How are things?
We apologise for not having our posts in the So You Want To Blog & Salon Stories series last week. This was because I had a hectic week spiced with tech glitches, and MeeMee is away, having a blast on vacation- but more about this later. 🙂
It’s the second month of the year, and how nice is it that we have TWO giveaways! Hopefully, we can keep this up- because we think you guys are pretty awesome for reading, and this is how we say thanks ^_^
Baby Bend Over…
What did you get up to over the weekend? Did you run the Lagos Marathon? Beyonce made my Saturday with the Formation video (ahhh I’ll just spare you guys my feels!) but wayy before that, I dragged myself to ‘Yoga With Stacey’ in the morning, and I’m really happy I did.
I’ve been interested in yoga for a while now, but learning on YouTube hasn’t worked for me. I want to learn the basics in a proper class, and when I have that, I’m pretty sure I can cope virtually. I didn’t really know what to expect from this class- I honestly thought yoga was just a bunch of stretching exercises that should be easy for you if you’re flexible. I was quite surprised to find that yoga actually counts as a workout. Don’t believe me? Ask my hamstrings, and everything going on right now in the back of my legs!
The main intention to get into yoga was for my mind, but I hope I can stick with it for both the benefit of mind and body. The cost of attending one class is 1500 Naira, which isn’t bad at all. I learnt some poses for starters, and she corrected my posturing, something you should never take for granted when doing any form of exercise!
Giveaway #1: Yoga With Stacey
If you’d like to attend a free class, I have two passes to give away, courtesy Stacey. It was really sweet of her to give me these after class, so here’s what you should do to stand a chance to win:
- Follow @YogaWithStacey on Twitter and/or @Yoga_with_Stacey on Instagram.
- Leave a comment under this post with your handle, saying “I want to get bendy with Stacey!”
Like so: “I want to get bendy with Stacey! -@thekinkandixx”
Make it to a Yoga With Stacey class in Ikeja or Ikoyi. She’ll soon be a regular at Stranger, Lekki- but these cards are valid for her independent classes only, that is, in Ikeja and Ikoyi. See her Instagram or Twitter for more details.
This giveaway is limited to Lagos (because the classes are in Lagos), and it ends on Friday 19th February, 2016.
Giveaway #2: For Colored Girls!
How many articles and blog posts have you read about the dangers of coloring (natural) hair? We can’t count! Yes, it’s important to understand the impact of dye on your hair, it really is- but should that stop you or scare you? We think not!
We’ve got 2 bottles of the Shea Moisture Baotein Precious Oils Complex Vibrant Color Clear Shine Glaze to give away. This product promises to boost your hair colour and prevent fading, while silkening your hair, delivering shine, and helping you recover your strength & elasticity. You (should) know Shea Moisture always comes correct, and this product worth $20, is from their Salon Professional line of products.
This giveaway is strictly for the ladies bold enough to rock their colour. Not the ones that will do (like MeeMee lol, she’s dyeing her hair grey in a bit), but if you’re actually rocking color in your hair right now, this is for you!
How To Enter:
- Post a picture of you rocking your dyed color, on Twitter or Instagram or Facebook. No hashtag necessary. Just tag us in it ( of course, this is the only way we will see it) OR
- If you’re shy of posting on Social Media, email us your photo instead. I’m nosy, so please tell me more about your color when you do. What/who was your inspiration? What dye did you use? Did you dye at home or at the salon? How do you feel about it? Anything and everything, I want to know! [email@example.com]
This giveaway ends February 29. It is open to anyone in Nigeria (that’s how far we can deliver), but if you’re outside the country, feel free to join in the fun and send us your fierce photos! 🙂
Alrightie boos. Have a great week ahead! Take names and kick ass!!
Keep Up With Us!
