Happy New Year boos! I hope 2017 is everything and more for you and that all your dreams come true.
After taking a break over the festive season, I feel ready and rested to tackle the blog for another year and bring you great content as per usual. Over the holidays, I enjoyed lots of hours of not doing anything – it was quite nice not to be on any schedule. I took the most delicious afternoon naps and ate everything that my heart desired!
Thank you again for the support for my blog in 2016, it really means a lot! Here’s to growing my blog to greater heights in 2017!
Hey boos, it’s about that time of the year! After blogging for a full year straight – I can officially say, I am tiredt! Thus I will be taking a blogging break from now till mid January 2017. I will take this time out to relax, be with family and just have as many lie ins as I can manage. I’ll be spending most of my break in Durban, with a few stints in my hometown. I am actually looking forward to spending the festive season in Durban.
For my break, there will be no new posts on my blog and no videos on my Youtube channel. However, you can catch up on the 100+ posts that I have published on the blog and the 50+ videos uploaded to my YouTube channel in 2016.
I hope you all have a great festive season, thank you for all the support and I will see you again in the new year!
Today is my 31st birthday *throws confetti*! I am one of those people who are not scared of growing older – in fact I embrace it; it was not always like this though. For the first time in a long time I do not have plans for today after the hectic month and past weekend that I’ve had, in fact this year – my birthday was the last thing on my mind in November. However, I am grateful for all the years that I have been blessed with in this life. 31 is a weird age because it’s not as wow as 30 – it’s just there, confirming that I am well into my thirties.
Welcome to the spring 2016 edition of my taking stock posts – I can’t believe that I’m doing the 7th edition already. You can catch up on my previous taking stock posts here. I love going through them to see where my mind was at certain points in my life. I hope you guys enjoy the bit of insight into my life that these posts bring… let’s do this!
My blog in it’s current home and domain is now a year old, yippeeeee!!! In the past year, I have extended my blog to being more than just about hair (even though hair is still a major component), I now include all my other likes such a beauty, travel and food. It has been a great blogging year – I have met new and wonderful blogger friends and had great opportunities coming my way. I have also launched my YouTube channel from January 2016 – which is an extension of the blog. Thank you to everyone who reads my posts and engages with me, you guys are the real MVP! Here’s to many more years of blogging.
So sponsored posts can be a contentious issue in the blogging world. I have seen people on other blogs commenting how the blog ends up looking like an advertising space when there is too much sponsored content. However, as a blogger it is also nice (more than nice) to earn some extra money on the side by doing sponsored content. So where does one draw the line? How much is too much? How about disclosure, how does that work out?
