Hi and welcome to “BeautySavy”!
I’m Luisa Malan, originally from Scotland but grew up in the “Mothercity” Cape Town and wouldn’t choose to live anywhere else in the world. I have just turned the “fabulous 41” and am blessed with a wonderful husband and 2 children that keep me immensely busy and drive me sometimes crazily insane.
By trade, I am a Marketer and have just spent the past 11 years working as the Marketing Manager on International, prestigious Brands such as Oscar de la Renta, Boucheron, Van Cleef & Arpels, Juicy Couture, Ermenigildo Zegna, Stella McCartney, Roger & Gallet, Guerlain, La Prairie and Shiseido. This has created my love for beautifully crafted fragrances (I have a wall full of them), an understanding of targeted and worthwhile skincare, as well as an appreciation of luxurious make-up (a girl can never have enough!).
When I am not working or running after my children, you will find me mountain biking, at the gym or running. I believe in the saying “healthy body – healthy mind” and try and live by it. That doesn’t mean that I don’t appreciate a good glass of wine though – that’s how I stay sane! is a beauty blog that features only the products and brands that I deem to be of a high standard. It’s not about a cheap fix, but rather a site featuring tried and tested products that are of the utmost quality and innovation.
Although I believe that beauty comes from within, there are some tricks of the trade that I think everyone should know and that I want to share with you. So, I hope you enjoy my ramblings….
