We have had the hottest Christmas in my province, in my hometown we had temperatures up to 41 degrees Celsius (I think about 100 degrees F) with a warm breeze accompanying it. We were dying of the heat, but I still had a good day cooking and eating.

Hope you guys are having a blessed day.

[social media] Instagram love

I have started an Instagram page for my blog so I can post pictures of all things hair interesting up in there. I actually prefer blogs with more writing than pictures – so I will try keep my blog like that as well.
In the few days I have had my account, I have enjoyed following all the healthy hair accounts out there – and there are a whole lot!

I will nominate these bloggers for this award

Here are the 7 things about me

[1] I am so keen on learning new things to the point of being obsessive about it. When I started learning about healthy hair in 2012 – I would spend hours reading articles and blogs about hair stuff, now that I think I know enough to get by, my new obsession is make-up.

[2] I love singing (even though my voice is not the best) – I know the words to almost every single song that I like. In my car I am always singing at the top of my voice, and sometimes dancing – I don’t really care who sees me.

[3] I take a selfie (or 10) every single day, without fail – mostly I do it to document my different daily make-up looks and at the end of the week I make a collage of all the weeks looks.

[4] I am trying not to share a lot about my life on social media (I used to do this a lot before), but on my BBM I am an over sharer because I only have the closest people to me as my contacts.

[5] I love making lists for everything – shopping lists, to-do lists etc – nothing brings me more joy than ticking items off my list. Sometimes if I complete a task that wasn’t on my list, I put it on just so I can tick it off 😀

[6] I am turning 29 in a couple of weeks and for my 29th year – I am busy compiling a list of 30 things I want to do before I turn 30 – it is going be a busy year!

[7] I love watching CNN, its probably the channel I watch most on TV – I lived in a place where there were only 2 channels in English: CNN and MTV, so I learnt to love it then and it has been a firm favourite since.

30 days of water

I have decided to join the 30 days of water challenge

I already do drink a minimum of a litre of water per day during the week – but I always struggle to carry this momentum over to the weekends. I think this challenge will help me to get my weekend water intake on. So for the next 30 days, weekends included – I will drink a minimum of 1 litre of water.
