the Victorian trend is everywhere. From the pussy-bow blouse’s from Gucci to the slip dresses from Alexander McQueen. Think multiple ruffles, light silks and sheer lace.

I opted for a more muted and modern version of the Victorian trend: a ruffled blouse, pair of vintage denims, a cute pair of pointed ankle boots from SLY010 and a bag that’s something between Victorian and Western.

Rich Mnisi

RM 01

Recently I attended the L’Ormarins Queen’s Plate, one of the world’s most prestigious race horse events. For those of you that aren’t familiar with it the theme every year is blue and white, reflecting timeless lines while still showcasing the wearers individuality.

This year I decided to ditch the department stores and chose to support local. We have so many incredibly talented young creatives here in South Africa that don’t get enough exposure simple due to lack of budget or/and lack of business skills. With the blog and it’s various social media platforms growing I’ve been beginning to feel it’s part of my responsibility to feature these talented designers on My Life in Pink.

So for the LQP I wore this spectacular blue and white masterpiece from  local designer Rich Mnisi.

“Rich Mnisi is a contemporary fashion brand founded in 2014 by LISOF graduate and Africa Fashion International Young Designer of the Year 2014. With a global view catering for an aspirational market, the brand is young at heart and explores the treasures engraved within Africa and the world of modern culture and heritage to tell the unique stories of then, now and soon.”

L’Ormarins Queen’s Plate

shot 1

Every year like clockwork during the first weekend of January there’s only one place you’ll find me, The L’Ormarins Queen’s Plate. Dressed up in blue and white sipping champagne and placing bets.

Rated as one of the world’s top five horse-racing events by The Telegraph in Britain, this internationally recognised and locally renowned event is one of the most established equestrian to-dos on the globe’s calendar.

Here’s a little preview of my fifth LQP and a sneak peak of my Rich Mnisi outfit I wore, full outfit post coming tomorrow so stay tuned.

It used to keep me entertained for hours!” Emma loves styling outfits that make her feel a certain way or express her emotions.
