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. So I’m very happy to announce that thanks to Sizzelle.com, you can be one of three lucky winners, and get to feel the love! We have two bottles of Hello Hydration to giveaway, and one tub of the Intense Healing Mask.

And it’s really simple.

200,000Blog views!!! (4)

Hello lovers!

It’s 3AM in the morning and you’re probably asleep.

But I’m super excited and this can’t wait. Two hours ago, we hit the 200,000 mark for blog views!!!

The Kink and I has been read 200,000 times!! And to us, this is a really big deal! 🙂

A very big THANK YOU to everyone that has read this blog, left a comment, shared a link, emailed, connected with us in any way! Thank you to every business  that has supported us!

When I started this blog, this particular space on wordpress, I had no idea what it would be. I had just decided to transition (for the third time!), and I did not even know that I’d grow to care for my hair so much as to even write about it. Before I changed the address, this blog was called Purple Ozymandias. And then it was Que Bueno Bueno (don’t ask) lol before it became The Kink and I- and from then on, I had the tiny confidence to tell other people (apart from MeeMee) about it. Blogging here has been tremendous for my hair journey, and I’m sure it’s doing good for MeeMee too! It helps to share here, and talk about hair as much as we want, knowing you understand.

Thank you for sticking with me, for sticking with us!

We actually thought we’d be hitting this mark in October or November- we did not expect it’d come this soon! So- it’s going to take some planning to do (we have oceans between us *sniff sniff*) but a big, nice giveaway is in order, we promise!

Thank you lovers, thank you friends, thank you for the encouragement, thank you for everything you have been to The Kink and I. God bless you all!
