Birthday Celebration & Big Announcement

Well hello there beautiful! I just want to give a massive shoutout to all those who sent blessings on my birthday. Your wishes have been received with so much gratitude and appreciation. Thank you so much. 

My day was spent with colleagues and loved ones and I could not have been happier. 
I held a blanket drive at work to donate to the Twitter Blanket Drive (which was a huge success btw),
Spent some time with +Ronell  (who’s birthday was a day before mine) at the gorgeous Taj Hotel on Wale Street. Followed by volunteering at the StreetSmart stand at the Good Food & Wine Show, thanks to Melanie Burke. I then got to my mom’s place with dinner, balloons, champagne, gifts and a whole lot of love awaiting my arrival. 
The next day was filled with dancing, fun, family, friends and merriment. 
Thanks to all my loved ones who helped out and partied with me.
Best. Birthday. Ever.

The Announcement

No, I’m not gonna pull a Beyonce and tell you all that I’m vegan ( I mean, really?!) 
Since it’s winter and we are all going through hair challenges right now, I thought it would be the perfect time to do … drum roll please…

The 3 Month Hair Growth Challenge

That’s right, starting this July the challenge is on! If you’ve tried my hair growth recipe (please read the recipe tab carefully) you know that it works, so why not challenge each other. I will be posting updates on the challenge and yes, I will even be giving away goodies to a few lucky participants. 
So… will you be joining me? Leave your comment below to enter. 
More details next week. 
As always, 

Stay Gold, Mandy

    So glad to finally have found a South African Hair/Beauty Blogger…looking at the expensive splurge products Americans invest in, its refreshing to come back down to earth & realise we have natural remedies not swamped with harsh chemicals.Definitely makes me more confident to be a bossiekop 🙂 & definitely on this journey to longer, healthier curls
