About Topknotch

Hello! I’m Rachael Williams and I’m so glad you stopped by my baby, Topknotch (It’s almost like Bruiser is to Elle Woods in Legally Blonde!)

I’ve loved makeup ever since I can remember, so this little space of the world wide web is a place for me to engage with you and let you know what’s currently in my seriously overcrowded handbag. I also live in the most beautiful city in the world, Cape Town, so expect to see some event coverage and things to do around here. Don’t worry – I’ll also let you know where you can find all the good coffee too!

At Topknotch you’ll find beauty reviews to hopefully provide you with insight, knowledge, humor and confidence when you stand at the makeup counter desperately trying not to make eye contact with the sales women in case she comes over and recommends a product you have no idea about. Buyers remorse is a real thing, people! In addition to beauty, I cover a variety of lifestyle and travel content too.

I’m passionate about all things digital so I’m going to also try and cover a few topics for female entrepreneurs out there who would like to start their own blog or websites. I believe that knowledge is power, and giving others knowledge or tools can empower them to make a difference in their own communities.

If you are a PR company, individual seller or brand, and wish to be featured on Topknotch, let’s talk! I will happily consider any inquiries if I believe they are appropriate to the tone and style of my blog. If you’d like to send an email, you can do so here.

Get in touch if you’d also just like to chat! I’m always willing to discuss things like the perils of blue eyeshadow.
