There is no doubt now that Summer is in full swing and what better way to get in the mood than with some new, stylish looks to suit any occasion.
Benmore Centre has been offering convenience through its world class shopping since 1964 and together with Miladys, invited us for a full, fabulous fashion experience.
Miladys has been around long enough to know what makes women tick and 'believe a good day starts with a good outfit'.
We couldn't agree more!
If you are in the market for a swimsuit or holiday accessories, you really will find that holiday feeling at Miladys with a wide range of styles and stunning prints to suit every style and size. The throws and wraps are exquisite and the perfect accompaniment to any bikini or swimsuit around the pool at home or beach side, if you are lucky enough to spend some summertime there.
This girl was a on a frock mission though and the variety was mind-blowing! Long, short, sparkly, smart, floral, bold, casual, frilly, soft, sexy, pretty...the list goes on and on.
How is a girl to choose? I decided to cover a few eventualities and settled on a casual green print, (almost a bit of a Christmas vibe) T-shirt dress with peekaboo shoulders, so comfortable and light.
My second choice was the stripe look, which is still very much in fashion and the simple belted shirtdress is the perfect addiction to any wardrobe to be dressed up with a pair of heels or a more simple everyday look with some sparkly, summer sandals or sneakers.
The star of my selection has to be the navy, floral, chiffon dress that falls so beautifully and makes me feel like a million bucks! I even wore it to an event that afternoon and got comments from pretty much everyone.
How much can a girl get three dresses for in this day and age, I hear you ask? You may think I am pulling your leg, but, all three came in at a little over R1000, great value!
A shopping experience is always that much more fun when there are a few of you and luckily I had a couple of experts on hand to get opinion on my choices of purchase. My longtime friend and blogger, Heather Hook and the lovely store manager, Emeldah, who both helped with the very difficult choice of what to select to give me my Miladys holiday feels.
Benmore Centre, situated in the heart of Sandton, offers luxurious indulgences to life's everyday necessities featuring a range of stores to suit every need.

One of Sandton’s most stylish outdoor spaces – San Deck – has reopened following a full refurbishment, bringing to life a uniquely African meeting spot carved into the Sandton skyline.
With a spectacular location in the iconic Sandton Sun (https://www.tsogosun.com/sandton-sun-hotel), the San Deck (https://www.tsogosun.com/san-deck) is vibrant, stylish, and comfortable. Designed to take full advantage of the spectacular Highveld sunsets, and offering guests a variety of unique spaces, San Deck is a place to share experiences of social dining and sophisticated artisanal beverages.
San Deck’s food and drinks menu reflect the style and variety of its setting. In keeping with the ethos of Sandton Sun, the food menu showcases fine, seasonal, and sustainable South African produce, and features a wide selection of snack and meal options. Social options include items such as sushi, oysters, homemade deck sliders, calamari and other South African favourites.
The beverage menu is a true showcase of the quality of South African spirit, beer, wine, MCC and cider producers. Premium local spirits include craft gin and rum, single grain, single malt, and blended whisky, brandy, vodka, agave, and liqueurs. The menu includes a range of local craft beers and ciders, and an exceptional wine list, including a variety of champagnes, sparkling wine and a selection of Tsogo Sun’s auction wines. Imported premium spirits and bespoke cocktails offer variety for every occasion.
San’s inviting and unique outdoor spaces offer a retreat for relaxation or energising, easing in or winding down. A new rooftop garden area is created through the intricate use of metal lattice screens, foliage and trees, different levels, atmospheric lighting, eye-catching design elements and comfortable, relaxed seating.
The music complements the contemporary and energetic heart of South Africa’s business hub, and in the evenings, resident DJs deliver a pulsating Afrocentric beat.
Ravi Nadasen, COO of Tsogo Sun hotels, says, “The full refurbishment of the Sandton Sun’s San Deck, coupled with the introduction of menus designed for sharing and enjoying throughout the day and into the night, along with San Deck’s exceptional local artisanal beverage options will ensure memorable experiences for local and international guests, providing a beautiful space for intimate get togethers or for celebratory events with family, friends and colleagues.”
Tsogo Sun has a portfolio of over 100 hotels and 13 casino and entertainment destinations throughout South Africa, Africa and the Seychelles. For more details, visit https://www.tsogosun.com.
Sunlight Dishwashing Liquid is the number 1 dishwashing liquid brand trusted by South Africans for its ability to cut through the greasiest residue on dirty dishes with just a few drops. Now Sunlight has launched two new dishwashing liquids under the Sunlight Extra range, each with added natural ingredients designed to offer consumers a dishwashing experience with more benefits – one that is inspired by nature.
Sunlight has recognised the shift in consumer consciousness towards a more natural, healthier lifestyle. Bourgeoning stress levels and the resulting illnesses caused by an increasingly demanding lifestyle have made the desire for a more nature-centric lifestyle an increasingly compelling concept. With this in mind, Sunlight is using the launch of their nature-inspired Extra Range, to inspire consumers to bring nature into their daily lifestyle
“As market leaders, Sunlight is embarking on a journey with our consumers – one that honours our customers’ need for efficacious household cleaning products while allowing us to offer them added benefits by adding naturally sourced ingredients,” explains Nobuhle Ngubane of Sunlight South Africa.
Sunlight Extra Anti-Bacterial Dishwashing Liquid contains lactic acid and mint. As an organic compound that is found naturally in our bodies, lactic acid is also a powerful anti-bacterial that is safe and effective for regular household use. Mint has also been used for generations as a natural antibiotic with antiviral, fungicidal and antioxidant properties. The lactic acid ensures that Sunlight Extra Anti-Bacterial kills 99.9% of germs found on a typical kitchen cleaning sponge, leaving you with peace of mind.
In the same way, Sunlight Extra Nature contains added aloe and mineral salts, both of which have been used for generations for their healing and soothing properties. This means that Sunlight Extra Nature is gentle on your hands while being safe for the whole family to use.
“The Sunlight Extra range is just the start of an ongoing long-term plan to lead the environmental agenda for big-name brands in South Africa,” continues Nobuhle “But it is not only about helping our customers move into a more environmentally conscious way of living; it’s also about reminding consumers of the incredible resource we have in nature, and that there is much to be learned and gained by bringing a little more nature into our homes.”
