One very lucky person is going to start the New Year with this beautiful box filled with some of our favourite things!

Hellooo December! (+Giveaway)

Hello our beautiful people! We hope you are doing great!

The year has flown by so quickly, and we are both SO very grateful to still be here at the end of it, happy, alive and very blessed. It’s Christmas, and we’re excited! Now we can sing our favourite carol and it’d be totally appropriate! If you’re wondering what our favourite Carol is, it’s called In Dulci Jubilo, and it’s a BEAUTIFUL blend of English and Latin, mostly latin, holding great significance for us since the year 2007! You can soothe your soul over here. I hope you get the feels. 🙂

We’ve got quite a bit planned for you guys this month, we’ll begin with our first giveaway!

*drum rollllllllll*

I’ve given you guys an earful about how much I love Herbal Essences Hello Hydration for co-washing, and the Nothing But Intense Healing Mask as my deep conditioner.

Giveaway! Giveaway!!

Hello beautiful people!

I’m very happy to announce the first Giveaway of the year! Actually the first sponsored one ever on the blog, many thanks to Natural Nigerian! ^___^

I love mudwashes so so much (and so does she). NN is giving away 2 packs of Natural Nigerian Bentonite Clay, and 2 bottles of her Natural Nigerian Moisture & Shine Detangling Leave-In Conditioner. Yep, one of each product, for 2 lucky readers! However, this will only be delivered within the country, so you should be resident in Nigeria. 🙂

I reviewed the Moisture & Shine Leave-In Conditioner in October last year, you could go read about my experience here.

I know it sounds really weird to wash your hair with clay, but a Mudwash is like my favourite hair thing to do. I’ve loved it since my first try in September. I’d give everyone I love a mudwash if they’d let me! Simple and fast, it’s shampooing + deep conditioning all in one, and it always leaves my hair super clean, super moisturised, and well detangled! My curls love it so much, they POP! You could go learn how to do a mudwash in this post here.

So, if you’re interested in getting these goodies, please go follow the super easy instructions OVER HERE.

Hopefully, we’ll soon see an international giveaway on the blog. *fingers crossed* 😉

This giveaway closes on Monday, the 24th day of March 2014 at 11:59PM Nigerian Time. You have two weeks!

Good luck ladies!




And The Winner Is…

Last month, I put up information about the ‘Better Than Good Hair’ giveaway, and 15 people responded!

Thank you so much guys for your feedback about the blog. Your thoughts are much much appreciated!

Right now, I wish I were Ellen Degeneres so I could give everyone something, sigh- but as I have only one book, we can only have one winner. 😦
